'Gone Girl' (and Now Oscar Nominee) Rosamund Pike On Landing the Role of a Lifetime

18 minutes ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor's Note: This post is presented in partnership with Movies On Demand. Catch up on this year’s Awards Season contenders and past winners On Demand. Today's selection is 'Gone Girl." This interview originally ran in October.] If you were one of the many who didn't know Rosamund Pike by name last year, chances are you probably do now. As the titular "Gone Girl" in David Fincher's chilling adaptation of Gillian Flynn's hit novel (Flynn also penned the script), Pike has been everywhere promoting the film and wowing everyone who made the thriller the top film of the weekend's box office in the Us. The 35-year-old Brit made her onscreen debut as a Bond girl in 2002's "Die Another Day," and has since gone on to appear in a number of high profile films including Joe Wright's "Pride & Prejudice," "Wrath of the Titans" and the Tom Cruise vehicle "Jack Reacher." Despite all this activity, a plum leading role has evaded the »

Sundance Festival: Alex Gibney's doc pulls back curtain on Scientology

36 minutes ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief premiered Sunday at the Sundance Film Festival to a packed house - not with a star-studded red carpet, but with police protection.

A week before the premiere, the Church of Scientology took out full-page ads in the New York Times and Los Angeles Times claiming the documentary is filled with falsehoods.

Based on Lawrence Wright's 2013 book of the same name, Oscar winner Alex Gibney's film claims that the church routinely intimidates, manipulates and even tortures its members, tracing the rise of the religion and its founder, former science-fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, and his successor as head of the church, David Miscavige. Gibney also interviewed several former Scientology believers, including past executives.

Paul Haggis, director of the Oscar-winning Crash, left the church in 2009 after decades of membership.

Jordan's Top Ten Movies of 2014

1 hour ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Spoiler alert, but Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) was, in fact, not my favorite film of the year. I figured I should just get that out of the way at the start for those of you who feared I might have the same #1 film as Brad and Mike, both of whom listed Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's latest as their favorite film from 2014. Don't get me wrong, I really liked Birdman, but in a surprise to even myself, it didn't make my list, which I think you can pretty much chalk up to the surprisingly good year 2014 wound up being. I was certainly among the scoffers last fall about it being a bit of down year, and just a month or so ago I was of the opinion 2014 offered a lot of films to like, but very few to love. After going through and finalizing my list, I'd like to retract that statement. »

Mission: Impossible 5 Coming Five Months Sooner Than Expected

1 hour ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

Opening a week after Star Wars: The Force Awakens pretty much guarantees that Mission: Impossible 5 will fail to hit the #1 spot at the box office. Sensibly, Paramount Pictures have now moved the movie five months way from it!

Don’t panic though as we won’t be waiting until 2016 to see Tom Cruise return as Ethan Hunt!

Mission: Impossible 5’s new release date is July 31st, this year. This means it will open opposite Southpaw (starring Jake Gyllenhaal), the Point Break remake, and Tarsem Singh’s science fiction thriller Selfless starring Ryan Reynolds.

It’s also sandwiched right between Ant-Man and Fantastic Four, so the busy July will be very interesting to see play out at the box office. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol earned just under $700 million when it opened in 2011.

Directed by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher), Mission: Impossible 5 also stars Jeremy Renner, Alec Baldwin, »

Sundance: ‘Going Clear’ Creators Say Tom Cruise Should Speak Out Against Scientology’s Abuses

3 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

No documentary has inspired more controversy at this year’s Sundance Film Festival than “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.”

It’s a devastating portrait of a religion guided by greed, instead of motivated by altruism. The film alleges that Scientology abuses its rank and file, hitting them up constantly for money, while, in some cases, subjecting them to physical and psychological degradation.

It also points the finger of blame squarely at two of Scientology’s most famous practitioners, John Travolta and Tom Cruise, and shames them for turning a blind eye to the alleged mistreatments.

It’s another hot-button topic for documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney, who took on Wikileaks and Enron in previous films such as “The Smartest Guys in the Room” and “We Steal Secrets.”

Variety set down with Gibney and Lawrence Wright, the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who wrote the book that formed the basis for the film, »

Mission Impossible 5 To Be Released Five Months Early

3 hours ago | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

I think we're all conditioned at this stage to expect a movie to be pushed way back when ever we hear of release date changes. But here comes Mission Impossible 5 to destroy all conceptions, with the announcement that the fifth adventure for Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt and the rest of the crew at the Impossible Missions Force will no long be reaching us on December 25th of this year, but has in fact being pushed forward to August 31st. With the film in production still continuing in London, it will certainly be a rushed post-production, but I have a felling everything will be pulled off without a hitch. »

3 stars (out of 4) Because of a certain religion, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s marriage never had a prayer. That’s just one of the bombshells revealed in the controversial and riveting new documentary, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief. It premiered Sunday, January 25 at the Sundance Film Festival — and it’s already been renounced by the litigious-happy organization.     It doesn’t take a Thetan-level 8 to see why.

Mission: Impossible 5 arriving five months early

10 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paramount movies Mission: Impossible 5, starring Tom Cruise, forward from December to July...

Now here's a sign of confidence. We hear plenty of times about a studio moving a blockbuster movie back, and buying itself some more time at the last minute to sort things out. But how often, within a year of release, does a studio being a film forward by five months?

That's just what Paramount Pictures has done with the still-in-production Mission: Impossible 5. Originally scheduled for December, the film is now going to land on July 31st 2015.

Paramount, in turn, has moved the film Monster Trucks (a live action/animation mash-up) from May to Mission: Impossible 5's original December release date.

