Egyptian Star Amr Waked Joins Sky’s Neil Jordan ‘Riviera’ TV Series (Exclusive)

23 September 2016 9:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rome — Egyptian actor Amr Waked, his country’s biggest international star, has joined the cast of Neil Jordan’s “Riviera” as a French detective investigating the yacht explosion that precipitates the plot of the high-profile TV crime series.

Waked, who also played a French cop in Luc Besson’s “Lucy,” will play a detective named Delormes who is “trying to decipher a very complicated case,” the actor said. The show is being produced by London-based Archery Pictures for pan-European pay-tv network Sky.

Billionaire Constantine Clios is killed in the explosion, after which his new wife, Georgina, played by Julia Stiles, “is shocked to discover [that] the fortune that maintained his immaculate, ever-so-tasteful lifestyle is tainted with dishonesty, double-dealing, crime, and ultimately murder,” according to Sky’s press notes.

Riviera” is among the flagship titles in the pipeline of Sky’s Sky Atlantic network.

‘Heirloom’ Creator Paten Hughes Left New York To Grow Tomatoes, and Reclaimed Her Acting Career

14 September 2016 10:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Take a stroll through your local farmer’s market this weekend, even if it’s only to ogle the foodies reveling in the abundance of their favorite time of year: Heirloom tomato season.

If that’s not enough to inspire you to whip up some fresh gazpacho, check out “Heirloom,” an artful new web series on Vimeo. When the movie that was supposed to be her big acting break suddenly fell apart, creator and star Paten Hughes absconded to her family farm in the Sonoma Valley to grow tomatoes. At the time, she had no clue that those tomatoes would lead to her greatest role yet.

Jason Bourne Review

21 August 2016 12:32 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Bourne franchise has been a critical and box office win, so it isn’t at all surprising that we found ourselves with The Bourne Legacy a few years ago, but when it was announced that Matt Damon would return to the series after nearly a decade, that had to make you wonder.

Jason Bourne was either a film with a story impressive enough to pull in the requisite cast and crew, or enough people needed money that they were willing to knock something out. You had to imagine it was one of those.

The first twenty minutes of the film let you know what side we’re on, especially if you’re a fan of the series and director Paul Greengrass.

We open with Bourne apparently going about what has become his humdrum life, traveling from one illegal (I guess) mixed martial arts/boxing/whatever match to another. Audiences »

How Amy Schumer Convinced Goldie Hawn to Make Her First Movie in 15 Years: 'She Probably Thought I Was a Psycho'

11 August 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Convincing Goldie Hawn to come out of retirement was no easy feat for Amy Schumer - especially considering Hawn hadn't really heard of her. "I met her on an airplane a couple of years ago and told her there's a movie I really want to make with her," Schumer explains to The Los Angeles Times. "And she was very nice. 'Ok, honey.' She probably thought I was a psycho. 'Ok, crazy person.' " That's probably because not only had Hawn not made a movie in 15 years, she also wasn't familiar with Schumer's work. But the outspoken comedian is nothing if not persistent. »

Movie Review – Jason Bourne (2016)

9 August 2016 2:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jason Bourne, 2016

Directed by Paul Greengrass.

Starring Matt Damon, Julia Stiles, Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Riz Ahmed and Tommy Lee Jones.

Synopsis:

After almost a decade off the grid, rogue assassin Jason Bourne must return to the dark intelligence conspiracy which created him when a face from his past reveals the black ops project has started once again…

You all know the story. Neither star Matt Damon nor director Paul Greengrass ever intended to make Jason Bourne. It was the sequel to a trilogy they had (largely) crafted together for many years neither intended to do without the other, or without a worthy reason. Tony Gilroy’s The Bourne Legacy attempted to expand outward a franchise without realise Bourne himself was the reason we watched, not the mythology, and finally Damon & Greengrass, in the post-Edward Snowden landscape of global surveillance, hipster young geniuses becoming profligate in starting billion dollar companies, »

Jason Bourne: Truths Are Revealed about Bourne’s Past in action-packed Film.

