How Jack Reacher 2 Will Separate Itself From The Mission: Impossible Movies

24 August 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Tom Cruise currently is riding high. After tepid reactions to such recent outputs as Rock of Ages, Oblivion and Jack Reacher, the action star once again has a bona fide hit with Mission: Impossible . Rogue Nation. You might assume that Ed Zwick, the director preparing to shoot Cruise.s Jack Reacher 2, would be looking at Christopher McQuarrie.s action-packed sequel and figuring what elements he can copy. Actually, the opposite is happening.   Zwick is doing press for his upcoming chess drama Pawn Sacrifice, and spoke to Collider about his plans for Jack Reacher 2, which he.ll begin filming later this year. Instead of borrowing from Mission: Impossible -- which made headlines by hanging Tom Cruise off the side of a moving airplane . Zwick explained how the Reacher movies have to be different, saying: It.s going to be very grounded. The emotions are grounded. The action is grounded. »

Will Smith To Replace Hugh Jackman In 'Collateral Beauty' With Rooney Mara

5 August 2015 7:21 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Whatever is in the script for "Collateral Beauty" penned by Allan Loeb ("The Dilemma," "Just Go With It," "Rock Of Ages," and "Here Comes The Boom"), it has attracted some big attention. Hugh Jackman was attached for a spell before he dropped out when his scheduling couldn't work, and then Johnny Depp was taking a peek for a moment. Now a big name has finally signed up to replace Jackman and star opposite Rooney Mara in the film. The usually quite picky Will Smith is putting his name down for the flick, reports Deadline. "Me And Earl And The Dying Girl" director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon will helm the tale that follows a New York City ad executive who slips into depression following a tragedy and embarks on an unconventional method to get out of his funk.

Rogue Nation looks to far east to maintain Cruise control at box office

5 August 2015 12:28 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In this week’s round-up of the global box-office scene:

• Superb Korean debut promises more international growth for Mission: Impossible

• Fox’s second John Green adaptation Paper Towns struggles to match The Fault in Our Stars

Ajay Devgn thriller Drishyam marks return to normality after mega-hits Baahubali and Bajrangi Bhaijaan

Tom Cruise’s box-office purchase has actually been on the wane this decade, with diminished openings and final grosses for his run of work from 2010’s Knight and Day through Rock of Ages and Jack Reacher, to two fairly strong sci-fi films in the shape of Oblivion and Edge of Tomorrow. The $56m (£36m) Us debut for the Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is a tonic for the Cruiser then, reaffirming his A-list status in his fourth decade of stardom: his third-biggest debut behind 2006’s War of the Worlds ($64m) and 2000’s Mission: Impossible II ($57.8m).

Box Office Sabermetrics: Tom Cruise’s Batting Average

5 August 2015 12:20 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Box Office Sabermetrics is a weekly column that will attempt to apply the statistical analysis Sabermetrics, used in Baseball, to the box office results each weekend.

One of my favorite books, and favorite movies of the decade, is Moneyball. Telling the story of how A’s General Manager Billy Beane and his front office used statistical analytics – called Sabermetrics – to put together a winning team off a low budget and undervalued players. I’ve always enjoyed that side of Baseball, how integral we evaluate statistics is to the sport, so I thought it was high time I brought it to how we evaluate movies. Given that film is a subjective medium, the only real hard statistic we have to evaluate is box office returns. So, each week I will be taking a look at the weekend numbers and seeing what Baseball statistics have to say about them.

Bret McKenzie, Michael Chabon Join Disney's 'Bob: The Musical', Starring Tom Cruise

29 July 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A couple years ago, my friend and I came up with the germ of an idea for a movie plot, centered on a man who -- after a near-fatal accident -- began to see life as one big giant musical and corresponded to this discovery accordingly, even when his perplexed local citizens couldn't understand his actions or point-of-view. Little did we know, though, a similar-minded movie was already in the works at Disney called Bob: The Musical. The in-the-works production focuses on an everyman who -- upon getting a nasty blow to the noggin -- starts to instantly hear the songs inside everyone's hearts as his life is turned into a musical. Mild jealously aside, I'm very curious to see what is cooked up here if it actually comes into fruition, which is looking more-and-more likely. Earlier this year, Tom Cruise joined the film to play the titular character, with »

Michael Chabon Writing Disney’s Bob The Musical

28 July 2015 7:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Disney’s long-gestating musical comedy Bob the Musical, in which The Artist helmer Michel Hazanavicius may direct Tom Cruise, will be written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon, The Hollywood Reporter revealed last night. Additionally, Bret McKenzie, who won an Oscar for “Man or Muppet” from The Muppets has been enlisted to write songs for the pic.

