I'm not sure whether I like this news or not. On the one hand I get Mission: Impossible 5 five months earlier than expected, on the other, does this mean director Christopher McQuarrie and team have to rush to meet a new release datec The news came today that Paramount was moving the return of Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible 5 from a December 25 release date, all the way up to July 31, a packed weekend for sure as it includes Antoine Fuqua's Southpaw starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Tarsem Singh's Selfless and the Point Break remake no one asked for. The move means it gets a nice, cushy summer release spot away from the likes of Spectre, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 and Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens. Though it does mean it's opening one weekend ahead of Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four, »

The tallies are almost identical, but "Mockingjay" has come away with the slight upper hand, raking in $333.18 million at the domestic box office since its November 21 bow. That's only incrementally better than "Guardians," which has so far made $333.17 million in North America, but good enough for the win.
Deadline reports that this is nothing new for Katniss and co., who also bested Marvel in 2013, when "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" initially lost out to "Iron Man 3" in the box office war, before claiming victory in January. And it marks the second year in a row that a female-led flick has taken the box office crown, a big coup in diversity-challenged Hollywood.
There will be another showdown between the two companies next year, too, since Marvel »

The actress said that she is "not happy" about only having a few scenes left to film on the final instalment, which is due out later this year.
During her conversation with Eddie Redmayne for Interview magazine, she said: "I think we're done with the press tour. I've got, like, one more thing to shoot for Hunger Games. We just have one scene to do for the end.
"I'm not happy about it at all. I would totally do [more movies]. And now Liam's doing a movie in Australia for two months. It's the longest that the three of us have ever spent apart."

I had a hell of a time trying to figure out how to tackle a list of my most anticipated movies of 2015. I'm not going to take the time to count the number of sequels, remakes, spin-offs, reboots, parts two of two or re-imaginings that are hitting theaters this year because, quite frankly, it doesn't matter any more. Trying to figure out where a film like Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens fit into a list of most anticipated films that weren't anything like it was impossible. Even then, how much am I "anticipating" the new Star Wars film versus how curious am I to simply see how it will turn out now that it's out of the hands of George Lucas and into the hands of J.J.
