The Martian Solid Opening In China

The Martian, N°1 in China with an estimated $34M weekend, and a 5-day total of $48M.
It's on track to a $100-120M total, I think.

RE: The Martian Solid Opening In China

Variety is reporting a slightly higher number but either way I think we are looking at at least 100m in China and overall global box office should pass 600m once Japan releases! The Martian has won some book awed in Japan and is very popular so it should do pretty well in Japan too.

RE: U2 concert

You've read The Martian twice? That's chicken feed! I've read it four times! 😀

Matt Damon Live Journal

Is there an issue with the LiveJournal site for this page (Matt Damon News Column)? I usually just type into google every other day "Matt damon livejournal" and it takes me right to the official news column site and anything (New posts) that has been updated on it, but now when I type into google it just redirects me to old news columns, its just never done that before, maybe the site is acting up or google, idk.

RE: Matt Damon Live Journal

Thanks for the info. Not sure what's up as I haven't changed any settings.

Shopathon? What the heck? And Bono's going to be on too? Could they be doing some kind of video together from Ireland? Curious....

Award season

Matt and The Martian have both been nominated for the Satellite Awards. Useless awards, but an early predictor.

Best Actor win!

Matt has won Best Actor from the National Board of Review. Ridley won Best Director, Drew Goddard Best Adapted Screenplay and The Martian was in the top ten films. Mad Max won Best Film.

Matt's first major acting award? (I know they're looking for popular choices and big names for their ceremony, but...)

RE: Best Actor win!

This is great for Matt and the movie. Their history with best picture is a bit mixed, but the fact that The Martian was recognized in three of the "big" categories (including best actor!!!) is great for its visibility as newer movies come out. This says, "Yeah, we think this movie is totally legit."

I understand that there'll be ups and downs through this process, but it's an excellent start!

And, in weird but possibly related news, somebody is apparent putting out the story that DiCaprio was sexually assaulted by the bear. No, I'm not kidding.😂😜

A summary of the show. Was Matt definitely in LA? Update - definitely with photos at various agencies of Matt arriving and a photo with Snoop Dogg on ig.
