Box Office: Matt Damon’s ‘Jason Bourne’ Shoots Down $4.2 Million on Thursday

9 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal’s “Jason Bourne” has opened with a solid $4.2 million in Thursday night preview screenings at 2,928 locations in North America.

Matt Damon’s fourth “Bourne” movie is expected to dominate the weekend with about $50 million at 4,025 theaters. He’s returning to the signature role as a former CIA assassin for the first time since 2007’s “The Bourne Ultimatum,” which launched with a $69.3 million weekend.

Paul Greengrass directs “Jason Bourne,” which also stars Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Julia Stiles, and Riz Ahmed. Greengrass also directed “The Bourne Supremacy” and “The Bourne Ultimatum.”

Tom Cruise’s “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” opened with $55.5 million over the same weekend last year. “The Bourne Legacy,” starring Jeremy Renner, debuted with $38 milllion in 2012.

Universal will also release “Jason Bourne” in 42 international markets over the weekend.

Dave Franco Explains How Wanting to Have Sex With Christopher Mintz-Plasse Launched His Career

10 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

You might think that Dave Franco's career was always a given, that he would be offered big roles by virtue of being the younger brother of the already successful James Franco. That is simply not the case. Sure, name recognition no doubt helped the younger Franco when he was landing tiny cameos in movies like Superbad as Greg the Soccer Player, but as he pursued juicier roles he found himself going through the same audition process as any other actor.  Franco's big break out was 21 Jump Street. After that he started getting key roles in major movies like Warm Bodies and Now You See Me. But as Franco explained to us in a recent interview for his new movie Nerve, none of those projects would have happened were it not for a very vulgar short film he'd made with...

Weekend Box Office Preview: ‘Jason Bourne’ Returns, ‘Bad Moms’ Could Surprise

16 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With sequel “Jason Bourne” leading the way, this weekend’s three new wide studio releases should provide an uptick during this seesaw summer season, which is down from 2015 despite a surge of animated blockbusters, continues to stage a rebound this weekend.

Last weekend saw “Star Trek Beyond” at $59 million pushing Top Ten grosses up significantly from the previous year. Now “Jason Bourne,” which is projected to end up in similar territory, could be joined by two other openers, Stx’s R-rated femme comedy “Bad Moms,” and younger-audience thriller “Nerve” (Lionsgate) combining to gross what last week’s other two openers (“Ice Age: Collision Course” and “Lights Out”) took in (just over $40 million combined). That plus reasonable holdover totals should propel the weekend substantially above the $136 million brought in last year at the same time.

The question is whether “Jason Bourne” will measure up to late July 2015’s “Mission: Impossible—”Rogue Nation, »

Nerve Review

19 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Pretty-faced high schoolers play a deadly online game of truth or dare in Nerve, a breakneck thriller inspired by the gutless, faceless, merciless keyboard warriors who spit venom at others on blogs, message boards, comment sections and any other dark corner of the internet they can weasel their way into.

This movie moves, and it moves fast: in rapid succession, it dishes out heart-stopping stunts and set pieces that will pleasantly surprise those going in expecting a bloodless Ya romp. Plot, acting and dialogue range from mediocre to average, but it’s hard to linger on the movie’s myriad downfalls thanks to the quick pace it maintains throughout.

Venus “Vee” Delmonico (Emma Roberts) is a hard-working, level-headed high school senior who’s earned herself acceptance into CalArts. She hasn’t told her mom (Juliette Lewis) yet because she knows it’d break her heart if she left her to »

Box Office: Dave Franco, Emma Roberts Thriller ‘Nerve’ Rattles $3.8 Million

19 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate’s “Nerve” has opened with a solid $3.8 million at 2,538 U.S. locations on Wednesday as the thriller got a two-day jump on the launches of “Jason Bourne” and “Bad Moms.”

Nerve,” starring Emma Roberts and Dave Franco in a cautionary tale about the dangers of cybergaming, received an A- CinemaScore overall and an A from those moviegoers under 25. The opening day indicates that “Nerve” may come in at the top end of forecasts, which had projected between $12 million to $15 million over its first five days in theaters.

That’s a respectable performance so far, given its budget of under $20 million. Wednesday’s gross included $1.1 million from  Tuesday night preview screenings.

Nerve” is directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, and written by Jessica Sharzer, based on Jeanne Ryan’s novel of the same name. Juliette Lewis also stars.

Weekend Forecast: 'Jason Bourne', 'Bad Moms' and 'Nerve' Hit Theaters

22 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass return to the Bourne franchise after a nine year, one film hiatus as Jason Bourne is looking at a #1 finish as it debuts in over 4,000 theaters this weekend. The weekend also features the R-rated comedy Bad Moms and Nerve, a PG-13, teen-targeted thriller that opened on Wednesday with $3.75 million and hopes to find an audience over the weekend as a piece of counter-counter-programming. Looking at a comfortable first place finish is Universal's Jason Bourne, the fifth film in the Bourne franchise and fourth starring Damon in the title role following the lackluster response to 2012's The Bourne Legacy starring Jeremy Renner. That said, this should be looked at more as a sequel to The Bourne Ultimatum, which opened with $69.2 million in August 2007. Of course, this year has not been kind to the majority of sequels. Following last weekend's opening for Star Trek Beyond and Ice Age: Collision Course, »

