Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!

Written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar

Spain, 1989

No matter if his protagonists are deranged or distraught, happy or sad, or if his stories are light or dark, comedic or tragic, the films of Pedro Almodóvar are usually at the very least enjoyable. Even at their most disturbing, there is something inescapably jubilant about his lavish use of color, his vibrant characters, and his unceasing passion for life and filmmaking. And when he aims to make something purely amusing, the results can be astonishing. It is for all of these reasons that Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!, surprisingly the first Almodóvar film released by the Criterion Collection, is such a treat.

In this 1989 feature, made just after Almodóvar’s award-winning breakthrough Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Victoria Abril stars as junkie porn star turned respectable leading lady Marina Osorio, the object »

Antonio Banderas and Victoria Abril get to know each other in Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!

The rambunctious 1990 dark comedy Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! is Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar’s (Broken Embraces) colorful and controversial tribute to the pleasures and perils of Stockholm syndrome.

The film stars Antonio Banderas (Haywire) as an unbalanced but alluring former mental patient and Victoria Abril (Walking Vengeance) as the B-movie and porn star he takes prisoner in the hopes of convincing her to marry him.

A highly unconventional romance that came on the spike heels of Almodóvar’s international sensation Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, this is a splashy, sexy central work in the career of one of the international cinema’s most beloved and provocative auteurs, radiantly shot by the director’s great cinematographer José Luis Alcaine »

Penelope Cruz, Julio Medem Team on ‘Ma ma’

21 January 2014 3:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris – Penelope Cruz will topline and co-produce “Ma ma,” the next film by one of Spain’s most prominent auteurs, L.A.-based Spanish director Julio Medem (“Sex and Lucia,” “Room in Rome”).

An intimate woman’s drama, laced by moments of comedy, “Ma ma” turns on Magda, a woman who reacts valiantly to tragedy, digging deep into her interior. “She and those in her intimate circle will live unsuspected scenes of humor and of delicate happiness,” a press release announced Tuesday.

Though Medem is now based out of Los Angeles, “Ma ma” will shoot entirely in Spain in Spanish this spring. It will co-star Luis Tosar (“Miami Vice”) and Asier Exteandia (“Broken Embraces”). Medem will co-produce. Madrid-based Morena Films, one of Spain’s still active significant production houses that has recently opened L.A. offices, will associate produce. Alvaro Longoria, producer of Medem’s “Room in Rome,” will produce out of Spain. »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: The Counselor

8 January 2014 7:07 AM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Feb. 11, 2014

Price: DVD $29.98, Blu-ray $39.99

Studio: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment

Director Ridley Scott’s (Prometheus) The Counselor became known as the movie in which Cameron Diaz has sex with a car.

Cameron Diaz (Bad Teacher) is part of an ensemble cast. She plays Malkina, the manipulative girlfriend of drug kingpin Reiner (Javier Bardem, Skyfall). Reiner is behind a big new deal that has attracted the involvement of his lawyer (Michael Fassbender, Shame), the titular Counselor.

Meanwhile, the Counselor sees the potential new big paycheck he’s expecting as the opportunity to step things up with his girlfriend (Penelope Cruz, Broken Embraces). But when things go bad, the Counselor finds himself at risk of losing everything.

Despite the stellar cast, which also includes Brad Pitt (World War Z), and Ridley Scott behind the camera, The Counselor proved a letdown with critics, moviegoers and at the box office. »
