What do you do when Matt Damon’s Jason Bourne throws you a stern, smoldering look? What if that same look comes with the dangerous raised eye-brow of a stealthy assassin? You turn around and quickly, but calmly run the other way.

Here’s what we know: Bourne 5 is happening with director Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon returning — both having previously sworn off the series unless they could find another good story to tell about Jason Bourne. Apparently they found one, along with a few good co-stars and…that’s all we know. Damon himself has a few updates about the upcoming sequel, including where the Bourne 5 picks up and what we can expect from some of the big action scenes.
Don’t play with our hearts like this, Clooney. Academy Award-winning actor and director George Clooney has begun making moves to get a production by the name of Suburbicon up and running, an exciting prospect for movie-industry observers. With a...
It’s been a great year for Riz Ahmed, who broke out with his part in last year’s Jake Gyllenhaal thriller Nightcrawler and landed a role in Star Wars: Rogue One opposite Felicity Jones. And while the Bourne series is no Star Wars, it’s still a major, beloved franchise, and one that Ahmed has now officially joined.
Jessica Chastain is the latest entertainer to stand up and note the ugly implication of unfair pay, that it clearly communicates a lessened value of a woman’s work relative to that of a man.
Ridley Scott is quite fond of releasing director’s cuts of his films, and while there will be an eventual extended cut of The Martian on DVD and Blu-ray, you can watch one of the scenes that didn’t make it into the theatrical version right now. Released from the “Ares Archives,” the scene above features Matt Damon’s astronaut Mark Watney doing what he does best: science. And jokes. Lots of jokes.
One of the most exciting things about this year in film is how diverse the industry has become in terms of LGBT representation. With films such as The Danish Girl, Freeheld, Tangerine and About Ray, among others, hitting on rarely explored topics relating to queer and transgender characters, the big screen is showcasing a variety of stories that are slowly shifting the landscape of how gender and sexuality are depicted in cinema. However, off screen discussions about coming out of the closet and embracing one’s sexuality have hardly changed for the better. If anything, recent comments by both Matt Damon and Tom Hardy reflect a larger problem in Hollywood that, at a moment of seeming progress, feels stuck in a former conservative era.
Stranded on Mars with only enough food to last about a year, Matt Damon’s astronaut Mark Watney has to do some seriously creative thinking — or, as the previous trailers suggest, he needs to “science the s—” out of his situation. In the latest clip from The Martian, Damon does a little math and feels confident in his unique botany skills.
Part of the fun comic book fans have had over the years is debating which superhero could defeat which superhero. Could Wolverine beat The Hulk? Could the X-Men beat The Avengers? There have been entire lines of books devoted to this very topic. Heck, Batman vs. Superman and Captain America: Civil War are both based on this very conceit. So, you can’t blame Matt Damon for getting into the fun when asked if his Jason Bourne, who he calls “my superhero”, could take his pal Ben Affleck’s Batman. As you might expect, Damon’s not stepping down from the challenge.
The Martian is probably the most fun you will ever have watching a bunch of nerds solve math problems.
