‘Mission: Impossible 6′: Paramount Backs Tom Cruise for Another Sequel

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

Paramount Pictures vice chairman Rob Moore is ready for more Ethan Hunt, strongly endorsing Tom Cruise’s recent announcement that “Mission: Impossible 6″ is in the works.

“We’re very happy to be developing this movie with Tom,” Moore told Variety. “There’s no question that Ethan Hunt deserves another film.”

The veteran executive was basking in the glow of a $121 million global opening for “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” — $56 million in the U.S. and another $65 million from 40% of international markets. “The international brand is as strong as ever,” he added.

It was the first public comment by Paramount execs — who tend to take a measured approach in discussing future films. Even as “Rogue Nation” opened on Friday, the studio was insisting that its tracking showed a $40 million U.S. opening, even though the final figure turned out to be 40% higher.

Jj Abrams broke his back on Star Wars set helping lift hydraulic door off Harrison Ford

22 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jj Abrams has revealed he broke his back while filming the epic sci-fi Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

During an appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, the director explained that the incident happened when he helped out after the accident in which lead actor Harrison Ford broke his ankle.

"He's down there and he's toughing it out. He's a super human being. He's literally lying there making jokes," said Abrams, who was trying to help free Ford from underneath a hydraulic door at the time.

"This door had gone down, and I'm trying to help lift it up – because that's the kind of guy I am. I'm trying to lift up this door and I feel this pop in my back. I'm like, 'Uh, that's weird'."

Abrams found out that the pop meant he'd broken a bone in his back when he went to see a doctor a couple of days later. »

31 July 2015 4:06 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

J.J. Abrams might be the only director in Hollywood who needs his own stunt double.

The "Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation" producer stopped by "The Daily Show" on Thursday and revealed an injury he suffered while shooting "Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens."

Abrams was trying to help star Harrison Ford after a prop on set malfunctioned and pinned the actor's ankle "90 degrees." Unfortunately, the "Lost" creator found himself more hurt than his leading man.

J.J. Abrams Reveals He Broke His Back Trying to Help When the Millennium Falcon Crushed Harrison Ford

31 July 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Harrison Ford is a real life superhero. When a prop malfunctioned on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, slamming one of the real metal doors of the Millennium Falcon crushing down on him, it broke Ford's ankle. But he went back to filming just a few months later. A few months after that, he crash landed an airplane onto a golf course, breaking his ankle yet again as well as his pelvis. A few months after that, he was hitting the stage at Comic-Con like nothing ever happened. Jj Abrams? Not quite as much of a superhero, as he tells it himself. The director revealed last night on The Daily Show that when the Millennium Falcon incident happened, he rushed over to try and lift the door off of Ford's leg. Not only was he unable to do it, but the attempt broke his...

Seth Rollins Gives Jon Stewart Replica WWE Title

31 July 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


WWE Champion Seth Rollins made a surprise appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart for a comedy bit to continue their rivalry that started earlier this year. Stewart is leaving The Daily Show next Thursday, so it was a big deal to put Rollins on his fifth last show.

During the appearance, Rollins walked onto the set with the WWE Title on his shoulder yelling “Hey Stewart I’m back!” Stewart’s familiar with WWE because his son is a big fan and it’s why he got involved with WWE in the past with Rollins appearing on The Daily Show to taunt and then Stewart was on Raw on March 2.

Rollins fired off some lines while Stewart jokingly shilled some Rollins merchandise, which led to Rollins acting shocked to find out that there were Seth Rollins sandals.

Rollins said that Stewart will do anything to appease the »

Jj Abrams Broke His Back for Star Wars

31 July 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Remember when Harrison Ford broke his leg on the set of Star Wars The Force Awakens, after a door on the Millennium Falcon fell on his leg? Well, it now turns out that Ford wasn't the only casualty. Director and co-writer Jj Abrams managed to break his back in the process too. Speaking on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Abrams recounted the tale of what went down with Ford and when he saw what happened, he ran to assist that scruffy looking nerf herder, and managed to break his back in the process. Subsequently the director had to wear a back brace on set and told nobody as to not raise concern. Crazy stuff altogether! But thanks Jj, we always knew you'd break your back for us :) »

Harrison Ford Wasn't The Only Person Injured On The Set Of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

31 July 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Despite a rather accident-prone year, the 73 year-old Harrison Ford is chugging along nicely, stoking plenty of fan excitement with his surreal reprisal of Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Unfortunately for director J.J. Abrams, who tried to help Ford after his on-set leg injury last year, he got a firsthand lesson about the ironic dangers of grace-deprived good intentions when he suffered an injury of his own. Appearing last night on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Abrams was detracted from his intended capacity as a producer on Mission: Impossible . Rogue Nation to promote said movie, when the Star Wars fanboy in Stewart shifted topic. While remaining mum on any substantive details, the conversation lead Abrams into a rather interesting anecdote about Ford.s real-life innate baddassery.

Jon Stewart’s Final The Daily Show Guests Are All Comedians

31 July 2015 7:06 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As Jon Stewart prepares to sign off The Daily Show for good next week, he revealed the names of the guests who'll join him on his final episodes: Amy Schumer, Louis C.K., and Denis Leary are all set to send Jon off before his August 6 finale. Recently, Stewart called both Leary and Louis two of his favorite guests because "I get to not work [and] fuck around with them for five minutes," since they're his friends. (Stewart recently performed stand-up for the first time in years following a set from Louis.) Leary himself tweeted earlier this month that he'd be a guest on The Daily Show on August 4 for "the final 'Go Fuck Yourself' with a 40 person choir." Details of Stewart's final show are, of course, a mystery — but we do know it'll air for an hour after a marathon of memorable of Tds episodes. »
