[video] More sick footage of Tom Cruise on top of World’s Tallest Building in Dubai for Mission Impossible 4
This guy is absolutely nuts, once again can’t wait to see this movie, Mission Impossible 4 : Ghost Protocol.
He was up there for about an hour. Chopper circled several times very close.
This dude has absolutely no fears whatsoever. When the movie drops we will know if this is really him but knowing Tom Cruise don’t bet against him.
The latest Mission: Impossible movie looks like a real high-wire act for Tom Cruise.
The actor, 48, was photographed filming a terrifying stunt for the film on Saturday in Dubai, dangling from the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, as filmmakers shot an action sequence – and fans watched, hearts in mouths, some 2,700 feet below.
Yeah it was kinda cool to see Tom Cruise get busy with the rejuvenated Jennifer Lopez in the number taken from the hit movie Tropic Thunder. Really was not feeling the opening part so if you are smart like me you will skip to the 1:17 mark and enjoy the rest.
Check out four minutes of the new action/adventure movie Knight and Day starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz( watching this clip this movie is like a 2010 Mr. and Mrs. Smith).
There are probably millions of Scientology haters that would love to do this to Tom Cruise repeatedly.

J.J. Abrams wrote and directed Mission Impossible III, which was supposed to be a big deal at the time, but it only grossed a disappointing $134 mil domestically on a $150 mil budget (though it eventually made almost $400 mil worldwide). I always assumed that was because by the third film (after a second one directed by John Woo featuring a motorcycle joust fight – God that movie sucked), no one cared about the Mission Impossible franchise anymore. Nonetheless, word on the street is that Abrams is back as producer for a fourth movie. From TV Guide (via SpoilerTV):
“I am incredibly honored that Tom (Cruise) has invited me back as a producer on Mission Impossible 4. says Abrams. “Tom and I have come up with a really cool idea we are pursuing.”
That idea? Tom Cruise must travel back in time to find the source of all the lens flares.
Is anyone surprised?

Will Smith gives generously to many causes, and one of them is the Church of Scientology. A report on his charitable foundation’s tax return shows that $122,500 was donationed to the Scientology causes, out of $1.3 million given overall.
He also gave a combined $122,500 to the Church of Scientology, broken into these donations: $67,500 to the New York Rescue Workers Detoxication Fund, $50,000 to the group’s Celebrity Center in Hollywood and $5,000 to ABLE, another Scientology offshoot. Smith and his wife have also supported a private school called New Village Academy they opened this fall in suburban Los Angeles that uses Scientology learning concepts.
After a long takeoff, “Valkyrie” finally takes flight as a thriller in its second half but never soars very high. Bryan Singer’s long-awaited account of the near-miss assassination of Adolf Hitler by a ring of rebel German army officers on July 20, 1944, has visual splendor galore, but is a cold work lacking in the requisite tension and suspense. This second production from Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner at United Artists will do better than the first, “Lions for Lambs,” but is a decidedly odd choice for Christmas Day release, and looks destined for just so-so commercial returns.
Cruise himself is a bit stiff but still adequate as Col. Claus von Stauffenberg, the handsome, aristocratic officer whose disenchantment with Nazism, the Fuehrer and the war finds sympathetic ears among a sizable number of military bigwigs at a time when the tide has turned against Germany in the East and an Allied invasion is expected imminently in the West.
Well-carpentered script by Christopher McQuarrie, reuniting with Singer for the first time since their joint career breakthrough on “The Usual Suspects,” and Nathan Alexander must inevitably wrestle with the “Day of the Jackal” issue of the known failure of the central plot. Allowing for the need to compress and streamline events, the scribes have hewed pretty closely to the facts but haven’t injected sufficient sizzle into the dialogue or individuality into the characters.
As if the filmmakers felt the need to placate modern viewers who might wonder why they should emotionally indulge Nazi authority figures, the opening is swathed in Stauffenberg’s feelings about how Hitler and the SS are a “stain” on the German army and his coincidentally contemporary desire for a “change” in the country’s leadership. Shortly after entering these sentiments into his diary while serving in Tunisia in 1943, Stauffenberg is badly injured and loses his right arm, the last two fingers of his left hand and his left eye; with a black eyepatch, he still looks quite dashing, even if executing a Nazi salute with a prosthetic arm might appear rather irreverent.

