Mission Impossible is a movie franchise that feels as if it has been built around a theme song. Lalo Schifrin’s mesmeric music, written for the original TV series back in the 1960s, still provides the atmosphere and relentless narrative drive. As soon as you hear the faintest echo of it, you know that the drama is about to quicken and that Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt will respond, Pavlov reaction-style, by performing yet another death defying stunt. »

It was Joy at the UK box office for Disney this past weekend, as Pixar’s Inside Out topped the chart with an opening weekend of £7,376,513, while Marvel’s Ant-Man enjoyed a healthy second weekend of £2.52 million to leave its UK haul just short of £10 million after ten days on release.

It's fitting that Tom Cruise has been talking about Top Gun 2 lately, given that he's recently brought back that lovin' feeling on The Tonight Show. As you may know, Jimmy Fallon likes to engage in lip sync battles with various celebrities and Tom was the latest one to take up the microphone. Yes, it's as ridiculous as you'd think it would be. No, Jimmy Fallon shouldn't... Read More »

Looking to get a jump on Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, New Line's comedy Vacation is hitting the road early and opening in theaters midweek. The comedy, hoping to restart the classic National Lampoon's Vacation franchise, begins rolling out Tuesday night in select theaters before playing everywhere Wednesday. Rogue Nation, returning Tom Cruise in the title role, opens nationwide Friday following Thursday-night previews. Vacation stars Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Leslie Mann and Chris Hemsworth, and is a sequel of sorts to the first National Lampoon's Vacation, directed by Harold Ramis, and picks up as Rusty Griswold (Helms), now grown,

Bob the Musical has been in development for over ten years at this point, with everyone from the Lego Movie directors to the Frozen composers linked at various points. But the latest incarnation seems to be picking up steam, with a high-profile team on board. Tom Cruise has been circling the Disney movie since April, Michel Hazanavicius […]

In the fifth installment of the two-decade-old series, Cruise clings to the side of an Airbus A400 plane during takeoff, holds his breath under water for six minutes, and rappels down the side of the Vienna Opera House. For part six, he’ll likely have to strap himself to the undercarriage of a ballistic missile and go soaring across the Pyongyang skyline if he wants to top himself.
Despite his willingness to risk doing some damage to that beautiful barrel chest, “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” may struggle to bring in crowds. The action adventure is on pace to open to $40 million, a soft opening considering the franchise’s long history and its hefty $150 million pricetag.
“It seems low to me,” said Eric Handler, an analyst with Mkm Partners. »

Tom Cruise is one of the world's biggest movie stars, and all it takes is a few minutes in his presence to see why. He's the guy who hangs off an airplane in order to make a stunt feel more authentic, and then he's the guy who spends hours signing autographs and taking selfies with fans at the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation premiere. He's involved in every square inch of his movies -- from writing to plotting to driving his own motorcycle at 200mph to learning how to hold his breath underwater for six minutes -- and when he's done all that, he even makes time to challenge Jimmy Fallon to a lip-sync competition on The Tonight Show. From a suave performance of The Weekend's "Can't Feel My Face" to an epic serenade of "You've Lost...

Top Gun 2: Producer David Ellison recently proclaimed: "There is no Top Gun 2 without Maverick," the cocky pilot played by Tom Cruise in the 1986 original. Now Cruise himself says: "If I can figure it out, if all of us can figure it out, it’d be fun to do, I’d like to fly those jets again, but we got to do all the jets practical, no CGI on the jets. … If we can figure all that out, and the Department of Defense will allow us to do it, that would be fun.” The project is currently in the scriptwriting stage.

There’s always two things you can expect from a Mission: Impossible movie: the hi-tech gadgets will fail at the most inopportune of moments, and the stunts are going to be bigger and better than before. That latter point is illustrated perfectly with this new clip that sees Ethan (Tom Cruise) and Benji (Simon Pegg) go on one hell of radio through the streets of Morocco. Released: July 30th (Irl/U.K.)/ July 31st (U.S.)Synopsis: With the Imf disbanded, and Ethan (Tom Cruise) out in the cold, the team now faces off against a network of highly skilled special agents, the Syndicate.

Nothing is impossible—just ask Tom Cruise! When the 53-year-old movie star attended the New York City premiere of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation Monday, he admitted to E! News that he'd like to play Imf agent Ethan Hunt for at least three more decades. At what age would Cruise consider saying goodbye to the film franchise, which began in the summer of 1996? "I'm thinking about 90, then I'll cap it off. Something like that!" he said on the red carpet. Cruise imagined what it might be like, joking, "They will be throwing me out of planes in my wheelchair at that point, so whatever it takes, we'll keep going!" For Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Cruise »
Last night, Tom Cruise did his own steamy version of The Weeknd's song of the summer contender "I Can't Feel My Face" during a Jimmy Fallon Lip-Sync Battle. Today, The Weeknd himself took to a mic to lip-sync to his own song. In a seedy lounge. With a couple Mj moves. And is set to fire. "I Can't Feel My Face" is off of The Weeknd's forthcoming full-length, "Beauty Behind the Madness," release date Tba. »

Alec Baldwin brought almost all of his leading ladies to the New York City premiere of his film Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation on Monday night. The actor, who left daughter Carmen at home, was all smiles as he walked the red carpet with his wife, Hilaria, and his oldest daughter, Ireland. Alec's niece Hailey was also in attendance. After chatting with Tom Cruise, Ireland, who showed off her arm tattoos in a black dress, shared some cute father-daughter moments with Alec on the carpet. At one point, she hilariously tried to show her dad how to pose for the cameras like a supermodel. Hilaria, who recently gave birth to her and Alec's second child, son Rafael, also bonded with her stepdaughter before making their way inside. Keep reading to see more of the family's big night, then check out a behind-the-scenes look at Tom's jaw-dropping stunt from the movie. »
Christopher McQuarrie penned and directed that adaptation based on the tenth Reacher novel "One Shot," and it has subsequently had a strong life on disc, VOD and cable - so much so that a sequel based on the novel "Never Go Back" was greenlit.
One surprise though came in May when it was announced that McQuarrie was out and Cruise's "The Last Samurai" director Ed Zwick and writer Marshall Herskovitz would take over the follow-up from Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions. McQuarrie is remaining onboard though as executive producer.
Out doing promotion for "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" which he penned and directed, McQuarrie revealed that he couldn't return to do the second "Jack Reacher" due to his commitments to 'Rogue Nation'. »

Tom Cruise.s Jack Reacher wasn.t an instant hit. The hard-hitting adaptation of Lee Child.s bestselling novels opened to a soft $15.2 million back in December 2012, and went on to earn $80M in the States (but a healthier $138M overseas). It.s one of those movies that more people found on DVD and cable, appreciating the work of Cruise and his director, Christopher McQuarrie. Jack Reacher is leading to a sequel, yet while Cruise is back in the lead role, McQuarrie had to pass, and I wondered why. The director known as "McQ" is making the press rounds on behalf of Mission: Impossible . Rogue Nation, the impossibly entertaining fifth chapter in that action-heavy saga. When I sat across from McQuarrie in Vienna, Austria as part of the Mission world premiere, I asked him about Jack Reacher 2, and why he had to pass on the opportunity to continue what »
The latest Mission: Impossible kicks off with Tom Cruise hanging outside of a plane during takeoff.

The possibility of Top Gun 2 has been thrown around in the past and with Rogue Nation about to hit theaters, talk has picked up once again. Last we heard, Justin Marks (The Jungle Book) had been...
