Tag: Tom Cruise (21-30 of 91)

Casting Net: Hugh Jackman attached to 'Six Years'; Plus, Tom Cruise and 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E', Nick Jonas, Sarah Silverman, more

• Hugh Jackman is attached to star in an adaptation of mystery and thriller author Harlan Coben’s upcoming novel Six Years. The story is about Jake Fisher who loses his love to another man. When Fisher attends the other man’s funeral to see his long-lost love six years later, he realizes that the widow is not the same woman, and as a result, he begins to doubt everything. It’s still very early in the process — Coben’s novel has yet to be released (out March 19), and there is currently no director or screenwriter attached. Guillaume Canet adapted the Coben triller Tell No One for the big screen. As for Jackman, the Oscar-nominated actor can be seen next in The Wolverine, in theaters July 26. [THR]

• Tom Cruise is in early talks to star in Warner Bros. adaptation of the 1960s NBC series Man from U.N.C.L.E, about a pair of secret agents who work for the international agency U.N.C.L.E, or, United Network Command for Law and Enforcement. Guy Ritchie is currently attached to direct. The film adaptation has been in the works for years. At one point, Steven Soderbergh was attached to direct George Clooney, and when Clooney had to drop out due to an injury, basically every current Hollywood dreamboat was considered for the role, including Ryan Gosling, Jon Hamm, Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum, and Michael Fassbender.  [Deadline]

Visions of the past come alive in newest trailer for 'Oblivion' with Tom Cruise -- VIDEO

Tom Cruise’s movie Oblivion opens April 19, and in this new trailer, we get to see just a little bit more of the mystery unfold.

60 years after an invasion that destroys Earth, Jack Harper (Cruise) is a curious maintenance man who repairs security drones. But his curiosity (of course) gets him into trouble when he discovers a survivor who jogs his memory and opens the door for more questions.

The trailer begins with Harper in some woods by a lake, a contrast from the past images we’ve seen from the film, and starkly different from the images that dominate the rest of the trailer — a wasteland of a planet, with bits of familiar landmarks rising above the dismal gray landscape.

Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman face 'Oblivion' in new posters -- EXCLUSIVE

Oblivion is taking Tom Cruise to a now-familiar place — a sci-fi setting where a disconnected soul confronts hard choices and a mystery that makes him question his assumptions about the world around him. That was the case in Minority Report, Vanilla Sky and War of the Worlds and it’s also the case in the April 12 film that stars Cruise as Jack Harper, a repair worker in a distant future where  (like WALL-E or the Maytag repairman) his days are defined by his solitary duties. The film is directed by Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy) and based his graphic novel.

Some new images from the film nod to the tone Kosinski was seeking as he shot in 4K resoultion in Iceland and parts of the United States. The film costars Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, and Melissa Leo. Here’s more from the Universal Pictures summary:

“On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind. Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack’s mission is nearly complete.Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautifulstranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.”

New 'Oblivion' trailer sheds light on Tom Cruise's sci-fi adventure -- VIDEO

The international trailer for Tom Cruise’s upcoming “WALL•E meets Battlestar Galactica” movie Oblivion reveals a little more about the film’s dystopic premise than its first trailer — and shines more of a spotlight on both Olga Kurylenko, who plays a mysterious woman from Cruise’s past, and Andrea Riseborough, who plays his semi-sinister colleague.

The film, set 60 years after an alien invasion that destroyed Earth, follows Cruise’s Jack Harper — not to be confused with Jack Reacher — as he works to repair security drones on the ravaged planet. When Jack defies orders by rescuing an oddly familiar stranger from a crashed spaceship, he ignites a chain of events that exposes everything he’s been told about the invasion as a lie. Morgan Freeman also co-stars. Check out the second trailer below.

Christopher McQuarrie 'deciding to direct' the next 'Mission: Impossible'?

