Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol and the BMW i8 - Click above to watch video after the jump

It's been a long time since we heard from globe-trotting international man of mystery Ethan Hunt, but it looks like he's set to take the screen again with Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. The first trailer for the latest installment of Tom Cruise's action-packed espionage adventure has hit the interwebs, and while it features a host of hand-to-hand combat, gun fights, beautiful ladies and exotic locals, it also boasts a few unique rides from the BMW stable. If you watch closely, you just might catch a glimpse of the upcoming BMW i8, and there's even a gut-wrenching scene with a BMW 6 Series convertible.

Don't say we didn't warn you.

Judging by the quick clip, we'll be sure to catch this one when it lands in theaters. We're particularly stoked to see Simon Pegg play a part in Hunt's quest to redeem his organization's name. Click past the jump to check out the video for yourself.

BMW is back in Hollywood with Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

* 30.06.2011

Munich/Los Angeles. Back in Hollywood. BMW is pleased to announce their participation in the upcoming Paramount Pictures release "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" as the film's main automotive partner.

High performance with fewer emissions is the name of the game: One of the BMW vehicles provided for Tom Cruise´s next film is the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car. It has been recognized as having the most sophisticated technology and the most striking design among the current concept electric supercars. In a few years the BMW i8, which was inspired by the BMW Vision Efficient Dynamics concept vehicle, will enter series production.

"We are thrilled to be involved again in another Hollywood Blockbuster," said Ian Robertson, BMW AG Board Member for Sales and Marketing. "The BMW Group leads the way in developing future mobility with a focus on sustainability. One great example is the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car which will be presented in the film. With its futuristic design and large glass surfaces, the car offers a fascinating perspective on the future of sheer driving pleasure – in combination with maximum efficiency. Also with BMW ConnectedDrive technology, it is the perfect car for Ethan Hunt to outsmart his pursuers through narrow streets and busy city traffic."

Having provided vehicles for outstanding film projects, TV productions, etc. for more than 75 years, entertainment marketing is firmly established as an important building block for the BMW Group's long-term image and product communications.

"Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol", directed by Brad Bird, is scheduled for release mid of December 2011.

      James Bond vs Mission Impossible sounds like a good movie with lots of killings.

      While I loved the old MIssion: Impossible TV show, I've never seen a Tom Cruise movie version, and won't. I detest Tom Cruise and will never watch a movie he has anything to do with, lol.

        But this is directed by Brad Bird! Brad "I directed the Incredibles, Ratatouille and the Iron Giant" Bird. Brad "I also did stuff on the Simpsons back when it was the best show on TV" Bird.

        who gives a **** about the actor's religion, that is literally the most unrelated thing to the film that you could possibly bring up. Your life has to be pretty sad for the most important thing to judge a person by is something as superficial as a religion......

      A trailer this long 5+ months before the movie is out? This thing is probably going to spend 3 months getting CGI work done. This should be awesome!
