‘Bourne’ Back At #1; ‘Ice Age’ Skates To $300M+ Offshore; ‘Pets’ Prances Past $700M Ww – Intl Box Office

28 August 2016 10:36 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Refresh for latest… Universal's Jason Bourne rode back to the top of the international box office this weekend, coming off of a $50M start in China which broke records for the franchise there. In total, Bourne revved up a $56.8M weekend in 62 markets to take the offshore total to $198.5M.

'Don't Breathe' Scares Off Competition With $26M Opening Weekend

28 August 2016 9:37 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Led by a fantastic opening for Screen Gems' new thriller Don't Breathe, this weekend over performed expectations with the top twelve delivering a 43.5% improvement over the same weekend last year, just barely coming up shy of a combined $100 million. Along with the stellar opening for Don't Breathe, Mechanic: Resurrection had a solid opening for Lionsgate & Co., the moderate release of Southside with You performed well, the expansion of Hell or High Water continues to impress and Bad Moms has another great hold as the R-rated comedy approaches $100 million domestically. At the top, Don't Breathe delivered an estimated $26.1 million besting Mojo's projections, which were nearly double the studio's conservative expectations, by $5.6 million. The film, which was made for just under $10 million, delivered 2.6 times its budget domestically and received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. The opening compares favorably to last year's The Visit, which opened with $25.4 million and a »

‘Warcraft’ Is the Most Successful Video-Game Adaptation of All Time — but It’s Still Losing Money

11 August 2016 4:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s been an especially disappointing summer moviegoing season, with any number of sequels, reboots and adaptations — “Finding Dory,” “Ghostbusters,” “Jason Bourne” — but few movies that have proven successful with both critics and audiences. “Warcraft” is far from an exception to that rule, garnering negative reviews and, according to the folks at IGN, losing money despite grossing more than $430 million worldwide.

Their number-crunching puts the final deficit at $15 million, which takes into account lucrative deals for both merchandising and digital distribution in China, where Duncan Jones’ adaptation of the massively popular video-game franchise took in most of its money ($220 million; it made just $45 million domestically).

'Suicide Squad' Shoots Down August Record with $135 Million Opening

7 August 2016 9:06 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

For the third time this year a superhero movie has broken an opening weekend record and with it a continuing trend that finds the previous week's box office champion suffering a hefty second weekend drop. This time around it's Warner Bros' Suicide Squad decimating the previous August opening weekend record by more than $40 million while Universal's Jason Bourne experiences a 62% drop in its sophomore session. That said, with the top twelve totaling a massive $223.9 million, this weekend's top twelve was up a whopping 87% compared to the same weekend last year. In fact, this is the first time this calendar weekend has ever grossed over $190 million, let alone cracked the $200 million mark. Finishing in first place with an estimated $135.1 million, Warner Bros. and DC Comics' Suicide Squad now holds the largest August opening weekend, topping Guardians of the Galaxy's $94.3 million from 2014. The film also had the largest August opening day with $65.2 million, »

‘Jason Bourne’ Has Series’ Best Debut at International Box Office

31 July 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jason Bourne” dominated the foreign box office, opening to $50.1 million, the biggest overseas debut in the history of the action franchise.

The film marks the return of Matt Damon to the series that propelled him to the top of the Hollywood A-list. The actor had set out the most recent installment, 2012’s “The Bourne Legacy,” and was hesitant to reprise the role. Universal backed the $120 million sequel and wrote Damon’s check, which presumably had a lot of zeroes.

It was money well spent. Audiences were clearly eager to see Damon putting the hurt on his adversaries. The film opened in first place in 27 of the 46 markets in which it played. Among notable markets, the film racked up $11.2 million in South Korea, opened to $10.2 million in the United Kingdom and Ireland, kicked off to $5.7 million in Australia, and launched to $2.1 million in Taiwan. Next weekend, “Jason Bourne” opens in Argentina, »

'Jason Bourne' Tops Weekend with $60M; 'Star Trek Beyond' Suffers Big Second Weekend Drop

31 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

With the second largest opening for a film in the Bourne franchise, Jason Bourne topped the weekend box office as audiences came out in support of Matt Damon's return to the title role nine years after The Bourne Ultimatum. Stx's ensemble comedy Bad Moms delivered a third place finish and the fifth largest R-rated opening of the year while Lionsgate's Nerve fell a bit below expectations, finishing in eighth place for the weekend, which was down a fraction from last weekend, but up nearly 27% compared to last year. With an estimated $60 million, Jason Bourne delivered the second largest domestic opening in the Bourne franchise behind only The Bourne Ultimatum, which opened with $69.2 million back in 2007. Additionally, this debut is almost $22 million more than what The Bourne Legacy brought in back in 2012 when Universal attempted to keep the franchise alive with Jeremy Renner stepping in as the lead character.

