The Bourne Legacy

GeekScholars Movie NewsWhat an outstanding episode of the GeekScholars Movie Newspodcast this week, as Tom Chick, from Tom vs. Bruce, and theQuarter to Three film podcast, joins the crew as a special guest host! 

The week, the GeekScholars tackle a whole bunch of news, including James Gunn being named the director of Guardians of the Galaxy, a potential actor to play Dr. Strange, and sequel news surrounding the next Bourne movie, a potential Ted follow-up, and even some tidbits about Transformers 4. You’ll even hear what everyone had to say about the newly revealed (or exposed) RoboCop armor.

The GeekScholars then move onto their Preview Review for the week, with a bunch of different opinions and insights into the trailer for Steven Spielberg’s wildly anticipated presidential biopic, Lincoln.

After that, Tom and Fox debate the merits of Residential Evil: Retribution, with two very different takes on the fifth entry into the zombie video game franchise.

Listen to it all right here!

Bourne

With the near collapse of the James Bond movie franchise I started to think that we don’t have enough super spies to rely on. We have the Mission Impossible series and the Bourne Series to compete with Bond. That’s it. While I love Ethan Hunt, The Bourne Series has never quite done it for me, primarily because the movies always end up becoming one long chase sequence. Just once I’d like to see the Outcome agents do some, you know, spying.

JEREMY RENNER and RACHEL WEISZ star in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: "The Bourne Legacy".  Writer/director Tony Gilroy expands the "Bourne" universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films.

Between its excellent cast and a unique way to add to the Bourne series, The Bourne Legacy both brings new depth to the original trilogy and adds new intrigues to the mix.

The shadow of Matt Damon’s Jason Bourne haunts the proceedings in The Bourne Legacy as co-writer/director Tony Gilroy reveals that Treadstone, the clandestine operation that created Bourne, was just the tip of the iceberg.

GeekScholars Movie NewsPrometheus lands in theaters in just two days! In honor of the occasion, this week on GeekScholars Movie News, the crew names their picks for who they would recast if 1986?s Aliens was to be remade in the modern era, as part of the latest installment of the Casting Competition.

We’ve also got two hot preview reviews for you. First up is the the trailer for the highly anticipated Les Miserables, starring Hugh Jackman, which (spoiler alert), we were all blown away by. We then hand out grades to the trailer for The Bourne Legacy, which was met with a more mixed reaction from the crew.

From there, listen to what GeekScholars Chris and Lauren thought of Snow White and the Huntsman, and enjoy some movie news quickies including tidbits about Sylvester Stallone possibly stepping back into the ring (again), G.I. Joe: Retaliation, casting rumors for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and who Leonardo DiCaprio almost played in Nolan’s Batman franchise.
