After 19 years, Tom Cruise's first major franchise is still one of Hollywood's best.
As Ethan Hunt, the star turned himself into an action hero with 1996's "Mission: Impossible" -- going Full Cruise with all the running, punching and jumping onto a bullet train from (naturally) an exploding helicopter. The first film was a huge hit, spawning five sequels -- all from different directors, as the series aims to give each "Mission" its own unique fingerprint.
Cruise is back for the latest installment, "Rogue Nation." Before you see the movie this Friday, your mission -- should you choose to accept it -- is to check out these 27 facts about the "Mission" films.
"Mission: Impossible" (1996)

Recently, some of the cast and crew of Starz's hit show, "Outlander," hit up the big 2015 Comic-Con spoiler panel in San Diego,California about a week and a half ago to deliver some new, season 2 spoiler scoopage (video below). The spoiler panel featured stars: Sam Heughan (Jamie), Caitriona Balfe (claire), along with Ronald D. Moore (executive producer/writer), Diana Gabaldon (author) and Maril Davis (executive producer). In the clip, Ronald kicked things off by revealing that season 2 will be set in Paris, and they'll be trying to stop a rebellion, try to change the course of history and Claire will be pregnant. They'll return to Scotland in the 2nd half of the season. Since the 2nd book was very complex, they did stray away from it a bit and changed a few things here and there, and more. Check it out,below. Season 2 is scheduled to premiere sometime in 2016. »

The first season of Outlander was a stirring, sensual affair bolstered by fearless performances, stunning on-location sets, gorgeous production design, and of course the steamy love story between Jamie and Claire that has stolen the hearts, imagination and um, other regions, of book readers for the last 14 years. While at Comic-Con, stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan, executive producer Maril Davis, showrunner Ronald D. Moore, author Diana Gabaldon hit the Ballroom 20 stage to debut first-look footage from season two, talk about their experiences from filming season one, and drink a little scotch. There’s no doubt this is a group that has a good time working together, and it all added up to one of the most fun panels I saw at the con.

A tribe of handsome Scots in kilts took to the streets of San Diego with bagpipes, heralding the arrival of the Comic-Con panel for “Outlander,” the hit time traveler romance from Starz.
Stars Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe, along with author Diana Gabaldon and executive producers Ron Moore and Maril Davis, brought out tribes of devoted fans, who packed the largest ballroom at the convention center late Saturday.
Despite all the kilts and plaids and even some whiskey, the panel focused on the series’ big departure in season two, when Claire (Balfe) and Jamie (Heughan) head to Paris to pursue a new life.
So how will life in France change the story in Season 2?
Based on the second book of the Outlander series, Dragonfly in Amber, season two follows Claire and Jamie to Paris, where they try and stop the Jacobite rebellion, said series creator Ron Moore. The new »

Because that’s when star Sam Heughan busts out just un peu of the language skills he’s been practicing in advance of Season 2, which finds Jamie and Claire living in France.
Outlander just ended a really successful first season on Starz and premiered its gag reel at San Diego Comic-Con. We got a chance to chat with the cast and crew including Diana Gabaldan, writer of the series which the show is based on, Ronald D. Moore, the showrunner, Caitriona Balfe who plays Claire and Sam Heughan who plays Jamie. Last season, Claire fell through a hole in time in some standing stones and ended up married to Jamie, a Scottish man in the eighteenth century. Now she’s revealed her origin and what’s going to happen if the Scottish rebellion takes place. Claire and Jamie travel to France to try to stop Bonnie Prince Charlie and save the Scottish Highlanders in Season 2. Here are some things we learned about the new season.

Who knew the Frasers had such a sense of humor?
The “Outlander” team presented a gag reel from the first season of the Starz series at a panel at Comic-Con on Saturday.
Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe, who star as the romantic leads on the sweeping series based on Diana Gabaldon’s book series, were on hand to introduce the clip, along with executive producer Ronald D.

The “Outlander” panel featured a drinking game and Heughan dressing up like “Once Upon a Time” star Colin O’Donoghue — complete with hook and guyliner — much to the delight of fans.

"Outlander" fans, did you miss any of our exclusive Emmy webchats with the cast and crew of the Starz drama series? We've listed them all below for your viewing pleasure, beginning with the show's superstar Caitriona Balfe and continuing on to leading man Sam Heughan and showrunner Ron Moore. -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders Caitriona Balfe on the show's intensity: "The show is so theatrical that you get to play really big emotions and this heightened life. It's wonderful." Sam Heughan on playing the victim: "I was really looking forward to it. To go to these dark places at the end of the season was really kind of a gift for an actor -- to see their limits and their boundaries." Ron Moore on the show's magic: "It has a lot of different genres that it encompasses. It has romance and historical fiction. There's an action-adventure quotient. »
Spoiler warning: This interview contains plot details for the entirety of “Outlander” season one.
The Emmy race for lead actor in a drama has long been the domain of tortured antiheroes and unrepentant villains, as if “good guys” can no longer be compelling enough to take home TV’s top prize. “Outlander” star Sam Heughan defies that assumption, portraying a character who is the epitome of traditional heroism — Jamie Fraser, a tall, dashing Highland swashbuckler — yet follows a trajectory rarely explored in any mainstream media: a romantic male lead who becomes the victim of brutal physical and sexual assault by a sadistic English army captain called Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies), subverting the traditional TV tropes of period pieces and historical fantasy, where female characters are raped as a seemingly “inevitable” consequence of the time.

According to a recent report from TV Line, the Outlander season 2 peeps have hired actor, Laurence Dobiesz (left) to portray character , Alex Randall, who is the younger brother of the evil villain, Jack Randall. Unlike Jack, Alex is actually described as being “gentle, loving and kind.” Professionally, he will serve as a curate and secretary for the Duke of Sandringham. In addition to that, executive producer Ronald D. Moore, explained what he thinks season 2 will be like, saying: "In probably every which way you can think of, it’s going to be different than Season 1 was, which I think is one of the strengths of the series overall: its continuing evolution.” Laurence Dobiesz's acting credits includes roles in the ITV procedural The Bill and the TV-movies All the King’s Men (BBC) and Great Expectations (Masterpiece Theatre). »

It's easy to recommend Ronald D. Moore's series "Outlander," based on Diana Gabaldon's bestselling novels (25 million copies sold worldwide), which just wrapped up Season One on Starz, to anyone who likes a bodice-ripping historical romance. The time-travel plot certainly sounds like femme fiction: after World War II, British nurse Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and her Ptsd husband Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies) go on vacation in the Scottish highlands, where one of his ancestors used to fight the 18th century Jacobite rebellion, to rekindle their marriage. It's working, until she disappears after touching an ancient rune stone in a forest clearing. She's whisked back in time to 1745, where she encounters the very same Captain "Black Jack" Randall (Menzies, natch) and falls in with a clan of Highlanders who are fiercely opposed to the British. This rough band of warriors look after her as they »

It's easy to recommend Ronald D. Moore's series "Outlander," based on Diana Gabaldon's seven bestselling novels (25 million copies sold worldwide), which just wrapped up Season One on Starz, to anyone who likes a bodice-ripping historical romance.

In a new interview with Cbr's Spin-Off Online, Dorn has revealed that he hasn't received a flat-out rejection from Paramount, who hold the rights. "I don’t know details, but I can tell you that they haven’t said no. So that’s a victory, in itself," he said.
