After the success of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, in which several scenes were filmed in IMAX, the Christopher McQuarrie -directed fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise will also be digitally remastered for IMAX.
Mission: Impossible 5 reunites stars Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames. New to the series are Alec Baldwin, Rebecca Ferguson and Sean Harris.
Fringe [Fox, Fridays, 10/9C] has taken us through some wild and compelling tales of multiple universes and timeframes over its four season run, to date. Now, following the precedent set by Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse, Fox has renewed the best science fiction series on television for a fifth and final season – giving its creators the chance to complete the story they’ve been developing since its debut in the fall of 2008.
For more details – including a tease for this week’s episode – check out the official press release following the jump.
‘On March 21st, 1963, Alcatraz officially closed. All the prisoners were off the island. Only that’s not what happened. Not at all,’ is Sam Neill’s opening narration for Alcatraz [two-hour premiere, FOX, Monday, Jan. 16th, 8/7C] as FBI Agent Emerson Hauser.
Person of Interest [Thursdays, 10/9C] is produced by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot [Alias, Lost, Fringe] and created by Jonathan Nolan [Memento, The Dark Knight]. What could possibly go wrong? As it turns out, very little.
I’m playing catch-up in DVD reviews, this week, thanks to circumstances beyond my control. We’ll start with three entertaining titles from Paramount Home Entertainment: the slight, but entertaining Morning Glory; Cecil B. DeMille’s 1956 religious epic, The Ten Commandments, and the innovative documentary series that raised the bar for all documentarians since its release, Ken Burns’ The Civil War.
