Ethan Hunt returns for the fourth installment of the "Mission: Impossible" franchise, and thanks to the trailer we learn a little about what the "Ghost Protocol" in the title is referring to.
The clip starts things off with a literal bang, and before long Tom Cruise's Hunt and Jeremy Renner's Brandt are in the back of a car being told that thanks to an explosion at the Kremlin, the president has initiated "ghost protocol" and the entire IMF has been disavowed.
The trailer then launches into a rapid-fire set of cuts showing off the cast, including Simon Pegg, Paula Patton and Josh Holloway, plus plenty of stunts. What do you think - are you adding this to a must-see list?
"Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" opens in theaters December 16.
