Not yet rated; likely PG-13. In theaters 12/21. Ok for kids 14+. http://www.missionimpossible.com/

I love all the Mission: Impossible films and still think Tom Cruise is one of the best action stars of his time. No reason to think this won’t measure up. The story finds the IMF implicated in the bombing of the Kremlin, so Agent Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his new team go rogue to clear their organization’s name. Pixar’s Brad Bird directs (I guess The Incredibles was his warm-up for this film), and other players include producer J.J. Abrams and stars Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Ving Rhames, Tom Wilkinson, Michael Nyqvist, and Josh Holloway. As a side note, Renner’s character was specifically created to replace Cruise’s Ethan Hunt, when Cruise decides to step away from the franchise. Oh, and it’s rumored that six minutes of The Dark Knight Rises will play prior to this movie.
