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.”

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 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”.

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.

So, scientology. Let's talk about that.
Scientology has remained on the cooky fringes of pop culture for the better part of the last decade, but no more! HBO has apparently taken on the task of unpacking and examining up close this most Los Angeles of religious practices in a new documentary, premiering this Sunday. Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief apparently aims to uncover the roots and development of the Church of Scientology – and its decline, according to some.
Apparently it's more than just that strange thing Tom Cruise was into a while back.
Directed by Alex Gibney, the documentary does not reveal too much beyond what’s already been published in Lawrence Wright’s eponymous book, the LA Times’ review states. Meanwhile, the Church of Scientology is none too excited about the flick’s premiere. In fact, they seem to be doing everything in their power to discredit the project.

Hunt plans to track down, expose and destroy The Syndicate through any means necessary. To that end, he recruits his old friends and colleges from the IMF, and plans to take the fight to them. Even if the mission is impossible.

Tom Cruise was seen filming a scene from the upcoming fifth instalment of the 'Mission Impossible' franchise near the Tower of London.

Tom Cruise is on a box-office role at the moment, and Mission Impossible 5 should continue the run
In its new slot, Mission Impossible 5 will open against the Point Break remake with Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez and Antoine Fuqua's boxing movie Southpaw, with Jake Gyllenhaal. However, Mission Impossible's biggest threat could be a release that arrives the following week - Terminator Genisys. Paramount executives wouldn't be enthralled with the idea of surrendering the inevitable box-office top spot after just one week, though it would be devastating for Warner Bros if its action movie is unable to unseat a movie in its second week.

Will a title change result in a better DVD release than the film's box?
Edge of Tomorrow may just have been the unexpected hit of the summer, but Warner Bros. aren't done with the surprises yet - they seem to have the film's name to its more catchy tagline Live Die Repeat for the DVD/Blu-Ray release.
Take a look at the box art, and you'll see those words emblazoned, capitalized in yellow. They take precedence on the cover, rather than the film's actual title, which is actually pretty bland and uninspiring compared to the film itself, which scored big the critics.

Which films were on the brink of a completely different lead star?
With Robert Downey Jr fitting so perfectly as likeable irritant Tony Stark, Christian Bale slipping so easily into the tortured billionaire psyche of Bruce Wayne and Daniel Day-Lewis transforming himself into the epitome of Abraham Lincoln, it's hard to believe that for all of the above roles, there were some serious previous contenders. But contenders there were and some of the not entirely savoury.
Tom Cruise as Iron Man
The pint-sized action hero made it his mission impossible to kick ass as IMF agent, Ethan Hunt, but could he have romanced Pepper Potts in quite the same way as Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man? It seems like we very nearly found out with Cruise at one point in serious contention to play the arrogant but entertaining genius.
