Jason Bourne Super Bowl Spot – 15 Things You Need To See

8 February 2016 9:23 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Jason Bourne is back. Not in the underwhelming spin-off of Jeremy Renner, but the original, exciting form of Matt Damon. A stipulation of Damon returning to the Bourne franchise was that director of the second and third instalments, Paul Greengrass, would also return and so we have master of the shaky-cam back as well.

Also along for the ride are a host of great actors; Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel and even veteran grump Tommy Lee Jones will be chasing/fighting/running from Jason Bourne in some capacity.

The Jason Bourne Trilogy is one of the best action franchises of all time. It hurled Matt Damon into the limelight and highlighted him as a man who could handle punches as well as drama, and it ultimately decided the direction the Daniel Craig Bond movies would take. The constant, unrelenting pace along with the visceral action sequences have never been replicated »

'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 »

Why Is British Acting Dominated By The Privately Educated?

7 February 2016 4:07 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at a recurring issue in British film and television…

While the debate about the lack of nominations for black actors at the Oscars rumbles on in the Us, a similar debate is happening in Britain. However, in the UK the debate is not about race; it’s about class. The argument goes that the top-tier of acting talent is dominated by a privately educated elite.

Last year Labour MP Chris Bryant bemoaned the lack of diversity in the arts world, complaining that it was dominated by those who were educated privately. More recently Damian Lewis was involved in a minor controversy about him being invited to his local comprehensive school for an event as he had been educated at Eton. This week acting icon Diana Rigg hit out at those complaining about upper class actors dominating our screens by pointing out that the opposite was »

Oscar’s Song Crop Ranges from ‘Simple’ to Complex

3 February 2016 2:37 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This year’s batch of Oscar original song nominees represents quite the motley crew, with an operatic aria on one end of the spectrum and a bumping, post-coital soul track on the other.

“Earned It,” from “Fifty Shades of Grey,” earned first-time nominations for the Weeknd (aka Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, who performs), Ahmad Balshe, Jason Daheala Quenneville and Stephan Moccio.

The slow, sexy waltz plays as Jamie Dornan drives a conflicted Dakota Johnson home after a night of consummation, then reprises at the unresolved close of the film into the credits.

“(Director) Sam Taylor-Johnson wanted a song that had more soul to it, and, more importantly, that was coming from a male perspective,” Moccio says.

The song, which features Moccio on piano, is based on just two chords. Only toward the end does it shift into other harmonic territory, “where the strings kind of go wild,” he says. “That was »

Watch Spectre Get Ripped To Shreds In Brutal New Honest Trailer

2 February 2016 4:15 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Though it was hugely hyped up, especially following on the heels of Skyfall, one of the most financially and critically successful James Bond movies ever, Spectre wasn.t quite as great as everyone hoped. It simply left a lot of people flat and didn.t bring anything new to the table for the franchise that.s been going for more than 50 years. Given the less than optimal results, you probably knew this was coming, but Spectre got its very own Honest Trailer today. The latest offering from Screen Junkies picks Spectre apart in typically brutal fashion. I actually enjoyed the movie well likely the worst of the Daniel Craig-era, and it.s little more than paint-by-numbers Bond, but that.s still more entertaining than most movies out there. Still, even with that, a lot of the points in this video are spot on and warranted. Spectre »

Watch: Honest Trailer For Bond-By-The-Numbers 'Spectre'

2 February 2016 10:16 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

James Bond returned last fall with "Spectre," and the movie has not achieved the commercial success of "Skyfall" nor did it continue the franchise revitalization vibe of "Casino Royale." So what was it? Well, Screen Junkies is here with their latest Honest Trailer to break it all down. Read More: Review: Sam Mendes' 'Spectre,' Starring Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux & Ralph Fiennes   Calling it quite accurately "Bond-by-the-numbers," the video takes the movie to task for dully running down the expected Bond tropes, including fancy cars, gadgets, catchphrases, and women (or as they call them, "underdeveloped female sex objects" —zing). This Honest Trailer also calls out the predictable Blofeld reveal, as well as the film's penchant for board meetings, briefings, and other stuff you don't want to see in a Bond movie. Check out the Honest Trailer takedown of 007 below. »

8 Things Everybody Missed In Star Wars: The Force Awakens

1 February 2016 6:31 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


$2 billion at the box office, a RottenTomatoes rating in the nineties and merchandise profits that must eclipse those from cinemas: it’s fair to say Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the massive hit everybody expected.

Its biggest success can’t be quantified with simple numbers though. After the prequels left lifelong fans feeling empty and George Lucas’ subsequent work on the series saw it become a cynical parody of itself, The Force Awakens made everyone excited about Star Wars again; spin-off prequel Rogue One is one of 2016’s most anticipated movies and people are already developing complex theories for how Episode VIII and beyond will go down.

