As the excitement builds for the premiere of ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,’ Paramount Pictures just released this promo photo of a hooded Tom Cruise as ‘Ethan Hunt’ calmly walking away from the Kremlin as Russia’s Red Square burns.
The film’s director, Brad Bird, told Yahoo! Movies that the image was taken from the beginning of the film, setting off the explosive action of ‘M:I – Ghost Protocol’ right from the start. The two-time Oscar winning director also discussed the challenges and rewards of making his live action film directorial debut as well as the origin of the film’s title.
In the eagerly anticipated fourth installment of the ‘Mission: Impossible’ film series, IMF agent, ‘Ethan Hunt’ and his team have been accused of a bombing at the Kremlin and they must rogue in order to clear the organization’s name. As Brad explained to ‘Movie Talk,’ “they’re a group cutoff and that’s what that Ghost Protocol of the title means. Essentially, they don’t have any big support from the IMF. They’re out on their own.”