Cruise finally got this flick greenlit in time to coincide with the departure of G Dub, the Hitler reincarnate. Expect Valkyrie in theaters sometime late December.

WASHINGTON – Hackers broke into the Yahoo! e-mail account that John McCain selected her as his .used for official business as Alaska’s governor, revealing as evidence a few inconsequential personal messages she has received since
This is a shocking invasion of the governor’s privacy and a violation of law. The matter has been turned over to the appropriate authorities and we hope that anyone in possession of these e-mails will destroy them,” the McCain campaign said in a statement.
The Secret Service contacted The Associated Press on Wednesday and asked for copies of the leaked e-mails, which circulated widely on the Internet. The AP did not comply.
The disclosure Wednesday raises new questions about the propriety of the Palin administration’s use of nongovernment e-mail accounts to conduct state business. The practice was revealed months ago — prior to Palin’s selection as a political critics obtained internal e-mails documenting the practice by some aides.— after
Honestly I don’t think I even have seen a full episode of Star Trek, but with JJ. Abrams behind the lens I will definitely be checking it out. The dudes over at Latino Review got some ill hi-res pics that I snatched below and any of you trekkies please holler at us:
Tom Cruise is going back to the scene of the crime, the set of the Oprah Winfrey show. We all have seen that Youtube moment when Tom jumped on O’s couch declaring his love for new wife Katie Holmes. This smells of a pr blitz that Tom must do to rebuild his image with has taken a beating in the press with various negatives stories about Scientology.
CHICAGO (AP) – entertainmentminute Oprah might want to nail down her furniture. Tom Cruise is scheduled to return to “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” nearly three years after a couch-jumping appearance that spawned countless YouTube parodies and late-night jokes.
The two-part show will coincide with the 25th anniversary of Cruise’s booty-shaking turn in the film “Risky Business.” Friends and colleagues will surprise Cruise with taped messages honoring his work in movies, according to a statement Thursday from Harpo Productions.
Tom Cruise’s African American adopted son Connor will debut as an actor in an upcoming Will Smith film called “Seven Pounds” according to Reuters.
This news is somewhat ironic because I thought I saw somewhere that Cruise’s former wife Nicole Kidman(expecting her third child) wanted her adopted kids out of Scientology.
Well in any case it seems that the acting bug has bitten Connor and what a better opportunity to be in a film with Will Smith. More below:
Despite his pedigree, he had to audition for the Columbia Pictures project, People said.
“Tom is so proud of Connor,” the magazine quoted a source as saying. “He’s proud of him for really doing this on his own.”
Cruise and Kidman adopted two children during their marriage — Connor and 15-year-old daughter Isabella.
Cruise now has another daughter, two-year-old Suri, with his third wife, Katie Holmes. Kidman is expecting a baby with her country-star husband Keith Urban in July.
One of Hollywood’s more popular franchises maybe getting ready to reload with a fourth movie with Gisele Bundchen supposedly given the script to possibly star. Austin Powers which has had cameos ranging from Tom Cruise to Beyonce(she actually starred)is boxoffice gold and it would seem crazy for them not to put something together for its global audience appeal.
Aint it Cool:
At one point we’d heard an AUSTIN POWERS 4 might be a prequel of sorts. Other indications suggested the movie would center heavily on Dr. Evil & his gang of wannabe super-villains, with the Austin Powers character dodging is as their foil rather than being the focus of the film.
Don’t know what direction the project ultimately headed, but here’s a report saying that a script is done…and that Mike Meyers and director Jay Roach are already looking for their Powers Babe. One contender is Gisele Bundchen. More here
