Director Tomas Alfredson returns with The Snowman, his first film since 2011’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Adapted from the novel by Norwegian crime-writer Jo Nesbø, The Snowman follows Harry Hole (yes, really), a detective with unorthodox methods who finds himself investigating the disappearance of a woman whose scarf was found wrapped around a snowman.
Michael Fassbender plays Harry Hole (yes, really), and he leads a cast that includes Rebecca Ferguson, Chloë Sevigny, Charlotte Gainsbourg, J.K. Simmons, Val Kilmer, James D’Arcy, and Toby Jones. An adaptation of The Snowman has been knocking around since at least 2013, when Martin Scorsese was first attached to helm the film, but then the Let the Right One In director took the helm and ahead of a release this fall, the first trailer has landed.
“It’s got that Scandi-noir element to it, for sure. I think it’s going to be very rich. I love working with Tomas Alfredson. »

In Hollywood, there are movie stunts, and then there are Tom Cruise movie stunts.
Whether it’s scaling Dubai’s famous Burj Khalifa or clinging on to the side of an airborne military plane, Cruise excels in the extraordinary, and he’ll look to continue that streak with the release of Paramount’s untitled Mission: Impossible 6 in 2018.
Indeed, writer-director Christopher McQuarrie is no stranger to orchestrating an action sequence involving Tom Cruise, having directed the Hollywood veteran in Jack Reacher and Rogue Nation, which scored an impressive $682 million worldwide two years ago and proved that, even after all these years, there’s still an appetite for impossible, death-defying missions revolving around Ethan Hunt and the Imf.
Production on Mission: Impossible 6 has now uprooted for London, England, and we know from recently-released set photos that Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames), and Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg) will »

On your feet, maggot! For a film that arrived with little-to-no fanfare, Edge of Tomorrow performed relatively well – critically, if not financially – three years ago, carving out an impassioned fanbase in the process.
In those intervening years, viewers have long wondered whether Tom Cruise (The Mummy) and Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins Returns) would ever circle back to the battlefield to wage war against the Mimics once more. And though Doug Liman’s under-appreciated gem didn’t exactly set the box office on fire, Warner Bros. and the creative team have pulled together to craft Edge of Tomorrow 2 – otherwise known as Live Die Repeat and Repeat.
One member of that creative team is Christopher McQuarrie, who currently has his hands full with the as-yet-untitled Mission: Impossible 6 in anticipation of its July 2018 release date. That being said, McQuarrie is expected to help develop Edge of Tomorrow 2 alongside Doug Liman, Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse, »

Neil Calloway says it’s time Hollywood started saying no to Cruise…
It’s a cliché to say success has many fathers while failure is an orphan, but it’s no less true for that. The most recent example of this in Hollywood is everyone disowning The Mummy and blaming its poor box office on star Tom Cruise having too much control over the project. It’s easily done, and most films that fail will go through similar finger-pointing and blame spreading. The thing is, in this case, you can imagine its true.
Cruise can be a superb actor; when he challenges himself to get out of his comfort zone – an all too rare experience these days – he’s brilliant. He’s better than Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man, amazing in Magnolia, the best thing in Collateral, but far too often he falls back on the same stock characters in ultimately forgettable films. »

Universal launched its new Dark Universe franchise with The Mummy reboot, which boasted the star-power of Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe in a world where they will bring several iconic monsters and creatures back to life, in present day. The studio didn't quite get the results it was looking for at the domestic box office, with a lackluster debut of $31.3 million, debuting in a distant second place to Wonder Woman ($58.5 million) in its second weekend. The movie was also a dud with critics, with a paltry 16% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with many wondering how a movie with so much talent behind and in front of the camera, could fail so badly. A new report claims that a majority of the blame should be placed on Tom Cruise's shoulders, due to the immense amount of creative control he had on the project.

