Will There Be A Sequel To Edge Of Tomorrow? Here's What We Know

(Welcome to Will There Be a Sequel?, a series where we answer that question and explore what comes next.)"Edge of Tomorrow" was released back in 2014 and has since been embraced as one of the better sci-fi movies in recent memory. Unfortunately, the marketing campaign was a bit jumbled, with the tagline "Live. Die. Repeat." being confused for the title, as it was at one point going to be the title. But between Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, director Doug Liman's inventive take on "Groundhog Day" wi...

The Famous Ghostbusters Moment That Was Not In The Original Script

The original "Ghostbusters" is arguably one of the most quotable movies of the 1980s – which is strange to think about, considering it's a movie about a bunch of slacker scientists who sort of stumble their way into discovering a way to capture ghosts in New York City. Among the film's many memorable lines is "don't cross the streams," a crucial piece of info that Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) gives to his ghostbusting pals and which comes back to save the day at the end of the film. (I am genuin...

Tom Cruise Didn't Want To Make Top Gun: Maverick Without Val Kilmer

The early buzz for "Top Gun: Maverick" is that the movie (the first 13 minutes that critics have seen, at least) is stellar; telling a new story while paying homage to the original 1986 film.The "Top Gun" sequel, which stars Tom Cruise reprising his role as Maverick, also has Val Kilmer coming back as his rival, Iceman. Bringing back Kilmer — who lost the use of his voice while recovering from throat cancer — in the film was apparently a requirement for Cruise. "Val Had To Be In It" In an interv...

Mission: Impossible 7 Will Have Maybe the Biggest Stunt in Movie History

Much like the Fast and Furious movies, the Mission: Impossible movies are always raising the bar. First Tom Cruise climbs up the Burj Khalifa, then hangs off the side of an airplane, then dives out of an airplane higher than should be humanly possible. And that trend will continue with Mission: Impossible 7, currently…Read more...

Say what you will about Tom Cruise, but there appears to be no other movie star working right now as dedicated to achieving memorable, death-defying stunts as he is.

Before he does that, though, Cruise is returning to his most famous franchise. He's cu...

‘Mission: Impossible 7’ Image Showcases the Return of Henry Czerny as Franchise Frenemy Kittridge

Long before Tom Cruise swung off the Burj Khalifa, strapped himself to the outside of an actual airplane, or broke his ankle while leaping from building to building, his Mission: Impossible character used a piece of explosive gum to blow up a restaurant aquarium and escape from CIA director Eugene Kittridge, memorably played by Henry Czerny. We’ve known Czerny would be returning to reprise that role 25 years later in the upcoming Mission: Impossible 7, and now writer/director Christopher McQuar...

Mission: Impossible Films Ranked

The stunt work was sensationally spectacular, and Tom Cruise did much dauntless derring-do. But what I remember most vividly about my first exposure to “Mission: Impossible” at a 1996 L.A. press junket were the heated arguments among a group of my fellow critics. Some of them were positively incensed that the heroic lead character in […]

‘Mission: Impossible’ Star Henry Czerny Looks Back on the 1996 Original and Ahead to His Return in ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ [Interview]

When Henry Czerny started appearing in Hollywood movies, you could be forgiven for thinking he had a type: the suspicious government agent. In his first mainstream movie, Clear and Present Danger, Czerny portrayed American agent Robert Ritter opposite Harrison Ford’s Jack Ryan. Soon enough, he’d face off against another swaggering American star as another suspicious spy, CIA Director Eugene Kittridge in the Tom Cruise-starring 1996 film Mission: Impossible. 25 years later, as the original film ...

‘Mission: Impossible 7’ Star Henry Czerny Reveals What Kittridge Has Been Doing for the Past 25 Years

Mission: Impossible 7 is already one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2022 if only because of the daring stunts pulled off by franchise star Tom Cruise. But there’s one element that has longtime fans of the franchise very excited, and that’s the return of actor Henry Czerny in the role of Kittridge. You may remember him: he was the director of the Impossible Mission Force in the original 1996 film who mistakenly thought Ethan Hunt was the mole that plagued the agency. So what’s Kittridg...
