Once again directed by Sam Mendes (returning after the huge success of Skyfall), the plot features the global criminal organisation Spectre – their first appearance in an Eon Productions film, due to years of legal wrangling, since Diamonds Are Forever in 1971. When a cryptic message from beyond the grave sets Bond into unsanctioned action, a chain reaction is triggered that will propel him around the world and eventually bring him face to face with the author of all his pain…

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol is the fourth instalment in the Mission: Impossible film series. Tom Cruise once again reprises his role as IMF (Impossible Mission Force) agent Ethan Hunt, in an action film that will see him escaping from a Moscow prison before teaming up with faces both familiar – Simon Pegg as IMF technical field agent Benji Dunn – and new – Jeremy Renner and Paula Patton as IMF team members William Brandt and Jane Carter – to tackle nuclear terrorist Kurt Hendricks (Michael Nyqvist). Ghost Protocol marks director Brad Bird’s (The Incredibles) first live-action film.
