As we expected, after a bootleg copy of the French version leaked over the weekend, a fresh official version has now landed and yes, "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol" looks like a supercharged blast.

Tom Cruise is back as Ethan Hunt, and finds an uneasy ally in Jeremy Renner with Paula Patton, Josh Holloway, Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg as the good guys, with Michael Nyqvist, Anil Kapoor, Lea Seydoux and Vladimir Mashkov as the villains. One bit of casting we didn't know about -- Tom Wilkinson -- who appears will just be showing up to get the plot in motion. Also noteworthy is the credit to Christopher McQuarrie who we didn't realize was involved with the script by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec and we're guessing he was brought in for some rewrite work leading to his name on the film. Certainly, he and Cruise are fast friends as he's penned "Valkyrie," a draft of "Top Gun 2" and the Jack Reacher thriller "One Shot" with the actor eyeing the role.

Anyway, enough of us talking about it, check it out for yourself below along with some new pics from the film. The trailer will unspool in front of "Transformers: The Dark Of The Moon" and the film hits on on December 16th.
