    Review: Gilroy's 'The Bourne Legacy' Delivers, Thanks to Renner

    I was looking forward to "The Bourne Legacy" more than most studio sequels that have lost their signature director and star. That's because Universal turned to writer-director Tony Gilroy to reinvent the "Bourne" franchise without Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon, who became a movie star playing the t...

    Wigtacular: First Set Photo Of Matt Damon & Michael Douglas In Steven Soderbergh's 'Behind The Candelabra'

    In a crudely poetic way, it's sort of fitting that ever curious, genre hopping Steven Soderbergh's final year behind the camera before he goes on hiatus would find him working on a male stripper pic ("Magic Mike"), a psychological thriller ("The Bitter Pill") and now, a biopic on one the most...flam...

    'Bourne Legacy' Featurette Helps Legitimize Franchise Continuation without Damon; Gilroy Talks

    A featurette has landed to essentially help explain how "The Bourne Legacy" can exist sans Matt Damon. In the nearly 3-minute video (below) writer-director Tony Gilroy explains that with "Legacy," they "wanted to create a larger conspiracy.

    Matt Damon Open To 'Bourne 5,' But If 'Legacy' Is A Hit, He Expects The Franchise To Move On Without Him

    Poor Matt Damon's got to be somewhat sick of answering questions about the Jason Bourne series, a franchise he's ostensibly not in any more. Or at least, not for now. In case you're living under a rock, Damon and Paul Greengrass walked away from a "Bourne 4" in late 2009 for several reasons, but one...

    Comic-Con Flips Over 'Elysium' Footage; Damon, Foster, Copley and Blomkamp Talk (EXCLUSIVE VIDEOS)

    Ever since indie "District 9" put South African writer-director Neill Blomkamp on the map as an original filmmaker with an extraordinary command over VFX, film fans have eagerly awaited his next.

    Margaret—DVD review

    I’m a latecomer to Kenneth Lonergan’s 'Margaret', having missed its brief appearance in theaters last year (after a five-to-six year delay) but it’s not too late for me to sing its praises. It has its flaws, but I defy you to find a more intelligent or impassioned American film this year.

    First Image Of A Bald, Gun-Wielding Matt Damon In Neill Blomkamp's 'Elysium'

    While Neill Blomkamp and his team have done a fantastic job of keeping pretty much everything about his upcoming sci-fi flick "Elysium" under wraps, the time for show and tell is soon arriving. Sony recently confirmed the film will be part of their one and a half hour presentation at Comic...

    'Bourne Legacy' Producer Frank Marshall Says His Dream Is To Have Jeremy Renner & Matt Damon Star In The Next Film

    How do you continue the Jason Bourne franchise without Jason Bourne? If you're Tony Gilroy, the writer/director behind "The Bourne Legacy" as well as the screenwriter who has been deeply involved in the Matt Damon-starring trilogy of films, you throw out any and all expectations. ...
