Gambit May Be Eyeing A Rising Star For Its Female Lead

3 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Director Rupert Wyatt's Gambit movie may be in serious trouble now that it's been revealed that Channing Tatum could possibly leave the project. Whether or not he goes, however, the film will continue, and that means adding to the cast. Apparently while dealing with the Tatum situation, Fox is working to cast the movie's female lead, and it appears that Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol star Lea Seydoux is a candidate for the part. In The Wrap's report about Channing Tatum's deal with Fox falling apart, the trade offhandedly mentions that the film is currently working to find a female lead, and that French actress Lea Seydoux is one name that they are considering. Unfortunately, the report makes no mention of exactly what the part will be - but there have been a few clues. This past weekend, a casting call found its way online, and it detailed »

"Rogue Nation" Scores Rave First Reviews

24 July 2015 1:42 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The fifth film in the "Mission: Impossible" series, 'Rogue Nation,' had its world premiere in Vienna earlier this week ahead of a global launch late next week.

The series has had a rocky history though there's no question that the John Woo-directed second film is seen as an outright dud. Whether Brian DePalma's espionage-oriented first film or J.J. Abrams action-driven third film is better depends upon whom you talk to though both seem to be pretty close.

What is clear is that Brad Bird's fourth film, "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," was a winner both with audiences and critics - garnering good reviews and way more box-office than any of the previous entries, revitalising the brand.

The good news is reviews for 'Rogue Nation' so far indicate writer/director Christopher McQuarrie has continued the uptick in quality and has delivered something at least on par - »

22 July 2015 4:55 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Spectre trailer embraces Bond movies past: Who's lurking in the shadows?

Daniel Craig will make his 007 comeback later this year with the release of Spectre, a continuation of the story started in Sam Mendes's Skyfall. Craig has re-energised the Bond franchise since his debut in 2006's Casino Royale, and all signs point towards Spectre being another worthy addition to the series.

Digital Spy runs down everything you need to know about Spectre ahead of its cinema debut on October 23.

The new trailer is pretty spectacular

A helicopter doing a midair cork-screw, a tip of the hat to the On Her Majesty's Secret Service theme... and was that Blofeld? The latest trailer for Spectre is something of a corker and promises to be an homage-packed action-fest aiming to top Skyfall. Consider us excited.

Over 30 New 'Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation' Photos Plus Motorcycle Stunts Featurette, TV Spots, And More

21 July 2015 10:09 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Remember in 2006 when Viacom chairman Sumner Redstone was mad at Tom Cruise, called him “embarrassing” and basically canceled his production deal with Paramount? Things had gotten so bad for Cruise following his jumping the couch moment on Oprah that the studio was looking to hand off the “Mission: Impossible” series to another actor and hired Jeremy Renner to possibly take the mantle. Fast forward to 2011, when “Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol” was finally released, and all was forgiven. ‘Ghost Protocol’ becomes the highest grossing entry in the series by more than $100 million (nearly $700 million worldwide), and any plan for Ethan Hunt to retire became a distant memory.

'Tracking softly', and writing films off before release

19 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation is the latest film to be 'tracking softly'. But why are we so keen to lambast films we've not seen?

And so here we go again. We're two weeks away from the release of a blockbuster movie, and the dreaded term 'tracking softly' has reared its head. This time, it's apparently the upcoming Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation that's reportedly set for a lower than expected opening weekend when it arrives in cinemas at the end of July. Not withstanding the fact that very few people have seen the film yet (and early reactions from those that have are very positive), and that box office success is rarely determined by American takings only, it's still an indicative state of where we are with big movies right now.

Let's do the factual basics first though.

Get Ready For Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation With These Early Reactions & TV Spots

18 July 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's almost time to light the fuse as Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation is almost here!  The upcoming film is currently tracking for a $40-50M debut, which is less than what all three of the first three films did in their opening weekends, but higher than the $29.8M debut of the last installment, the Brad Bird-directed Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, which ended up with a final worldwide gross of over $694M. Many analysts predict Rogue Nation could ultimately perform better than Ghost Protocol, thanks to a strong word-of-mouth and a more powerful global box office. Also, with favorable critical reviews and no major big-budget releases in August, outside of Fox's Fantastic Four, an extended August-September run should help its cause, similiar to how it boosted Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy last summer. Earlier today, director Chris McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) went to Twitter to announce that his finishing »

"Rogue Nation" Tracking For Soft Opening

17 July 2015 8:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The long-running Tom Cruise franchise is going to have to push hard on the TV promotional front it would seem for its newest outing.

Two weeks out from release, tracking figures for Paramount's "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" indicate the action spy thriller is headed towards a roughly $40 million opening weekend. That's ahead of "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" which opened to $29.8 million, but behind the first three films in the series.

The big question is will the film have 'Ghost Protocol' style legs? Rave reviews from critics and audience polls meant that movie had staying power and ended up with nearly $210 million in the U.S. as part of a whopping $694.7 million haul around the world.

The hope is 'Rogue Nation', which should reap the benefit of the good will towards 'Ghost Protocol,' will do the same and overseas numbers could compensate for any shortfall States-side.

Watch Tom Cruise do the impossible in aeroplane stunt from M:i - Rogue Nation

14 July 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

One might think the clue is in the title, but Tom Cruise has done the damn near impossible for a stunt in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation.

