Paula Patton is ditching the occasional supporting part in film for a leading role on TV. The "Precious" and "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" actress has signed on to "Runner," a drama that finds Patton's character thrown into the dangerous and highly masculine world of international arms deals. Lauren Marks (Patton) had believed her husband was dead, only to discover that he is not only alive and well, but also with a new woman who has stolen her identity. Lauren is then thrust into her former husband's criminal underworld, which is populated by Mexican cartels and unsavory characters from her past. "Runner" is based on the Turkish series "Son." Patton will next be seen in the 2016's "Warcraft," a fantasy-action movie based on the video game. [via Deadline]

In a summer full of juggernauts, Tom Cruise's Mission: Impossible 5, the follow-up to 2011's blockbuster Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, ranks amongst the biggest of the big, especially after the last film grossed over $694M at the box office. A few weeks ago, Paramount announced, in a welcome decision, that they had shifted the film's release up five months to July 31st in order to take full advantage of the IMAX possibilities in the late summer, similar to how Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy managed to dominate the previous summer. Earlier today, The Hollywood Reporter released a report claiming Paramount had shut down production on the highly anticipated sequel for a week or so in London because the film's ending had been deemed unsatisfactory. They also claimed that director Christopher McQuarrie had been given a little extra time to work out a new and improved finale alongside a mysterious unnamed writer friend, »
Disney has done a pretty good job of keeping the sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland under wraps. We've seen a teaser trailer and a Super Bowl spot, but we still haven't seen much from Brad Bird's summer sci-fi film, and most of the footage of the titular future city goes by so fast that we can't get a great look at it. But thankfully, three new images of Tomorrowland have appeared at the film's official website, and you can take a closer look at the city that still seems to be under construction. There's some gorgeous architecture here, cool vehicles, and clearly some things which don't have a clear function yet. Anyway, check out the photos! Here's the three new images from Tomorrowland from TakeMeToTomorrowland.com: You can still watch the teaser trailer for Brad Bird's Tomorrowland right here. Tomorrowland is directed by Brad Bird (of The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol »

Of all the trailers aired during last night's Super Bowl, there was one that stood apart, emphasizing the alluring power of mystery over more overtly showy moments. It was a spot that cast a spell over you, inviting you into its strange new world instead of trying to blow you back in your La-z-Boy with its sheer force of will. It was a spot for "Tomorrowland," a movie that has been shrouded in secrecy up until this point but is now, finally, being teased legitimately. Just know that if you'd rather stay in the dark for what the movie is about, then you should probably skip this piece -- just know that the final product is going to be absolutely spellbinding. We're sure of it.

A couple of brief status updates have arrived regarding several sequels to major franchises setup at Paramount Pictures.
First up, Platinum Dunes producers Andrew Form and Bradley Fuller have confirmed that the company's second reboot of the "Friday the 13th" franchise is still having its script tinkered with. Form tells Collider: "Just working on the script still. Hoping to make that movie this year and Brad, I'm gonna confirm that Jason is in the movie."
In the same interview, Form also offered a brief update on the sequel to last year's critically reviled but successful reboot of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" franchise. Plans to get the movie into cinemas by mid-2016 seem to still be in effect: “We’re in prep right now. We start shooting in New York in April."
Meanwhile, Paramount is still planning a fourth film in the popular "Beverly Hills Cop" franchise with the Michigan »

I had a hell of a time trying to figure out how to tackle a list of my most anticipated movies of 2015. I'm not going to take the time to count the number of sequels, remakes, spin-offs, reboots, parts two of two or re-imaginings that are hitting theaters this year because, quite frankly, it doesn't matter any more. Trying to figure out where a film like Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens fit into a list of most anticipated films that weren't anything like it was impossible. Even then, how much am I "anticipating" the new Star Wars film versus how curious am I to simply see how it will turn out now that it's out of the hands of George Lucas and into the hands of J.J. Abrams, whose last Star Trek film was a complete messc Therefore, I decided on two distinctions in film, the blockbusters and then everything else. »

Happy birthday, Jeremy Renner! The two-time Oscar-nominated actor and our beloved Hawkeye turns 44 on Wednesday, so we’re taking a trip back to the '90s when Renner was just 25 years old.
In 1996, Renner starred in a lesser-known murder mystery TV movie, A Nightmare Come True, where he played the son of a husband mistreating his wife until she disappears –all based on true events.
"It really doesn't surprise me that this is true," Renner told Et after reading the script. "I find out the true story and I'm like, you know what? I buy it. I don't doubt it. People are nuts. They're nuts."
Watch: Bradley Cooper Sports Long Blonde Locks in First 'Et' Interview
Rocking the signature male '90s uniform – a plaid button down shirt and long flowing hair -- Jeremy told us the challenges he faced while filming to ensure he doesn't give away the ending.
