Mission: Impossible 7 Director Chose Tom Cruise Over Making a DC Movie

Mission: Impossible 7 Director Chose Tom Cruise Over Making a DC Movie
Mission: Impossible 7 director Christopher McQuarrie reportedly passed on directing a DC project. Following the release of Mission: Impossible - Fallout last summer, which was one of the biggest blockbusters of 2018, not to mention the critical acclaim, McQuarrie became a hot commodity, with several major studios trying to court him with major projects. Warner Bros. was apparently at the top of the list and they were trying to use their stable of DC Comics characters to lure him in.

We recently learned that Paramount ultimately was the studio that managed to court Christopher McQuarrie, by getting him to sign on to write and direct the next two Mission: Impossible movies, which will shoot back-to-back and be released in 2021 and 2022 respectively. In one of the reports regarding that news, it was revealed that Warner Bros. "tried to seduce him with DC projects." Unfortunately for them, that didn't work and the filmmaker decided

‘Fallout’ Director Christopher McQuarrie to Write, Direct Next 2 ‘Mission: Impossible’ Films

‘Fallout’ Director Christopher McQuarrie to Write, Direct Next 2 ‘Mission: Impossible’ Films
Christopher McQuarrie is returning to Tom Cruise’s death-defying franchise, signing on to write and direct the next two films in the series, according to Paramount Pictures.

Cruise additionally tweeted that the next two “Mission: Impossible” films will arrive in summer of 2021 and summer of 2022.

The films are expected to shoot back-to-back, in an attempt to capitalize on the success of the most recent installment, “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” which McQuarrie directed. That film, in which Cruise reprised his role of Ethan Hunt while one-upping the stunts and sets to new heights, brought in $791.1 million worldwide on a reported budget of $178 million, according to Box Office Mojo.

McQuarrie first took the reins of the franchise in 2015 with “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” which pulled in $682.7 million worldwide.

Dave Bautista Joins Director Denis Villeneuve's New Dune Film Adaptation

Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) is the latest actor to join the cast of director Denis Villeneuve’s new adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune.

Bautista joins the previously cast Timothee Chalamet, who is taking on the lead role of Paul Atreides. Then there’s Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible - Fallout), who is said to be playing Atreides’ mother, Lady Jessica.

Villeneuve and Bautista previously worked together on the film Blade Runner 2049, so it’s not surprising that they would work together again on this film. There’s no word on who Bautista will be playing in the movie, but here’s the synopsis:

Set in the distant future, Dune follows Paul Atreides, whose family assumes control of the desert planet Arrakis. As the only producer of a highly valuable resource, jurisdiction over Arrakis is contested among competing noble families. After Paul and his family are betrayed, the story explores themes of politics,

Ofcs Winners

by Nathaniel R

Mission: Impossible - Fallout was one of only 2 films to win multiple prizes from the Ofcs that was not on their top ten list (the other was Black Panther)

The Online Film Critics Society (a couple of Tfe's contributors are among their 283 members) have announced their winners for their 22nd annual awards.  Alfonso Cuarón's Roma continues its critical dominance by taking 4 prizes including both best foreign film and best film. Other multiple winners include Black Panther, Mission: Impossible - Fallout, If Beale Street Could Talk, First Reformed, and Hereditary. Four films on their top ten list were shut out of winning any prize: The Favourite,  You Were Never Really Here, Eighth Grade, and Suspiria...  five if you count their #2 film BlacKkKlansman  but we figure the lifetime achievement award for Spike Lee covers that one.

‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Alec Baldwin, Sean Harris, Angela Bassett, Vanessa Kirby, Michelle Monaghan, Wes Bentley | Written and Directed by Christopher McQuarrie

[Note: With Mission: Impossible - Fallout now on DVD and Blu-ray, here's a reposting of our review from the films cinematic release]

The Mission: Impossible franchise returns after a three-year absence from Ethan Hunts last escapade in cinemas with the highly profitable predecessor Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation released in 2015. Continuing directly on from Rogue Nation, a series first, (though the series has maintained a coherent thread throughout the films since the closing scenes of Mission: Impossible 3 back in 2006) brings a series of interconnected variables that were key to its success and who have returned to the fold in this sequel – director Christopher McQuarrie, supporting cast member Rebbeca Ferguson as Ilsa Fraust, and Sean Harris playing the villainous role of Solomon Lane.

