CATEGORIES Movie NewsThe holiday hit "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" finally arrives on DVD and Blu-ray this week, and we've got an exclusive look at the making of Tom Cruise's jaw-dropping stunt on top of the world's tallest building. If you're more into cute animals than espionage and explosions, then you'll be interested in a special look at Warner Bros.' crowd-pleasing nature doc "Born to Be Wild."
Whether you're DVD or Blu-ray, streaming or rental, Moviefone has the full breakdown on all the home entertainment releases this week.
MOVIEFONE'S PICK OF THE WEEK "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" What's It About? Ethan Hunt and his IMF team are framed for a crime they didn't commit, plotted by a Russian madman with nuclear capabilities. But really, it's just a set-up to some exhilarating, inventive action sequences -- including that heart-stopper on the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. See It Because: At this point in the series, are you still on the fence about "Mission: Impossible"? It's one of the few continuously satisfying blockbuster franchises in Hollywood.
