27 July 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This weekend, Matt Damon returns to the big screen in the blockbuster “Jason Bourne.” It’s the character and franchise that saved the actor’s career after it went slightly sideways following “Good Will Hunting,” but he has always kept a healthy mix of mainstream and independent fare on his CV. However, the audience hasn’t always been […]

Newswire: Matt Damon’s all in for a Rounders franchise

27 July 2016 7:19 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Matt Damon’s made a lot of movies, including several of the Jason Bourne and Ocean’s Eleven variety. He’s actually out stumping for Jason Bourne right now, which will see him taking out his foes, efficiently and thoroughly. While on The Rich Eisen Show, the Martian star talked about the great fun that was had, breaking necks and playing pranks, in both those franchises. But when the host asked him which properties he’d actually revisit, Damon revealed that the cinematic world he’d like to flesh out is one of straight flushes and big blinds.

If you hadn’t guessed from our admittedly lame poker references, Damon’s talking about Rounders, the John Dahl-directed film he made after Good Will Hunting, where he again played a gifted, charming guy with a past. That eminently re-watchable movie—which had everyone wondering if they were the sucker at »

Matt Damon Reveals Why Indie Films Get Shut Out of Movie Theaters

26 July 2016 9:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Occasioned by the arrival of “Jason Bourne” in theaters this week, Matt Damon is discussing…the state of independent film. The actor, producer and screenwriter, who first came to international fame when he and Ben Affleck won an Oscar for their “Good Will Hunting” screenplay, bemoaned to Metro during an interview that “the movie, the $15-60million drama, is gone. They just don’t make that movie any more.”

This is “a bummer” for Damon personally, as such projects were once his “bread and butter” but now find themselves relegated to TV. “There’s still work there, but the indie movies you’re talking about, yeah, they’re tough to find.” He points to the shrinking DVD market as one reason for the change, saying it “severely cut into the margins that studios »

Movie Review – Jason Bourne (2016)

26 July 2016 12:00 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.

And like that, we find ourselves being beaten to a bloody pulp once more by chiseled anti-hero Jason Bourne. Nine years after his last punchy outing, sentient beef cake Matt Damon returns, literally punching his way across Europe. Now remembering his true identity, Bourne finds himself back in and amidst the sinister government programmes he so desperately tried to escape. All this as CIA Director Robert Dewey (played with a level of growl only Tommy Lee Jones can achieve) and Heather Lee (Alicia Vikander) attempt to track him down.

Unlike many a blockbuster director, Paul Greengrass, an adept documentarian – seems to encourage physicality; fight sequences look convincingly bruising, »

Matt Damon talks returning to the role of Jason Bourne

Matt Damon talks returning to the role of Jason BourneMatt Damon talks returning to the role of Jason BourneColin Covert7/25/2016 3:18:00 Pm

"Why would he come back now?”

So asks Tommy Lee Jones’ stern CIA chief about the surprise return of Jason Bourne, the tough-as-nails rogue field agent played by Matt Damon. After three films where the fugitive agent couldn’t be intercepted, followed by a decade spent off the grid (and movie screens), he’s back for the aptly titled Jason Bourne.

Why would he come back now? Damon, director Paul Greengrass, Universal Studios and a huge fanbase simply wanted to see Bourne born again.

Before Damon played Jason Bourne in director Doug Liman’s 2002 franchise kickoff The Bourne Identity, his career largely consisted of sensitive dramatic parts or supporting comic roles. Few of them showcased the Oscar-winning skills he displayed as co-writer and star of 1997’s Good Will Hunting. »

Matt Damon's Touching Story About What It Was Like to Work With Robin Williams Will Break Your Heart All Over Again

20 July 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Matt Damon waded into the sometimes perilous waters of Reddit on Wednesday to engage in one of the site's much-loved "Ask Me Anything" discussions to promote his latest movie, Jason Bourne. Although he touched on what it's really like to play the titular super spy (there's a lot of being upside down underwater in cars, apparently), the actor's most interesting answer wasn't about the Bourne franchise at all. Instead, Matt shared a touching anecdote about his time on set with the late Robin Williams while filming his breakout role in 1997's Good Will Hunting: "Working with Robin almost defies description. He was one of the most generous, loving, wonderful people I've ever met. He had this capacity that I've never seen on a movie set. When everyone started to get tired and started to flag a little bit, he would launch into standup. We knew it was original because »

Will Matt Damon Join Ben Affleck's Batman Movie?

