Alec Baldwin elected Hiff co-chairman

18 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Alec Baldwin and Randy Mastro have been elected co-chairmen of the Hamptons International Film Festival (Hiff).

Current chairman Stuart Match Suna, a founder of the festival in 1992, will step down and continues to support Hiff as chair emeritus.

“Stuart Match Suna has had a clear vision for Hiff ever since its inception, and I feel very privileged to have been part of such a passionate team,” said Baldwin. “I’m thrilled to continue with the festival as we look to lay the ground for many more exciting years ahead.”

Baldwin has been a longtime supporter of the festival, producing its SummerDocs series for the past seven years and serving as a board member for a decade.

Mastro has been on Hiff’s board for the past nine years and is currently a partner in the New York office of the law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.

Movie Review – Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015)

3 August 2015 2:40 AM, PDT | 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.

After the critical and commercial success of Mi’s fourth outing Ghost Protocol, expectations were high for the fifth instalment of the Mission: Impossible franchise and Rogue Nation delivers a great story with more explosions than you thought possible.

Directly following the events of Ghost Protocol, Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team are on the hunt for the Syndicate. Hunt is a wanted man and his team have been forced to work for the CIA and leave the Imf behind. At the head of the Syndicate is creepy Englishman Solomon Lane (Sean Harris). Whilst not the franchise’s best villain, »

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation opens to $56 million; second-biggest opening of the franchise

3 August 2015 2:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having received a variety of rave reviews (read ours here and here and listen to the podcast review here), it seems as though there is still some life and fun to be had in the Mission: Impossible franchise.

Early reports had it down that Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, the fifth in the series, would have a soft opening, much like the last movie, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, which only opened to $12 million. Simiarly, Tom Cruise’s last blockbuster Edge of Tomorrow also failed to light up the box office. But this was a different story.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation opened this weekend to a superb $56 million domestically, destroying all the competition, including the much-hyped Vacation reboot. The film also made another $65 million overseas, giving it a total of $121 million worldwide.

This is only slightly the second highest opening weekend of the franchise, behind John Woo’s Mission: Impossible II which opened to $57.8 million. »

Tom Cruise wins over the haters

2 August 2015 5:42 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Anecdotal evidence suggests a segment of the Australian population hasn.t forgiven Tom Cruise for divorcing Nicole Kidman or his couch-jumping antics and his Scientology beliefs.

The anti-Cruise factor seems to have dissipated, at least among cinemagoers, judging by last weekend's opening for Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation.

The $150 million Paramount/Skydance picture amassed $5.15 million, including $137,000 in previews, up 21% on the 2011 debut of Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol.

In 27 of 32 international markets, the action-adventure co-starring Rebecca Ferguson, Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner registered the biggest opening of Cruise.s career. (His personal best here is still The War of the Worlds. $6.5 million in 2005).

Written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie (who wrote Valkyrie, Edge Of Tomorrow and Jack Reacher, which he also directed), the fifth instalment of the franchise rang up $55.5 million in the Us and $64.5 million in the rest of the world.

Australian exhibitors were impressed with the opening, »

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

1 August 2015 7:36 AM, PDT | 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)

1 August 2015 7:32 AM, PDT | 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 »

Alec Baldwin: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

31 July 2015 1:58 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount

With the release of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation now upon us, a film that will undoubtedly clean up at the box office and remind us that Tom Cruise’s Peter Pan like action skills still rock, there’s one man in the cast that won’t be relying on bangs or wallops to wow us – just steely-eyed grit and a dry wit.

The man is of course Alec Baldwin, a thesp that, spent most of the eighties starring in yawnsome popcorn pleasers, the nineties churning out more misses than hits, but then found his stride in the nougties to become one of the most intriguing character actors to watch on the big and small screen.

