Everything We Know About the New 'Jason Bourne'

10 February 2016 6:04 AM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango 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 spin-off The Bourne Legacy). Fortunately, we have some answers, care of Matt Damon via his recent interview with Entertainment Weekly. Here's all we know about the upcoming sequel: Why is Bourne back now?...

Everything We Know About the New 'Jason Bourne'

"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 Talks "Dark And Tortured" 'Jason Bourne,' Says Film Touches On Financial Collapse, Cyber Warfare & Civil Liberties

9 February 2016 6:23 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After a trilogy of movies bearing titles such as "The Bourne Identity," "The Bourne Supremacy," and "The Bourne Ultimatum," the fourth film in the saga of Jason Bourne (which presumably circumvents the side-quel "The Bourne Legacy") is keeping things simple with its name: "Jason Bourne." And that choice makes perfect sense when you hear Matt Damon's explanation of where this sequel fits into the puzzle of deciphering his lead character. "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, it feels like the conclusion of my identity journey. It goes deeper than 'Ultimatum,' basically," he told EW.

Ranking the Super Bowl 50 Movie Trailers

8 February 2016 8:50 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Most people thank (or blame) Ridley Scott's 1984 Macintosh ad for inventing the spectacle of the Super Bowl commercial, but the Independence Day spot that 20th Century Fox unleashed during the big game in 1996 was an equally significant milestone. Ever since 100 million Americans gawked at their televisions in awe as a massive alien spaceship blew up the White House, the football championship has become the ultimate launching pad for the next wave of spring and summer blockbusters. These days, it almost feels like there’s an entire Comic-Con worth of »

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, »

Watch: Matt Damon Is The Perfect Weapon In Super Bowl Spot For ‘Jason Bourne’

7 February 2016 4:30 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Set place in 2004, it’s been twelve years since we’ve seen Matt Damon’s now iconic super spy Jason Bourne in movie years. Last we left him off in “The Bourne Ultimatum,” the super agent had discovered the story of his true identity, was presumed dead, but was actually swimming to safety in the East River. Meanwhile, at the end of "The Bourne Legacy," supervisor Pamela Landy (Joan Allen) is thrown under the bus by the CIA during Federal investigations when the Blackbriar and Treadstone operations are exposed. But in the newly titled “Jason Bourne,” the fourth installment of the Jason Bourne series and the fifth in the overall series, the super resourceful agent has finally resurfaced. Why? Gleaning from the trailer, Nsa surveillance technology has finally tracked down his whereabouts. But more importantly, a new plot has come to light that has caught’s Bourne attention and made »

Watch: ‘Jason Bourne’ First Trailer Drops During Super Bowl

7 February 2016 4:28 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The first trailer for Matt Damon’s “Jason Bourne” debuted during Super Bowl 50, giving fans a look at the upcoming thriller.

The sequel sees Damon and director Paul Greengrass (who helmed “The Bourne Supremacy” and “The Bourne Ultimatum”) re-teaming to bring the famous spy out of retirement. It’s been nine years since Bourne appeared on the big screen — the upcoming installment marks the fifth film in the franchise.

“I know who I am,” says Damon in the clip. “I remember everything.”

The series started in 2002, with “The Bourne Identity.” The last movie in the series came in 2012 with “The Bourne Legacy.” However, neither Bourne nor Damon appeared in that film. Jeremy Renner starred as Black ops agent Aaron Cross.

Julia Stiles is set to return to the series, reprising her role as Nicky Parsons. “Ex Machina” and “The Danish Girl” actress Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones and Vincent Cassel »

Behind the Scenes: Bradley Rubenstein

3 February 2016 7:12 AM, PST | | See recent CultureCatch news »

This is the fourth of a series of interviews that focus on Local 829's Scenic Artists’ "behind the scenes" talent who sculpt and paint in a variety of ways the sets we see on television, in movies and documentaries, on theater stages, and in the backgrounds of television and internet commercials.

I first met Bradley Rubenstein very early on in my days in the scenic arts, and it was immediately apparent that he was, and still is, respectfully dedicated to his work as a fine artist. I’ve followed his career closely since then, watching his art delving deeper and deeper into the human condition as he distorts and mutates his subjects. Recently, Rubenstein had one of his warped and mangled human forms in an exhibition titled Head that I curated for the Hampden Gallery at Umass Amherst.

The interview below begins just days before the installation of Head. The »

When to Expect a Bourne 5 Trailer

29 January 2016 9:55 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The next Bourne film is a long time in the making. After the disappointment that was 2012's The Bourne Legacy, the studios knew they'd have to bring things back to Jason Bourne himself if they wanted to continue the franchise. So they did just that.

They locked down Bourn Supremacy and Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass, as well as the series star Matt Damon. In addition, a good portion of the film is already in the can, as principal photography began last September. With its release date of July fast-approaching, the only thing fans are wondering is: where is the first trailer?

Sure, there's still half a year until the movie is set to hit theaters, but that's never stopped the hungry fans from asking. Luckily, author Eric Van Lustbader--who continues the legacy of Robert Ludlum with his own Bourne books--has our backs, and took to Facebook to tell us »
