Thanks to the magic of Thanksgiving, this week is a little shorter than all the rest, leaving us free to stuff our faces full of turkey and enjoy plenty of good movies. And since it’s a holiday weekend, you’ll probably be looking to escape the house for a few hours just so you don’t have to hear your family argue about politics. Or maybe you want to get everyone out of the house so you can enjoy a movie as a family.
Well, we’ve got you covered for a variety of cinematic occasions with a list of 28 movies to watch this Thanksgiving, and some of them you can even enjoy from the comfort of your own home. Read More »
Unfortunately, in the winter of 1997, we lost comedy star Chris Farley. The Saturday Night Live veteran was overcome by fame and glory, letting drugs and alcohol rule a life that brought laughter and joy to millions. We’ll never know just how much more comedy Farley could have brought to the masses in future film and television projects.
Thankfully though, Farley is still able to bring us a good laugh from the footage that we already have of the actor hamming it up in films like Tommy Boy and Black Sheep. And friend of the site Todd Spence decided to use Farley’s signature comedies to lighten up this weekend’s latest blockbuster, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.
Chris Farley takes the role of Tom Cruise with footage of the actor intercut with the trailer for the action sequel to humorous effect. It’s amusing throughout, but it’s the payoff at the end that makes it all worth it. See Chris Farley in Mission Impossible after the jump! Read More »
The veil was finally lifted from Mission: Impossible 5 over the weekend as a poster, teaser trailer and the film’s actual title were revealed. In unusual fashion, those elements all dropped barely 24 hours before the arrival of the film’s full trailer — moving up the release date from Christmas to July has really changed the marketing plan for this new film.
And so here’s the full Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation trailer, which previews even more of Cruise’s insane airplane stunt, and also sets up the hunt for the Syndicate, a giant anti-IMF organization. Tickets for the film are even on sale now, and Paramount is offering a deal where a ticket purchase this week comes with an HD download of any previous film in the series. Read More »
Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie dropped a little present for us on Sunday morning. They revealed the first Mission Impossible 5 trailer, along with a poster and title. That title: Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. And, actually, it’s not even the full trailer. It’s a minute-long tease for the full trailer which will hit on Monday, March 23. Still, it’s the best trailer tease you’ve ever seen. None of this 20 seconds and no footage crap.
Check out the Mission Impossible 5 trailer below. Read More »
Paramount pulled the release of Mission: Impossible 5 up from Christmas of this year to July, and the studio has done such a good job keeping a lid on the film that we don’t don’t really know anything about it. Tom Cruise returns to the lead role of Impossible Mission Force agent Ethan Hunt, and Cruise’s Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie is in the director’s chair here, too. We know there’s a big airplane stunt in the movie, and beyond that? Not much. McQuarrie took to Twitter over the weekend to answer a few questions about the movie, however, and his brief Mission: Impossible 5 update is below. Read More »
We’re getting mixed messages from Mission: Impossible 5. On one hand, Paramount moved the Tom Cruise film up from a Christmas 2016 release to a July 31 date. (No doubt partially inspired by fear of Star Wars.) But that doesn’t mean that everything is going perfectly well with the film, and reports now say the Mission Impossible 5 ending needs some work, and so the movie has taken a break from production in order to rework the ending, which “was deemed unsatisfactory.”
Update: Director Christopher McQuarrie has responded, briefly, to the report.

Tom Cruise likes to do his own stunts whenever possible, and for Mission: Impossible 5 he has gone to daredevil heights to entertain us. For the last Mission: Impossible film Cruise was suspended from the side of the Burj Khalifa, aka the tallest building in the world. And the footage, filmed with IMAX cameras, was very impressive. But one Mission: Impossible 5 stunt suggests that Cruise is ready to outdo that last going — for this sequel he was strapped to the outside of a military plane as it cruised over England at 5,000 feet.
