Alex Kurtzman's re-make of 'The Mummy' hits cinema screens on June 9th, 2017.
Some of the cast and crew of this summer’s upcoming blockbuster re-make of The Mummy, including its star Tom Cruise, have spoken about their experiences shooting the film.
“I grew up watching these monster movies when I was a little kid, and I remember being utterly terrified,” Cruise said in a new featurette. “What’s interesting about the way these stories are told is that you identify with these classic characters. They terrify us, yet you feel sympathy for them.”

It's hard to believe that these half a dozen massive movie names have never prevailed at the Academy Awards.
Awards season is nearly upon us, with the film industry gearing up for its annual round of back-slapping and palm-greasing, as well as honouring the most significant works that Hollywood and beyond has had to offer over the past 12 months.
However, there are a number of box office regulars and well-known faces that have never won the most prestigious prize Hollywood awards – the Best Actor or Actress Oscar. Here are half a dozen big stars who have featured in many hit movies who have, surprisingly, never collected a gong.

The soundtrack-less trailer is hilarious.
Say what you like about Tom Cruise, he doesn't do anything by halves. Thus, when he's expected to scream while falling from a plane, he really goes for it. Of course, the scream wasn't particularly effective in the recently released trailer for 'The Mummy'... until now.
Tom Cruise's scream in 'The Mummy' is epic
This week, IMAX set out to share a new trailer for the upcoming re-boot of 'The Mummy', but what followed instead was an upload of the original trailer with some key parts of the audio missing. Virtually all of the soundtrack couldn't be heard, pretty much just leaving behind all of the actors vocals and their weird noises. You might remember it's a pretty full-on clip, and Tom Cruise screaming without the help of a score is just hilarious.

New trailer gives a glimpse into this 2017 re-boot.
If you're bored with zombies and vampires by now but still need a classic monster fix, 'The Mummy' is making a comeback in a new movie starring Tom Cruise. It's a fresh new story about another wronged Ancient Egyptian figure, but with loads of explosions and cinematic craziness to go with it.
Tom Cruise stars in 'The Mummy'
All we have so far is a trailer and already it looks like it's going to be one hell of a ride. It sees Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis as military operative Nick Morton and archaeologist Jenny Halsey in a plane incident when an army craft carrying an ancient Egyptian sarcophagus is attacked by a flock of crow-like creatures. As the burning plane hurtles towards the ground, Nick releases Jenny's parachute and braces himself for impact. The next thing he knows, he has woken up in a body bag in a morgue. Strangely unscathed.

The tombs and burial chambers in Egypt have long provided fascinated discoveries and lead the world to understand incredibly important facts about ancient times. Down the generations, it's been said that the ancient Egyptian gods, deities and earthly pharaohs had powers beyond those of a normal human.
Thousands of years after the gods walked the earth, we're still as interested in the secrets the ancients held.
There are few details available about the precise plot of the new movie but here's what we do know. When a new tomb is found, work begins to excavate the structure and catalogue its contents. When a mummy's tomb is uncovered, the archaeologists can't believe their luck, wishing to protect and preserve the tomb, the army are called in and asked to transport the structure to London but whilst the freighter is in the air, the team on board find themselves - and the plane - being attacked by a vast swathe of flying creatures.

Tom Cruise once again stars as Jack Reacher in the new movie Never Go Back.
After weathering the furore over his casting as Lee Child's 6-foot-5 blond muscle man in the 2012 film Jack Reacher, Tom Cruise set out to make the character his own in the sequel, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. "I love this character," Cruise says with a smile. "I love the iconic nature of this character. I like the physicality of the character. It's fun creating the kinds of stories that he has as he goes to different places."

Cruise also liked the way the novels keep the action grounded in reality. "When you read the books you just find yourself thinking that they're really satisfying," he says. "It's like the movies I watched in the '70s, and some from the '60s, the movies that you kind of look back on. Jack is the cool loner - it's very Western, very American. And I love the fact that today, especially in this digital age, he's someone who doesn't have a phone, he's off-grid. He walks into a place and he's enormously capable but just very human."

