There’s a reason that Jack Reacher’s Tom Cruise is one of the biggest names in film. Over the years he’s dipped into comedy, horror and award-winning drama. Of course, everyone knows he’s most comfortable running away, from or towards danger:
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back
The ex-military cop is back, once again drawing a straight line from problem to solution while punching anyone who gets in his way. This time around, Reacher has to prove the innocence of fellow soldier Cobie Smulders, who’s been accused of espionage. If you loved the first film then you’re in for an even bigger thrill ride with this one.
Out now. Get times and tickets here.
The MummyA rare step into the supernatural for Cruise. This rebooted action-fest follows the Hollywood trend of expanded movie universes, but instead of superheroes, The Mummy will bring back classic Universal Horror monsters like Frankenstein’s creation, the Wolf Man and even a new Creature from the Black Lagoon.
American MadeCruise stars as Barry Seal, a real-life pilot/drug smuggler who was recruited by the CIA to run one of the biggest covert operations in US history. Tom was once considered for the lead in Goodfellas, so next year’s crime thriller gives the actor a chance to finally step into a similar role.
Out 29 September 2017.
Luna ParkTom leads a crazy heist as a group of disgruntled employees decide to steal a priceless energy source that’s located…on the moon! We’re pretty excited about Cruise taking another stab at Sci-Fi. Here’s hoping that it’s something along the lines of Edge of Tomorrow meets Oceans 11.
Top Gun 2Maverick is back! Well not quite yet, and while this isn’t 100% confirmed, it does seem that everyone involved wants to make it happen – and no one wants it more than the fans. With no Goose this time out, will it fall to Val Kilmer’s Iceman to play wingman to one of Cruise’s most popular heroes? We can’t wait to get back on the Highway to the Danger Zone.
Mission: Impossible 6Cruise has once again agreed to accept a globe-trotting, everything-exploding mission. The stakes were raised ridiculously high in the last film, which saw Tom clinging to the exterior of a plane during take off, so it’s going to be a tall order to top that. Light the fuse; cue the theme tune!
