After months of speculation, it has officially been confirmed that Christopher McQuarrie has come aboard to direct the highly anticipated sequel to Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, currently known only as Mission: Impossible 5. Rather than announcing the news via a press release or through a trade report, the filmmaker instead decided to elegantly spread the news himself, sending out a message on Twitter reading simply: Mission: Accepted.
Tom’s Twitter has also confirmed the news.
Today marks the 30th anniversary of the release of one of Tom’s most popular movies.
‘Risky Business’ debuted August 5, 1983 and we want to celebrate it enjoying one of the most famous scenes in the history of cinema.
We’ve added screencaps from the Blu-ray behind scenes of Mission: Impossible- Ghost Protocol.
For an interview with Entertainment Weekly promoting his new movie 2 Guns, Bill Paxton talks ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ and praises Tom and director Doug Liman.
They put out an early trailer at Comic-Con, just to get people talking about it and let them know it’s coming. But to me, it doesn’t scratch the surface. That movie’s gonna be crazy wild. [Director] Doug Liman’s sensibility and Tom Cruise. This is a guy who comes prepared for work. He’s a great ringleader. He acknowledges everybody in the cast and crew. He’s a very power-of-positive-thinking kind of guy. God, he really pumped me up. He’d go, “I saw some dailies last night. You’re killing it, Paxton! You’re killing it!” I never go to dailies. “I’d say, ‘Tom, gosh, man, I’m gonna get a big head here.’ But we had a great time, and the movie is super original, and it has a great humor to it. They’ve changed the title from All You Need is Kill, which we were all partial to, but I guess from a marketing point of view, it’s a PG-13 movie. And, you know, Shakespeare said it, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”
We’ve added pics of Tom from Twitter from people who has spotted him in London today. He visited Senate House.
We’ve added extras of ‘Jac Reacher’ Blu-Ray Extra ‘When the Man Comes Around’.
Tom met one of Louis Tomlinson’s sisters in a restaurant in London yesterday. She tweeted the pic saying :’ I met Tom Cruise today he is super nice and this experience was exciting!’ Tom is in London re-shooting some scenes for ‘Edge of Tomorrow.
Connor performed at Liquid Pool Lounge at Aria on Saturday. He was last at the dayclub in April, when he spun with deejay pal Andy Caldwell.
Tom and Connor visited the America’s Cup Summer of Racing today, watching the fastest racing yachts in the world compete on San Francisco Bay.
They were the guests of Emirates Team New Zealand for its Louis Vuitton Cup race against Luna Rossa Challenge. They watched the Kiwis’ victorious race from the team’s VIP vessel, Imagine, and afterwards the Hollywood star and his adopted son suited up in full sailing gear and jumped aboard the team’s race boat, Aotearoa.
They joined the 11-man crew and joined in the sailing the 72-foot racing machine, grinding the winches that trim the rig and sails. They even took the wheel from skipper Dean Barker for a spell steering the boat.
The AC72s are the leading class of racing yachts in the world. So named for their 72-foot length, they are powered by 130-foot (40m) tall wing sails, the equivalent of a 13-story building, and capable of speeds of 44 knots (50 mph).
“We were very fortunate to have Tom Cruise and his son jump on board for a ride around San Francisco Bay. They had an absolute ball,” said Barker. “We had a nice reach back under the Bay Bridge, so Tom jumped on the handle bars (steering wheel) and did a better job than I did. He had a competition with his son to get the top speed. It was a real boost for the team to have someone like him come along.”
Tom was already spotted in San Franciso the previous night.
