Mission: Impossible Fallout

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.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout header image

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.

Quentin Tarantino

There’s been a lot of speculation that Quentin Tarantino‘s next project would revolve around Charles Manson and his murders. But there hasn’t been anything to verify it or at least give us a hint that it would be about the infamous cult leader. Now it appears that all the reporting and speculation has been wrong. Well, at least not entirely wrong.

Based on a new interview that director gave, Tarantino’s developing film would be about 1969, the year when the Manson Family murders started to appear in headlines. There is also word that multiple studios are now vying for the right to distribute the untitled film. More on the story below.

Universal’s Dark Universe May Be Dead As Key Figures Start To Leave It Behind

Dark Universe title card

Let’s face it, Universal’s Dark Universe was a very ambitious plan that no one really was on board for. Though contemporary takes on the classic Universal monsters sounded like a good idea on the surface, the results were anything but that. It all started with The Mummy, the Tom Cruise-starring vehicle that was supposed to launch the universe. The film performed well-below expectations, and what followed made things even worse for the potential universe. Bride of Frankenstein, directed by Bill Condon and starring Javier Bardem as the Monster and possibly Angelina Jolie as the title character, had been put on hold. Reports stated that it was to fix some of the script issues. While that may be true, it was a sign that things weren’t going well. And this latest bit may be the final nail in the coffin.

According to a new report, the Dark Universe may be dead as key figures like Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan are now leaving it behind, forcing Universal to rethink the interconnected monster world that they are creating. More on the story below.

The Mummy reboot Tom Cruise Annabelle Wallis

Universal’s Dark Universe will reintroduce those classic Universal Monster films that terrified us as kids to a younger generation of audiences who might not be familiar with them. In this world of gods and monsters, the shadowy organization Prodigium works hard to find, examine, and contain these evil monsters. With Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy opening in theaters this weekend, the film opens the door to an all new terrifying universe where those same gods and monsters that used to scare us now exist and live amongst us today.

In The Mummy, the first Dark Universe installment, Annabelle Wallis plays Jenny, an archeologist who uses two soldiers of fortune, Nick (Tom Cruise) and Vail (Jake Johnson), to find an ancient sarcophagus that has sealed away one of the most powerful evils on earth, Princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella). But Nick’s reckless behavior unleashes that evil, and it is up to Nick, Jenny, and the rest of Prodigium to find out how to stop Ahmanet from succeeding with her plans to complete her ritual.

We were fortunate enough to participate in a phone interview with Wallis prior to the film’s release, where she talked about what it was like to film with Tom Cruise, the physicality of the shoot, doing her own stunts, what monsters scared her as a kid, and more. Find out what she had to say here below.

Jake Johnson in The Mummy

For New Girl star Jake Johnson, The Mummy was a way for him to expand his career into action films, though he still retains his small-screen witty and charming sense of humor. In Universal’s new reboot, the actor plays Vail, a soldier of fortune, who joins Tom Cruise’s Nick Morton on global quests to raid tombs and swipe treasures for profits. However, they come across one tomb they should have never unearthed, and without realizing it, they release a powerful evil bent on reclaiming what was once her’s.

We were recently invited to participate in a phone interview with Johnson to talk about his experience on set of The Mummy, his training, doing his own stunts, and more. Check out what he had to say here below.

“Welcome to a new world of gods and monsters.”

If you’re a moviegoer in the year 2017, odds are you’re familiar with the concept of a “shared cinematic universe.” Whether it’s the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s The Avengers or the DC Extended Universe’s upcoming Justice League, we understand that these franchises are built on standalone stories set within the same continuity, leading to crossover events and team-up films.

The idea of a shared cinematic universe came into being over 70 years ago with the emergence of Universal Monsters. Following their popular silent films, 1923’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame and 1925’s The Phantom of the Opera, Universal Studios began developing talkies based on other classic horror characters. 1931’s Dracula and Frankenstein got things started, followed by The Mummy (1932), The Invisible Man (1933), 1935’s Bride of Frankenstein, and The Wolf Man (1941).
