Alex Garland of 'Ex Machina' follows others who took a writing-to-directing leap

11 April 2015 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Alex Garland, screenwriter of “28 Days Later,” “Sunshine” and “Never Let Me Go,” makes an impressive directorial debut with cerebral sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina” (in theaters today), but Garland waves off the achievement of leaping to directing as “just next in a continuum.” “The truth was that there was no epiphany moment about directing, because I just don’t dignify the directing role the way we’re supposed to,” the British filmmaker told The Dissolve. “There are a few people — like Woody Allen, he’s an auteur, and I’m cool with that. But for me, directing is about collaboration.” Whether directing is a logical next step or a hard-sought achievement for screenwriters, it’s often done by telling studios, “Hey, here’s my next screenplay. You can have it as long as I get to direct.” Preston Sturges — at the time the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood — is noted for »

Christopher McQuarrie Talks Tom Cruise’s Daring Plane Stunt In Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

10 April 2015 7:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now nearing its fifth installment, Mission: Impossible needs no introduction. But if there was ever an actor to steal the spotlight with ever-more-daring stunts, it’s the series’ leading star and secret agent, Tom Cruise. When the maiden trailer for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation hit the interwebs late last month, one of the main takeaways was the star’s airborne stunt, which sees him hanging off the back of a military cargo plane at 3,000 feet. No biggie, right?

In fact, according to director Christopher McQuarrie – who joins Cruise for the pair’s second collaboration following actioner Jack Reacher – the actor jumped at the chance to top his Burj Khalifa stunt from Ghost Protocol. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, here’s what the filmmaker had to share.

“They brought me this plane, and I was looking at the model,” says McQuarrie. “And I said to Tom, ‘What if you were on the outside of this plane? »

New 'Star Trek' TV Series in Development at CBS?

30 March 2015 6:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the weekend, Latino Review reported that CBS is looking to develop a new Star Trek TV series, with Bryan Singer rumored to executive produce through his Bat Hat Harry production company. You may recall that Bryan Singer was also part of a team that pitched a series entitled Star Trek Federation 10 years ago, along with Robert Meyer Burnett and Christopher McQuarrie, with Geoffrey Thorne writing the script. This report alleges that this Star Trek Federation team is all back for the new series, but it seems that may not be the case.

io9 reached out to Robert Meyer Burnett, who said he knows nothing about a new Star Trek TV series for CBS. Of course, that doesn't mean it isn't happening, but if it is, the project is going forward without him. Here's what he had to say below.

"All of the Federation information is true...but we did that Ten Years Ago. »

Rumor: Bryan Singer Could Be Involved In A New 'Star Trek' TV Series

30 March 2015 10:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Here's a new rumor that's sort of an old rumor, but let's go with it. Quite a few years ago, "Star Trek: Federation" was put into development as a possible CBS series, with big names like Robert Burnett, Bryan Singer, and Christopher McQuarrie producing, and Geoffrey Thorne writing it. Then J.J. Abrams rebooted the franchise, and the TV series was effectively killed. But in this era of shared universes, nothing stays dead for long. Latino Review reports that CBS is back at work on a "Star Trek" series, and that Singer is once again being tossed around to take on the gig in some capacity. But that's about it. io9 adds that whatever is being developed is probably new, and has nothing to do with the previous 'Federation' series, which makes a lot of sense, because we'd imagine Skydance will probably want to tie it into the movie series in some manner. »

Star Trek Could be Returning to Television

28 March 2015 7:13 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Latino Review says that CBS is planning to bring Star Trek back to TV. Director Bryan Singer has been suggested as a possible executive producer for the project through his Bad Hat Harry Productions.

It’s been 50 years since the first Star Trek pilot, called “The Cage”, was produced. Next year will be the official 50th anniversary of Star Trek’s network debut as a weekly series. To celebrate this auspicious anniversary, the possibility of a new Star Trek TV series is being seriously considered.

There have been five Trek shows on the small screen (not counting the animated series). The most recent Trek spin-off series, Star Trek: Enterprise, went off the air in 2005. Since then, fans have never stopped asking for a new entry in the Star Trek tele-verse. Despite the new films by Jj Abrams, which have gotten mixed reactions from old-time Trek fans, the call for another spin-off has not stopped. »

Cruise Performs Laugh-Out-Loud Stunts in MI5 Trailer (with Bonus Teaser)

24 March 2015 5:55 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' star Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' trailer: Movie stunt combo "Desperate times. Desperate measures," says Tom Cruise aka Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation trailer aka the Mission: Impossible 5 and/or MI5 trailer. Whatever you call it, that particular line could be read in a number of ways: Tom Cruise's superstardom is in the doldrums – at least that's what we hear from those who see reality only through U.S.-focused lenses – and he needs all the box-office help he can get. Hence, MI5. Hollywood is in dire need of a mammoth domestic blockbuster following a year of mediocre-performing tentpoles at the U.S. box office. Hence, MI5. The world's socioeconomic fabric is about to unravel. Hence, MI5 – so humankind can go with a bang. Not only with a bang, but with mirth as well. »

How Tom Cruise Did That Insane Plane Stunt For Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

23 March 2015 9:39 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The first full trailer for Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation ends with quite a bang, and a stunt that easily rivals the Burj Khalifa sequence in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. The sight of Ethan Hunt hanging on to the side of taking-off airplane is an unbelievable one to behold - and it's only made more impressive when you remember that Tom Cruise actually performed the real stunt himself. But how did this stunt actually get done? The star and director Christopher McQuarrie have revealed all in a recent interview. Timed with the release of the new trailer, Yahoo! UK has posted an extended interview they did with both Cruise and McQuarrie, in which the two men discuss the details behind what looks to be Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation's biggest spectacle sequence. Apparently the idea of riding on the side of a plane is something that the actor has »

Tom Cruise Leads An Agency Of Chaos In Full-Length Trailer For Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

23 March 2015 8:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As promised, Paramount has debuted the first full-length trailer for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and it’s a doozy. Showcasing slick set-pieces, Tom Cruise performing yet more daring stunts and of course, Lalo Schifrin’s indelible theme song, the sizzle reel offers up a brief hint of what we can expect in the upcoming sequel – and yes, those by-now infamous face masks make a return, too.

Speaking about the stunt, Cruise touched upon what is perhaps the film’s flagship set piece: Ethan Hunt hanging from the side of an airbourne plane while a grounded Benji (Simon Pegg) scrambles to unlock the door. According to the veteran daredevil, the cast and crew wanted to perform something that emulated the Burj tower sequence found in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.

“I’ve often sat on airplanes, looked out and thought, ‘What it would be like out there on the wing?'” Cruise said. »

'Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation' Trailer #2 Launches!

23 March 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the 64-second trailer that debuted yesterday, Paramount Pictures has debuted the full trailer for Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. Tom Cruise returns as Ethan Hunt, whose 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. This trailer features a better look at the death-defying plane stunt which we showed you in a November set video.

The trailer comes just a few days after production wrapped on the sequel, which gives director Christopher McQuarrie just over three months to complete post-production before it hits theaters on July 31. The action-thriller was originally set to hit theaters this Christmas, before Paramount pushed the release to July 31 earlier this year. Do you think the filmmaker and his team have enough time to complete post-production?
