Just Getting Started trailer 2

Director Ron Shelton built his career making sports movies like Bull DurhamWhite Men Can’t Jump, Tin Cup, and Play It To The Bone, but now his most recent feature was 2003’s Hollywood Homicide, a quasi-buddy comedy that featured the main characters butting heads but ultimately working together to achieve a goal. Now, 14 years later, he’s back with Just Getting Started, yet another film in which the leads squabble and eventually join forces. But this time, the gimmick is that he’s directing old guys: Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones star in this goofy-looking comedy, and you can watch the new trailer right here.

Men in Black trivia

Two of Will Smith‘s most famous, breakout roles almost went to very different actors. In the case of Bad Boys, Jon Lovitz was originally going to play his part opposite of Dana Carvey. After Lovitz and Carvey bailed on the buddy cop movie, the studio had to be convinced Smith was right for the project. On Men in Black, director Barry Sonnenfeld had to do some persuading as well to secure Smith a part producer Steven Spielberg wanted to go to Chris O’Donnell.

fast and furious tommy lee jones

Over the course of seven (and soon to be eight) movies, the Fast and Furious series has built one of the strangest and most likable ensembles in Hollywood history. Once everyone settled into their roles (and it took some of them a few movies to get there), these movies stopped being all about wacky car action and started being about these characters bouncing off each other, trading barbs and blows, but also stares of deep, brotherly affection and whatnot.

At this point, it’s hard to imagine the series without Dwayne Johnson, whose permanently sweaty Luke Hobbs has become provides the crew with a macho moral compass. That means it’s awfully hard to imagine that the role was originally written for Tommy Lee Jones.

Jason Bourne Clips

The summer of sequels is coming to an end later this month with Star Trek Beyond and Jason Bourne arriving late this month. However, we could probably call Suicide Squad as much of a sequel as it is a spin-off to start a new franchise, so maybe it’s coming to an end at the beginning of August. Anyway, closing out July will be the return of Matt Damon as the covert operative with the worst memory ever, and three new Jason Bourne clips give us a taste of what’s in store for the Treadstone assassin this time.

mechanic resurrection trailer

Jason Statham is nothing if not consistent. Although he’s taken detours into blockbuster territory with Furious 7, showcased some strong comedy chops in Spy, and made the (love ’em or hate ’em) wholly singular Crank movies, Statham’s bread and butter has always been the modestly budgeted action movie. The continuously expanding Jason Statham library isn’t full of too many great movies, but it is full of movies that make simple promises and then deliver exactly what you need them to deliver. He is the king of low expectations. You put on one of his movies hoping to watch a tough guy with a cockney accent obliterate a bunch of bad guys and he always delivers. And that’s not faint praise, either. There aren’t many actors who can pull that off.

Mechanic: Resurrection looks like another typical entry in the ever-expanding Statham canon. It looks refreshingly small when compared to most modern action movies, incredibly straightforward, and built entirely around the pleasure of watching this man kick every single ass that crosses his path.

Untitled Next Bourne Chapter

We haven’t seen Matt Damon play Jason Bourne in almost nine years, but time doesn’t seem to have slowed him down, based on the trailers and featurettes we’ve seen for director Paul Greengrass‘ Jason Bourne. Whether Damon would return to arguably his most famous role was a question mark for many years, but after Greengrass had committed to the sequel, the actor signed up.

The plot details for the latest Bourne adventure have been slightly vague, but the newest Jason Bourne TV spot pretty much comes right out and says what the film is about. Below, watch the new Jason Bourne TV spot.

Jason Bourne Featurette

It doesn’t feel like it’s been 14 years since Matt Damon hit the big screen as Jason Bourne in the action thriller The Bourne Identity. For Matt Damon, his journey with the character began a couple years earlier since production on the franchise, based on a series of books by Robert Ludlum, began in 2000. Now Bourne is being called back into action in a world that is tearing itself apart.

In a new Jason Bourne featurette, Matt Damon says he’s always been asked when the next Jason Bourne movie would happen, even after he seemingly completed his turn as the character with The Bourne Ultimatum back in 2007. Now we get to see how Jason Bourne coped with the answers he received about his past across three movies, but there are still secrets he doesn’t know. Watch the Jason Bourne featurette below.

Jason Bourne Trailer

You know his name, and now he remembers everything. What’s left for Jason Bourne to do? We’ll find out this summer when the fourth chapter of the franchise (fifth if you count The Bourne Legacy) that began with The Bourne Identity continues the path of the Treadstone asset who lost his memory, gained it back, and waged a war against those who turned him into a weapon.

However, a new Jason Bourne trailer shows us that Matt Damon‘s character is going to have to come to terms with the things he’s done. After all, he volunteered for the job to begin with, and now he’s caught up in more danger and intrigue again, this time taking the action to Greece, Las Vegas and more. Read More »
