HOLLYWOOD, CA -- Paramount Pictures announced today that MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - GHOST PROTOCOL has become the highest grossing film in the hit franchise, earning $571 million at the worldwide box office since its release in December 2011. The film surpassed MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE II, which previously held the series record with a gross of $546 mil.

In crossing this milestone, the film has also simultaneously now earned over $200 mil at the U.S. box office and $369 mil internationally through Sunday.

"Brad Bird, Tom Cruise, J.J. Abrams and the entire team who worked on MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - GHOST PROTOCOL created an incredibly entertaining film, one that fans worldwide embraced in record numbers," said Paramount's Vice Chairman Rob Moore.

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE-GHOST PROTOCOL is directed by Brad Bird, written by Josh Appelbaum & André Nemec and is produced by Tom Cruise, J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk. Blamed for the terrorist bombing of the Kremlin, IMF operative Ethan Hunt is disavowed along with the rest of the agency when the President initiates "Ghost Protocol."

Left without any resources or backup, Ethan must find a way to clear his agency's name and prevent another attack. To complicate matters further, Ethan is forced to embark on this mission with a team of fellow IMF fugitives whose personal motives he does not fully know.

The film opened exclusively in IMAX on December 16th and everywhere on December 21st, 2011.
