“Top Gun 2” is still a ways off, but fans of Tom Cruise‘s ’80s classic can at least enjoy a TV news anchor’s recreation of the beach volleyball scene — if viewers don’t mind cheeky nudity. Chicago’s Wgn Morning News sports anchor Pat Tomasulo, who is also a stand-up comedian, visited the Ponderosa Nudist Resort in Indiana for a segment that aired earlier this week, and stripped off his clothes to blend in with the locals. The viral video — full of as many ball and penis jokes as possible — culminates in Tomasulo taking on the role of »

The pair clearly enjoy each other’s company, with January bringing the fruits of their second venture cartel thriller Mena, meaning Luna City will be their third collaboration. Could they be trying to rival Burton and Depp or Scorsese and DiCaprio for most actor / director team ups? Who knows.
What we do know about Luna City is that once upon a time (2014) Jake Gyllenhaal was attached to the project but dropped out. The story will follow a group of former space explorers who set about travelling the world, collating the equipment they need to head back to the moon in pursuit of a valuable energy source.
Of course with Cruise’s very busy plate (Jack Reacher 2, »

An ambitious teaser trailer showcases our first look at the really, really good-looking model’s return to the big screen after a 14-year absence
With Arnie heading back, or perhaps forward, or perhaps both simultaneously, in Terminator Genisys, Stallone refusing to let Rocky go down without a fight in upcoming spin-off Creed and Tom Cruise rumoured to be feeling the need for speed, even at his age, in Top Gun 2, it’s never been as commonplace for actors to relive their greatest hits.

This inaugural edition of The Week in Movies discusses the last seven days in cinema – mainly the new Star Wars Universe reports, details on Jurassic World 2, the first image from Wolverine 3, Tom Cruise going sequel crazy and a whole load of superhero stuff.
Here’s a brief peak behind the movie news site business’ cinema drapes – any articles with the words ‘Star Wars‘ in the title tend to get tonnes of page views. That’s why some sites make up headlines. Whether that includes this latest Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One rumour about Felicity Jones’ character being the daughter of one of the series’ most famous villains, or whether Lucasfilm are working on three live-action Star Wars series for Netflix, this column couldn’t possibly say (for more news from a galaxy far, far away, check out The Week in Star Wars). It can, however, say this:

Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow wasn't exactly a massive box office blockbuster when it hit theaters last summer, but it still fared quite well. The sci-fi action-thriller took in just over $100 million domestically and $369 million worldwide from a whopping $178 million budget. While the profit margin wasn't quite as big as some were expecting, the film was met with critical acclaim, leading some to wonder if a sequel is even possible. While promoting this weekend's Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, Tom Cruise revealed to MTV that he actually pitched his own idea for Edge of Tomorrow 2 to screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie and director Doug Liman, and although he wouldn't divulge any specific plot details, he did add that Emily Blunt will have to be involved.
"I pitched it to [Rogue Nation director and Edge of Tomorrow screenwriter Christopher] McQuarrie and [Edge of Tomorrow director] Doug [Liman]. We were there one night and I was like, I've got an idea for it. It could be so much fun. »
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 »

Back in May, a report surfaced that Mission: Impossible 6 is already in development, which came two months before the latest installment of this lucrative franchise, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation hits theaters. With the release now just a few days away, Tom Cruise appeared on Comedy Central's The Daily Show, where he told host Jon Stewart that work has already begun on Mission: Impossible 6, with production set to begin next summer. Here's what the action star had to say during his appearance on the talk show.
"We're starting to work on [Mission: Impossible 6] now. We'll probably start shooting it next summer [in 2016]."
The news that Mission: Impossible 6 is already moving forward isn't terribly surprising at all. Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation is expected to take in between $50 million and $60 million at the box office when it opens in theaters this weekend. However, if production does in fact start next year, it would be fairly surprising, »
It's fitting that Tom Cruise has been talking about Top Gun 2 lately, given that he's recently brought back that lovin' feeling on The Tonight Show. As you may know, Jimmy Fallon likes to engage in lip sync battles with various celebrities and Tom was the latest one to take up the microphone. Yes, it's as ridiculous as you'd think it would be. No, Jimmy Fallon shouldn't... Read More »

Top Gun 2: Producer David Ellison recently proclaimed: "There is no Top Gun 2 without Maverick," the cocky pilot played by Tom Cruise in the 1986 original. Now Cruise himself says: "If I can figure it out, if all of us can figure it out, it’d be fun to do, I’d like to fly those jets again, but we got to do all the jets practical, no CGI on the jets. … If we can figure all that out, and the Department of Defense will allow us to do it, that would be fun.” The project is currently in the scriptwriting stage.

Tom Cruise has flirted with sequels over the course of his career. He.s currently dancing around the possibility of Top Gun 2. And studios have tried to get him back in the saddle for follow-ups to his biggest hits. But so far, the only franchise Cruise has ever returned to, time after time, is the Mission: Impossible series, and I wanted to find out why. This past weekend, I was lucky enough to attend the world premiere of Christopher McQuarrie.s Mission: Impossible . Rogue Nation, and speak with Tom Cruise on the event.s red carpet. After pointing out that Ethan Hunt is the only character in his body of work that he has chosen to develop and return to, I asked Cruise if there was another character he had played in his past who he wants to continue playing, to see where their story goes. He told me: »
"Top Gun 2," a sequel to Tom Cruise's 1986 hit, is now being written with what's been called "an amazing role" for Cruise as Maverick. Tommy boy is now 53, but he's still known for performing his own (extreme) stunts -- as in his new movie "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation."
While in London for the premiere of "Rogue Nation," Cruise addressed the "Top Gun 2" talk with Reuters:
It would be fun. I would like to get back into those jets."
However, he does have a specific demand:
It would have to be practical. I don't want any CGI jets. I want to shoot it like how we shot the first one."
There's the Maverick we know and love!

What will it take for Top Gun 2 to finally take flight?
Getting Maverick into the cockpit one more time will require a compelling story and an old school approach to the sound-barrier shattering stunts, according to its star.
"If I can figure it out, if all of us can figure it out, it'd be fun to do, I'd like to fly those jets again, but we got to do all the jets practical, no CGI on the jets," Cruise told Extra.
"I'm saying right now, no CGI on the jets. If we can figure all that out, and the Department »

A sequel to the 1986 classic Top Gun has been one of those on again, off again, maybe, maybe not, projects for years. Now it looks like some new life is being given to the rumor, as Tom Cruise was asked his thoughts about the potential sequel at the premiere of the new Mission:Impossible movie. It sounds like he.s up for it, as long as he actually gets to be in an F-14 again. Speaking with Extra, Cruise made a couple of edicts on the topic of Top Gun 2, saying that the jets will be real, and he.ll get to fly in them. Said the actor, I.d like to fly those jets again. But we.ve got to do all the jets practical. No CGI on the jets. I remember when I did the first one, I said .Look, in my contract I had to have three »

If we can figure all that out, and the Department of Defense will allow us to do it, that would be fun.”
