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

4 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

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 »

Christopher McQuarrie Talks ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ and the Unexpected But Necessary Narrative of Filmmaking

3 July 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

At the start of Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow our hero, Major Bill Cage (Tom Cruise), is a coward. He’s more than ready to run from a fight he knows he’s not equipped for. That’s not the kind of hero we expect from a blockbuster, but it’s the type of subversive choice we should expect from screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, who had a hand in bringing Hiroshi Sakurazak’s graphic novel, All You Need Is Kill, to the big screen. A protagonist unwilling to help save the world isn’t the only fresh idea in Edge of Tomorrow. Even when Cage becomes a fierce soldier, he’s still no match for the bad-ass helicopter-blade-wielding Rita Vrastaski (Emily Blunt). She is the hero of this movie. Vrastaski drives the story. Cruise, once again playing a role a lot of movie stars would pass on, consistently pushed for his co-star to be this film’s »

‘Downfall’s Oliver Hirschbiegel Plots Story Of Failed Hitler Assassin ‘Georg Elser’

3 July 2014 3:15 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Downfall director Oliver Hirschbiegel is returning to familiar territory with Nazi-era drama Georg Elser. Billed as an emotional portrait of the resistance fighter who tried to assassinate Adolf Hitler in the Munich Bürgerbräukeller on November 8, 1939, the film kicked off shooting yesterday in Wackershofen/Southern Germany. Not to be confused with the July 20, 1944, assassination plot against Hitler that was the subject of Bryan Singer’s 2008 film Valkyrie, Elser’s attempt came five years earlier during what was expected to be a lengthy speech given by the Nazi leader for the anniversary of the 1923 Beer Hall Putsch.

Edge of Tomorrow Review: Redemption on the Grandest Scale

15 June 2014 8:09 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Director Doug Liman's Sci-Fi actioner Edge of Tomorrow finds the world at war with an alien race known as Mimics. The Mimics have invaded Earth and laid waste to most of Europe. As the Mimics head toward the United Kingdom to continue their path of destruction, the United Defense Force is preparing a major offensive on the shores of France in an effort to halt the offensive.

War is always a tough sell to the masses, but Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) has used his megawatt smile and killer charm to effectively do so. His slick ways have also helped him avoid taking part in any sort of actual combat against the Mimics.

When Cage is informed by a general named Brigham (Brendan Gleeson) that his next round of winning the hearts and minds involves being sent to the frontlines of the upcoming battle to cover it, Cage tries »

You'll Never Guess Which Country Loves Tom Cruise the Most

11 June 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Which country loves Tom Cruise the most? The movie geeks over at Vulture have crunched the data. Yes, Cruise's newest offering, Doug Liman's "Edge of Tomorrow," got steamrolled here in the U.S. over the weekend, bringing in just $29 million, well behind box office champ "The Fault in Our Stars" and week-old "Maleficent." So typically these days Warner Bros. is relying on the fact that nearly 78 percent of the gross so far--$111 million-- has come from international sales. In other words, overseas audiences love Tom Cruise. Vulture dug deeper through the box office data on Cruise's last 10 starring roles (Collateral, War of the Worlds, Mission: Impossible III, Valkyrie, Knight & Day, Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, Rock of Ages, Jack Reacher, Oblivion, and Edge of Tomorrow) and broke down the grosses by country. Yes, he's big in Japan.But Japan, with $251 million, takes a distant second to the country that spent »

Which Country Loves Tom Cruise the Most?

10 June 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow got smoked at the American box office over the weekend, finishing in third place behind The Fault in Our Stars and the week-old Maleficent. But even though the thing reportedly cost $178 million to make and earned only a measly $29 million in the U.S., it's no failure — because when you factor in foreign grosses, it's already made $140 million and should turn a profit shortly. It was the weekend's top-grossing movie worldwide because international audiences love Cruise, even if, since he jumped on Oprah's couch and blasted Brooke Shields's Paxil prescription, domestic ones have been lukewarm. But which country loves him the most? We crunched the numbers for his last ten starring roles (Collateral, War of the Worlds, Mission: Impossible III, Valkyrie, Knight & Day, Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, Rock of Ages, Jack Reacher, Oblivion, and Edge of Tomorrow) and — assuming you're not stuck »

Tom Cruise: The Man Inside the Machine

9 June 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Believe it or not, it’s not easy being Tom Cruise. Over the weekend, Tom Cruise’s latest big-budget scifi-actioner Edge of Tomorrow opened. To be polite, the box office returns left this $178 million picture well over the edge of being a box-office bomb with just over $29 million domestically, coming in 3rd place. In the film his character Bill Cage fights a superior and innumerable opponent in these organic machine aliens known as Mimics. This isn’t too dissimilar from where Cruise stands right now against the immeasurable tides of sequels, reboots and franchises. It almost makes Edge of Tomorrow autobiographical on Cruise’s part as he’s one of the only movie stars at his level not churning out a franchise film every year or two. And to go along with that theory, just as Cage is connected to the network that powers the Mimics, Cruise is certainly engaged with the studio system. »

When did big budget star vehicles become the underdogs?

8 June 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

After the curious case of Edge Of Tomorrow’s surprise critical popularity, Rob investigates a strange Hollywood happening…

Feature

The release of Edge Of Tomorrow - which opened in the Us this past weekend, following its bow in the UK a week earlier - has brought, not for the first time, a strange Hollywood trend to light. And it's this: do we trust big stars to make decent movies anymore?

