The rejuvenation of the Mission: Impossible film franchise continues to take shape, judging from the quality of the latest trailer and making-of featurette of the film.

Excitement and anticipation for this Christmas's big Hollywood blockbuster film continues to build up. There might be many reasons to be excited by Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, the latest installment in the Mission: Impossible film series featuring one of Hollywood's favorite sons, Tom Cruise. But there is without a doubt that the hype around this latest iteration is coming from director Brad Bird (who brought us the incredibly awesome animated feature film, The Incredibles, from Pixar in 2004). With a keen eye on characterization and high-octane action sequences and choreography, we are further convinced that the latest sequel from the long-running franchise might just be its best yet.

Hit the jump to check out the new trailer.

Earlier last week, Paramount Pictures released a new featurette of the film, featuring the death-defying stunt performed by Cruise himself as the actor found himself splinting while suspended off mid-air outside Dubai's Burj Khalifa, incidentally the tallest building in the world. Hit the jump to check out the spectacular sequence in the making-of featurette.

For those who still added incentive in watching the film in IMAX, it has been confirmed that a six-minute prologue from The Dark Knight Rises shot in IMAX will be attached to selected IMAX prints of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. However, only these footage will only be screened on the higher resolution 70mm IMAX screens, as opposed to the regular digital IMAX screens. You might remember that Warner Bros. pulled the same stunt back in 2007 prior to the release of The Dark Knight with the epic bank heist scene attached with IMAX prints of I Am Legend.

Over at the graphic department, here's the new poster released last week.

And the IMAX poster.
Here's the official synopsis of the film:

Director Brad Bird and Producer J.J. Abrams bring us the action packed, entertainment event of the holiday season with MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – GHOST PROTOCOL. This is not just another mission. The IMF is shut down when it’s implicated in a global terrorist bombing plot. Ghost Protocol is initiated and Ethan Hunt and his rogue new team must go undercover to clear their organization’s name. No help, no contact, off the grid. You have never seen a mission grittier and more intense than this.
