Tom Cruise is on the run, and we've got a brand new look courtesy of two just released clips from the upcoming fourth movie in the "Mission: Impossible" series, "Ghost Protocol."
This time around Jeremy Renner plays Brandt, a team member who may be more than he lets on. In the two clips here, Brandt goes over mission logistics with Benji Dunn, as played by Simon Pegg. It is Brandt's job to infiltrate a computer, but the problem is there is some heat and a bit of a drop, 25 feet, and Brandt's not happy to hear about it.
It will be interesting to see how Disney proceeds with marketing "John Carter," formerly "of Mars," Andrew Stanton's big-budget adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs fantasy novels. With an untested star, Taylor Kitsch, and a first trailer that left most people lukewarm about the film's prospects, a boost in profile is certainly called for.
Something along those lines began last week when Entertainment Weekly published photos of the six-armed White Ape, a staple in the novels that's getting a more threatening treatment for the film version. Check it out after the break.
Last week, reports surfaced that Woody Harrelson did not like the film that's earning him Best Actor buzz, "Rampart." The film, a re-teaming for him and his "Messenger" director Oren Moverman, follows one of the dirtiest cops the LAPD has ever seen and was one that Harrelson felt incredibly passionate about while working on it.
"I had such high hopes for this movie. I really felt it was going to be great. Didn't like it," Harrelson said. "It veered substantially away from what we shot, and it was substantially different from the script, the ending, several characters dropped out. Lots of things changed."
If you head out to theaters this weekend to see "The Muppets" (and believe me, you should), you'll be treated to a rare opportunity when Jason Segal and his writing partner and director of "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," Nicholas Stoller, deliver a big screen "welcome back" for the famous troupe of puppets.
It's no spoiler to say that the Muppets have to throw an old-fashioned, but big screen, edition of "The Muppet Show," something older fans of the franchise are sure to love. But when it came time to write the sketches for the show, the team unfortunately couldn't fit all the ideas they had originally thought up.
Some of last week's biggest news came on Friday (Nov 18), when Deadline reported that "Hugo" star Asa Butterfield was offered the lead role in Gavin Hood's "Ender's Game" adaptation.
When MTV News sat down with Butterfield while he was promoting "Hugo," the young actor was tight-lipped on where his status with the project stood, simply stating that he could "possibly" star in the long-anticipated sci-fi film.
Butterfield would admit to reading both the book and the script by Hood and "Star Trek" collaborators Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. "I have read the book. I love the book. It's just a great book. I've read the script as well," Butterfield said.
It's been a breakout year in the U.S. for Benedict Cumberbatch. Having made a name for himself in the UK with "Sherlock," a modern retelling of Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective, Cumberbatch appears in two of this year's biggest holiday releases, "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and "War Horse." While both films have garnered Oscar talk, the project he will begin working on in January may be his biggest yet.
That's when Cumberbatch will head to New Zealand to work on Peter Jackson's two-part "Lord of the Rings" prequel, "The Hobbit." Facing him is a challenge that could intimidate any actor, portraying, both in voice and motion capture, the legendary dragon under the mountain, Smaug.
"I can't wait. I hope it does fans justice," said Cumberbatch, who is currently wrapping on another project before heading to Middle Earth.
It began last night at midnight and will continue this weekend across the country. Millions of Twilight fans will travel in droves to see "Breaking Dawn - Part 1," and, inevitably, among those moviegoers will be thousands of reluctant boyfriends and husbands, dragged along to appease their eager significant vampire-obsessed other.
Our friends over at NextMovie put together a helpful "Twilight" guide for dudes that will help you prep for the movie, but once you're in the theater, it's a whole other monster. Here are some survival tips for making it through "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" alive.
For the two movies Michael Fassbender has coming out this fall, you'd think he'd have a lot of sex on his mind. After diagnosing sexual issues in "A Dangerous Method," he takes on the role of an addict in "Shame."
"I guess I've sort of been delving into it a little bit with a little bit of metal manipulation in between," Fassbender told MTV News during the "Dangerous Method" press junket, referencing "X-Men: First Class."
But Fassbender said that he didn't give the similarities much thought when he was choosing his roles. "It's weird because I didn't even think of the two together. Once I do something, I tend to leave it behind pretty quickly, but it's a very intense process for that time, filming and prep and then it's on to the next thing," he said. "I kind of wash it away pretty fast and move on to the next thing, so I didn't even see the correspondence between 'A Dangerous Method' and 'Shame.'"
For the past two weeks, it seemed like every day brought a new, hugely discussed trailer. With first looks at "Snow White and the Huntsman," "Mirror, Mirror," "Brave" and "The Hunger Games" all debuting recently, next year's biggest blockbusters were all vying for your attention.

The first poster for "The Expendables 2" looks like the result of a Photoshop contest called, "Make a one-sheet for the most ridiculous action movie of all time."
Posed with the challenge of fitting all of Hollywood's past and future action movie kings into a single image, the "Expendables 2" poster, which debuted over at JoBlo, opts for the efficient "just stack 'em all on top of each other" method, with Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Willis, Statham, Norris, Van Damme, Lundgren, and Crews all making the cut.
And that's not even the entire cast.
