Mission: Impossible – Fallout
The sixth installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise, “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” continues to see Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt putting himself in harm’s way – if the trailer’s action sequences are anything to go by.

- Starring: Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Michelle Monaghan, Alec Baldwin, Sean Harris, Henry Cavill, Vanessa Kirby, Sian Brooke, Angela Bassett

Ready Player One
‘Ready Player One’ – based on Ernie Cline’s novel of the same name – appears to be packed with spectacular Virtual Reality adventure and quite a bit of retro pop-culture references – if the trailer is anything to go by.
In an over-populated, polluted, and corrupt existence, the virtual reality world of OASIS – the brainchild of the now dead James Halliday – provides the only escape from the all-pervading destitution and gloom for the film’s indigent teenage protagonist Wade Watts– by his own admission, a name picked by his dad “because it sounded like a superhero’s alter ego like a Peter Parker or a Bruce Banner.”
OASIS is a “whole new virtual universe” where people go for “all the things they can do, but they stay for all the things they can be.
It’s definitely much more than just a game AND it can be a dangerous place.
- Releasing: March 29 (United States)
