Mission: Impossible 5 has been something of a mystery for a while now—while the scramble of rumors concerning Christopher McQuarrie taking the director’s chair (he also directed franchise star Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher) and Iron Man III co-writer Drew Pearce picking up the screenwriting duties turned out to be true, that’s...

'Mission: Impossible 5': Christopher McQuarrie Has Accepted this 'Mission'

Published by

It's funny, Mission: Impossible: III showed Tom Cruise - then considered weak because of the Oprah situation and his beliefs - on the precipice of stardom, and likely to fall off. Whereas the sequel Mission : Impossible - Ghost Protocol saw him back on top at age 50. Time heals all, we guess. Now they're making Mission: Impossible 5, and...

Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol
Following the strong success of Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, it was always highly likely that we were going to get a Mission: Impossible 5.  However, since a solid chunk of the Ghost Protocol was given over to introducing and establishing Jeremy Renner’s character (basically all the parts that weren’t completely awesome) in order for Renner to take over...

'Jack Reacher' Featurette: Tom Cruise Gets Author Lee Child's Seal of...

Published by

Jack Reacher
When you transform a 6'5" 250 lbs. ex-military police officer fictional character into Tom Cruise, there's going to some grumblings from the book's fanbase, so it makes sense for Paramount to release a featurette about Jack Reacher that shows author Lee Child (real name: Jim Grant) praising your star. Sure, they paid Child a lot of money for the adaptation, but he...

How quickly we forgive or forget. Tom Cruise was considered a box office poison when his personal life overwhelmed his career, and he's had a string of box office disappointments. In fact, 2010 saw Cruise in Knight and Day, which unperformed and felt barely released. But word is good on his next Mission: Impossible movie, and so Cruise is a...
