Across five "Mission: Impossible" movies, Tom Cruise has opted to work with a new director for each outing —each helmer has brought a slightly different flavor for Ethan Hunt's continuing adventures. But for the followup to this summer's hit "Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation," Cruise has decided to forgo tradition and employ the director of that film, a longtime pal. Christopher McQuarrie will be back to write, direct, and produce "Mission: Impossible 6." Lending his writing skills to blockbusters "Valkyrie," "Jack Reacher," and "Edge Of Tomorrow," McQuarrie knows how shape material to Cruise's specifications, and their work together has been fruitful and clearly satisfying for both of them. However, for those eager to see what another director might do with the series, this news is probably a bit less exciting. Production is slated to begin next August, and Rebecca Ferguson will possibly return as well. No release date »

Well, cue Danny Elfman’s indelible score, because the writer-director has seemingly just confirmed via Twitter that he will indeed return in the hot seat for the next installment in the action juggernaut, reuniting with Tom Cruise’s super-spy Ethan Hunt. But will he write, direct, or both?

It’s hardly surprising, really; this year’s Rogue Nation – having been brought forward to the summer in order to prevent a clash with The Force Awakens – earned a respectable haul at the box office to the tune of $682 million worldwide. Paramount’s decision to fast-track a direct sequel has been on the cards for some time, after all.
Now, it finally »

Back in May, two months before Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation hit theaters in July, a report surfaced that Paramount has already started developing Mission: Impossible 6. Tom Cruise was confirmed to return as Ethan Hunt, and produce alongside David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and J.J. Abrams. Today, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation director Christopher McQuarrie revealed on his Twitter account that he has come aboard to direct Mission: Impossible 6.
This marks the first time that the same director has taken the helm for back-to-back movies in the Mission: Impossible franchise. The series kicked off with 1996's Mission: Impossible, directed by Brian De Palma, followed by director John Woo's Mission: Impossible 2 (2000), J.J. Abrams' Mission: Impossible III (2006) and Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011). J.J. Abrams made his directorial debut with Mission: Impossible III, and he has stayed on board as a producer ever since.

Well, that was awesome, right? The Doctor runs around a castle that’s really a constantly shifting maze, pursed by a Mr. Death who’s come about the reaping, sometimes going to his mind palace that is the Tardis to mope about Clara. It’s like It Follows meets Cube on whatever planet Myst was supposed to be happening on.
That mind-blowing moment when the Doctor realizes that he’s done this all before! Many times. It’s like he’s playing a game and dying and rebooting and trying to get a little further each time. It’s like Edge of Tomorrow except without the remembering on each go-round.
And then it all falls apart. It starts falling apart the moment the Doctor says to “Clara,” “I can remember it all — every time.” It keeps falling apart as you poke at the notion a bit more.

When you’ve been plotting and writing Doctor Who for as long as Steven Moffat has, you inevitably must stumble across an idea that’s so mad you have no choice but to see it through to its finish. What will the people who so often chant for Moffat’s dismissal from the series – those who claim he has run out of ideas – make of this intimately epic hour that delves deep into the psyche of the show’s central figure? Perhaps they will say that it is nothing more than a rip-off of Groundhog Day or Edge of Tomorrow or any of the myriad films or TV shows that have exploited the time loop gimmick in this manner. If it were done poorly, we may have cause to tear into it, but when it’s done to such aching perfection as this, we must stand back, catch our breath, »

Production is finally about to get underway on Channing Tatum’s Gambit movie, with Edge Of Tomorrow and Bourne Identity’s Doug Liman settling into the warm spot of Rupert Wyatt’s vacant director’s chair. We already know that Gambit will be acting independently of the main X-Men series, and that rather than an epic fight between friends, rivals and external forces, it will be a heist movie.
If there’s one thing the X-Men movies have never been shy about, it’s cramming in the mutants as either cameos or anthropomorphic MacGuffins. It’s safe to assume then that Gambit will be no different, bringing in some fan pleasing cameos and possibly even rehabilitating some of the characters that were so poorly served by X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine now that the events of those two films have been completely expunged from »

Last week we got seven clips from director Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea [watch them here], and now Warner Bros. has debuted a new featurette for the film entitled ‘The Myth of Moby Dick’. Check it out below after the official synopsis…
In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. “Heart of the Sea” reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, »

Variety reports that actor Tom Cruise is in talks to headline director Alex Kurtzman’s “The Mummy” reboot for Universal Pictures. Universal recently tapped Kurtzman and “Fast & Furious” producer Chris Morgan to oversee their classic monster franchises such as “Dracula”, “Bride of Frankenstein”, “The Wolfman”, and “The Mummy” in a shared cinematic universe.
Cruise is currently filming Paramount Pictures’ “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” with director Edward Zwick (“The Last Samurai”). Cruise was also in negotiations to reteam with his “Edge of Tomorrow” director Doug Liman for the sci-fi film, “Luna Park »

Last week, a report surfaced that offered new insight into Universal Pictures' Monsters Shared Universe franchise, which is being lead by Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan. While last year's Dracula Untold served as a "prologue" for this shared universe, the first full-fledged adventure will be the Untitled Mummy Reboot, directed by Alex Kurtzman, which will start shooting in early 2016. Today we have a new report from Variety, which claims that Tom Cruise is in early talks to star in the Mummy reboot, although reps from both the studio and the actor tell Deadline that he is not in contention to star at all.
The Variety report claims that Tom Cruise won't produce, but he is expected to be involved in the development. Jon Spaihts (Passengers) is writing the screenplay, with director Alex Kurtzman also set to produce with Chris Morgan and Sean Daniel. All of the characters in this monster universe, »

Who said acting is nothing more than reciting lines and collecting a paycheck? Sometimes it’s much more than that, with our latest exhibit being Chris Hemsworth (who usually has a stone-chiseled body to portray Marvel superhero Thor) and his emaciated new look he achieved as a form of method acting throughout the duration of filming In the Heart of the Sea.
This isn’t the first time a high-profile actor has shed weight for a role; Christian Bale is no stranger to these extreme lengths of getting into character, especially for the overlooked and under-appreciated film The Machinist.
It goes without saying that radically changing your diet routine like this cannot be healthy, but one must applaud the dedication of the performers and have nothing but utmost respect for sacrificing their health in the name of art. Now someone get Chris Hemsworth a few McDonald’s Big Macs!

Once upon a time, Mission: Impossible . Rogue Nation director Christopher McQuarrie said that he felt sorry for the next guy that took on the directing duties for the franchise. He said this because he felt the approach of a new director with every outing was beneficial to the longevity of the series. Well, the next guy just might be haunted by those words, as McQuarrie is supposedly in talks to become the director of Mission: Impossible 6. Sources "close to the situation" have commented that the as of yet untitled, but already in development, sequel may not only be written by the steady hand that brought us The Usual Suspects and Edge Of Tomorrow, but it may also be directed by the man who brought us this summer's blockbuster entry into the Ethan Hunt canon. It must be mentioned that Variety's report also stipulates that reps for Paramount or McQuarrie himself »