There were few signs that a major blockbuster was about to premiere when “The Mummy” rolled into Manhattan last week. The marquee of the AMC Loews Lincoln Square Theatres had gone blank. The carpet was totally covered with black plastic. Security only let guests past barricades after quizzing them about what they were there to see, and everybody had to walk through two imposing metal detectors.
Inside the theater, Tom Cruise was jubilant, as he stood in front of the crowd. “Hey y’all,” said the 54-year-old actor. He introduced Alex Kurtzman, the film’s director, as well as the cast members, who stood quietly as Cruise delivered a 10-minute improvised speech. “Movies aren’t made by single people,” he said. “It’s a team effort.”
But in the case of “The Mummy,” one person–Cruise–had an excessive amount of control, according to several people interviewed. The reboot of »

Tom Cruise is no doubt one of the biggest actors in the world today. But has he done much “acting” in the last 10 years? I’m going to argue, “not really.” You hear way more about Cruise’s stunts in films he’s in than the acting he does. From your Mission Impossible’s to your Jack Reacher’s what in the hell has Tom Cruise done in the last however many years that constitutes any kind of real acting? And now that The Mummy is out, it’s evident Cruise is just a poster child for action movies. Frankly how long can this go
It’s Been Over a Decade Since a Solid Acting Role of Tom Cruise’s Career »

Tom Cruise’s latest starring role in a franchise-facing actioner may not be the out-and-out disaster so many pictured when the first reviews for “The Mummy” started rolling in (current Rotten Tomatoes score: 17%, his second-lowest of all-time), but it’s still worrisome for a tentpole film meant to launch an entirely new franchise. Box office aside, “The Mummy” points to another troubling element in Cruise’s career: woeful repetition.
Cruise remains one of Hollywood’s last big movie stars, a bankable talent who almost exclusively stars in major films that are expected to make a pretty penny at the box office. In recent years, Cruise has leaned hard on large-scale studio projects, from the enduringly popular “Mission: Impossible” franchise to pricey studio outings like “Oblivion” and “Rock of Ages,” and while he’s still a major marquee name, his career is lacking the kind of daring and exciting choices that once made it stand out. »

If there’s one thing you can count on when you see a Tom Cruise franchise action movie, it’s the look on his face. It is cool and poised, sleek and alert; it’s all dashing resolve. But during “The Mummy,” I kept looking at Cruise and having a strange sensation, which is that the emotion those familiar features seemed to be radiating was, in a word, confusion. Throughout the movie, he looked a little slack and a little blank, a little what-the-heck-is-going-on? It could, theoretically, have been an element of Cruise’s performance. His character, a tomb raider named Nick Morton, gets invaded by the spirit of an Egyptian mummy; his soul then becomes a battleground between good and evil (at least, that’s the idea). That could be enough to leave one confused. The truth is, though, that the slightly discombobulated look on Cruise’s face throughout »

Alex Kurtzman knows his way around a franchise. The writer-director-producer had a hand in creating million-dollar tentpoles out of Transformers and Star Trek, in addition to scripting the second installment in The Amazing Spider-Man series. With his latest, a reboot of The Mummy starring Tom Cruise, he hopes to not only resurrect the iconic bandaged baddie, but spawn an entire cinematic universe of Universal Monster movies, to be known as the Dark Universe.
"It's like childbirth," Kurtzman told Et of the anticipation he feels over fans finally being able to see his take on The Mummy (in theaters now). "The head is crowning, so you're just waiting for the whole world to see your child. It's exciting! It's been a long journey."

The Mummy review: The world’s biggest star. A universe to establish. Could this be Universal’s money maker?
The Mummy review
We need movie universes now and you bloody well know it. It used to be sequels, then there were trilogies, the odd spin-off, but now it’s no longer enough. With most Marvel properties now back with Marvel, and DC safe at home with Warner Bros. other studios are struggling with universe ideas. Paramount have proposed a Transformers universe, and Sony want to ignite a baffling Robin Hood universe. So what do Universal have? Well, luckily it’s one of the more organic ideas in the form of their Dark Universe. Something they have tried to reignite in the past with The Mummy franchise and Van Helsing, the idea is to bring together all of their Universal Monsters together somehow. It’s hardly a fresh idea, »

Anyone who grew up in the 1970s fondly remembers “Chiller Theater” playing on Wpix in the NY area. Chiller introduced me to all the Universal classics – Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolfman and, of course, Karloff’s 1932 addition, The Mummy. Universal’s new re-imagining of their beloved classic isn’t that Mummy, not by a long shot– but we’re in a different time and a different world, so why not?
This new Mummy stars Tom Cruise as Nick Morton, an Army commando/antiquities raider who finds and sells priceless relics on the black market. He’s stolen a map from a lovely, combative British archaeologist (Annabelle Wallis) that leads him to modern day, ultra dangerous Iraq. After he and his Army bro (Jake Johnson) call in an airstrike to save them from insurgents, a missile blast reveals the hidden tomb of Ahmanet, an Egyptian Princess who murdered her »
