Though Tom Cruise may have gone through a rough patch in his career, that's now completely over as he's being brought back to star in 'Mission: Impossible 5' for Paramount. This has been rumored for a while, but it was confirmed today.
Ever the busy producer, J.J. Abrams not only has 'Star Trek,' 'Star Wars' and 'Revolution' on his plate, his company Bad Robot is looking to get the rights to Stephen King's '11/22/63' and bring it to the small screen.
When 20th Century Fox was founded in 1935 (the combination of Fox Films Corporation and Twentieth Century Pictures) it's possible that the founders of the company may have joked that their name could become obsolete in sixty five years, but it seems unlikely they were thinking that far ahead. Now -- seventy-eight years later -- the company's name has been changed to reflect the times and updated to 21st Century Fox for everything but the movie side of their business.
December is often a surprising month at the box office as many films that never top the box office end up making a lot of money. The Tom Cruise vehicle 'Jack Reacher' opened right before Christmas and had a $15 million opening weekend. Sounds weak right? And yet the picture has grossed nearly $80 million domestically, and over $200 million worldwide. Which is why Paramount is talking about a sequel.
We're at an interesting crossroads for the new wave of young adult literature being adapted for the big screen. Sure, films like 'Twilight' or 'The Hunger Games' have shown that there is a sizable audience for these films, but yesterday's poor opening day showing of 'Beautiful Creatures' suggests that it takes more than just a series of modestly popular books to net a big screen audience. Perhaps author Stephenie Meyer will be enough to get people into the adaptation of her book 'The Host' and here's a new featurette with the author talking about the film.
We're less than a month away from the release of 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' and for those excited, it's good to know February is a short month. Drawn from the works of L. Frank Baum (and the success of Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland'), Sam Raimi's film looks big and weird and we're nothing if not curious. Here's two new TV spots to whet appetites.
The massive achievement that is HBO's 'The Wire' is such that even supporting players left a lasting impression on pop culture. Robert Chew, who played Prop Joe, had one of the juiciest roles (in a show chocked full of them) as a pragmatic drug lord known for his negotiating skills. Sadly, Chew passed away last night at the age of 52.
Look, we know that the odds are against 'A Good Day to Die Hard' being anywhere in the same league as the first 'Die Hard,' but still, we can be hopeful. And if nothing else, the release of the fifth film has done something cool. On February 13 in select cinemas, all four previous 'Die Hard' films will be showing in lead up to the first screenings of the new film.
Stuntman turned director David R. Ellis has passed away at the age of 60. He was prepping his next movie when he died suddenly of unknown causes. Though Ellis would never be considered an auteur, his no-nonsense approach and eye for good schlock made him one of the best B-movie directors in the business.
