The Bourne Ultimatum anticipation, picture, news, and information thread!

i think the series was closed off nicely but they are interested in a fourth . whether thats a good thing or not remains to be seen
 
So does anyone have any Idea What kind of Special Exclusive offers certain select Stores will be having in promoting The Bourne Ultimatum dvd yet ?
 
I have no idea, but i'm just as curious.
 
Extras:

Commentary with Director Paul Greengrass
Deleted scenes.
"Man on the Move: Jason Bourne" featurette.
"Rooftop Pursuit" featurette.
"Planning the Punches" featurette (yay! :D)
"Driving School" featurette.
"New York Chase" featurette.

The 4th disc in the "Jason Bourne Collection" will include:

"The Ludlum Identity" featurette.
"The Ludlum Supremacy" featurette.
"The Ludlum Ultimatum" featurette.
Theatrical trailers.

I believe those are the same extras that came with the 3rd bonus disc in "The Bourne Files", so people who bought that set only need to buy "The Bourne Ultimatum", and while they're not getting the cool box, they are not getting screwed with the extra content ;) :up:
 
I just watched this today. Hands down the best movie of the summer, as well as one of the best action movies in recent years.
 
Ha... Only 5 other people thought this film was mediocre to crap, nocomics, AhabTheArab, xwolverine2, Elisha Cuthbert, and Bishop2.
 
I'm watching the extras on Ultimatum right now on DVD. Great stuff. I love the deleted footage, but I'm glad it was cut. Some of the scenes would've ruined the great reveals and the tone of the movie. The deleted scenes kind of upset that tone, but it's still good stuff.

We get a lot more of Scott Glenn's director. And a different first meeting with Landy and Vosen, maybe kind of explains their tension at the breakfast scene.

Also an alternate scene of Ross meeting up with Daniels. The way it played out in the movie was much better. The deleted scene reveals way too much, too early. Lacks subtlety.

You know you can ***** all you want about shaky cam or whatever, but in this day and age, you have to love the guerilla filmmaking approach they took with this franchise. No CG crap, tons of live and practical stunts. Sets almost all shot at the actual locations.

Also have to admire Damon for really taking it to his role and doing as much of it as possible. From the looks of the extras and the movie itself it looks like it's really him doing everything. The camera isn't constantly taking long or wide shots to hide a stunt double. It stays on Damon most of the time.

As far as exclusives, not sure it's exclusive, but at Best Buy you can buy a 2 disc limited edition of Bourne Ultimatum. It comes in a tin case, and a second disc with a couple more extras. One which is about Julia Stiles Nikki.
 
Saw this for the second time tonight, and like Supremacy i enjoyed it more on DVD than in the cinema, the acting and story are excellent and the pace unrelenting, i still see no need for stupid shaky cam during quiet moment like Bourne and Nikki in the cafe or Bourne talking to Marie's brother but the end sequence where Bourne finds out the truth really is well shot.

I have to 180 on the Bourne/Desh fight, whether they slowed it down on DVD or whether being on the smaller screen made the fast edits less jarring, i am not sure, but that fight really was brutal and the ruthless skill a lot more visible than i recalled. The Tangier chase is still over edited though but the tension and crafting of the scene is good, despite being upstaged by the superb Waterloo sequence, Bourne taking the guys out there was badass, weakest car chase of the 3 movies IMO but with the best pay off moment of any of the chases.

I'd up my rating to 8/10 on second viewing and move the movie to second on the list for me.

1. Identity
2. Ultimatum
3. Supremacy
 
Now who think they're gonna f-up an awesome trilogy by making a 4th?

I also enjoyed BU a lot more on DVD than i did at the cinema, but the problem with the movie for is still the last 30 mins. Not only was the car chase a big let down, but the big 'reveal' is still something that i thought was obvious from the start.

The movie is fantastic up until this point, and its the only bit that dissapoints me.
 
Now who think they're gonna f-up an awesome trilogy by making a 4th?

So who is Golgo 13 going after in your avatar?

I dunno, in the commentary, Paul Greengrass seemed open to the idea of another one. He says, "And you want Bourne to live . . . because you might need him again some day."

Now one can argue the exact meaning of that phrase, but to me it just felt like this is the end for now. But if they really wanted to they could go back to it.

But as of now yes, it feels like a perfect trilogy that doesn't need a dumb fourth one like Lethal Weapon garbage.

A 4th movie would complete the Paul Greengrass trilogy though.

I would take out the shaky camera when bourne crashes the police car and the tourag. It's like someone positioned it there:cwink: and sort of breaks the fourth wall between movie and reality.
 
I think Hunter Rider means the quiet moment Bourne and Nikki had in that safehouse or apartment.

Honestly after a while I didn't notice the hand-held camera work. They did a good job of integrating it into the feel of the movie.

If Hunter Rider dislikes it so much for theatrical movies, he better avoid CLOVERFIELD like the Plague.
 
I think that Bourne Identity is easily EASILY the worst in the series.

For me I'd rate them:
Identity: 8/10
Supremacy: 9/10
Ultimatum: 10/10 perfect thriller

I am the complete opposite, i think Identity is the best by some way, with Ultimatum being the worst (though i still think its a good movie).
 
^^^ Identity is easily the best IMO

I will be :)

I didn't notice it so much on the small screen but sitting with a massive screen shaking all over the place all the time was nauseating.
 
I hope you never step foot on a plane or a boat Hunter Rider. It sounds like you got a weak stomach.
 
"The Blair Witch" made me motion sickness as well.

To me, the movies were pretty bland and boring. Yea, the action scenes were good, but that was about it. The story was cliche' and the "loss of memory" thing has been overdone hundreds of times on tv. This was that and a mix of the weapon x program. I'm happy the franchise did well during its run, just not my cup of tea (and from the looks of things I'm not alone).
 
I don't think any movie in 2007 had as good of a pace set up from the get go as The Bourne Ultimatum.

And no other movie took as an ambitious and guerrilla approach to big budget film making as this one did. It was indie style filmmaking on a budget.
 
Identity was very underwhelming. In comparison to Supremacy and Ultimatum it's almost wooden. It's the directing in the sequels that gives the movies the needed boost of energy and intensity.
