An extended BMW-centric trailer for Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol doesn’t expand on the plot of the movie, though it’s nice to know we’ll get a potentially deadly fan scene à la Tango & Cash (not everyone’s reference point?) and a dance number. Mostly, it just wants to convey that BMWs are as slick as Tom Cruise in a tux, Tom Cruise doing a modified Bo Duke slide (he goes over the roof of the car not the hood), and Tom Cruise doing anything near glass. That said, I’d like a BMW. Watch it below: READ FULL STORY »
Tag: Tom Cruise (61-70 of 82)
Director Brad Bird looks pretty cheerful in this featurette, considering he’s in charge of keeping one of the world’s biggest stars alive while he leaps, climbs, and dangles off the tallest building in the world. For the fourth installment of Mission: Impossible (no one has yet properly explained to me just what a “ghost protocol” is but I don’t care, I’m in), Tom Cruise apparently must find his inner Spidey and scale the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which stands at 2723 feet (gulp). This stunt really does look death-defyingly cool — lots of tourists caught the action themselves and it even made the local news.
As for Cruise, he looks pretty relaxed in those wires. The film (you can check out the trailer here) also stars Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, and Paula Patton, and will be in IMAX theaters Dec. 16 and everywhere on Dec. 21. READ FULL STORY »
The first trailer for Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol gave us the rough outlines of the plot — the Kremlin’s been bombed, Tom Cruise’s IMF team has been (wrongly) blamed, and they’ve now got to clear their names. The new trailer for the film, release today, fills in a few more of the blanks. Turns out Cruise’s team was at the Kremlin when things went kablooey, and they’re now the only four members of the IMF left. And Tom Wilkinson, playing a member of the U.S. cabinet (I’m guessing Secretary of Defense), gets killed just as he’s spelling out the stakes for Cruise’s Ethan Hunt. Oh, and at one point, a rather sizable missile appears to be headed straight for San Francisco. Yikes!
Plus, even more secret spy daring do has been packed into the two-and-a-half minute clip, including one very fancy looking car windshield. Check out the trailer below: READ FULL STORY »
If the mission for Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, and Simon Pegg was to look good, then it turns out it certainly wasn’t impossible. Cruise even makes a hoodie look suave! The foursome star in the much-anticipated sequel and poster for the latest Mission: Impossible film, subtitled Ghost Protocol. Judging by the one-sheet, things do get a bit spooky for Ethan Hunt — especially since his crew has, as the tagline reads, “No Plan. No Backup. No Choice.” Here’s guessing they’ll have no empty theater seat either. See the poster below. READ FULL STORY »
Werner Herzog will play the villain in Tom Cruise’s in-the-works Paramount thriller One Shot, EW has confirmed. The eccentric German auteur will play a character named The Zec, an ex-prisoner of war that first came to life in one of Lee Child’s bestselling Jack Reacher novels, according to Variety, which first reported the story.
The movie also stars Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, and Robert Duvall, and will be directed by The Usual Suspects writer Christopher McQuarrie. While Herzog may be a relative newbie when it comes to acting in front of the camera, playing a creepy villain opposite Cruise seems like a natural fit thanks to the auteur’s idiosyncratic, slightly off persona, which was recently put to good use as a guest voice on The Simpsons. Herzog is best known for such feature films as 1982′s Fitzcarraldo and 2006′s Rescue Dawn, starring Christian Bale. His documentaries, in which he often plays a part of the narrative, include 2005′s Grizzly Man and this summers’s Cave of Forgotten Dreams.
It’s just a matter of a few days, but Steven Spielberg’s two holiday movies are moving up their release dates.
The Adventures of Tintin, based on the internationally beloved comics about a boy adventurer and his trusty dog Snowy, moves up two days to Dec. 21, while War Horse shifts from Dec. 28 to Christmas day. “After seeing the film, it became clear to us that War Horse is something audiences should be able to see when they’re together with their families on Christmas Day,” says DreamWorks spokesman Chip Sullivan. “They have the time to see multiple movies during the holidays, and we want to be one of their choices when they are most available.” READ FULL STORY »
After one of the most auspicious film debuts in recent memory, actress Jessica Chastain (The Tree of Life, The Help, The Debt) has signed onto star opposite Tom Cruise in director Joseph Kosinski’s untitled sci-fi follow-up to his 2010 hit TRON: Legacy, EW has confirmed. (The Hollywood Reporter first reported the story.)
Set in an apocalyptic future where the majority of humanity lives in the clouds, Cruise will play a man who works on the Earth’s surface, repairing the machines that ward off an alien threat; Chastain will play his love interest who still lives above. When Cruise meets another woman who appears to have crash landed on the barren planet, he’s driven to reexamine everything he knows.
The film — which has at various points been titled Oblivion and Horizons – was conceived by Kosinski as a graphic novel with writer Arvid Nelson and illustrator Andree Wallin. The project was initially set up at Disney, and then moved to Universal last spring.
British actress Rosamund Pike has been cast opposite Tom Cruise in Christopher McQuarrie’s One Shot, according to her spokesperson. (Deadline initially reported the story.) The striking blond, who first gained international attention as a Bond Girl in 2002′s Die Another Day, will play a Midwestern defense attorney tasked with defending a serial sniper who may be wrongfully accused. Cruise’s Jack Reacher, a former military cop-turned-drifter, assists her in her hunt for the truth.
Pike, who also appeared in Pride & Prejudice, An Education, and Fracture, will next play Andromeda in the upcoming Clash of the Titans sequel.
It appears things have come full circle for Ethan Hunt, the hero of the Mission: Impossible movies, a.k.a. Tom Cruise’s one and only movie franchise. In the first film — released 15 years ago, just to blow your mind for a moment — Hunt was “disavowed” as an IMF agent after a mission gone horribly wrong. Well, now it’s 2011, and the stakes appear much, much higher: In the new trailer for Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol (out Dec. 16), we learn that no less than the Kremlin has gone kablooey. The fallout? As a grim-faced Tom Wilkinson explains, “The president has initiated ‘ghost protocol,’” meaning every single IMF agent everywhere has been disavowed. Burn.
After that, the trailer is a whirlwind of international action and intrigue, including appearances by Mission: Impossible III alum Simon Pegg, and M:I newbies Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, and a blink-and-you’ll-miss-him Josh Holloway. It all ends with an extended look at what is sure to be a climactic stunt on the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world — which is to say, no, that building is not CGI. Check out the trailer for the film, produced by J.J. Abrams and directed by Brad Bird (The Incredibles), below: READ FULL STORY »
