Tom Cruise's Latest Mission: Impossible 6 Stunt Brings London to a Standstill

Tom Cruise's Latest Mission: Impossible 6 Stunt Brings London to a Standstill
Did you forget that Tom Cruise was in the midst of shooting Mission: Impossible 6? He proved he was far from done with this anticipated sequel just yet, as he made quite the scene running across the top of an iconic landmark in central London. And it turned out to be quite the spectacle.

Tom Cruise was shooting M:i 6 in central London over the weekend, where he engaged in one of the franchise's signature hair-raising stunts. This time, the Hollywood icon was seen running across the roof of the famous Blackfriars rail bridge. Despite icy January temperatures, the 55 year-old actor had no problem sprinting high above the Thames. All the while, a low-flying helicopter appeared to be in pursuit. Though it was in place to actual capture the stunt as it took place.

Traffic in central London was forced to a standstill, which didn't make some locals very happy. No one

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' rules four-day holiday weekend, slides 55% (update)

Sci-fi holds off three new releases in top five; The Post delivers strong limited launch.

December 26 Update: Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi held off the debuts of Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, Pitch Perfect 3 and The Greatest Showman over the four-day holiday weekend.

The four-day period saw The Last Jedi gross $99m for $395.6m as it dropped 55% against last weekend’s second highest opening weekend of all time, which looks a lot better than the tentpole’s alarming 67.5% drop over three days.

By Tuesday the film ranked as the third highest of the year-to-date in North America and was poised to pass Warner BrosWonder Woman on $412.6m. It stands a chance of finishing 2017 as the top film if it overtakes Disney’s Beauty And The Beast on $504m.

The Top Five Ving Rhames Movie Roles of His Career

Ving Rhames has the meats! Sorry, I saw that somewhere and I had to get it out. Ving Rhames has that deep, bass voice that is hard to mistake for anyone else and an acting style that kind of leans towards a more serious character more often than not. He can play a bit of comedy now and again and he can be funny, but it’s more often that you see him as a serious or seriously demented character that knows how to get physical when he needs to and otherwise just seems like the guy you obey or the

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' rules holiday weekend but slides 69%

Sci-fi holds off three new releases in top five; The Post delivers strong limited launch.

Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi held off the debuts of Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, Pitch Perfect 3 and The Greatest Showman despite an alarming 68.9% drop from last weekend’s second highest debut of all time.

The sci-fi added an estimated $68.5m to reach $365.1m after 10 days in release in North America, where it ranks as the fourth highest release of the year behind Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 on $389.8m, Wonder Woman on $412.6m, and Beauty And The Beast on $504m.

Lucasfilm’s tentpole stands at $745.4m worldwide after two sessions. All will depend on how The Last Jedi holds in the final week of the year, a holiday session where it should have enough in the tank to finish the year as the second highest release in North America.

“Everyone felt so embarrassed for me, maybe they could relate in a way,” the actress says.

10 Things About Pulp Fiction You Never Knew

10 Things About Pulp Fiction You Never Knew
It's a certified cinema classic and one of the most quotable movies ever. Two years after Reservoir Dogs, video store clerk turned auteur Quentin Tarantino turned out another masterpiece in Pulp Fiction, the 1994 movie that rescued John Travolta from the pop culture waste bin via a now iconic performance, matched in creative and artistic firepower by Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Tim Roth, Harvey Keitel, Christopher Walken, Eric Stoltz, Rosanna Arquette, Amanda Plummer, Ving Rhames, and of course, Samuel L. Jackson as the soul searching hit man Jules. Pulp Fiction still regularly plays in midnight showings at the writer/director's own New Beverly Cinema. Today we look at 10 things you never knew about Pulp Fiction.

Matt Dillon was almost Butch.

Originally Quentin Tarantino conceived of the "palooka" pugilist played by Bruce Willis as a younger up and coming boxer. He envisioned Matt Dillon in the role. But after the actor reportedly took too long to decide,

The Aquaman TV Show That Failed To Make A Splash

Neil Calloway looks at the less than successful Aquaman TV pilot from 2006…

Though we’ve seen brief glimpses of him in Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad, the release of Justice League this weekend gives cinemagoers will get their first experience of Aquaman on the big screen. It turns out he isn’t a superhero who flies around the world to a soundtrack of that Danish band who sung Barbie Girl, but rather someone who has exceptional underwater abilities.

He might not be well known to the general public, but if you’d have said Iron Man to all but the biggest comic book fan before 2008 they’d think you were talking about a particularly taxing triathlon rather than a Elon Musk like superhero. As with most comic book characters, there have been previous attempts to bring him to the screen. After a version of the character appearing in an

Film Review: ‘The Star’

Film Review: ‘The Star’
Though it probably could have gone without saying, “The Star” ends with a politely worded note to the effect that, while having fun and taking artist license, its creators strived to maintain the spirit and values of the greatest story ever told. Sure enough, “The Star” offers a playful retelling of Jesus’ nativity, as seen from the animals’ point of view, while keeping the necessary irreverence that entails to a benign minimum. As kid-friendly Christmas movies go, this one actually goes out of its way to remind what the holiday represents, which should please parents looking for something a little more sophisticated (but just barely) than the VeggieTales cartoons.

In the tradition of Robert Lawson’s appealing young-adult books “Ben and Me” (about founding father Franklin and his “good mouse Amos”) and “Mr. Revere and I” (in which Paul’s horse recounts his master’s famous ride), this CG co-production between Sony Pictures Animation and the [link

Video Game Review – Call of Duty: WWII

Shaun Munro reviews Call of Duty: WWII…

It’s not a stretch to say that the Call of Duty series has grown increasingly silly in recent years, gradually progressing from the oorah military fetishism of the Modern Warfare games into a sci-fi blockbuster franchise that, in the eyes of many fans, has spun wildly out of control.

It’s ironic, then, that the absurd has become the new norm for the franchise, and something as old-hat as a World War II setting feels paradoxically fresh and exciting. Simply, if you’ve been long-exhausted by the series’ recent obsession with exo-suits, wall-running and space battles, Call of Duty: WWII is a mostly refreshing tonic that lovingly recalls the more earnest tone of the earlier CoD games.

A big part of the appeal here is the focus on boots-on-the-ground gameplay, as is evident within seconds of beginning the game’s campaign, which
