Movie News and Rumors for 8-13-15
The new trailer for the Bradley Cooper-led Burnt was released today by 3 Arts Entertainment.

The film also stars Sienna Miller, Uma Thurman, Emma Thompson, Daniel Brühl, Matthew Rhys, and Omar Sy. It’s scheduled for release on October 23rd.
Bryan Cranston returns to the big screen, leading the way as Dalton Trumbo, a writer who was blacklisted by Hollywood in the 1940s. Branded a Communist, Trumbo’s once successful career comes to a sudden halt, and he and other blacklisted writers band together to try and overcome Hollywood’s oppression. Based on a true story, the film also stars Louis C.K., Diane Lane, Elle Fanning, John Goodman, and Helen Mirren. Trumbo will be in theaters on November 6th.
A new international trailer for Anton Corbijn’s LIFE has been released. The story is told through the eyes of photojournalist Dennis Stock who befriends a young actor named James Dean. The two form an incredible bond as photographer and subject as Stock helps Dean begin a meteoric rise to stardom. The film stars Robert Pattinson, Dean DeHaan, Joel Edgerton, Alessandra Mastronardi, and Ben Kinglsey, and is slated for release in the U.S. sometime this fall.
Mission Impossible 6 / Jack Reacher 2
Tom Cruise is having himself a resurgence. The newest installment, MI: Rogue Nation, has been a hit at the box office, and there’s already plans of fast-tracking MI:6 to be released in 2017. That’s Cruise’s hope, anyway. The previous span between MI films have either been four or five years apart, so this would be a much quicker turnaround. Along with the MI news comes confirmation that production for Jack Reacher 2 will begin this November, and bring back Cruise as the titular character. While Jack Reacher didn’t blow away the box office like MI releases, Paramount Studios is hoping the Cruise revival can make it a hit. Via THR
