Ever since Marvel announced their massive Phase Three slate back in October, there has been plenty of speculation about who will play Captain Marvel. A number of actresses have been rumored for the role, such as Vikings star Katheryn Winnick, Jessica Chastain, Katee Sackhoff and Emily Blunt. As of now, the project doesn't even have a director attached yet, but Marvel did bring on Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) to write the script. Today, a new rumor surfaced from Meet the Movie Press, that claims Emily Blunt has in fact signed on as Captain Marvel.
This hasn't been confirmed yet, but Heroic Hollywood's El Mayimbe believes that Marvel is "aiming higher" for the role of Carol Danvers. Back in April, a report surfaced that the studio wanted Charlize Theron to star as Captain Marvel, with Angelina Jolie eyed to direct. The report was never confirmed, »
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, »

Just when Tom Cruise had been written off as an action star, he makes a triumphant comeback — at age 53 — with “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation.” The summer’s most entertaining popcorn movie not only eclipses “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Jurassic World” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” with its action sequences, it also brings to mind Cruise’s prime days (“Top Gun,” “Jerry Maguire,” etc.) on the Hollywood A-list.
Here are five reasons “Mission: Impossible 5” is the strongest film in Paramount’s 19-year-old spy franchise.
(1)It’s sleeker than any James Bond movie you can remember.
The first “Mission: Impossible,” which opened nearly two decades ago in 1996, was a standard bigscreen reboot of a TV show. But the franchise received a jolt in 2006 with J.J. Abrams’ “Mission Impossible 3,” which interwove the heart-pumping twists of “Alias” (season one) into a theatrical recipe that could give Daniel Craig as 007 a run for his money. »

Tom Cruise isn't quite the box office king he was back in 1996 when the first Mission Impossible hit theaters, yet the franchise is still surprisingly strong and the fifth movie in the series is poised to open pretty big this weekend. It's also scored surprisingly strong reviews with a 92 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. (Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief has a 93 percent rating.)

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation has hit cinema screens, with Tom Cruise's death-defying stunts wowing audiences.
Speaking to USA Today, Pegg said: "When the posters came out, it was me in a jacket, Tom in a jacket, Jeremy in a jacket, Ving [Rhames] in a jacket and Rebecca in leather with her [butt] sticking out. It was like, 'No, don't do that'.
"We're doing something good here. Trying to, at least."
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation has generally won over the critics, although Digital Spy complained about too many stunts, not enough story.

Last year, Tom Cruise starred in Edge of Tomorrow as a smarmy Us Army deserter caught in a time loop that keeps bringing him back to the previous morning after he is repeatedly killed by alien invaders. A cross between War of the Worlds and Groundhog Day, Doug Liman’s futuristic fantasy featured one of the 53-year-old’s smartest, most layered performances in a filmography spanning more than three decades. Many critics could not resist drawing parallels with Cruise’s own bumpy career, which time and time again has seemed to be on the verge of crashing, yet keeps bouncing back

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.

Chicago – The sensational summer movie season of 2015 still has some pulse pounding tricks up its sleeve, and “Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation” fulfills that sensation with a wham-bam bag of spy games. Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner are back, joined by femme kick-ass Rebecca Ferguson.
Another advantage in this 5th chapter of the “Mission” series is Christopher McQuarrie (“Edge of Tomorrow”) who conceived the story, wrote the screenplay and directed the film. That kind of creative control is evident in each frame, as the confrontations, escapes, capers and chase scenes are all brilliantly refreshed. There are homages to other thrillers (including a direct Alfred Hitchcock Man-Who-Knew-Too-Much reference), a deeply desperate villain and virtually everything on the line. Also impressive is their decision to not necessarily have a “love interest” for Cruise’s Ethan Hunt, but have the female counterpart as an equal partner as a spy, whose »

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, 2015.
Directed by Christopher McQuarrie.
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.
Yes, that’s Tom Cruise running on the wing of a cargo plane as it speeds down a runway. Yes, that’s still Cruise hanging from the side of the plane as it’s taking off. And yes, that’s our Tom hanging on the plane at 5000 feet. Why? Simple – because Cruise commits. Cruise delivers. Cruise knows what we want and knows how to get the best from everyone he works with to ensure we get it. He only works with the best, because only the best is good enough. Far too often we have to settle »

Big of budget but disappointing of box office, Edge Of Tomorrow seems an unlikely candidate for a sequel, even in these franchise-happy times. Tom Cruise, however, is still chewing over ways and means of making it happen. Talking to MTV News at the premiere of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, he hinted that the property may yet live again.“I pitched it to [Christopher] McQuarrie and Doug [Liman]," he revealed of his idea for a sequel. "We were there one night and I was like, 'I’ve got an idea for it'."McQuarrie, of course, is Cruise's screenwriter of choice and the man who adapted the Manga property All You Need Is Kill into a pulsing, pacy sci-fi actioner in which Cruise and Emily Blunt tooled up to tackle a species of grabastic extra-terrestrial killing machines. Liman directed the movie and is reconnecting with his star for crime biopic Mena.Should it come to pass, »