Honest Trailer for Mission: Impossible - Fallout, A Deadly Game of Stunt Chicken

The latest episode of Honest Trailers puts the heat on Mission: Impossible - Fallout, and this might be one of the best ones that they’ve released in awhile. It’s pretty damn funny.

The promo pokes fun at the fact that one day Tom Cruise will probably die making one of these movies by trying to pull off a crazy-ass stunt. It also jokes about how no one really knows what in the hell is going on, points out characters from past Mission: Impossible films have just disappeared, and also compares aspects of the movie to other films like Star Trek and The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.

Anyway, this is an entertaining Honest Trailer, and I hope you enjoy it!

Watch Tom Cruise's Impassioned PSA About the Dangers of Motion Smoothing

Watch Tom Cruise's Impassioned PSA About the Dangers of Motion Smoothing
Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie are here to warn movie lovers about a danger they're very likely unaware of. In a newly posted video PSA, the duo behind Mission: Impossible - Fallout have teamed up once again to warn us about motion smoothing on modern HDTVs. This unfortunate and often default setting on TVs is something many people don't even know exists, but can make modern movies look terrible. Cruise and McQuarrie are here to help.

In the video, which was shared by Tom Cruise on Twitter, he explains that most TVs have something known as "Video interpolation," more commonly known as motion smoothing, which The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson once referred to as "liquid diarrhea.". It's also been dubbed the "soap opera effect," given that it makes HD, big-budget movies look a lot like cheaply made daytime soap operas. Christopher McQuarrie explains it like this in the PSA.

Tom Cruise Would Like a Word About Your HD Settings

Tom Cruise is currently shooting Top Gun: Maverick, but he is worried. Very, very worried, you guys. You see, Mission: Impossible - Fallout just came out on DVD and Blu-ray (it has been on iTunes and Amazon for a couple weeks), and he thinks you might not get the optimum viewing experience. And that is unacceptable. The great thing about Tom Cruise is that he loves his fans, and he Loves movies, and he wants to fix that for you. So he and Christopher McQuarrie got together and shot this video to teach us all about the dangers of video interpolation (the way he spits out “interpolation” is maybe my favorite movie of the year).

As you hopefully all know, HD televisions come with a feature that is often called "motion smoothing" turned on. It makes sports look really good, and it makes movies look desperately bad. Like, the first time I saw it,

Tom Cruise Aims His Top Gun at a New Enemy: Motion Smoothing (Video)
Tom Cruise didn’t risk life and limb for you to see “Mission: Impossible — Fallout” on a TV that makes it look like a soap opera, and he wants to let you know that he’s fighting to change this.

In a new video posted from the set of “Top Gun: Maverick,” Cruise and “Fallout” director Christopher McQuarrie gave a public service announcement of sorts about “motion smoothing,” a setting on TVs that adds artificial frames to increase the frame rate of broadcasts to 60 frames per second. That’s great for sports broadcasts, but for movies, which are still framed at 24 frames per second, it makes it look like they are being played at 1.5x speed.

Beautiful, Joyous Video Compilation of the Best Movies of 2018

It’s that time of year when film critics the world over round up their lists of the best movies of the year. IndieWire’s David Ehrlich has done the same, but with a twist. Every year, instead of making a list with a dutiful blurb about each film, Ehrlich cuts together a video combining clips from all his favorite films of the year, counting down from his 25th favorite to the single best movie of the year! (In his opinion.)

Between the clips and the (genius) music selections, Ehrlich’s love of cinema comes through in spades, and the result is a joyous celebration of everything we love — the sights, the sounds, the emotions, the fun! — about the movies.

Ehlrich throws up a mild spoiler warning that the intro section uses footage from near the end of Annihilation, so if you don’t wanna know, I guess skip that
