Some SPOILERS Matt Damon and Jason Bourne are inextricably linked, like RDJ and Iron Man or Harrison Ford and Indiana Jones. As long as Matt Damon is still kicking, it’s not conceivable that someone else could play Jason Bourne, and an attempted knock-off, The Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner as Not Jason Bourne didn’t work out. Full Story

A while back there was an announcement that there would be a remake of Splash, the 1984 mermaid-themed rom-com that convinced a generation that if we just spent enough time in the tub we, too, would turn into a mermaid like Madison. The announcement of a Splash remake felt as inevitable as it was unnecessary, since we’re going all-in on this “remaking everything from the 1980s, for better or worse” trend. Full Story

Are you ready for Mel Gibson to come back? No? Me either. But he is. His first film as a director since Apocalypto ten years ago is coming out this fall, with a splashy Venice Film Festival debut and an Oscar-friendly November release date. Full Story

Sarah messaged me yesterday about the new trailer for M Night Shyamalan’s Split starring James McAvoy, commenting that James looks amazing in the movie. I immediately told her that I wanted to write the article because I love James McAvoy, especially if he “looks amazing”. Full Story

The dearth of good blockbusters this summer has left the cinematic landscape wide open for smaller films to rise to the top—call it the Summer of the Sleeper Hit.

Yesterday the Toronto International Film Festival announced the first slate of films that will screen during the festival, from September 8-18. This is only the first wave of titles, and TIFF 2016 is already a doozy. I don’t even know where to begin sorting out the schedule.

Here’s a fun surprise—a movie that was not really on my radar, Star Trek Beyond, turned out to be the most fun and well-made summer action movie since Captain America: Civil War. In 2009, JJ Abrams rebooted Star Trek, but his heavily Star Wars-influenced take on the material displeased classic Trek fans (they’ve asked not to be called Trekkies anymore). Full Story