The rise and rise of Baldwin is one to marvel at, with directors such as James Foley, Martin Scorsese and now Christopher McQuarrie slotting the star into their movies, in turn giving him a »

Paramount Pictures served up their new action flick, "Mission Impossible 5: Rogue Nation" into theaters this weekend, and all the top, major movie critics have turned in their reviews. It turns out that most of them liked it with an overall 75 score out of a possible 100 across 42 reviews at the Metacritic.com site. The movie stars: Alec Baldwin, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Tom Cruise and Ving Rhames. We've posted blurbs from a couple of the critics, below. Matt Zoller Seitz from RogerEbert.com, gave it an excellent 100 score, stating: "McQuarrie understands that these films are essentially tall tales with a sense of humor, skating on the edge of parody at all times while maintaining a poker face." Todd McCarthy from The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 90 score. He stated: "The formula of ingredients is familiar and time-tested, to be sure, but some cocktails go down much better than »

Box Office Predictions: 'Mission: Impossible 5' Vs. 'Vacation'

31 July 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After two straight weeks atop the box office, Marvel's Ant-Man will surely be dethroned this weekend, with the arrival of two new releases, Paramount's Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation and New Line Cinema's Vacation. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation will easily take the top spot, somewhere in the low $50 million range, in its first week in theaters. The fifth installment of the lucrative Mission: Impossible franchise is heading into theaters with a strong wave of critical buzz, with a 93% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Even though Vacation debuted on Wednesday, and the reviews haven't been favorable (25% "Rotten" rating), it should still easily take the second place spot.

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation opens in 3,956 theaters today, with action icon Tom Cruise reprising his role as Ethan Hunt for the fifth time. He is joined by stars of 2011's Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames, along with a »

Film Review: ‘Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation’ at Top of Its Game

31 July 2015 5:54 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The sensational summer movie season of 2015 still has some pulse pounding tricks up its sleeve, and “Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation” fulfills that sensation with a wham-bam bag of spy games. Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner are back, joined by femme kick-ass Rebecca Ferguson.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Another advantage in this 5th chapter of the “Mission” series is Christopher McQuarrie (“Edge of Tomorrow”) who conceived the story, wrote the screenplay and directed the film. That kind of creative control is evident in each frame, as the confrontations, escapes, capers and chase scenes are all brilliantly refreshed. There are homages to other thrillers (including a direct Alfred Hitchcock Man-Who-Knew-Too-Much reference), a deeply desperate villain and virtually everything on the line. Also impressive is their decision to not necessarily have a “love interest” for Cruise’s Ethan Hunt, but have the female counterpart as an equal partner as a spy, whose »

Yes, that’s Tom Cruise running on the wing of a cargo plane as it speeds down a runway. Yes, that’s still Cruise hanging from the side of the plane as it’s taking off. And yes, that’s our Tom hanging on the plane at 5000 feet. Why? Simple – because Cruise commits. Cruise delivers. Cruise knows what we want and knows how to get the best from everyone he works with to ensure we get it. He only works with the best, because only the best is good enough.

MI5 Review: Cruise Shows Why After All These Years He Remains a Movie Superstar

30 July 2015 10:58 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation': Tom Cruise. 'Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation': Tom Cruise, the last action hero There are two impossible missions in the latest Mission: Impossible. The first involves Chechen terrorists, political assassinations, the Vienna Opera House, and a car that unlocks when the user places his hand on the driver's side window (Detroit, get on that). The other impossible mission, one that is not only accepted and completed, but conquered and victoriously ground into dust, is proving that 53-year old Tom Cruise is still an action star. As Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation demonstrates with cruel ease, Cruise isn't just an action hero. In the post-movie star age, he is, with apologies to a certain Austrian bodybuilder whose drawing power is all but terminated, the last action hero. What makes him thus is not just his supreme confidence, compact good looks, and million dollar smile. The camera has »

Movie Review: Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

30 July 2015 9:25 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

If you’ve seen any of the marketing for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, you’ve almost certainly seen the image of Tom Cruise gripping the side of a jet plane as it takes off. The outrageous stunt is real, and the laws of modern movie marketing would seem to dictate that this could well be the money shot for the whole movie. So there’s a certain refreshing pleasure in sitting down to watch the film and finding that the plane stunt happens right in the opening sequence. If the trailer’s big wowza moment is just table setting, what could the filmmakers have in store for the final showdown? The answer, as it turns out, is plenty, but also not quite enough. This Mission: Impossible is a remarkably fun and clever continuation of the franchise, but also occasionally frustrating in the way it fails to live up to its own standards. »
