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. »

93 movie remakes and reboots currently in the works

19 August 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Craft and The Birds to The Fugitive and She's All That, the many film reboots and remakes currently in the works...

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.

Without further ado, here's what's coming up...

Akira

One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

Jack Reacher Sequel To Start Shooting In November

12 August 2015 5:06 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Jack Reacher, like Oblivion and Edge of Tomorrow, didn't quite do the business expected of its megastar headliner Tom Cruise. A sequel, despite the obvious franchise potential of the multiple Lee Child source novels, wasn't a foregone conclusion, although rumblings began in May that it was starting to look possible, with Ed Zwick in the director's chair. Now, with the success of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation reassuring everyone that Cruise's mojo is still intact, studio Paramount are pushing ahead, with shooting on Jack Reacher 2 earmarked for November this year, for a release in late 2016.Paramount are also keen to keep on striking while the Mission: Impossible iron is hot, with THR reporting that the studio want the sixth instalment shooting next summer, for a June or July release in 2017. Back when Jack Reacher 2 was first mooted, the plan looked to be an adaptation of 2013's Never Go Back, »

Tom Cruise, actor, filmmaker and professional stunt man

10 August 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Tom Cruise has come a very long way since his screen debut in Franc Zeffirelli’s Endless Love (1981). Thirty six movies and a whole lot of stardom later and he’s still the biggest movie star on the planet. He is perhaps, also the biggest film star in movie history. You’d be hard pushed to offer up any other actor that’s sustained that level of popularity and box office pull for that long. There is a good reason for this too. Cruise polarises opinion of course and there are those that would see his downfall, but in large part that’s due to all things that have little if nothing to do with Tom Cruise the filmmaker.

Being Tom Cruise must take a special kind of energy. So special in fact that he has sustained that level of dash for nigh on thirty years without letting up. And if Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, »

Why Tom Cruise’s ‘Mission: Impossible’ Scored While Other Starry Summer Movies Flopped

9 August 2015 6:02 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Who says A-list movie stars don’t matter at the box office anymore? This weekend, Tom Cruise’s “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” withstood a challenge from “Fantastic Four” and ruled the worldwide box office for the second straight week, taking in $29 million domestically and adding another $65.5 million overseas. That lifts its total grosses to $109 million domestic, $157 million overseas. “Rogue Nation”s’ performance bucks a trend that has emerged in recent years as superhero sagas and high-concept franchises dominate the list of top-grossing films, while movies with well-known stars have struggled. Cruise’s last three action vehicles — “Jack Reacher,” “Oblivion” and “Edge. »

Stellaris: "grand strategy" game announced, first trailer

7 August 2015 1:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paradox has announced the sci-fi "grand strategy" game, Stellaris. Here's the first trailer and details...

If "never judge a videogame by its trailer" isn't an aphorism already, it should be. But we can't help getting a little bit excited about the prospect of Stellaris, a new strategy game from Paradox - the studio behind such beard-stroking tactical games as Europa Universalis and Crusader Kings. 

Announced at Gamescom, Sellaris is described as "grand strategy on a universal stage." The reveal trailer below points to its mind-expanding scope, its hazy space visuals recalling the eerie vistas of Prometheus and the electronic music sounding a bit like M83's score for the 2013 film, Oblivion.

There's more to Stellaris than just style, though. The game will take place among huge, procedurally-generated star systems, where you'll encounter "an incredible number of random species" - all of whom can become your allies or your opponents, depending »

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.

Tom Cruise: A Retrospective

1 August 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Anyone growing into pop culture consciousness during the mid-2000s will be familiar with a certain type of Tom Cruise, one labeled with some criticism in a recent Buzzfeed article as “Tom Cruise 2.0.” To them, Tom Cruise may have first become familiar as Ethan Hunt in the first Mission: Impossible movie, as an action star who, in spite of fearful insurance agents and publicists, prefers to do his own stunts—especially if they include declaring maniacal love for Katie Holmes atop Oprah Winfrey’s couch. He was probably their first introduction to the alien world of Scientology, or perhaps already known as the face of another hero thrust into the supernatural, having once served as the model for the titular character in Disney’s Aladdin.

This Tom Cruise, in spite of several critical successes in the past 10 years, has yet to shake completely the straws of tabloid fodder that prick up every time someone dares, »

Box Office: Tom Cruise’s ‘Mission: Impossible’ Flying to $50 Million Weekend

31 July 2015 1:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tom Cruise has been welcomed back to the nation’s multiplexes, with “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” heading for a U.S. opening weekend that could top $50 million, according to early estimates Friday.

That could be four times as much as that for the rebooted “Vacation,” which is underperforming with a projected Friday-Sunday total of $12.5 million and a disappointing five-day cume ar0und $19 million.

Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” is dominating Friday business, with a first-day total of at least $20 million at 3,956 locations. That figure includes $4 million from Thursday-night preview showings.

Paramount’s fifth entry in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise has launched amid a marketing campaign with Cruise — one of the best promoters in the business — hitting the circuit to discuss the film and its eye-popping stunts, such as his clinging to the side of an Airbus A400 plane during takeoff.

The studio has been cautious in its guidance for the action-adventure, »

Box Office: ‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’ Makes a Bang With $4 Million on Thursday

31 July 2015 7:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tom Cruise has arrived back in theaters with a bang, with “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” reeling in $4 million on Thursday night.

The preview showings began at 8 p.m. at 2,764 locations. The gross is comparable to “Mad Max,” which earned $3.7 million in evening shows; “World War’s” $3.6 million; and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'” $4.1 million.

Paramount’s fifth “Mission: Impossible” expands to 3,956 locations on Friday. The studio’s extensive marketing campaign has centered on the 53-year-old Cruise clinging to the side of an Airbus A400 plane during takeoff.

