Beyond ‘Bourne’: Matt Damon’s Box-Office Powers Waning

Things used to be so good for the man who played Will Hunting. So how come they’re going so wrong for Matt Damon?

The latest box office disappointment for the leading man is likely to be “The Adjustment Bureau,” opening from Universal on March 4. While it may not be a disaster, on the heels of “Green Zone” and “Hereafter” it is hardly the home run Damon needs to secure his place among the industry’s top stars.

The commercial decline seems unexpected  for the well-regarded movie star whose action-man status seemed assured by the dominance of the "Bourne" series starting in 2002. Those three spy-thrillers took in over $950 million dollars.

The numbers, however, don't lie.
