What They’re Talking About
In this gut-wrencher, Tom scales the outside of the world’s tallest building, shedding life-saving equipment as he climbs. Bring your inhaler! Don’t have one? Bring it anyway.
As punishing a fight scene as you’re likely to see, this good vs. evil encounter features Tom going knuckles up with Michael Nyqvist in a futuristic parking structure. In a matter of minutes, the two men test the bounds of physical endurance.
Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol Synopsis
Blamed for the terrorist bombing of the Kremlin, IMF operative Ethan Hunt 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. Tom Cruise returns in the starring role as Ethan Hunt and is joined by an international cast that includes Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Michael Nyqvist, Vladimir Mashkov, Josh Holloway, Anil Kapoor and Léa Seydoux.
