Make no mistake, San Diego Comic-Con is the current hub of all movie news coming out of Hollywood – a trend that will no doubt continue throughout the course of the weekend. But long before any of those marquee features descend into theaters, Universal is primed to welcome back Jason Bourne in little under a week’s time.

It could jump-start a new series of movies to feature Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass, with Universal adamant that both actor and director will want to remain in the Bourne sub-genre “until they can’t do them anymore.” A bullish statement, of course, but considering that one of today’s all-new TV spots champion the sequel-cum-reboot as the “best Bourne yet” leads us believe that at the very least, Damon and Greengrass will get together for a direct sequel in the coming years. »

Kevin Smith Geeks Out With Matt Damon

10 hours ago | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Comic-Con weekend marks the debut of new, pop culture themed chat show Geeking Out, hosted by Kevin Smith (who could have another, Comicbook Men like hit on his hands) and Jj Abrams' lucky charm Greg Grunberg. To pimp the very Jason Bourne heavy first episode, the first clip from the show has come our way, and it’s short, sweet, and a hell of a lot of fun with Matt Damon doing cold reads of famous superhero lines from comic books. His delivery of Shazam is reason enough to watch. Check it out below. »

Matt Damon’s butt is to thank for the sound of ‘Bourne Identity’

21 July 2016 12:04 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

“The whole key to Bourne in 2002 was Matt Damon’s ass.” That’s what composer John Powell told the Comic-Con crowd during a panel today. Powell recalled that when he first wrote some of the score of Bourne Identity, he got the feedback that the music was too fast-paced. But “[Bourne]’s not in a rush. A lot of it was really based on the speed of Matt Damon’s buttocks. That’s where the main riff came from,” Powell said on the panel of film and TV composers, called Musical Anatomy of a Superhero. Seriously, watch those movies closely and you’ll see this guy doesn’t break a sweat. Damon had to have the least Adr for grunts of effort of any action hero. He doesn’t need to run. He doesn’t need to catch his breath. Cause he’s that badass. »

Matt Damon Still ‘Bewildered’ by His ‘Team America’ Portrayal

21 July 2016 11:08 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Confused by the way Matt Damon was portrayed in Trey Parker and Matt Stone‘s 2004 puppet epic “Team America: World Police”? You’re not the only one. Damon was pretty befuddled by it himself. During an Ask Me Anything Q&A session on Reddit on Wednesday, the “Jason Bourne” star admitted that he was “kind of bewildered” by the portrayal, which painted the actor as a moron who’s barely able to utter his own name. “I was always kind of bewildered by ‘America,’ I think because it’s hard for us to understand what our images are in public, »

Ava DuVernay is Basically Owning 2016

21 July 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

And it’s only the summer.(Charley Gallay/Getty Images)

Ava DuVernay is having the best week ever. In fact, she’s having a pretty awesome year, which is much deserved for the Oscar nominated director and super awesome Power Woman. On Tuesday, her documentary The 13th was announced as the opening night film for the 53rd Annual New York Film Festival in September, making her the first African American director and first documentarian to accomplish such a feat. On Wednesday, we caught a glimpse of the first trailer for Queen Sugar, which DuVernay created and directed alongside Executive Producer and fellow Power Woman Oprah Winfrey. Through these projects and others in the pipeline, Ava DuVernay has proven she has her finger on the pulse of entertainment and culture, and is thus basically owning 2016.

The 13th is Ms. DuVernay’s first directorial effort since the Martin Luther King biopic Selma (2014), which was nominated for an Academy Award »

Jason Bourne sees original actor and director, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass, return to the iconic series they created along with Alicia VikanderJulia Stiles, Vincent Cassel and Tommy Lee Jones.

Jason Bourne: Universal planning many further sequels

Simon Brew Jul 21, 2016

Universal wants Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass to make more Jason Bourne films. Lots more Jason Bourne films...

Arriving in cinemas at the end of next week is the fifth film in the Bourne movie series, but crucially, the fourth to see Matt Damon play Jason Bourne. He returns to the series – along with director Paul Greengrass – after neither was involved in the underwhelming The Bourne Legacy. It would be fair to say that Universal has very high hopes for the reunion.

