How Many Lines Does Matt Damon Have in Jason Bourne?

In 1991, Arnold Schwarzenegger was paid $15 million to star in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, a movie where he only speaks 700 worlds in 137 minutes. That’s roughly $21,429 per word. Earlier this year, everyone slowly realized that Henry Cavill’s Superman had very little to say in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, even though his character’s name was in the title. He only has 43 lines of dialogue in the whole movie.

So the news that Matt Damon apparently only speaks about 25 lines of dialogue in the upcoming Jason Bourne isn’t completely out of the ordinary. Heroes who speak little and let their actions do the talking for them have been staples ever since Clint Eastwood put on a cowboy hat and squinted his eyes at the desert heat. So just go ahead and consider this your cool trivia of the day.

rogue one death troopers

In their original incarnation, the Imperial Stormtroopers were grunts, working stiffs who suited up for the Empire because it was a job because being cannon fodder for characters with names and faces was something that paid the bills. Over the years, it became easy for fans to justify just how disorganized these guys were and how they seemingly couldn’t hit the broad side of a Sandcrawler at ten paces with a blaster – these guys aren’t the most elite bunch.

Now, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story seems poised to finally explain where the cream of the crop from the Imperial Academy actually went – they’re the Death Troopers, specialized soldiers who are instantly recognizable from their black armor. But like so many new pieces of Star Wars lore, their origins lie in in the distant past of the saga’s real life history.

The Girl on the Train Trailer

Before Gone Girl arrived not too long ago, it had been awhile since there was a juicy, quality thriller of that kind. Now The Help director Tate Taylor is adding another entry in the revitalized field of movies geared towards adults with The Girl on the Train, and it looks like the kind of movie that will keep you guessing right up to the very end.

Emily Blunt plays Rachel Watson, a recently divorced woman who attempts to help the police find a missing woman after witnessing certain activities that she believes may help find her. However, Rachel isn’t the most stable, emotionally or mentally, so when the missing woman ends up sharing a connection with her ex-husband, Rachel may also turn out to be a suspect.

Star Trek TV series

In the U.S., Star Trek fans interested in Bryan Fuller‘s new series will have no choice but to subscribe to CBS All Access. It’s a major play to get TV viewers to sign up for CBS’ new streaming service, and a very smart one — Trek lovers are a devoted bunch, and if checking out a promising-new Trek series means paying for yet another service, you can bet a great many of them will grit their teeth and fork over the $5.99 per month.

But what about geeks outside the U.S.? How will they get to watch the new Trek when CBS All Access is only available in the States? Well, if you’ve got a Netflix account, you’re probably covered. The company has just scooped up exclusive rights to the new Star Trek show, as well as all the old Star Trek shows.  Read More »

Star Trek Beyond TV Spot

In just a couple days, fans will get to see Star Trek Beyond in theaters. Some will be lucky enough to attend the premiere at Comic-Con on Wednesday night while others can see it if they’re able to check out the Star Trek marathon at AMC Theatres that same day. Otherwise, Thursday night will bring the first nationwide screenings of the movie so we can all see if the early buzz on the sequel is right on the money.

In the meantime, a new Star Trek Beyond TV spot has arrived and it reveals an interesting detail about the villain played by Idris Elba. However, if you’re looking to go into the sequel knowing as little as possible, this could be considered a spoiler, so we’ve saved this reveal for after the jump. Read More »

rogue one cameos

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was all about rekindling your love for the Star Wars saga by embracing the familiar and the nostalgic, but Rogue One: A Star Wars Story seems to be all about taking a hard left turn. We already know that the film will feature a different tone from the main episodes and it probably won’t even feature an opening title crawl. This is Star Wars‘ chance to get weird and be different and director Gareth Edwards certainly appears to be embracing that.

And yet, that doesn’t mean he can’t include the occasional callback or include a recognizable cameo. If a little bit of internet detective work is to be believed, Rogue One will feature small appearances from characters who will be more than a little familiar to seasoned Star Wars fans. Naturally, potential spoilers lurk below, so proceed with caution.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

luke cage poster

There was a lot to love in the first season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones series, but one of things I loved most was Mike Colter‘s Luke Cage. We knew from the start that this soulful, sensitive, and dashing bartender (who also, you know, just so happens to have unbreakable skin) was going to be the star of his own series and would eventually unite with the rest of the Marvel Netflix stable of characters for a Defenders series, but Colter made a solo series for Luke feel like a priority in the midst of another character’s show. That’s something special.

With San Diego Comic-Con right around the corner, all things superhero are about to invade headlines with the force of a well-timed punch from Mr. Cage himself. So why don’t we kick off this week with a new Luke Cage poster that will be available to Comic-Con attendees later this week?

Ghostbusters - group

If you had told me two years ago that the new Ghostbusters movie would be the source of so much bitter, angry contention, I would have called you a liar. But here we are. The movie has been out for a few days. You’ve had a chance to see it. I’ve had a chance to see it. We can finally talk about it like civilized adults.

And I think it’s a good movie, maybe even a very good movie. At the very least, it’s colorful and funny and spooky and populated by actors I like watching. It’s certainly no disaster, despite what any wrongheaded internet campaigns are trying to tell you. Director Paul Feig has made a movie that feels right at home in the Ghostbusters legacy…even though it tries too hard to pay tribute to that legacy.

Game of Thrones season 7 shorter, delayed

Winter has finally arrived in Westeros, and that means we won’t get to swing by there again until summer. HBO has announced that Game of Thrones season 7 will debut in summer 2017 — not spring, as in years past — and that it’ll consist of seven episodes instead of the usual ten.

Although this is the first official confirmation we’ve had of HBO’s strategy for the next season, the news shouldn’t come as a huge surprise considering showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have been talking up their plans for a while.  Read More »