‘Jason Bourne’ Scores $60 Million, ‘Bad Moms’ Makes $23.4 Million

31 July 2016 7:36 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Both “Jason Bourne” and “Bad Moms” had strong opening weekends. Universal’s Bourne sequel, starring Matt Damon, won the weekend with $60 million from 4,026 screens. While right on par with estimates TheWrap reported early last week, it came in significantly higher than what the studio and other prognosticators were initially expecting.

Box Office: ‘Jason Bourne’ Scores With $60 Million Debut, ‘Bad Moms’ Hits Big

31 July 2016 7:36 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Audiences turned out in force to see Matt Damon in “Jason Bourne,” pushing the spy sequel to a sterling $60 million debut.

The film marked the actor’s return to the action franchise after a nine-year hiatus, during which he repeatedly hinted that he might be done with his most popular role. He and director Paul Greengrass argued that 2007’s “The Bourne Ultimatum” had brought the character full circle by filling in him on the shadowy bureaucratic maneuvers that transformed him into a killing machine. What was left?

Be it creative spark or big paydays, the pair were somehow lured back to the series. That’s good news for Universal, which ran the risk of losing a Tiffany franchise without Damon’s involvement. In the interim, the studio had made an ill-conceived attempt at cinematic universe building with “The Bourne Legacy,” introducing Jeremy Renner as another amnesic ass-kicker dubbed Aaron Cross. »

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

28 July 2016 8:42 AM, PDT | 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, »

Box Office: ‘Jason Bourne’ Targets $50 Million Debut, ‘Bad Moms’ Looks Like Sleeper Hit

26 July 2016 2:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The posters state authoritatively, “you know his name.” And then there’s Matt Damon, half of his all-American visage cloaked in shadow, back in the role that solidified his place on Hollywood’s A-list.

Still, it’s been nearly a decade since Jason Bourne unpacked Treadstone and slowly pieced together the parts of a life story that a nasty case of amnesia wiped away. The promotional campaign aside, audiences could be forgiven if it takes them a minute to recall the Bourne moniker. Though Damon has left the butt-kicking to others, the influence of the Bourne movies and their handheld intensity remains omnipresent, helping to shape the action sequences in everything from the latest James Bond films to “Captain America: The Winter Solider.” But will audiences, increasingly fixated on comic book movies, still have a place in their hearts for one of cinema’s most durable super spies?

Film Review: ‘Jason Bourne’

26 July 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Call it a rebirth: Matt Damon is back as Jason Bourne in the franchise’s tough, “this time it’s personal” fifth installment, titled, simply enough, “Jason Bourne.” To the extent that the entire Bourne series hinges on the notion of an amnesiac action hero — one who remembers how to kill with his bare hands but draws blanks on key details about his past — this explosive reunion between Damon and director Paul Greengrass further reveals key secrets about Bourne’s origins, bringing its lethal protagonist as close as he’s ever likely to get to total recall.

Mostly, the project marks a return to what worked about the franchise — namely, Damon — suggesting the relief of watching Sean Connery step back into Bond’s shoes after producers tried to replace him with a suave male model in “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.” Meanwhile, audiences are expected to forget both “The Bourne Legacy, »

‘Jason Bourne’ Features Best Chase of Series, Says Producer

13 April 2016 6:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The chase sequence is a Jason Bourne staple.

Audiences who flock to the spy thrillers are accustomed to seeing the amnesiac former black ops agent scaling walls and dodging traffic while pursued by shadowy government agents across cities, mountains and even, spectacularly, along the roof of a bazaar. But that’s just a warm up.

Producer Frank Marshall promised a CinemaCon crowd Wednesday that the next installment, entitled “Jason Bourne,” will feature the greatest getaway of all.

Matt Damon’s title character travels the globe but ends up right in the front yard of this week’s movie exhibitors confab — the Las Vegas Strip — for the big pursuit. A small snippet showed cars roaring past showgirls and right into a casino’s front door. “We are staging what I think is the best Bourne chase ever,” said Marshall, “so we have that to look forward to.”

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.
