Tom Cruise Wants You To Turn Off Motion Smoothing Feature On Your TVs

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

You may not notice it at first, but there is a feature on your TV that may prevent you from watching films in the best quality available. It is called motion smoothing, and the best way to describe it is that it makes what you are watching look like a soap opera. What it does is artificially increase the frame rate to a higher speed, so it forcefully inserts frames into the film so that there is no blur.

A lot of filmmakers have rallied against this feature and have been trying their best to work with TV manufacturers to get it off. While general audiences may not care for it at first, it looks like the anti-motion smoothing movement needed a bit more star power. Enter, Tom Cruise. The Mission: Impossible actor and Mission: Impossible – Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie recently released a video to try to bring this to the public’s attention in hopes that they can convince fans of their film, and any other films, to watch them in the best available quality. Check out their video below.

David Goyer Addresses Controversial Man Of Steel Ending

Warner Bros. has put another Superman film on the back burner. The film has struggled to get even a sequel announcement and now that Henry Cavill will no longer play Superman, it seems very unlikely we will ever get a Man of Steel 2. The only possible person who could have prevented this all from happening was Mission: Impossible – Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie. The filmmaker had worked with Cavill on the latest Mission: Impossible film, and even talked to the actor about a possible sequel. However, nothing came of it.

But this wouldn’t be the first time that he has been approached to direct a DCEU film. A new interview also reveals that he was also in the mix to direct Green Lantern. More on the report below.

As promised, Paramount has released our first look at Mission: Impossible – Fallout with a Super Bowl spot and a full trailer.

Mission: Impossible

Don’t let his age fool you, Tom Cruise has been putting himself through a lot of hurt to bring a sense of realism to his films. That means he does his own stunts, even if those stunts risk his life. We’ve seen him scaling the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa building in Dubai in Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Then he hung onto the side of a plane in Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation. So what’s next for him in Mission: Impossible 6? Well, apparently it is a sequence that he has spent a year training for.

Ben Mendelsohn in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

As many of you recall, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story went through a series of reshoots last summer. During the course of that time, many were concerned about the timing of these reshoots and script rewrites. Naturally, big budget blockbusters like Rogue One will go through reshoots just to work out any issues the film may have. In the long run, these reshoots helped the film, as it quickly became the third highest grossing film of 2016 in just a matter of a few short weeks.

Now the subject of these reshoots has popped up again, as many are wondering what scenes were reshot and what scenes were rewritten. Of course, now is the perfect time to ask about it considering that the film is practically behind us. Find out more about what Rogue One editors John Gilroy and Colin Goudie had to say about those scenes in the full story below.

Star Wars Rogue One X-Wings

Apparently plenty of you rebelled over the weekend as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was the number one film, grossing over $290 million worldwide. Many critics were overjoyed by Lucasfilm’s first Star Wars spinoff praising it for being new by mixing in the old — the new being focusing on the untold story of how the plans to the Death Star were stolen, the old being seeing digitized classic characters from the original trilogy. But the old also included some unused footage – that many of us didn’t even notice at the time – from the original 1977 film Star Wars: A New Hope. Check out the full story below. Minor spoilers follow. There’s your only warning.
