Latest Mission: Impossible 5 Set Photos Have Tom Cruise Hanging Onto A Plane At 5,000 Feet

3 November 2014 9:44 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For Tom Cruise, it seems nothing is impossible. The 52-year old star is currently filming Mission: Impossible 5 in the United Kingdom and recent set photos have emerged that show the renowned daredevil performing what is perhaps his most outrageous stunt to date: hanging onto an Airbus A400M from 5,000 feet.

Clearly not a fan of resting on his laurels — Ghost Protocol had the actor run down the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building (2717 ft) — Cruise has went one over for Christopher McQuarrie’s upcoming sequel and is seen strapped onto the door of the airborne aircraft in a fully tailored suit — very James Bond, if you ask us.

The ambitious, death-defying take was headed up by the film’s stunt coordinator Wade Eastwood, which saw the huge cargo plane circle the fields of Wittering at around 250mph. Talk about in-flight entertainment.

Most daring stunt Ever by a movie star? »

Is Superman being shortchanged by the DC movie universe?

20 October 2014 2:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Superman will appear at least three times in movies in the next five years. But will any of them be a standalone Man Of Steel adventure?

A further, potentially important casting rumour for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice landed over the weekend, which you can read about - with appropriate spoiler pre-warning - here. The bottom line remains of Zack Snyder's March 2016 movie is this: it's going to have an awful lot of DC characters in it.

Originally mooted as the follow-up to 2013's Man Of Steel, the film is said to pick up from where that movie left things, but also add a whole host of new faces. It's already well known that Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman are on board. But rumours suggest we might also get an appearance from Aquaman (as played by Jason Momoa), whilst Jesse Eisenberg joins as »

Eddie Izzard Adapting Junior Bender For NBC

6 October 2014 2:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s not enough Eddie Izzard to go around. The comedian has his hands in quite a number of pots right now. Having appeared as a supporting player in films like Ocean’s Twelve and Valkyrie – not to mention his stand-up comedy and star-turn in the short-lived series The Riches – Izzard has also turned to writing and producing, as well as acting. He’s worked on NBC’s Hannibal and Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane, and is set to appear in the comics adaptation Powers. Now, The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Izzard is set to adapt Timothy Hallinan’s crime-comedy novel series Junior Bender for the small screen.

NBC has secured Izzard to co-write Junior Bender alongside Royal Pains executive producer Jessica Bell, and frequent Izzard collaborator Sarah Townsend. The project focuses on a high-end thief in Los Angeles who moonlights as a private-eye for criminals – when the crooks can’t go to the cops, »

In a Nutshell: Ninja Apocalypse

19 September 2014 4:20 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Remember that level in Streets of Rage where you battle a horde of bad guys on a lift as you make your way up to the final boss? That's what Ninja Apocalypse reminded me of. But without the awesomeness. Obviously. Ninja Apocalypse isn't a bad film by any stretch of the imagination, it's just not a very good one either. Directed by Lloyd Lee Barnett, who worked on the visual effects for big budget pictures like Avatar, Spiderman and The Lord of the Rings, Ninja Apocalypse reads like a goofy concept on paper but takes itself way too seriously for that. Thankfully, as you would expect considering his track record in the industry, Barnett does conjure up some nifty effects work along the way. It's not much but it certainly takes the focus away from the lukewarm action choreography. Framed for assassinating Grandmaster Fumitaka (Shang Tsung from Mortal Kombat), the »

Summer Film Budgets vs. Total Worldwide Grosses

2 September 2014 6:51 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

While studios tout records, market share and No. 1 status based on box office grosses, we thought it’d be a good idea to look at some of this year’s summer films (tentpoles and not) to see how their budgets stacked up against their worldwide grosses to date. These budget numbers do not include domestic/international marketing and distribution costs, nor do they take into account the splits with exhibitors, but they do give an idea of outlay and income. Bear in mind, that while some of the biggest offshore grosses come from China, the studios are only getting a 25% cut from that territory. Also, some of these pictures will end up doing well in home entertainment and may make a profit over time — as in, a few years.

