The Mission Impossible: Fallout press tour is still happening and it still needs 100% more Angela Bassett. And where’s Ving Rhames? Without both, we have to settle for Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, and Simon Pegg. Their most recent stop on the M:I - Fallout tour was Beijing on Wednesday. The next best thing to Angela Bassett is Tom and Henry showing up in virtually identical suits and playing Photo Assumption about who can pose harder/act taller. Full Story

Ready Player One is Steven Spielberg’s latest movie, a return to his populist roots and the escapist fantasies for which he is most famous. Based on poet Ernest Cline’s novel of the same name, RPO is a fanboy’s love letter to nostalgia and gatekeeping and now it’s been enshrined by Steven Spielberg himself. Full Story

Here’s a fun surprise—a movie that was not really on my radar, Star Trek Beyond, turned out to be the most fun and well-made summer action movie since Captain America: Civil War. In 2009, JJ Abrams rebooted Star Trek, but his heavily Star Wars-influenced take on the material displeased classic Trek fans (they’ve asked not to be called Trekkies anymore). Full Story

After the back-to-back highs of Avengers: Age of Ultron and Mad Max: Fury Road, I’m kind of in a blockbuster hangover zone where I’ve lost interest in seeing more blockbusters. Like despite Chris Pratt’s charm offensive, Jurassic World is off my radar entirely. But a new trailer for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (here is a franchise that really needs to use numbers and not subtitles) promises that there is still some action-movie fun left to be had this summer. Full Story

You know how that meadow is a big f-cking deal to Twi-Hards? Well f-ck off Twi-Hards, because Tom Cruise meadowed first! So you’ve heard about Going Clear? The new HBO Scientology documentary that premiered at Sundance? Word is HBO assembled a team of 160 lawyers to cover their asses so that they could go ahead and make this movie. Full Story

Star Wars has a stupid title

There’s an epidemic in Hollywood, a rash spreading through production offices like a bad case of pink eye, and it’s the trend of dumb subtitles given to franchise pictures. My #1 stupid title punching bag is Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, which I call Superhero Face Punch because that is clearly a better, more to-the-point title. Full Story

Production on Mission: Impossible 5 is underway. Yesterday the team was in Vienna. Tom Cruise spent the day doing stunt rehearsals on the rooftop of the Vienna Opera House. That Tom Cruise, always living on the edge of danger. But you can really see it. That’s all he ever wants to do: be on set, working. Full Story

The GMD is slick and sensitive

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 26, 2011 18:07:30 October 26, 2011 18:07:30

They’ve released a poster for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. As you can see, Tom Cruise is front and centre, under a hooded leather jacket, looking appropriately determined. He is accessorised by his co-stars Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, and Simon Pegg. Where’s Josh Holloway? No matter. All that matters, always, is the GMD, who’s actually kinda hot here, strategically placed in the foreground with the added benefit of not seeming so short. Full Story
