Trailer. For the 1080p version, hover on the ">HD" button below the video and click "1080p".

At least some of the IMAX shots are immediately recognizable – look at the skyscraper bits near the end. Apparently the rest of the film is anamorphic 35mm.

Unfortunately it looks like it's been graded for the still-trendy-but-getting-really-boring "teal and orange" look. Except in this case they've concentrated mostly on the teal. Oh well.

Something I could have mentioned in the first post right away: the DoP is none other than Robert Elswit. :)

Looks promising. I see what you mean about the Teal tint.

I thought he had fallen out with Paramount and was fired? Who did the kissing up Cruise or the Mount?

Self-Marketing for what? He's an actor. Actor's act.

I'm not denying that. But if you watch his latest movies they seem just to be a showcase for how good Cruise is at doing stunts. Look at me I'm clinging to the windscreen of an SUV, look at me I'm dangling off a perilous cliff face, look at me I'm free falling of this high rise apartment.

Umm, well, it is a Mission: Impossible movie. What do you want him doing, jockeying a desk? I'm pretty sure that Mr. Cruise did NOT do his own stunts off of a building either, unless it involved a less-than ten foot fall.

And saying his latest movies are only about him going through some dangerous stuff is a bit false. On Knight and Day that was true, but the three movies before that: Valkyrie, Tropic Thunder and Lions for Lambs not. And one should never forget Collateral and Magnolia when talking about Tom Cruise acting.

I'm just saying, let the other cast shine a bit as well. Don't hog the camera.

I like Tom Cruise, however I have to admit that he is a bit of a camera whore and has a huge ego. That's Hollywood tho man.

No 3D. 25 or 27 minutes of 15/65mm footage, the exact amount depending on who you ask.

Opening next week on 200 IMAX screens a week before the ”regular” premiere – those will be both 15/70mm and digital, so be careful!

It looks like the 15/70mm preview screenings will all include the Dark Knight Rises preview, too. (The link only mentions USA and UK, but it will also be playing at the Kiwi IMAX, so I guess that means all 15/70mm screens globally then.

Does anybody know about the post process? Somehow I doubt that they went the Nolan route, but I hope that they at least didn’t ruin their 15/65mm footage with a puny 4K DI (like they did in Transformers 2).

I believe Kodak InCamera mentioned a 6K DI for the IMAX footage.

At least this article reveals no DI details – only the fact that 6K HMI’s were used. ;)

So it seems they also shot some 8/70 mm, and even some Super 35 for the 1.40:1 sequences…
