Tom Cruise: A Retrospective

4 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Anyone growing into pop culture consciousness during the mid-2000s will be familiar with a certain type of Tom Cruise, one labeled with some criticism in a recent Buzzfeed article as “Tom Cruise 2.0.” To them, Tom Cruise may have first become familiar as Ethan Hunt in the first Mission: Impossible movie, as an action star who, in spite of fearful insurance agents and publicists, prefers to do his own stunts—especially if they include declaring maniacal love for Katie Holmes atop Oprah Winfrey’s couch. He was probably their first introduction to the alien world of Scientology, or perhaps already known as the face of another hero thrust into the supernatural, having once served as the model for the titular character in Disney’s Aladdin.

This Tom Cruise, in spite of several critical successes in the past 10 years, has yet to shake completely the straws of tabloid fodder that prick up every time someone dares, »

Box Office: 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' squashes 'Ant-Man' for no. 1 Friday

11 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After stellar reviews from critics and moviegoers you'd think executives at Paramount Pictures and Skydance would be jumping for joy over the fact that "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" opened to $20.4 million on Friday. In reality they are likely breathing a sigh of relief. The fifth installment in the "Mission: Impossible" movie franchise opened to no. 1 with one of the biggest single day tallies of Tom Cruise's career.  The problem is that the Christopher McQuarrie helmed thriller was expected to do more.  Barring an unexpected Saturday jump (or decline), "Rogue Nation" should end up with $54-55 million for the three-day.  A few weeks ago the studio and the film's major financier were expecting a $60 million plus debut.  Want a scary comparison?  In 2000 "M:i-2" debuted to $57 million. At the time it was the no. 3 opening of all-time.  While the brand has certainly remained resilient, how can a film that is »

Tom Cruise and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation Soar to $20.3 Million Friday Debut

12 hours ago | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Tom Cruise and the Mission: Impossible franchise are each aging like a fine wine. As a big opening for Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation proves, the older and more experienced each gets, the more moviegoers can't seem to get enough of either.

After tallying $4 million from late night showings Thursday, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation from writer/director Christopher McQuarrie achieved liftoff on Friday to earn $20.3 million through its first 24 hours of release. For Cruise and the now five-film movie franchise, that opening day ranks second to none when judged against the other four M:i films.

Bolstered by an "A-" CinemaScore and stellar 93% approval rating at Rotten Tomatoes, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation should top $50 million through Friday and finish somewhere in the neighborhood of $52 million. Only Mission: Impossible II performed better for the franchise with a $57.8 million bow back in 2000.

Friday Box Office: Cruise and 'Mission: Impossible' Do Their Part, But Grosses Lag

13 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation" (Paramount) showed initial strength with a $20.4 million combined Thursday night and Friday gross. The $150 million production is likely to show major international strength to boost it into profit, but these numbers are also strong. It is the best start for a Tom Cruise-starring film (adjusting ticket prices) since "M:i 3" in 2006, although with the caveat that "Ghost Protocol" in 2011 open in 425 IMAX theaters exclusively in 2011 its first weekend. Still, this is above expectations and good news for Paramount. This is about $4 million better than the debut of "Mad Max: Fury Road" in May in a slightly more competitive, summer vacation playtime. Even more impressive, it is only $6 million less than "Terminator: Genisys" amassed on its first three days (it opened on Wednesday, and its Friday was a holiday). "M.I. 5" more than quadrupled the gross of "Vacation" (Warner »

Respect for Tom Cruise

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Matthew Lee on his respect for Tom Cruise

Since 2006, Tom Cruise has been reduced to, for lack of a better phrase, a global joke; a quick source for derision, slander, and mockery among the A-List Hollywood performers for the masses to prod at. There was his Jumping the Couch moment on Oprah, the uncomfortable Scientology interview, his termination with Paramount studios, and M:i:iii underperforming at the box office. In short, 2006 was not a good year for the iconic A-Lister.

