With the past two films in the Mission: Impossible franchise — 2011’s Ghost Protocol and 2015’s Rogue Nation — Tom Cruise has upped the insane-stunt ante.

Writer-director Christopher McQuarrie recently spoke to Empire‘s podcast about trying to top that Rogue Nation opener.
Tom Cruise has announced the first trailer for 2017’s horror spectacular ‘The Mummy’ will be released on Sunday. The ‘Mission: Impossible’ star revealed the news on social media along with a 15-second teaser for the forthcoming trailer featuring brief looks at Russell Crowe as Dr. Jekyll, Sofia Boutella as The Mummy, and Annabelle Wallis as Jenny Halsey.
The five biggest hits of 2001 included the first Harry Potter, ‘Shrek’ and ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’ and ‘Rush Hour 2’ – with nary an A-lister between them (audiences didn’t go to see ‘Shrek’ because of the names in the voice cast and while Jackie Chan is a huge star in Asia he remained a comparatively niche name to Western viewers). Tom Cruise’s ‘Vanilla Sky’ barely scraped to $100m and new (cheaper) stars were beginning to emerge and stake their claim like Matt Damon, George Clooney, Vin Diesel and Reese Witherspoon.
‘Edge of Tomorrow’ director Doug Liman has spoken about what the next film will entail and how it’ll continue from the time travelling first.

After being asked, “Have you ever thought about making a superhero movie?
Cobie Smulders was not in the first Jack Reacher movie, but she’s already looking like a highlight of the upcoming sequel, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. The How I Met Your Mother/Avengers actress plays Susan Turner, the commanding officer of the titular vigilante’s old unit in the Army Military Police Corps. In the exclusive clip above, Turner ain’t taking no mess from Reacher (Tom Cruise), even as he turns up to bust her out of military lockdown.
It wouldn’t be a Tom Cruise movie if his stunt double was doing all the work. Still, Cruise totally topped himself by daring to dangle off an airplane as it took off.
If you’re feeling the need for some speed, then you’re in luck: During the Berlin press day for Terminator Genisys last week, Skydance Productions’ David Ellison and Dana Goldberg provided some intel on the status of the sequel to the 1986 fighter-ace blockbuster Top Gun. “Justin Marks is writing the screenplay right now,” said Ellison (via Collider). “He has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what fighter pilots in the Navy have turned into today.
Forget rock climbing, scaling skyscrapers and flying on the wing of a jumbo jet. Tom Cruise’s most breath-taking feat involves not taking a breathing at all. Cruise, the A-list daredevil who’s known for taking on the most death-defying stunts for his movies, told USA Today that the incredible underwater scene that we saw earlier this week in the new Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation trailer was done all in one take, a stunt that required him to defy the normal bounds of the human body.
