'Jason Bourne' Is Fast and Furious in First Trailer and Poster

8 February 2016 5:34 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Matt Damon is returning for the fifth film in the "Bourne" series, and if you bet on "Jason Bourne" as the official title, you were right. And you were probably lying. Every other "Bourne" film, including the one that starred Jeremy Renner instead of the actual Bourne, was called "The Bourne [Something]." So this is an unorthodox title and gives us a clue that they may be trying something different across the board.

The first trailer -- shown during the 2016 Super Bowl -- and poster emphasize, James Bond-style, that we know this guy's name. Maybe it's meant to show how the man who could be calling himself David Webb or any other name (Tyler Durden?) is now embracing his Bourne to Kill status, after a long (presumed dead?) absence since 2007's "The Bourne Ultimatum."

We hear Bourne say he knows who he is, he remembers everything, and it sounds like Julia Stiles »

2016 Oscar Previews: Part 1

7 February 2016 5:11 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The 88th Annual Academy Awards will take place Sunday February 28th at 8:30pm Eastern time. Here is our overview of the major awards nominees in case you didn’t get to see them yourself. 

There’s always a lot of talk leading up to the big day about who will win what awards. We try to make our predictions based on trends from the past, but we can’t help to be swayed by our own personal opinions. Some movies truly strike a chord with us, while others aren’t interesting at all. Furthermore, Oscar films are usually heavy in the drama department and therefore they aren’t always the easiest or most entertaining movies to watch.

That’s why we’re here. Here is your guide to the nominees of this year’s Academy Awards. We’ve compiled the following brief summaries, interesting facts, and critical reviews for all these films and people. »

Watch: Matt Damon Is The Perfect Weapon In Super Bowl Spot For ‘Jason Bourne’

7 February 2016 4:30 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Set place in 2004, it’s been twelve years since we’ve seen Matt Damon’s now iconic super spy Jason Bourne in movie years. Last we left him off in “The Bourne Ultimatum,” the super agent had discovered the story of his true identity, was presumed dead, but was actually swimming to safety in the East River. Meanwhile, at the end of "The Bourne Legacy," supervisor Pamela Landy (Joan Allen) is thrown under the bus by the CIA during Federal investigations when the Blackbriar and Treadstone operations are exposed. But in the newly titled “Jason Bourne,” the fourth installment of the Jason Bourne series and the fifth in the overall series, the super resourceful agent has finally resurfaced. Why? Gleaning from the trailer, Nsa surveillance technology has finally tracked down his whereabouts. But more importantly, a new plot has come to light that has caught’s Bourne attention and made »

'Brooklyn,' 'Room' Add to Oscar Nominations Haul with Canadian Screen Awards Nods

19 January 2016 10:36 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

A24's "Room," fresh off three Oscar nominations (including Best Picture) and a solid arthouse expansion, received another flurry of nominations Tuesday for the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television's 2016 Screen Awards: 11, to be exact, including Best Picture, Best Director Lenny Abrahamson, Best Adapted Screenplay Emma Donoghue, Best Actress Brie Larson, Best Actor Jacob Tremblay, and Best Supporting Actress Joan Allen.  Read More: "10 Ways the Golden Globe-Nominated 'Room' Filmmakers Wrote Their Own Script (Exclusive)" "Room" will be joined in the Best Picture category at the CSAs by fellow Oscar contender "Brooklyn," which also received Csa nominations for Best Cinematography ( Yves Bélanger) and Best Original Score (Michael Brook). Guy Maddin and Evan Johnson's fascinating "The Forbidden Room"—rather too outré for the Oscars—also made an impressive showing, with three Csa nominations, including Best »

Room review

17 January 2016 10:41 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Brie Larson stars in the superb Room. Here's our review of one of the best films of the last few years...

It's funny how a number of this year's Oscar favourites have namesakes in very dissimilar from previous years. Inside Out is also a British thriller in which Telly Savalas and Robert Culp try to recover Nazi gold, The Revenant is also a dark comedy about a zombie-vampire hybrid, and one must hope that somewhere, Tommy Wiseau is dusting off his tux and his football, confused but vindicated by how his legendary cult classic The Room is finally getting some buzz.

Meanwhile, on a far more serious note, Room has scooped a number of Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director for Lenny Abrahamson and Best Actress for Brie Larson. It's definitely not to be confused with anything that has gone before and it's hard to think »

ABC’s primetime lineup is getting some new neighbors this spring, and it seems they are in a very fragile state.

TVLine can exclusively reveal the official poster for The Family, the network’s upcoming drama about the Warren clan and the events that transpire when their presumed-dead son (played by Psych‘s Liam James) suddenly returns years after a disappearance — but is he really who he says he is?
