Two of the biggest bits of action movie franchise news dropped over the past week—first, that Ben Affleck would indeed be the new Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel; second, that Matt Damon is in talks to return for a fifth film in the Bourne franchise, after the Jeremy Renner-starring The Bourne Legacy didn’t exactly set the box...

Matt Damon Bourne
Universal has made no secret that they want a fifth Bourne movie, even after the not so stellar returns from The Bourne Legacy. The key has always been getting Matt Damon to return, and Damon's said the only way he'd come back is if Paul Greengrass does as well. Well, that may just happen.

Anything Stan Lee touches, for the most part, at this point will be turned into either a television series or a movie. So when we first found out the news that his latest comic Annihilator is going to receive the big screen treatment, nobody was shocked.

Because making a film that isn’t a sequel or is based upon an original idea is just too gosh darned hard, Universal Pictures chairman Adam Fogelson has announced that the studio will be churning out ever more Bourne sequels, as well as sequels to the films Identity Thief and Snow White and the Huntsman, and there’s nothing we can...

Sadly, the summer is almost over. Most kids have gone back to school and the weather is slowly cooling down for the fall season.  Many believe that this summer's movie season was one of the weakest in the past couple of years, but we think otherwise. It was chocked full of fascinating independent movies and stupidly fun popcorn flicks that hit our sweet spot. So let's reflect on some of the...

Box Office Roundup: Old White Guys Stay on Top

The Expendables 2
You wouldn't know it from the weather, or practically anything else, but summer is over. At least for movies, where we're getting second and third stringers in the theater. And that's why only one film cracked ten million this weekend, and that's why The Expendables 2 stays on top. It's a weak week.

The Expendables 2
With the last month of cinema dominated by the likes of Batman, Colin Ferrell, and Jeremy Renner, that may be enough to explain why The Expendables 2 opened a little soft. Here's where I should really make a Viagra joke. Okay, the film opened hard for four hours, but then had to call a doctor? That good?

Though The Bourne Legacy couldn't top the last two Bourne sequels, it did manage to win the weekend, and is the first new film to hit number one since The Dark Knight Rises opened. More than anything, it did the right thing by moving back a week, and if its big competition was...

The Bourne Legacy: Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz get chased in Manila
Part of me still can't believe they didn't throw a pile of money at Matt Damon to do a scene in The Bourne Legacy. Oh well. The ads keep telling us there was never just one. Duh. The question is if audiences will return if/when they know it doesn't feature the character in the title.

The Bourne Legacy: Movie Review

The Bourne Legacy: Jeremy Renner is Aaron Cross (Top)
To say that The Bourne Legacy is loosely based on Eric Van Lustbander's novel or even set in the same universe that Robert Ludlum created is a giant overstatement. Screenwriters (and director) Tony and Dan Gilroy have taken Ludlum's Bourne series and expanded into something wholly new. That's what they set out to do, and...

The Bourne Legacy hits theaters August 10, and we're curious to see how it will play. Not only because it's a sequel that talks a lot about Jason Bourne without actually featuring Matt Damon, but also because director Tony Gilroy is taking up the helm from Paul Greengrass, whose action sensibilities meant "lots of shakey cam." From this clip we have a better idea...

Per his contract that apparently states he must have a role in every ongoing action franchise in existence (look for him to appear next as James Bond’s little brother Johnny Bond in A Quirkdom of Siblings), Jeremy Renner is the new face of the Bourne franchise.  After having already taken remarkably bland supporting roles in Thor, The Avengers,...

Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises
The summer season is a week away at this point, so it's time to start making predictions about the biggest movies of the summer. These predictions are always going to be a just little off, but that's the fun of making wildly inaccurate guesses months before we've even seen a film - sometimes you're right. So here are the top ten films that are going to be trying to make more than $200 Million...
