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.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout may be the sixth installment of the film franchise, but for something that has been around for the better part of 20 years, it manages to find new and inventive ways to raise the stakes and stay fresh. Tom Cruise reprises his role as IMF agent Ethan Hunt, the fearless spy who is willing to risk his own life to see that the mission gets done.

Miles Teller To Play Son Of Goose In Top Gun 2

Original Top Gun stars Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer are returning for Top Gun 2, but now a newcomer is joining the cast.

It’s being reported that Whiplash star Miles Teller has signed on for the sequel, which is officially titled Top Gun: Maverick. But while he wasn’t in the original—in fact, he hadn’t even been born when the original was released—he is playing a character very much tied to the original. Teller will be playing the protege of Cruise’s Maverick, and the son of Maverick’s co-pilot in the original, Goose, who was played by Anthony Edwards.

As promised, Paramount has released our first look at Mission: Impossible – Fallout with a Super Bowl spot and a full trailer. Tom Cruise, who reprises his role as agent Ethan Hunt, reunites with his Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation director Christopher McQuarrie. And based on the film’s poster, which debuted last week, the sequel will live up to the death-defying stunts that the MI films are largely known for. Remember how Cruise scaled the world’s tallest building, or clung on for dear life on the side of an aircraft while in midair? Well, the actor is now taking it one step further by dangling from a helicopter. Check it out here below.

Releasing the first trailer for a blockbuster film during the Super Bowl isn’t a completely new strategy. But it is one that will get the most eyes considering that it is one of the most watched games on the planet. And with companies spending up to $5 million for each commercial, you can bet that each studio is going to put their best – or at least blockbustery – film out there. And to get ahead of that, some, like Paramount, are releasing teaser posters to generate some interest.

The first poster for Mission: Impossible – Fallout has been released. The film is the sixth installment of the long-running franchise, which sees Tom Cruise reprising his role as Ethan Hunt once more. Check out the poster below.
