MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – ROGUE NATION

As it stands, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation has no shortage of crowdpleasing stunts, twists, and turns. But as happens with every movie, there were some bits that just couldn’t make it in the final cut. During a recent interview in New York City, director Chris McQuarrie dished some details on a big moment for Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg) that sadly didn’t make the cut.

Mission Impossible 5 Simon Pegg character profile

Okay, so you’ve been hearing how great the latest Mission: Impossible film is. The film tested higher than Ghost Protocol in test screenings and even the film critics are loving it. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation is currently scoring a whopping 97% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, which is incredible for a big budget blockbuster film. This is one of those film franchises that keeps getting better and better.

One of the things I loved about the latest installments is how much more action and screen time we see from Simon Pegg‘s character Benji Dunn. So when Paramount Pictures asked me to debut a Mission Impossible 5 Simon Pegg character profile, I said yes. The video focuses on Simon Pegg’s involvement in the latest installment, showing some behind the scenes footage of Pegg on set. Watch the Mission Impossible 5 Simon Pegg character profile now embedded after the jump.

Star Trek Beyond charity video

The last video promoting the fund-raising collaboration between charitable organization Omaze and the producers and cast of Star Trek Beyond featured a walkthrough of the Enterprise set and some sweet dance moves from new Trek villain actor Idris Elba.

The new charity video is short on dancing (you’ll just see Elba in b-roll footage from the last video) but it does have quite a lot of entertaining patter from writer and co-star Simon Pegg and actor Anton Yelchin. Oh, and there’s a little art department visit with a few props and one alien head.

Check out the new Star Trek Beyond charity video below. Read More »

Daniel Craig Star Wars cameo

It’s no surprise that when a rumor pops up online about Star Wars, there’s usually no confirmation whatsoever, and denial is nearly as rare, usually only coming from the talent involved in the rumors. Meanwhile, Lucasfilm just sits quietly and lets the rumors flow.

However, one of the more interesting rumors that seemed to get solidified was the involvement of James Bond star Daniel Craig in a very minor role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It was a crazy rumor back in September of 2014, but then Simon Pegg seemed to confirm it, saying that 007 would be suited up as a Stormtrooper. But now Craig has fired back and denied that claim entirely. Find out more about the Daniel Craig Star Wars cameo denial below! Read More »

Force Awakens Breakdown

One of the highlights at Comic Con this year was a behind the scenes reel for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. When this was released over the weekend, I tried to pull together a piece dissecting the reel image by image, but the madness that is Comic Con prevented me from finishing it until now.

What follows is a breakdown of 13 things we learned from this footage, this includes confirmation of new and old characters, our first look at some of the cast, some story and character details put together from the new images matched with previous rumors, and some questions. Hit the jump to read our list.

UPDATE: We can now confirm Simon Pegg will indeed be in Star Wars: The Force Awakens — but as we speculated earlier, his face won’t be. A behind-the-scenes reel shown at Comic-Con 2015 showed Pegg on set, and wearing an alien costume without the head. So we’ll definitely see him in the movie, but we likely won’t be able to recognize him. It’s not even clear if we’ll hear his voice.  Read More »
