Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation review – functional old-school action thriller

30 July 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Tom Cruise’s unlikely survival as a traditional action hero continues with this spy-thriller franchise’s fifth instalment, which makes no significant attempts to update the formula

The increasingly stately Tom Cruise/Mission: Impossible action-adventure franchise is now almost 20 years old. It has employed as directors Brian De Palma, John Woo, Jj Abrams, Brad Bird and now Christopher McQuarrie – and got through female leads including Emmanuelle Béart, Thandie Newton and Michelle Monaghan. During its existence, the competing Bourne franchise with Matt Damon has come and gone. But M:i just continues, and so does its star Tom Cruise – now 53 years old, but buff of bod and tight of ab and looking hardly older now than when he started in the series, which gave him a turbocharged boost as an A-list star in an era when such creatures were thought to be becoming extinct. Now he’s even developing Jack Reacher on the side as well. »

27 Things You Didn't Know About the 'Mission: Impossible' Movies

29 July 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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)

1. Before locking down Brian De Palma to direct, the first filmmaker Cruise approached about "Mission" was Sydney Pollack, whom he had worked with previously on Paramount's 1993 summer hit, "The Firm."

2. De Palma designed many of the »

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation review: Tom Cruise just won't let this franchise self-destruct

24 July 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Such is Tom Cruise’s rock-hard commitment to being an action hero you have no choice but to accept this most convoluted of sequels

You can shoot him, stab him, drown him, blow him up or pair him with Thandie Newton, but you can’t stop Ethan Hunt, because he’s played by Tom Cruise. Returning to make a mockery of the series title for a fifth time, Cruise ploughs through Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, a sequel that is slick with silliness, but peppered with enough wit and peril to sustain the franchise’s momentum.

Cruise is – obviously – the definitive modern movie star. A bizarre and indefatigable charismatic force that can make the bad watchable and the average – like Rogue Nation – actually quite fun. It’s all here: the gee-shucks boyishness, the pointy-hand sprinting, the toplessness – conscripted into the service of a secret agent yarn that’s hustled into shape by his Jack Reacher cohort, »

Why Ian McKellen turned down Mission: Impossible II

20 July 2015 11:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

"You can't say no to working with Tom Cruise", said Ian McKellen's agent. One day later, Gandalf and Magneto came calling...

Had fate taken a different journey, then Sir Ian McKellen may never have ended up as Gandalf or Magneto on the big screen. In fact, he came very, very close to a schedule clash that would have ruled him out of both roles.

Casting was underway for Mission: Impossible II at the end of the 1990s, and McKellen was offered a role in the movie, opposite Tom Cruise, who was just coming off his lengthy shoot for Stanley Kubrick's final movie, Eyes Wide Shut. So what happened? "They wouldn't let me see the whole script because I might have spilled the beans", McKellen told People. "I only got my scenes".

As it turned out, those scenes weren't enough. "Well, I couldn't judge from reading just those scenes what the script was like. »

First images from new HBO series Westworld

13 July 2015 9:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

HBO will debut a brand new series based on the classic 1973 Michael Crichton movie Westworld later this year. Lucky crowds at this weekend’s San Diego Comic Con managed to get a first look at the trailer for the new series from Jonathan Nolan, but the network failed to get that trailer online with all of the other promos at the weekend.

What we do have for you however, is a bunch of promotional images for the show for your viewing pleasure.

Westworld is based around the world of a theme park for adults where they can live out their wildest desires without consequences.

Ed Harris, Anthony Hopkins, Jeffrey Wright, James Marsden, Evan Rachel Wood, and Thandie Newton star in HBO’s Westworld, which is set to debut in the Us later this year.

Here are those pics.

HBO's 'Westworld' First Look with Anthony Hopkins and James Marsden

12 July 2015 4:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans who attended the Person of Interest panel at Comic-Con on Saturday were given a surprise treat, the first trailer for HBO's Westworld. While it may seem odd for an HBO trailer to debut during a CBS panel, Person of Interest creator Jonathan Nolan also co-created Westworld, which has been confirmed to debut sometime in 2016 on HBO. The network hasn't released the first trailer yet, but the show's page did debut four new photos, featuring series stars James Marsden, Anthony Hopkins, Thandie Newton, Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the Westworld trailer shown at Sdcc opens with an "ominous character voiceover" saying, "Bring her back online. Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality?" Anthony Hopkins' character is also briefly featured in scenes that, like the photos below, depict a Western setting. The series is based on the 1973 film by Michael Crichton, which is »

HBO Releases New Westworld Images, Confirms 2016 Debut

12 July 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ever since Game of Thrones took off and became the most popular series in the history of HBO, many wondered if the network would try to capitalize on the show’s success by expanding their fantasy/sci-fi output. HBO isn’t one to act hastily, but a potential “companion” series of sorts surfaced last year with Westworld, an adaptation of Michael Crichton’s 1973 film of the same name. Executive produced by Jonathan Nolan (The Dark Knight, Person of Interest), Lisa Joy, and J.J. Abrams, the series is described as "a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin," and if it follows the central premise of the film, it revolves around androids that run amuck in a high-tech theme park. Production on the pilot began last year, with Anthony Hopkins playing the park’s creative visionary and Ed Harris taking on the role of a »
