Mission:Impossible is back, and the fourth installment sees Tom Cruise back as Ethan Hunt, finding himself having to face the seemingly impossible once again, rising up to the challenge this time, before he is framed for the bombing of the Kremlin, a huge world landmark. Co-starring in this sequel is Simon Pegg, so it seems there will at least be an enjoyable humourous aspect to the movie. However, those of you doubting the upcoming Impossible movie – give the trailer a watch first.
Directed by Brad Bird who, although is very much associated with Pixar movies, definitely shows that he can do more than write a children’s movie. And combined with the genius of J.J. Abrams (Super 8, Lost, Fringe) this movie is definitely set to be a good one. With all the amazing action-packed sequences you could expect from a Mission:Impossible movie, check the trailer out:
It seems that the Mission:Impossible franchise will be living on a lot longer than many of us expected. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, is set to hit cinema screens in the UK on 26th December.

Acting legend, Tom Hanks, has recently shared the news that Pixar are currently working on a fourth installment in the Toy Story franchise. Hanks, who did the voice of Sheriff Woody in the three Toy Story movies, shared this news with us when speaking to BBC Breakfast, stating, “I think there will be. Yeah I think they’re working on it now. There you go!“.
Now, I’m an absolutely huge fan of all three toy story movies, with them being up there with my favourite CGI movies, and favourite movies in general. I think the third movie, released in 2010, was a brilliant ending to what we all thought was meant to be the end of a great era. It seems weird that Pixar would decide to go and make another sequel to the already brilliant trilogy, with the possibility that it could damage the high amount of respect and appreciation associated with the current trilogy.
This being said however, I love Toy Story, as mentioned, and although they could put their effort into making a completely different movie, I welcome a Toy Story 4 with open arms. Pixar, have a knack for making awesome movies: Monsters Inc., Wall-E, Up, and so on. And although there really are no expectations or obligations for a fourth Toy Story, I think it would be great to have a fourth in the franchise – and I trust that Pixar would do a great job of it.
So, what do you think? Are you excited about the prospect of another Toy Story movie, or do you think it will be another movie sequel that will run its course?

Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford star in the upcoming sci-fi/western mash-up, Cowboys & Aliens; 1873, Arizona, and a spaceship arrives at Earth, planning to take over the world, happening to start in the Wild West. Standing in their way, a group of cowboys. Now, this may sound corny, but with the great cast, along with talented director, Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Iron Man 2) behind them, this movie has high hopes. It may sound corny, but the amount of effort put into it to make the movie a Western-style one really does appear impressive. Jake Lonergan (Craig) wakes up to find a mysterious shackle around his wrist, with no recollection of the events before, and sets off to try to stop the alien invaders, and find out what happened to him. Check out the latest trailer below:
With this shrouded and mysterious storyline around it, this movie looks set to be a promising one. Cowboys & Aliens hits cinema screens in the UK on 19th August, so keep an eye out, as I feel that this movie will be one to watch on the big screen.
