Trailer Thursday: 'Mission: Impossible,' 'Sharknado,' 'Macbeth' & More

The world's greatest art form occurred six wonderful times on this fine day—so come chill with sharks in a tornado, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's French accent, Ethan Hunt, etc.

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

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.

Jan 16: Action!

Comic book fans rejoice, we’re one step closer to watching ‘The Umbrella Academy.’ As we reported last year, the series, created by former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way and artist Gabriel Bá, was picked up by Netflix for 10 episodes. In a behind-the-scenes photo shared by Bá we see that they already started filming the much anticipated show. Ellen Page is the first actor confirmed for the cast.
