There are days when I hate Supermallet. And this is one of them. :-)

Oh, and not that I would know or anything, but absolutely see this in a film IMAX theater if at all possible.

Did you watch it with The Dark Knight Rises prologue?

No, Nolan hasn't approved the prologue yet. They're having film stock issues.

just don't go at rush hour (it's a major bitch) and take the airport road NOT the toll road - you'll have to go to the terminal but it's faster and more convienent.

Re: Mission Impossible 4 -- Coming 2011 -- Cruise to star and produce with JJ Abrams

Q: I heard that M:I-4 is starting its IMAX run next Friday. If true, would this be the first time a movie has run in said format before its wide-release date? Good way to stir interest IMO.

yes that's the marketing/release plan of the film. However I find it interesting that IMAX theaters have to choose either this or TinTin (which opens the following Wednesday) - strange that two top tier releases are released both as such.

IMAX has new film stocks for printing and Nolan doesn't like them. But they must have worked it out because we're getting the prologue for a screening on Tuesday.

The only question I have is what is that Paula Patton doing in this film. Don't get me wrong, she's HOT A HELL...I mean DAYUM!!!....but she can't act for shit.

Also, is Ving Rhames in the film? Wikipedia is still painfully out of date on that matter.

Re: Mission Impossible 4 -- Coming 2011 -- Cruise to star and produce with JJ Abrams

I wonder if this movie does anything to pass the torch to Jeremy Renner for future installments if this one is successful? I like the series overall, but am getting kind of tired of it being the Tom Cruise Show. Only the most recent version felt like an ensemble effort.

Good to hear. These M:I movies are always good. Even if not great still enjoyable.

Re: Mission Impossible 4 -- Coming 2011 -- Cruise to star and produce with JJ Abrams

^I love 'em - well, I rewatched the trilogy this week and could barely make it though M:i-II, which I liked at the time... just a parody of an action flick, nearly unwatchable. The first and the third are entertaining as hell though - got my tickets for Thursday at 9pm. Can't wait.

Did they ask Maggie Q to return? Or did "Nikita" interfere?

I think Nikita did interfere.

Bummer.

I loved M:I3, and thought she was great in it.

19 reviews, 100% now. Whatever negative review that was on there is either removed or changed to positive. I hope this is a big hit. Part 3 was incredibly entertaining, but since Tom Cruise jumped on a couch, it couldn't crack $150 mil in the US. Deserved to do better.

According to IMDB, principal photography was from September 2010 to March 2011. That was during active production of Nikita's 1st season, there was no way Maggie Q could have participated. For someone like her who is the lead of her own show, she would only be able to film movies from maybe April to mid-July.

I didn't care for #3. I know a lot of people liked it but it just didn't work for me.
