1 / 6

Made by: Writer/director Christopher McQuarrie (wrote The Usual Suspects and Edge of Tomorrow, directed Jack Reacher)

Release date: July 31, 2015

Gist: The fifth entry in the Mission: Impossible franchise, which kicked off in 1996 and is mainly about #stunts and hyperrealistic masks of other people's faces.

OMG: Tom Cruise will never stop jumping off/into/onto shit. Also: Zeppelin-fueled trailer.

2 / 6


Starring: Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, William Shakespeare's ghost

Made by: Director Justin Kurzel (The Snowtown Murders, the upcoming Assassin's Creed), screenwriters Michael Lesslie, Todd Louiso and Jacob Koskoff, ancient playwright Bill Shakespeare.

Release date: October 2, 2015

Gist: Shakespeare, bro.

OMG: We're still doing Braveheart-y scenes in 2015, and they're still looking sharper and sharper. Just all around, visually, Macbeth looks like a showstopper.

3 / 6

'Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!'

Starring: Tara Reid, Frankie Muniz, Ryan Newman, Bo Derek, David Hasselhoff, Ian Ziering

Made by: Director Anthony C. Ferrante (director of the first two) and screenwriter Thunder Levin (THUNDER IS THE MAN'S NAME), writer of the first two

Release date: October 2, 2015

Gist: French madman Philippe Petit tightrope walks, unauthorized, between the Twin Towers one August morning in 1974. Was already a perfect, dramatically successful documentary titled Man on Wire. But hey, why not take a Hollywood bite? Zemeckis came back hard with the Denzel Washington-starring Flight. So good. That scene with the hotel minibar. Shit.

OMG: JGL's French accent for two hours!
