A little Scientology matchmaking appears to be taking place as Katie Holmes ex husband Tom Cruise finally has a new girlfriend and instead of trying to convince someone else about his religion he grabbed a covert - he's dating Laura Prepon. The 'Valkyrie' actor - who was previously married to Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes - is said to have asked the 'Orange is the New Black' star out on a date after being ''fascinated'' by his fellow Scientologist for a long time. A source told the new UK issue of Grazia magazine: ''Tom has known Laura for a few years now and they are all in the same social group that includes John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston. ''He's always been fascinated by her and, since seeing her in 'Orange Is The New Black', that has turned into an attraction. So he »
2011's "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" was about as big and as pleasurable a surprise as you could imagine. Four movies into the franchise, which had already weathered a series of ups and downs, returned in fine form with a beautifully directed, wonderfully exciting installment directed by a filmmaker making his live action debut, Brad Bird ("Ratatouille"). Beyond the smashing creative accomplishment, it was also a genuine blockbuster; not only was it the highest grossing entry in the franchise, but also the highest grossing movie starring Tom Cruise. Ever.
So the pressure's on for "Mission: Impossible 5" to actually deliver. Much about the sequel remains unknown, although considering producer J.J. Abrams is back on board, it's safe to assume that at least some of the characters from the fourth film will make it back (the team dynamic was so great there). At least we now know when to look for »

Next in line to inherit the throne of Royal films is Diana. The film takes audiences into the private realm of one of the world’s most iconic and inescapably public women – the Princess of Wales, Diana (two-time Oscar nominee Naomi Watts) — in the last two years of her meteoric life.
On the occasion of the 16th anniversary of her sudden death, acclaimed director Oliver Hirschbiegel (the Oscar-nominated Downfall) explores Diana’s final rite of passage: a secret love affair with Pakistani heart surgeon Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews, “Lost,” The English Patient), the human complications of which reveal the Princess’s climactic days in a compelling new light. Diana is in select theaters now.
As long as filmmakers have been bringing the lives of England’s Kings and Queens to the silver screen have moviegoers been going to the cinemas to be schooled in British Monarchy.

Skydance Productions has been trying to make a live action feature film adaptation of Star Blazers for a couple of years now, and they've finally landed a director!

WikiLeaks movie ‘The Fifth Estate’: Bradley Manning episode ‘the best part of the film’ (photo: Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange in ‘The Fifth Estate’) (See previous post: “‘The Fifth Estate’ Movie Review Pt.1: ‘Tasty’ But ‘Opaque’ Take on Julian Assange.”) The Fifth Estate begins and eventually circles back to the Bradley Manning episode, in which the now-incarcerated Army private handed almost 450,000 U.S. military documents to WikiLeaks. This section is, by a far sight, the best part of the film. It slows down to consider the stakes and let interpersonal conflicts simmer and boil. Here, Daniel’s growing sense of apostasy towards the imperious Assange mixes with traditional media (represented by David Thewlis, as The Guardian reporter Nick Davies) deciding whether to cross the Rubicon and get into bed with someone so arrogantly deficient in journalistic ethics. Out of self-preservation, the old-school Guardian partnered with the internet provocateur and got what it deserved. »

Here’s more good news to set up your weekend right: Bryan Singer, the writer/director of most of the X-Men movies (including the one coming up) amongst other wonderful work and projects, has worked a deal with Syfy to develop a 90 minute drama pilot for a potential series, entitled Creature at Bay.
What’s even better is the subject – it takes place in a Northern California town cleaning up after the military has taken down a Kaiju! (That’s a Godzilla kind of monster, in case you missed the dozens of posts here about Pacific Rim.) Here are all the deets:

Sure producers accept the award when a movie wins Best Picture at the Oscars and get to say awesome things like "I'll make you a star, kid!," but what the hell does a producer actually do?
Well, the answer is sometimes everything from coordinating the script's development, financing and hiring the film's director ... and sometimes doing little beyond having a famous name and giving a thumbs-up at the movie's premiere. However, we're sure the following famous folks, who have had surprising producer credits on a variety of flicks, were more hands-on types when it came to getting these 13 movies made.
1. Tobey Maguire, '25th Hour' (2002)
Spike Lee's "25th Hour" is one of his most memorable joints, featuring a knockout performance from Edward Norton as Monty, a drug dealer on his last day as a free man before heading to jail. Originally, however, Tobey Maguire had bought film rights to »

Although most of the story follows a predictable trajectory, there are some things to like. It’s enthusiastically acted and at times fun, but Jack the Giant Slayer also feels like it was made by a committee. It’s fast paced, energetic but also overwhelmed by digital effects. And it could be a great recommendation for children under the age of ten, only the CGI-heavy battle scenes, landed it with a PG-13 rating. Ultimately it’s an entertaining diversion but not something you’ll revisit ever again.

Playing with the A Face in the Crowd formula (including a sly “naming names” reference), Public Access is the film that started the Bryan Singer-Christopher McQuarrie collaboration. The Sundance splash follows Whiley Pritcher (Ron Marquette) as a preppy drifter who shows up in the idyllic town of Brewster to start »
It's a Tom Cruise movie.
It's one of a host of female figures who decides which soldiers will die in battle, according to Norse mythology.
And now it's also something for Castle fans to ponder: The Season 6 premiere of this ABC favorite will be titled Valkyrie.
Castle Season 6 kicks off on Monday, September 23 and it's easily one of the more anticipated fall premieres, for one simple reason:
Viewers will find out whether or not Beckett accepts Castle's proposal. And as we count down the days until this reveal, we'll continue to ask TV Fanatic readers: How should Kate respond to Rick's big question? »

Whenever Christopher McQuarrie gets around to buying a stretch yacht, he should probably name it something like Thank You, Tom Cruise. Especially now that the writer-director is, as previously predicted, finalizing his deal to helm the fifth film in the Mission: Impossible franchise/perpetual moneymaking machine. Coincidentally, the sequel also marks McQuarrie’s fifth film with Cruise, after doing varying degrees of script work on Valkyrie, M:i-4, the upcoming, just-renamed Edge Of Tomorrow, and the possibly stillborn Top Gun 2. Oddly enough, McQuarrie will not be penning the newest installment in the adventures of Ethan Hunt, as many understandably »
