jerry maguire

When Jerry Maguire (Tom Cruise) has a bit of a “breakthrough, not a breakdown,” he wears his heart on his sleeve for the first time in a long time and writes “The Things We Think and Do Not Say: The Future of Our Business.” What does he get in return for penning the heartfelt mission statement? Fired. Instead of becoming the man he always wanted to be simply overnight, a selfless and caring man, he ends up losing sight of himself once again. While the mission statement initially doesn’t go according to plan, Maguire ultimately does become that man he envisioned by the end of writer-director Cameron Crowe‘s 1996 film.

Via voiceover, we only hear snippets from Maguire’s 25-page mission statement, but with the 20th anniversary of Jerry Maguire coming up, “The Things We Think and Do Not Say: The Future of Our Business” has been made available to read in its entirety. Read an excerpt from the Jerry Maguire mission statement below.

edge of tomorrow 2 director

UPDATE: Christopher McQuarrie took to Twitter to correct Deadline’s original post. He will not be directing Edge of Tomorrow 2. Doug Liman will return to helm the sequel. The original article follows.

Edge of Tomorrow didn’t make my top 10 of 2014, but I’ve certainly watched it more times than any other film that did make the list. Doug Liman’s science fiction war movie works on just about every level: it’s stylish and smart and hilarious and filled with genuinely unique action that’s powered by a Groundhog Day-esque time travel plot that allows its lead character to repeatedly die on the battlefield and instantly return to action. Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are a duo for the ages. It’s wonderful.

It also has a completely definitive ending that wraps up every loose end, making it the rare modern studio tentpole film to not showcase an interest in building a franchise. But rumblings of a potential sequel began in earnest last year and now there’s been a major step forward – writers have been hired to pen Edge of Tomorrow 2 and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie is now attached to direct.

Annabelle Wallis in Peaky Blinders

Every cinematic shared universe begins with a single film, and for the prospective Universal Monsters franchise, that’s The Mummy. (Well, at one point it was Dracula Untold, but Universal seems perfectly happy to forget that one ever existed, and to let everyone else forget it too.) Which is why it’s so important for the studio to get it right. So far, things look reasonably promising.

They hired Alex Kurtzman to direct, and convinced Tom Cruise to lend his A-list star wattage as the leading man. They got Sofia Boutella to play the Mummy herself, adding an interesting gender-swapped wrinkle to the project. And now they’re starting to fill up some of the other roles. First up is Annabelle Wallis, probably best known from the U.K. TV series Peaky BlindersRead More »

the mummy remake

Months ago it was reported Tom Cruise was in negotiations to headline Universal’s third recent attempt to revive their classic monsters. Now, it’s been confirmed Cruise will indeed star in director Alex Kurtzman‘s (People Like Us) remake of The Mummy. Having an actor of Cruise’s caliber involved probably played a hand in the studio’s decision to open the tentpole film in the summer.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

most overpaid actors

In news that should come as no surprise the millions of people who went out of their way to avoid Mortdecai and Transcendence, Forbes has compiled its annual list of the most overpaid actors in Hollywood and Johnny Depp is sitting not-so-pretty at number one. And when you look at the raw numbers, no one else is even close.

However, there’s a little more going on here than a great excuse to kick Johnny Depp and his collection of dumb hats while they’re down. The disparity between what “movie stars” are paid and what their movies end up grossing at the box office is shifting. The age of the movie star is effectively over and you can see this reflected in the full list below.

‘Mission: Impossible 6’ Will Have Its Own Style

Mission: Impossible 6 style

What’s great about the Mission: Impossible series is that every installment has its own flavor. Each filmmaker, from Brian De Palma (Dressed to Kill) to J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) to Brad Bird (Tomorrowland), brought their distinct style to the franchise. This past summer, with Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, writer/director Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) left his identifiable mark on the series. McQuarrie is returning to direct the sixth installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise, but that doesn’t mean we should expect to see the same vision twice.

After the jump, read what McQuarrie had to say about the Mission: Impossible 6 style.
