Monuments Men, WEF
  • Matt will appear on Letterman, Kimmel and Live with Kelly and Michael next week (mostly pre-taped). There will also be Monuments Men premieres in New York, Berlin, Milan, Paris and London.

  • Photos from a Philanthropic Roundtable that Matt attended (as an audience member) in Davos are available here. The chair was Tony Blair, and panel members Richard Branson, Bill Gates and Muhammad Yunus, and video is available at YouTube.



  • Late reports from Davos: Business World India and Expressen.

    Business World India
    Hollywood star Matt Damon has brought charm, glamour and the water crisis to Davos. After co founding an initiative to help deprived communities with clean, sustainable access to water, Damon has been championing the cause for the last few years.

    By creative innovative funding solutions, Damon's foundation water.org is supporting municipal bodies to become more efficient. Damon told me that the efforts he has launched in India have shown excellent results.

    Expressen
    [Swedish] EU and democracy minister Birgitta Ohlsson had a hectic start to the week. She arrived a few days earlier than her colleagues in government. Her bag is already full of business cards.

    "It's bizarre, to be honest, the people you meet. You become almost starstruck, if you can say so. Everywhere you look different world leaders go by. But in and of itself, the person I have seen people stand and queue for most was Matt Damon", she says.

    Omaze.com

    Matt and Ben apparently shot a promo for omaze.com yesterday. From their website: Omaze offers the chance to win once-in-a-lifetime experiences that also support social missions.

    FYI: for some reason NBC just posted an old Today interview with Matt for Stuck on You. It's a very cute interview that's over 6 minutes long.

    Love the photo of Matt at the Philanthropic Roundtable, wonder what he is thinking :) I read through the Monuments Men journal of Claire Simone (http://clairesimonesjournal.tumblr.com/) the other day, and really looking forward to seeing the movie. I saw a photo of Matt in a magazine when waiting to go in for a MRI brain scan at the hospital today, helped me through it. M..

    Matt's very engaged in the roundtable as an observer (lots of reaction shots of him in the audience in the video).

    Good luck with the scan. A Globes or SAG photo in the magazine?

    Reviews for Monuments Men out tomorrow - expect them to be mixed. It looks like there's not much character development or character definition, but the movie should be entertaining.

    Reviews

    The reviews are consistent - the film is stodgy and lacks momentum with noble intentions. A summary:

    http://blogs.indiewire.com/thompsononhollywood/monuments-men-review-george-clooney-matt-damon

    Not award-worthy but a theatrical treat:
