It's been nearly 30 years since the first Mission: Impossible film dropped, but Tom Cruise somehow hasn't aged a day. The actor returns to the franchise as Ethan Hawk for the seventh time and is still risking his life for the sake of entertainment. Ving Rhames, Henry Czerny, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, and Frederick Schmidt also return to their roles, while Cary Elwes, Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, and Rob Delaney join the cast. Mission: Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One is slated for release on June 28, 2023.
George Miller's eclectic style is on full display in his first film since 2015's Mad Max: Fury Road. Based on the short story "The Djinn in the Nightingale's Eye" by A.S. Byatt, Three Thousand Years of Longing finds Alithea on her way to Istanbul for a conference, where a side trip to a bazaar leads to her purchasing a strange bottle. Back home, Alithea opens it to find it holds a djinn, trapped for thousands of years, and eager to grant three wishes — which Alithea is loath to do. Starring Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton, Three Thousand Years of Longing comes only to theaters August 31, 2022.