Despite such set-backs Cruise still produces and stars in critically and financially successful movies, which proves his presence in Hollywood is unscathed. One needs only to look at 2011’s Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, which would become Cruise’s highest grossing film to date, or the last few films that have received critical acclaim i.e. Edge of Tomorrow. Further, when one looks at Cruise’s career, one gets a sense that »

Christopher McQuarrie Talks ‘Rogue Nation,’ Not Reshooting His Ending & More Tom Cruise Collaborations

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

Writer/director Christopher McQuarrie might see himself as one of the luckiest men on the planet. The screenwriter won an Academy Award for his second produced screenplay (“The Usual Suspects”) and that launched him into directing. But his first feature, “The Way Of The Gun,” was a box office flop and in McQuarrie’s own words landed him into “director’s jail” for about twelve years. While projects developed in the interim, McQuarrie wouldn’t land another credit until 2008 for “Valkyrie” starring Tom Cruise. But before the film was made, it seemed as if Cruise had kept the faith, and in 2007 the trades reported that McQuarrie would tailor several screenplays that the superstar actor was considering. All of them he liked, but he had handpicked McQuarrie to bring them up to snuff. “Valkyrie” was one of the few projects of that time that Cruise actually made, and the actor and »

Box Office: ‘Mission: Impossible 5′ Notches Series-High Opening Day, Eyes $52 Million Weekend

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

Tom Cruise actioner “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” generated $20 million at the Friday box office, marking the biggest opening day in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise.

The Paramount/Skydance release is on track to pull in about $52 million for the weekend in its 3,956 locations, according to studio estimates. The fifth installment in the series, written and directed by Chris Mcquarrie, finds Cruise facing off against a squad of special agents known as the Syndicate. Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner and Rebecca Ferguson also star.

“This is the rare sequel that leaves its franchise feeling not exhausted but surprisingly resurgent at 19 years and counting,” Variety‘s review says of the pic. Cruise has already announced plans for a sixth film.

Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol,” the previous pic in the series, pulled in $209 million in the U.S. and $485 million internationally. The first four “Mission: Impossible” films have totaled more than $2 billion in worldwide grosses. »

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation Review: This Is What Cruise Does Best

16 hours ago | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

There's just something great about the Mission: Impossible film franchise. Since 1996, Tom Cruise has starred as Ethan Hunt, and done his absolute best (he's also a producer and driving force behind the series) to create an American James Bond. And that has never been more evident than in the latest installment, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation.

Picking up where 2011's Ghost Protocol left off, Hunt (Cruise) and his team, Luther (Ving Rhames), Brent (Jeremy Renner), and Benji (Simon Pegg) are working behind the scenes to ensure the world is safe. But unfortunately, their global footprints have created two very big messes: one, in the guise of the CIA, led by Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin) who wants congress to shut down the Imf and for the CIA to absorb their assets, and two in the form of a group of disavowed former agents and spies called the Syndicate, who have banded together to become, »

Second Opinion – Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015)

16 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, 2015.

Directed by Christopher McQuarrie.

Starring Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris and Alec Baldwin.

Synopsis:

Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate – an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the Imf.

Director Christopher McQuarrie (whom recently partnered with Tom Cruise on Jack Reacher) makes an interesting decision to begin Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation with the heavily promoted and marketed, seemingly death-defying stunt of Ethan Hunt running across the wing of a plane, hanging on it, and so many more acrobatic feats that Tom Cruise insisted he do for real. On one hand the movie starts off with an explosion of adrenaline coursing through your body, but it also leaves the question “Did this movie just send its greatest player to bat first?”

The answer is a mixture of »

6 jaw-dropping Tom Cruise stunts from the Mission: Impossible movies

22 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Who needs a stunt man anyway? In the 19 years since Tom Cruise debuted as Ethan Hunt in the first Mission: Impossible, he's made a name for himself as one of Hollywood's biggest in-real-life daredevils.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to re-live these incredible Mission: Impossible stunt moments performed by Cruise himself.

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation review: Tom Cruise's spy series in need of rejuvenation

1. The Langley break-in - Mission: Impossible (1996)

Brian De Palma brought his customary directorial flair to the inaugural Mission, and the film's stand-out sequence saw Hunt and co infiltrate CIA headquarters via a precariously dangling wire.

Cruise did all this himself, even dropping coins into his shoes to level out his body. You can cut the tension with a knife.

2. Runaway train - Mission: Impossible (1996)

Mission's climax saw Hunt climb atop a train careening through the Channel Tunnel then taking down »

Christopher McQuarrie Q&A: On Collaborating With Tom Cruise, And Hanging Him Off A Moving Airplane

31 July 2015 3:22 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

If he’s still known for winning a Best Screenplay Oscar for 1995’s Usual Suspects, Christopher McQuarrie’s next best identification is for being Tom Cruise’s go-to-guy. Sometimes that’s as writer or script doctor, but now more commonly it’s as writer, producer, director, and being Cruise’s accomplice in problem solving the star/producer’s many complex screen vehicles.
