'Mission: Impossible 5' Clips Show Action-Packed Motorcycle Chase

20 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the three Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation TV spots released earlier this week, Paramount Pictures has debuted two new clips featuring a pair of epic chase sequences. Tom Cruise returns as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, who is seen alongside tech specialist Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg) in one of the scenes, which we've seen part of in the trailer, where Ethan takes out a pair of gun-toting motorcyclists with a simple e-brake maneuver. The second clip shows Ethan on a motorcycle of his own, weaving through highway traffic while trying to dodge more nefarious pursuers.

The story follows Ethan and his team as they 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. Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol stars Jeremy Renner and Ving Rhames return as Brandt and Luther Stickell, with new »

These highly trained operatives are hellbent on creating a new world order through an escalating series of terrorist attacks. Ethan gathers his team and joins forces with disavowed British agent Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), who may or may not be a member of this rogue nation, as the group faces their most impossible mission yet.

Tom Cruise confirms that there's no CGI or body double in Rogue Nation's 727 stunt

3 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

In the first trailer for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) hangs onto the side of an airplane, screaming at Benji (Simon Pegg) to open the doors and to let him inside the 727. That shot is very appropriately teased at the end of the trailer, as everybody and anyone would want to see the rest of that stunt played out on the big screen.

Though the idea behind this shot is impressive in and of itself, what’s more mind-blowing is that Tom Cruise performed the death-defying stunt himself. There’s no body double. There’s no CGI. That’s 100% Tom Cruise pulling off what he calls the most dangerous thing he’s ever done.

 Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation also stars Jeremy Renner and Ving Rhames. It hits Cineplex theatres everywhere on July 31 – with a Cineplex premiere event in twenty select theatres on Monday, July 27! Grab your tickets now before the sell out! »

‘Hawk the Slayer’ to Finally get a sequel!

2 July 2015 10:46 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Legendary swords-and-sorcery film Hawk the Slayer is to get a sequel, 35 years after the original became a cult hit. The 1980 film, which starred John Terry and Jack Palance, has become a true cult classic – famously referred to in Simon Pegg, Jessica Hynes, and Edgar Wright’s seminal comedy Spaced – and a sequel has been talked about since the original film was released.

Rebellion have announced that writer and director Terry Marcel – who helmed the original movie back in 1980 – has agreed with Jason Kingsley OBE, Rebellion’s CEO, on a deal which will see a Kickstarter launched to part-fund the long-talked-about sequel, called Hawk the Hunter. Rebellion will also invest in the movie, with Jason and fellow Rebellion director Chris Kingsley acting as producers. The Oxford-based company, renowned for games titles such as Aliens vs Predator and Sniper Elite, will assist in the Kickstarter campaign and has also acquired the games »

Renner Talks "Rogue Nation" Filming Issues

2 July 2015 8:49 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Paramount showed a lot of confidence in "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" when it moved the film up by five months, and that confidence seems to have paid off with early word from test screenings being that it is one of the best in the series.

Even so, the production did have rumors of some minor problems during filming. One of them might be the actors being kept in the dark due to the secrecy surrounding the movie. Speaking with Playboy, actor Jeremy Renner suggested his time on the film's set wasn't as ideal as he might have hoped, partly because the UK shoot kept him away from his daughter:

"This 'Mission' was like all the 'Mission's - great action set pieces with an idea of a story somewhere in there. There have been four successful versions before this one, so why would I fight the process? I just went »

Audio facility recently worked on Richard Ayoade’s The Double.

UK post production house Molinare has acquired audio facility Hackenbacker from e-Post Media Limited, the owners of Halo Post Production. The purchase was concluded yesterday (July 1).

Molinare recently provided picture and sound on Simon Pegg romantic comedy Man Up and an upcoming TV adaptation of Beowulf for UK broadcaster ITV.

Hackenbacker’s portfolio includes Downton Abbey, recent reboot Thunderbirds Are Go, and The Double from Richard Ayoade.

Hackenbacker’s founder, Nigel Heath, will remain a director of the audio facility and will join the group management team alongside Julie Parmenter and Steve Milne of Molinare, and private equity firms Next Wave Partners and Saphir Capital.

