6 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. »

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 »

Movie Review – Vacation (2015)

31 July 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Vacation. 2015

Written and Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein.

Starring Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Leslie Mann, Chris Hemsworth, Skyler Gisondo, Steele Stebbins, Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Charlie Day, and Michael Pena.

Synopsis:

Rusty Griswold takes his own family on a road trip to “Walley World” in order to spice things up with his wife and reconnect with his sons.

It isn’t very encouraging when the opening credits of a comedy highlight butt cracks and enlarged horse penises during a montage of postcard photographs, but at least it was a sign to set expectations very low for this sequel/reboot of National Lampoon’s Vacation, now shortened down to simply Vacation. It’s a shame because the movie has a good amount of laughs, but the problem is that it consistently transitions to unfunny scenes featuring an over-reliance on gross-out humor and lazy writing.

'Ghostbusters' Producer Issues (Confusing) Clarification on New Movies

31 July 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

All this back and forth about a possible "Ghostbusters" franchise beyond the upcoming reboot has gotten really confusing. It's dogs and cats living together -- mass hysteria! We know the Paul Feig movie with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth is now filming for a release next year, and there were rumors that a second movie was coming with a male cast (possibly including Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt). But that second movie may not really be happening. Unless it is happening? See if you can follow along...

Here's part of what "Ghostbusters" producer Ivan Reitman told Deadline back in March:

We want to expand the Ghostbusters universe in ways that will include different films, TV shows, merchandise, all things that are part of modern filmed entertainment. This is a branded entertainment, a scary supernatural premise mixed with comedy. Paul Feig's film will be the first version of that, »

31 July 2015 3:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. has released a new featurette for the comedy reboot Vacation, which focusses on Rusty Griswold’s (Ed Helms) douchebag brother-in-law Stone Crandall, played by Chris Hemsworth

The next generation of Griswolds is at it again. “Vacation,” starring Ed Helms (“The Hangover” films) and Christina Applegate (the “Anchorman” films), takes the family on the road for another ill-fated adventure. Following in his father’s footsteps and hoping for some much-needed family bonding, a grown-up Rusty Griswold (Helms) surprises his wife, Debbie (Applegate), and their two sons with a cross-country trip back to America’s “favorite family fun park,” Walley World.

Vacation is set for release on July 29th in the Us and August 21st in the UK, with John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses) making their directorial debut alongside a cast that includes Ed Helms (The Hangover), Christina Applegate (Anchorman »

Vacation's Ed Helms and Christina Applegate talk Wally World and Chris Hemsworth

30 July 2015 3:31 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Rusty (“The Office”’s Ed Helms) returns to Wally World with a new generation of Griswolds in this weekend’s Vacation. With O.G. Griswold Chevy Chase, Christina Applegate, and probable scene-stealer Chris Hemsworth – yes, Thor – by his side, Rusty takes his two sons on their first road trip in a throwback to National Lampoon’s cult heyday.

Vacation also stars Leslie Mann, Keegan-Michael Key, Nick Kroll, and Michael Pena. “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and Pacific Rim’s Charlie Day is also listed in the Vacation cast – as a disturbed river rafting instructor, and I kind of need to see that.

Everything You Need to Know About Chris Hemsworth’s Big Dick in Vacation

30 July 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In Thor, Chris Hemsworth wields a mighty hammer, but in the new reboot of Vacation, he's swinging something considerably more obscene (but just as potent): a giant dick. The member in question comes into play at the movie's midpoint, when our hero Rusty (Ed Helms) makes a pit stop to visit his sister (Leslie Mann) and her well-equipped husband (Hemsworth), the latter of whom carries on half-nude, almost oblivious to the size of his own package. Was it, uh, hard to shoot that scene? We asked writer-directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein how it came together.First, they had to choose the right prosthetic. "It was definitely one of the more surreal aspects of preparing for this movie," Goldstein admitted. "There was a hapless stand-in who first came in when we were looking at the possibilities, and he'd put it on and have to show all the different »

Ivan Reitman shoots down talk of second Ghostbusters movie

30 July 2015 1:48 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we brought you news about a second upcoming Ghostbusters movie, with screenwriter Drew Pearce (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) revealing that he’d finished the script for a instalment from directors Joe and Anthony Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and producer Ivan Reitman, who of course helmed the original two films.

Well, Reitman has now issued a statement, shooting down the report: “There has been a lot of excitement recently about what is happening with the Ghostbusters franchise. As the producer of the new Ghostbusters film, I feel the need to clarify. There is only one new Ghostbusters movie and that is the Paul Feig directed version coming next July, presently filming and going fantastically. The rest is just noise.”

Somewhat bizarrely, Reitman himself contributed to this noise, revealing back in March that the Russos and Pearce would be working on a Ghostbusters movie following Paul Feig’s female-led reboot. »

‘Vacation’ Directors on Griswolds’ New Road Trip and Casting Chris Hemsworth

30 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Though they cut their teeth in the TV world, Jonathan Goldstein (“The New Adventures of Old Christine”) and John Francis Daley (“Bones”) are ready to make a run at the movie biz. After breaking out as writers on the “Horrible Bosses” franchise, the pair are co-writers/directors of New Line’s reboot of classic comedy franchise “Vacation.”

What was it that drew you to this job?

Daley: It was Rusty grown up, with Ed Helms playing him, not Clark Griswold.

Goldstein: The family road trip movie hasn’t changed, and we felt we could bring that to a new generation.

