Anyone growing into pop culture consciousness during the mid-2000s will be familiar with a certain type of Tom Cruise, one labeled with some criticism in a recent Buzzfeed article as “Tom Cruise 2.0.” To them, Tom Cruise may have first become familiar as Ethan Hunt in the first Mission: Impossible movie, as an action star who, in spite of fearful insurance agents and publicists, prefers to do his own stunts—especially if they include declaring maniacal love for Katie Holmes atop Oprah Winfrey’s couch. He was probably their first introduction to the alien world of Scientology, or perhaps already known as the face of another hero thrust into the supernatural, having once served as the model for the titular character in Disney’s Aladdin.
This Tom Cruise, in spite of several critical successes in the past 10 years, has yet to shake completely the straws of tabloid fodder that prick up every time someone dares, »

Every Friday for the last few weeks we’ve been looking at a different cinematic classic featuring a certain Tom Cruise. Past editions have focussed on Top Gun, Jerry Maguire, and Minority Report, now our attention turns to his one franchise, the Mission Impossible series.
Tom Cruise had his first taste of fame in the 1980’s and, unlike many of his peers, has never really left the spotlight. His body of work features an impressive 38 films giving him the opportunity to work with many acclaimed directors such as Steven Spielberg, Cameron Crowe, Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Oliver Stone, and Stanley Kubrick. He’s also done pretty much every genre under the sun, giving him a wide ranging show-reel. He’s also been the first actor to get his own Sky movies channel devoted purely to films he stars in (available now for a limited time). This week sees his latest »

Back in the year 2000, director Steven Spielberg had been slated to direct Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, but he passed on the project, opting to take his career in a different direction by taking on both A.I. Artificial Intelligence (check out a recent visual study of the film) and Minority Report (which is […]

As the critical acclaim and commercial audience for television has increased over the years, the demand for festivals dedicated to television, outside of over-arching festivals such as the San Diego Comic-Con, has proportionally increased. One of the most prominent television festivals that has arisen as a result has been Paleyfest. Conducted by the Paley Center for Media, the newest incarnation of the event is poised to be held once again in Los Angeles, running in September 2015 from the 9th to the 17th, and now the first wave of the lineup for the event has been announced.
Things will get kicked off on the 9th with two shows from NBC. The two panels from the channel will be for Truth Be Told and Undateable, with the Truth Be Told panel including castmembers Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tone Bell, and Vanessa Lachey, among others. The Undateable panel shall include »

Regular readers of the site will know that earlier this year we ran a series looking at the classic films of Keanu Reeves. This was to co-inside with the release of the fantastic John Wick; now we turn our attention to another big name from the nineties, Tom Cruise. Each week from now until the release of the highly anticipated fifth Mission Impossible film, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, we’ll be taking an in-depth look at the films that we feel are his classics. This week’s pick is Minority Report.
Minority Report takes place in 2054 where all crime is predicted and controlled by the PreCrime task force. Trouble brews when one of their best agents, Anderton, finds his name on this list and gets hunted down before he can commit the pre-destined murder.

Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, the lead characters of TV’s “The X-Files,” have been known to unearth any number of rare things, like extraterrestrials, an odd religious sect and a creature known as a Flukeman. In 2016, they may be able to find something else equally unique in today’s TV landscape – ratings success.
A Variety survey of commercial-ratings projections for the 2015-2016 TV season finds ad buyers believe a revival of “The X-Files” slated to debut on Fox in January will generate the most commercial viewership among freshman scripted programs. The survey, constructed from estimates from as many as three large media-buying agencies, examines the primetime grid for the most viewers of commercials between the ages of 18 and 49, the demographic coveted most by advertisers.
Each 18-to-49 ratings point in the 2014-15 TV season was the equivalent of 1.269 million adults.
No other freshman program is expected to garner as much »

One of the most intriguing upcoming new shows has to be Fox's small screen adaptation of Minority Report, so we were very interested to see what the cast and crew had to say about it at Comic-Con in San Diego earlier this month.
After screening 20 flashy minutes of the pilot - which sees precog Dash helping a detective solve crimes before they happen - stars Stark Sands, Meagan Good, Wilmer Valderrama and Laura Regan joined executive producers Kevin Falls, Darryl Frank and Max Borenstein to give us some hints about what's coming up, so read on for 8 things to expect from the show:
1. The series is all about humanising precogs.
"We've seen shows that have copied Minority Report since the movie which is all about stopping crime, stopping murders before they happen, and in the movie we follow the police department which has an infrastructure in place to do that, »
Wilmer Valderrama is having a good year as he returns to play the villain in Robert Rodriguez's second season of "From Dusk Til Dawn" on El Rey, and he's on the good side in another television adaptation for Steven Spielberg's "Minority Report" on Fox in the fall. CineMovie talked to him at a recent movie premiere where he dished about what role is more fun to play. He jokes he's having more fun than a blonde.

