Star Trek Into Darkness is off and running in theaters right now and up to $164.6 million worldwide. Last week, as the North American publicity tour wound down co-stars Simon Pegg, John Cho and Alice Eve ventured into Seattle where I had a chance to sit down with Scotty, Sulu and Carol Marcus to discuss the film, their aspiration, their reactions upon learning their director was also going to direct Star Wars: Episode VII and also ask where do all the dogs go in the future? The mood was light and festive as you'll quickly see... Do you have to get into shape for Star Trek? Are the suits form-fitting? Simon Pegg (Sp): Nah, I like to live my life like an international rock star. No, um, I was in quite good shape already because I came off shooting Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. These guys are always in great shape, »

Earlier this week it was revealed that Pixar has at least one other sequel in development beyond 2015's Finding Nemo follow-up Finding Dory; while Toy Story 4 must surely be at the top of any list, it wouldn't be too much of a surprise to see the Disney-owned animation studio attempting to capitalise on the current superhero boom with a sequel to 2004's smash hit The Incredibles. However, judging by comments from director Brad Bird it seems we can probably scratch The Incredibles 2 from the list of possibilities for the time being, although the two-time Oscar winner has revealed that he's certainly open to continuing the adventures of the superhero family.
"I have been thinking about [The Incredibles 2]. People think that I have not been, but I have," said Bird in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "Because I love those characters and love that world. I am stroking my chin and scratching my head. »

The opening scene in "Up"; Tom Cruise's heart-stopping climb up the Burj Khalifa in "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol"; "Not Penny's boat." Some of the most memorable pop culture moments from the last decade have one thing in common: musical accompaniment written by Michael Giacchino.
"The stuff I work on tends to be big things like Pixar movies or franchises," Giacchino, 45, told HuffPost Entertainment. "It's kind of fun to be a part of this world, working on movies that I would have loved when I was a kid."
One of those movies is this week's "Star Trek Into Darkness." It's the second time Giacchino has boldly gone into space with the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and the fourth film collaboration between himself and director J.J. Abrams.
"When we first met we became very fast friends because we had a very similar background with regard to our love of filmmaking, »

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the fifth and final one announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on The CW.
After targeting teen girls for so long, The CW has widened their demographic focus and in the process have improved their fortunes with three of their five new shows from last year returning. One in particular, "Arrow," has been a big hit for them. As a result this year's line-up sticks heavily with genre fare - sci-fi, supernatural, and even a period piece.
The network's troubled "Nikita" has scored a six episode third season order to wrap up its story lines, no word on when those episodes will air just yet. In fact, specific premiere dates for all their shows have yet to be set.

The Incredibles is easily my favorite animated Pixar film, and since it was made, I have wanted to see a sequel. The movie was directed by Brad Bird who went on to direct Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol and is currently developing Tomorrowland for Disney. During a recent interview with THR, Bird was asked what the chances were of us seeing a sequel to The Incredibles, and this was his reply:
I have been thinking about it. People think that I have not been, but I have. Because I love those characters and love that world. I am stroking my chin and scratching my head. I have many, many elements that I think would work really well in another [Incredibles] film, and if I can get ‘em to click all together, I would probably wanna do that.
I like the idea of moving a little more quickly in films. I’m »

Anytime Pixar announces a new project an audible sigh escapes from fans when it's not for a sequel to The Incredibles, which is often considered the best of the studio's work and most deserving of another entry. Director Brad Bird has been hounded about the status of continuing the adventures of Mr. Incredible and his super-powered family ever since and in a recent Q&A with THR, Bird confessed that it is certainly on his mind. The Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol director also let »

Paramount has tapped Iron Man 3 screenwriter Drew Pearce (No Heroics) to write the fifth installment of the Mission Impossible franchise.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that Paramount Pictures was moving forward with "Mission: Impossible 5" and that Tom Cruise signed on to reprise his Ethan Hunt role. Now comes word that the studio just hired "Iron Man 3" co-writer Drew Pearce to write the script for the fifth "Mission: Impossible" installment. Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) is in talks to direct. "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" hit theaters in 2011 and went on to gross almost $700 million worldwide, which is much higher than all other installments in the franchise. It also has an impressive 93% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. »
Details of the proposed plot are currently being kept under wraps.
Cruise signed a deal last week to reprise his role as Ethan Hunt in a fifth Mission: Impossible movie.
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol - the fourth movie in the action series - has grossed almost $700 million (£450 million) worldwide since opening in December 2011.

