Jeremy Renner, Hawkeye
Jeremy Renner is going to be very busy for the next year. The actor has started shooting “Mission: Impossible 5” with Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie (he’s still part of the team even though it wasn’t properly announced) and next summer he’ll be shooting the fifth, as-yet-untitled ‘Bourne’ movie for a summer 2016 release.

Bourne 5
Perhaps it was inevitable, and maybe too good to be true. Latino Review has been on a hot streak of movie scoops of late, but perhaps their latest just got stymied. The rumor, as of late last night, was that the 5th Untitled Bourne Film, now delayed until summer 2016, was held over because Matt Damon would be returning to the fold as Jason Bourne to cross paths with new ‘Bourne’ franchise actor Jeremy Renner. Longtime Producer Frank Marshall has said in the past having Renner and Damon in the same ‘Bourne’ film would be his ultimate dream, but apparently that’s not happening for the next movie.

The Bourne Legacy, Renner,
We literally were just talking about the fate of this one at the water cooler this morning. For most tentpoles, on average, you don’t want less than a year from shooting to release. Smart studios try to add in a year and a half for safety , some studios like 20th Century Fox tend to rush things (see “X-Men: The Last Stand,” and “X-Men: First Class”) and some studios just wisely push off the date when they’re not ready. Marvel’s “Ant-Man” was recently cutting it close which is why they were in full-speed mode to find a new director to shoot this summer and have the film meet their target release date of summer 2015. Had they not found Peyton Reed as a director, or any replacement, that movie surely would have been pushed to 2016.

Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Philip Seymour Hoffman
There's television and then there's "Louie." Comedian Louis C.K. has brought an auteur approach to his show, one that has consistently challenged the traditional notions of thirty-minute television, and a program that has seen him bring in a wealth of guest stars, not always playing cameos, but carefully selected for their contributions. From David Lynch to Bob Saget to Chloe Sevigny, C.K. has kept audiences on their toes, but there's one guest spot we'll sadly never get to see.

With Edward Snowden still making headlines, the role of government whistleblowers continues to be debated from coffee shops all the way to the White House. Are these people serving the greater good by exposing secret operations or do they put the country irreparably in harm's way from our enemies? Well, the question will be debated once again with the first trailer for "Kill The Messenger."

James Gray, The Immigrant
“The Immigrant” stars the terrific cast of Joaquin Phoenix, Marion Cotillard and Jeremy Renner, and the 1920s-set period piece is superficially something very different for filmmaker James Gray. Gone are the genre trappings, macho-male leads with guns, stories deeply connected to the pain and sadness of family, and the shrouded Gordon Willis-like photography the filmmaker evinced on films like "The Yards," "We Own The Night" and "Little Odessa." However, “The Immigrant,” with its themes of the fallacy of the American Dream, the desire to fit in and idea that no one is beyond redemption is very much a James Gray film. It’s a further continuation of a singular pursuit told slightly differently, retaining Gray’s signature sense of emotional intelligence, intimacy and graceful restraint.

As we recently noted, filmmaker James Gray has only made five films in 20 years. That’s a positively low number, but Gray has had many hardships that distracted from his body of work. His debut “Little Odessa” won a major prize in 1994 at the Venice Film Festival and that jumpstarted his career, but obstacles both minor and major threatened to derail that momentum. For “The Yards,” he ran into the might of Harvey Weinstein and a compromised ending saw him booed at Cannes (Miramax subsequently dumped the film into a few theaters with barely a regular release).

The Immigrant
A strangely chimeric movie, that only reveals its truest colors in its closing moments, James Gray’s “The Immigrant” is a meticulous reframing of the director’s familiar themes and concerns that mostly lived up to our high expectations, while never bursting their bounds the way we might have dared to hope. It’s a beautifully shot film marked by deeply felt performances from its leads, that will play to those attuned to the loveliness of Gray’s minor-key redemption stories, but is unlikely to win new converts among the impatient or those whose expectation of a period drama is something more traditionally epic and grandiose.

The Immigrant
James Gray’s upcoming, beautiful period-piece film “The Immigrant” has a stellar cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Marion Cotillard, and Jeremy Renner. Set in 1920s New York with émigrés coming off the boat to America through Ellis Island, Phoenix plays a manipulative pimp, Cotillard is a Polish migrant coming to the U.S. for a better life and Renner portrays a magician who crosses paths with both these characters.

The Immigrant
Look, we know not all Photoshop artists were created equally, and perhaps poster art is not the domain for real art these days (folks like Neil Kellerhouse and Drafthouse artisans aside), but this recent poster for James Gray's upcoming indie drama "The Immigrant" is… let’s say politely, something else. Sure, even the original French poster had the three stars Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner photoshopped together like they were members of the European 'Avengers,' but this North American poster for the film butchers Cotillard's beautiful face.
