Opening This Weekend
Matt Damon is back for a fourth turn as the title character in Jason Bourne, in theaters this weekend. The franchise premiered on June 14, 2002 and made $27.1 million in its opening weekend where its receipts were almost doubled by Scooby-Doo‘s $54 million opening.
Matt Damon was last seen as Jason Bourne in 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum. He did not appear in 2012’s The Bourne Legacy. The CIA and it’s director, played by Tommy Lee Jones, are still out to kill its former super spy. If you’re heading out to see Jason Bourne this week, you can expect wall-to-wall action, but don’t expect an Oscar winner.
Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $67.6 million for Jason Bourne.

Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $26 million for Bad Moms.

There are plenty of scary movies for the social media generation out there, but Nerve may be scarier than most, at least for star Dave Franco. Emma Roberts stars alongside Franco in this thriller by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman of Catfish fame. Franco and Roberts become trapped in a deadly mobile game of Truth-Or-Dare, an experience Franco said made him think differently about his own social media use.
Speaking of Dave Franco and social media. This Drop the Mic rap battle between him, James Corden and Cara Delevingne on The Late Late Show is going to be blowing up social media today.
