After the reveal of the new poster yesterday, we now get a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of the scene in which Tom Cruise shows how truly mad he is by climbing the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Currently the tallest building in the world at 829.84 m (2,723 ft), the star gets swinging about on a piece of rope while director Brad Bird (The Incredibles) looks on and chats gleefully about the scene.
Blamed for the terrorist bombing of the Kremlin, IMF operative Ethan Hunt is disavowed along with the rest of the agency when the President initiates “Ghost Protocol”. Left without any resources or backup, Ethan must find a way to clear his agency’s name and prevent another attack. To complicate matters further, Ethan is forced to embark on this mission with a team of fellow IMF fugitives whose personal motives he does not fully know.
