Just hours after Christopher Nolan revealed the title of his third Batman pic ("The Dark Knight Rises"), Tom Cruise and the cast of Paramount's fourth "Mission: Impossible" have followed suit, unveiling the official name of their upcoming action sequel: "Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol."
Cruise made the "Ghost Protocol" announcement, along with director Brad Bird and thesps Jeremy Renner and Paula Patton, at a press conference Thursday in Dubai where MI4 is currently filming.
"Dubai is very cinematic so we are happy to be here," said Cruise.
Produced by J.J. Abrams and Cruise, "Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol" opens Dec. 16, 2011.
