Following the strong success of Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, it was always highly likely that we were going to get a Mission: Impossible 5.  However, since a solid chunk of the Ghost Protocol was given over to introducing and establishing Jeremy Renner’s character (basically all the parts that weren’t completely awesome) in order for Renner to take over...

Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol
Though the holiday season tends to bring out some blockbusters, Christmas itself is a terrible day for movies. And this year, with Christmas Eve on a Saturday and Christmas on a Sunday, we're not going to see strong weekend numbers from anyone. Something that's going to repeat next weekend with New Year's.
