Downsizing to film in Norway
  • Downsizing looks set to film in Norway in August following long negotiations for local concessions. It is expected Matt and other cast members will attend.

  • Riz Ahmed discussed the environment of the Bourne set at Entertainment Weekly:

    Ahmed tells EW the dynamic of working with two veterans of the medium was energizing, and that both men facilitated a welcoming atmosphere on a chaotic set. “It was such a joy working on the Bourne project; Paul Greengrass, they say tone is set at the top, and I think Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon are such cool guys, from my experience with them,” he says. “Very generous, very engaging, very interested, humble, and that just trickles down onto set. So, no matter what kind of madness is happening or how much you’re running to try and make the day, it’s just a good vibe on set.”

    The upcoming film, the fifth in the series, sees Damon reprising the titular role after skipping the fourth installment, The Bourne Legacy, in 2012. Ahmed joins the franchise playing a CIA tech specialist, and he says witnessing Damon’s “genius” abilities made for an inspiring atmosphere all around. “That’s something I really learned from it. I think often we elevate this idea of the tortured genius, but I think [Damon and Greengrass are] geniuses at what they do, and they’re not torturing anyone, from what I can see. Maybe they go home and cry every night, but they were just spreading good vibes, so that was good to see.”

  • Matt was in New York last week to see one of the final performances of John Krasinski's play Dry Powder.

    Downsizing

    There are unconfirmed reports Marion Cotillard has joined Downsizing in a small role. Not from a legit source.

    There was a pic on Instagram yesterday of about 20 sets of identical twins (kids) who were part of a Downsizing scene. www.instagram.com/darlenemorrison

    Jason Bourne New Trailer

    Found a new trailer here:
    http://weibo.com/u/5575486277?refer_flag=0000015010_&from=feed&loc=nickname&is_hot=1

    But I could not find it anywhere else, might be a leaked version or international version. I am sure we will see it some time in the future but if you are interested now, check it out.

    I couldn't find it, everything is in Chinese :(
    I see a lot of pictures of Alicia Vikander, but no trailer
    Is there another way to get to it?

    RE: Re: Jason Bourne New Trailer

    Sorry you can't find it. It should be the first video, I think you click on the picture you saw, or use google translate to get some sense of the page.

    I think the video is embedded and I could not figure out how to just get the video link. I searched on YouTube, definitely not there yet. But I am sure it will pop up somewhere else soon!

    Sorry.

    Re: Jason Bourne New Trailer

    Yes, a trailer isn't visible more. As in time I have looked. Means, it was leak.

    Re: Jason Bourne New Trailer

    That is one great trailer, Rose. Thanks for that! Really set my blood racing. I'm guessing this will be the most successful of all the Bourne films.

    The text says Matt and family are in town for a family celebration/a ceremony involving Lucy's family.

    RE: Matt in Spain

    In that Xabia photo one of Matt's daughters is looking on (Stella?) and you can almost see the wheels turning, like "Here we go again. Why do people always want pictures with my dad?" I wonder sometimes how they feel about having to share him when they're in public. Children of celebrities have a unique perspective on fame.

    It's true! But the reason is simple, Internet. Everyone loves Matt's face! Aaaaannnnnd, Hollywood has no imagination. But also everyone loves Matt's face. :)

    Alexia looks so pretty! She's grown up so fast!
    Are those Lucy's family members?

    Re: Matt in Spain

    I have thought that it is Alexia, but haven't been sure. Yes, she has grown up and became very beautiful girl.
    I think I've seen these people somewhere.

    I guess Matt B is an unofficial member of the family? Or security? He seems to go almost everywhere with Matt.

    No, not so. That's the groom. So it's Lucy's brother.

    He is on a photo near Matt B?

    RE: Re: Matt in Spain

    Can't help but wonder in how mnay ways has Matt's fame and money had to do in improving the lifestyle of Lucy's close and extended family. We know Matt helped Lucy's step-nephew, Ish Jackson get into Nebraska Univ (although Ish's bad actions ended that stint) and it's been mentioned in past how Lucy generously gives away her designer purses and clothes to her sisters, etc.

    RE: Re: Matt in Spain

    I can imagine he's very generous with his money, he's a really nice guy from the sounds of him!
    I wonder the same too though.

    And how many brothers and sisters does she have? Seems like she comes from a big family!

    Re: Matt in Spain

    Lucie has two sisters and the brother?
    It is a pity that there is no Lucie's photo from Spain (
