Tom Cruise On The Late Show With David Letterman Talking Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

Continuing the torrid PR pace for Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol,  Tom Cruise hit the Late Show with David Letterman Monday night, the same day M:I4 had its US premiere at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City.

Looking calm and a little relieved to be at the tail end of a long press junket, Cruise talked about — among other things — skiing in Dubai, training for the intensely physical stunts in M:I4, such as climbing the face of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, and hanging from piano wire 140 floors above Dubai’s sun-baked floor.

Blamed for the terrorist bombing of the Kremlin, IMF operative Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is disavowed along with the rest of the agency when the President initiates “Ghost Protocol.” Left without any resources or backup, Ethan must find a way to clear his agency’s name and prevent another attack. To complicate matters further, Ethan is forced to embark on this mission with a team of fellow IMF fugitives whose personal motives he does not fully know.

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

    I think Tom should do another Top Gun, Starting off sort of where the other left off, h is a Top Gun instructor, training some not to much unlike himself and Ice type candidates. While on a training mission at sea they are attacked by the Chinese in air and the ocean destroying several planes and the ship, the surveying team take up in a nearby ally of the US where Tom and his team plan a mission to make things right without causing world war 3.
