OUR resident film expert Gavin Miller gives you the low down on the latest blockbuster movie releases coming out over the Christmas period.

* MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – GHOST PROTOCOL (12A): After a near six-year hiatus Tom Cruise is back as Ethan Hunt in this (kinda) reboot of the Mission: Impossible series – with The Incredibles director Brad Bird behind the camera.

This time Hunt and his team of rogue agents – including The Hurt Locker’s Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg – aim to clear the IMF’s name after it’s implicated in a global terrorist bombing plot at the Kremlin.

* THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO (18): Daniel Craig sees if he can successfully lead as anyone other than James Bond in this Hollywood remake of the hit movie. A Nightmare on Elm Street actress Rooney Mara takes over the role done so impressively by Noomi Rapace in the international version – with Se7en and Fight Club director David Fincher helming.

Fortunately both films are receiving fantastic early reviews.
