SYNOPSIS: A soldier fighting in a war with aliens finds himself caught in a time loop of his last day in the battle, though he becomes better skilled along the way.
Why You Should Give A Damn: Shooting right now-in and around London, England-this new film starring Tom Cruise is based on an Asian graphic novel of the same name. Let’s face it, when was the last time you saw a Tom Cruise film and was bored out of your mind? Like, never? Scientology or not, the man knows how to pick his scripts.
The Mission Impossible series gets better with each film, which says a lot (he also produces those films), because sequels don’t have such a great track record for being better than their predecessors. That said, the concept plus Cruise, plus stars like Bill Paxton and Emily Blunt being attached, and this is shaping up to be a big tent-pole sci-fi actioner of epic proportions.
Add the impressive, recent pics and vids of the film’s shooting (see below and above), in progress now, and you have my pants tightening with each frame snapped.
When Can You See It: IMDB has it coming out March of 2014, but my guess is we’ll see it by the end of 2013.
