Top Gun: Maverick | Moustache Teaser Reaction

Wow! This is the gold standard in teaser trailers. Some incredible footage, with a hint or two at a potential story, and just a whisper of that classic soundtrack. If you haven't seen it, you can check out the trailer below. Jospeh Kosinski (Oblivion) looks to be bringing the classic 80's Cold War movie into the 21st Century, and he's taking advantage of all the advanced technology that comes with it. Seeing Tom Cruise in the cockpit of an F/A-18 as it's catapulted across the deck of an aircraft carrier - not to mention the cockpit view of Cruise and the other aircraft in formation with him - looks phenomenal, and it really adds to the excitement and authenticity of the movie. Something that will only serve to immerse the audience in what they're seeing. Top Gun is known for some fantastic aerial photography, and the sequel certainly honours that legacy, with shots of fighter aircraft skimming the desert floor, a river valley and an insane flip over a moun

Amazon is Developing a Jack Reacher Series

Amazon has won the rights to develop a show based on the novels by Lee Child for their streaming service. The show will be produced by Amazon, along with Skydance Television and Paramount Television, and will follow the ex-military drifter as he travels the US, single-handedly solving problems and fighting crime. Think of Reacher as a one man A-Team. The character was previously played by Tom Cruise in two movies (Jack Reacher and Jack Reacher: Never Go Back), based on the eleventh and eighteenth books in the series. Christopher McQuarrie, who acted as writer/director on the first movie and producer on the second, will serve as executive producer on the show. This is to be the third series of novels developed by Amazon Studios into a TV show. Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch novels are the source for one of the studios longest running shows; 'Bosch', starring Titus Welliver as the veteran LAPD Homicide Detective. Last year 'Jack Ryan' - based on the novel

Mission: Impossible - Fallout | Average Guy Movie Review

When a mission failure results in three plutonium cores ending up in the wrong hands, the IMF is put under CIA overwatch. Things get even more complicated when it's discovered that that the group looking to acquire the plutonium - known as the Apostles - are the last remaining members of Solomon Lane's (Sean Harris) Syndicate. Their goal, cause a global catastrophe that will bring about a new world order. And the only link to the Apostles and the plutonium that Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his team have to work with is a mysterious arms dealer known as the White Widow (Vanessa Kirby). In the 22 years it has been around, the Mission: Impossible franchise has gone through many guises. Each movie is as different from the last as the men who direct them. Fallout may have the same director as Rogue Nation - a first for the franchise - but Christopher McQuarrie still manages to make this a very different movie. This one's a lot darker than previous instalments, the mission

Moustache Trailer Reactions | Mile 22 | Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout It appears that Solomon Lane (Sean Harris) isn't done causing trouble for Ethan Hunt and the IMF. His escape re-ignites the rivalry between the Impossible Mission Force and their sister agency, the CIA. A matter only made worse by Hunt's determination to be the one to bring Lane in. Fallout is said to focus more on Hunt's personal life, which might explain said determination. Michelle Monaghan returns as Ethan's wife Julia. There's a shot in the trailer of the two of them taking part in some sort of wedding ceremony, only for what appears to be a nuclear explosion to be seen in the distance. Now, the Mission: Impossible movies aren't known for their dream sequences but there's a chance that's what this is. All of the team are back bar Jeremy Renner's William Brandt, Renner was busy working on the Avengers sequels. Alec Baldwin is back as the newly crowned Secretary of the IMF and we're introduced