Katie Holmes and Leah Remini are both no longer members of Scientology
Despite the fact that former power couple Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise divorced three years ago, it seems that the pair still know how to rile each other up. As controversy about Scientology continues to hit the headlines, it appears Tom is angry that ex-wife Katie has reached out to the Scientology enemy.
The former couple still appear to be at loggerheads
With Leah Rimini in the Church’s bad books following her penning a tell-all book, Trouble Maker, about her time as a Scientologist, the Mission Impossible actor has reacted badly to Katie apologising to Remini for the way she has been treated in the past.
Following her expose of her relationship with Scientology last week, Remini said that Holmes' apology statement nearly reduced her to tears.
Following her explosive interview last week about the Church of Scientology, Leah Remini has revealed that Katie Holmes’ apology for causing her any distress in the past “almost makes me want to cry” in a new TV appearance.
Remini’s sensational appearance on ‘20/20’ on Friday was one of the biggest news items of the week, and it prompted an on-air statement of regret from Holmes – which came via a written note and not from a face-to-face interview with Holmes herself – that read: “I regret having upset Leah in the past, and wish her only the best in the future.”

While on TV discussing her new autobiography, she claimed that the Church used her to attempt to recruit Jennifer Lopez.
Ahead of the release of her new memoir next week about her career and her experience with Scientology, actress Leah Remini has given an explosive new interview about the religion.
Remini, most famous for her role as Carrie Heffernan on CBS sitcom ‘The King of Queens’ from 1998 to 2007, was speaking to ABC’s ‘20/20’ on Friday night (October 30th) when she made a series of claims about the religion exploiting her and then dumping her when she had outlived her usefulness.
“Being critical of Tom Cruise is being critical of Scientology itself,” she asserted. “You are a person who is anti the aims and goals of Scientology, you are evil.”

The actress says she was ‘running from her life’ during her marriage break-up.
Nicole Kidman has spoken about her divorce from Tom Cruise and how it changed her career in Hollywood. Appearing at the Women In The World conference in London on Friday (October 9th), Kidman described how she was ‘running from her life’ during her split with Cruise.
Nicole Kidman has spoken about her divorce from Tom Cruise.
"I was running from my life at that time," Kidman said. "I wasn't able to handle the reality of my life and as an actor, you have this wonderful thing where you can go and get lost in somebody else's life and become somebody else for a period of time."
The surprise ceremony was very low-key and restricted to a small gathering of friends, reports indicate.
Tom Cruise was reportedly absent from his adopted daughter Isabella’s surprise wedding in Britain last month, a new report has suggested.
A hairdresser by profession, Isabella Cruise, 22, married her husband Max Parker on September 18th in London, according to Woman’s Day magazine, but her famous father was apparently not in attendance because she had a “limited guestlist of close friends”. She and Parker, an IT consultant, have reportedly been dating for less than a year, only being introduced through mutual friends at the start of 2015.

The low-budget horror sequel has flopped on its first weekend in cinemas, following terrible reviews.
On a typically quiet late-summer weekend dominated by holdovers, Sinister 2 has dragged itself to third place with a disappointing $10.6million opening in America.
Sinister 2, starring James Ransone, has flopped

If you read our story on Tom Cruise working with Simon Pegg on 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation', you'll know that the Hollywood star did his own stunts for the film including the seriously dangerous driving - and he was shocked at how much Pegg trusted him.
Looking at this clip - featuring the duo in said car chase - Pegg's acting talent is incredible; either that or he didn't quite trust his co-star as much as Cruise thought and was genuinely scared the whole time. We sure would be.
The latest instalment of the spy franchise, directed by Christopher McQuarrie, is out in theatres now.
It really pays to be 'Iron Man' for Robert Downey Jr.
The Avengers and Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. has topped Forbes list of the world's highest paid actors for the third year in a row, taking home a massive $80million last year. The star’s ranking was said to have be greatly helped by the Chinese box office, where Downey’s latest offering The Avengers: Age of Ultron grossed $240 million.
Robert Downey Jr has been named the world’s highest paid actor by Forbes magazine.
In the number two spot was Hong Kong born action star Jackie Chan, who raked in an impressive $50 million thanks to the release of Dragon Blade. Following Chan at number three was another somewhat surprising entrant, Vin Diesel, whose role in mega-hit Furious 7 saw him take home $47 million.