And, of course, while we wait for more to come, fans have intently analysed the new film, dissecting every scene and looking deep into J.J. Abrams’ mystery box for Easter eggs, references and in-jokes. Since release so many of the film »

A Bond Fan Looks at 2015

1 February 2016 1:14 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Image Source:

I will admit that one of the things I actually enjoy at the start of every year is looking at “best of” lists for the year before, especially those that deal with my two favorite topics; music and movies.

For me, the big event of 2015 was the release of the new James Bond film Spectre. The Bond films have been one of my guilty pleasures since I was a teen, I even enjoyed the Roger Moore ones, where Bond was transformed into more of a comic-book (in a bad way) hero than the world’s most badass secret agent. Some kids collected super-hero stuff; I collected James Bond and Ian Fleming memorabilia.

Even though Spectre just missed making the top 10 in terms of box-office receipts (it came in at number 11), many people categorically stated that the latest Bond was “officially not a hit.” They have »

The Week in Star Wars – Ewan McGregor talks The Force Awakens, Boba Fett in Rogue One, more movies after Episode IX, Kevin Smith’s role in The Force Awakens revealed and more

31 January 2016 9:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Your weekend edition of The Week in Star Wars has a look at the costumes for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Harrison Ford presenting Star Wars Land, more movies after Episode IX and writer-director Kevin Smith’s role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is finally revealed…

We’re kicking things off this week by looking – get this – past Star Wars: Episode IX. When Disney first announced they’d purchased the rights to make more Star Wars movies, they initially announced a new trilogy to take us up to 2019, which was then followed up announcements for spin-off (or Anthology) movies in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (with rumours of a Boba Fett one in there too). It was assumed by the fanbase that this new trilogy would then mark the end of Star Wars. No so, says Disney’s Bob Iger. »

Famed Game Designer Hideo Kojima Featured As An Easter Egg In Star Wars: The Force Awakens

28 January 2016 2:02 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Across three decades, 10 canonical titles and countless cinematic easter eggs, Metal Gear creator and celebrated Game Designer Hideo Kojima is a master of craft when it comes to layering intricate and complex narratives with fun moments of fan service.

So, when the opportunity presented itself for Kojima to be included in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the auteur simply couldn’t resist. Granted, it’s a very, very minor shoutout, though we imagine that’s exactly the kind of nod Kojima-san would have wanted.

Kevin Smith's Cameo Revealed in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

27 January 2016 1:44 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in June 2014, just a few months after production started on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we got one of the first reports directly from the set from a somewhat surprising source: filmmaker Kevin Smith. The filmmaker recounted his set visit during one of his many podcasts, and while he didn't divulge too many specific details, he did reveal that the Millennium Falcon would return. Now that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a massive hit, LucasFilm is starting the pull the curtain back from this secretive production even more, with revealing a list of the "additional voices" used in the film, one of which was Kevin Smith.

The scene where Kevin Smith's voice is used is during the First Order attack on Maz Kanata's (Lupita Nyong'o) castle. The filmmaker/actor voices a Stormtrooper, who, when reacting to incoming Resistance fighters, says "We have incoming at 28.6! Move! »

Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson: Controversial Casting Adds Fuel to Hollywood’s Diversity Debate

27 January 2016 11:38 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With the entertainment industry currently embroiled in a debate over the lack of diversity in film, UK pay TV network Sky Arts may have picked the wrong time to announce that British actor Joseph Fiennes will play pop icon Michael Jackson in a new half-hour comedy special.

The project, “Elizabeth, Michael and Marlon,” will center around an unlikely road trip that Jackson and friends Elizabeth Taylor (Stockard Channing) and Marlon Brando (Brian Cox) allegedly took from New York to Ohio in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001.

In a statement regarding Fiennes’ casting, Sky Arts said, “‘Elizabeth, Michael and Marlon’ is a Sky Arts comedy which takes a light-hearted look at a reportedly true event; Joseph Fiennes is cast as Michael Jackson. It is part of a series of comedies about unlikely stories from arts and cultural history. Sky Arts gives producers the creative freedom to cast roles as they wish, »

25 movie trailers that gave away way too much

27 January 2016 5:31 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




From Terminator films and Jurassic World through to trailers with the ending in them...

One of the trailers for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is the latest to ignite grumbles about just how much is given away in promos for movies.

This list looks at 25 films where the trailer has given away more than it really should in its promos - and it goes without saying that spoilers lie ahead for each of the movies. Don't read or click on individual entries of films you've not seen if you don't want to be spoiler sullied!

25. Jurassic World

Director Colin Trevorrow was amongst those who expressed disappointment at this one particular promo for Jurassic World. In it, we see Chris Pratt riding on his motorbike, alongside velcoraptors that surprisingly don't appear to be eating him. Presented out of context, the scene just looked a little daft. But »
