This week Amazon is offering The Bourne Trilogy -- The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum -- on Blu-ray for a deeply discounted price of $25.00, just click here to pick up your own copy. I'm sure Universal is prepping some sort of Bourne franchise collection to include the recently released Jeremy Renner-led The Bourne Legacy, but if you ask me that's hardly a title worth owning and this collection, which I actually own, doesn't lose any value by not having it. Again, this is Amazon's Deal of the Week and you can buy your own copy by clicking here. »

With CBS airing Under the Dome this summer, and Kimberly Peirce.s Carrie remake coming in October, it will already be a good year for Stephen King fans. And that.s not even taking into account all of the other adaptations that have been announced over the last few weeks. One of the longer-gestating projects is Peter Askin.s take on King.s A Good Marriage, news on which was strangely absent after Joan Allen (The Bourne Legacy) signed on to the cast last year. That is until last week, when Anthony Lapaglia (Without a Trace) was added as her devious husband. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Avatar.s Stephen Lang has joined the indie film, adding one more role to his already overloaded slate. The Terra Nova star was last seen in David A. Armstrong.s ensemble crime thriller Pawn, and will be seen all over the place »

There's no such thing as impossible for international superstar Tom Cruise. It's been two years since we saw Cruise performing his own hair-raising stunts in "Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol," but it seems like just yesterday. Luckily, fans of agent Ethan Hunt won't have to wait much longer to catch up with his latest globe-trotting adventures. Cruise is in the middle of making a deal with Paramount to take on his fifth "Mission: Impossible," although the roles of writer and director are still up in the air. When "Ghost Protocol" came out, folks were wondering if co-star Jeremy Renner would take the reins from Cruise. It will be interesting to see if Renner will return for his role as fellow Imf agent William Brandt. The "Avengers" actor has had a few missteps in the past few years with "The Bourne Legacy" and the long-stalled "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" fantasy/action flick. »

Jeremy Renner was considered a 'weirdo' in California because he didn't go surfing. The 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters' star was born and raised in the sun-drenched Us State famous for having beautiful beaches and clean waves to ride. However, Renner never had the urge to grab a board and dive in the sea or partake in some of the extra-curricular activities associated with the pastime which meant he was considered an outcast. The 42-year-old actor revealed: 'I grew up in California and Hawaii but I don't surf or smoke weed, so everybody considered me a weirdo; which I probably am!' Renner has achieved huge success in his career in recent years with starring roles in 'The Bourne Legacy', 'The »

Disney returns to Oz with a prequel this time in Oz the Great and Powerful.
Based on author Frank L. Baum’s classic children’s stories, the fantasy movie imagines how the illusionist Oz might have made it to the magical land.

He’s more con artist than magician, and when his dubious ethics push him into a hot air balloon to avoid a beating, Oz gets whisked away from dusty Kansas to a magical land.
In Oz, Diggs discovers that there’s a prophecy that »
This year's White House Correspondents' Dinner will be hosted by talk show funny man Conan O'Brien. As usual, the stars will be out in full force, with celebrities living the dinner tables of various news outlets.
Recently, veteran newsman Tom Brokaw thinks that the some celebrities who are invited to the dinners make a mockery of the event. The final straw for him was Lindsay Lohan attending the 2012 dinner. "She became a big star at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Give me a break," Brokaw says.
No Lohan scheduled for this year, but the names of those appearing cover the spectrum of television and film. The cast of "Modern Family," along with two stars from the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past" are among the highlights.

Ever since “24″ went off the air, I’ve found myself with a gaping Jack Bauer shaped hole in my life. I’ve tried to fill that void with a variety of different kick ass heroes and time and again I’ve been disappointed. It has led me to the question, where have all the action hero tough guys of yesteryear went?
I’m not here to review that film, but suffice to say it was absolutely diabolical and I was wracking my brain to think why? The CGI looked cheap, but I’ve seen cheaper. The villain was pants, but he was still pants when Paul Walker ass kicked him ten years ago and every scene in »
