A leaked French trailer for Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (aka Mission Impossible 4) has arrived online (via The Playlist) and based on a brief skimming of the bootleg video it looks like the action from Dubai’s Burj Khalifa is a focal point… at least of the trailer and I’m hoping it isn’t the film’s one big action sequence and they aren’t spoiling it for audience’s in the film’s first promo.

The domestic trailer is set to debut in front of Tranformers: Dark of the Moon next week and with this leaked version online I would expect Paramount to move forward and give us a clean HD version no later than Tuesday… that’s just a guess though.

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol is directed by Brad Bird (The Incredibles) and hits theaters on December 16. The film co-stars Ving Rhames, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Vladimir Mashkov, Michael Nyqvist, Josh Holloway, Simon Pegg, Lea Seydoux and Anil Kapoor.