The new Mission: Impossible film sees Tom Cruise reprising the role of Ethan Hunt, and teaming up again with his Jack Reacher director, Christopher McQuarrie. Co-starring in the movie are Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, »

Mission Impossible 5 Is Terrified Of Star Wars

19 hours ago | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It seems that Tom Cruise.s Ethan Hunt has made yet another intense escape from perilous danger. though this time it's from the clutches of the release date Death Star that is Star Wars: The Force Awakens! Mission: Impossible 5 - the yet-to-be-subtitled latest entry in the venerable, reliably-performing Cruise franchise - was originally set to break its way into theaters on Christmas Day this year, just one week after The Force Awakens , but now it is being reported that Paramount Pictures has shifted project's release date in a major way to move it away from the sci-fi blockbuster. The news, which comes to us from TheWrap, says that Mission: Impossible 5 will now be heading to theaters a whole five months earlier, and will now be in theaters on July 31st. This date sets it against much more feasibly beatable box-office peers like the remake of Point Break »

Mission: Impossible 5 Moved Up To July 2015 Release

19 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I was talking with a friend yesterday about our most anticipated films of the year, and when checking out a release calendar to remember all of the movies coming out this year, I realized when I got to December that I had completely forgotten a new Mission: Impossible movie is coming out in 2015. But Paramount has just decided to move M:i 5 from its December 25th release up to July 31st, 2015, so we can expect the marketing blitz to begin in the near future, insuring that nobody else forgets about the movie any time soon.

Presumably, the studio shifted the release date to avoid what's sure to be a record-setting box office performance by J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and considering Abrams is producing M:i 5, the move makes sense. Tom Cruise should be a big enough draw to pull audiences in when the film faces »

Paramount Moves Up 'Mission: Impossible 5' To This July

19 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Let's just get right to it: originally slated to drop on Christmas Day, Paramount has ambitiously moved up "Mission: Impossible 5" to July 31st, where it will face off against the "Point Break" remake, Jake Gyllenhaal's boxing flick "Southpaw," and the Ryan Reynolds thing "Self/Less" (how on Earth is that guy still commanding summer release dates?). Clearly it's a sign of confidence on behalf of Paramount, but are they walking right into potential publicity trouble? At Sundance this weekend, Alex Gibney's Scientology documentary, "Going Clear," made its world premiere, providing insight into the organization's shady history and celebrity connections. Among the allegations the film makes, as detailed by The Daily Beast, is that Tom Cruise was pressured to split from Nicole Kidman, with her phone being tapped (apparently his idea), and their adopted children "re-educated" against their mother. Yikes. HBO has the rights to the »

Mission: Impossible 5 Will Hit Theaters This Summer

19 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This summer marks the release of a few tentpole films, each vying for a space at the top. The biggest is most certainly Avengers: Age of Ultron, but there’s also Jurassic World, Ant-Man, and Terminator: Genisys to contend – not to mention all the animated films in the offing. Now we can add yet another franchise installment to our ever-growing list of summer releases, as Mission: Impossible 5 has secured a July 31 release date.

Mission: Impossible 5 marks the return of Tom Cruise and his crew from Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, including Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, and Ving Rhames. The film is directed by Christopher McQuarrie (who also worked with Cruise in Jack Reacher) from a script by Will Staples and Drew Pearce. There are no plot details available yet, though with this new release date we can expect a bit more information to be forthcoming.

Mission: Impossible 5 moved up five months to avoid Star Wars: The Force Awakens

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, it was only a matter of time…

In what is sure to be a wise move on Paramount Pictures’ part, the studio has shifted the release of the fifth instalment of the Mission: Impossible franchise to avoid confrontation with Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, bringing the date forward almost a full five months to July 31st 2015.

Mission: Impossible 5 was originally slated to arrive on Christmas Day, one week after the release of J.J. Abrams’ surefire blockbuster. Mi:5 becomes the second film to move clear of The Force Awakens after Kung Fu Panda 3, which will now land in March 2016.

'Mission: Impossible 5' Moves from Christmas to Summer 2015

20 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm not sure whether I like this news or not. On the one hand I get Mission: Impossible 5 five months earlier than expected, on the other, does this mean director Christopher McQuarrie and team have to rush to meet a new release datec The news came today that Paramount was moving the return of Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible 5 from a December 25 release date, all the way up to July 31, a packed weekend for sure as it includes Antoine Fuqua's Southpaw starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Tarsem Singh's Selfless and the Point Break remake no one asked for. The move means it gets a nice, cushy summer release spot away from the likes of Spectre, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 and Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens. Though it does mean it's opening one weekend ahead of Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four, »

Tom Cruise’s ‘Mission: Impossible 5′ Moved Forward to July 31

20 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount is moving Tom Cruise’s “Mission: Impossible 5″ forward by five months, from Christmas to July 31, 2015.

Christopher McQuarrie directs from a script by Drew Pearce and Will Staples. Cruise produces along with J. J. Abrams, and David Ellison of Skydance Productions.

The move puts “Mission: Impossible 5” on the same weekend when “Guardians of the Galaxy” opened last year and ended up as the highest grossing film of the summer. It also puts “Mission” three months ahead of the Nov. 6 launch of “Spectre,” the next James Bond movie.

Filming began last August in Vienna.

Mission: Impossible 5″ is the fourth title to land on the July 31 date following The Weinstein Co.’s Jake Gyllenhaal boxing drama “Southpaw,” Warner Bros.’ “Point Break” remake and Focus’ sci-fier “Selfless,” starring Ryan Reynolds.

Paramount is also moving its animated “Monster Trucks” action project back from May 29 into the Christmas slot.
