Dubai world premiere for MI:4

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol will have its world premiere in the UAE when it opens the 8th Dubai International Film Festival on December 7




Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol will have its world premiere in the UAE when it opens the 8th Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) on December 7.

Directed by Oscar-winner Brad Bird and featuring an all-star cast including Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Michael Nyqvist, Vladimir Mashkov, Josh Holloway, Anil Kapoor and Léa Seydoux, the fourth installment in the mega-successful Mission: Impossible franchise has been described as the most inventive, action-filled and visually arresting yet.

Today's joint announcement from Paramount Pictures and the Festival celebrates the Mission: Impossible team’s return to Dubai after extensive filming in the city, including shoots spanning its old town, downtown financial hub and offshore Palm island development.

Incredible stunt sequences feature throughout the movie, including the now iconic scene of Cruise scaling the world’s tallest tower, Dubai’s stunning Burj Khalifa.

Abdulhamid Juma, Chairman of the Dubai International Film Festival, said: “Dubai and the UAE are the ‘Mission: Possible’ of the Arab world, so this link is particularly fitting. On behalf of the people of our amazing city and nation, we thank Paramount Pictures, the Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol producers, Four Star and Gulf Film for choosing to bring this remarkable film to DIFF."

I'm afraid I will have to see this in RL before I believe it exists. It's too shiny and too awesome to be real :P
