Movie Review: American Assassin

16 September 2017 6:09 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hollywood has fallen in love with numerous spy superstars throughout its history. James Bond, Jason Bourne, and even Ethan Hunt are all memorable spy heroes with long-running franchises. There is something exciting about being a part of the spy world. Whether it’s the gathering of intel, the thrilling car chases, attractive romantic interests, or the prevention of some terrorist threat, the spy genre is a fruitful one. And Hollywood sure has picked from that tree over the decades.

The latest attempt of turning out a spy franchise comes in the adaptation of the Mitch Rapp book series. The popular book series started in 1999 and features twelve books, and its first film adaptation, American Assassin, is the eleventh book in the series. The film was originally supposed to star an older Mitch Rapp (Gerard Butler, Colin Farrell, and Matthew Fox were all considered for the role at one point), but »

BFI to award Bourne director Paul Greengrass with Fellowship award

29 August 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Director Paul Greengrass is to be awarded with the BFI Fellowship later this year.

Greengrass, who brought his distinctive style to mainstream with The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, will receive the BFI Fellowship at this year’s 61st BFI London Film Festival.

The BAFTA winning director will be presented with the honour at the festival’s opening ceremony on October 14.

The BFI Fellowship is awarded in recognition of a person’s outstanding contribution to film and television.

Josh Berger, chair of the BFI, said Greengrass was “a director, writer and producer whose skill for storytelling is as powerful and courageous as the stories and figures he brings to life in the cinema and on the small screen.”

“As a filmmaker, Paul has been a true pioneer, bringing his instinct and experience from making hard-hitting programs into the world of cinema,” said Berger in a statement. “His distinct ability »

Box Office Democracy: The Hitman’s Bodyguard

29 August 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

I have to imagine production of The Hitman’s Bodyguard started with director Patrick Hughes gathering the whole cast together and giving them some kind of speech along the lines of “Look, we all know this script is a piece of garbage but if we pull together we can elevate it way past tolerable” and then there was some big cheer and they ran out to the set like a sports movie.  It’s a laughable script that doesn’t hold together under the smallest bit of scrutiny, but the cast absolutely crushes it.  It’s the best bad movie I’ve seen all year and I don’t mean that as faint praise.  The world is full of people doing average work with average material but seeing fantastic work come from a wretched foundation is something special.  This is a diamond found in a coal mine.

Why an underpass in Berlin is Hollywood’s biggest breakout star

27 August 2017 6:59 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From the Bourne Supremacy to Atomic Blonde, the Messedamm subway has starred in six blockbusters over the past 13 years

The second Bourne film, the fourth Hunger Games movie, an indie flick about a teen assassin and one of the highest-grossing instalments in the Marvel cinematic universe. If that were the IMDb page of an actor, you would think they were on their way to the big time. But the CV in question belongs not to a person, but a tunnel in Berlin.

Since doubling as the exterior of a Moscow airport in 2004’s The Bourne Supremacy, the distinctive orange-tiled walls and pillars of the Messedamm underpass have been seen in Joe Wright’s Hanna in 2011, 2015’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, last year’s Captain America: Civil War and Charlize Theron spy thriller Atomic Blonde, released earlier this month.

Top Ten Movie Franchises Based on Books

16 August 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

For as long as there have been movies, there have been movies based on books. This is a look at the best movie franchises that are either based on a book or several books.

It’s one thing to have a movie that is based on a book. It happens all the time. It’s more rare to have an entire franchise of films based on a book or set of books. Over the last two decades, it seems like we have been seeing more and more franchises emerge that are based on books. This seems to be happening for a few reasons. First, Hollywood is more than ever looking for established properties on which to base films. Book, have been and always will be one of the best established properties for a movie to be based upon. Second, if the books have a big following, chances are that the »

John Ostrander: The Bourne Formula

13 August 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

Spoiler note: Various plot elements of the Bourne movies may be revealed below. The movies have been out for a while so I’m assuming those who want to see them have seen them. Nevertheless, the spoiler flag is flying just in case.

