It’s time for a second trailer for Top Gun – Maverick; an action / drama where Tom Cruise’s Top Gun (1986) character teaches new students at the United States Navy’s elite fighter weapons school as they compete to be the best…

Additional key cast includes Miles Teller, Jon Hamm, Ed Harris…

I’m starting to wonder, how many of Cruise’s movies has him riding a motorbike? Probably at least half?

My guess is that Hamm’s character is far from pleased that Maverick is back. The rivalry should be interesting.

Jennifer Connelly, Glen Powell, Val Kilmer, Jean Louisa Kelly, Lewis Pullman and Manny Jacinto also star.

Top Gun – Maverick Release Dates: July 2nd, 2021 (US)…

Top Gun (1986), an action / drama about students at the United States Navy’s elite fighter weapons school – competing to be the best in the class finally has a sequel.

Directed by Joseph Kosinski, key cast includes Tom Cruise, Jennifer Connelly, John Hamm and Ed Harris…

Images of Cruise in aviators and a leather jacket while standing by by a plane. That’s really all I knew about Top Gun. It’s all I knew until I looked up the above original synopsis and as this trailer played, it occurred to me just how much fun Cruise must have making all his movies. He loves planes, motorcycles, speed… In fact, I’m almost certain that he’s not acting in the main picture on this post.

May you also have a passion or passions that makes you smile as broadly.

Glen Powell, Miles Teller, Val Kilmer, Jean Louisa Kelly, Lewis Pullman and Manny Jacinto also star.

Top Gun – Maverick Release Dates: December 23rd, 2020 (US)…

MISSION – IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT (2018): The Things I Liked…

I took a moment to remember how much fun I had watching Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015), before sitting down to Tom Cruise’s latest movie, Mission Impossible – Fallout.

The action sequences in Fallout are impressive, well-choreographed physical feats. You know, because it’s a Tom Cruise movie. Yet there was one moment at the beginning in the scene with the plutonium that felt too obvious as an action movie plot device – due to the way it was executed.  It was unfortunately a moment that made me feel that little bit less enthused about the rest of the film. 

As the story progressed, I was adequately engaged but whilst also simultaneously concluding that I probably need to give this franchise a break. That way when I return in some years, it will all feel kind of fresh and new again.

Even though I definitely had more fun with Rogue Nation, Fallout is still a good movie. It’s just unfortunate that for me personally, more than any specific action sequence or scene, the most memorable thing about director Christopher McQuarrie’s film is that it helped me realise what a truly great face Rebecca Ferguson actually has. A totally random observation, I know. Yet I’m quite sure, thoroughly accurate.

Watch Mission Impossible – Fallout because it’s good. Who knows, it may even be your favourite.

Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson and Simon Pegg are back for M:I 6; a.ka. Mission – Impossible – Fallout.

Directed by Christopher McQuarrie and featuring new cast member Henry Cavill, Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his Impossible Mission Force (IMF) team are called  upon to race against time after a mission gone wrong…

This is yet another fun-filled Mission: Impossible trailer. I’m ready for all the action.

I very much enjoyed Mission: Impossible 5 – Rogue Nation and this one looks like it’s going to be, at the very least equally thrilling, fun and action filled.

Alec Baldwin,Angela Bassett, Sian Brook and Vanessa Kirby also star.

The latest Tom Cruise movie American Made is a 1980s set story about a pilot who lands 2 jobs; one for the CIA and the other as a drug runner in the south. Directed by Doug Liman, Domhnall Gleeson, Caleb Landry Jones and Jesse Plemons also star…

I’m tuning in because this trailer looks good and I’m excited to see Cruise play a man of such questionable character. I also want to watch because it’s Tom Cruise, a.k.a great actor and excellent talk show host guest, especially on The Graham Norton Show. I’m also a massive Graham Norton fan. I digress.

American Made Release Dates: August 25th, 2017 (UK); August 29th, 2017 (US)…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of  The Mummy (2017).

Directed by Alex Kurtzman, new fantasy / adventure The Mummy stars Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella and Russell Crowe.

It’s the story of an ancient princess whose awakening from her crypt  leads to…

Teaser Trailer

Official Trailer

My guess would be that this The Mummy, has nothing to do with the Rachel Weisz and the Brendan Fraser The Mummy of 1999 but I can’t be sure.

I’ll be watching because I loved Sofia Boutella as Gazelle in Kingsman – The Secret Service (2014).

Courtney B. Vance, Marwan Kenzari, Annabelle Wallis and Jake Johnson also star.

The Mummy Release Dates: June 9th, 2017 (US & UK)…

JACK REACHER – NEVER GO BACK (2016): New Trailer Starring Tom Cruise & Cobie Smulders

Look closely at the above photo. What a perfectly civil and friendly exchange the people in the shot seem to be having, right? Now watch the trailer below…

In Jack Reacher – Never Go Back, Tom Cruise returns as the highly capable homicide investigator, Jack Reacher – except this time he’s the accused.

I’m still yet to watch the original movie, Jack Reacher (2012) – though clearly, it’s time I did. Even more so since I love badass moves like the one with the care window. The last time I got excited about an impressive and swift movie magic manoeuvre was thanks to Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer (2014).

I’ll be tuning in because of Tom Cruise and his badass ways. Still, it’s probably worth mentioning that Cobie Smulders, Robert Knepper and Aldis Hodge also star, 

Jack Reacher – Never Go Back Release Dates: October 21st, 2016 (US & UK), November 3rd, 2016 (GER)…
