Mission: Impossible Is Going To Make A Fortune In China
Christopher McQuarrie’s Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation has already made a ridiculous of money. It’s still in the top five at the domestic box office - even after six weeks of release, which is regularly unheard of during summer blockbuster season. It's far from done making money, though.

Simon Pegg Really Wants To Make A Sequel To This Movie
Edgar Wright planned The World’s End to be the conclusion of his Cornetto Trilogy with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, so continuing this story wasn’t in the cards. Pegg, meanwhile, is crazy busy with Star Trek Beyond, which he’s co-writing and co-starring in. Could it happen eventually? Of course, but it seems like wishful thinking at the moment.