It’s been a little over a year since the Brad Bird-directed, IMAX-amplified, heavily-punctuated Mission: Impossible–Ghost Protocol. The movie was a box office hit, a critical sensation, and a boon to the Dubai tourism board. It also rejuvenated the Mission: Impossible franchise. Producer-star Tom Cruise has been circling another sequel, and early rumors had his Jack Reacher writer-director Christopher McQuarrie as a strong possibility to helm the five-quel. McQuarrie’s best-known work was the Oscar-winning screenplay for The Usual Suspects, but he’s lately become a Cruise favorite, having written Valkyrie and co-scripted the upcoming All You Need Is Kill – a movie which, we need to stress, is still titled All You Need Is Kill, thank goodness.

Watch the trailer for 'Top Gun 3D'

Goose and Maverick are back and quite literally bigger than ever.

Beginning on Feb. 8 and ending Feb. 13, Tom Cruise’s hit film Top Gun will return to theaters, but this time, you can feel the need for speed in a whole new way: IMAX 3-D. And if the movie’s 1986 success — it grossed more than $350 million in the box office worldwide — is any indication, we’d expect a large turnout.

Take a look at the Top Gun 3D trailer … which looks a lot like just another Top Gun trailer … which it kind of is. READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'The Hobbit' outdraws 'Django' and 'Les Mis' with $32.9 million

Bilbo-Baggins

Despite the arrival of two holiday heavyweights, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey retained the top spot at the box office for the third weekend in a row.

Warner Bros.’ $250 million fantasy prequel was held out of the top spot from Tuesday until Thursday by Les Miserables, but over the traditional weekend frame Hobbit dipped only 11 percent to bring in $32.9 million, and its domestic total now stands tall at $222.7 million. After 17 days, The Hobbit is performing well ahead of 2001′s The Fellowship of the Ring, which had earned $189.3 million at the same point in its run (though that number climbs to about $260 million after accounting for inflation), but it still trails the 17-day cumes of The Two Towers ($243.6 million), and The Return of the King ($272.8 million). Notably, those films did not have 3D or IMAX surcharges boosting their totals. READ FULL STORY

Box office update: 'The Hobbit' journeys back to No. 1; 'Django' and 'Les Mis' stay strong

UNEXPECTED-JOURNEY

Snowstorms in the northeast may be limiting moviegoing attendance this weekend, but inclement weather won’t stop Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf from ringing in the New Year in style.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey returned to the top of the box office on Friday, crossing the $200 million mark in the process. The $250 million Warner Bros. release grossed an estimated $10.7 million on Friday, putting it on pace for a $31 million weekend, which would bring its total to about $221 million and lift its worldwide cume past $600 million.

Box office preview: 'Jack Reacher' leads new releases, but can't compete with 'The Hobbit'

the-hobbit-baggins

Whether or not the world ends tomorrow, things are looking pretty dire for the four new wide releases entering theaters this weekend: Jack Reacher, This is 40, The Guilt Trip, and Monsters Inc. 3D. Of course, December movies need not earn gargantuan grosses on their debut weekends to eventually end up with respectable totals. In 2010, Yogi Bear opened with a weak $16.4 million, but thanks to easy accessibility over the holiday season, when kids are out of school and adults off of work, the film eventually topped out at $100.2 million.

Studios will be hoping for similar endurance from this week’s crop of newcomers — none of them are tracking particularly well, and all of them will likely be crushed by the second weekend of The Hobbit. Here’s how I think the box office might shake out over the Friday-to-Sunday period:

1. The Hobbit – $37 million

The Warner Bros. release has earned $106.5 million in its first six days (for reference, The Return of the King had earned $137.6 million in the same period of time), and it will likely drop by about 55 percent this weekend to $37 million, which would lift its total to about $150 million after ten days.

'Jack Reacher' premiere postponed due to Newtown school shooting

Paramount Pictures announced late Friday that tomorrow’s planned world premiere of the Tom Cruise thriller Jack Reacher has been postponed “due to the terrible tragedy in Newtown Connecticut, and out of honor and respect for the families of the victims whose lives were senselessly taken.”

Based on the pulp thrillers by author Lee Child, the PG-13 film opens with a random shooting in a public place as seen through a sniper’s rifle. READ FULL STORY
