New Zoo trailer and poster, Elysium filming in Mexico - Matt Damon News Column
New Zoo trailer and poster, Elysium filming in Mexico
  • A new international trailer and poster for We Bought A Zoo has been released and is available at Coming Soon and Recent Movie Posters. A picture of the soundtrack cover by Jonsi is available Exclaim.ca.

  • Matt is currently filming Elysium in Mexico. A photo of Matt on the set at Villa Coapa is at the Twitter page of GBNAVA (possible spoilers). More details about the film shoot in Mexico is at El Siglo De Torreon.

  • An article by Matt and Gary White about Water.org is at the Huffington Post, including:

    Through WaterCredit, we have explored the application of microfinance to water and sanitation needs. With the support of the Pepsico Foundation, we have reached more than 250,000 people with loans that allow them to pay connection fees for house taps and to construct toilets. This was done at an average philanthropic cost of $24/person, which, in turn, leveraged more than three times that amount in the form of commercial capital to complete the finance package for each household.

    We are now taking this to scale with an $8 million grant from the Pepsico Foundation announced last Thursday and a $3.8 million grant from the MasterCard Foundation. We project that this philanthropic capital will leverage an additional $36 million in commercial capital, reaching about one million people. In the case of India, we will drive the philanthropic cost per person served down even further, to $10 by the end of the grant.

    I wonder why they left Matt's character's son out of the poster for the move - that seems very strange. Any thoughts?
    I wonder how the film will handle Matt's wife's death and then suddenly making a love story between him and Scarlett Johansson...

    Because the daughter is cuter? But the son (Colin Ford) is well known in his own right as a recurring character on Supernatural. And this poster gives a release date of 22 December, which isn't the US date.

    I don't think there will be much of a love story and it could be a ruse for the trailer - there certainly wasn't in the real life story.

    There's another alternate poster available:

    Yes, the girl is very cute!...But I like the alternate poster better :)
    I wish we got more coverage and candids of the Mexico shoot, but considering the secrecy around the plot of the film I'm sure we're lucky we get to see anything at all!

    This would be the least amount of on-set photos or stories we've ever got from a film shoot involving Matt (except for probably Gerry).

    But it makes the rest of the process (from filming until release) a lot more interesting. On the first day of filming of The Informant in Decatur, we had video footage and multiple photos of Matt in character on set (and the script had already been available in book form and online). Mystery is good.

    Filming in Mexico

    Here's an article with details about the location shoot in Mexico (and has one picture previously linked here, but doesn't give appropriate credit):


    One sequence will feature high vision pictures of a helicopter at night over Mexico City. Forty futuristic weapons with ammunition have also been viewed.

    Very cute - thanks.

    Happy Feet 2

    Here's the full interview with Matt (done as part of the Contagion junket):


    And here's a clip with Will and Bill, which includes Matt singing some of the songs from the behind the scenes clip:

    New Zoo trailer and poster

    How cute is that little girl! I think she looks a bit like Isabella in this photo;

    And Zoo looks amazing! ☺

    The second trailer was much better.

    I love that clip on E! where Matt Damon is talking about his wife and he goes ”That's my girl right there!!” Awww.. :$
    5 hours ago via

    Does anybody know if this is from a recent interview or an older one? I don't recall that quote.
    Also saw a tweet that said Matt will be in mexico for 2 wks. Don't know if that is accurate or not.
    mattdamoncolumn From: mattdamoncolumn Date: November 6th, 2011 12:26 am (UTC) (Link)
    I saw that Twitter post and I didn't recognise the quote.

    I think Elysium is filming in Mexico for at least two weeks or maybe up to four - one cast member isn't getting to set until the end of November.
