And for comparison, here’s the original shot…
What do you make of the new cast? Let us know in the comments below…

There’s a moment in Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation — Tom Cruise career-saver, franchise Mvp and the summer's best non-Imperator Furiosa action blockbuster — where the CIA director refers to the film's relentless hero as "the living manifestation of destiny." As a government official talking about an unpredictable agent, the line is patently (if knowingly) ridiculous. As Alec Baldwin talking about Tom Cruise, the dialogue sounds right on the money. That phrase could be dropped into the first sentence of his biography and nobody would think twice.

How Love the Coopers might remind you »
- Melissa Thompson
For the most wonderful time of the year, the Christmas period is often ripe for the picking when it comes to screwball comedies, whether it’s age-old classics in the vein of Home Alone or the much more forgettable Deck the Halls. Though one ensemble piece that still stands the test of time is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, and its legacy lives on in the first trailer for Love The Coopers.
In the works at CBS Films and Lionsgate, the film brings together a star-studded cast for what seems to be a fairly run of the mill Christmas comedy. From misbehaving children to festive plans going up in smokes, Love The Coopers ticks all the generic boxes, but one thing separating it from the pack – and perhaps acting as its saving grace – is the ensemble cast.

London — The BBC has commissioned musical drama miniseries “Stop! In the Name of Love,” which incorporates many Motown songs.
The four-part miniseries is written by Tony Jordan (“Hustle,” “Life on Mars”), based on a format created by Stop! (London) Ltd. It is a co-production between Jordan’s Red Planet Pictures and Stop! (London) Ltd. following a deal with Emi Music Publishing.
The drama follows six smart thirtysomething women in contemporary England. It focuses on the women’s complicated lives as they deal with love, friendship, success and failure. The music of Berry Gordy Jr.’s record label will be woven into each drama, with characters singing songs at key moments within the spoken narrative. Each song (five per episode) will express the situation and emotions of the characters and be an integral part of the drama.

Director: Alan Rickman
Running Time: 117 minutes
Although many will recognise Alan Rickman from this roles in the Harry Potter series, Die Hard and Love Actually (amongst many, many other titles), some will be surprised to learn that he’s also an established director, with A Little Chaos his second foray behind the camera.
Kate Winslet stars as Sabine de Barra, a passionate gardener appointed by landscaper André Le Nôtre (Schoenaerts) to design and build a lavish outdoor ballroom for King Louis Xiv’s (Rickman) Versailles palace. Known for her love of the nontraditional and of a little chaos, de Barra becomes popular amongst France’s royal circle, despite not a drop of high ranking blood in her family tree. However, not everyone is so welcoming; after Le Nôtre’s unsatisfied and unfaithful wife, Madame Françoise (McCrory), catches her husband’s attention waning, »

The film series, of course, is adapted from the bestselling book trilogy of the same name, written by James Dashner. Following the release of The Scorch Trials, The Death Cure, which is the final installment in the franchise, will hit theaters in 2017.
Last year’s The Maze Runner proved to be a huge hit at the box office. Although it didn’t post Hunger Games-size numbers, it more than made back it’s relatively small budget of $34 million, grossing over $340 million worldwide.
In this next chapter of the epic “Maze Runner” saga, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers face their greatest challenge yet: searching for clues about the mysterious and powerful organization known as Wckd. Their journey takes them to the Scorch, »

The Love Actually kid is actually kind of hot! Thirteen years after Thomas Brodie-Sangster starred opposite Liam Neeson in the star-studded British rom-com classic Love Actually, the now 25-year-old hasn’t aged a bit. Spotted promoting his Maze Runner 2 at San Diego's Comic-Con, the hunky former child star is a grown-up version of that little boy who melted our hearts running after Joanna (Olivia Olson) in that famous airport scene. Though he's since added roles on Game of Thrones (as Jojen Reed), Phineas and Ferb (voice of [...] »

London — A host of British showbiz stars — including J.K. Rowling, Judi Dench, Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz — have come to the defense of publicly-owned broadcaster the BBC as it struggles to defend itself from attacks from the right-wing Conservative Party government.
In an open letter to Prime Minister David Cameron, the two dozen or so celebrities from the world of film and television wrote: “In our view, a diminished BBC would simply mean a diminished Britain.”
They added: “The BBC is a very precious organization. Like all organizations, it has its faults but it is overwhelmingly a creative force for good.”
In the letter, they express their “concern that nothing should be done to diminish the BBC or turn it into a narrowly focused market-failure broadcaster.”

Love don’t live here any more. “Here” being the immaculately kept townhouses of west London, home to sweary upper-middle-class romantics prone to airport dashes and damp declarations of love. The British romcom, typified by Richard Curtis and his Working Title collaborations, was our most reliably profitable cinematic export for a considerable – some might say interminable – time. As well as packing UK cinemas, the films were big hits abroad (the global take for the 2003 film Love Actually was $247m (£158m), Bridget Jones’ Diary (2001), $282m, Notting Hill (1999), $364m) and led to Hugh Grant becoming every American’s idea of what to expect from a British man. Inevitably, disappointment followed.

The actor, currently cameoing in Mr Holmes, may be best known for sitcoms, but she’s also featured in an eclectic selection of big-screen work
And yet De la Tour has also made movies: an eclectic selection featuring collaborations with Martin Scorsese, the Wombles and Denzel Washington. Sometimes she’s seen only fleetingly – the briefest of fee-fi-fo-fums in last year’s Into the Woods, and just one appearance opposite Vicious housemate Ian McKellen in this week’s Mr Holmes. Sometimes we never even see the scenes: her role as a headmistress having an affair with Anne Reid in Love Actually was left on the cutting-room floor.

The John Green adaptation craze that began with last summer’s The Fault in Our Stars and continues next month with Paper Towns has been prolonged, now that Universal has set its take on his short story collection Let It Snow for December 9, 2016.
Green contributed a story to the three-story collection, which also included work by 13 Little Blue Envelopes author Maureen Johnson and ttyl writer Lauren Myracle. Pitch Perfect scribe Kay Cannon is penning the script for the adaptation, which will weave together three unexpected romances that unfold on one Christmas Eve, Love Actually style.
Currently, Let It Snow has the December weekend to itself, but its legs at the box office may be threatened by Star Wars: Rogue One opening the next week. Of course, the holiday crowd coupled with Green’s ardent fanbase should ensure Let It Snow a pretty high opening.

- Dan Bullock
Director: Stephen Daldry
Special Features: None
Political corruption and intrigue form the backdrop to Trash, an involving action thriller set apart by two things. First, the unusual location – the slums of Rio De Janeiro, dominated by their mountains of litter. Second, the perspective – it’s seen mainly through the eyes of three kids who stumble upon a hotbed of deception that changes their lives forever.
Raphael (Teves), Gardo (Luis) and the delightfully-named Rat (Weinstein) earn their meagre living sifting through what society dumps quite literally on their doorstep. But when Raphael discovers an abandoned wallet pitched into a passing garbage truck by man-on-the-run José Angelo, he finds it contains a strange document. Unbeknownst to the boy, Angelo has been apprehended and murdered by the police at the behest of a prominent politician, »
