Marvel Phase 2: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

4 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

A retrospective look back on Marvel’s Phase 2 films. What did Disney do right? What could be improved?

The commercial success of the McU has proven that comic book films are here to stay. Audiences have enthusiastically embraced Disney’s films that bring their favorite comic book characters to the big screen. Phase 1 was proof of concept. It was possible to have several comic book character-based movies take place in the same universe. The original Avengers film was proof that audiences would enjoy seeing them working together to fight bad guys. Phase 2 is all about maintaining that trend while introducing new faces. Was Disney successful in accomplishing its goals? What can they do to improve Phase 3? This is a summary of my thoughts on the subject.

The Good:

Great Casting

One thing that Disney has gotten resoundingly correct is the casting in their films. The property has been able to »

Tom Cruise wins over the haters

6 hours ago | 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 an estimated $56 million in the Us and $65 million in the rest of the world.

Australian exhibitors were impressed with the opening, »

Best and Worst of 'Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation': Greatest 'Mission' ever?

1 August 2015 9:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Is the fifth time the charm for “Mission: Impossible”?  The almost 20-year-old franchise has gone through some ups and downs over the years, but “Rogue Nation” has arguably earned even better reviews than the last installment, Brad Bird's “Ghost Protocol.”   Who knew? One reason “Rogue Nation” works so well is because of relative newcomer Rebecca Ferguson.  Actually, you might have caught the Swedish actress in last summer’s terrible “Hercules” (she’s probably hoping you forgot), but to most moviegoers this will be her coming out party.  As an undercover agent straddling allegiances between the bad guys (the mysterious Syndicate) and the supposed good guys (MI6) Ferguson is never from the action or the storyline.  Without her seductive performance much of “Rogue Nation” might have seemed overtly familiar. Director and co-screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie probably deserves the lion's share of praise, however.   McQuarrie is new to the “Mission” creative team »

Stars Talk "Bourne 6," "Fantastic 2" Possibilities

1 August 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With the casts of "Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation" and "Fantastic Four" doing press tours, a few key quotes have come up from some of the stars of those films.

First up Jeremy Renner spoke with ScreenRant about the Bourne franchise which he became a part of playing Aaron Cross in "The Bourne Legacy". With Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass returning to the franchise for the next outing, it's already been indicated Renner's character won't cross paths with Damon in the next film.

If the studio did decide to do it in another sequel though, Renner was asked if he'd be up for it. He says: "Yeah, I mean in two seconds. I love that world. I love the character. If they want to do that, I'm in. there's no 'no' coming from this direction."

Meanwhile, the "Fantastic Four" cast was asked by ComicBook.com about what they would like to »

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 »

Box Office: Tom Cruise’s ‘Mission: Impossible’ Flying to $50 Million Weekend

31 July 2015 1:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tom Cruise has been welcomed back to the nation’s multiplexes, with “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” heading for a U.S. opening weekend that could top $50 million, according to early estimates Friday.

That could be four times as much as that for the rebooted “Vacation,” which is underperforming with a projected Friday-Sunday total of $12.5 million and a disappointing five-day cume ar0und $19 million.

Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” is dominating Friday business, with a first-day total of at least $20 million at 3,956 locations. That figure includes $4 million from Thursday-night preview showings.

Paramount’s fifth entry in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise has launched amid a marketing campaign with Cruise — one of the best promoters in the business — hitting the circuit to discuss the film and its eye-popping stunts, such as his clinging to the side of an Airbus A400 plane during takeoff.

The studio has been cautious in its guidance for the action-adventure, »

‘Rogue Nation’: 5 Reasons It’s the Best ‘Mission: Impossible’

31 July 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Just when Tom Cruise had been written off as an action star, he makes a triumphant comeback — at age 53 — with “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation.” The summer’s most entertaining popcorn movie not only eclipses “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Jurassic World” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” with its action sequences, it also brings to mind Cruise’s prime days (“Top Gun,” “Jerry Maguire,” etc.) on the Hollywood A-list.

Here are five reasons “Mission: Impossible 5” is the strongest film in Paramount’s 19-year-old spy franchise.

(1)It’s sleeker than any James Bond movie you can remember.

The first “Mission: Impossible,” which opened nearly two decades ago in 1996, was a standard bigscreen reboot of a TV show. But the franchise received a jolt in 2006 with J.J. Abrams’ “Mission Impossible 3,” which interwove the heart-pumping twists of “Alias” (season one) into a theatrical recipe that could give Daniel Craig as 007 a run for his money. »

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 »