Always keen to make footage as real as possible, which often means he puts himself through dangerous stunts, Cruise has this time allowed cameras to film him hanging off a plane during take off... eight times:

In the video, stunt co-ordinator Wade Eastwood said in a normal world he wouldn't want to "hang a multi-million-dollar star off the side of an aeroplane and fly around" but "Tom wanted to be on the outside of that plane".

And what Mr Cruise wants for the good of the movie, Mr Cruise gets.

Speaking about the stunt himself, Cruise said: "I couldn't sleep the night before - and then came the day and I was like, 'Ok, this is gonna happen'."

No New 'Star Wars: Force Awakens' Trailer Until Fall, Would You Pay to Watch It Todayc

6 July 2015 3:37 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Movies today are just as much about the trailers and marketing as they are the movies themselves. In fact, it makes me wonder if people would pay a dollar to see a trailer early if studios began offering it. To that point, how much would fans pay to watch a new trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens right now as opposed to waiting until this Fall, which is when it sounds like the next bit of marketing will arrive. I mention this because a report at Entertainment Weekly, discussing the fact Disney is bringing Star Wars: The Force Awakens to the fans this Friday at San Diego Comic Can, says the presentation will not include any new trailers, clips or footage, but instead "will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the highly secretive film, which was completely locked down to press during production."

Update Jeremy Renner's 'Mission: Impossible 5' Comments, Plus High Test Audience Scores

1 July 2015 4:55 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Update: Looking further into this, it seems while Jeremy Renner was filming Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation he was also going through a custody battle with his ex-wife, which appears to have been resolved in early April. This is the added source of tension the actor was up against while shooting both M:i 5 and Avengers: Age of Ultron, especially given how far away he was at the time of shooting. For more on the story click here. I typically stay away from this kind of personal stuff and wouldn't have written about his comments had I looked deeper from the start. For that I apologize. My original article follows. As far as the rest of Summer 2015 is concerned, the film I'm looking most forward to seeing is Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Paramount originally slated the film for a December release, but bumped it up to July 31. Whether that »

Jeremy Renner's 'Mission: Impossible 5' Comments Don't Exactly Inspire Confidence

1 July 2015 4:55 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As far as the rest of Summer 2015 is concerned, the film I'm looking most forward to seeing is Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Paramount originally slated the film for a December release, but bumped it up to July 31. Whether that was because they thought Terminator Genisys would be the stinker it turned out to be and were hoping for a true summer hit or whatever other reason they may had, I'm happy to see it a month early. I just hope they haven't sacrificed quality for release date, and if you're one to believe everything that comes out of a film producer's mouth (trust me, don't do that) then you'll believe they haven't sacrificed anything. Speaking with Collider, Skydance exec Dana Goldberg spoke of preview screenings for the film where it is testing higher than the very well received Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol: It is getting better and better with each episode. »

New Promo Photos Of The Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation Cast

30 June 2015 8:40 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In case you haven't heard, at a recent test screening, the Chris McQuarrie-directed Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation actually tested higher than the previous installment, the Brad Bird-directed Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. That's extremely high praise, especially considering that the previous film was universally acclaimed by both fans and critics. This is definitely good news for Paramount as it's starting to look more and more like they may have another huge home run on their hands when the highly anticipated Tom Cruise-starrer hits theaters July 31st! Check out five new character photos below with Cruise leading his Imf team that features Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, and Rebecca Ferguson!  Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate – an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the Imf.

What happened to the Suspiria remake?

25 June 2015 3:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Three years ago, a remake of Dario Argento's Suspiria seemed to be ready to go ahead. So what happened to it? Its former director explains.

Visually and aurally sumptuous, Dario Argento's Suspiria was one of the most striking horror movies of its age. The soundtrack was cacophonous, the cinematography drenched in colour and often beautiful - even when Argento was spattering the screen with claret.

In 2008, director David Gordon Green risked the ire of horror fans everywhere when he revealed to MTV that he planned to remake Argento's nightmare classic. It could have been a starry affair, too, with Natalie Portman on board as producer and star. That incarnation of the movie appeared to fall apart, though, and Portman ultimately went on to make Black Swan with Darren Aronofsky - a film about a ballet dancer with more than a touch of Argento's delirious brand of storytelling running through it. »

'Point Break' Remake Highlights a Problem with Today's Blockbuster Films & No, It's Not the Story

29 May 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The problem with the new Point Break remake has nothing to do with your inability to grow-up. It's doing nothing to your childhood unless you still identify with a man and his mullet. Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 original is still a great film for those of us that saw it when it was released and the fact it was remade into The Fast and The Furious ten years later and is now being remade just shy of 25 years after its original release simply means they're looking to bring a similar story to a new kind of audience, and I'm actually interested in the story they are aiming to tell. As was evident in the trailer and described in the film's plot synopsis, the gang of criminal rogues led by a man named Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez) are killing whoever may be in their way toward "liberating" the world's riches, sending the global economy into a tailspin. »

Watch: Pixar's Deleted Animated Scene from 'Tomorrowland'

26 May 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Brad Bird got his start in animation (he directed both The Iron Giant and The Incredibles), so it would be totally appropriate for him to include animation in his live-action work. Unfortunately, we never got to see a cartoon Tom Cruise running around in a special sequence of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. And also unfortunately, we won't get to see the animated sequence produced for his latest, Tomorrowland, as part of the movie. But we do at least get to see it online. Check it out below. This little animated short, created by the folks at Pixar, functions as a backstory prequel laying out some alternate history informing the plot of the feature, which is inspired by the same-named section of Disney's theme parks. Here we learn that Jules Verne, Thomas...