Many people, this writer included, took a lot of convincing to venture out and see Tom Cruise in a hugely expensive sci-fi spectacular (notwithstanding the fact that Cruise has fine form in science fiction). The film in question, Edge Of Tomorrow, is directed by Doug Liman of The Bourne Identity, and based on a graphic novel with a cool title. So surely this should have been a movie which audiences were enthusiastically anticipating? Yet It didn’t seem that way, »

Movie Review: Edge of Tomorrow

6 June 2014 10:09 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The film Edge of Tomorrow is a sci-fi actioner that stacks up pretty well as a blockbuster. All the bells and whistles are there for your enjoyment – explosions, aliens, underdog hero who happens to be a human with a great smile, and Tom Cruise is on board too!

The film was directed by Doug Liman who directed The Bourne Identity (2002), Mr. And Mrs. Smith (2005), and Jumper (2008). He is used to getting pretty actors all roughed up and endangered. The screenwriters of Edge of Tomorrow are Christopher McQuarrie, Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth. McQuarrie wrote The Usual Suspects (1995) and two other Cruise vehicles: Valkyrie (2008) and Jack Reacher (2012). The Butterworth brothers have a handful of minor credits and both worked with Liman on Fair Game (2010). The original story is from All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.

The film opens with quick cuts of fictional BBC newscasts covering an alien invasion, »

The Smart Edge of Tomorrow Keeps Killing Its Star

3 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

In 1986, peaceniks were mad at Tom Cruise. That year, the Navy thanked Top Gun for boosting enlistment another 20,000 recruits. Since then, he's made more critiques of military than advertisements, most of which (Lions for Lambs, Born on the Fourth of July, The Last Samurai, Valkyrie) j'accuse bad leadership of wasting the lives of a few — or a million — good men.

With Edge of Tomorrow, Cruise comes full circle. He plays Lieutenant Colonel Bill Cage, a medaled propagandist who goes knock-kneed at the sight of a paper cut. In peacetime, he was an ad man who had dabbled in Rotc. Now that Earth is under siege from the Mimics, whirling space monsters that look like dreadlocked wigs dipped in steel, he's been drafted to serve »

25 May 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Today’s film is the 1988 short Lion’s Den. The film stars Brandon Keith, Dylan Kussman, and Ethan Hawke, and is co-directed by John Ottman and Bryan Singer, the latter of whom also wrote and acted in the short. Singer rose to prominence in 1995 with his second feature film The Usual Suspects, going on to helm the first two films of the X-Men franchise, as well as Superman Returns and Valkyrie. His newest feature, titled X-Men: Days of Future Past, which sees him return to the franchise, opened in wide release in American theatres this weekend.

‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Review: Bryan Singer Once Again Proves Himself Master of His Own Domain

22 May 2014 4:07 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

When we last left our mutant friends (in X-Men: First Class) they had just averted a third world war off the coast of Cuba, Professor X was paralyzed from the waist down and Magneto and his posse had teleported off to continue their fight against a fearful and prejudiced human species. X-Men: Days of Future Past picks up some years into the future as the end product of that war is revealed to be the impending extinction of mutants worldwide at the “hands” of giant, adaptive robots called Sentinels. X-Men old and new are dropping dead, and a last ditch plan is formulated to send Wolverine’s (Hugh Jackman) consciousness into the past to prevent an assassination widely regarded as the trigger behind the Sentinels’ creation. Director Bryan Singer has been on a bit of a bumpy road with his last few films, from the underwhelming Superman Returns to the under-appreciated Valkyrie to the joke that is »

Review: X-men: Days Of Future Past, Grim Yet Satisfactory

22 May 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

The makers of the latest installment of a superhero franchise based on comic book characters set themselves a tall order: a prequel that is also a sequel to more than one movie, as well as the middle installment of a projected trilogy. Grim yet satisfactory, X-Men: Days of Future Past occasionally groans under the weight of its own expectations. Like an upside-down pyramid, it's built upon the very narrow foundation of an exceedingly familiar trope, namely, 'Let's go back in time and kill Hitler.' As it happens, director Bryan Singer has already made that movie, albeit without the time-travel angle (2008's Valkyrie), and also established this particular superhero franchise in the first place, with X-Men and X-2. With those experiences under his belt, he steers...

Point/Counterpoint Review: 'Edge Of Tomorrow' Starring Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt And Bill Paxton

22 May 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Masks have always fascinated Tom Cruise. There are masks in "Minority Report," "Eyes Wide Shut," and "Vanilla Sky," and they serve a key purpose in all four "Mission: Impossible" movies (movies, it just so happens, that Cruise also produces). In films like "Interview with the Vampire," "Valkyrie" and "Tropic Thunder," Cruise transforms himself physically with the help of advanced prosthetics, to the point that these augmented bits become a part of him; he is the mask. It's very apparent that Tom Cruise is obsessed with the idea of being anyone but Tom Cruise. This idea reaches its logical zenith in his latest movie, the brilliant sci-fi extravaganza "Edge of Tomorrow," in which Cruise plays a man who dies on the battlefield and is instantly reborn. Every day, Cruise could be someone else. The fact that he chooses to be himself is what's really impressive. Tellingly, Cruise's character Major William Cage »