"Jimmy's business is Jimmy's business..." Warner Bros has debuted one more official theatrical trailer for Scott Cooper's Black Mass drama, starring Johnny Depp as the notorious gangster Whitey Bulger. We've seen plenty of trailers for this already, so we all should know what to expect at this point, but they keep revealing more and more. This time there's a focus on Depp as Bulger, and lots of the action around his character, and he looks so damn good. And crazy. The big cast includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Corey Stoll, Juno Temple, Dakota Johnson, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon and Adam Scott. I actually really dig the pacing and the intensity of this trailer, thanks to the song "Till It's Gone" by Yelawolf. Enjoy! Here's the second full trailer for Scott Cooper's Black Mass, direct from Warner Bros: Black Mass is directed by Scott Cooper (Out of the Furnace, Crazy Heart »

This Time, It’s Rogue: Cruise Continues Singing It Forever Just Because
Arriving nearly four years after the highly celebrated and significantly lauded fourth Mission Impossible installment, 2011’s Brad Bird directed Ghost Protocol, Tom Cruise and company are back, perhaps nervously expecting to pale in comparison to what remains a difficult act to follow. Though an element of surprise is lacking, it’s safe to say Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is an energetic action comedy manufactured with the utmost attention to detail in its remarkable action sequences. Helmed by favored Tom Cruise scribe Christopher McQuarrie (who wrote Valkyrie, Edge of Tomorrow, directed Jack Reacher, and did uncredited revisions on the last Mi film), the whole endeavor feels like a snug outfit for its headlining celebrity.
- Nicholas Bell
McQuarrie had previously worked with Mi star Tom Cruise on Jack Reacher (which he wrote and directed) and co-wrote the screenplays for Bryan Singer's Valkyrie and the sci-fi hit Edge of Tomorrow. With Rogue Nation, McQuarrie follow in the footsteps of previous directors Brian DePalma, John Woo, J.J. Abrams and Brad Bird. With the Imf now disbanded and Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) out in the cold, a new threat -- called the Syndicate -- soon emerges. The Syndicate is a network of highly skilled operatives who are dedicated to establishing a new world order via an escalating series of terrorist attacks. Faced with what may be the most impossible mission yet, Ethan gathers his team and joins forces with Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), a disavowed British agent who may or may not be a member of this deadly rogue nation.

Rumours began to surface a few months ago that a sixth instalment in the Mission: Impossible series was already in development and now star Tom Cruise has confirmed during an interview with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show that Mi:6 is definitely going to happen.
During the interview Cruise said: “We’re starting to work on it now…we’ll probably start shooting next summer.”
Cruise was reluctant to give up any more juicy details and it’s difficult to determine from his comments just how far along in development the sixth movie is but considering Cruise is also a co-producer, it sounds like they’re only in the first-draft scripting phase. It’s also likely that Christopher McQuarrie is returning to write the script.
Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is set to open in theatres today and early reviews have been quite positive. Although plot details for the sixth movie have yet to be revealed, »

McQuarrie and Liman were both involved in the original film.
Cruise added that he was desperate to have Emily Blunt involved as well.
"I pitched it to McQuarrie and Doug," he told MTV News. "We were there one night, and I was like, 'I've got an idea for it'.
"It could be so much fun. Gotta get Emily. I was like, 'Emily, please'. She was like, 'Give me another year, please'."

Tom Cruise is out and about doing the global press tour for the awesome Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, which is in cinemas from today, and during an interview on The Daily Show, the actor revealed that Mission Impossible 6 is already in pre-production.
Cruise revealed: “We’re starting to work on it now. We’ll probably start shooting it next summer.”
That’s heading for a 2017 if this is the case then? The fifth movie is currently playing to global audiences with really good reviews, and could re-ignite the franchise for Paramount, who’ll probably be waiting for the weekend numbers to come in before they commit to any more movies. They’ve said nothing on any future films so far.
In other news, Cruise conducted an interview with MTV where »

(Spoiler Warning: The following interview reveals tons of plot details about scenes in "Rogue Nation." So if you haven't seen the movie yet, well, fix that, then read the rest of the article.)
Stealing the Noc List. Jousting with a motorcycle. Climbing the world's tallest building.
Unlike most recent Hollywood franchises, the "Mission" films commit to shooting the action set pieces in camera, with a minimal assist from CG. The fifth film, "Rogue Nation," is no exception.
Writer-director Christopher McQuarrie, in concert with his star, has effortlessly delivered not one, but two, big showstoppers that instantly rank among the franchise's most iconic moments. Moviefone recently sat down with McQuarrie for an exclusive interview, and fans »

As Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation makes its way into cinemas, Tom Cruise has attended the New York premiere for the movie, as part of his publicity duties for it. And chatting to MTV at said premiere, the question of last year's Edge Of Tomorrow came up. Specifically: is there a possibility of a sequel?
Turns out there is.
"I pitched it to [Christopher] McQuarrie and Doug [Liman]", he said, referring to the writer and director of the movie. "We were there one night and I was like, I've got an idea for it". Naturally enough, he's not spilling just what that idea was. He did reveal that he's spoken to his Edge Of Tomorrow co-star Emily Blunt about the project too, but that she said to him "give me another year, please".
