Husband and wife duo Emily Blunt and John Krasinski will team up onscreen for the first time in the feature film, “A Quiet Place.” But the collaboration is not just one in front of the camera. In addition to starring, Krasinski will also write and direct the horror-suspense film. Though “The Office” alum has directed two films previously, “A Quiet Place,” from Paramount/Platinum Dunes, will mark his first directorial gig with a major studio. Details about the project’s plot are scant so far, however, we do know production is slated to begin this September in upstate New York. We also know that Blunt and Krasinski will play parents, while “Suburbicon” actor Noah Jupe has signed on for the role of their son. Laura Rosenthal and Maribeth Fox are splitting duties as casting directors. Krasinski will executive produce along with Allyson Seeger and Scott Beck & Bryan Woods. »

Tom Cruise remains as popular as ever, despite being in one of the more torturous stages of his career—the Mission: Impossible franchise star now regularly signs up for onscreen manhandling by directors, supernatural beings, and Emily Blunt. His penchant for punishment isn’t something we can really delve into in this particular space, but it has given his career a boost. Fans now wait in line for a chance to see Cruise rapell a skyscraper or hang onto a plane for dear life. And the aging action star keeps upping the ante—he apparently trained for a year to do a stunt in Mission: Impossible 6. Unfortunately, it looks like something went awry in the execution of that stunt or another one on the set of Christopher McQuarrie’s film. According to TMZ, Cruise may have injured himself while attempting to jump from one building to another.

Although the excellent Sicario was a modest hit at best ($84 million in worldwide box office against a $30 million budget), talk of a sequel started during the film's theatrical run and now that talk has turned into reality. The follow-up film, which will be titled Soldado, is moving forward with stars Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro expected to return.
Not coming back for a second run at those Mexican drug cartels are Emily Blunt, who will be off singing and nannying her heart out in Mary Poppins Returns, and director Denis Villenueve, who's working on Blade Runner 2. The new director is Stefano Sollima, best known for creating and directing the Italian TV series Gomorra. »
Despite being critically acclaimed, the 2014 sci-fi Edge of Tomorrow was only a modest success at the box office, so it was a little surprising when it was officially announced that Doug Liman and stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt would be returning for the sequel, titled Live Die Repeat and Repeat.
Ever-modest, director Doug Liman has already claimed that the second movie will “revolutionize how people make sequels”, and now the filmmaker has been chatting to Cinema Blend about what the follow-up has in store for Tom Cruise’s Bill Cage.
“You know, it’s a sequel that’s a prequel. That being said, he has a way better arc in the sequel. Because in Live Die Repeat, he’s basically saving the world because he lives there. He really is just trying to save the girl. He has not necessarily become less of a coward [by the end], and he hasn’t necessarily become a better person. »

Taylor Sheridan is going to go test-drive some horses. That is the exact phrase he's just used: The 47-year-old actor-turned-screenwriter-turned-director is in his car, heading to Spanish Fork, Utah, for the express purpose, he says, of taking a few thoroughbreds out for a spin like they were a couple of Ford Mustangs. "It's for a TV show I'm doing," he claims, referring to the forthcoming family drama Yellowstone he's prepping. "But yeah, I highly recommend before you buy any, maybe take 'em for a spin. You know that saying, 'You broke it, »
The war against the Mimics rages on.
Edge Of Tomorrow 2 (or Live Die Repeat and Repeat) is teetering on the brink of development, and writer-director Doug Liman, who is poised to reteam with The Mummy‘s Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins Returns), has offered up some new intel on the prequel-sequel while chatting to Cinema Blend.
Truth be told, Liman and Christopher McQuarrie’s under-appreciated gem didn’t exactly light up the box office in the way Warner Bros. would have hoped – $370 million isn’t an international haul to balk at, of course, but it’s not enough to launch a full-blown franchise with Cruise’s name on the masthead – so news that the Powers That Be planned to push on with Edge of Tomorrow 2 initially took many film fans by surprise.
And now that the pieces are starting to fall into place, Liman outlined the “better »

