Every once in a while the IMAX release of one film will provide an opportunity to do promotion for another. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, for instance, featured a preview of footage from The Dark Knight Rises when the Tom Cruise thriller came to IMAX theaters in December 2011. Four years later, a new Mission: Impossible film is coming to theaters, and this time you can preview it in IMAX by seeing a different movie. Those who see Terminator Genisys in IMAX theaters will get a five-minute preview of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Details below.