The Weekend Box Office results for 31st July-2nd August are in and the latest installment of ‘Mission Impossible’ reigns supreme.
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation has topped the U.S. Weekend Box Office (31st July-2nd August). The action film, which was released on 31st July, made $56 million in the U.S. and Canada. The film has made over $40 million more than the other newcomer in the office, Vacation, which comes in at number 2 in the Box Office chart.
The latest 'Mission Impossible' movie might do even better than studios predicted, with over $20 million pulled in on just one night.
It looks as though Tom Cruise’s latest action rampage Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is going to exceed the very good commercial performance expected of it this weekend, with the news that the thriller has made a near-record $20.3 million on its opening Friday (July 31st).
Industry insiders who have been able to access pre-release audience surveys predicted that the latest MI instalment would make approximately $40 million over its opening weekend. However, the Friday figure from nearly 4,000 theaters – doubly impressive for one that didn’t debut on a Wednesday, according to Forbes – has revised studio expectations upwards to as high as $52 million.
Cruise as Ethan Hunt in 'Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation'
Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation is likely to top the box office this weekend
At age 53, Tom Cruise shows no signs of slowing down, still doing his own stunts in the latest instalment of the Mission: Impossible franchise, which he has also been producing since the first film in 1996.
This summer's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation is written and directed by Oscar-winner Christopher McQuarrie, who also worked with Cruise on Valkyrie, Jack Reacher and Edge of Tomorrow. He brings a more grounded touch to the series, including stunts that feel almost frighteningly realistic.
Continue reading: Mission: Impossible 5 Pushes Tom Cruise To New Heights
Writer-director Christopher McQuarrie brings a dark and gritty tone to this larger-than-life franchise. Along with a constant stream of barbed humour, the film has an enjoyably knotted mystery plot and action set-pieces that feel like they're grounded in the real world. It's a terrific shift into earthy believability for a series of movies that has previously indulged in gleefully incoherent narratives and exaggerated explosive chaos.
Right from the start, our hero Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is an outsider. As he searches for a shady assassin (Sean Harris) and his mythical organisation The Syndicate, Ethan's Impossible Mission Force is being dissolved by the US government. CIA Director Hunley (Alec Baldwin) absorbs the IMF team, but tech genius Benji (Simon Pegg) secretly helps Ethan, enlisting Luther (Ving Rhames) and William (Jeremy Renner) as well. Soon, all three are gallivanting from Vienna to Morocco and back to London, as Ethan works with double or perhaps triple agent Ilsa (Rebecca Ferguson) to prove that The Syndicate exists and stop its nefarious plan.
The film plays out like an edgy James Bond adventure, as Ethan works with a possibly dangerous woman in exotic locations in pursuit of some very shadowy baddies. McQuarrie's script is unusually lucid for this genre, piecing together the various elements expertly, building a genuine sense of tension without ever letting things tip over into overblown silliness. The chase sequences are remarkably rough and unpredictable, avoiding digital trickery to create moments that are jaw-droppingly authentic. As usual, we can tell that Cruise does his own stunts; the opening hanging-from-an-airplane scene is awesome, and a helmet-free motorbike chase looks even more perilous. With the IMF disbanded, it's never quite clear how Ethan funds his one-man operation, but he has a terrific supply of cool gadgets stashed all over Europe.

If Cruise is considering popping the question to his new personal assistant, he might not get the answer he wants, new reports indicate.
Much has been made of Tom Cruise’s close relationship with his new personal assistant Emily Thomas, 31 years his junior, but recent rumours that he’s considering asking her to marry him may now be scotched with the revelation that she already has a boyfriend.
53 year old Cruise is reportedly “smitten” with 22 year old Brit Thomas, whom he hired as his PA before filming his new blockbuster Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, and the pair have been seen to be very close on the set of the movie.

It's been nearly twenty years but it seems people still can't get enough of the 'Mission: Impossible' movies, especially Tom Cruise. Returning as Ethan Hunt in the fifth instalment of the spy franchise 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation', he opens up about stunts - and how they don't seem to be getting any easier.