"They say a circus is a lot like a family, but every family needs that special something that holds it all together." Blue Dream Studios (not related to Blue Sky Studios) has released the first official trailer for an animated comedy called Animal Crackers, about a down-on-his-luck guy who tries to revive a circus. The catch - he finds a magical box of animal crackers that allows him to transform into any of the animals in his box. He thinks this might save the circus, until he discovers he has to go up against his long lost evil uncle - Horatio P. Huntington. The extensive voice cast in Animal Crackers includes John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Danny DeVito, Ian McKellen, Raven-Symoné, Sylvester Stallone, Patrick Warburton, Tara Strong, Lydia Rose Taylor, Wallace Shawn, Gilbert Gottfried, Harvey Fierstein, and Kevin Grevioux. This looks fun, even though it seems seriously derivative in many ways, »

Happy Birthday, Princess Mia Thermopolis of Genovia!
On Thursday, Anne Hathaway shared a clip from The Princess Diaries on her Instagram to celebrate the movie's 16th anniversary. In her post, she wrote, "Happy Birthday Princess (Thanks Garry) #sweetsixteen #mia4evah."
The 2001 movie -- which helped launch Hathaway's Hollywood career -- became an instant classic, spawning one sequel, The Princess Diaries 2: A Royal Engagement, and endless talk of a third.
Julie Andrews, who starred as Hathaway's grandmother, Queen Clarisse, in both films, added fuel to the idea earlier this year when she told The Today Show, "There's always been talk about it. It's a 'yes' if they ask me, only if it happens of course."
Diaries director and Hollywood legend Garry Marshall passed away in July of 2016, but had often discussed the possibility of a third film, according to his longtime friend (and Diaries franchise star) Hector Elizondo.
"[Anne] was talking to Garry about doing a Princess Diaries »
Taylor Sheridan just made his directorial debut with “Wind River” after making a name for himself as a screenwriter in recent years with the likes of “Hell or High Water” (for which he received an Oscar nomination) and “Sicario.” Now the latter is getting a sequel in “Soldado,” which Sheridan will likewise write (but which original director Denis Villeneuve will not return for). Speaking to Collider, the actor-turned-screenwriter-turned-director says this second chapter will be even darker than the first — in fact, “it makes the first one look like a comedy.”
“When I told them I would write it, they asked for the traditional studio call and the outline and all that, and I said, ‘No, no, no, guys. The first one was original. I’m just going to go away and I’m going to come back with it and there you go, »

Dear Board of Governors and members of the Academy,
Let’s face it!
Actors are the face of Oscar. Every year, I’m struck by how many more worthy performances there are than films. We often find more problems in movies we like — plot points not resolved, length issues — than we do with performances, which are more consistently flawless.
In other words, great performances are in more abundance than great films.
So why should the number of acting nominees be limited to five, rather than up to ten, as the maximum current Best Picture rules allow? I propose increasing the number of acting nominees in all four categories, to be selected by the Entire membership, with the number of acting nominations equaling the number of Best Picture nominees.
All of the many Academy members I canvassed, including members of the Acting branch, Oscar-winners and former Governors, agreed with this proposal. »

With a staggeringly impressive back catalogue of movies to his name, Doug Liman has returned to his roots somewhat with his latest endeavour The Wall – a lower-budget affair driven the characters that inhabit this brutal landscape.
We discusses the appeal of this narrative, and the pressure that derives from depicting modern warfare. We then got onto the subject of Live Die Repeat and Repeat – a sequel to the immensely popular Edge of Tomorrow. Liman explains what compelled him to return to this world, why the studio weren’t quite so keen to begin with – and exactly why he believes this film will be ever better than the original. On the subject of sequels, he also discusses why he never made a follow-up to Swingers, though admitted it was a thought that crossed his mind…
So what was it about this screenplay which appealed to you as a director and storyteller? »

When Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow kicks into high gear, it’s not because of the star wattage of Mr. Tom Cruise finally reaches full brightness. It’s because Cruise’s oft-murdered soldier must fight and learn from Sgt. Rita Rose Vratask, played with no-bull skepticism and physical oomph by Emily Blunt. She’s the better soldier by a mile but by the end of the movie, she will have thanked Cruise’s character for teacher her one thing or two and everyone claps or something.

This year’s event will take place on Oct. 27 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