Is there a benefit to writing something you know is getting an R rating?

Daley: Usually, we go as far as we can to make ourselves laugh, but know we have to dial it back in order to get that rating. With an R, we didn’t have to worry about censorship, »

And Now, Chris Hemsworth Talks About Trying On Different Penis Sizes

30 July 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Possibly the most memorable part of the Vacation trailer is that Chris Hemsworth's gigantic manhood is on full display. (Yeah, I said it.) Of course, the obscenely large figure in his briefs isn't his real penis; it's a fake one. In an interview from the movie's premiere, Hemsworth addressed the mammoth prop and how "embarrassing" it was to try on different sizes. You've seriously never seen Hemsworth blush so hard! »

Vacation Review

29 July 2015 8:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Vacation – another discombobulated assortment of immaturity, nostalgic pandering and weightless storytelling. The slow death of mainstream comedy, if you will. Every stupid graffitied phallus and perverse lake of shit is calculated with the cheapest of intentions, because juvenile potty humor seems to have become an underwhelming norm across comedy’s repetitive landscape. John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein promise early on that their unwarranted reboot will stand completely on its own (through yet Another meta-laced conversation), but their efforts are less convincing than Randy Quaid’s fake sex tape. Why? Because No Vacation movie has treated its audience with this little respect. And Vegas Vacation is nothing to brag about, I might add.

In this year’s vacation-from-hell comedy, Rusty Griswold has transformed from a tall, lanky nutcase (played most recently by Ethan Embry) to his All-American-Joe fate as an economy airline pilot (played now by Ed Helms »

‘Vacation’ Looks Like Latest Money-Making Blast From Hollywood’s Past

29 July 2015 5:08 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Hollywood is taking another summer trip back in time with “Vacation,” an R-rated sequel to the 1983 comedy starring Chevy Chase that debuts Wednesday. While some suggest that recycling proven franchises signals creative malaise, the strategy has served the industry well at the box office this year, producing one of its biggest success stories ever. Ed Helms plays a grown-up Rusty, the son of Chase’s Clark Griswold in the original film and the head of the Wally World-bound clan in Warner Bros.’ raunchy redo, which also stars Christina Applegate, Leslie Mann and Chris Hemsworth. Chase and Beverly D’Angelo make cameo appearances in. »

'Ghostbusters' Spinoff Script Finished, Tatum and Pratt Wanted

29 July 2015 2:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Not long after Sony Pictures finalized their plans for an all-female Ghostbusters reboot, a report surfaced that Ghostbusters 4 was also happening, with Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt being eyed to star. That report revealed Drew Pearce (Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation) has come aboard to write the screenplay for this new Ghostbusters adventure, which will be part of a shared universe alongside the reboot. That movie is currently in production under the direction of Paul Feig. While promoting Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, Drew Pearce revealed that he has finished the Ghostbusters 4 screenplay.

"I've finished my work on that in the last couple weeks. Obviously it's top secret, but there's a gigantic bold idea that I came up with, and the Russo brothers - who did Captain America: The Winter Soldier and are doing Captain America: Civil War at the moment - and Ivan Reitman, who did the original movie, are going »

Tatum/Pratt Ghostbusters has a script.

29 July 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While Gambit may be falling apart, looks like Channing Tatum and Chriss Pratt maybe heading into another Cinematic Universe.

Not long after the announcement of the reboot that shocked the world, an all female lead Ghostbusters directed by Bridesmaids director Paul Feig, it was announced that Sony Pictures was putting into production another spinoff. One that involved now mega stars Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum. While Feig was dissappointed and made it clear he had nothing to do with male lead Ghostbusters project, we were intrigued. 

While Pratt has denied his involvment with the project, MTV has spoken to screen writer Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) who says that not only is the project deffinetly in the works, they have a script.

Pearce said "I've finished on that in the last couple of weeks. Obviously it's top secret, but there's a gigantic bold idea that i came up with, »

Vacation Review Roundup: A "Depressing Remake" or "Raucous Delight"?

29 July 2015 12:21 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Judging from most of these reviews, you might need to take a trip of your own after seeing Vacation.  In the National Lampoon's Vacation remake, the Griswold clan—now headed by Ed Helms and Christina Applegate—take a page out of Chevy Chase's playbook and embark on a cross-country adventure with their two sons, played by Skyler Gisondo and Steele Stebbins, to family fun amusement park Wally World. But just as any Griswold family voyage goes, the trip is far from smooth sailing. Enter ridiculous antics: including (but not limited to) Chris Hemsworth's particularly long schlong, a fiery car wreck and a hot-tubbing experience in raw sewage.  Vacation is rated R »

Vacation (2015) – The Review

29 July 2015 7:52 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Oh, can ya’ hear it? That infectious, steady beat emanating from your local multiplex’s state of the art speakers? Is that Lindsay Buckingham imploring you to join him and cruise down the “Holiday Road”? Why of course it is! It’s time again to load up and head out on another Vacation! Oh, but hold up, this isn’t just another excursion, we’re about to switch lanes and take a different route, via the “sequel/reboot highway”. First, lets; a take a glance at our rearview mirror. In the late seventies, the National Lampoon magazine (the counter-culture’s humor monthly of choice) ran a terrific prose article called “Vacation 58″ written by freelancer John Hughes (yes, the future “Brat Pack” patron saint). Jump to 1978 when the mag exploded into movie houses with the smash National Lampoon’S Animal House. The studios desperately wanted more hit flicks from Nl. Unfortunately »