2 August 2016 10:59 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

“I volunteered because of a lie.” This line from the new Jason Bourne movie trailer intrigued me. So much so I purchased advanced tickets to see the film on the silver screen. The film also showcases Matt Damon’s directorial chops as well as his impeccable acting skills. The film opens with a recap of Bourne’s memories. Then it fades to reveal former CIA operative Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles) hacking into the agency’s database in Iceland. She downloads files containing top-secret information about various black operations that CIA is planning to put into effect. One of which is Treadstone, the black-ops

Movie Review – Jason Bourne (2016)

1 August 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jason Bourne, 2016.

Directed by Paul Greengrass.

Starring Matt Damon, Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones, Vincent Cassel, Julia Stiles and Riz Ahmed.

Synopsis:

The most dangerous former operative of the CIA is drawn out of hiding to uncover hidden truths about his past.

To say that I love the original Bourne trilogy is a massive understatement. Each film is perfect from start to finish. We start with the amnesia paranoia of The Bourne Identity, the revenge saga of Supremacy and then the crescendo with Ultimatum. It’s a perfect sequence of films packed with great story, phenomenal action sequences and more conspiracy theories then you can shake a stick at. Whilst the fifth instalment in the franchise (after the forgettable Bourne Legacy), offers more of the same in terms of action and style, it doesn’t deliver on the same level as the previous entries.

An ode to the women of the ‘Bourne’ movies

Glance at promotional photos from the Bourne films, and you'll see something like this: Photo credit: Universal Studios And this: Photo credit: Universal Studios Those production stills may lead you to believe this espionage series largely features a dominant dude pushing around a helpless woman. That couldn’t be further from the truth.  Jason Bourne is unmatched in the field — as a fighter, as a quick thinker — but the women who are along for the ride, who support Bourne, and/or who butt heads with him bring their essential skills and qualities to the table, and, played by talented actresses, make this series a captivating thrill to watch more than Matt Damon ever could on his own. Spoilers Ahead for all five Bourne movies, including the conclusion of new film Jason Bourne. For a series that had next to no women onscreen in its first 14 minutes (not until Bourne gets »

Jason Bourne earns $110 million on its opening weekend

1 August 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The film has had rather mixed reviews, but Jason Bourne certainly came out all guns blazing at the box office.

Going up against Star Trek Beyond in its second week, Jason Bourne earned around $60 million at the domestic box office, which is the second biggest opening for the franchise behind The Bourne Ultimatum‘s $69 million back in 2007. It’s also $22 million more that the Jeremy Renner headlined The Bourne Legacy, which shows audiences are interested in seeing Matt Damon return to the role.

Boxofficemojo are also reporting that Jason Bourne is one of the more successful franchise sequels this year, dropping 13.4% from its predecessor compared to the 2016 standard 14.5%.

Jason Bourne also pulled in another $50 million worldwide, giving the film a total of $110 million. With a production budget of $120 million, Universal will be rather happy with this result.

It will be interesting to see if the studio greenlight another Bourne film. »

Matt Damon open to another Bourne movie, if Paul Greengrass returns

31 July 2016 7:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Jason Bourne topping the box office with an estimated domestic opening weekend of $60 million [read our reviews here and here], Matt Damon has revealed to Entertainment Weekly that he’s open to another return to the spy franchise, assuming Paul Greengrass once again returns as director.

“Yeah, it’s definitely open,” states Damon, who has starred in four of the five Bourne movies to date, having skipped 2012’s The Bourne Legacy. “I’m tied to Paul, whatever he wants to do.”

