American Made Trailer - Tom Cruise

Just recently, we found out that Tom Cruise will get back in a fighter jet for Top Gun: Maverick. Before that, he’ll be in a different pilot’s seat, running guns and drugs for the CIA in one of the biggest covert operations in the agency’s history.

American Made (formerly known as Mena) is based on a true story and follows Tom Cruise as a commercial airline pilot turned smuggler in the film from The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman. It looks like the kind of blend of comedy and action that made Liman and Cruise’s last collaboration in Edge of Tomorrow (aka Live Die Repeat) so fun to watch, and you’ll see what I mean in the first trailer that just debuted online before hitting theaters with The Mummy this weekend.

The Mummy Clips

The blockbuster summer season just keeps marching forward. Now that Wonder Woman has hit theaters and exceeded even the higher opening weekend box office predictions, it’s time to look forward to what’s coming next weekend.

The big release for the weekend of June 9 will be The Mummy, the horror action adventure combo that is meant to kick off Universal’s ambitious plan to create the Dark Universe that they made such a big deal about officially announcing recently. Tom Cruise stars in the remake of the classic monster movie that still looks like more action than horror, and leading up the film’s release in just a few days, Universal has released a batch of clips to entice audiences. The only problem is they don’t instill much confidence in the flick.

Top Gun 2 Title

Last week, we were surprised to learn that Top Gun 2 was no longer just a flight of fancy that Tom Cruise would occasionally comment on. The actor has been making the publicity rounds for The Mummy (opening next week), and with the big news regarding the Top Gun sequel surfacing last week, he’s being inundated with questions about what fans can expect from the long-awaited follow-up to the original 1986 film. Thankfully, he provided some helpful details, including the sequel’s title.

Find out the Top Gun 2 title after the jump, along with what fans can expect from the new movie below. Read More »

The Mummy featurette

Next weekend, we’ll get a sense of how audiences feel about Universal’s Dark UniverseAlex Kurtzman‘s The Mummy gets the monster party started, but whether the world wants a world of gods and monsters, we’ll see soon enough. The movie is on track to make $40 million its opening weekend in the states, but with the power of Tom Cruise, it should perform even better overseas. If one thing seems for sure, it’s that Kurtzman’s film doesn’t lack scope, as a new behind-the-scenes featurette suggests.

Below, check out The Mummy featurette.

Edge of Tomorrow 2

No, you’re not dreaming. An Edge of Tomorrow sequel-prequel might actually happen. It still almost sounds too good to be true, but three years after the spectacular first movie came out, director Doug Liman is working on a follow-up that’ll bring back Bill Cage (Tom Cruise) and Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt). Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse wrote the Live Die Repeat and Repeat script (yes, that’s the title), which has more comedy, less battlefield action, and a new character Liman says will “steal the movie.” And interesting, he notes that the sequel will pick up right where the first movie ended.

Below, the director, who’s making Chaos Walking next, discusses the Edge of Tomorrow sequel that, in our book, can’t get made soon enough.

top gun 2 val kilmer

Top Gun is coming back to theaters with a sequel, which means the return of Tom Cruise as Maverick, the (hopeful) return of latent homoeroticism, and maybe the return of Val Kilmer‘s Iceman. At least, Kilmer says he’s ready to reprise his role for Top Gun 2.

The sequel to 1986’s Top Gun was re-confirmed by Cruise earlier this week, and while a cast and director have not yet been announced, Cruise has said that he’ll begin filming “sometime next year.” So with details for Top Gun 2 in the dark, Kilmer took to social media to make his appeal for Iceman’s return to Cruise.

Top Gun - Movies Leaving Netflix

The idea of a Top Gun 2 has been floating around Hollywood for nearly a decade. It flew through a rough patch of air following the 2012 suicide of original Top Gun director Tony Scott, but a couple of years later, Paramount and producer Jerry Bruckheimer hired The Jungle Book writer Justin Marks to rewrite the script. Star Tom Cruise is still very much involved, and now a new report indicates that the project may have finally found someone to lead this sequel back to the Danger Zone: Tron: Legacy and Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski.

The Mummy box office

Universal looks like they’re feeling pretty good about their universe of classic monsters. Long before The Mummy hits theaters and tries to get this universe started, the studio claimed two release dates – one in 2018, the other in 2019 – for two unknown monster movies. The release dates could be the Johnny Depp-led The Invisible Man, David Koep’s take on Bride of Frankenstein, or The Wolfman from writer Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners).

But do audiences want these classic monsters updated? We’ll have some idea next month when Alex Kurtzman‘s (Star Trek) film comes out, which is currently tracking to make $40 million its opening weekend.

In the early days of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the various films and characters were connected by the mysterious organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D., which was run by the enigmatic super-spy Nick Fury. And while this agency has grown less central to the films as time has gone on, we’re starting to see the MCU effect in other movies that want to build “shared universes.” Just look to Kong: Skull Island, which connects to 2014’s Godzilla through a secretive organization called Monarch.

And wouldn’t you know it? The Mummy, the first entry in a proposed “monsters universe” for Universal Studios, features another top secret organization. It’s called Prodigium and it’s run by Russell Crowe‘s Dr. Henry Jekyll and you just know that we’ll being seeing a lot of more of them, should these movies take off.
