If there’s any question, last year’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol cemented that Tom Cruise is back in the Hollywood’s action spotlight and his upcoming career choices only further prove the theory. In just a few weeks, he’ll debut his next role as the title character Jack Reacher and we’ve got a new clip that serves as an ideal introduction. Led by a conversation with Richard Jenkins and David Oyelowo, the brisk tone quickly turns comedic — a welcome trait in the genre nowadays.
For those awaiting more Cruise, his next film will soon follow as Oblivion hits theaters in the spring. While a first trailer for Joseph Kosinski‘s Tron: Legacy follow-up is expected this month, a batch of concept art has been unearthed ahead of time, detailing an expansive sci-fi world.

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
