This is casting news we can get behind. Doug Liman is loading up his latest picture, 'All You Need is Kill' with actors, and he's already got Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt signed up. But now it looks like Bill Paxton could be joining the cast, and that's enough to warrant buying a ticket.

Although the following paragraphs will essentially be a report about some pretty standard movie industry going-ons, it's also a nice look at the interesting variety of projects that Universal has on its plate. Sure, the meat of the story here is that the studio has set release dates for 'Oblivion,' 'Rush' and 'Mama,' but can you think of three projects that sound more different and involve such talent?

This week it was announced that Katie Holmes is divorcing Tom Cruise. The usual tabloid suspects jumped on it so quickly you'd wonder if there's some sort of press room offering free brunch and mimosas aboard that train wreck. But there was something a little too opportunistic happening -- posts about Cruise's career and the possible effects of this divorce on box office sales of 'The Master,' and even a magazine spread re-worked to appear as though it foretold the divorce. To all of which we say, seriously?

'Jack Reacher' Trailer: Tom Cruise Kicks Some Ass

by Jacob Hall July 3, 2012 @ 11:33 AM
When Tom Cruise was cast as Jack Reacher in Christopher McQuarrie's adaptation of Lee Child's novel, 'One Shot' (which has since been retitled to 'Jack Reacher'), fans of the character were none too pleased. Written as a 6'5" man with a fifty inch chest and the ability to kill his foes with a single punch, Cruise seemed all kinds of wrong for Child's soldier-turned-drifter protagonist. With the arrival of a the first 'Jack Reacher' trailer, we can all see first hand how Cruise looks in the role.

The first official image of Tom Cruise in character as 'Jack Reacher' has debuted and while it doesn’t address the burning concerns of rabid Reacher fans who claim Cruise is too short to play their beloved anti-hero, it does give us plenty of ammunition for further arguments while we wait for the film to reach us in December.

'Rock of Ages' Review

Warner Bros.
The phrase "80's rock" calls certain things to mind: big voices playing big arenas singing big power ballads to big crowds with big hair. Bigness in all its forms, in other words, was the key to the era. And it's this part of the 80s rock scene that the new musical 'Rock of Ages' gets right -- maybe a little too right.
This film is one towering tribute to excess. Clocking in at over two hours and featuring 900 songs (approximate), it feels like an entire decade of music crammed into one supremely excessive movie. They didn't pour some sugar on this thing; they poured the whole friggin' box. And then they lit the box on fire and threw up some mock-sinister devil horns.
