"Mission: Impossible 5 - Rogue Nation" is doing well so far in the box office – grossing more than $120 million in its opening alone. The U.S. opening accounted for almost half of that at $56 million, while the rest of the world brought in $65 million during the movie's opening, according to reports.
It is because of this box office performance that the movie's star Tom Cruise recently made an announcement that another sequel is in the works – a "Mission: Impossible 6," if you will. This announcement was accompanied by a surprising pronouncement from Paramount Pictures Vice Chairman Rob Moore that the studio is backing the star on this all the way.
"We're very happy to be developing this movie with Tom. There's no question that Ethan Hunt deserves another film." Moore said. "The international brand is as strong as ever." more >>

Calvary Chapel held a special screening last month for the film "Return to the Hiding Place" — a sequel of sorts to "The Hiding Place," released 40 years ago — which is the story of ten Boom's "army of untrained teenagers" who helped the Jews living in Holland escape the Holocaust.
Ten Boom considered Pastor Chuck her pastor the last eight to 10 years of her life, the producers of the film who attended the screening said to this reporter. Petra Pearce, who along with her father, director Peter Spencer, produced the film said that through the movie, shown on a big screen at the church, ten Boom has given "the Word once again behind the pulpit." more >>
