Matt out and about

He looks primed and ready for BOURNE. I LOVE the trilogy and I'm so excited that he has the opportunity to return. I remember him standing on the podium when he received his star on Hollywood Blvd. and they asked him if he'd do another one, and he said, for the fans I would!!!

Martian press

Press for The Martian is about to start. Matt is already lined up to do The Today Show on Monday week, and Andy Weir says he will be going to LA the same week to watch the film, meet the cast and do press.

Interview with Andy starts about the 38 minute mark, and he says it is testing well.

Re: Martian press

Exciting news Paula about the press tour commencing!!!

Ok please don't all hate me, and promise to still be my friends if I tell you, I got a pass to attend an early screening (it can't possibly be a test screening this late in the game) this Tuesday 8/11!!! I even have a spot for a plus one, but alas I'm going alone :(

Re: Martian press

Well that answers the question ;) I guess I will be attending a test screening then! I was able to do the same thing for Monuments Men, and that time even got selected to be in a focus grp afterwards. Other than more shirtless Matt does anyone have any feedback I should give them? LOL

Felicity I'd LOVE to see Stockholm!! Email me some photos if you have a sec. Must be beautiful :)

Of COURSE we want to hear all about your experience! Really looking forward to hearing your general impressions about the film.

Have fun!

It looks like there may be a new, shorter Martian trailer on the way.

RE: New Martian trailer

Interesting!! I really like the trailer they already have, although it does spill a little to much about the plot of the movie, but anymore thats how movie trailers are. 2 more months then we can all see The Martian! I want to go aee it on opening night.
Thanks Paula!

Re: Project Greenlight premiere

Oh wow! Cool. Some good photos on Zimbio as well
http://www.zimbio.com/photos/Matt+Damon/Matt+Damon+Ben+Affleck+Adaptive+Studios+HBO/xK-v9IPsRlE

I was wondering if they were gonna do a premiere for it since it starts airing Sept 13th on HBO. Matt is al naturale with his salt & pepper hair and scruff. He looks relaxed and wow does he look fit.
His whole shirt is soaked through in the newest photos at the gym. I'm starting to feel like a lazy bum after seeing how hard he's been working at the gym.

Premiere

People story, which doesn't say much

http://www.people.com/article/ben-affleck-steps-out-wearing-wedding-ring

(side point: to say Ben is doing great is almost offensive. Ben shouldn't be doing great. But I understand his support and a meaningless statement for the press.)

More gym pics with Lucy

(side note: I think Matt's just protective of Ben when it comes to the press. I know what you mean, though. I think he meant it like, nothing to see here folks, move along. <3)

PGL premiere

Here's some video of the PGL premiere. Not meaning to add any fuel to the fire, but interesting to note the difference between the way Matt signs photographs and the way Ben signs.

Re: COME TO PAPA

Wellllll..... let's not get ahead of ourselves Paula :)

So unfortunately I don't have anything to report on THE MARTIAN screening because I didn't get in :( It's ok though. Admittance into movie test screenings is never guaranteed. If you get a pass you have to then RSVP and then they send you a confirmation, HOWEVER you then have to show up and wait in line, but they often overbook them in case people who RSVP'd don't show. Usually if you arrive about an hour before the screening (which I did) you are good to go. However, this one was a little further from where I live and when I got there just a little after 6pm (the screening was at 7pm) I noticed there were throngs of people lined up outside the theater. I went to get in line, but the barker pointed out that the portion of line I was in was not guaranteed admittance as they had two auditoriums only and that maximum capacity was most likely reached. Needless to say, I stayed and waited the entire 40+ minutes just to see if I'd get in. Some people did give-up & leave and eventually as a courtesy they began giving out free tkts to see a movie currently playing instead. The barker said that 1,000 people had shown up, and that both auditoriums combined held about 800 people. I stayed in line till the bitter end with about 50 people ahead of me. I was literally the last man in line cause everyone behind me had given up. All in all about 200 people were turned away, me included, but I wanted the satisfaction of waiting till the end just to see if I'd get in. I opted not to see another free movie. Some you win some you lose. I was lucky to get into test screenings for The Informant & Monuments Men!

But... I did arrive home to an even nicer surprise. THE MARTIAN movie poster I ordered on Ebay arrived today :) And I did purchase a tkt to attend Come To Papa on Tuesday evening with Matt participating.

Matt-i-ness continues...

Re: COME TO PAPA

Aww that's kind of you. It's alright, I was happy just to have a chance and try. It's about 10 miles from where I live but at rush hour getting across town can take an hour (and it did). It was nice weather waiting outside. Thank you though :)

RE: Re: COME TO PAPA

Bummers! Fighting all that traffic but didn't get in. That's a shame. Nice that the weather was good, anyway. And more Matty around the corner.

Hey, maybe the fact so many people showed up was a good sign! Maybe lots of people are excited to see the movie.

Re: COME TO PAPA

Thanks Paula. Yup more Matty around the corner. When I got home afterwards, THE MARTIAN poster I'd purchased off Ebay had arrived in the mail! I mean you can't fault me for doing what the poster says to do, "Bring Him Home" LOL

Seriously, though I'm very excited about Tuesday evening.

Baltaire Dinner date

Lucy seems to have gotten hair tinted on the tips. Overall I like her outfit just that she strike out with those chunky heels, strappy thin heels would have looked much better with the lycra and flare leg pants.

I think she looks a little bit like Penelope Cruz.

I agree, she does kind of favor cruz a little bit.
She's pretty though! I loved her outfit and her new hair style is cute!
And Matt is looking really good, and i think he just gets hotter with age...

Why do men age so well!?!?

The Martian

Run time for The Martian is apparently 130 minutes. That should be generous enough to bang out some fun/drama. :-)

The rating is described as subject to classification. Does anyone know if this is typical for TIFF or could it indicate some flexibility from Fox re the rating? I assumed it would be PG 13 (US).

Kind of OT, but interesting. Pedro Pascal framed a hand written note he received from Zhang Yimou.