There’s a thing that makes me very sad about Star Trek Into Darkness. Clearly, it’s not the perfect geek storm of an opening gambit that evokes not only the old-school boldly-going adventures of the crew of the starship Enterprise but also -- hilariously -- Raiders of the Lost Ark. Yeah, in a Star Trek movie. Tee-hee! Obviously, it’s not how Zachary Quinto (What's Your Number?, Margin Call) somehow manages to make Spock more plausibly divided in his half-human, half-Vulcan skin than Leonard Nimoy ever did, with the judicious use of under-the-radar snark and a face that gets more expressive the stiller he becomes. Just as obviously, it’s not the sheer joy that Simon Pegg (Ice Age: Continental Drift, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) exudes in every nanosecond that he gets to be Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott. In a Star Trek movie. Somehow, he shares his dork-dream-come-true with all of us. »

Not that this should come to as a surprise to anyone, but Tom Cruise wants to keep making movies. And his best bet right now is a little franchise enjoying a strong second wind called "Mission: Impossible." Since the fourth movie in the series, "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," took over the world to the tune of $700 million, a fifth movie was inevitable. Now, according to Deadline, we can change "inevitable" to "happening."
Cruise has officially signed deals with Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions to star in and produce a fifth "Mission: Impossible" movie. J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot will once again develop the movie with Cruise and a yet-to-be-named director.

This won't come as much of a surprise considering the previous instalment Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol pulled in almost $700 million at the global box office (a record for the star), but Deadline has revealed that actor Tom Cruise has signed on to reprise the role of super spy Ethan Hunt for a fifth entry in the Mission: Impossible series.
In addition to starring, The Cruiser will once again serve as producer on Mission: Impossible 5, and while no official announcement has been made about a director, it's thought that Cruise could reunite with Jack Reacher helmer Christopher McQuarrie, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter behind The Usual Suspects and the upcoming X-Men solo sequel The Wolverine.

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol was a pretty damn good film, and many would argue it's the best the series has delivered so far. Because of that, it's no surprise that the movie studios would be anxious to get to work on a sequel. Now it looks like things are really moving forward, as according to Deadline, Tom Cruise has just signed on to reprise his role and produce the film.
No screenwriter or director has been named, but word has it that Christopher McQuarrie who directed Cruise in Jack Reacher, is being circled for the directing spot. Regardless of who's taking the helm, they've got their work cut out for them. It's not easy to keep »

Tom Cruise will gear up for another impossible mission. Today the Oblivion star sealed a deal with Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions to produce and star in Mission: Impossible 5, the sequel to Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.
According to Deadline, the deal between Cruise and Paramount/Skydance is done. Though Cruise is on board, there's no director or writer set, and no timetable for when Paramount hopes to deliver the film into cinemas. Whoever steps in to write and/or direct will work directly with Cruise and Bad Robot to develop the story.
Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol was a huge hit for the studio and Cruise. With Brad Bird behind the camera and Cruise dangling off the Burj Khalifa on giant IMAX screens, the fourth M:i film earned $209.4 million domestically and a huge $694.7 million worldwide off a budget of $145 million. It's no wonder Paramount and Skydance were quick »

In a surprise to pretty much nobody, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have put the wheels firmly in motion for a new Mission: Impossible film. The last movie in the franchise, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, raked in just shy of $700m at the global box office, making it the most successful to date at the box office. As such, a deal has now been done that will see Tom Cruise reprising the role of Ethan Hunt, and also producing once again.
At one stage, you may recall, it wasn't going to be like this. Off the back of the commercial disappointment of Knight And Day, the fourth Mission: Impossible film was apparently retooled so that it was less of a leading man vehicle for Tom Cruise. »
"Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" hit theaters in 2011 and went on to gross almost $700 million worldwide, which is much higher than the three previous installments and $300 million more than the last film. Plus, "Ghost Protocol" has an impressive 93% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. This is why it's not surprising that Paramount Pictures is moving forward with a fifth installment. While very little is known about the new film, Deadline has learned that Tom Cruise just signed on to reprise the role of Ethan Hunt. "Ghost Protocol" was directed by Brad Bird, who is now busy with Disney's "Tomorrowland." It's believed that Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) will be offered the job. Stay tuned. »