So much so, that plans are afoot for many further sequels. Universal chair Donna Langley was chatting to The New York Times about the future of the series, and she said that “here’s what I think the goal is: to keep Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass doing Bourne movies till they can’t do them anymore”.

Matt Damon Shows You How to Stage a Proper Movie Bar Fight in Insightful New Video

20 July 2016 3:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Action stars like the “Jason Bourne” franchise’s Matt Damon are badasses. They’ve kicked plenty of villain butt and know how to fight in all kinds of situations. Right? Well, not exactly. In a GQ video, the magazine’s August cover star Damon reveals that movie fights may look spontaneous and real, but are actually more intensively choreographed than one may think — so much so that Damon would call them dancers.

Universal wants more Matt Damon-Paul Greengrass Bourne movies until forever

20 July 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

Maybe The Bourne Legacy really did have a purpose. Oh, we know it wasn't to entertain us, for, if that was the case, it failed miserably (as we are all well aware). But maybe it was to get both sides of the rift that made that movie even happen (Universal on one end, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass on the other) remembering how fruitful their initial partnership was, so that they'd...

Jason Bourne: Universal Wants Matt Damon And Paul Greengrass To Create As Many Movies As Possible

If Universal’s plan holds true, fans won’t be waiting another nine years before seeing Matt Damon’s hardened super-spy Jason Bourne light up multiplexes again. Though both actor and his long-time director Paul Greengrass consistently denied claims that they’d return for a fourth film in the series, the allure of Bourne – particularly now in the current social and political climate – proved too strong.

And so, we arrive at Universal’s soon-to-be-released action reboot. Early buzz is certainly positive, and while box office figures will no doubt determine the eventual future of the series, the studio’s chairwoman Donna Langley told The New York Times (via The Playlist) of her desire to maintain a steady stream of Bourne movies – with Damon and Greengrass on board, of course.

Newswire: Matt Damon “gets it,” but doesn’t support removing guns from Jason Bourne ads

20 July 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Earlier this month, producer Tami Sagher became frustrated with the level of gun imagery in the ads for Jason Bourne in light of all of these recent shootings. So she shared a photo on social media of a poster for the film with the gun ripped off, along with a caption telling people around New York to do the same thing. Lena Dunham, who worked with Sagher on Girls, shared the post and called it a “good idea.”

Now, E! News has asked Jason Bourne stars Matt Damon and Julia Stiles about the “tear guns off of posters” movement, and though they don’t exactly support it, they’re not as opposed to the idea as you might think. Damon says he “totally” gets it and “doesn’t blame [Lena Dunham] at all,” adding that he understands why people might not want to see pictures of guns right ...

Universal Want Damon-Led "Bourne" Forever

20 July 2016 12:13 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After a nine year break, actor Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass return with "Jason Bourne," the fifth film in the spy thriller franchise and their third collaboration on the series.

For years the pair held out from doing another Bourne film unless it was together, Universal went ahead without them a few years ago to not much success. Nevertheless all left the door open for more somewhere down the line with that day finally arriving next week.

Speaking with The New York Times, Damon says it was the public's consistent asking of him to make another one that finally got him around to doing it:

"At a certain point, I said to Paul, 'People really want to see this movie, and that's not something to turn our noses up at'. Having made movies that didn't find an audience, I didn't want to thumb our nose at this opportunity. It's »

Matt Damon's Touching Story About What It Was Like to Work With Robin Williams Will Break Your Heart All Over Again

20 July 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

Matt Damon waded into the sometimes perilous waters of Reddit on Wednesday to engage in one of the site's much-loved "Ask Me Anything" discussions to promote his latest movie, Jason Bourne. Although he touched on what it's really like to play the titular super spy (there's a lot of being upside down underwater in cars, apparently), the actor's most interesting answer wasn't about the Bourne franchise at all. Instead, Matt shared a touching anecdote about his time on set with the late Robin Williams while filming his breakout role in 1997's Good Will Hunting: "Working with Robin almost defies description. He was one of the most generous, loving, wonderful people I've ever met. He had this capacity that I've never seen on a movie set. When everyone started to get tired and started to flag a little bit, he would launch into standup. We knew it was original because »

The Bourne Ultimatum was like a fairy tale ending. The film seemingly tied up every loose end in the saga of amnesiac super-spy Jason Bourne in the most satisfying way possible.
