Oscar nominee Tom Cruise (the “Mission: Impossible” films, “Collateral,” “Jerry Maguire”) and Emily Blunt (“The Devil Wears Prada,” “The Adjustment Bureau”) star in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ sci-fi thriller Edge Of Tomorrow, under the direction of Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity,” “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”).
The epic action of Edge Of Tomorrow unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Check out the trailer below.
Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again.
But with each battle, »

Opening almost one year ago to the day, Christopher McQuarrie’s Jack Reacher was a solid blockbuster hit for Paramount, not reaching the highs of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol from the previous year, but nevertheless making the studio a tidy profit.
Before the film hit screens, there was talk of it launching a new franchise for the studio under leading man Tom Cruise’s watch, but its initial North American box office performance made that look a little less likely. But within a few weeks, its international take cleared the $200m. mark, and talk of a sequel was naturally back on the table.
Now Deadline reports that Cruise and Paramount are moving ahead with a sequel, trying to fast-track it, developing Lee Child’s most recent Jack Reacher novel, Never Go Back, published earlier this year.
Courtesy of Amazon, here’s the synopsis for the original novel.

Paramount Pictures is moving forward with a sequel to Tom Cruise's "Jack Reacher," which hit theaters in 2012 and went on to gross $218 million worldwide on a budget o $60 million. The plan is to fast-track a second installment that will be based on Lee Child's "Never Go Back" novel, which was published earlier this fall. In it, Reacher heads back to his old military base in Virginia to take a woman to dinner who is now the commanding officer. By the time he gets there, she has been arrested, and Reacher finds himself being charged with pummeling one guy and fathering a child with a woman. He can't remember either transgression but gets to the bottom of it with cunning and sometimes brute force. Paramount is currently in search of writers. Deadline claims that the studio will try to release the film before Cruise's fifth "Mission: Impossible" movie. »
While his casting caused much controversy and alienated many faithful fans, Tom Cruise remained passionate in bringing his vision of Lee Child’s literary action hero Jack Reacher. Christopher McQuarrie’s moderately-budgeted thriller was a brilliant B-movie-inspired hit that perhaps didn’t do a well as Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions had hoped. The film, or more specifically Cruise’s international pull in the Far East, helped it to a respectable £215 million worldwide. I must add, I blooming loved it!
Cruise was hoping to launch another franchise and while many suggested the gross may not see that happen, we can confirm Cruise is currently fast-tracking a return for the deadly-skilled drifter. The original film was made for around $50 million and I’m sure the superstar actor, who is about to reunite with Oscar-winning writer/director McQuarrie on a fifth Mission: Impossible, would take a pay cut to assure the character’s return. »

Though WhatCulture.com occasionally posts news stories for some of the bigger announcements, we often miss reporting on stories that fall under the radar or aren’t substantial enough (yet) to write whole articles about. So, we’re introducing a new weekly article devoted to the biggest movie and television news of the week, all in one handy article.
This week turned out to be full of exciting stories involving casting announcements (Wonder Woman and Warcraft among them), release dates for Bourne 5 and a Dredd sequel, and new shows in development at NBC and FX. We also heard from geek favorite director Jj Abrams about the secrecy surrounding Star Trek Into Darkness, had a surprising announcement from Bryan Singer, and were shocked and saddened by the death of Paul Walker.
So, without further ado, let’s jump right into the biggest movie and TV news stories of the week…

Jerry Bruckheimer’s move from Disney to Paramount is now official. The prolific producer and Disney decided to part ways after the box office bust of this summer’s The Lone Ranger, on which Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski argued successfully for a budget north of $200 million. Paramount officially announced today that Bruckheimer has finalized a three-year first-look deal with the studio set to begin next April, returning him to the home where he got his start as the producer of films like Top Gun, Beverly Hills Cop, and Days of Thunder. Per Deadline, Bruckheimer’s first film back at Paramount will be the long-developing Beverly Hills Cop 4, which Brett Ratner will direct after he finishes up Hercules. Eddie Murphy is reprising his role and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol scribes Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec are penning the screenplay. Additionally, the Top Gun sequel is another priority for the studio, »

Paula Patton is turning 38 today, and we can’t figure out what to get her. She’s got a sizzling career (2 Guns and Baggage Claim this year, About Last Night on deck for next year) just as husband Robin Thicke has gone from R&B fave to king of the summer pop song, and their 3-year-old boy couldn’t be cuter. We’ve got nothing to top that, so we decided to give back what the Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol star has given us: A collection of contagiously adorable photos of herself and Robin on red carpets, at festivals and about town.
A couple of years ago, Essence asked Thicke what he’s telling his wife (and high school sweetheart) whenever we see him whispering in her ear (which is a lot for the cozy twosome). “I can’t wait to get you home and love you »

Dubai set up its own film commission in May 2012, but it had already been luring foreign shoots, including “Syriana,” “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” and “The Bourne Legacy,” which helped spread the word about what the Persian Gulf state can deliver.
The Dubai Film Commission has now become a one-stop permit shop with a system of soft incentives tailored to each shoot rather than the fixed 30% production rebate launched in September by Abu Dhabi.
Here’s how Dubai’s perks worked for big Bollywood laffer “Happy New Year,” which recently wrapped there, marking the first Hindi feature shot almost entirely in the Emirates. Pic was produced by Red Chillies Entertainment.
“We customized their hotel requirement, their airline requirement, their logistics in Dubai, the equipment that they wanted, and took care of their visas — we saved them a lot of hassle and cash,” says commission topper Jamal Al Sharif.

Amazon's week long deals for 2013 Black Friday and Cyber Monday continue today, Wednesday, November 27, with a new schedule of DVDs and Blu-rays going on sale today and they are starting early. The deals throughout the day begin just after midnight today and there are a few titles worthy of your attention. If I had to select one title from the batch of deals going live today it would certainly be the Planet of the Apes Blu-ray collection, beyond that the Schindler's List Blu-ray is worth considering and, if you're looking for a nice little quadruple feature you can't really go wrong with picking up the Atonement, Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre and Elizabeth bundle, the price isn't yet available, but I have to assume it won't break the bank. Finally, that Best of Warner Bros. Romance Collection at 12:20 Pm might be worth a look as it includes some greats such »

Last night Paramount gave journos in New York a 17-minute sneak peek at their upcoming action tentpole, “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.” And there in the flesh, tall, rugged and handsome to introduce the footage, was Chris Pine himself, acting and looking like a regular old dude. To hear it from Pine, this Jack Ryan isn’t your average CIA agent or assassin ala Jason Bourne, Evelyn Salt or Bryan Mills from “Taken,” he’s the opposite; a CIA analyst who’s out of his element. Unlike these other killing machines, he’s “scared,” not surefooted, and is nowhere near as slick or polished. But if Jack Ryan is in over his head in Moscow for much of ‘Shadow Recruit,’ pardon us for saying, but it seems he’s only superficially ill-equipped to fight off hitmen, killers and spy agents. “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” has been in development for ages, essentially »