20th Century Fox has shut down the Alien fan film that was due to star Carrie Henn.
The film would have focused on life 14 years after the events of Aliens, with an alternate timeline.
Adam Sonnet, writer and director of the proposed film, said: "When we decided to make this Alien tribute film we anticipated from the beginning that this could happen. We were hoping that since Fox allowed other fan films in the Alien/Predator universes to be made that they would allow us to do so likewise.
"Although we wanted to make a tribute film spin off in the Alien universe reuniting original cast members to play new roles, we understand that this is Fox's intellectual property »
After much debate, we came up with 10 of the biggest and most exciting TV shows that were represented at Comic-Con 2015 last week.
We can now reveal that the oldies are always the goodies, as Doctor Who was your number one pick from the convention with 21% of the vote. Peter Capaldi's Elvis impression clearly did enough to keep you excited.
Honourable mentions from the comments section go to Agent Carter, Agents of Shield, »
"It's an awesome responsibility," he said. "But in the way the comics helped define who characters are and introduce them to a large audience, we're now the next super level of that.
"So if people learn what an Inhuman is through the show, just in the United States we have 10m viewers. So it's 10m more people who can then socialise, 'I know what an Inhuman is', so when the movie comes out, whether or not the movie has a »
"Never say never," Tarantino said. "We'll see, when it comes to Kill Bill 3. Uma [Thurman] would really like to do it, we talk about it every once in a while or so..."
The director then went on to suggest that the third film in the series could focus on the daughter of Vernita (played by by Vivica A Fox).
"We've got to wait for Vernita's daughter to get old enough to go and kill her," he quipped.
Tarantino also revealed he could make a move to the world of television if digital filmmaking continues to dominate the movie industry. »
Marvel's first family the Fantastic Four are heading back to the big screen next month - and with the days counting down, one final, action-packed trailer has arrived to whet fans' appetites.
The teaser gives us a good look at the formation of the new-look superhero team and their nemesis Doctor Doom.
The quartet are comprised of Miles Teller's Reed Richards, Kate Mara's Sue Storm, Michael B Jordan's Johnny Storm and Jamie Bell's Ben Grimm, with teleportation to another realm gifting them extraordinary abilities.
"You can't just keep telling a story the same way over and over again," he said. "And I think it only helps the world to be more honest with young kids, to show them the world that they go walk outside and see. »

Winslet appears in the 1950s-set film as Australian fashion designer Tilly Dunnage who goes back to her rural hometown to care for her sick mother, but rumours of her involvement in the death of a young boy threaten to ruin her return.
Speaking last December when a first look of Winslet in character was revealed, the film's director Jocelyn Moorhouse said: "A great crew, brilliant supporting cast and beautiful locations, costume and design helped make the shoot a delight.
"This very first look of Kate Winslet as Tilly Dunnage... says everything about the character, a beautiful talented misfit, a dressmaker, returning home to right the wrongs of the past."
The Dressmaker has so far only been scheduled for »
13 years on from the hit movie and Minority Report is coming to television as an ongoing series.
Sands plays Dash, the same psychic - or 'precog' - who featured in the 2002 film, while Good is Lara Vega, a detective who uses her new partner's abilities to prevent violent crimes.
Daniel London will reprise his role as Wally the Caretaker from the original movie, with the TV series set 15 years on.
Watch a trailer for the series below:
The new Fox series Minority Report had its panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday. The show takes place 10 years after the end of Pre-crime in D.C. The show is a direct sequel to the 2002 film by Steven Spielberg, and follows Dash (Stark Sands), a young precog, and younger brother to Agatha (Laura Regan), played by Samantha Morton in the film. The precogs have been sent into a sort of witness protection program and have been sheltered from the world. Dash is trying to lead a normal life while trying to deal with his visions of the future. He meets a detective named Lara Vega (Meagan Good), who was in Pre-crime training, and found it canceled as soon as she was ready to go. They form an alliance to help stop crime. At the panel, Fox showed the first 20 minutes of the pilot, which gave us a look at future tech, »
