First Poster For Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

The first poster for Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol is here, thanks to Yahoo and I must say it’s kind of disappointing. The first trailer for the film was released at the beginning of the summer and it looked really impressive. Tom Cruise looks in top form and director Brad Bird looks like he chose a good project for his venture from animated to live-action films, but the problem with this poster is the lack of originality.

If the image looks familiar don’t be alarmed because it’s actually just a variation of a promo image we posted back in August, but this time with a layer of coding to help give it that secret spy feel. I guess you can’t really judge this type of action film from a simple poster like this that was probably whipped up in Photoshop in 10 minutes, but it still leaves us fans disappointed with the lazy and generic approach.

Hopefully the film doesn’t suffer from the same symptoms as the poster when it opens in theaters on December 21st, 2011.

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol also features Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton and Tom Wilkinson.
