Movie marketeers are always scouring the ideas pile for new ways to get their films’ promotional messages in front of potential moviegoers. Paramount’s gurus are going one step further and plonking part of their film in front of an actual audience. If you’re in the UK or Us and planning to catch Terminator Genisys at your local IMAX, congratulations. You’ll get the first five minutes of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation into the bargain.While this deal - buy one T-800, get Tom Cruise clinging to a supersonic motorbike totally free – looks like a calculated move to drive Terminator ticket sales, it is a chance for cinemagoers to catch an early glimpse of the fifth Imf-er. The Christopher McQuarrie-overseen action sequences, judging by the first trailers, are more daffy and deranged even than those in previous instalments. And, lest we forget, they were fairly deranged.For those not in the know, »
Normally, I'm not one to brag, but I would like to say right off the bat, I think I did pretty well with my must-see list last month. Of my five official picks -- Spy, Jurassic World, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Dope and Inside Out -- the closest I got to suggesting you see a movie people generally didn't like was Jurassic World, which has broken all sorts of box office records and sits at a "fresh" 71% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not that box office results or Rotten Tomatoes are the ultimate barometers of quality, but I have to base this off something, rightc Personally I didn't much care for the new Jurassic film aside from a few scenes of enormous spectacle, but others found plenty to like in it. I also ended up seeing Dope twice -- that one might be my favorite movie so far this »

If you can’t wait for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, you’lll have an opportunity to see five minutes of the film nearly a month early—and on the big screen, no less. Paramount Pictures announced today that a five-minute sneak peek of the fifth Mission: Impossible film will debut exclusively in front of North American IMAX screenings of Terminator Genisys, with screenings beginning at 7pm on June 30th. Directed and co-written by Jack Reacher helmer Christopher McQuarrie, Rogue Nation finds Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt and his Imf team disbanded and out in the cold, as a new threat surfaces in the form of a network of special agents called the Syndicate. While the movie’s release was pushed up five months not so long ago, during Steve’s interview with Skydance Productions executives David Ellison and Dana Goldberg, they revealed that Rogue Nation’s first test screening scored »

Speaking at the Berlin press junket for the upcoming release of "Terminator Genisys," Skydance Productions CEO David Ellison and Cco Dana Goldberg have discussed with Collider some of the other projects on the company's slate including some fairly high profile sequels - namely "Top Gun" and "Jack Reacher" follow-ups.
In regards to "Top Gun 2," Justin Marks is currently writing the screenplay which will be very much about contemporary times and involve "drone technology and fifth generation fighters" along with exploring the end of an era of dogfighting and fighter pilots.

Though it originally appeared that less-than-spectacular box office grosses for Jack Reacher had killed any chance of a franchise, Skydance eventually decided to push forward to adapt Lee Child’s Never Go Back as a sequel to the 2012 action-thriller. And recently, during a group conference held in honor of Terminator Genisys‘ upcoming release, Skydance CEO David Ellison and Cco Dana Goldberg revealed that they’re still hopeful about the prospect of Jack Reacher 2, with a loose plan to shoot the follow-up this fall.
Predictably, what it comes down to is the script. Edward Zwick (The Last Samurai) has been secured for the director’s chair, and Cruise is interested in coming back, but Richard Wenk’s first draft of the screenplay didn’t quite meet approval, so it’s in the process of being reworked.

While the Fast & Furious franchise might be the most flashy “rejuvenated” film series at the moment, I’d argue Mission: Impossible is the best. Thanks to Tom Cruise’s dedication and desire to allow filmmakers to put his or her stamp on each entry, the franchise hit a high point with Brad Bird’s 2012 film Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and looks to continue that streak with this summer’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, which reunites Cruise with his Jack Reacher writer/director Christopher McQuarrie. The film was originally slated for release this December, but Paramount made the bold move to push it up five months to this July. And now it appears as though the studio has a hit on its hands, as Steve recently took part in a group interview with Skydance Productions CEO David Ellison and Cco Dana Goldberg at the Berlin premiere of Terminator Genisys, who had »

While I’m a big Tom Cruise fan, I’ll admit I wasn’t too heavily interested in 2012 Jack Reacher. I hadn’t read the books, and the movie seemed like it was probably a pretty standard macho-thriller. Then I actually saw the film and discovered that I was very, very wrong. Writer/director Christopher McQuarrie had crafted a top-notch suspense thriller with intense, visceral action sequences and a strong narrative drive filled with twists and turns that kept the audience on its toes. It’s no wonder that Cruise subsequently tapped McQuarrie to direct Mission: Impossible 5. While Jack Reacher was a sizeable success, it wasn’t a runaway hit by any means. Paramount and Skydance Productions clearly had franchise hopes given that Lee Child's books offered plenty of material for sequels, and good news arrived in December 2013 when we learned that Paramount and Cruise were indeed moving forward on Jack Reacher 2, »

