“Fallout” centers around Hunt’s battle against nuclear terrorists. The cast mixes franchise favorites like Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames with “Rogue Nation” breakout Rebecca Ferguson. Michelle Monaghan is also returning to the franchise in a prominent role for the first time since “Mission: Impossible III.” She had a small appearance in “Ghost Protocol.”
“Mission: Impossible – Fallout” is written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who
Mission: Impossible 6 is now called Mission: Impossible - Fallout. And with Tom Cruise having just completed filming on the sequel, he and director Christopher McQuarrie are officially putting the finishing touches on the first trailer, which should be placed in your grubby little hands soon. The next chapter in the life of Ethan Hunt sounds like another true box office winner.
After Mission: Impossible III, the franchise decided to ditch the roman numerals and go with episodic titles beginning with Ghost Protocol and followed by Rogue Nation. Now, we get Fallout.
Tom Cruise was shooting M:i 6 in central London over the weekend, where he engaged in one of the franchise's signature hair-raising stunts. This time, the Hollywood icon was seen running across the roof of the famous Blackfriars rail bridge. Despite icy January temperatures, the 55 year-old actor had no problem sprinting high above the Thames. All the while, a low-flying helicopter appeared to be in pursuit. Though it was in place to actual capture the stunt as it took place.
Traffic in central London was forced to a standstill, which didn't make some locals very happy. No one
As I watched this painfully annoying trailer, I couldn't help but keep wondering why in the hell this movie was made. I know that this is only getting a home entertainment release, but Universal Pictures still spent money on making this thing and it seems like a waste.
The trailer is packed full of zany weirdness that includes a spaztastic Woody pooping on people and just going completely nuts! They tried to keep the character true to the cartoon version of the character, but here it just seems like he's
In late 2006, with much fanfare, Tom Cruise was announced as headlining a revived United Artists. But what went wrong?
Lurking in the corners of Netflix UK is a not-very-widely-seen Tom Cruise movie, that a decade ago was all set to herald a new filmmaking dawn. Directed by Robert Redford, and with a cast that includes Redford, Cruise, Meryl Streep and a then-relatively-unknown Andrew Garfield, Lions For Lambs looked on paper to be a heavyweight political drama. Its focus is on three stories: an ambitious politician giving an interview to tough reporter, an army platoon being ordered to go on a top secret mission by said politician, and a professor trying to talk a promising student into turning his life around.
It looked like Oscar-bait. It turned out to be a footnote to the failure to resurrect United Artists.
United Artists was originally founded in 1919 by Charlie Chaplin,
Live Cinema and Its Techniques by Francis Ford Coppola (Liveright)
The legendary Francis Ford Coppola has spoken of “live cinema” with regularity over the years, specifically with respect to 1981’s One From the Heart. That film, a box office flop now held in some regard, is an essential part of Live Cinema and Its Techniques, a fascinating new book authored by Coppola himself. The lessons from that experience, Coppola says,
Selling a movie is not an easy task, and over the years it has not gotten any easier. Promotional campaigns have to be very creative and persistent in order to capture people’s attention amid the sea of advertising we are flooded with on a daily basis. Common tactics include giveaways, publicity stunts, viral marketing techniques, sponsorships, and product tie-ins. Many films try to push the boundaries of traditional promotional campaigns in an effort to get an edge on the competition. Below is a brief look at ten campaigns (in no particular order) which definitely pushed the envelope, but doing so did more harm than good for the films they were trying to promote.
Five Things You Didn’t Know About Maggie Q
When Mission: Impossible production resumed yesterday, Tom Cruise, who returns as Ethan Hunt for this sixth installment of the action-packed franchise, was certainly not taking it easy. A new report with photos and brief video show that the actor spent his
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that newly-minted Paramount chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos was not pleased that J.J. Abrams was "poached" yet again by Disney to direct this highly-anticipated Star Wars sequel, but he ultimately accommodated the deal,
And yet, The Force Awakens helmer J.J. Abrams found himself in that exact position earlier this month. With Colin Trevorrow off Star Wars: Episode IX entirely, it didn’t take long before Lucasfilm came calling. The vocation? An opportunity to journey back to that galaxy far, far away and essentially close the circle in this current Star Wars trilogy. Abrams accepted, and the rest is history.
But as The Hollywood Reporter reveals, Paramount and CEO Jim Gianopulos were none too pleased with the decision. Since his work on Mission: Impossible 3, J.J. Abrams had struck a deal with Paramount that resulted in such lucrative blockbusters as Super 8 and a pair of rebooted Star Trek movies. Said to worth $10 million a year when accounting for overheads and development,
Charlie's Angels director McG and Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim are set to produce a True Lies reboot for television...
Arguably, James Cameron’s True Lies has not aged as gracefully over the years as some of his other action blockbusters. It's certainly not a perfect film, but it's still pretty damn hilarious, and a pretty clever riff on the spy genre. Mixing matrimony and spymania has often been something filmmakers have toyed with, from Mr. & Mrs. Smith to Mission: Impossible 3. Still, no one does it better, in terms of ‘90s action glee, than a pun-dispensing Arnold Schwarzenegger - so it was probably inevitable that True Lies would get a reboot of some sort.
Enter Fox’s newest television remake prospect.
As revealed via Deadline, the new series is in development at 20th Century Television, with McG and Arrow’s Marc Guggenheim credited as creators and executive producers.
Tony Gilroy, who made his directorial debut with “Michael Clayton,” is in negotiations to write and possibly direct an untitled thriller for Warner Bros. with “Harry Potter” producer David Heyman.
If the deal goes through, it will be Gilroy’s first directing gig since 2012’s “The Bourne Legacy,” starring Jeremy Renner. Gilroy also co-wrote the script for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” with Chris Weitz.
The Warner Bros. project, formerly called “Methuselah,” has been in the works since 2009 at Warner Bros. and had Tom Cruise attached at one point. Based on the character from the Bible, the story follows a man who lives for hundreds of years and has used his time to develop an incredible set of survival skills

A pilot lands work for the CIA and as a drug runner in the south during the 1980s.
There’s an unshakeable feeling that Tom Cruise is actually trying in American Made, Doug Liman’s derivative if not entertaining Goodfellas-lite comic thriller. Cruise has been the movie star for the past two decades, but his on-screen persona only exists as a parallel to Cruise as the movie star. Few risks are taken, so American Made, albeit steeped in cliché, is a rather welcome detour away from the glamour and stunts of the monolithic blockbusters he finds comfort in.
It’s all too easy to forget his 1-2-3-4 punch of The Last Samurai, Collateral, War of the Worlds,
According to The Hollywood Reporter, and in light of Tom Cruise’s “serious” on-set injury, production on Mission: Impossible 6 has officially shut down to lend Cruise adequate time to recover. The action sequel will now remain on hiatus for eight to nine weeks, and though one might assume that this lengthy spell on the sidelines would adversely affect the July 27th, 2018 release date, Paramount is sticking to its guns.
The studio has now issued a statement addressing Tom Cruise’s injuries, revealing that the Mission: Impossible mainstay broke his ankle while performing a rooftop stunt in London earlier this week. Footage captured by TMZ showed Cruise, who is widely known for tackling daredevil feats without the need for a stand-in, leaping between two office blocks. It looked to be a fairly routine stunt – by Cruise’s lofty standards, at least – but