Here are some of the films we were able to compile from smallest to highest budgets with worldwide grosses (and percentage »

"Edge Of Tomorrow" Passes Box-Office Milestone

2 September 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The critics really liked it, international audiences checked it out, but in the United States it seemed no-one was catching the Tom Cruise-led "Edge Of Tomorrow" in cinemas and many wrote it off as a flop on launch.

Yet, rather sneakily, the film has stuck around and this week officially crawled past the $100 million mark at the U.S. domestic box-office. That is significant as according to Box Office Guru, this marks the first Cruise-led film outside the "Mission: Impossible" franchise to have done so since 2005's "War of the Worlds".

Yes, 'Edge' has outpaced "Jack Reacher" ($80M) "Knight and Day" ($76M), "Oblivion" ($89M), "Rock of Ages" ($38M), "Valkyrie" ($83M) and "Lions for Lambs" ($15M) domestically. "Tropic Thunder" ($110M) did pass the mark, but Cruise was not the lead in that and it wasn't marketed on his involvement.

Considering 'Edge' opened to around $28 million, it has made three-and-a-half times »

DC superhero movies that never got the greenlight

27 August 2014 3:26 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We may be in the golden age of superhero cinema, but here are some DC movies that never made it…

Naysayers would have you believe that Hollywood chucks bucket-loads of cash at any old comic book movie pitch that happens to float through their corner-office window, get stuck to their shoe or come to them miraculously as an on-the-toilet epiphany.

However, this is not the case, particularly with DC comics characters. While some films that do get made may seem like bog-fodder (oh hey, Green Lantern), there are plenty of comic adaptation pitches, in-development scripts and passion projects that have ended up not getting made for various reasons.

We had a rummage through the aeons of DC cinema history (also known as extensive Googling) and pulled together all the comic book movie projects we could find that ended up in the bin of crushed dreams for Batman, Superman and more. »

20 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Tom Cruise proved he doesn’t have a fear of heights on Thursday, as he was pictured climbing across the roof of the Vienna State Opera House while filming scenes for Mission Impossible 5.

Tom Cruise Films 'Mission Impossible'

Strapped into a harness, Cruise climbed out onto the opera house to shoot a stunt scene for the latest Mission Impossible movie. Under the yellow and black harness, Cruise was outfitted casually in a tight gray t-shirt, dark jeans and brown lace-up shoes, and completed his look with a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses.

Joining Cruise atop the landmark in the Austrian capital was his costar Rebecca Ferguson. Clad in a black shirt, black pants and sneakers, the actress furtively stepped onto the roof’s platform.

In between shots, Cruise was pictured chatting with Ferguson, as well as with director Christopher McQuarrie, who previously directed Cruise in Jack Reacher. McQuarrie has also »

Ving Rhames Will Be Back For 'Mission: Impossible 5'

18 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Longtime fans of the Mission: Impossible film series should appreciate this.

Director Christopher McQuarrie has taken to twitter to announce that Ving Rhames, the only M: I star not named Tom Cruise to appear in all of the films so far, will be back for the fifth installment. Rhames's Luther Stickell first appeared as an ace computer hacker in the original film, which was directed by Brian De Palma. Since then, his role has become smaller- sometimes only appearing in a single scene for a quick cameo.  

Welcome back, Mr. Rhames. cc: @TomCruise @simonpegg @Renner4Real #MI5Diary

— ChristopherMcQuarrie (@chrismcquarrie) August 16, 2014

No word yet on whether his role will be more substantial this time, as the plot details for the film have been kept tightly under wraps. Expectations for the movie are pretty high, though, considering that the last one, Ghost Protocol, singlehandedly revived the franchise- which many had thought »

'Turn' showrunner on the fireworks that await in season 2

The first season of AMC’s Turn wasn’t exactly the shot heard ’round the world. Facing a slate of popular Sunday-night competition like Game of Thrones and The Good Wife, Craig Silverstein’s Revolutionary War drama had to fight for respect—something it ultimately won with a riveting finale that helped secure a second season. Jamie Bell stars as Abraham Woodhull, a Long Island cabbage farmer initially straddling the fence as the American uprising turns into a full-fledged war. His father (Kevin McNally) and wife (Meegan Warner) are staunch Tory loyalists; his childhood friends, including the love of his »
