Tom Cruise and Vanessa Kirby “ignored” wedding rumours while filming Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Vanessa Kirby hadn’t even met Hollywood actor Tom Cruise when reports about their alleged relationship started emerging. The actress says they chose to ignore the rumours when they started shooting for “Mission: Impossible Fallout”.

“We didn’t talk about it. Stuff is written about everybody all the time but it isn’t true. It just went away because it was so ridiculous,” Kirby told IANS here.

“We didn’t talk about it because we just need to ignore that stuff. And I am sure Tom does too,” she added.

Kirby’s tryst with showbiz started with theatre. She then made her TV debut in 2011 with BBC’s “The Hour”, following up her act with the role of Estrella in the BBC adaptation of “Great Expectations”.

She also got popular for her portrayal of Princess Margaret in “The Crown”. She is seen as White Widow, daughter of an arms dealer in the sixth part of the “Mission: Impossible” franchise. The Paramount Pictures movie is distributed in India by Viacom18 Motion Pictures.

Has she learnt to deal with all that comes with fame?

“I think we just have to. It is just the part of the industry and is always growing and it isn’t pleasant. You just have to concentrate on the work and don’t let it affect your life on a daily basis.”

#BLPredicts: This is how much Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, Mission Possible: Fallout and Nawabzaade will earn on the first day

The coming Friday is expected to be quite an entertaining one as three films – Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, Mission Possible: Fallout and Nawabzaade will be releasing. But looking at the current buzz around the films, we think Hollywood will dominate Bollywood at the box office.

Mission Impossible: Fallout – Rs 8 to Rs 10 crore

Let’s talk about Tom Cruise starrer Mission Possible: Fallout first. The sixth installment of the spy-action franchise has received rave reviews across the globe and is expected to open between Rs 8 and Rs 10 crore, making it Tom’s biggest opener in India. The action sequences and high-octane stunts have impressed us and will definitely be the first choice for the movie buffs especially among the youth in the metro cities. Directed by Christopher McQuarrie, the film features Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris, Michelle Monaghan and Alec Baldwin in pivotal roles.

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 – Rs 3 to Rs 4 crore

Coming to Sanjay Dutt‘s Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3, the Tigmanshu Dhulia directorial film is quite low on hype. Despite an intriguing trailer, the third installment of the franchise will open around Rs 3 to Rs 4 crore on its opening day. The film will be heavily dependent on word of mouth and will show growth at the ticket windows only if it manages to strike the right chord with the audience. Apart from Sanjay Dutt, the film also stars Chitrangada Singh, Jimmy Sheirgill and Mahie Gill in pivotal roles.

Nawabzaade – Rs 75 lakh to Rs 90 lakh

The last release of the week, Nawabzaade starring DID performers Punit Pathak, Dharmesh Yelande and Raghav Juyal in lead roles has generated no buzz during the promotions. Though the dance number of Varuna and Athiya has grabbed our attention, we don’t think it will help the film at the box office. It is expected to open below Rs 1 crore and has to show remarkable growth if it wants to mark its presence in the clutter of releases. Anyway, what’s your pick in the coming weekend? Share your thoughts with us…

 

Mission: Impossible – Fallout movie review: Tom Cruise returns with a film that reclaims his top position as an action star

I have grown up watching Mission: Impossible series. There was a time when the local cable TV would only air Mission: Impossible on loop. MI films are literally my introduction to the action genre. And for an Indian fan of action films, these well thought out movies are a relief from all the humdrum of Bollywood’s masala action entertainers. So, Mission: Impossible – Fallout was certainly a movie I was excited for. I am not kidding, I have watched the trailer at least 50 times. I finally got to watch the movie, and, as a happy man, here is my review.

What’s it about

Our beloved MIF agent Ethan Hunt, played by Tom Cruise, does something morally righteous, but stupid, and loses three plutonium cores, that can be used for a nuclear attack on the world by bad people. He needs to track down the three cores. Simple. Also, he needs to break out Solomon Lane from jail to get to plutonium. Yes, the same criminal he spent Rogue Nation putting away. Irony.

What’s hot

Chase sequences have always been a plus for this franchise. Fallout does try to one up the epic Sandstorm chase sequence from Ghost Protocol and succeeds. I thought I will never get over the awesomeness of the former, but in the new movie, there is a legit chase sequence on a helicopter. It doesn’t get better than that! Or maybe it does in the 7th part?

Who would believe Tom Cruise is 56? Just the fact that I know his age topped with the knowledge that he performs his own stunts makes watching every second of the actor on screen a delight. I am totally aspiring to be that fit in my 50s. Actually, I am not that fit even in my 20s. So, that’s a long shot. But, God, Tom is so awe-inspiring.

The action, the stunts, the music are so on point in Mission: Impossible – Fallout. Then there is Tom Cruise running with his iconic hand chops. It’s incredible.

I also like the fact that this became the second MI film, to have its climax based in India. Sorry for the mild spoiler, but you can live with this one.

Women continue to save men from impossible situations in Fallout too. So a huge shout-out to Rebecca Ferguson.

What’s not

The biggest flaw in Fallout is how utterly predictable it is at points. Point to be noted, it still manages to entertain with its predictability. But I have got to deduct marks for that. Right? You can see the twist coming from miles off. Also, the first two scenes – how Ethan loses Plutonium and how he gets intel on Lark – were also foreseen. That’s a disaster, given the fact how awesome the movie is otherwise. Also, don’t go around spending too much time re-assessing and thinking about the motives of characters played by Rebecca, Henry Cavill and new entrant, Vanessa Kirby. Because that is a huge mess. I am still trying to fix a few pieces in the puzzle. And I am pretty good at understanding plot of movies. We also never really learn how the plutonium bombs reach the place where they are exactly.

One of my most favourite moments in all movies is when in MI3, Julia saves her husband Ethan. I will always complain that the series is not investing in Julia enough. In Fallout, too, she just makes a token appearance near the end. She was his wife, for God’s sake! Please give her more screentime.

If you are watching the movie in Indian screens, get ready to see some abrupt edits. Few words have been edited out, which disrupted the flow of the scenes. But this flaw is more on the CBFC, I guess.

What to do

What movie doesn’t have flaws? Name one? Despite everything I said that wrong with Mission: Impossible – Fallout, it is a highly enjoyable film. Time flew when I was watching Tom do all sorts of unimaginable stunts in different parts of the world. After The Mummy, we needed this. Action lovers, check it out at all costs. Also, take your action-hater friends along, they might just start enjoying the genre.