Bob the Musical centers on a regular guy who suffers a head injury after which he is able to hear the heart songs of everyone around him – much to his confusion and dismay. It’s been in development for more than a decade but recently got a shot in the arm when Hazanavicius, searching for a mainstream project to tackle in the wake of 2011 Best Picture winner The Artist, got involved.

As for Cruise, he’s still circling the lead role but has not signed on yet. The actor has flourished in musical »

Def Leppard Guitarist Vivian Campbell Slams Donald Trump as a "Clown"

21 July 2015 1:58 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Although Donald Trump might not have the long flowing hair required to be a rock star, he is set to share the stage with and introduce '80s hair metal band Def Leppard on Aug. 15 at the Iowa State Fair.  But not if guitar player Vivian Campbell has anything to say about it! The axe-shredder isn't pouring any sugar on a brutally honest Facebook post directed at the presidential hopeful, "I really, really, really hope that there's no truth to this rumour. Def Leppard have never been a political band, and if we were, I for one wouldn't be associating my name with this clown." The "Rock of Ages" guitarist isn't the first musician to slam the »

Cruise Classic: Jerry Maguire

17 July 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Regular readers of the site will know that earlier this year we ran a series looking at the classic films of Keanu Reeves. This was to co-inside with the release of the fantastic John Wick; now we turn our attention to another big name from the nineties, Tom Cruise. Each week from now until the release of the highly anticipated fifth Mission Impossible film, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, we’ll be taking an in-depth look at the films that we feel are his classics.

Tom Cruise has had an extensive and wide-ranging career. Granted, he is most closely associated with films like last week’s subject Top Gun and the aforementioned Mission Impossible franchise, but he’s done much more than that. Some of his earlier years had him star in Ridley Scott’s Legend as well as the romantic period film Far and Away, one of the three films »

Goodbye Hugh Jackman, Hello Johnny Depp (Maybe) For 'Collateral Beauty'

15 July 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Although Hugh Jackman will soon say goodbye to Wolverine with X-Men: Apocalypse and James Mangold's upcoming Wolverine sequel, in the process of putting away the claws the actor has to give away some other roles in the meantime. That would include the lead role in Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's much talked-about Me & Earl & the Dying Girl follow-up Collateral Beauty, also starring Rooney Mara. It was only last month when the Aussie actor signed onto the project, but time commitments apparently won't let Jackman play the role when production begins this fall. Producers don't seem too discouraged, though, for they've taken their efforts towards bagging another big-name star: Johnny Depp. Even if the Mortdecai's star seems to be fading these days, Depp does have the buzzed Black Mass coming up, in addition to another Pirates of the Caribbean sequel set for release in two years time. So don't rule out a comeback, »

15 July 2015 10:12 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Maybe this is the reason why Hugh Jackman is finally ready to lose Wolverine's mutton chops —playing the marquee X-Man gets in the way of other projects. The actor's about to start shooting "The Wolverine 3" soon, which has seen him removed from starring in the developing "Collateral Beauty" co-starring Rooney Mara and set to be helmed by "Me And Earl And The Dying Girl" director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon. But another big name might step in.

Relativity Selling ‘Out Of This World’ to Stx Entertainment (Exclusive)

13 July 2015 12:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Stx Entertainment is in negotiations to buy “Out of This World” from the embattled Relativity Studios.

A deal has not yet closed, but an agreement to allow rights to the project to migrate from one studio to another is expected to be reached soon. “Out of This World” is described as a “Romeo & Juliet” story that centers on the first human born on Mars, who is secretly raised on the planet after his astronaut mother dies during childbirth. As a teen, he strikes up an online romance with a girl from Colorado, prompting him to travel across the solar system to meet her, all the while pursued by Nasa.

The pact comes as Relativity is scrambling to reach an agreement with its creditors on tens of millions of dollars in debt payments. If a deal is not reached and its lenders do not allow the company to have an extension, »

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »
