Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018)

July 27, 2018
PG-13
Action

The best intentions often come back to haunt you.  MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time after a mission gone wrong.  Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby also join the dynamic cast with filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie returning to the helm.

This is the sixth installment in the long-running Mission: Impossible film series, which is based on the 1960s television show of the same name. The original movie was released in 1996 and was one of the biggest box office hits of the year, grossing $180.9 million domestically. Over the years, the franchise became noteworthy for bringing in new helmsmen for each entry. Brian De Palma made the first one, followed by John Woo, J.J. Abrams, Brad Bird, and Christopher McQuarrie on the next four. McQuarrie is the first person to direct two M:I films, previously calling the shots on 2015's Rogue Nation.

Fallout entered development in 2015, with McQuarrie being confirmed as director later that year. Pre-production stalled due to a salary dispute between Tom Cruise and Paramount, which was resolved in September 2016. Production officially began in April 2017, but was forced to stop in August after Cruise injured his leg while performing a stunt. Despite the setback, the studio kept Fallout on track for its summer 2018 premiere.

Teen Titans Go! To The Movies (2018)

July 27, 2018
PG
Animation

When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big!  “Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza - a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers.

It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies - everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously Super-Villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry.  The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!

Will Arnett (“The LEGO® Batman Movie”) and Kristen Bell (“Frozen”) lend their voices to the first-ever big-screen version of DC Entertainment and Cartoon Network’s animated TV show, which also stars Greg Cipes (TV’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) as Beast Boy, Scott Menville (TV’s “Spider-Man”) as Robin, Khary Payton (“The Walking Dead”) as Cyborg, Tara Strong (the “My Little Pony” franchise) as Raven, and Hynden Walch (TV’s “Adventure Time with Finn & Jake”) as Starfire, reprising their roles from the series.

The film is being directed by Aaron Horvath and Peter Rida Michail, from a screenplay by Michael Jelenic and Horvath, based on characters from DC. Michail, Will Arnett and Peggy Regan are producing, with Sam Register, Jelenic and Horvath serving as executive producers. Apart from Arnett, all are “Teen Titans GO!” series contributors.