“We’re friends, so it would always come up in conversation,” Damon added with regards to how Jason Bourne came about. “We didn’t want to dive into one unless we could make a movie that fit in that family and felt worthy. It’s kind of deceptively tricky, and so I think we were just leery of making it look like a job that was taken on cynically by any of us. To »

Jason Bourne: More Than a Rerun, Because He’s Never Been More Relevant

30 July 2016 8:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On screen, the “Bourne” thrillers, from “The Bourne Identity” (2002) to the new “Jason Bourne,” have always been powered by a cool contradiction. A movie about a brainwashed human-robot ex-cia assassin — or rather, a movie in which a brainwashed human-robot ex-cia assassin is the hero — starts off, let’s not kid ourselves, as more of a right-wing fantasy than a liberal one. That’s why Matt Damon’s Jason Bourne, to fit the paradigm of liberal Hollywood, has to be an assassin who’s gone rogue. He’s not on the side of the sinister CIA honchos who want to assert their will in the world; he’s against them. He’s on our side. He’s up against those who destroyed his identity and turned him into a jujitsu sociopath to serve the U.S. agenda.

That’s why, on the movies’ own terms, he’s someone to root for. »

Box Office: Matt Damon’s ‘Jason Bourne’ Rules with $61 Million

30 July 2016 7:17 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Matt Damon’s “Jason Bourne” is dominating moviegoing with an estimated $61 million opening weekend at the domestic box office.

That’s more than double its closest rival, raunchy comedy “Bad Moms” with about $27 million and as much as $30 million at 3,215 locations.

Universal’s fifth film in its sturdy Bourne franchise is performing well above forecasts with an opening day taking in about $23 million at 4,026 sites. Stx’s “Bad Moms” grossed $9.6 million on Friday at 3,215 locations.

Lionsgate’s thriller “Nerve,” which opened Wednesday, took in $3.2 million on Friday at 2,538 theaters for a weekend of up to $9 million and a five-day total of about $15 million.

“Jason Bourne” is Damon’s fourth film as a former CIA assassin dealing with memory loss. The franchise launched with 2002’s “The Bourne Identity,” followed by 2004’s “The Bourne Supremacy” and 2007’s “The Bourne Ultimatum.” Damon did not appear in 2012’s “The Bourne Legacy,” which starred Jeremy Renner. »

Film Review: Matt Damon is Fighting Mad in Tense ‘Jason Bourne’

30 July 2016 4:57 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – To come back to a character that everyone thought he had left behind, Matt Damon needed the right creative team. He got it again in co-writer (with Christopher Rouse) and director Paul Greengrass, and together they fashioned a paranoid spy tale in the rat-a-tat “Jason Bourne.”

Rating: 4.0/5.0

The strength of the story is in its modern context. The underground Bourne re-emerges in riot torn Greece (during its economic crisis), the CIA is in cahoots with a social media billionaire, plus the hackers and the rogue agents are more heroic than our institutions of “law and order.” The multi-layering of a desperate world blends with Matt Damon’s desperate character, a bitter killing machine trying to remember anything about a past that was taken away from him.

Ex-special agent Jason Bourne is in the “freezer,” as they say at the CIA, and he spends his days bare knuckle brawling on the Greek/Albanian border. »

Second Opinion – Jason Bourne (2016)

29 July 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jason Bourne, 2016.

Directed by Paul Greengrass.

Starring Matt Damon, Julia Stiles, Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Tommy Lee Jones, Ato Essandoh, Riz Ahmed and Scott Shepherd.

Synopsis:

Jason Bourne, now remembering who he truly is, tries to uncover hidden truths about his past.

While doing some research on The Bourne Franchise (I have seen the first three but have not seen the fourth film that didn’t star Matt Damon) to fully get the plot of Jason Bourne correct in my head, I came across this interesting quote from Matt Damon that is most definitely relevant to its hiatus and resurrection.

“I think in terms of another one, the story of this guy’s search for his identity is over, because he’s got all the answers, so there’s no way we can trot out the same character, and so much of what makes him interesting is that internal struggle that was happening for him, »
