Opens at 9:01 p.m., Thursday, December 15, 2011, for a sneak peek week at the AutoNation® IMAX Theater

Plus Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol ticket buyers will get to experience a six-minute prologue of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES being shown exclusively at the AutoNation® IMAX Theater.

Fort Lauderdale, – December 2, 2011 – Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol: The IMAX Experience®, the highly anticipated fourth installment of the action epic Mission: Impossible franchise from Paramount Pictures, opens midnight, Thursday, December 15, 2011, at the AutoNation® IMAX Theater for an IMAX-only, sneak peek week. The five-day, early preview window marks the first time a domestic feature has been released early in IMAX®. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol opens worldwide on December 21, 2011. Through proprietary IMAX® DMR technology, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol: The IMAX Experience® has been digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience®. With crystal-clear images, laser-aligned digital sound and maximized field of view, IMAX provides the world’s most immersive movie experience.

The film also features approximately 30 minutes of scenes shot with IMAX cameras. These specific sequences will expand to fill the entire screen, exclusively in IMAX, and further immerse the audience in the explosive action and vast scope of the film. The AutoNation® IMAX Theater is the only theater in South Florida where these select scenes can be experienced at their full size on a five-story-high screen. One featured sequence includes the unbelievable stunt performed by Tom Cruise as he scaled the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa Tower in Dubai, providing an up-close, you-are-there experience as only IMAX can.

BONUS: THE DARK NIGHT RISES PROLOGUE: The AutoNation® IMAX Theater is the only theater in South Florida showing the six-minutes-long THE DARK KNIGHT RISES prologue, which will be playing before each show of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises”—the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy—is one of the most anticipated films of 2012, but moviegoers won’t have to wait until next year to see the six-minute opening sequence of the film. The film’s prologue will be unveiled exclusively in select 70mm IMAX® theatres worldwide. It's a definite must-see for all Bat Man fans.

About Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol: The IMAX Experience
Two-time Academy Award®-winner Brad Bird directs, with producers Tom Cruise and J.J. Abrams, the action-packed spy adventure Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.

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. Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is directed by Brad Bird, in his live action film debut, and written by Josh Appelbaum & André Nemec. Cruise, who produces the Mission: Impossible films, is joined by producers J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk. The film will be co-financed by Skydance Productions. Jeffrey Chernov, David Ellison, Paul Schwake and Dana Goldberg are the executive producers.

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol has been rated PG-13 for sequences of intense action and violence. More information about the film can be found at
