Editor’s note: This post contains some spoilers for “Mission: Impossible – Fallout.”
It’s a primary principle for any spy, even the ones in movies: Never get too close to anyone, lest they be used against you. For the first two films in the “Mission: Impossible” movie franchise, Imf agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) didn’t seem to have much trouble abiding by that concept. The super spy had compatriots (like long-time co-star Ving Rhames) and vague love interests, and his care for them often blindsided him (remember when Béart’s Claire Phelps double-crossed him?), but he was a trained professional who moved on once the bullets stopped flying.
The first two films in the series neatly wrapped up their primary storylines and missions, allowing Ethan to start fresh with the next one. That changed in “Mission: Impossible III,

There are three more events for the Tenth Annual Robert Classic French Film Festival happening this weekend:
Friday, March 23rd at 7:00pm – Le Samourai
In a career-defining performance, Alain Delon plays Jef Costello, a contract killer with samurai instincts. After carrying out a flawlessly planned hit, Jef finds himself caught between a persistent police investigator and a ruthless employer, and not even his armor of fedora and trenchcoat can protect him. An elegantly stylized masterpiece of cool by maverick director Jean‑Pierre Melville, “Le samouraï” is a razor-sharp cocktail of 1940s American
Starring Michel Piccoli, Jane Birkin, and Emmanuelle Béart, the film is about an artist becoming creatively reborn, as well as a dramatic documentation of the creative process.

Star Wars, Terminator 2, Fantastic Beasts and more: they all have scenes in the trailer, that never made the final film...
More often than you might think, scenes that appear in movie trailer don’t turn up in the finished film. This can leave trailer-loving audience members confused as the credits roll, wondering if they dropped off and missed something important.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers.
1040 King Duncan is killed in battle and King Macbeth succeeds him. Shakespeare fictionalizes everything later for Macbeth. So many theatrical productions and movies follow. Out damn spot!
1932 The 1932 Summer Olympics end. This is the Olympic year when gorgeous Buster Crabbe became a gold medalist (pictured left). Hollywood then snatched him right up for movie serials and action adventure franchises including Tarzan The Fearless
1945 Japan surrenders during Ww II (the six year war will last only two more weeks.) but movie makers all over the world have never stopped telling the war's infinite stories. On that same day Steve Martin is born in Waco Texas. It only takes him another 68 years to get the Oscar he totally deserved

Please note the year is 1971 and feminism is a-brewing, pleasantly knocking the closeted, recent rural-escapee for a loop. Suddenly, she's not in a field with gaseous bovines but in a bus encircled by attractive, long-haired, rowdy, activist Amazons, who care not a whit whether one is into scissoring or the missionary position. All sex is good. All male subordination of the "fairer" gender is bad. They even sing, "Arise, enslaved woman."
Suddenly, our enthralled heroine is attending political conscious-raising groups, helping to cause havoc at anti-abortion lectures,
A French film director who was an integral part of the French New Wave (or Nouvelle Vague), has died in Paris at the age of 87.
Jacques Rivette’s celebrated films include Paris Belongs To Us, Celine And Julie Go Boating in 1974 and the four-hour La Belle Noiseuse with Emmanuelle Béart, Michel Piccoli and Jane Birkin in 1991 (dealing with an elderly artist and his creative rebirth). He worked alongside the likes of François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard and Claude Chabrol in whose apartment he shot his first short film Le Coup de Berger. He was also a writer with Cahiers du Cinema magazine and assumed the editor’s chair from 1963 to 1965.
He borrowed money from the magazine to fund his first feature, Paris Belongs To Us, which was released in 1961. Its plot revolved around a group of actors
The latest instalment of the spy series not only marks the first time a director has returned for a second outing, but also a leading lady, with Emmanuelle Beart, Thandie Newton, Michelle Monaghan and Paula Patton all lasting for a single instalment, although Monaghan did make a brief cameo in Ghost Protocol.
Mission: Impossible 6 is slated for release in 2017, while Ferguson has several projects incoming before then in Despite the Falling Snow, Florence Foster Jenkins, The Girl on the Train and The Snowman.
A petition initiated by French filmmakers last week calling on the French government to do more to help the inhabitants of the Calais “jungle” in northern France is gathering momentum, with Jean-Luc Godard and Arnaud Desplechin among the signatories.
The population of the squalid camps around the port of Calais has swollen to 6,000 people over the past month, due to the rising numbers of migrants arriving in Europe, as well as tighter security measures around the port and Channel Tunnel.
French filmmakers Nicolas Philibert, Ariane Doublet, Catherine Corsini and Christophe Ruggia spearheaded the petition initiative after visiting the camps last week, kicking it off on Wednesday (Oct 21) with the support of some 800 French artists.
More than 28,000 people had signed the petition by Sunday evening (Oct 25). The objective is to garner at least 35,000 signatures.
Philibert, Doublet, Corsinin and Ruggia said they had been shocked by the “appalling living
The increasingly stately Tom Cruise/Mission: Impossible action-adventure franchise is now almost 20 years old. It has employed as directors Brian De Palma, John Woo, Jj Abrams, Brad Bird and now Christopher McQuarrie – and got through female leads including Emmanuelle Béart, Thandie Newton and Michelle Monaghan. During its existence, the competing Bourne franchise with Matt Damon has come and gone. But M:i just continues, and so does its star Tom Cruise – now 53 years old, but buff of bod and tight of ab and looking hardly older now than when he started in the series, which gave him a turbocharged boost as an A-list star in an era when such creatures were thought to be becoming extinct. Now he’s even developing Jack Reacher on the side as well.
