Does Rebecca Ferguson Really Sing in The Greatest Showman?

  • BuzzSugar
The year's most talked-about musical, The Greatest Showman, features a cast of known singing talents, from Hugh Jackman to Zendaya. But one role in particular delivered a challenge: that of Jenny Lind, aka The Swedish Songbird, a famous opera singer who captures the attention of American showman P.T. Barnum. Lind is a real historical figure who did indeed work with the real-life Barnum in 1850. In the film, she's played by Swedish actress Rebecca Ferguson, who is perhaps best known to English-speaking audiences for her roles in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation and The Girl on the Train. But is that really the actress blasting out mind-blowing vocals in Benj Pasek and Justin Paul's gorgeous ballad "Never Enough"? The answer is no. Ferguson does have a background in music, having attended Adolf Fredrik's Music School in Stockholm, which apparently puts a strong focus on choral music. But for the film,

Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg Reunite in New Mission: Impossible 6 Photo

Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg Reunite in New Mission: Impossible 6 Photo
A brand new photo from Mission: Impossible 6 has surfaced. Director Christopher McQuarrie shared the photo on social media, which reunites Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg. This is the first official photo that's been released since Cruise suffered his severe injury while filming the movie back in August. Things seem to be moving right along now though and the movie should still be able to make its July 27, 2018, release date, despite the delay.

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.

The Snowman's Rebecca Ferguson talks making a murder mystery in the cold The Snowman's Rebecca Ferguson talks making a murder mystery in the cold Bob Strauss - Cineplex Magazine10/18/2017 10:15:00 Am

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!”

A beautiful locale for an ugly tale.

It’s hard to avoid horrific violence in any story written by Jo Nesbø,

First Tomb Raider Reboot Footage Has Lara Croft Back in Action
Lara Croft is finally coming back to the big screen. And today we have our first real look at the Tomb Raider reboot. The official Tomb Raider Twitter dropped a sneak peek, promising the Tomb Raider trailer is coming tomorrow. We also have a brand new poster that shows Alicia Vikander as the famed video game treasure hunter as she sets out on her first mission.

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. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father's global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he's truly gone.

Cool Videos: Tom Cruise busts a gut when shown memes about himself

  • JoBlo
If a meme ever emerges centered around little ol' me, I would hope that I would be able to deal with it with as much good humour as Tom Cruise. When the trailer for Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation was released, it featured the much-publicized sequence where Tom Cruise clung to the side of a military plane as it took off. The incredible stunt was quickly turned into meme-fodder and soon Tom Cruise was... Read More...

'The Mummy' Has a Mediocre Thursday

2017-06-09T10:30:22-07:00'The Mummy' Has a Mediocre Thursday

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.

Compared to other recent Cruise films, The Mummy’s preview number tops Jack Reacher:Never Go Back’s $1.3 million in Oct. 2016 on a way to a $22.9 million debut, but does not reach the heights of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation’s $4 million in previews in 2015 on its way to its $55.5 million opening.

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.

Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond) looks horrifying as the title character in The Mummy, while Tom Cruise (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) and Russell Crowe (Man of Steel) round out a stellar cast. This remake follows an ancient princess who is awakened from her crypt beneath the desert, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia, and terrors that defy human comprehension.

Edge Of Tomorrow 2 Has A Clever, But Obvious Title

It's rare that a sci-fi movie leaves as much of an impression as Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow, without being a sequel/prequel/remake or based on a comic book (it was an adaptation of a Japanese novel titled All You Need Is Kill). Written by Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation), it stared Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, the former playing an unlikely soldier, who gets trapped in a time loop, repeating the same day every time he dies. Edge of Tomorrow is one of the more memorable alien invasion movies this decade, with its Groundhog Day elements allowing for all sorts of action, horrors, and humor.

Edge of Tomorrow had a title problem. I was working at a movie theater in 2014, and most guests would ask for a ticket for "that Tom Cruise movie." Others called it Live Die Repeat, which was actually the tagline from the poster.
