Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation was hardly on my radar before that spectacular first trailer, and now everything I’m seeing about the high-octane fivequel is getting me more excited for it. Today brings the release of some high-quality stills from the pic, which finds Tom Cruise again taking on the role of Imf agent Ethan Hunt.
This time around, Hunt becomes the hunted (see what I did there?) when a probably evil bureaucrat played by Alec Baldwin (is there any other kind?) opts to disband the Imf, which has a very strong success rate but usually has trouble keeping things on the down-low. Of course, this political maneuver comes at pretty much the worst time imaginable for Hunt, seeing as he’s faced with trying to stop a nefarious organization known as The Syndicate from raining chaos down across the world.

In exactly two months, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation officially lights the fuse! For the fifth mission, Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) took on directing duties with megastar Tom Cruise (Edge Of Tomorrow) reprising his role as Imf Agent Ethan Hunt and leading an ensemble cast that features Jeremy Renner (Avengers: Age Of Ultron), Simon Pegg (Star Trek), Ving Rhames (Mission: Impossible 3), Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules), and Alec Baldwin (The Departed). Not much has been revealed about the film's plot yet, but if we've learned anything about Cruise over the years, it's that he rarely disappoints, so on July 31st, be ready to gear up for the wildest ride of the summer! And if I had to make an educated guess, I'd say we should expect to see a new action-packed trailer within the month as well as a variety of other promotional material. Additionally, thanks to the Tom Cruise Blog, »
Streaming now on Netflix is Christopher McQuarrie's action/thriller Jack Reacher, adapted from the Lee Child novel One Shot. This one had been sitting in my queue for some time and it finally got the call up this past week when Adam kindly gave notice that it would be leaving Netflix on June 30th. Released by Paramount in 2012 as the first movie adaptation of Child's popular book series, Reacher garnered modest box office returns domestically but played well enough abroad for the studio to move forward with a sequel, possibly with Oscar winner Edward Zwick at the helm. I consider this to be good news because Jack Reacher is actually pretty damn solid. Starring Tom Cruise as the titular character, McQuarrie's film assembles a fantastic cast around him that includes Rosamund Pike, David Oyelowo, Richard Jenkins, Robert Duvall, and Werner Herzog in an excellent turn as the villain known »

While we recently shared the list of titles that are coming to Netflix Instant Watch in June, now’s the time to take a look at the movies and TV shows that will be departing the streaming service next month. Your last chance (at least for a while) to watch Rain Man, The Silence of the Lambs, The Rocketeer, Taxi Driver, and the somewhat underrated Syriana. If you haven’t it, I highly suggest checking out the excellent Jack Reacher. And if for some reason you want to watch Crash again, now’s the time. Check out the full list of titles departing Netflix in June below.

Before Cards Against Humanity, we played Apples to Apples, and if you wanted to make that game any fun at all for someone over 10, you had to have an inside joke wild card. And of course the only good wild card that could win every time no matter what was Helen Keller. Her name has become more synonymous with a meme than with her actual life. And Pro Tip: Helen Keller and Anne Frank are two different people.
But Helen Keller remains so awesome, that this latest movie that you should absolutely give all your money to is so epic that the crazy wild Wtf name Helen Keller vs. Nightwolves cannot even do it justice.
Currently Helen Keller vs. Nightwolves has 16 days left in a $1 million Indiegogo campaign to complete post-production on the film. Directed by Ross Patterson, who wrote the tongue-in-cheek Western novel At Night She Cries While He Rides His Steed, »

It's last call for a lot of great movies that are leaving Netflix in June, including "Taxi Driver" (1976), "Donnie Brasco" (1997), "Rain Man" (1988) and "The Rocketeer" (1991). Also, say goodbye to Best Picture Oscar winners "Amadeus" (1984), "The Silence of the Lambs" (1991), and "Crash" (2004). And take a bow, Madonna: Your films "Swept Away" (2002) and "Madonna: The Mdna Tour" (2013) are also being yanked in June, as is ex Guy Ritchie's "Snatch" (2000).
Here's a complete list of the movies that Netflix is pulling from your streaming list. And, just so you're not left empty-handed, here's a list of what's new on Netflix in June 2015. (All titles and dates provided by Netflix and subject to change.)

Star Wars: Lawrence Kasdan, who most recently co-wrote Star Wars: The Force Awakens with J.J. Abrams, says, "Right now, there’s no Lando Calrissian [the character played by Billy Dee Williams] in this movie. But Lando I don’t think is finished in any way, shape, or form." Kasdan, who also co-wrote The Empire Strikes Back -- he's pictured above with director Irvin Kershner, producer Gary Kurtz, and George Lucas -- and Return of the Jedi, gave no other hints about the character's possible return. Recently Williams reprised the character on the animated series Star Wars Rebels.

