Q: Which iconic scene from the first ‘Mission: Impossible’ movie is replicated in the ‘Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol’ trailer and by whom?

Over the past few weeks, Paramount Pictures has released several new ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’ features, including behind-the-scenes video footage of Tom performing his own vertigo inducing stunts from the top of the tallest building in the world, the latest ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’ movie poster and the expanded theatrical trailer.

As you can see, the theatrical trailer starts off with the IMF team strategically situated around the Kremlin. The team is ready to launch their mission when ‘Ethan Hunt’ (Tom Cruise) senses something is not right. Just as ‘Ethan’ instructs his team to “abort” their mission, an explosion rocks through Red Square. The ‘Secretary’ (Tom Wilkinson) informs ‘Ethan’ that the Russians believe the incident is “an undeclared act of war” and the U.S. President has initiated “Ghost Protocol” when they are violently attacked. Disavowed by the President, the surviving members of the IMF team must use whatever resources they have to track down the truth. ‘Ethan’ bluntly lays out their new mission to the team, “we can come back with our target or we don’t come back.”

‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’ stars Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Michael Nyqvist, Vladimir Mashkov, Josh Holloway, Anil Kapoor and Léa Seydoux. Directed by two-time Academy Award winner Brad Bird, the film premieres nationwide on December 21, 2011, with an early release in IMAX theaters on December 16, 2011.
