Can Tom Cruise Climb Again to CinemaCon Glory? Plus 5 More Burning Questions
“Can Tom Cruise Climb Again to CinemaCon Glory? Plus 5 More Burning Questions” : The 55-year-old will have to show the annual convention of movie owners in Las Vegas (April 23 to 26) that he’s ready to push the box office for “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” in theaters on July 27.
“Can Tom Cruise Climb” : Cruise has been an excellent performer at CinemaCon, where major film studios launch their mega-stars in Sin City to advertise the exhibitors while they showcase their upcoming filming.
In 2015, Cruise told tales and filming of his spectacular mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, which involved tying up next to an airplane. But the apparently deadly star broke his ankle last August during a bow thrust at Fallout, forcing production to be temporarily halted.
“Can Tom Cruise Climb Again to CinemaCon Glory?” : Cruise will try to impress as he takes to the stage on Wednesday for Paramount to show scenes of Fallout with co-stars including Henry Cavill. He will also be honored as Pioneer of the Year, the first actor to receive the award.
Director Christopher McQuarrie posted photos of a certain topic of discussion, the 25,000-foot HALO jump from Cruise (high altitude, low aperture).
Five other burning issues ahead of CinemaCon:
How do movie owners deal with MoviePass?
The subscription-based ticket service is attracting viewers, although exhibitors have expressed mistrust and utter hostility about the viability of the industry disruptor’s business model.
The app will be part of the discussion and outburst at Cinema Com, even though Movie Pass executives do not have an official event or presence.
The dialogue appears to be similar to the 2016 convention, where Sean Parker’s Screening Room and controversial plans (now marginalized) to offer newly released home movies have heightened the ire of theater owners.
Will Solo achieve ‘Incredibles’ status?
After losing opportunities at previous public exhibitions, such as the Disney D23 Expo fan event last July, it’s time to draw and shoot Solo: A Star Wars Story (May 25).
Director Ron Howard, who finished Solo after Christopher Miller and Phil Lord were fired, must be part of the fireworks of a Star Wars movie that is in the rare position of being the third most anticipated blockbuster of the season, according to a survey from Fandango.com to USA TODAY.
The Tuesday presentation of Disney will also feature Pixar’s Incredibles 2 (June 15), a sequel already registering heroically with fans.
Which superhero will dominate?
With the convention tumbling just before the Avengers: Infinity War screen, the lineup of hopeful super-contenders seeking to dominate the theater is long, including Deadpool 2 (May 18) and Marvel’s Ant-Man and Wasp (July 6 ).
Sony is expected to provide an expanded view of its animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (December 14) and bring Tom Hardy to Venom (October 5). Aquaman (December 21) star Jason Momoa will try to impress Warner Bros.
Will Bumblebee fly?
Michael Bay’s Transformers films have always stood out with great mass appeal at CinemaCon. This year will feature the first look at the Bumblebee spinoff (December 21), with stars John Cena and Hailee Steinfeld coming on stage to launch it.
They will be heavily outnumbered by the cast of Ocean’s 8 (June 8), which stars Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling and Anne Hathaway.
Which movie will have the last laugh for the summer?
“Can Tom Cruise Climb Again to CinemaCon Glory? Plus 5 More Burning Questions” : CinemaCon will boost a number of summer comedies including the growing strength of Crazy Rich Asians (Aug. 17) with stars Constance Wu and Henry Golding. Jon Hamm, Ed Helms and Jeremy Renner will join Tag (June 15), and Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon will chuckle up for the Spy Who Dumped Me (August 3).
