Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, 2015.
Directed by Christopher McQuarrie.
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 »

McQuarrie and Liman were both involved in the original film.
Cruise added that he was desperate to have Emily Blunt involved as well.
"I pitched it to McQuarrie and Doug," he told MTV News. "We were there one night, and I was like, 'I've got an idea for it'.
"It could be so much fun. Gotta get Emily. I was like, 'Emily, please'. She was like, 'Give me another year, please'."
Edge of Tomorrow starred Cruise as Major William Cage, a man fighting in a battle against aliens but who is »

As Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation makes its way into cinemas, Tom Cruise has attended the New York premiere for the movie, as part of his publicity duties for it. And chatting to MTV at said premiere, the question of last year's Edge Of Tomorrow came up. Specifically: is there a possibility of a sequel?
Turns out there is.
"I pitched it to [Christopher] McQuarrie and Doug [Liman]", he said, referring to the writer and director of the movie. "We were there one night and I was like, I've got an idea for it". Naturally enough, he's not spilling just what that idea was. He did reveal that he's spoken to his Edge Of Tomorrow co-star Emily Blunt about the project too, but that she said to him "give me another year, please".
Although it seemed to get lost in the shuffle when it was release last summer, those who saw the Tom Cruise-led action film Edge of Tomorrow would most likely agree that it was well worth the price of admission.
The film certainly set-up an interesting world and fascinating characters, and although following up with another film isn’t necessary, Cruise recently revealed to MTV that he has an idea for a potential sequel.
He said, “I pitched it to [Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation director and Edge of Tomorrow screenwriter Christopher] McQuarrie and [Edge of Tomorrow director] Doug [Liman]. We were there one night and I was like, I’ve got an idea for it.”
Cruise also mentioned how he has approached his co-star Emily Blunt about returning, and said, “It could be so much fun. Gotta get Emily. I was like Emily, please. She was like, ‘give me another year, please.'”
By no means was Edge of Tomorrow a flop, as it grossed close »

Tom Cruise can do no wrong, in my opinion. I was listening to a Grantland podcast episode recorded as part of the site's Tom Cruise Week coverage, and the Grantland team was talking about Cruise as Hollywood's "most effortful" action star. Now that I know effortful is an actual word in the English language, I think it perfectly captures what I like about Cruise. He tries. He tries hard. If a Cruise movie is going to fail -- and these days, if they don't carry the Mission: Impossible brand name, they often do -- it won't be for the star's lack of trying. For instance, I didn't care for Oblivion, but I liked what Cruise was going for and I liked that he was pushing to make something interesting. Cruise is well-known for his impressive stunt work, sitting atop and dangling from the world's tallest building in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, »

Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow wasn't exactly a massive box office blockbuster when it hit theaters last summer, but it still fared quite well. The sci-fi action-thriller took in just over $100 million domestically and $369 million worldwide from a whopping $178 million budget. While the profit margin wasn't quite as big as some were expecting, the film was met with critical acclaim, leading some to wonder if a sequel is even possible. While promoting this weekend's Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, Tom Cruise revealed to MTV that he actually pitched his own idea for Edge of Tomorrow 2 to screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie and director Doug Liman, and although he wouldn't divulge any specific plot details, he did add that Emily Blunt will have to be involved.
"I pitched it to [Rogue Nation director and Edge of Tomorrow screenwriter Christopher] McQuarrie and [Edge of Tomorrow director] Doug [Liman]. We were there one night and I was like, I've got an idea for it. It could be so much fun. »
One of the big surprises of last year, the Tom Cruise-led and Doug Liman-directed sci-fi flick "Edge of Tomorrow" proved to be one of the actor's best in years - a "Groundhog Day"-style take on the sci-fi war genre that had both dark humor and inventive ideas.
Liman and the film's co-writer Christopher McQuarrie have become Cruise's go to guys of late, McQuarrie penning and directing both "Jack Reacher" and this week's "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" whilst Cruise is currently filming Liman's new thriller "Mena".
In a new interview with MTV tying into 'Rogue Nation', Cruise admits he's spoken to both of them about an idea he has for a follow-up to 'Edge', and it would also mean he'd have to get his co-star Emily Blunt back:
"I pitched it to [screenwriter Christopher] McQuarrie and [director] Doug [Liman]. We were there one night and I was like, 'I've got an idea for it. »

Canadian director Denis Villeneuve isn’t exactly new to the Toronto International Film Festival. Two of his most critically acclaimed films, the dark thrillers Prisoners and Enemy, both premiered at the fest, putting him on the map as one of Canada’s finest filmmakers.
This September, Villeneuve will be back at Tiff with his latest film, Sicario. Following an FBI agent who gets caught up in a dangerous drug war around the U.S./Mexico border, Sicario looks at the more morally complicated aspects of law enforcement.
Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro, and Josh Brolin star, along with Jon Bernthal and Victor Garber. Based on the new trailer, Sicario is looking like one of the most heart-poundingly intense movies of the festival, if not the entire year. Every one of Villeneuve’s movies had us on the edge of our seats, so we don’t expect Sicario will be an exception. »

Denis Villeneuve has delivered three white-knuckle classics in a row with the dramatic Incendies, hauntingly atmospheric Prisoners and enigmatic Enemy, and he’s preparing to unveil his biggest movie yet with drug cartel thriller Sicario, starring Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro. With the pic newly set to screen at the Toronto International Film Festival this September, the film has a fast and thrilling new trailer.
There’s not much by way of fresh footage, but the preview further cements Sicario as a dark and disturbing thriller exploring the morally murky aspects of law enforcement in a lawless land. As shot by Roger Deakins, it also looks atypically terrific for a gritty action-drama.
Here’s the official synopsis:
In Mexico, Sicario means hitman.
