The Weird Story Of How Tom Cruise Convinced Jeremy Renner To Do Mission: Impossible The Weird Story Of How Tom Cruise Convinced Jeremy Renner To Do Mission: Impossible

Clearly, Jeremy Renner loves his franchises. That’s why he’s a key player in not just The Avengers, but the Hansel & Gretel, Mission: Impossible and Bourne film series too. It turns out though that even he was previously worried about his roles in each of these franchises, and that he only took the part of William Brandt in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol because Tom Cruise kept nagging him and he wanted to get off the phone.

I’m going to tell you something you probably already figured out for yourself at one point or another: Jeremy Renner is awesome. After spending years under the radar, the actor has absolutely blown up in the past five, earning two Academy Award nominations and taking three roles in some of the biggest action franchises currently running. But how do his five greatest characters stack up against each other?

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol Sequel In Development Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol Sequel In Development

Back in 2006 the future for the Mission: Impossible franchise didn't look great. Despite solid reviews from critics, Mission: Impossible III underperformed at the box office, at least partially due to the rantings and odd behavior of star Tom Cruise. Still, it did make enough internationally to warrant a sequel, and thank god that it did. Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, released last December, turned out to be one of the best blockbusters of 2011...

Holiday Weekend Box Office: 2011 Goes Out A Loser Holiday Weekend Box Office: 2011 Goes Out A Loser

The box office got a boost as 2011 departed and 2012 arrived. Sales were up considerably from last weekend's Christmas holiday and the new year is off to a solid start. But despite those bits of good news, overall 2011 was anything but a banner year for ticket sales.

Between the release of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol as well as the prologue for The Dark Knight Rises, the last few weeks have featured many debates about the benefits of shooting in IMAX vs. 3D. People who are fed up with wearing sunglasses indoors and believe that it doesn’t get more immersive than a 70mm print have been arguing that the real future of cinema is the super big screen that only IMAX can provide.

Meanwhile, in just 425 theaters, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol made $4.7 million on Friday, and is on track to earn $12 million-- which, if it had opened last weekend, would have been almost enough to unseat New Year's Eve from the #1 spot. It's still possible to give a lot of that credit to the prologue for The Dark Knight Rises that's running in front of it

We've seen so many clips from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol that I half expect that the movie will be officially released online tomorrow evening. Over the past few weeks Paramount Pictures has sent out five different clips from the new Brad Bird-directed action movie, some of them featuring incredible stunts, others just showing off banter between co-stars.

When I went to an IMAX preview of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol two months ago, I had the chance to watch two separate sequences from the Brad Bird-directed action film. The first was a scene in which Tom Cruise scaled the outside of Dubai's Burj Khalifa (the tallest building in the world) and the second was an epic chase in the middle of a sandstorm.

While I know that IMAX theaters aren't available everywhere - the release schedule for The Dark Knight Rises prologue tells that story pretty clearly - if you can see Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol in a real IMAX theater you should. That first step out the window that Ethan takes will make you feel like you are right there with him, and you shouldn't be surprised when you start experiencing vertigo.

Set to debut in IMAX on December 16th and be released wide on December 21st, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol has Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) being forced underground with a ragtag group of IMF agents (Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Simon Pegg) after they are blamed for an explosion at the Kremlin in Russia. With no contact or backup, they decide to go rogue and not only clear their names, but find the people who are actually responsible.

While the wide-release date for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is on December 21st, movie-goers that live near IMAX theaters will have the chance to watch the film early as the film opens in those format-specific theaters next Friday. As I reported back in October, 25 minutes of the new film was made using IMAX cameras, the first time that a blockbuster feature has used the technology since Christopher Nolan did it with for 2008's The Dark Knight.

Does he make it? Does he get chopped to bits? It's hard to say (not really, considering he's expected to take over the franchise). I am curious to see that suit in action, as it looks like your ordinary piece of clothing, but listening to the dialogue my guess is that it's some kind of wind suit and Simon Pegg "catching him" means turning on the fan just fast enough so that he will float before hitting the ground.

For obvious reasons Tom Cruise has been the real focus of all the advertising for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, but he's not the only returning cast member. While we've yet to see Ving Rhames in any of the advertisements (he has confirmed that he will be in the movie), Simon Pegg, who is doing his second go-round as computer expert Benji Dunn, is a major part of the film's main group of heroes.

Aside from just looking nice, I think it's interesting how the slug line is different across the posters. The core IFM team of Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, and Paula Patton all get "No Plan. No Backup. No Choice," which fits in with the movie's conceit of the team being framed for bombing the Kremlin and having to go on the run. However, if you pay attention, the text on the other posters reads "No Plan. No Backup. No Mercy."

The BMW spot actually has more of what I’m interested in, which is Bird’s directorial style for his action sequences. As you know, this is a filmmaker coming off two brilliant animated features in The Iron Giant and The Incredibles. And while Dash’s … uh, dash through the jungle in Incredibles ranks as one of my favorite action set pieces in a Pixar film, that doesn’t mean Bird will make a smooth transition to live action.

It's a shame that filming in IMAX isn’t nearly as popular as filming in 3D. As Christopher Nolan proved when he filmed select scenes of 2008’s The Dark Knight using the larger format, IMAX brings epic filmmaking to a whole new level. While Nolan’s incredible achievement hasn’t made the impact that it should have, one director paying attention was Brad Bird, a filmmaker largely known for making animated films such as Pixar’s Ratatouille and The Incredibles.

The Mission: Impossible films have veered all over the map when it comes to quality, but one thing you can always count on is for them to deliver crazy, over-the-top action. Opening this December, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol looks to be no exception. For his first live-action film, director Brad Bird is clearly thinking big, as demonstrated in this new behind-the-scenes featurette, which spotlights Tom Cruise dangling off the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the tallest building on the planet.

Tom Cruise may be the star of the Mission: Impossible franchise, but in the fourth entry - Ghost Protocol - he has one hell of a supporting team surrounding him. In addition to Simon Pegg, who returns for his second go-round as the risible Benji Dunn, Jeremy Renner and Paula Patton have also joined the hero Ethan Hunt in his mission (should he choose to accept it) to save the world from evil.

As reported last week, a six-minute preview for the finale of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, will be attached to IMAX screenings of Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. The situation seems like a win-win, as both films made extensive use of IMAX cameras during production, meaning that the best way to see each individual film will be on the biggest screen imaginable.
