Matt Damon explains why he's returned for a "post-Snowden" Bourne 5: 'It feels like the world has changed'

6 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Matt Damon long wanted to make Bourne 5 a reality - and all he needed was for the world to change.

The actor is re-teaming with director Paul Greengrass beginning next week on an all-new Jason Bourne adventure, after passing on 2012's Jeremy Renner vehicle The Bourne Legacy.

In an interview with Buzzfeed, Damon said that a massive change in global politics was needed before he could bring back Jason Bourne.

"We always looked at those movies as really about the Bush presidency, and so we kind of had to wait for the world to change," he explained.

"Without giving too much of it away, it's Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world. It seems like enough has changed, you know? There are all these kinds of arguments about spying and civil liberties and the nature of democracy."

While the plot remains tightly under wraps, Damon did let »

'Bourne 5' Shoots Next Week, Set in Post-Snowden World

7 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though the last movie in the franchise, The Bourne Legacy, debuted in 2012, we haven't seen Matt Damon as Jason Bourne in eight years, since he last played the character in 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum. And when Bourne 5 hits theaters in July of 2016, almost a full decade will have gone by. That's a lot of time, and a lot has changed in the world. Especially when it comes to civil liberties and democracy. In a new interview, Matt Damon confirms that these themes will be at the forefront of the new story his team is setting out to tell.

No real plot details have been released for Bourne 5. Though, the main cast is starting to come together, with newcomers Tommy Lee Jones and Alicia Vikander joining the sequel earlier this year. And Julia Stiles is returning to reprise her role as Bourne ally Nicky Parsons from previous installments. Though, these previous »

Matt Damon talks “post-Snowden” Bourne 5

8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While out on the promotional tour for his upcoming sci-fi film The Martian, Matt Damon has been speaking to BuzzFeed about his return as Jason Bourne in next year’s Bourne 5.

Details on the fifth film in the franchise (the fourth featuring Damon) are few and far between, but Damon has let slip that the new movie will be set in the wake of the revelations and leaks surrounding former CIA employee Edward Snowden.

“We always looked at those movies as really about the Bush presidency, and so we kind of had to wait for the world to change…Without giving too much of it away, it’s Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world. It seems like enough has changed, you know? There are all these kinds of arguments about spying and civil liberties and the nature of democracy.”

Of course, this is a spy film »

Matt Damon And Paul Greengrass To Tackle A “Post-Snowden World” With Bourne 5

8 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Throughout the course of the original Bourne trilogy – sorry, Jeremy Renner – director Paul Greengrass displayed a deft touch in assimilating some of the most hard-pressing political themes of the time into his espionage thrillers. Looking ahead to his future reunion with the filmmaker, Matt Damon recently teased the way in which the franchise has evolved since the release of Ultimatum, and how ultimately both he and Greengrass will be tackling a post-Snowden world with Bourne 5.

Such was the cultural impact of the Nsa whistleblower that Damon feels incorporating themes of informational control and democracy is an easy decision to make, and in an interview with Buzzfeed, The Martian star hinted at the kind of global thriller we can expect in Universal’s as-yet-untitled sequel.

“Without giving too much of it away, it’s Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world,” Damon said. “It seems like enough has changed, »

Matt Damon Shares Cool 'Bourne' Sequel Plot and Production Updates

11 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Jason Bourne is back in business, after an eight-year absence, in a 2016 "Bourne" movie starring Matt Damon, Julia Stiles, Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones, and (maybe?) Viggo Mortensen.

While promoting "The Martian," Matt Damon gave Buzzfeed some updates on the untitled "Bourne" sequel, which starts production next week. Damon said he and director Paul Greengrass had always looked at the "Bourne" movies as about the Bush presidency, so they took a page from John Mayer and waited on the world to change before revisiting Damon's character. Thanks to Edward Snowden and the Nsa scandal, they felt it was time to be Bourne again. Here are Damon's details on the new plot:

Without giving too much of it away, it's Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world. It seems like enough has changed, you know? There are all these kinds of arguments about spying and civil liberties and the nature of democracy. »

Damon Talks Fifth "Bourne" Ahead Of Filming

13 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Shooting is slated to begin next week on the fifth film in the popular Jason Bourne series, a film which sees the return of star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass who last worked on the third film "The Bourne Ultimatum" back in 2007.

Story details are being kept under tight wraps on the new film, but Damon himself has finally spoken briefly about the new film and how it will be very much set in a contemporary time. He tells Buzzfeed:

"Without giving too much of it away, it's Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world. It seems like enough has changed, you know? There are all these kinds of arguments about spying and civil liberties and the nature of democracy."

This has also impacted the film's locations it seems as Damon added:

"We're starting in Greece, you know, the beginning of democracy. And the movie ends in Las Vegas, »

The top 25 secret agents in film

27 August 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ahead of American Ultra's arrival in UK cinemas, here's our pick of the 25 finest, sneakiest secret agents in film...

Operatives. Spies. Moles. Infiltrators. Secret agents go by many names. In fact, Britain's national security agency doesn't even call them agents - they're covert human intelligence sources, or simply “officers".

Whatever we choose to call them, secret agents lead necessarily furtive and obscure lives - so obscure that most of what we know about them is defined by what we've seen and read in books and movies.

