'M:I Fallout' Out On Blu-ray, Making Top 2018 Lists, Awards


Mission: Impossible Fallout is out on Blu-ray today!

There is a lot to look forward to, including some awesome behind the scenes and cool details you might have missed in the film itself. Did you catch Walker's quick appearance in the video Ethan watched at the beginning of M:I Fallout? Now you can watch it over and over again.  


Bleeding Cool shared an exclusive BTS peek at some of the dangerous stunts in the film.

CHECK IT OUT.

 Paramount Pictures


Mission: Impossible Fallout has also landed on several top lists of 2018 (with more to come).

Variety:

"There are moments in Christopher McQuarrie’s cracklingly fun spectacular when series star Tom Cruise seems hell-bent on killing himself. He did, in fact, break an ankle while filming one of Fallout’s rollicking sequences, a testament to his go-for-broke commitment to this franchise. The Mission: Impossible movies have always been a good time, but Fallout is the first of them to fully utilize the potential of film physics. Whirling high above the mountains of Kashmir in a helicopter and zipping through Paris in one of the new century’s greatest chase scenes, Cruise’s Ethan Hunt is an agent of masterfully controlled chaos, the embodiment of action, finally loosed, regarded with both awe and fear. The best action movie since Mad Max: Fury Road, Fallout may be the sixth installment in the M:I series—but in all its grand escalation, it runs like brand new."

Indiewire (at about 9:30): This one is particularly fun because... Lady Gaga. Just watch.

EW:

"In a year when superheroes ruled the box office, the best of the bunch didn’t wear spandex. In his sixth outing as the ageless IMF ringleader Ethan Hunt, Tom Cruise gave a master class in the still-thrilling possibilities of the summer blockbuster. He’s become a skydiving, cliff-hanging, bathroom-brawling antidote to franchise fatigue. Thanks to Cruise and his insatiable, top-this daredevil ethos, Mission: Impossible has become the rare (the only?) series that somehow manages to get better, twistier, and more deliriously fun with each installment."

Finally, M:I Fallout is being recognized by The Los Angeles Online Film Critics. The movie is nominated for Best Blockbuster, Best Visual Effects, Best Stunt Work and Best Action Film. The awards ceremony is set for January 9th. UPDATE (12/7): The film won Best Action Film and Best Stunt Work.

This has been one heck of a year for Henry... and with Nomis and The Witcher on the way, 2019 is looking bright!

UPDATE: Read Henry's new interview with Collider.

The Witcher: Author Believes In Henry, Actors Share Set Details

Image: Netflix

As we wait for the first photos from the set of The Witcher, production news has been hard to come by. Luckily executive producer Lauren S. Hissrich has been giving us a bit of a play by play...





There have been a few updates from the cast and crew as well. Actor Eamon Farren talked to Express UK about how it's been working on the fantasy series for Netflix.



“We've started shooting and you walk onto these sets and they're just incredible, the scale of it is massive.

“What I love about The Witcher is the scale of it is massive -- but the stories and the characters are so intimate and familiar, and they exist in that epic world.

“I love that combination because I think it's so fun to play with the micro and macro smashing up against each other.”

“It feels like a dream to be able to walk on a set like that and and fight and ride horses and yell those words.”


At a Hungarian convention this month, actor and stuntman Vladimir Furdik also revealed that he's been training Henry:

 "I'm currently working on The Witcher series for Netflix in Hungary, and I can design combat choreographies. I also train actors, including Henry Cavill, who plays Geralt of Rivia, for scenes that require physical contact." 

After watching Henry go up against some of the best fighters in the business in Mission: Impossible Fallout -- we're excited to see what fight moves he brings to the role of Geralt.


As for the creator of the character, he has no doubt Henry is the right man for the job of professional monster killer. Andrzej Sapkowski recently told Spanish site Clarin that he approves of Henry, and believes in his acting talent.

We will all see him in action soon enough. The Witcher is set to premiere on Netflix next year.

Brilliant In Blue: New Photo In GQ Germany


Just days after GQ Germany honored Henry with the Movie International award at their Men of the Year ceremony in Berlin, we have a first look at his feature in the December issue of the magazine.

Nishat was kind enough to share a rough translation of the caption with us:

Whether the Briton will wear the Superman cape again is not certain yet. His name is always reflected in the ever-popular retro classic "Who will be the next James Bond?" -- In any case, the former "Man of Steel" fulfills two main criteria: Impeccable taste and 100% Britishness. Not least when it comes to fashion. With a typically British understatement, Henry Cavill says to GQ: "I cannot say that I have an unbelievable style of clothing." The fact that the actor with the maximum trained superhero figure does not fit well gives us a quantum of consolation: "My figure does not make it easy for me to shop. I rather stay away from the seasonal trends, I spend my money most on classic, timeless pieces - shirts, suits and jackets. "

As for the longer, curlier hairstyle... we expect to see it in more shoots to come, since Henry's character in The Witcher is just coming alive.
