No one can agree on the top 5 greatest Coen Brothers films

4 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As we began talking about editorial content we could publish to celebrate the release of Hail, Caesar!, the latest film from Joel and Ethan Coen, we realized that none of us had the same top five lists, and that it seems unusual for that to be the case. The Coens have had such a rich and varied career that it is impossible to pin them down to one style or one theme or one type of storytelling. Some people love their comedies. Some people love it when they get dark. Some people love the underdogs, the least-liked of their films. But what's clear is that every film they've made has its fans, and even their worst films are beloved by someone. There are few artists like the Coen Brothers, and we were delighted to get lists from each of our special guest contributors this time. The diversity of the replies »

How the Coen Brothers Survived Hollywood and Lived to Make ‘Hail, Caesar!’

3 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Coen brothers are just as quirky as the characters from their movies. Just ask Josh Brolin, who has collaborated three times with the writer-directors, including on the upcoming “Hail, Caesar!” He recalls meeting the brothers on his “No Country for Old Men” audition, and not knowing what to do with the awkward silences. “Joel was intimidating,” Brolin says. “He didn’t say anything.” Months later, he was having dinner with Ethan, and noticed his friend continually glancing at his lap. “I looked down,” Brolin says. “He had been reading a book under the table. I was like, ‘Come on!’ ”

In this age of Twitter and Instagram, the directors of such beloved classics as “The Big Lebowski,” “Blood Simple” and “Raising Arizona” are still fairly private — and awkward with press interviews. Although they grew up together making films on their Super 8 cameras in Minnesota, »

First Trailer For Bourne 5 Set For Opportune Super Bowl Debut

29 January 2016 12:50 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Super Bowl 2016 is little over a week away and already, studios across the industry are aligning their major 2016 blockbusters to be showcased during the sporting event. One of the tentpole releases vying for your attention is Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon’s Bourne 5, and Universal has now slated the first-look trailer to be revealed alongside the Super Bowl on February 7.

At least, that’s according to Eric Van Lustbader, official write behind some of the Bourne novels. In a now-pulled post via Facebook, Lustbader expressed his own excitement about the seemingly imminent reveal, where we’ll also catch wind of the sequel’s official title. Here’s the post in question via ScreenCrush:

“The first trailer for the new Bourne film will be shown during this year’s Superbowl telecast. At that time I believe you’ll find out the title of the film. (I know it, but I’m »

When to Expect a Bourne 5 Trailer

29 January 2016 9:55 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The next Bourne film is a long time in the making. After the disappointment that was 2012's The Bourne Legacy, the studios knew they'd have to bring things back to Jason Bourne himself if they wanted to continue the franchise. So they did just that.

They locked down Bourn Supremacy and Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass, as well as the series star Matt Damon. In addition, a good portion of the film is already in the can, as principal photography began last September. With its release date of July fast-approaching, the only thing fans are wondering is: where is the first trailer?

Sure, there's still half a year until the movie is set to hit theaters, but that's never stopped the hungry fans from asking. Luckily, author Eric Van Lustbader--who continues the legacy of Robert Ludlum with his own Bourne books--has our backs, and took to Facebook to tell us »

"Bourne 5" Trailer To Air With Superbowl

29 January 2016 8:02 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The first trailer for the fifth film in the Jason Bourne series, one which sees the return of star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass after bowing out of the last one, is coming next weekend.

Eric Van Lustbader, the author who took over the Bourne novel series after Robert Ludlum's death, confirmed on his Facebook page that the film's title and first trailer will be revealed during the Super Bowl on Sunday February 7th.

The Bourne films have so far kept the same order as the titles of the books, which means the new one will most likely be called "The Bourne Betrayal ".

The story will pick up in the present day with Bourne "in a dark and tortured place" and one which takes him through a post-Snowden, austerity-riddled Europe. Julia Stiles, Tommy Lee Jones, Vincent Cassel, Alicia Vikander, Riz Ahmed, Scott Shepherd, and Ato Essandoh also star. »

Our countdown of the top 100 films of the 21st Century (so far) concludes here with the top 25.

Click here for Part 1! (#100-76)

Click here for Part 2! (#75-51)

Click here for Part 3! (#50-26)

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn »

Alicia Vikander Hints At “Action-Driven” Role Opposite Matt Damon In Bourne 5

21 January 2016 9:19 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Don’t let the lack of subtitle fool you, Universal’s Bourne 5 is still barreling down on its July release window. In fact, before the turn of the year, lead star Matt Damon revealed that Paul Greengrass’ franchise revival was past the halfway point in production, meaning the studio is likely prepping for post-production and VFX work as filming begins to wind down. But just how extensive will those CG effects be?

While the actress couldn’t comment on production or indeed the story specifics of Bourne 2016, Ex Machina breakout Alicia Vikander recently sat down with The Wrap to discuss her role opposite Damon in the upcoming espionage sequel.

Though Vikander didn’t realise it at the time, starring in Guy Ritchie’s action thriller The Man From U.N.C.L.E. has offered moviegoers a fleeting glimpse at how the Swedish actress fares in the genre, though Vikander will seemingly have a »

Alan Rickman, 'Die Hard,' and the commitment of being a classic movie villain

14 January 2016 7:22 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Galaxy Quest" was far from the most famous Alan Rickman movie, but it may feature his most autobiographical role. As Alexander Dane, a classically trained Shakespearean actor (who's constantly boasting of the five curtain calls he received for playing Richard III) forever typecast as the alien warrior he played on a cult classic TV show, Rickman was riffing not only on Leonard Nimoy's difficult relationship with Mr. Spock from "Star Trek," but also on the strange and wonderful nature of his own career. Rickman, who died today at 69 from cancer, studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, and gained acclaim for his role as the Vicomte de Valmont in the 1985 Broadway production of "Les Liaisons Dangereuses." And while he did spectacular and nuanced work in more highbrow films like "Sense and Sensibility" and "Truly Madly Deeply," the bulk of his fame came from a pair of genre pieces: the first "Die Hard, »

Will His Fifth Nomination Be the Charm? A Brief History of Leonardo DiCaprio and the Oscars

14 January 2016 6:05 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Break out your lucky charms, find a shooting star to wish on and light the candles in front of your Titanic shrine - Leonardo DiCaprio has earned his fifth Academy Award nomination, for playing fur trapper Hugh Glass in The Revenant.

Awards Flashback! See 19-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio Contend for a Golden Globe

7 January 2016 6:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

In 1993, Leonardo DiCaprio was a handsome teenager with only two feature films under his belt - and he was already gunning for Oscar and Golden Globe success. Twenty-three years later, DiCaprio is heaping praise for his turn as 1800s frontiersman Hugh Glass in The Revenant and is up for his eleventh Golden Globe nomination at Sunday's award ceremony. But it was the 1993 drama What's Eating Gilbert Grape, wherein DiCaprio portrayed a mentally challenged Iowan, that gave the now-41-year-old his first taste of stardom and life on the awards circuit. In a 1994 appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, »