During the Cold War, the image of the secret agent as a well-groomed sophisticate in a suit proliferated all over the world, and even in the high-tech landscape of the 21st century, that image still stands - just look at such movies as Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and, of course, the Bond franchise. But secret agents can come in many other guises, »

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1986

26 August 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From thrillers to sci-fi to horror, here's our pick of 20 films from 1986 that surely deserve a bit more love...

A fascinating year for film, 1986. It was a time when a glossy, expensive movie about handsome men in planes could dominate the box-office, sure (that would be Top Gun). But it was also a year when Oliver Stone went off with just $6m and came back with Platoon, one of the biggest hits of the year both financially and in terms of accolades. It was also a period when the British movie industry was briefly back on its feet, resulting in a new golden age of great films - one or two of them are even on this list.

As ever, there were certain films that, despite their entertainment value or genuine brilliance in terms of movie making, somehow managed to slip through the net. So to redress the balance a little, »

James Spader interview and exclusive Blacklist featurette

17 August 2015 8:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Blacklist Season 2 is out on Blu-Ray and DVD today, so here’s an interview with the show’s star James Spader, and an exclusive featurette on the programme’s costume design. Try not to read the following in Spader’s glorious voice…

Will we find out this season if Red is Liz’s father?

No, you won’t find out about that. I think what you will find is you’re going to get closer. If it’s done the way we intend, once we reach the inevitable end of the series, you’ll look back and you’ll realize that there were things you found out along the way that you weren’t sure how to process and all of a sudden those things will connect. And that’s the fun of it; it’s almost like a puzzle, but unlike a puzzle where you empty the box »

'Men in Black' Return in Air New Zealand Safety Video

14 August 2015 3:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Air New Zealand likes to have a lot of fun with their passenger safety videos. They're most famous for their Hobbit and Lord of the Rings in-flight tutorials. But now they're back with a decidedly different franchise helping out. We don't exactly get to see Agents J and K, but Men In Black have returned. Hopefully your experience on Air New Zealand is nice enough that they don't have to Neuralize you.

Attempting to promote the fact that visiting New Zealand isn't all about disappearing into Middle Earth, the country's leading airline also wants you to know that they dig Rugby and one of the greatest sci-fi comedy franchises of all-time. And they've called upon some very special guests to help out in this latest inflight safety video. That includes an appearance from Mib head agent Zed, with Rip Torn once again reprising his iconic role.

The video was created in partnership with Sony Pictures. »

Forecast: 'Fantastic Four' Falls Apart

5 August 2015 8:01 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Forecast Update: Making a breathtakingly bad $2,829 per screen, Fox's Fantastic Four made $11.3M on Friday (with Thursday screenings added). Unless the wheels fall completely off the vehicle that should put Fantastic on the road to a $27M weekend. The only consolation at this point is international (reports still to come in) and that the reboot did better than Pixels ($24M its opening weekend). That also opens the door, wide, for Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation to come in first place. The Gift is doing better than expected, making $4.12M in Friday totals (with only $585K of that from Thursday), placing it in the $10M range. That's better than The Box (which, for some reason, is the first movie we think of in association with this) which made $7.5M in 2009 ($8M adjusted to 2015 prices). Ricki and the Flash made $2.2M and looks to finish the weekend with $7.2M. That's half of the take of Hope Springs, »

Why Specialty Films Are Going Gray

5 August 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Silver-topped moviegoers can lead to gold for filmmakers looking to take a breather from mining big-budget franchise fare.

Older audiences have turned out in force this year, pushing films like “Woman in Gold” and “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” to healthy returns at the specialty box office, with Ian McKellen starrer “Mr. Holmes” also off to a strong start. This month brings comedies “Grandma” and “Ricki and the Flash” pitched at the Aarp set.

“These people want to go to movies, they like to go to movies, they’re in the habit of going to movies,” said Jack Foley, distribution chief at Bleecker Street, the distributor of niche hit “I’ll See You in My Dreams.”

Meanwhile indies like “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” and “Dope,” that which catered to blockbuster-friendly younger audiences, have faltered. Of course, younger moviegoers continue to be the driving force behind the biggest summer blockbusters. »

Why You Should Revisit Faye Dunaway's Kinky Giallo 'Eyes of Laura Mars'

3 August 2015 1:25 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Director Irvin Kershner’s stylish thriller is reminiscent in more ways than one of Mario Bava’s 1964 giallo, "Blood and Black Lace"; each film contrasts the glamorous world of high fashion with the lurid crime spree of a brutal serial killer. As the fashion photographer whose sadistic photo spreads resemble crime scenes, Faye Dunaway begins to experience visions of real-life murders, including her own. Tommy Lee Jones and Brad Dourif co-star and John Carpenter co-wrote the script (from his own story) with David Goodman. »

Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence Jet Skied Together Using the Power of Celebrity Friendship, the Most Sustainable Fuel There Is

30 July 2015 9:53 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

"We've heard so much about Amy Schumer recently," internet commenters across the land bellowed en masse. "Could you possibly tell us even more about her? And maybe, while you're at it, could you let us know what that Jennifer Lawrence is up to, too?" Could we ever! As it turns out, America's sweetheart and the singular representative of all the complexities of feminism went on what looks like the world's most delightful Jet Ski ride together! Lawrence was driving, of course — when you're an Oscar winner, you don't hand over the reins to anyone, except maybe Tommy Lee Jones — and Schumer tweeted a pic of the experience with the telling hashtag "#maniac." This photo is such a perfect blend of everything that everyone loves that somewhere, Jimmy Fallon is looking for a way to set it to '90s music. »