Cara Delevingne and Dave Franco's Rap Battle Is So Intense, It Will Almost Make You Uncomfortable

23 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Cara Delevingne plays a villainous enchantress in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie, and she's proving that some of her character's wicked ways might have rubbed off on her. During an appearance on The Late Late Show on Wednesday, the actress joined Dave Franco and host James Corden in one of the harshest "Drop the Mic" sessions we've ever seen. Not only does she completely burn Dave for being James Franco's little brother, but her dig at James's Carpool Karaoke sessions might actually make you shift in your seat. See who comes out on top in the video above. »

Word to the wise: Don't challenge Cara Delevingne to a rap battle. The model-turned-actress squared off in a rap battle against Dave Franco and host James Corden during an appearance on The Late Late Show Wednesday night. Corden grabbed the mic for the first round, taking his aim at Franco by saying he isn't "famous enough" to appear on the show. "I'm pretty sure we actually meant to book your brother," rapped the host. Turning to Delevingne, he poked fun at her acting chops saying, "When I see you try to act it makes me want to kill myself."

Watch Cara Delevingne and Dave Franco rap battle on 'The Late Late Show'

28 July 2016 6:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Late Late Show With James Corden's recurring segment "Drop The Mic." in which celebrities rap battle with host James Corden, returned last night to feature a three-person battle: Corden, Dave Franco, and Cara Delevingne. The three took turns trading funny insults, but who came out on top?  Most of the good-natured cracks were predictable: Delevingne's eyebrows, Franco being less famous than his older brother, Corden's, sigh, weight. But for the most part, it's still a pretty fun segment. Watch below and see if you agree with the winner: »

Cara Delevingne and Dave Franco Take Down James Corden in Drop the Mic Rap Battle

28 July 2016 5:51 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Is it just us or are these Drop the Mic segments getting more and more intense?! Dave Franco and Cara Delevingne stopped by The Late Late Show Wednesday and entered into what might have been the fiercest rap battle yet on the late-night show. As per usual, host James Corden kicked off the battle and immediately went in on Dave and Cara. "We can all agree you're not famous enough for it," Corden began, referencing Dave's appearance on the show. "Don't worry there's still time for you to be discovered / But I'm pretty sure we actually meant to book your brother [James Franco]." And that was just the warm-up. Next up was model-actress Cara, whose feelings he definitely »

Cara Delevingne Is Picture-Perfect in 3-Way Rap Battle on Late Late Show

28 July 2016 5:26 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

CBS’ The Late Late Show just may have solved its “Drop the Mic” problem — in that half the jokes were about James Corden’s weight, yawn — by adding a third front to the rap battle.

On Wednesday night’s Thursday morning’s telecast, Corden traded beat-laden verbal beat-downs with not just model/actress Cara Delevingne (who has a role in the upcoming Suicide Squad), but also actor Dave Franco. That makes for a greater variety of zingers, (playfully) poking fun at Delevingne’s acting chops, Franco being Scrubs‘ cause of death and… well, yeah, Corden being a shorter, stockier James Bond. »

One Day at a Time Reboot Gets Premiere Date at Netflix

Netflix (perhaps in a happenstance manner) celebrated Norman Lear’s 94th birthday by announcing on Wednesday a premiere date for its “reimagining” of One Day at a Time, one of myriad sitcoms the TV legend shepherded over the decades.

Premiering Friday, Jan. 6, 2017, the new series follows a Cuban-American family led by a recently separated, former military mom (Queen of the South‘s Justina Machado) as she navigates a new single life while raising her radical teenaged daughter (Matador‘s Isabella Gomez) and ‘tween son (Marcel Ruiz), with the “help” of her old-school, Cuban-born mom (Egot winner Rita Moreno) and a »

Second Opinion – Nerve (2016)

27 July 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Nerve. 2016.

Directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman.

Starring Dave Franco, Emma Roberts, Machine Gun Kelly, Brian ‘Sene’ Marc, Emily Meade, Miles Helzer, Kimiko Glenn, Marc John Jeffries, and Juliette Lewis.

Synopsis:

A high school senior finds herself immersed in an online game of truth or dare, where her every move starts to become manipulated by an anonymous community of “watchers.”

The sub-genre of movies where game shows go too far, becoming highly dangerous and careless to the life of the participants isn’t necessarily an original concept, but directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (Paranormal Activity 3) are approaching the concept from a refreshing angle that definitely adds an intriguingly substantial layer of relevant social commentary to Nerve. The problem is that there isn’t enough focus given to the many different floating sub-plots that would give them the weight mandatory to actually make any of what is happening »

'Nerve' Review: It's 'Pokemon Go' as a Gonzo Horror Movie

27 July 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

There's a killer idea circling this tricked-up teen thriller, which is more than you can say for most summer movies. But the idea never lands because Nerve lacks the, well, nerve to follow through on its convictions. These days, with Pokemon Go turning smartphone app users into digitally-led zombies, a film about a livestream online game that dares its users to risk their lives for likes, follows and cash rewards couldn't be more timely. Directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, who had us all questioning our web contacts with the 2010 documentary Catfish, »