The acquisition will have no impact on the day-to-day operation of either facility or sound department.

Molinare managing director Parmenter said: “We have collaborated on many drama projects over the past three years, including The Musketeers and The 7.39, and with a combination »

3 'Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation' TV Spots Uncover a Conspiracy

1 July 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt learns why the Syndicate has been so hard to find in the first of three new TV spots from Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. The video reveals that the Syndicate is comprised of Imf agents who were already thought to be dead, along with more footage of Tom Cruise hanging off a moving plane, in what may be his most daring stunt yet. Each new TV spot and trailer we see features the actor/daredevil hanging off the plane at a higher altitude then the next, but it remains to be seen how high up Ethan Hunt gets before actually "boarding" the plane.

These videos also give us more footage featuring Jeremy Renner as Brandt, Simon Pegg as Benji Dunn and Ving Rhames as Luther Stickell, all reprising their roles from Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol. We also get more from new cast additions such as Rebecca Ferguson and Alec Baldwin, »

Update Jeremy Renner's 'Mission: Impossible 5' Comments, Plus High Test Audience Scores

1 July 2015 4:55 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Update: Looking further into this, it seems while Jeremy Renner was filming Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation he was also going through a custody battle with his ex-wife, which appears to have been resolved in early April. This is the added source of tension the actor was up against while shooting both M:i 5 and Avengers: Age of Ultron, especially given how far away he was at the time of shooting. For more on the story click here. I typically stay away from this kind of personal stuff and wouldn't have written about his comments had I looked deeper from the start. For that I apologize. My original article follows. As far as the rest of Summer 2015 is concerned, the film I'm looking most forward to seeing is Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Paramount originally slated the film for a December release, but bumped it up to July 31. Whether that »

Jeremy Renner's 'Mission: Impossible 5' Comments Don't Exactly Inspire Confidence

1 July 2015 4:55 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As far as the rest of Summer 2015 is concerned, the film I'm looking most forward to seeing is Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Paramount originally slated the film for a December release, but bumped it up to July 31. Whether that was because they thought Terminator Genisys would be the stinker it turned out to be and were hoping for a true summer hit or whatever other reason they may had, I'm happy to see it a month early. I just hope they haven't sacrificed quality for release date, and if you're one to believe everything that comes out of a film producer's mouth (trust me, don't do that) then you'll believe they haven't sacrificed anything. Speaking with Collider, Skydance exec Dana Goldberg spoke of preview screenings for the film where it is testing higher than the very well received Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol: It is getting better and better with each episode. »

Justin Lin confirms that the title of Star Trek 3 will be Star Trek Beyond

30 June 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's official - the title for the third Star Trek will be Star Trek Beyond.

That title had been heavily rumoured in the press in recent weeks, but it was director Justin Lin who officially confirmed the Beyond tagline on Twitter on Monday (June 29).

Let the next Starfleet voyage begin! #StarTrekBeyond #Llap pic.twitter.com/VZh9YvJgqA

Justin Lin (@trailingjohnson) June 29, 2015

A picture of a revamped Starfleet uniform was accompanied by Lin's caption: "Let the next Starfleet voyage begin! #StarTrekBeyond #Llap."

The 'Llap' hashtage was a reference to the 'live long and prosper' mantra often spoken by Spock, who was played by the late Leonard Nimoy in the original series, and by both Zachary Quinto and Nimoy in the new films.

Little is known about the plot of Star Trek Beyond, other than that Idris Elba is reportedly succeeding Benedict Cumberbatch as its lead villain.

Justin Lin Confirms Star Trek 3 Title

As he gears up to shoot Paramount and Skydance’s third Star Trek, director Justin Lin has simultaneously declared his love for all things Trekkie and revealed the actual title of his anticipated threequel: Star Trek Beyond.

Captioning the first image from the set, of the iconic emblem, Lin “Let the next Starfleet voyage begin! #StarTrekBeyond #Llap.” Of course, that second hashtag is a reference to the late, lamented Leonard Nimoy, who portrayed Spock in the original series and films. It stands for his catchphrase, “Live long and prosper.”
