They’ve been tight-lipped on film number five. All we know is that Tom Cruise is back as Impossible Mission Force agent Ethan Hunt, with 'Reacher' director (and 'The Usual Suspects' writer) Christopher McQuarrie in charge behind the camera. But we all know what to expect, right? Another enjoyable, unambitious action movie, with Tom Cruise looking freakishly whippersnapper-ish for a veteran action man of 52. This likely to satisfy fans of the first four films, but unlikely to convert new followers.

Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons

Casting wise we’re thrilled with the line-up for the new Terminator, which is being described as a ‘blockbuster reset’ after 2009’s humourless ‘Terminator Salvation’. Emilia Clarke – yes, mother of dragons, Daenerys Targaryen from ‘Game of Thrones’ – is the young Sarah Connor. The Austrian Oak himself, Arnie returns as an aged T-800 with Jason Clarke as the older John Connor. ‘Thor: The Dark World’ director Alan Taylor is behind the camera, taking the action back to the early '80s start of the franchise.
