    Matt Damon Says Playing Jason Bourne Again Is Unlikely, But He Hasn't Seen 'The Bourne Legacy' Yet

    "You see there are several different programmes in the movie with different skill sets. All possibilities are open. My dream is that in the next one we see Matt [Damon] and Jeremy [Renner] team up," producer Frank Marshall said prior to the release of "The Bourne Legacy." But he's unlikely to see that scenario happen now. While Damon had kept his options somewhat open when asked about returning for a possible 'Bourne 5' -- "If we can make one where we go into it feeling it can be even better than those, and it ends up being in that same ballpark, then we should do it. But If we can't, then we really should leave it alone," he said this summer -- it looks like he's firmly closing the door.

    Review: 'Gayby' Is A Slightly Amusing Little Comedy About...You Guessed It, Babymaking With Your Best Gay

    You have one chance to figure out what “Gayby” is about. If you said “gay baby,” ding ding ding, you got it! Or maybe it should be “baby with a gay,” but at any rate, “Gayby” treads the familiar narrative path of the contentious relationship between the single woman and her biological clock. Much like Madonna and Rupert Everett in “The Next Best Thing,” college buds Jenn and Matt (Jennifer Harris and Matthew Wilkas, real life college buds -- check out their snapshots in the title sequence) decide to make a go of this whole babymaking business (yes, the old fashioned way).

    Review: Celebrity, Notoriety & Living In Public As 'Frankie Go Boom'

    'Frankie Go Boom' opens with a home video from a long-ago washed-out suburban childhood, as Bruce tricks his brother Frankie into a pitfall prank that's both caught on tape and a trap for the two of them; flashing forward to adulthood -- or something like it -- Frankie (Charlie Hunnam) has exiled himself from everything, holing up in Death Valley to write. And Bruce (Chris O'Dowd, with a solidly American accent) is just getting out of rehab, convinced that the "films" he makes -- really, just footage -- of disasters like the one that befell Frankie's wedding three years ago, mean he's a director, what with their huge online "hit" numbers…
