Box Office: ‘Mission: Impossible 5′ Notches Series-High Opening Day, Eyes $52 Million Weekend

4 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tom Cruise actioner “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” generated $20 million at the Friday box office, marking the biggest opening day in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise.

The Paramount/Skydance release is on track to pull in about $52 million for the weekend in its 3,956 locations, according to studio estimates. The fifth installment in the series, written and directed by Chris Mcquarrie, finds Cruise facing off against a squad of special agents known as the Syndicate. Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner and Rebecca Ferguson also star.

“This is the rare sequel that leaves its franchise feeling not exhausted but surprisingly resurgent at 19 years and counting,” Variety‘s review says of the pic. Cruise has already announced plans for a sixth film.

Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol,” the previous pic in the series, pulled in $209 million in the U.S. and $485 million internationally. The first four “Mission: Impossible” films have totaled more than $2 billion in worldwide grosses. »

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation Review: This Is What Cruise Does Best

6 hours ago | 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)

6 hours ago | 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, »

It turns out that most of them liked it with an overall 75 score out of a possible 100 across 42 reviews at the Metacritic.com site.

Todd McCarthy from The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 90 score. He stated: "The formula of ingredients is familiar and time-tested, to be sure, but some cocktails go down much better than »

‘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 »

Jeremy Renner Still Wants That Matt Damon Bourne Crossover Movie

31 July 2015 10:03 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Since Jeremy Renner was meant to take over the mantle of the Bourne movie franchise, when Matt Damon decided he wanted to return, things changed in a big way. It.s been made clear, however, that there are still plans for Renner in the Bourne universe. This leads fans to wonder if the two characters will ever cross paths. If that decision is ever made, you can count Aaron Cross in. Speaking with ScreenRant as part of the promotion tour for Mission:Impossible-Rogue Nation Renner said that he loves the Bourne franchise and would be interested in working with (or against) Damon if the studio ever makes that call: 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.   It.s hard to imagine that there would be a " »

Box Office: ‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’ Makes a Bang With $4 Million on Thursday

31 July 2015 7:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tom Cruise has arrived back in theaters with a bang, with “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” reeling in $4 million on Thursday night.

The preview showings began at 8 p.m. at 2,764 locations. The gross is comparable to “Mad Max,” which earned $3.7 million in evening shows; “World War’s” $3.6 million; and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'” $4.1 million.

Paramount’s fifth “Mission: Impossible” expands to 3,956 locations on Friday. The studio’s extensive marketing campaign has centered on the 53-year-old Cruise clinging to the side of an Airbus A400 plane during takeoff.

The action adventure, which carries a hefty $150 million budget, is on pace to open to $40 million over the weekend. Some analysts think that number could rise to $50 million, given the strong critical support for the film.

Film Review: ‘Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation’ at Top of Its Game

31 July 2015 5:54 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The sensational summer movie season of 2015 still has some pulse pounding tricks up its sleeve, and “Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation” fulfills that sensation with a wham-bam bag of spy games. Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner are back, joined by femme kick-ass Rebecca Ferguson.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Another advantage in this 5th chapter of the “Mission” series is Christopher McQuarrie (“Edge of Tomorrow”) who conceived the story, wrote the screenplay and directed the film. That kind of creative control is evident in each frame, as the confrontations, escapes, capers and chase scenes are all brilliantly refreshed. There are homages to other thrillers (including a direct Alfred Hitchcock Man-Who-Knew-Too-Much reference), a deeply desperate villain and virtually everything on the line. Also impressive is their decision to not necessarily have a “love interest” for Cruise’s Ethan Hunt, but have the female counterpart as an equal partner as a spy, whose »

Cruise Classic: Mission Impossible

31 July 2015 5:28 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Every Friday for the last few weeks we’ve been looking at a different cinematic classic featuring a certain Tom Cruise. Past editions have focussed on Top Gun, Jerry Maguire, and Minority Report, now our attention turns to his one franchise, the Mission Impossible series.

Tom Cruise had his first taste of fame in the 1980’s and, unlike many of his peers, has never really left the spotlight. His body of work features an impressive 38 films giving him the opportunity to work with many acclaimed directors such as Steven Spielberg, Cameron Crowe, Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Oliver Stone, and Stanley Kubrick. He’s also done pretty much every genre under the sun, giving him a wide ranging show-reel. He’s also been the first actor to get his own Sky movies channel devoted purely to films he stars in (available now for a limited time). This week sees his latest »

Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation wins over critics: Tom Cruise back on top form

31 July 2015 3:58 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tom Cruise is back in action as Ethan Hunt from today with the release of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Expect more daredevil stunts, nail-biting tension and Simon Pegg quips aplenty as the Imf face down a new threat in the form of The Syndicate.

We've already had our say on the film (too many stunts, not enough story), but what are the rest saying about Rogue Nation?

Variety

"Writer-director Christopher McQuarrie negotiates with characteristic cleverness and a sly respect for the sheer durability of genre; at once questioning and reaffirming the pleasures of cinematic espionage, this is the rare sequel that leaves its franchise feeling not exhausted but surprisingly resurgent at 19 years and counting."

The Hollywood Reporter

"Thanks to a sharp script that springs a real surprise or two and a pace that never slackens, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation rates as the second-best of the numerous franchise titles of the summer, »

Jeremy Renner: five best moments

31 July 2015 3:08 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Having hit the bullseye as Marvel’s ace archer Hawkeye in the Avengers franchise, he is back this week as Agent Brandt in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Here, we celebrate his best performances

It’s been a blockbusting summer for Jeremy Renner that continues with this week’s release of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, where he stars as right-hand man Agent Brandt. The 44-year-old actor scored a bullseye when he was cast as a reoccurring character in Marvel’s The Avengers franchise. He’ll be on the big screen again as ace archer Hawkeye in Captain America: Civil War next year but it’s often forgotten that he started out as more of a character actor, with intense performances in smaller films, often playing unstable characters. Here’s a list of Renner’s non-Marvel career highlights.

Movie Review – Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015)

31 July 2015 12:48 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.

Yes, that’s Tom Cruise running on the wing of a cargo plane as it speeds down a runway. Yes, that’s still Cruise hanging from the side of the plane as it’s taking off. And yes, that’s our Tom hanging on the plane at 5000 feet. Why? Simple – because Cruise commits. Cruise delivers. Cruise knows what we want and knows how to get the best from everyone he works with to ensure we get it. He only works with the best, because only the best is good enough. Far too often we have to settle »
