Hey guys, Jana here,

Though safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia, and terrors that defy human comprehension.

Hey guys, Jana here,

I love Universal’s monster movies and I couldn’t have been more thrilled when I heard the company was rebooting the films into huge tentpole events all the while adding more depth to the classic monster universe. First up for renovation was ‘The Mummy‘ with Tom Cruise attached. Say what you will about him personally, or even religiously, but the man can carry a film and I’m nothing but excited for it. I suppose Universal hopes others feel that way, and have gifted us a little teaser to give us a small taste of what this movie can be.

Hey guys, Jana here,

GOLDEN GLOBES TOM CRUISE WITH AWARD

Universal has made no secret about their wanting to re-launch their original monster universe. You know, The Mummy, Dracula, Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, all the favorites, and why not? These are great stories that can be excellent every time they’re retold. What will make the difference now, besides having a damn good special FX team, is the star. You’ve got to have some massive star-power to anchor a film of this magnitude, especially if it’s the first of their reboots on the monster series, they want it to go off with a global bang.

Hi, Bryan Here…

“Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: You got the wrong guy. Then he says: Get Reacher for me. And sure enough, ex-military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. He knows this shooter-a trained military sniper who never should have missed a shot.”

Hi, Bryan Here….

Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman jus signed an exclusive two year deal with Universal where they are set to produce a few films for the studio.  Orci and Kurtzman were the screenwriters for J.J. Abrams’ ‘Star Trek’ reboot back in 2009.  According to a press release that came out today, Orci and Kurtzman are rebooting ‘The Mummy’ franchise (as we previously reported), and a Van Helsing reboot starring Tom Cruise.  Press release below.

Hi Bryan Here….

Morgan Freeman and Tom Cruise will be starring alongside in ‘Oblivion’.  Directed by Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy), ‘Oblivion’ follows Cruise who is  the last man on a post-apocalyptic and nearly uninhabitable Earth, who stays behind to repair ships that hunt down and blast a virulent alien species.  And Freeman will play a vital part of the film, but that role is known at this time.

Hi Bryan Here….

So it has been a few years since the J.J. Abrams directed Mission Impossible 3 film which was actually really good.  Phillip Seymour Hoffman did an amazing job in the film, and Tom Cruise was fun to watch.  This film looks to amp up everything from the 3rd film to the 11th degree, but is that a smart move?  Only time will tell.  I hope you enjoy the trailer.  I hated the pink/eminem song in it, but when they got that Mission Impossible theme in there, I admit, I got giddy.  The film opens in December of this year.

Back in 1992, Tom and Jack worked on a film called “A Few Good Men” which that famous line still gets quoted today.  Both of those actors were superb in that film.


Now it seems they might be working together again.  In a comedy.


The film is called “El Presidente” and is written by Dan Goor, who has written for The Daily Show and Conan.  The film will be about “a dedicated Secret Service agent assigned to protect a bumbling and degenerate ex-president.”


Cruise would play the agent of course and Warner Bros. has put an offer out to Jack to play the ex-president.


“The story follows an overly-committed Secret Service agent who is assigned to guard the country’s worst former president, a bumbling sleaze. It’s a mundane and boring job — until there’s a threat made on the ex-president’s life, forcing the duo to go on the run together.”


I wouldn’t be surprised if a few other BIG names were added to this cast.


Your thoughts?

This is a photo from the set of Mission Impossible 4 where it looks like Tom Cruise (Ethan Hunt) will be an undercover brother as a Russian.

Plot guesses?

Enjoy!

Hi Bryan Here…

According to Deadline, Tom Hanks and Tim Allen will star in “Jungle Cruise” based on the Disney ride.  Watching the Toy Story films, you can’t help but notice the chemistry between Allen and Hanks.  Even though it is just their voice.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Disney is going all retro and dipping back into one of the original theme park attractions that opened when Disneyland did to find Jungle Cruise and make a movie based on the ride. In a little bit of an ironic twist, The Jungle Cruise was vaguely based on a film to begin with – ‘The African Queen‘ with simulating 1930’s adventures from a British explorer’s lodge aboard a tramp steamer. From there, the waterways were open leading you through various tropical locales simulating a riverboat cruise down several major rivers of Asia, Africa and South America.

Film Review: ‘Edge of Tomorrow’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 5th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

edgeoftomorrowposter

I’m very glad that the science-fiction genre is back and doing very well these days. The more sci-fi in theaters, the better. And we have what seems a pretty good lineup this summer of movies that involve everything you could want in a science-fiction film. Here to start off June 2014 is ‘Edge of Tomorrow‘, formally titled ‘All You Need Is Kill‘, which is based on the 2004 novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka of the same name. Director Doug Liman (‘Swingers‘, ‘Go‘, ‘The Bourne Identity‘) took a swing at this $178 million dollar budget film and hit a home-run.

Tom Waits Delivers New Music Video! No Tour Announcement!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 7th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

So, over the past several days, Tom Waits has been teasing his fans (which include me) about something he was announcing today.  He has posted a few images on his website hinting of what’s to come.  It all seemed to be pirate themed.  There was tons of speculation over the internet about what the musician had up his sleeve.  We were all hoping for a tour announcement.  Maybe a Tom Waits cruise?

Film Review: The Mummy (2017)!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 7th, 2017

Fernando M., here….

Mummy

The Mummy (1999) is by far one of the best movies I’ve ever seen.  Written and directed by Stephen Sommers, it works as an homage to classic monster movies, great adventures, and old school “hero of the day” golden age of cinema films.  Starring Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, and what can only be described as a truly breakout performance by Arnold Vosloo as The Mummy Himself, Imhotep!

Universal Pictures is rebooting their monster movie franchise and the first tent pole to be staked is ‘The Mummy‘ debuting on June 9, 2017. Director Alex Kurtzman (‘People Like Us‘) worked with a stellar cast to kick off this new universe where all the films will be entwined and venture into each other’s films  à la the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We see the first crossover as Rusell Crowe’s Dr. Henry Jekyll is very visible in this film, or at least in the trailer. The cast includes Sofia Boutella, Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Chasty Ballesteros, and Courtney B. Vance.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

interview-with-the-vampire-kirsten-dunst-96219_1500_1008

Someone alert Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise again. Anne Rice has the theatrical rights to her ‘Vampire Chronicles‘ once again and looks to make a TV Series and maybe even more movies. Anne Rice released here first book on the vampire lore back in 1976 with ‘Interview with The Vampire‘, which had a sequel book in 1985 titled ‘The Vampire Lestat‘. Warner Bros. got the rights shortly after and made the Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt film, which made over $220 million. Not exactly a light-weight.

Film Review: ‘Jack Reacher: Never Go Back’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 21st, 2016

Liz T., here…

jackreacher2

As I watched the latest installment in the film versions of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher novels, I couldn’t help but chuckle at the irony. Never Go Back took on a new meaning. Many fans of the novels were appalled and aghast when Tom Cruise, a visual polar opposite, was cast for the lead role. The initial film was not a box office hit and many were disappointed. Watching Director Edward Zwick’s attempt at the second movie, it is apparent that mistakes in the conversion from novel to film are so extreme that, sadly, there is no going back.
