Tom Brady -- Sketch Artist Misses Again ... 'I Only Had 5 Minutes'

2 hours ago | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Matt Damon ... is that you?! After an epically bad first attempt, the sketch artist in the Deflategate court battle has taken another crack at Tom Brady ... and it definitely resembles someone from Boston ... just not the Qb.   We can all agree ... the new pic is an upgrade -- we're just not sure the guy in the pic would ever be able to score Gisele ... especially because he's missing a chunk out of his right arm. »

Matt Damon Talks Bourne 5

30 August 2015 12:34 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass back for more Bourne, the world naturally wants to know what might be happening to the central hero. While Damon – currently out promoting The Martian – isn’t giving too much up, he did drop some hints about the film’s tone, theme and locations. Greengrass and Damon have worked on the script for this one with Christopher Rouse, and the actor offered up a couple of nuggets about it to BuzzFeed. “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. What does the character have to say?” This time? It appears the biggest impacts are the financial situations in Europe and a certain whistleblower. “Without giving too much of it away, it’s Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Edward Snowden world,” Damon says. “It seems like enough has changed, »

30 August 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's been eight long years since super spy Jason Bourne disappeared into the night by sea in The Bourne Ultimatum, and after years of fans clamoring for more, Jason Bourne is finally ready to resurface. However, it should be noted that the world he left was vastly different to the world he'll reenter next July.  Speaking with Buzzfeed News, while promoting his October release The Martian, star Matt Damon spoke in length about his upcoming fourth Bourne adventure and why it's taken so long for him to reprise his most popular role to date. Damon started out by first reflecting on the original trilogy and how the films managed to serve as a sort of commentary on the Bush administration: “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...

Martin Scorsese short 'The Audition' pulled from Venice Film Festival No major international film festival is worth its mainstream U.S. media salt unless there's at least one screening featuring the latest work of a major Hollywood name.

Matt Damon Reveals Bourne Sequel Plot Details

29 August 2015 3:35 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

While promoting "The Martian," Matt Damon has been answering questions about the upcoming "Bourne" sequel, which is set to start filming next week. The actor explained that he and director Paul Greengrass had always considered "Bourne" movies about the Bush presidency. When President Obama took over, they waited until something changed to return. Because of Edward Snowden and the Nsa scandal, they felt it was the right time for another movie. "Without giving too much of it away, it's Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world," Damon said of the plot. "It seems like enough has changed. There are all these kinds of arguments about spying and civil liberties and the nature of democracy. We're starting in Greece, the beginning of democracy. And the movie ends in Las Vegas, the most grotesque incarnation of... [laughs]" The new "Bourne" film is set to hit theaters on July 29th, 2016. »

It’s the last weekend of August, dear readers, and the summer movie season is at an end. But there’s still plenty of cool stuff coming to our theaters this year, from James Bond to Star Wars and everything in between.

Upon discovering Watney’s signal Nasa, scientists all around Earth, and his crew members collaborate to find a way to rescue him.

28 August 2015 7:26 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

One thing sci-fi fans will be expecting this fall is a response from Neil deGrasse Tyson on the scientific authenticity of Ridley Scott's The Martian. But the celebrity astrophysicist is already endorsing the movie in a big way. He stars in a new promotional video as himself, hosting an episode of his show StarTalk that only exists within the universe of The Martian to discuss the fictional spacecraft The Hermes and its dangerous Ares 3 mission to Mars. At the end, after stating that Earth is the planet "to which we owe our creation" but "no longer seems destined to be our final resting place," we see a group image of the Ares 3 crew, characters played by Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan, Aksel Hennie and...

Perhaps the only person unhappy to hear that Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass will reunite for a fifth Bourne movie is Jeremy Renner. Why? Well, Universal essentially scrapped The Bourne Legacy follow-up which had its release date swiped by this anticipated release. It’s not exactly hard to understand why they did that of course.

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

28 August 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | 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 »

During his recent discussion with Buzz Feed, Matt Damon, who previously starred in The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, and The Bourne Legacy, which in turn helped to turn him into a legitimate action star, admitted that everyone involved had to wait for the world to change in order to bring a fresh edge to the series. He explained that after discussing the idea of a follow-up a number of times with director Paul Greengrass over the years, it wasn.t until Edward Snowden and the Nsa whistleblowing tales emerged that they felt they had a story worth telling.

Watch: Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Aren't Making A Reality Show in Exclusive 'Project Greenlight' Trailer

28 August 2015 9:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When you hear that "Project Greenlight" is a reality competition show, you might expect a "Project Runway"-style showdown series, but here's the twist: The winner gets picked in the first episode. That's because the show's focus — as vaguely well-known men about town Matt Damon and Ben Affleck explain in the above trailer — is on the truth of what it's like to actually make a film.  The fourth season of "Project Greenlight" follows the production of a comedy produced by the Farrelly Brothers, with a promise to focus on the difficulties underlying the art of filmmaking. Because with no time and no money, the drama is very real.  "Project Greenlight" Season 4 premieres September 13 at 10pm on HBO.  Read More: 12 Scripted TV Episodes That Take Down the Myths of Reality TV

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

28 August 2015 9:24 AM, PDT | 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

28 August 2015 9:11 AM, PDT | 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.”

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

28 August 2015 8:46 AM, PDT | 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, »

Neil deGrasse Tyson Guides You To The Red Planet In Latest Viral Clip For The Martian

28 August 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

To date, 20th Century Fox has supplemented its riveting full-length trailers for Ridley Scott’s The Martian with a trio of viral clips, designed to introduce the cast and crew of the Ares-3 before they embark on their daring mission to the Red Planet. Chief among those has been the character psych tests, allowing us to gain a gist of the personalities of the leading members of the crew, specifically Matt Damon’s cocksure Mark Watney and Jessica Chastian’s commander, Melissa Lewis.

Adopting a slightly different tactic this time around, the studio has unveiled an informative clip that stars famed American astrophysicist and cosmologist, Neil deGrasse Tyson, who channels his screen presence from the Carl Sagan-inspired Cosmos series to guide you from our pale blue dot across the solar system and onto Mars. It’s a neat, if self-indulgent, tease for The Martian, with Tyson documenting all of »