Tom Cruise, then. When he's not posing for photos on the top of tall buildings, he's hanging off the side of planes or narrowly dodging errant motorcycles. Now, he's set for his toughest challenge ever: this three-man looking-cool-in-sunglasses competition on the new Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation IMAX poster. For those not in the know, Jack Reacher and Way Of The Gun alum Christopher McQuarrie is marshalling the Mission madness his time around, as our heroes - Simon Pegg's Benji, Jeremy Renner's William Brandt, Ving Rhames' Luther Stickell and newcomer Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson) - are up against something called 'The Syndicate', a rogue nation organisation that is trained and equipped much like the Imf, but intends to destroy them. And then there's our own government, with Alec Baldwin's official looking to shut down Cruise's Ethan Hunt and his team for good. With Sean Harris, Simon McBurney and more aboard, »
I was wrong on a few fronts when I reviewed Netflix's "Sense8" after only three episodes. I suggested it would be a series that people would want to watch all at once, or not at all, when in fact I strung my viewing out over three weeks, only feeling a need to immediately jump to the next episode when I was nearing the season's end. And I thought the show's mythology would have to feel much less like gibberish for the full season to feel satisfying, when I ultimately enjoyed it even though I still couldn't tell you — nor did I really care — how these connections work. (Some minor spoilers follow, but if you're still just wondering if you should bother with "Sense8" at all, most of it should be safe to read, and I'll put in a warning before we get into more details.) These days, I hear more »

White Queen star Ferguson makes her franchise debut in Rogue Nation as Ilsa Faust, an intelligence operative who partners with Ethan Hunt (Cruise).
Faced with a worldwide conspiracy organised by the shadowy Syndicate and the CIA seeking him for arrest, Hunt has to partner with his old Impossible Missions Force team for what could be their final mission.
Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation bows on July 30 in the UK and July 30 in the Us. »
A new trailer for the fifth entry in the Mission: Impossible franchise, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation has Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt keeping his friends close and his enemies even closer (that is, if Imf can tell who the enemies really are ...). Co-written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher), the sequel finds Tom Cruise and his Imf pals attempting to take down “The Syndicate,” a worldwide criminal organization described as the “anti-imf.” The new trailer gives a clearer picture of that overall story, with the main question seeming to be "who can be trusted?" But as always, the trailer also shows a film that is star-studded and full of heart-pounding action (but one that is not without humor, thanks mostly to Simon Pegg). You can watch the new trailer below. The film opens in IMAX and traditional theaters on July 31st, and also stars Ving Rhames, Jeremy Renner, Sean Harris, »

Last mission? Really, Ethan Hunt?
That’s what he says (even though we don’t buy it) in the latest trailer for the next installment, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. The film returns Tom Cruise as Hunt as well as Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, Sean Harris, Simon McBurney, Rebecca Ferguson, and Alec Baldwin.
In this installment, Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate – an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the Imf.
The first trailer offered a short glimpse at all that this film entailed, but this one opens it up more.
Cruise’s Jack Reacher director, Christopher McQuarrie, takes over for Brad Bird in this film and it looks like it could be one of the best yet. The stunts look to be better (and bigger) than ever, and it seems like the film could bring »

The Mission: Impossible movies are ostensibly about a team of elite special agents who work for the Impossible Missions Force agency to thwart threats to America and its interests worldwide. Funny thing is, though, we're now five movies into the franchise and so far the only missions the Imf ever seem to pull off involve them thwarting people inside the Us government who want to shut them down. That seems to also be the plot in this July's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation from Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie, which finds the Us once again trying to shut down Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his team (Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, and now Rebecca Ferguson). CIA honcho Alec Baldwin really wants to do a better job than the last few CIA goons who...

We know Jai Courtney is hot. We've seen him in Divergent, Unbroken, A Good Day to Die Hard and Jack Reacher. Coming up is the Terminator reboot and the superhero villain flick, Suicide Squad. But he's giving us a really nice closeup look of his super hot body in the new issue of Interview magazine. In one shot, the 29-year-old Aussie is shirtless and leaning against a wall with his right arm bulging with muscles resting just below his hairy pumped chest. Courtney is rocking a beard and looking into the camera in a way that is sure to elicit all kinds of naughty thoughts. Another shirtless shot is taken from behind. Courtney's back is a brick house and both arms show the »
"The time has come to dissolve the Imf." Paramount has debuted the new trailer for Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, directed by Christopher McQuarrie, starring Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt. This time Hunt and his team goes on a mission to protect themselves and figure out how to survive when the Imf shuts down and comes under attack. The rest of the cast - Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Jeremy Renner - gets plenty of time in this trailer as do all the crazy action stunts, and I can't wait to see it. This looks like so much action-packed fun. "This may be our last mission" - uh, yeah right! Fire this up.

Yesterday saw the release of six character posters for Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, today comes a brand new trailer for the fifth film in the Mission: Impossible franchise featuring, once again, Tom Cruise in the lead role as Ethan Hunt. The film begins as the Imf has been disbanded, leaving Ethan and his team out in the cold just as a network of highly skilled special agents, dubbed the Syndicate, set their sights on creating a new world order through an escalating series of terrorist attacks. Ethan gathers his team and joins forces with disavowed British agent Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), who may or may not be a member of this rogue nation, as the group faces its most impossible mission yet. Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) directs and along with Cruise and Ferguson, the film co-stars Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, Alec Baldwin, Ving Rhames, Sean Harris and Simon McBurney. »

Paramount Pictures has released a new trailer for the fifth entry in the Mission: Impossible franchise, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Co-written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher), the sequel finds Tom Cruise and his Imf pals attempting to take down "The Syndicate", a worldwide criminal organization described as the "anti-imf". This movie looks ridiculously fun, and while the previous trailer made me think this would be more of a bare-knuckle, lo-tech affair, this new one shows that McQuarrie definitely hasn't forgotten the gadgets. He's also left in other aspects we've come to love from this franchise like complicated break-ins and daring escapes. Hopefully, we're in for another worthy entry to the Mission: Impossible series. Watch the new trailer below. The film opens in IMAX and traditional theaters on July 31st, and also stars Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, Sean Harris, Simon McBurney, and Alec Baldwin.
