Universal Pictures has just released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for the highly anticipated sequel, “Jason Bourne.” Watch the featurette “Jason Bourne Is Back” below.
The video not only reveals some fantastic new footage from the action-thriller, but also has Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass talking about the character’s legacy and teasing where we find Jason Bourne in their third collaboration in the franchise.
Matt Damon returns to his most iconic role in “Jason Bourne.” Paul Greengrass, the director of “The Bourne Supremacy” and “The Bourne Ultimatum,” once again joins Damon for the next chapter of Universal Pictures’ Bourne franchise, which finds the CIA’s most lethal former operative drawn out of the shadows.
For “Jason Bourne,” Damon is joined by Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel and Tommy Lee Jones, while Julia Stiles reprises her role in the series. Frank Marshall again produces alongside Jeffrey Weiner for Captivate Entertainment, and Greengrass, Damon, Gregory Goodman and Ben Smith also produce. Based on characters created by Robert Ludlum, the film is written by Greengrass and Christopher Rouse.
Opening across the Philippines on July 27, 2016, “Jason Bourne” is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
The House of Lannister’s own Tyrion, Peter Dinklage (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”) provides the voice of The Mighty Eagle in Columbia Pictures’ new adventure comedy “The Angry Birds Movie.”
The Mighty Eagle is a towering legend on Bird Island. Literally – his statue dominates everything else on the island. But no one has seen him in years and some birds are starting to doubt that he ever really existed. But when `angry birds’ Red (Jason Sudeikis), Chuck (Josh Gad), and Bomb (Danny MacBride) have nowhere else to turn, they have nothing to lose as they seek out the advice of this mysterious leader.
“Peter Dinklage is a great comedic actor,” says director Clay Kaytis. “He brings his great, booming voice to the Mighty Eagle.”
“Mighty Eagle is the big, mythical hero on Bird Island, although he’s getting a little old and not in as great shape as he used to be. When we meet him, the only shape he’s in is round,” explains Dinklage. “He’s a recluse, past his heyday, and he’s going to teach the younger birds how to be heroes.”
Peter Dinklage first appeared in the 1995 hit indie film “Living in Oblivion” with Steve Buscemi and Catherine Keener. After that he appeared in a number of films including the Sundance Award Winner “The Station Agent,” written and directed by Tom McCarthy, and was nominated for an Independent Spirit and a Screen Actors Guild Award for his performance. Other recent films include “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” and “Pixels.”
Dinklage has played the part of Tyrion Lannister in the HBO smash hit “Game of Thrones,” now in its sixth season. He has received two Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe for his performance.
In the 3D animated comedy, “The Angry Birds Movie,” we’ll finally find out why the birds are so angry.
“The Angry Birds Movie” takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.
Featuring a hilarious, all-star voice cast that includes Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph and Peter Dinklage, as well as Keegan-Michael Key, Kate McKinnon, Tony Hale, Ike Barinholtz, Hannibal Buress, Jillian Bell, Danielle Brooks, Latin music sensation Romeo Santos, and YouTube stars Smosh (Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla), the Columbia Pictures/Rovio Entertainment film is directed by Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis, produced by John Cohen and Catherine Winder, screenplay by Jon Vitti, and executive produced by Mikael Hed and David Maisel.
Opening across the Philippines on May 11, 2016, “The Angry Birds Movie” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
The aliens are back with a vengeance for “Independence Day: Resurgence,” which represents director Roland Emmerich’s huge return to the genre that made him famous. A sequel to “Independence Day,” the 1996 original sci-fi groundbreaking film that captured the public imagination with its vistas of destruction, its memorable characters and huge impact on both science fiction and disaster movies. With giant alien spaceships unleashing incredibly devastating power upon the world, it took brain, brawn and heroics to figure out a way to fight back.
In “Independence Day: Resurgence,” now, 20 years later, humanity has united to rebuild the world’s major cities, while salvaged alien technology has been utilized to work on solving many big problems such as climate change. But the lingering threat of the extra-terrestrials’ return still hangs over our heads and the Earth Space Defence programme has formed to be ready for when that day comes. Ominously, it appears that our greatest enemy is indeed back.
Emmerich assembles an all-star powerful cast starring returning actors Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum with new characters played by Liam Hemsworth, Maika Monroe and Sela Ward. Liam Hemsworth plays Jake Morrison, a hotshot fighter pilot whose family was killed in the original alien attack. The daughter of former President Whitmore (Bill Pullman), Patricia (played by Monroe), is a tough cookie from a young age when she lost her mother in the original attack. Patricia now works in the White House for the current president played by Sela Ward, but also takes care of her ailing father as he’s haunted by the psychic connection to the aliens established during the last invasion.
From the original blockbuster film, Jeff Goldblum was cast as MIT-trained satellite expert David Levinson, who intercepts and decodes the message coming from massive alien ships hovering over the world’s major cities, figuring out that they’re broadcasting a countdown. Levinson escapes the ensuing attack along with his father Julius (Judd Hirsch), US President Whitmore (Bill Pullman) and a handful of others. Levinson, now the head of the Earth Space Defence initiative, is in the front line of figuring out how to tackle this vast new challenge as even bigger spaceships arrive to threaten us with destruction.
“Independence Day: Resurgence” director Roland Emmerich has established himself as one of the most creative and successful directors in film. Emmerich has proven himself in a variety of genres and has enjoyed blockbuster success with films such as “Godzilla,” “The Day After Tomorrow,” “10,000 BC” and “2012.”
Yet it was in 1996 that Emmerich and Devlin would make the film for which they are still best known: “Independence Day.” Electrifying audiences from the moment its teaser trailer blew the White House apart, the blend of science fiction adventure and grand disaster movie became an influential moment in cinema, relighting the desire for such films and triggering any number of attempts to replicate its formula of huge effects and memorable characters. In the original, huge alien spaceships arrive and begin to lay waste to the world’s cities. Eventually, thanks to some chance discoveries and a lot of heroics, a small group is able to defeat the mothership and save the human race.
Now, 20 years later, Emmerich is back for the follow-up, “Independence Day: Resurgence” which moves the story on 20 years. Earth in the wake of the infamous “battle of ‘96” is a much more unified place, and humanity has learned to use some of the salvaged alien technology for the good of the planet and its people. And yet they live with the knowledge that the aliens will one day return, and in force; and that day has now arrived.
“Independence Day: Resurgence” opens June 22, 2016 in cinemas from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros. Also available in IMAX and 3D screens.
