"With Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol leading the box office this Holiday season it is clear that movie-goers responded very favorably to the IMAX early engagement strategy," said IMAX CEO Richard L.

"Fans and critics all over the world who previewed this blockbuster in IMAX generated the positive word-of-mouth and social media buzz that helped drive the strong box office results we see today and we believe this will continue to support the film's success throughout its run."

"We are honored that Paramount and the MI:4 filmmakers entrusted IMAX to put the picture's best foot forward and be the word-of-mouth ambassadors that separated it from the rest of the pack," said Greg Foster, Chairman and President, IMAX Filmed Entertainment. We believe the film's success demonstrates how IMAX is bringing 'must see' back to movie-going."

The IMAX release of this fourth installment of Mission: Impossible features approximately 30 minutes of scenes filmed with IMAX cameras. Exclusively in IMAX, these sequences expand to fill the entire screen, and further immerse the audience in the explosive action and vast scope of the film. 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.

The IMAX release of Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol has been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

      @supermanvenom I'm not "Trolling". It's my opinion. Try looking up "Trolling" and then try "Opinion". You will amaze yourself at the results you receive.

          Wasn't impressed with this movie. The whole "Disbanded" scenario is really old and boring.

          There were a couple scenes (Desert chase) and a few others that were of interest and Paula Patton looks amazing.

          Honestly, it's time for Cruise to retire and let Jeremy Renner become the new Ethan Hunt like they originally planned until Cruise pissed his panties and said no.
