Roger Ailes, the man responsible for turning Fox News into a media empire, died in 2017, and Hollywood wasted no time developing takes on his scandal-laden downfall. Annapurna Pictures recently parted ways with a star-studded movie on the subject, but today, Showtime’s Roger Ailes TV show cast just grew by four members.
Sienna Miller (Layer Cake, Lost City of Z), Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, The Orville), Simon McBurney (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), and Annabelle Wallis (The Mummy, The Conjuring) have come on board, joining the previously-announced Russell Crowe, who is playing the role of Ailes, and Naomi Watts, who is playing anchor Gretchen Carlson. Find out who each of these actors will play in the upcoming series below. Read More »
It’s the movie extra you’ve all been looking forward to: a deleted scene from The Mummy! Just kidding, I know none of you have been looking forward to it.

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.

Remember Tom Cruise, one of the stars of Cocktail? I guess he’s some kind of hotshot action star now, and apparently – get this – he does a lot of his own stunts. How about that?
I kid, I kid. If you’ve paid even the slightest amount of attention to mainstream American filmmaking over the past decade, you’ve likely seen tons of stories about Cruise hanging from the wing of an airplane as it took off or being strapped to the outside of the world’s tallest building. To the delight of audiences everywhere, he’s reclaimed his reputation from that couch-jumping incident and rebranded himself as the guy who does big stunts for real. That tradition continues with his next action flick, The Mummy, which comes out next month. We’ve already seen him do some zero gravity moves in an airplane, but now there’s a whole new featurette dedicated to Cruise’s stunt prowess. Check out The Mummy featurette below.

We can usually rely on Tom Cruise to save our world in the movies. But in The Mummy, he helps to bring about its destruction by discovering one pissed off mummy, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella) to be exact. Once again, the world will call upon Tom Cruise to save us all in Alex Kurtzman‘s film (even if it’s his fault this time), which is the first entry in the potential Universal Monster Universe.
Below, watch The Mummy featurette, which contains a decent amount of new footage from the adventure movie.

Anyone who loves Tom Cruise knows that the actor can’t help but tackle some kind of crazy new stunt for his blockbuster action movies. They’ve become a staple of the Mission: Impossible franchise, and now he’s bringing that same spectacle to The Mummy.
In the new action adventure tentpole that will mark the beginning of a Universal Monsters cinematic universe, there will be a zero gravity action sequence that takes place in a cargo plane. We’ve already gotten a taste of this sequence in the first trailer for The Mummy and the featurette that arrived shortly thereafter. Now a new behind the scenes video gives us a closer look at The Mummy zero gravity stunt. Read More »
Armie Hammer is almost performing a one-man show in Mine. The Man from U.N.CL.E. star isn’t alone in Fabio Guaglione and Fabio Resinaro‘s thriller, but he spends much of it on his own in the frame, with one foot resting not-so-comfortably on a landmine in the desert. To stay alive, he’ll have to survive the next 52 hours by staying in one place.
Below, watch the Mine trailer.

Tom Cruise brings a lot of respectability to The Mummy. More than one would maybe expect from the first entry in the potential Universal Monster Movie Universe, partly because it’s following up the disastrous Van Helsing, The Wolfman, and, a movie erased from the new world of monsters, Dracula Untold. Universal has struggled to bring their iconic monsters back to the big screen in the past, but Cruise’s involvement in this universe, especially after seeing him in the solid trailer, inspires some confidence — and maybe because you know you’re usually in for a fun time with most movies starring Tom Cruise.
Below, watch The Mummy featurette, which features footage not shown in the trailer.

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 Blinders. Read More »
