This week, Neil Calloway takes a dim view of Simon Pegg’s comments on the film industry…
This week Simon Pegg cited the French philosopher Jean Baudrillard in an attempt to clarify comments made in an earlier interview about the infantilization of film. Pegg said this “as a society, we are kept in a state of arrested development by dominant forces in order to keep us more pliant. We are made passionate about the things that occupied us as children as a means of drawing our attentions away from the things we really should be invested in, inequality, corruption, economic injustice etc.”
Not only does it sound like slightly like the crazed, paranoid ramblings of a minor character from Spaced, it’s also not true; media moguls do not sit in smoke filled rooms with politicians trying to work out how to distract from famine and pestilence; they make money »

The fifth installment of Mission: Impossible hasn.t even hit theaters, but it looks like the next film in the series is already under way. With the continuing success in the franchise it comes as no surprise that Tom Cruise will be taking on yet another impossible mission, but with more than two months left until Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation hits theaters, it is quite the quick turnaround. Obviously details are very limited at this moment, as word rolls in that tentatively titled Mission: Impossible 6 is only recently underway. The Tracking Board first broke the news that the franchise has apparently already set a new film in motion with Tom Cruise back to reprise his role as Ethan Hunt. The publication also noted that Cruise is returning to produce along with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and J.J. Abrams. Don Granger and Matt Grimm are set as executive producers »

Considering the high-octane action sequel Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, which stars superstar Tom Cruise (Edge Of Tomorrow) alongside an ensemble cast that includes Jeremy Renner (Avengers: Age Of Ultron), Simon Pegg (Star Trek), Ving Rhames (Mission: Impossible), Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules), and Alec Baldwin (The Departed), hasn't even opened yet, this new report may be a tad premature, but according to The Tracking Board, Paramount may already be in the early stages of developing Mission: Impossible 6, which is expected to round out the new trilogy that started with Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Cruise, J.J. Abrams, David Ellison, and Dana Goldberg are all back on as producers for the sixth film with Don Granger and Matt Grimm serving as executive producers and Elizabeth Raposo overseeing development. It's too early to say which cast members will be back, but the report claims that the full ensemble is expected to return, which »

A recent report from NPR details both the effects and the concerns of a growing movie marketplace in China, where government censors aim to bring positive portrayals of the country and its citizens to audiences watching movies within its borders. NPR's Frank Langfitt describes a scene from Mission: Impossible III, which shows Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) walking past the bright lights of Shanghai's cityscape and then past underwear hanging from a clothesline. The scene serves to establish the setting, but you won't find it in the Chinese cut of the film. "The censors felt that it did not portray Shanghai in a positive light," says T.J. Green, CEO of Apex Entertainment, which owns and builds theaters in China. "So that scene was removed from the movie." The erasure of this scene is just one example of many over the course of the last decade or so. If you'll recall, »

It has been Ten years since Tom Cruise famously jumped on Oprah Winfrey's couch while declaring his love for then-wife Katie Holmes. Can you believe it?! It has been a decade since he told Oprah's audience, "I'm in love," before hopping up and down like a madman on that famous gold couch. Do we feel old? Do we feel deceived? Who could've known that the man who was so in love with the Dawson's Creek alum would later get divorced to the subject of his hyperactivities? Color us surprised about the fallout, but at least the Internet has blessed us with the ability to re-watch this momentous occasion all over again. While watching the video on a loop might make you think he's a little »
“Calm yourselves!” That is what Oprah Winfrey had to tell the audience when Tom Cruise appeared on her talk show 10 years ago — little did she know, it would be Cruise himself who needed to calm down. As the world is well aware, the Mission: Impossible star couldn’t contain himself while declaring his love for then-girlfriend Katie Holmes during a 2005 interview with Winfrey. Cruise, who was known as an uber-private celebrity, pumped his fist in the air, kneeled on the floor, and most notably, jumped [...] »

I’m not normally the type to voluntarily offer up my time to watch sports documentaries, but Winning:the Racing Life Of Paul Newman is one of those rare exceptions. Here’s the catch, it’s really not a sports film, but a look into another, lesser known side of the life of Paul Newman, one of the greatest American actors of all-time, and as it turns out, one of the greatest American men of all-time as well.
When you define what makes the perfect man, the perfect American citizen, or even the perfect human being, what comes to mind? The answer to that question will vary greatly, depending on who you ask, and the truth is, it’s a trick question. There is no perfection when it comes to humanity. However, what I discovered from watching this film, co-directed by Adam Carolla and Nate Adams, is that Paul Newman damn near comes close, »