Paramount Pictures is in talks with director Ed Zwick and writer Marshall Herskovitz, who previously worked with Tom Cruise on "The Last Samurai," for Cruise's upcoming "Jack Reacher" sequel. The original film was released in 2012 and went on to gross $218 million on a budget of $60 million. The franchise is based on Lee Child's novel series. The sequel will focus on the "Never Go Back" book that was published in 2013. In the book, Reacher heads back to his old military base in Virginia to take a woman to dinner who is now the commanding officer. By the time he gets there, she has been arrested, and Reacher finds himself being charged with pummeling one guy and fathering a child with a woman. He can't remember either transgression but gets to the bottom of it with cunning and sometimes brute force. »
Jack Reacher may not have been the biggest hit of Tom Cruise's career, but it grossed a cool $218m at the box office off a $60m budget. That got it over the sequel line, should all concerned want to make one.
And now they do.
Tom Cruise is set to return as Reacher in a new adventure that's going to be based on the most recent of author Lee Child's novels, Never Go Back. This time though, Christopher McQuarrie - who's currently putting the finishing touches to this summer's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation - won't be directing. Instead, we now learn that the job has gone to Ed Zwick.
It wasn’t quite a foregone conclusion but Tom Cruise and Paramount have ploughed ahead with development on a sequel to 2012’s Jack Reacher. It’s now looking like Cruise’s frequent collaborator (and Reacher/Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation director) Christopher McQuarrie won’t be back for the new film, with Deadline reporting that Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz are in talks to sign on behind the camera instead.If the deal is hammered out, it would reunite Cruise with the creative team behind The Last Samurai, with Zwick taking the director’s chair and working on the script with Herskovitz. Given McQuarrie’s busy schedule on Rogue Nation (which is now set to arrive in cinemas on July 30), he hasn’t had the necessary time to devote to Reacher, and Paramount had Equalizer writer Richard Wenk working on a script, which the new duo will rewrite. McQuarrie isn't going to be completely hands-free, »
This will be a reunion for Zwick and Cruise, who previously collaborated on the Academy Award-nominated war film The Last Samurai in 2003.
His deal with Paramount could also include the hiring of Last Samurai co-writer Marshall Herskovitz to work with him on Never Go Back as well.
Tom Cruise is set to re-team with his ‘Last Samurai’ director Edward Zwick for the follow-up to his extremely successful Jack Reacher adaptation, which was released in 2012. Zwick, along with Marshall Herskovitz, will rewrite the screenplay by Richard Wenk.
The new film will be based on the novel ‘Never Go Back’ by Lee Child, which sees Reacher head back to his old military base in Virginia to take a woman to dinner who is now the commanding officer. By the time he gets there, she has been arrested, and Reacher finds himself being charged with pummeling one guy and fathering a child with a woman. He can’t remember either transgression but gets to the bottom of it with cunning and sometimes brute force.
Christopher McQuarrie directed the first movie, which grossed over $210 million worldwide and he will return to executive produce.
Zwick has a host of critically acclaimed credits to his name, »

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Paramount and Skydance have enlisted both Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz to re-write Richard Wenk's script for the upcoming sequel to their 2012 hit Jack Reacher. Zwick has also signed on to direct the yet-to-be titled sequel, which will reunite the Academy Award-winner with megastar Tom Cruise, who he directed in the critically acclaimed 2003 film The Last Samurai. Cruise will also produce alongside Chris McQuarrie and Don Granger. The original Jack Reacher grossed over $218M worldwide on about a $60M budget, and managed to do very well on home video raking in another $23M or so, which made green lighting a sequel a no-brainer for the studios. Jack Reacher 2 is set to adapt Never Go Back, a more recent Lee Child novel, which finds Cruise's titular hero back at his old military base and quickly caught up in a conspiracy involving old colleagues, »
Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz are reteaming with their The Last Samurai star Tom Cruise to tackle a Jack Reacher sequel, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Paramount and Skydance are behind the new installment, which will continue the adventures of a former military police officer who continues to help people out. Reacher is an adaptation of a line of books by Lee Child, and the first installment proved to be a sleeper hit when it was released December 2012. (It grossed $80 million domestic and $218 million worldwide on a reported budget of $60 million.) Christopher McQuarrie wrote and

Tom Cruise’s Jack Reacher is a spectacularly underrated – and just plain spectacular – crime thriller, which adapted the world of author Lee Child back in 2012. The news that a sequel officially is moving forward will make fans rave, even though the delight has to come with a mild bit of pushback. Let’s start with the good news. Variety reports that Paramount and Skydance have hired Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz to pen the screenplay for Jack Reacher 2, though there is a very good chance it will not be called that. The duo will be working off of the Lee Child novel Never Go Back, in which Tom Cruise’s character, Jack Reacher, travels to Virginia to finally meet Susan, a female military officer who has been helping him, via telephone, on previous engagements. Only, when he arrives, he walks into a mess of trouble & »
Now they have my attention. It's being reported by Deadline that Paramount and Skydance are looking to hire Edward Zwick (aka Ed Zwick) for the in-development Jack Reacher sequel, which will once again star Tom Cruise. Based on Lee Child's book series, the first film followed Cruise as Jack Reacher being framed for killing innocent people, and was directed by Christopher McQuarrie. While McQuarrie has since moved on to direct Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, he will still be executive producing this. Cruise will return for Jack Reacher 2 with Zwick at the helm, directing a script by Richard Wenk that will be revised by Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz before they start filming. A few more details on this next one found below. Early word is that Jack Reacher 2 will be based on the book Never Go Back, published in 2013. "Reacher heads back to his old military base in »

The Jack Reacher sequel is about to take a big step forward. Ed Zwick (The Last Samurai) is reportedly in talks to direct the follow-up to the Tom Cruise thriller. In addition, Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz will take a pass at the script. More on the Ed Zwick Jack Reacher sequel news after the jump. Deadline reports Zwick […]