12 July 2016 4:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Will Matt Damon join Ben Affleck in the upcoming Batman Reboot? The actor is currently out making the rounds for his latest movie Jason Bourne. He has reunited with director Paul Greengrass for the fifth installment of that franchise, which is a pretty big deal. Inevitably, the subject of playing a superhero came up. And apparently Damon is not opposed to the idea, as long as his friend and Good Will Hunting partner is behind it.

Matt Damon was speaking with JoBlo during the course of his press tour, and revealed that he is actually open to playing a superhero. It just has to be under the right circumstances. Those circumstances just so happen to include his Bff Ben Affleck. Who just happens to be directing a new standalone Batman movie that he will star in and co-write. Here is what he had to say.

Damon Expects Bourne Series To Go The James Bond Route In Future, Talks Recasting Role

11 July 2016 8:38 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I'll never forget seeing the first trailer for The Bourne Identity. It was 2001 and, up until that point, Damon had acquitted himself quite nicely as a dramatic actor-writer in high-minded productions like Good Will HuntingSaving Private RyanThe Talented Mr. Ripley, and The Legend Of Bagger Vance. He and pal Ben Affleck crossed over into the A-list at the same time, thanks to their work as writers/actors in 1996's Good Will Hunting, but they seemingly split after that. Damon went serious, and Affleck went big. While Damon worked on the kinds of films mentioned above, Affleck ran around making bombastic blockbusters like Armageddon, Reindeer Games, and Pearl Harbor.

So the idea, as a follower of films, was that- of the two of them- Damon was more of the thoughtful artiste, while Affleck was more the celebrity movie star. 

That's what made the debut trailer for The Bourne Identity so attention-grabbing. »

They ran headlong into a bar full of bloodsuckers and bandits, facing off with the vampire goddess Santánico. The Geckos joined her cause, and they settled an old score. It won them a place in the culebra world. Now that world is about to explode, and new enemies are gathering - dark forces, »

Top 5 Matt Damon Roles

14 June 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

We’ve been fans of Matt Damon since the beginning, when he was a fresh-faced kid from Boston with a killer instinct for acting. Now he’s won an Oscar, and he's been nominated three more times since.

Damon started off by doing dramatic roles that put him on the map: Good Will Hunting, Saving Private Ryan… movies of that ilk. He quickly established himself as one of the most appealing leading men in Hollywood, and became involved in such iconic projects as Ocean’s Eleven and The Bourne Identity.

There are few other actors in the business that can be relied upon to turn out crowd-pleaser after crowd-pleaser like Matt Damon. It looks like his good-luck streak will continue this month with Jason Bourne, the fifth Bourne film in the series and Damon’s fourth time portraying the amnesiac special agent.

We’ve rounded up five of our favourite Matt Damon roles in time for Jason Bourne, and we think we’ve got all the essentials covered. Check out the list below and catch Jason Bourne in Cineplex theatres July 29th.

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon's bromance is alive and well. On Saturday night, the lifelong pals attended the Guys Choice Awards in La, where they received the Guys of the Decade award. Ben - who recently returned from London - was clearly in a good mood as he joked on stage, saying, "I think it goes without saying that this is an award Matt and I have been dreaming about since we were little boys. I did Gigli and Matt did that Liberace movie, and all of a sudden it all seemed out of reach. Then I did [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice] and all of a sudden it was back in reach again.
