Martian, Bourne
  • From an interview with Ridley Scott at bis-space.com:

    It’s a very challenging role for Matt because for most of the film he’s on his own...
    Scott: Exactly. You are all on your own and you are holding down the stage by yourself and you’ve got to keep it alive and keep it amusing. I think people know that Matt has a great sense of humour and he enabled himself to tap into that humour, which I would call laconic humour or gallows humour. But you know, all these elements mean that it comes down to a good film. And I loved working with Matt.

    You also build the Rover vehicle didn’t you?
    Yes, and that’s now in Wadi Rum, we gave it to the King of Jordan. He has a tank museum and he was very happy to have it – I’m sure he’s driving it right now.

    Don't forget there's the Under Armour webpage which has Ares 3 clothing available. Cool partnership/cross marketing. Thanks Rose!

    The Martian, Bourne

    Great interview with Ridley. "I loved working with Matt." Of course he did!

    Instagram post from Matt's boxing friend discussing "the photo".

    Re: Instagram picture and video

    Thanks H. These pics (and previous ones we've seen) look very similar to the Berlin scene of Matt and Julia trying to escape and walking through a demonstration.

    Re: Instagram picture and video

    That's what it made me think of too! Interesting that this is the first BOURNE film now with social media at a peek so we have a flood of photos and candids for this one that we didn't have for the other 3 films. The fan base is stronger than ever.
    It's cool how the promotion for THE MARTIAN, PROJECT GREENLIGHT, and BOURNE beginning to shoot are all happening now. Nice to see Matt all over and in such good shape and popularity everywhere :) He's a good egg.

    TIFF

    FYI: The TIFF website lists the press conference for The Martian starting at 1:45 (local time) Friday. They are streaming the Demolition conference in the morning but nothing like that was listed for The Martian as of yet. I'll be curious to see who's there from the awesome cast.

    Re: TIFF

    Thanks Paula. Matt was still on set in Tenerife as of an hour or so ago.

    The premiere will be in 3D, and the Martian's IG page is promoting it will have live red carpet coverage from the premiere, and suggesting a lot of the cast will be there.

    Happened to see this tweet a bit ago. So maybe we'll get to see it? Hopefully somebody will upload to YouTube.

    Re: TIFF

    If Sebastian Stan is at the press conference there should be a good chance of someone saving it to YouTube. His fans are pretty committed!

    Looks like Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Sean Bean, Chiwetel Ejiofor arrived at Toronto.

    Billboards abound

    I was driving down Sunset Blvd today and the big building that always has HBO ads on it has this big PROJECT GREENLIGHT poster on it, and on the opposite side of the street was a MARTIAN billboard. How much Matt can one street handle?? HAHAHA

    Re: Billboards abound

    :D I was glad I actually could snap a photo in the driver's seat that wasn't blurry, just in time at the red light. When BEHIND THE CANDELABRA was coming out they had the big poster of Douglas' backside with the long white coat on the side of the building.
