Look. The impossible is on its way to theatres this week and in addition, it's available in  IMAX! Directed by two-time Academy Award®-winner Brad Bird, the highly anticipated Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol features about 30 minutes worth of scenes filmed using IMAX cameras! Only in the IMAX theatre will these scenes expand on screen to reveal even more details and bring to life the jaw-dropping, explosive action.
  • [Brief Note: 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.]
“To me, the best example of showmanship now is IMAX.  I wanted the first people that see the film to see it big with a sharp image and great sound systems, so when they went out and talked about the movie they saw, we would know that they had seen it at its best.” said the director.

In one of the action packed scenes, Ethan slips out of a fourth-story window and, while Russian operatives wait for him to give up, grabs his belt, leaps from the building ledge, slides down a nearby power line to the roof of a moving van and rolls off safely onto the street. “That was actually one of the most challenging stunts of the whole movie, as far as difficulty goes,” says stunt coordinator Gregg Smrz.  “We rehearsed that on stage over and over and over, until it was just old hat, and then went and put it into place. Tom nailed it in just a few takes.”

The key word here is:  “Tom.”  That stunt – only a sign of things to come for the audience as they watch the rest of the film – was performed by Cruise himself as was the case throughout the movie. “Tom wants to do everything,” says Smrz, “even when he doesn’t have to.  There are shots where the producers were really getting nervous, and he wanted to take it further and further.  I told him, ‘Tom, nobody is going to know it’s not you.  There’s no reason for you to do this – your double could do it and you can watch.’  He just looked at me and said, ‘But I’m having fun.”

Bird concurs:  “I agree with Tom that when the real guy is there, you get something extra, and the audience can feel it.  It’s not just that you’re seeing the actor’s face, but somebody like Tom adds intensity to it because he’s an actor.  When he falls, he shows you the fear of somebody who’s suddenly being dropped.  It’s a performance and I think people can tell the difference.”

Cruise is intimately involved with every step of the stunt process.  “He loves action films, and he takes them very seriously and does his homework,” says Bird. “He’s a stunt coordinator’s dream because he invests himself completely.  He wants to understand every aspect of how you execute a stunt, how it’s planned.  By the time the day arrives to do the stunt, he’s completely prepared.  He’s made to order for this kind of movie.”  Adds Paula Patton, “It’s why he’s the perfect Ethan Hunt.  He’s fearless.  He lives for danger and excitement and doing the impossible, which he’s done his whole career.”

And our InC-Choice for Song of the Week is 'Won't Back Down' by Eminem feat. Pink! You can't possibly get sick of it.. That's impossible! Okay at least for this period of time. =) Enjoy~!
