Carmike: 'Cars' should help fuel '06 b.o.

7 December 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- Movie theater operator Carmike Cinemas is hopeful that the U.S. boxoffice will return to growth mode next year, chief financial officer Martin Durant said Tuesday. Speaking at the UBS Global Media Conference, he spoke out against day-and-date film and DVD releases and said Carmike will slowly start rolling out digital-film technology next year. "Something dramatic has to happen for next year to be weaker than this year," Durant said about the boxoffice, pointing out such upcoming wide releases as Cars, The Da Vinci Code, Ice Age 2, Superman Returns and Mission: Impossible 3, among others, as promising fare. However, he cautioned that Carmike isn't necessarily projecting a record-setting boxoffice next year. »

Daredevil Cruise Raises Blood Pressure on 'MI:3'

4 November 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Tom Cruise is terrifying film-makers on the set of Mission: Impossible III, by insisting on carrying out his own death-defying stunts. The superstar actor has refused to allow a stunt double to take on the dangerous high falls necessary for his part as secret agent Ethan Hunt in the sequel - and his willingness to push himself to the limit even scares legendary stunt coordinator Vic Armstrong, who is working on the film with him. Armstrong tells Total Film magazine "He did a 70 foot fall for us last week. He's amazing. He did about seven takes. Absolutely terrifies me - I can see the headlines! What a way to finish a career." »

Commission sells glory of Rome

4 August 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

ROME -- While the year-old Rome Film Commission is continuing to champion high-profile film shoots like Mission Impossible 3, increased competition from low-cost alternative regions and a lack of tax incentives or shelters like those offered by European neighbors like Bulgaria and Romania is presenting the commission with some major challenges. According to tracking data, 2004 was a record year for the Eternal City, with the commission issuing a record 2,433 permits. That figure included 43 Italian films, eight foreign films, 44 television films and series and 129 commercials. The number of permits issued for 2005 got off to a slow start but, according to the Commission's Alvaro Eliseo, it is only slightly down from where it was last year at this time. With its decades-old moniker of Hollywood on the Tiber, Rome has hosted some of the most famous cinematic productions of the last 60 years, including such classics as Quo Vadis, The Robe, Ben Hur and Cleopatra. »

6 May 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

He tells website About.com, "The script was rewritten. I'm a huge fan of each actor that they cast originally, but to have kept the actors when we are reinventing the story would have been an odd process. "To say, 'Write a script with these people in mind for characters that haven't been written,' just felt like we had to start over with a clean slate." Abrams, who has yet to announce his replacements for the project, is committed to starting the shoot in July. »
