Matt Damon Cops It Back Home For Backing Aussie Gun Laws

"Who cares what this jackass thinks?"

Matt Damon has been blasted in the US by gun supporters after the Hollywood star praised Australia's strict firearm laws.

The powerful National Rifle Association pro-gun lobby group re-tweeted the actor's comments to its followers and other major US news organisations reported his stance, stirring up a hornet's nest of protest with calls to boycott Damon's films and for him to re-locate to Australia.

Damon was also labelled a hypocrite for making tens of millions of dollars from playing gun-toting action heroes in the Jason Bourne film franchise and other movies.

"Who cares what this jackass thinks?" one critic wrote on a Breitbart News article retweeted by the NRA.

"He lives in a fantasy world. I will bet he has armed body guards."

Another Damon critic wrote: "Why doesn't the dickhead just move to Australia?"

Damon also received support from Americans calling for stricter gun laws.

"Aussies are so much smarter than us," a Damon supporter responded on the NRA's Twitter account.

Damon was in Australia promoting Jason Bourne, the latest film in his blockbuster action series where he plays former black ops agent.

"You guys did it here in one fell swoop and I wish that could happen in my country, but it's such a personal issue for people that we cannot talk about it sensibly," Damon said in Sydney.

"We just can't."

WATCH: David Brent Music Video Released

Ricky Gervais shares music video for 'Lady Gypsy' ahead of Brent movie

Brent is Back. Ricky Gervais' multi award-winning David Brent and his band Foregone Conclusion have unleashed a new sound with the single 'Lady Gypsy' ahead of their forthcoming album 'Life On The Road' and the Brent movie of the same name, released in Australian cinemas on August 26.

'Lady Gypsy' is David Brent sharing a former romantic experience with a traveller in the woods. But don't get the wrong idea, she was clean. She was washing her hair in the stream at the time. After some classic Brent confusion about heather, we get a look at the former paper salesman's guitar skills in action during a haunting, folksy instrumental. 

If the teaser is anything to go by, David Brent isn't just back, he's back to his best. The movie takes place twelve years since he left Wernham Hogg with the lead character now a travelling salesmen, chasing his dream of rock stardom by self-financing a UK Tour with 'Foregone Conclusion'.

As well as Gypsy Lady, Gervais has written several new tracks, produced with former Razorlight member Andy Burrows. The album also sees a return for classic Brent tracks like 'Free Love Freeway', 'Spaceman' and 'Equality Street'.

'Tetris' Gets Trilogy As Story "Too Big" To Fit Into A Single Film

Seriously

(Image: Getty)

The news everyone was waiting for.

The Tetris movie (yes, that's already a thing) is going to become a major sci-fi trilogy, as reported by Empire.

Speaking to the creator, Larry Kasanoff, he confirmed the unlikely and unexpected news.

"That’s correct,” he confirmed, “and purely because the story we conceived is so big.

"This isn’t us splitting the last one of our eight movies in two to wring blood out of the stone. It’s just a big story."

And to allay the fears of moviegoers who believed it was just going to be a silly spectacle of blocks fighting eachother, Kasanoff had this to say:

"We’re not going to have blocks with feet running around the movie, but it’s great that people think so.

"It sets the bar rather low!”

All we know at this point is that it's going to be a big-scale science-fiction film.

“I came up with the idea as I was thinking about Tetris and the theme of creating order out of chaos.

"(But) no-one has come remotely close to figuring out what we’re doing."

Darth Vader's Return Confirmed

Get pumped!

Star Wars fans have breathed a collective sigh of relief with the news that the iconic voice of James Earl Jones will be returning to play Darth Vader again.

In the new franchise spin-off, Rogue One, the Sith Lord will be appearing; albeit for a "small amount of time".

The new film will take place before the events of the original Star Wars (a.k.a. Episode IV - A New Hope), meaning that Darth Vader and the Empire are still at the peak of their powers.

LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy warned fans, however, that it's not going to be the longest cameo.

"He will be in the movie sparingly," Kennedy said.

"But at a key, strategic moment, he's going to loom large."

We can't wait!

Could We Have A New Frontrunner For James Bond?

From Billy Elliot to Bond

English actor Jamie Bell, most famous for his role in the iconic Billy Elliot, has become a surprise chance to take the vacant James Bond spot.

Bell, 30, has reportedly been having informal conversations with producers about replacing Daniel Craig - said The Sun.

James Bond 'mogul' Barbara Broccoli has been impressed with the Billy Elliot star in the past and recently cast him in his latest project.

“Barbara has been a fan of Jamie for a long time and has even thought about him playing another role in the franchise before," a source said.

“Everyone remembers Jamie as the little boy in Billy Elliott, but he’s now bulked up and got some serious roles under his belt.

Tom Hiddleston and Aidan Turner are still in the frame, but Jamie has really shown that he is definitely up there competing with them.”

The search for a new Bond comes after Daniel Craig turned down £68million ($137million AUD) to star in the next two films.