The action adventure, which carries a hefty $150 million budget, is on pace to open to $40 million over the weekend. Some analysts think that number could rise to $50 million, given the strong critical support for the film.

Tom Cruise Has an Idea for an 'Edge of Tomorrow' Sequel... 'Edge of 2morrow... Again'c

29 July 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tom Cruise can do no wrong, in my opinion. I was listening to a Grantland podcast episode recorded as part of the site's Tom Cruise Week coverage, and the Grantland team was talking about Cruise as Hollywood's "most effortful" action star. Now that I know effortful is an actual word in the English language, I think it perfectly captures what I like about Cruise. He tries. He tries hard. If a Cruise movie is going to fail -- and these days, if they don't carry the Mission: Impossible brand name, they often do -- it won't be for the star's lack of trying. For instance, I didn't care for Oblivion, but I liked what Cruise was going for and I liked that he was pushing to make something interesting. Cruise is well-known for his impressive stunt work, sitting atop and dangling from the world's tallest building in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, »

Box Office: ‘Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation’ Tries to Prove Tom Cruise Still a Top Gun

28 July 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tom Cruise is risking life and limb in “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” to prove he’s still one of Hollywood’s biggest stars.

In the fifth installment of the two-decade-old series, Cruise clings to the side of an Airbus A400 plane during takeoff, holds his breath under water for six minutes, and rappels down the side of the Vienna Opera House. For part six, he’ll likely have to strap himself to the undercarriage of a ballistic missile and go soaring across the Pyongyang skyline if he wants to top himself.

Despite his willingness to risk doing some damage to that beautiful barrel chest, “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” may struggle to bring in crowds. The action adventure is on pace to open to $40 million, a soft opening considering the franchise’s long history and its hefty $150 million pricetag.

“It seems low to me,” said Eric Handler, an analyst with Mkm Partners. »

All hail Tom Cruise and the era of the equal opportunity action movie

28 July 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A new wave of women are holding their own with men on the big screen, and the Mission Impossible actor is willing to share the spotlight

Tom Cruise may ... ahem ... get the odd bit of bad press, but he remains Hollywood’s most dependable action hero. There’s been the odd clanger (Oblivion, Knight and Day) in recent times, but the couch-jumping poster boy for Scientology has been on a hot streak of late with last year’s alien invasion romp Edge of Tomorrow and the new Mission: Impossible movie – Rogue Nation, right up there with the best.

Film Review: ‘Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation’

24 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The theme that runs like a quick-burning fuse through “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” is the tricky relationship between inevitability and chance — or luck, rather, as signaled by the brief appearance of a rabbit’s foot in one of Tom Cruise’s more brutal action sequences. It’s a dynamic that applies to the film as well: If the robust commercial performance of 2011’s “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” made a follow-up inevitable, then luck turns out to be very much on the side of this unusually spry and satisfying fifth entry, which finds the surviving members of the Impossible Missions Force trying to neutralize an insidious global threat, while struggling to convince their skeptical overlords that there is such a threat to begin with. The result is an existential quandary that writer-director Christopher McQuarrie negotiates with characteristic cleverness and a sly respect for the sheer durability of genre; at once questioning »

Cruise Classic: Minority Report

24 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. This week’s pick is Minority Report.

Minority Report takes place in 2054 where all crime is predicted and controlled by the PreCrime task force. Trouble brews when one of their best agents, Anderton, finds his name on this list and gets hunted down before he can commit the pre-destined murder.

The film directed by Steven Spielberg is based on novel ‘The Minority Report’ by Philip K Dick. »

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation review

24 July 2015 3:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tom Cruise returns as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Here's Ryan's review of a brisk action thriller...

Dougray Scott's villain perfectly summed up Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible 2. "Hunt invariably favours misdirection over confrontation," Scott's preening bad guy tells an assembly of goons. "He'll no doubt engage in some acrobatic insanity before he'll risk harming a hair on a security guard's head."

This is Tom Cruise's Impossible Missions Force agent Hunt in a nutshell: a romantic daredevil who seems to actively enjoy throwing himself off tall buildings. After nearly 20 years, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Cruise might have grown weary of his thrill-seeking alter-ego. But here he is in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (film number five), clinging to the sides of planes, making leaps from high places and hurtling around on motorbikes.

This time, Hunt comes up against the Syndicate, a shadowy »

16 July 2015 8:47 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The Water Diviner starring Russell Crowe is loosely based on a true World War I story where an Australian farmer journeyed to Turkey in order to locate the bodies of his three sons that were presumed killed in the battle of Gallpoli. Though the film takes great liberties with the character's journey and outcome, but touches upon the pain and grief this man and his wife must have felt knowing all of their sons were lost and mostly likely dead in a far off land. The film also marks Crowe's directorial debut.

Warner Home Video is bringing The Water Diviner to Blu-ray. DVD and Digital HD on July 28, 2015. We've teamed up with Warner to offer three lucky readers each a copy of The Water Diviner Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD combo pack in this contest.

The Extreme Lengths Jj Abrams Went To Connect The Force Awakens To The Original Star Wars Trilogy

14 July 2015 12:09 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

This December, when J.J. Abrams. Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally hits theaters, it will continue the narrative of the original trilogy. With the big three stars, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher, as well as others returning, there is an obvious continuity, but Abrams went to even greater lengths to connect The Force Awakens to the original trilogy. Talking to Thompson on Hollywood at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, production designer Darren Gilford (Oblivion) discussed how they used old school special effects at every opportunity, trying to replicate the way George Lucas did things on the first film back in 1977. He said: J.J.'s mandate from day one was authenticity and being as true to the original trilogy as possible. And he felt the prequels were flawed by the fact that they had every [CG] tool known to mankind and used everything at their disposal. »
