BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
The fact that Chris McQuarrie trusted his instincts, and his cast, enough to make that change while already in the process -- and facing an enhanced deadline – shows why he’s one of the strongest working directors out there today.
We’ve been extremely lucky this summer, as 2015 has had some of the best box office offerings we’ve come across in a good couple of years. Yet amidst the dinosaurs, the fast cars, superheroes, and even the vicious water wars, there’s one film that stands out from the pack.
Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation continues the story of the IMF, this time pitting them against The Syndicate… an anti-IMF led by Solomon Lane (Sean Harris). Audiences, thankfully, embraced this latest mission, meaning Tom Cruise will be able to get the team back together very soon.
Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation may be full of surprising reveals and twisted plots, but there's one character lurking in the shadows who we were supposed to get much more of.
As Honest Trailers points out, with Cruise leading the way and selecting his directors, we’ve been privy to the psycho-drama of Brian De Palma, the shaky-cam of J.J. Abrams, the comic sensibilities of Brad Bird, and the diving sideways while holding two guns amidst a flying flock of doves that John Woo provides.
Chris Farley as Ethan Hunt? It works better than you'd think.
Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is a thrill-a-minute summer blockbuster. On top of that, though, it’s one of the year’s most entertaining films. Don’t make the mistake of waiting to see it at home, on cable or VOD.
Tom Cruise has played many iconic roles over the course of his career - but ranking right up towards the top is his supporting turn as studio executive Les Grossman in Tropic Thunder. It's ridiculous, crude, and unlike anything we've seen from the movie star before - but what may surprise you is that the character was actually Cruise's idea to include.
Heath Ledger's Joker helped a lot with Rogue Nation's villain.
Show them the VHS copies!
Tom Cruise has been one of our favorite movie stars for decades. With the release of his latest film, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, we thought it was high time that we count down our favorite Cruise roles.
As with many of Cruise’s movies, though, Edge did better overseas, banking a robust $369M internationally. That’s sequel money, particularly of the star and his director and screenwriter can get on board.
It’s one of those movies that more people found on DVD and cable, appreciating the work of Cruise and his director, Christopher McQuarrie. Jack Reacher is leading to a sequel, yet while Cruise is back in the lead role, McQuarrie had to pass, and I wondered why.
Given the fact that actors frequently look to return to successful franchises, it’s kind of ridiculous that Cruise has managed to avoid cranking out multiple sequels to all of the hits that he has developed over the years.
A sequel to the 1986 classic Top Gun has been one of those on again, off again, maybe, maybe not, topics for years. It looks like some new life is being given to the rumor .
Think you've got what it takes to be an IMF agent? You should experience the new escape room Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation is touring the nation with and put your skills to the test.
In the latest Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation clip, moviegoers who inexplicably yell unsolicited advice at filmed footage of fictional characters might be staying silent when it comes to one movie trope: running in high heels.
Sir Ian McKellen almost missed out on playing two of his most famous roles, Gandalf and Magneto, and it would have Tom Cruise's fault, sort of.
There is a sequence in Rogue Nation where the actor gets strapped to the side of an airplane while it's taking off, and while that kind of moment could easily be created with computers, green screens, and fans these days, Cruise decided to do it for real. What's more, he actually did it a crazy number of times.
Avengers star Jeremy Renner may not care about those rumors about him being gay floating around, but he does take issue with the new Mission: Impossible movie. In a new interview, the actor looks back at his time making this film and reveals that he was kept in the dark for most of production.
