    Various

    I'm not sure if Matt and Sharlto are continuing to promote the film in another country or have gone back to LA.

    More photos from the Seoul premiere:

    Only a few quotes in this story appear to be new (Matt talking about family):

    Matt talks about the Costa Rica vacation and Monuments Men:

    There are conflicting stories today about whether there will be an Oscars campaign for Monuments Men (an initial story claiming there would be no campaign has been denied by the studio).

    London?

    The next destination on the promo trail may be London, as Elysium doesn't open there until next week.

    Re: London?

    There was a supposed sighting of him in New Hampshire yesterday. Same place matt and family went last year for Kent's birthday. But I don't know if its legit.

    Re: London?

    The timing's almost right (one week out) but I doubt Matt would have been back from Seoul in that time.

    BBC radio 1

    Matt should be in this podcast with Greg James, but I can't find the interview (the tape seems to be out of sync):

    Twitpic with DJ Greg James:

    Presumably taped when Matt was in London weeks ago.

    Thanks, just found it. Nothing of much interest in the interview.
