BOURNE 5 Locks August 2015 Release Date

The year 2015 is certainly going to be a jam-packed one for film and for big ones at that. Other than "Star Wars: Episode VII", "Jurassic World" and "Mission Impossible 5", the fifth "Bourne" film in the franchise is now getting in on the action. Slated for an August 2015 release date, Jeremy Renner is returning to star.

The last film "The Bourne Legacy" was the first film to star Renner as Aaron Cross instead of Matt Damon as the signature Jason Bourne character. The film was met with mixed reviews and grossed 50% less than the previous film, but the franchise still has a pretty solid built-in audience, so it's not very surprising that they're producing another one.

Instead of Paul Greengrass at the helm, who helped make the Damon films so popular, or Tony Gilroy who directed the last one, "Fast and Furious" helmer Justin Lin is stepping up to the plate for this one. This seems like a very strategic and smart move for Lin, who recently departed the car-racing franchise, giving James Wan a try at it.

Do you think this is a good release date for the film? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.
