    Report on the race including comments from Matt:

    Some of the 16,000 runners at the Surf City marathon on Sunday may have thought their post-race delirium got the best of them.

    But they really did see “The Martian.”

    Actor Matt Damon ran the half marathon, then posed for selfies with fans as he waited with some buddies for his wife Luciana Barroso to finish.

    “My wife wanted to do it. I've been working out of town for the last couple weeks so I was in no position to say no to her,” he said with a laugh. “For not training, I think we did well.

    “We broke two hours,” he said, referring to himself and his friends.

    Damon said he arrived in Surf City at 2 a.m., coming from the Directors Guild of America Awards in Los Angeles, held Saturday evening. He caught a few hours of shuteye at a hotel before hitting the pavement, he said.

    “I was on the fence this morning. I woke up and was like I don't know (about this),” he said, noting the early hour. “Once I got going, I was ok.”

    Race officials said they didn’t have results under Damon’s name. Barroso came in at 2:13:40.

    Re: Half marathon

    Sorry - the links don't go to the exact record. It's Matthew Greenleaf, the surname of a character in The Talented Mr Ripley. Matt has previously said he uses the name as an alias.

    Don't worry, thank you.
    So how much he run? 1:40:24?

    Re: Half marathon

    1.58.05

    Lucy was 2.13.40

    Both did great. And good on Lucy for wanting to do it with friends! The report of Matt visiting an In'n'Out burger chain after the DGA Awards was probably correct as he would have been traveling to the venue.

    Re: superbowl bourne 5

    The title will likely be Bourne Betrayal (as the author leaked the news), and the preview should go for one minute. Hopefully it doesn't spoil too much!

    Re: superbowl bourne 5

    So I got it all wrong - different title and running length.

    RE: Trailer - 30 seconds only

    I just missed the live clip but since it's everywhere online I caught it there.

    Thoughts: Oooooohhh! 1) He looks AMAZING. 2) So wasn't that Vikander's voice saying, "We need the perfect weapon." So, she is some type of official/agent? Or maybe that's just artful misdirection.
    3) I like that they're not showing us much. 4) That title gif/moving poster is terrific. 5) Are the stunts veering into "too big", as in too Bond-ish?

    Re: Trailer - 30 seconds only

    Alicia looked like a government rep in the Washington pics so that's probably not a surprise.

    RE: Re: Trailer - 30 seconds only

    I missed it live :( saw on YouTube. Wow a lot of brute force fighting. I like the poster. Surprised the name is so simple. Is Pamela Landy back??? I hope so.

    Cool DGA pics and Huntington Beach marathon! He's a busy guy :)

    Re: Trailer - 30 seconds only

    The trailer looks amazing. Fingers crossed that, along with the heavy-duty macho violence and action, they didn't forget the vulnerability and introspection that make Bourne so powerful and deep and that Matt is the master of playing. I'm really excited for this film!
