The new Mission: Impossible 6 photo looks great, in stark black and white, with Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt out in front and Simon Pegg's loyal Benji Dunn behind him. The photo doesn't really tell us anything about the movie, but it does serve as a reminder that we're in for another (hopefully) excellent spy adventure next year. With Spectre having disappointed in 2015, Mission: Impossible really has become the premiere spy franchise in Hollywood at the moment.
Rebecca Ferguson is used to living between two worlds, so she felt right at home making the gory mystery The Snowman.
“It’s by a studio from America and an incredible Swedish director,” Ferguson says over the phone from London. The 34-year-old actor’s mom was English but her dad was Swedish and Ferguson, whose full name is Rebecca Louisa Ferguson Sundström, was born and raised in Stockholm.
“I got to work with Michael Fassbender, run around in deep snow in Norway — which, by the way, if you’ve never been, you should go. It is breathtakingly beautiful up there!”

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class.

Universal's monster movie The Mummy dug up $2.7 million in late night shows in 3,015 theaters on Thursday night.
The film, which stars Tom Cruise and is the first film in a planned Dark Universe franchise centering on the studio's classic monster character, is tracking to earn around $35 million from 4,000 theaters in its domestic debut, putting intense pressure on the movie's foreign performance.

Wonder Woman, Warner Bros.' hit superhero film helmed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, should easily top the domestic box office once again this weekend.
