TOP MOVIE NEWS: FRIDAY 1 JUNE
New Trailer for The Bourne Legacy, Title and release date for Apes prequel sequel
If you're looking for action, the new Bourne film looks to have plenty of it.
The fourth installment of the franchise (directed by Tony Gilroy, who wrote the previous Bournes) has no Matt Damon (or indeed, Paul Greengrass) in it, but what it does have is Jeremy Renner as Aaron Cross.
The premise of the film seems to be that Edward Norton’s villain wants to wipe out all of the genetically modified killers that could lead to Jason Bourne-type disasters. This forces Cross to run for it, rescuing a beautiful scientist (Rachel Weisz) along the way.
The Bourne Legacy is released in UK cinemas on 13 August 2012. Is it wrong to make a new Bourne without the series' main star? Or will Jeremy Renner be a more than adequate replacement?

Title and release date for Apes prequel sequel
We know what Caesar, the talking ape, does next - take over the world with the rest of his species, right?
Well, yes - but how - that's the question.
We now have a title and release date for the Rise of the Planet of the Apes follow-up. It will be called Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and will be released in the US on Memorial Day, 23 May 2014.
Director Rupert Wyatt, who also directed the last one iluminates:
“You could start this story again eight years from where we left off,” said Wyatt when asked about potential ideas for the sequel. “The next generation of apes, those that have come from our protagonists, perhaps going in to a conflict with humans and showing real fear, in the same way as going into war for young soldiers in this day and age, telling their story.”
“Or how apes are taking over cities," he continues, "and being moved into human environments and having to interact with them and deal with things that are part of our culture and understand and evolve through them.”