Before Cards Against Humanity, we played Apples to Apples, and if you wanted to make that game any fun at all for someone over 10, you had to have an inside joke wild card. And of course the only good wild card that could win every time no matter what was Helen Keller. Her name has become more synonymous with a meme than with her actual life. And Pro Tip: Helen Keller and Anne Frank are two different people.
But Helen Keller remains so awesome, that this latest movie that you should absolutely give all your money to is so epic that the crazy wild Wtf name Helen Keller vs. Nightwolves cannot even do it justice.
Currently Helen Keller vs. Nightwolves has 16 days left in a $1 million Indiegogo campaign to complete post-production on the film. Directed by Ross Patterson, who wrote the tongue-in-cheek Western novel At Night She Cries While He Rides His Steed, »

2012: the year the movie universe sparked, Universal struggled, and young adult adaptations really took off...
The big blockbusters of summer 2011 were the ones that followed fairly straightforward rules. The majority of them were sequels in linear movie franchises - Harry Potter, Transformers, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Fast & Furious - and it felt for the most part like a template was being followed.
Sure, there were surprises. Bridesmaids broke through and proved to be a massive R-rated hit. X-Men: First Class, meanwhile, came through unscathed - and in fine shape - from its reboot, whilst Jj Abrams took us temporarily back to the 1980s with Super 8. But other than that, the pattern was set: the big, pre-ordained films took the lion's share of the cash, and regular sequels were the order of the day.
The signs of change were there in 2011, of course. Thor was a bigger hit than most were expecting, »
Tom Cruise's million dollar smile wasn't looking so rich yesterday. In fact, when the 52-year-old old was spotted in an Atlanta suburb Tuesday, it appeared to onlookers that he was missing a tooth. But (spoiler alert!), Tom's chompers are all intact, and no, he's not just in serious need of floss...So what's behind his gap-toothed grin?! It's all thanks to the magic of movie makeup! Tom is currently in Georgia shooting for Mena, an upcoming film in which he plays real-life pilot-turned-drug trafficker Barry Seal. Understandably, some locals were a bit confused by the actor's disheveled appearance (if you look closely, you'll see in addition to his "missing" tooth, he also »
Paramount Pictures is in talks with director Ed Zwick and writer Marshall Herskovitz, who previously worked with Tom Cruise on "The Last Samurai," for Cruise's upcoming "Jack Reacher" sequel. The original film was released in 2012 and went on to gross $218 million on a budget of $60 million. The franchise is based on Lee Child's novel series. The sequel will focus on the "Never Go Back" book that was published in 2013. In the book, Reacher heads back to his old military base in Virginia to take a woman to dinner who is now the commanding officer. By the time he gets there, she has been arrested, and Reacher finds himself being charged with pummeling one guy and fathering a child with a woman. He can't remember either transgression but gets to the bottom of it with cunning and sometimes brute force. »
Jack Reacher may not have been the biggest hit of Tom Cruise's career, but it grossed a cool $218m at the box office off a $60m budget. That got it over the sequel line, should all concerned want to make one.
And now they do.
Tom Cruise is set to return as Reacher in a new adventure that's going to be based on the most recent of author Lee Child's novels, Never Go Back. This time though, Christopher McQuarrie - who's currently putting the finishing touches to this summer's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation - won't be directing. Instead, we now learn that the job has gone to Ed Zwick.
Exclusive: Hinting at a long-term relationship in the making, Christopher Woodrow’s Vendian Entertainment has emerged as a key partner with Wild Bunch on Flag Day and has come on board to co-finance and produce Sean Penn’s upcoming drama.
Penn has been in town meeting buyers to talk up the project, which Wild Bunch’s fledgling Los Angeles-based sales arm Insiders is selling here.
Production is scheduled to begin in early 2016, with Penn lined up to direct and star alongside his daughter Dylan Penn.
Flag Day tells of a young journalist who struggles to come to terms with the dark legacy of her father, a loving conman who was eventually arrested for one of the largest counterfeit money operations in Us history.

It wasn’t quite a foregone conclusion but Tom Cruise and Paramount have ploughed ahead with development on a sequel to 2012’s Jack Reacher. It’s now looking like Cruise’s frequent collaborator (and Reacher/Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation director) Christopher McQuarrie won’t be back for the new film, with Deadline reporting that Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz are in talks to sign on behind the camera instead.If the deal is hammered out, it would reunite Cruise with the creative team behind The Last Samurai, with Zwick taking the director’s chair and working on the script with Herskovitz. Given McQuarrie’s busy schedule on Rogue Nation (which is now set to arrive in cinemas on July 30), he hasn’t had the necessary time to devote to Reacher, and Paramount had Equalizer writer Richard Wenk working on a script, which the new duo will rewrite. McQuarrie isn't going to be completely hands-free, »
