'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' star Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' trailer: Movie stunt combo "Desperate times. Desperate measures," says Tom Cruise aka Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation trailer aka the Mission: Impossible 5 and/or MI5 trailer. Whatever you call it, that particular line could be read in a number of ways: Tom Cruise's superstardom is in the doldrums – at least that's what we hear from those who see reality only through U.S.-focused lenses – and he needs all the box-office help he can get. Hence, MI5. Hollywood is in dire need of a mammoth domestic blockbuster following a year of mediocre-performing tentpoles at the U.S. box office. Hence, MI5. The world's socioeconomic fabric is about to unravel. Hence, MI5 – so humankind can go with a bang. Not only with a bang, but with mirth as well. »

Specific story details are being kept out of the public forum at this time, but we know that the show will revolve around “a college campus which is rocked by a series of murders and is set in a sorority house.”

The actor told Variety that he was in "the worst situation ever" after he decided to take a shot of whiskey to relax his vocal cords for the audition.
Dornan said: "I had to sing 'Waiting for a Girl Like You'. It's nearly impossible to sing, and I've got quite a deep voice when I sing. My audition was at 10 in the morning on the Warner Bros lot.
"I convinced myself it would be a good idea to have a bit of whiskey to relax my vocal cords and maybe as a bit of a confidence booster. Suddenly, I took a swig of Jameson and I instantly f**king puked."
He continued: "So I'm standing with all these executives driving around in golf carts, as I'm vomiting on the lot. It was a bad look. »

Vertical Entertainment has announced the acquisition of the North American rights to "Eden," a thriller directed by Shyam Madiraju. The "Lord Of The Flies"-esque story follows the crew of an American soccer team after their plane crashes off the coast of a deserted island. The group separates into two factions, increasingly at odds as resources and food supplies begin to run out. Producer Juan Sola said about the deal: "We are excited to once again partner with Vertical Entertainment on the release of our survival thriller, 'Eden'. The collaboration on our first film 'Anna' was a great experience." The film stars Ethan Peck (grandson of Hollywood legend Gregory Peck), Jessica Lowndes ("90210"), Diego Boneta ("Rock of Ages"), James Remar, Sung Kang, and Nate Parker ("Beyond The Lights"). Vertical plans to release "Eden" in late 2015. Read More: Clarius Entertainment Acquires 'Cell', Starring Nicolas Cage and »

The film will be released in theaters in the third quarter. Voltage will be handling international sales of the film during the Berlin Film Festival.
The script, written by Mark Mavrothalasitis and Nate Parker, centers on a plane crash off the coast of a deserted Pacific island, leaving the surviving members of an American soccer team with limited resources, dwindling food supply and no rescue coming any time soon. Team spirit evaporates as two factions form – a violent one lead by an unbalanced ruler (played by Peck) and a compassionate one led by a selfless player (played by Parker).

The four-hour limited series event from Downey and Mark Burnett, based on Alice Hoffman’s book of the same name, stars “NCIS’s” Cote de Pablo, Rachel Brosnahan, Kathryn Prescott, Diego Boneta and Sam Neill.
Downey said after the huge success of her “Bible” miniseries on History (which drew more than 100 million views), she knew viewers would be “hungry” for “Dovekeepers,” which she decided to produce because she is such a big fan of the novel.
“At its heart, ‘Dovekeepers’ is a love story…there is tragedy, of course, but at its heartbeat, there is beauty and hope,” Downey said on the TCA panel, adding that the dark story of Masada, which was filmed in Malta, is “profoundly moving.”
The net is hoping that de Pablo’s “noisy” fanbase, »
