Interview: Tobias Lindholm on the Oscar Nominated 'A War' and Creating Time on Film

12 February 2016 1:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Writer/Director Tobias LindholmJose here. In Tobias Lindholm’s A War, the hardest battle for Danish commander Claus M. Pedersen (Pilou Asbæk) comes not in the warzone of Afghanistan, but in a courtroom back home where he faces prison time for a tactical decision that ended the lives of civilians. A thoughtful essay on the rules of humanity during wartime, the film remains largely apolitical while still engaging audience members who might question the very nature of foreign invasions, the need for war, and our roles as humans in a world that pits us against each other. Directed with confidence by Lindholm, the film remains outside any specific genre while providing a master class in how to create tension, intimacy and thrills.

A War has been nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar and Lindholm isn’t completely unfamiliar with the experience, having also worked as a writer in the 2012 nominee The Hunt. »

Everything We Know About the New 'Jason Bourne'

9 February 2016 6:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

"Why would he come back now? asks Tommy Lee Jones in the brief trailer for Jason Bourne that debuted during the Super Bowl. That's a good question, as it's been nine years since we last saw the title character, in The Bourne Ultimatum (he was absent from the 2012 spinoff The Bourne Legacy). Fortunately, we have some answers, care of Matt Damon via Entertainment Weekly. Here's all we know about the upcoming sequel:   Seriously, why is Bourne back now?   As far as why the franchise has brought the character back, Damon and director Paul Greengrass finally saw enough change in the world for there to be an interesting story. "There’s been the financial collapse, the great recession, all these issues of cyber warfare and civil liberties...

"Jason Bourne" To End Damon's Storyline?

9 February 2016 8:22 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Those hoping the upcoming "Jason Bourne" will serve as a glorious rekindling of the 'Bourne' franchise after the stumble of "The Bourne Legacy," think again.

In a new interview with EW, star Matt Damon says the upcoming Paul Greengrass-directed film won't serve as refresh so much as a footnote to the first three films - effectively ending Jason Bourne's story. Speaking about his character's arc for the new film, Damon says:

"He's living with the same things as he was before, and then he goes to find Julia Stiles' character, who basically says, 'Just because you remember everything, doesn't mean you know everything.' So you find him in a place that's dark and unresolved.

This is the completion of this journey that started in the Bourne Identity. It's part of the first three [movies], it's not a whole new chapter. It feels like the conclusion, even though we're not saying it's the conclusion, »

Matt Damon Says Universal’s Jason Bourne Revival Will “Go Deeper Than Ultimatum”

9 February 2016 6:40 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You know his name. For the first time in almost a decade, Matt Damon is primed to reprise his role as hardboiled killing machine Jason Bourne for Universal’s 2016 sequel, and the actor recently shed some light on the character’s state of mind in a post-Ultimatum world.

As was revealed during the pulse-pounding Super Bowl teaser, Bourne 5 will open at a time when the world stands on the brink of war, and we’re assuming that has something to do with Damon’s super-spy returning to the game.

More News From The Web

Shaking off a crippling spell of amnesia, Jason Bourne is arguably fitter than ever – the “perfect weapon” – though the actor hinted that we’ll find him in a place that’s “dark and unresolved” come July.

Per EW:

“He’s living with the same things as he was before, and then he goes to find Julia Stiles’ character, »

Matt Damon has been chatting about Bourne 5, and where Jason Bourne will be heading...

Yesterday, we finally got the first footage from the upcoming fifth Bourne movie, that we now know as Jason Bourne. Matt Damon returns in the title role for the fourth time, and Paul Greengrass is back too, directing his third Bourne movie.

A few more details have now emerged about the movie, courtesy of an interview that Damon has done with Entertainment Weekly. And he's been nattering about how Jason Bourne fits in following the apparent conclusion of the character's story in The Bourne Ultimatum.

"He’s living with the same things as he was before, and then he goes to find Julia Stiles’ character, who basically says 'just because you remember everything, doesn’t mean you know everything'. So you find him in a place that’s dark and unresolved", Damon said. »

Matt Damon says Jason Bourne's identity journey will conclude in new film

8 February 2016 4:27 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Our first real look at Jason Bourne arrived just a day ago during the Super Bowl and I have to say, I'm officially back on-board the Jason Bourne train. The last time we saw Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) in The Bourne Ultimatum, he'd discovered his true identity, exposed Operation Blackbriar, and escaped from from those out to kill him. At the time, both Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass felt that... Read More »

Matt Damon comes out of the shadows in the poster for Jason Bourne

After The Bourne Legacy failed to fire audiences up like the previous entries, Universal Pictures hit up Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass once more in hopes that they'd want to return to the universe that they helped to build. Fortunately for us, they said, "Yes!" Yesterday's Superbowl brought us the first TV spot for the upcoming Jason Bourne, and now we have the first poster... Read More »

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 »

Universal

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 wasn't the best movie trailer of Super Bowl Sunday shown on TV?

