According to Variety, “Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation” is only tracking to open at $40M at the box office, which would make it the weakest of the Tom Cruise franchise. I’m not counting the previous film “Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol” though because it had a platform release.
This figure seems really low to me, especially because the previous film was so well received, both critically and commercially.
From what we've seen so far, Ben Affleck will be giving us a Batman/Bruce Wayne unlike any of his predecessors; however when Ben Affleck was first offered the role of Batman in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE he initially thought that he would not be the right fit for the role due to his age.
I watched it recently because of the high praise it has gotten. I enjoyed it and found it entertaining, but I failed to see what sets it apart. I haven't watched much anime so maybe I don't know what to look for. Spirited Away was number ten in the "1001 greatest films off all time thread.
"Edge of Tomorrow" didn't really blow up at the box office last year, but it has a lot of fans, and deservedly so. The film's star, Tom Cruise, had a lot of fun making the movie. So much, in fact, that he came up with an idea for a sequel.
There's a new "Ghostbusters" movie in the works, and, no, I'm talking about writer/director Paul Feig's all female remake that's hitting theaters next summer. What I'm talking about is the other Ghostbusters movie starring Christ Pratt and Channing Tatum that has been rumored (and denied) for a while. MTV caught up with writer Drew Pearce at the New York premiere of "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation," and asked him if the rumors of his involvement in a second "Ghostbusters" movie are true." 'I’ve finished my work on that in the last couple weeks,' Pearce said.