There are a number of movies that, when I come across them on the tube, I’ll stop and watch them. I tell myself that it will be just until a certain scene or bit of dialogue but the fact is I usually wind up watching them through to the final credits. When this happens late at night, I can wind up staying awake for far too long and suffer for it the next day.

The Bourne series of movies fall into this category. They include The Bourne Identity/Supremacy/Ultimatum and Jason Bourne but not The Bourne Legacy which, despite its name, has no Jason Bourne »

A History Of Violence: It’s hard not to hold shakycam against the otherwise terrific Bourne Supremacy

29 June 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

With A History Of Violence, Tom Breihan picks the most important action movie of every year, starting with the genre’s birth and moving right up to whatever Vin Diesel’s doing this very minute.

The Bourne Supremacy (2004)

Paul Greengrass didn’t invent shakycam. The technique of frantic handheld camerawork and chaotic editing had been around for decades—first as an experimental film technique, then as a sort of action-movie shortcut—before Greengrass directed The Bourne Supremacy in 2004. In ’60s movies like The Battle Of Algiers, it was there for veracity, to lend documentary-film immediacy to the action onscreen. In ’90s action movies like The Rock, it was there to make a big, loud, noisy movie even bigger and louder and noisier. In The Bourne Supremacy, Greengrass somehow did both. He used choppy filmmaking to mimic the immediate discombobulating effects of violence, to show how real-life fights and »

The 50 Greatest Car Chases in Film: Part 2

19 April 2017 8:17 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Fast and Furious movies aren't the only ones with great car chases. Join us as we take a look at the 50 best car chase scenes in film. This week, we're counting down from #25 to #1!

Like peanut butter and jelly, car chases and movies are two things that just go together perfectly. A chase is inherently interesting to watch - someone is trying their best to get away by any means possible, while the other party is trying to stop them from doing so. The danger involved, the threat of violence, and even the thrill of the hunt are all part of why we often can’t look away. A car chase is the next level of chase. They are fast - an embodiment of man and machine together. They are also dangerous - the stakes are incredibly high, and not just for the people involved in the chase.

Paul Greengrass and Brian Helgeland teaming up for Ness

2 April 2017 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Legendary lawman Elliot Ness is set for a return to the big screen, with Deadline reporting that Paramount Pictures has set Paul Greengrass (Jason Bourne) to direct Ness, an adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Marc Andreyko’s graphic novel Torso.

The project has been scripted by Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential), who previously teamed with Greengrass for The Bourne Supremacy, and follows Ness years after he and his team of Prohibition agents The Untouchables brought down mobster Al Capone. The graphic novel details Ness’ investigation into the serial killer dubbed the ‘Torso Murderer’, and his efforts to bring him to justice.

There have been several previous attempts to bring Torso to the big screen, with directors David Fincher and David Lowery both attached at different points. This latest project is being eyed as a possible franchise, and is slated to begin production in the fall. »

Newswire: Paul Greengrass to direct Eliot Ness biopic based on a graphic novel

27 March 2017 6:47 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Though The Untouchables has seemed like the definitive Eliot Ness movie for a few decades, Paul Greengrass is stepping up to direct a new Eliot Ness movie for a new generation. Titled Ness, the movie will be based on Brian Michael Bendis and Marc Andreyko’s graphic novel Torso, which chronicled Ness’ attempt to capture a torso-chopping serial killer in Cleveland in the years after bringing down Al Capone. The screenplay is being written by La Confidential’s Brian Helgeland, who also worked on Greengrass’ The Bourne Supremacy.

This comes from Deadline, which says that the studio (Paramount Pictures) is hoping to turn this into a franchise. If that’s the case, subsequent movies will probably have to be prequels, since the most famous thing Eliot Ness ever did wasn’t catching this torso killer. There’s also no casting information yet, but Matt Damon is definitely waiting by his »

Eisenhower. Directed by Jonathan Teplitzky, the film follows Winston Churchill in the 48 hours leading up to D-Day; take a look below…

With the entire War effort ultimately hinging on this decision, the stakes have never been higher. As the Wartime leader clashes with his generals, tension builds with the Americans, and Churchill must wrestle his inner-demons in order to navigate the Allies to victory.