8 February 2016 4:10 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

To be honest, it feels like the studios just don't care anymore. There was a time starting in the late '90s where each year, the Super Bowl trailers were bigger and more amazing. The studios really pulled out all the stops to try to dazzle this gigantic captive audience, and this Sunday, on what should have been the biggest Super Bowl show of all time, everything felt perfunctory. Phoned in. Just one more commercial or trailer or spot. I liked the Jason Bourne spot. "When the world is at war, we need the perfect weapon" seems like a pretty good line to reintroduce Matt Damon's superspy to the franchise that was as much a showcase for Paul Greengrass as it was for Damon. Having the two of them back makes this one of this summer's biggest events as far as I'm concerned. The commercial itself was fine. Didn't knock me out. »

Matt Damon is back in action in first Jason Bourne teaser and poster

8 February 2016 1:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first teaser for the fifth entry in the Bourne franchise was finally unveiled during a Super Bowl 50 commercial break. In the footage, Matt Damon is back in action as Jason Bourne, the role that solidified him as an action star well over a decade ago. The upcoming project was previously untitled, but the new TV spot confirms that the film’s official name is simply Jason Bourne. Take a look below…

Additionally, the film’s first poster saw its release; it features the tagline “You Know His Name” and shows a very serious Jason Bourne standing in the shadows…

Damon last played the CIA operative in 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum, the final installment in the initial Bourne trilogy. Following the film, Damon decided to walk away from the series, so Jeremy Renner took over leading man duties for 2012’s The Bourne Legacy. While the film wasn’t a flop by any means, »

Matt Damon returns as Jason Bourne - and here's the first footage in the film's Superbowl spot...

One of the few summer blockbusters to have not yet shown its hand - at least until now - is Matt Damon's return to the role of Jason Bourne. Along with director Paul Greengrass, he departed the series after The Bourne Ultimatum, and has returned for Bourne 5. And we've now got the first glimpse of footage from the new movie.

We've also got confirmation of its title. Bourne 5 is now officially called Jason Bourne, and this was confirmed via its brief-ish Superbowl spot.

Here, then, is the first official footage from the film we now know as Jason Bourne...

A synopsis has also been released, which reads thus...

First TV Spot for Paul Greengrass' 'Jason Bourne' Starring Matt Damon

7 February 2016 8:14 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Remembering everything doesn't mean you know everything. Universal has released the first TV spot for Jason Bourne, the new sequel/reboot starring Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, once again nine years after Ultimatum. It's directed by Paul Greengrass, returning again also nine years after Ultimatum. I've got to be honest - this is a badass re-introduction to Bourne to drop. There's some seriously kick ass action footage in this, though that's all there seems to be - action. Matt Damon is also credit on the screenplay, which means he's fully invested. Also starring Alicia Vikander, Julia Stiles, Tommy Lee Jones, Vincent Cassel and Riz Ahmed. Hope we get to see more soon. Watch below and let us know your initial thoughts. Here's the first Super Bowl TV spot (+ poster) for Paul Greengrass' Jason Bourne, direct from YouTube: Matt Damon returns to his most iconic role in Jason Bourne. Paul Greengrass, »

Jason Bourne First Look: Matt Damon Is Really Mad, Really Ready to Break Cars and Faces

7 February 2016 5:20 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jason Bourne is back, but he doesn't feel the same way about early-2000s nostalgia as you might. You see, he remembers everything (except for the rules of the road), and he's ready for the biggest punch party of the year. Recall how upset Matt Damon looked in producer Frank Marshall's first pic, multiply that level of frowning by a few, and you'll get the mad, road-rage-y "perfect weapon" you see in the first-look teaser above. Bourne vet Paul Greengrass helmed this project, which may or may not be about cyberwarfare, with writing help from Christopher Rouse. Their movie — also with Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Tommy Lee Jones, and Julia Stiles — comes to theaters July 29, just in time to save the world and boost hand wrap sales. »

‘Jason Bourne’ gets its Super Bowl trailer & official title

7 February 2016 4:43 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Updated: The studio have also now released the first one-sheet poster for the film. See it at the bottom of the post.

The upcoming fifth Bourne movie has just got itself a Super Bowl trailer, and it seems an official title. Jason Bourne, which is led by Matt Damon in the title role, is still filming, but will see the light of day in cinemas later this year. What’s great to see is that Universal and director Paul Greengrass have packed as much as possible into this first 30-second trailer, that also includes footage from the Las Vegas action sequence, which we believe was only filmed just over a week ago.

Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Julia Stiles and Ato Essandoh also star in Jason Bourne. Watch the Super Bowl TV spot below.
