Leonardo DiCaprio: Looking at potential Best Actor contenders

15 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Folks, as you all know from last year as well as my articles again so far this year, it’s one thing to read early Academy Award predictions at this point in the year in order to see what folks like myself think will happen six or so months from now, but it’s another thing entirely to actually know something about what will be in contention. To help out in that regard, I’m once again running down some of the major contenders in each Oscar category in order to prep you all for the season to come. Basically, the format will have me saying a few words about what/who I feel are the top tier contenders right now in said categories, along with a longer list afterwards of many of the other hopefuls that the Academy might take a shine to. Consider this a sort of before »

It.s been made clear, however, that there are still plans for Renner in the Bourne universe. This leads fans to wonder if the two characters will ever cross paths. If that decision is ever made, you can count Aaron Cross in. Speaking with ScreenRant as part of the promotion tour for Mission:Impossible-Rogue Nation Renner said that he loves the Bourne franchise and would be interested in working with (or against) Damon if the studio ever makes that call: Yeah, I mean in two seconds. I love that world. I love the character. If they want to do that, I.m in. there.s no .no. coming from this direction.   It.s hard to imagine that there would be a " »

Special Feature: Five forgotten casino movies

30 July 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

Movies set in casinos conjure up evocative mental images of bright lights or dark rooms filled with blackjack tables, roulette wheels and rolls of the dice. Just think of the Ocean's Eleven franchise, the Edward Norton and Matt Damon-starring Rounders or (of course) Martin Scorsese's Casino. Gambling movies can be like sports movies in the sense that it can be hard to convey on screen the sheer thrill of the game or give a sense of the rules in most cases - but they're not all like that. Here are a few that stand out for unique reasons of their own. While there's a strong possibility that you may have heard of at least some of these films, it's likely you haven't seen all of them. So, here's an introduction for the uninitiated - or a reminder to rewatch for casino movie aficionados.

Matt Damon Is A Long Way From Home In New The Martian Screenshots

30 July 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Seeing Matt Damon in an astronaut suit may evoke bad memories for Interstellar fans, but forget Dr. Mann, for in Ridley Scott’s Oscar-tipped space oddity The Martian, the actor is playing an intrepid explorer cast astray on the Red Planet.

With no option but to “science the shit” out of his surrounding supplies, Damon’s lone astronaut is forced to carry out a mini-terraforming mission, growing food on a hostile environment that is designed for anything but. First off, his Mark Watney will be forced to send out an Sos signal from the sun-scorched planet, before hunkering down for a gruelling 4 years as the Ares 3 crew return for the man they left behind.

Lifted from the pages of Andy Weir’s eponymous best-seller, there’s already tremendous amount of buzz surrounding The Martian following its spine-chilling first trailer. With a cast that includes Jessica Chastain, »

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation review – functional old-school action thriller

30 July 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Tom Cruise’s unlikely survival as a traditional action hero continues with this spy-thriller franchise’s fifth instalment, which makes no significant attempts to update the formula

The increasingly stately Tom Cruise/Mission: Impossible action-adventure franchise is now almost 20 years old. It has employed as directors Brian De Palma, John Woo, Jj Abrams, Brad Bird and now Christopher McQuarrie – and got through female leads including Emmanuelle Béart, Thandie Newton and Michelle Monaghan. During its existence, the competing Bourne franchise with Matt Damon has come and gone. But M:i just continues, and so does its star Tom Cruise – now 53 years old, but buff of bod and tight of ab and looking hardly older now than when he started in the series, which gave him a turbocharged boost as an A-list star in an era when such creatures were thought to be becoming extinct. Now he’s even developing Jack Reacher on the side as well. »

Following the first trailer for Warner Bros.' The Martian that debuted last month, the studio has released new photos, courtesy of Total Film. These images show Matt Damon's Mark Watney, stranded on the Red Planet all by himself with no way back to Earth.

Tommy Lee Jones On For The Next Bourne

28 July 2015 11:42 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With Paul Greengrass, Matt Damon and, more recently, Julia Stiles reported as back on Bourne duty for the new instalment, it’s time to start tracking down other cast members. Tommy Lee Jones is the latest announced actor aboard, looking to bring his particular brand of gruff grumpiness to a role. He’s joining a cast that already includes Damon (back as Jason Bourne), Stiles (Nicky Parsons) and Alicia Vikander (an unknown new character) for a film with a plot being predictably kept quiet. How Jones will fit in is also largely to be discovered, though Variety has heard whispers that he’ll be some sort of CIA official, along the lines of David Strathairn or Brian Cox in previous films. Naturally, he may end up looking for Bourne, so what he’ll want from each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, »

28 July 2015 3:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Universal Pictures and the filmmakers still haven't decided on an official title for the Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel, the cast continues to grow. Variety reports that Tommy Lee Jones has signed on for Bourne 5, portraying a "superior officer at the CIA." The role is being compared to the characters played by Chris Cooper, David Strathairn, Brian Cox and Edward Norton in the first four Bourne movies.

Tommy Lee Jones will be joined by Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, Julia Stiles as Nicky Parsons and Alicia Vikander, whose role has not yet been revealed. We reported last month that Viggo Mortensen was being sought to portray the main villain, but his involvement has never been confirmed yet. Universal is also moving forward with a separate sequel for 2012's The Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, but producer Frank Marshall has confirmed that there are no current plans for Jason Bourne »
