Jason Bourne

Wow I just looked up the box office for this.
Domestically it's probably going to barely beat The Bourne SUpremacy. They really shouldve kept this dead.

yeah doesnt matter because it only cost a 120 mill to make its still gonna turn a profit so they might make another
 
It's the devastating cocktail of shakycam and 3D. Not just the latter. I'm so glad the audience at large, both domestically and world wide, are rejecting this long worn out fad.
 
AFAIC, having never seen the previous movies, I found it enjoyable.
 
The 3D trend has died. I don't know why it still happens. I don't know why you would want to render a movie like Jason Bourne in 3D.

I mean Pete's Dragon too. The 3D did nothing for that movie, especially with it's rather murky color palette.
 
A part of me wishes they just ended it with Ultimatum and never made a follow-up. Legacy was a disaster waiting to happen and that's just what it ended up being to the franchise. An embarrassment. Hollywood can never quit while it's ahead.

Like how often does it happen that you have sequels getting better each time and a third movie in a franchise being that good? It's almost unprecedented.

The thing about the Bourne movies is that their stories always had a tight focus. And even Legacy had a tight focus despite being anticlimactic and weak on the action directing front. This one didn't have a tight focus.
 
I liked it, specially the ending.

Also Whats up with Vikander's skin? it's so weird to look at.

I'll be picking this up! It wasn't perfect but damn entertaining and a good fourth chapter in the series. If this was the final one I am satisfied with how this ended.
 
I don't know I"m not in the studio.
With the push they did probably almost 100 mill. That's just my guess.

I was reading somewhere that usually with a blockbuster they'll spend almost as much marketing it as they do making it.

So for discussion's sake, they spend 100 mill. $120 production budget, again reportedly, with another $100 mill for marketing. $220 total. About 398 mill grossed. Not bad at all, but again you have to factor in that:
1) the franchise is on a decline. Domestically this is the lowest grossing movie with Damon since The Bourne Identity. Internationally this made the most, but studios don't get as much from overseas as they do domestic.
2) Damon, Greengrass, etc. rates are only going to go higher, so the next budget will go up.
3) Lukewarm reception to the film in general

I dont see why they would make a sequel to this when it doesnt seem like audiences want to see Bourne that bad. It's not a definite that they won't but I wouldnt be surprised if this is the last we see of Bourne at least until a...reboot 10 or so years from now
 
Thanks for the breakdown.
If they make another, I will see it.
I enjoyed all four films.
But the fourth one didn't really have to be made.
Ultimatum finished the story.

i think the release date hurt it also it had to compete with star trek and they both hurt each others box office
 
The release date was fine. Most people thought the movie wasnt that good and the whole box office is on the decline.
 
I was watching it again tonight on Blu Ray, I maintain that I think people were way too harsh on this and this is a strong, entertaining film. Yes, it is NOT as good as the original trilogy films but it's still a GOOD movie in its own right. Strong performances from the cast, kick ass direction from Greengrass (only he can make a scene of someone typing at a computer intense), great chase sequences, straightforward story which is very relevant today, a relentless pulse pounding score from John Powell. I just think this is a really solid action film. I think this movie is a casualty of high expectations and having such high caliber preceding installments that a lot of people saw this as a letdown instead of really judging the film on its own merits.

It just felt good to have the original Bourne back and I'm perfectly fine with ending the franchise here with the way the movie ended. In fact, I prefer this ending to Ultimatum's swimming away ending. I like that Bourne essentially sent the CIA a message pretty much saying "look, I will ALWAYS be two steps ahead of you, so you can't two time me. Don't f*** with me and I wont f*** with you. Just leave me alone." I think thats a solid way to cap the series.

Just my two cents.
 
I thought this movie was awesome. I enjoyed every minute of it. The ending was a classic Jason Bourne moment and a solid note to end on. I'm definitely up for more installments.

I also loved the Easter Egg/reference to Bourne Legacy with Outcome listed in the program files.
 
I didn't enjoy it as much on re-watch but I was tired last night so that could be a factor. I agree with the sentiment people were way too harsh on it though, I do think it's a good action movie and I agree it ended the series better than Ultimatum did.
 
Nah, this film just wasn't as good as the first 3. It lacked excitement and felt lazy.
 
I liked it. There were a few way too convenient plot points and such, but I still found it to be a kickass movie. Much better than the crapfest that Legacy was, ugh.
