Moby
  • Moby confirmed he has recorded a new version of Extreme Ways for the end credits of Jason Bourne, and has already seen the film.

    To date, Moby has landed six Grammy nominations for his music, though many folks likely know his sound from the movies. His instantly recognizable jam “Extreme Ways” serves as the theme to the “Bourne” franchise starring Matt Damon. Just like John Barry and Monty Norman are tied with their signature “007” theme, Moby is forever tied with Jason Bourne for his badass “Bourne” theme.

    The fifth installment, “Jason Bourne,” is set to hit movie theaters on July 29.

    “I’ve seen a rough cut of it, and honestly, it’s really special,” Moby said. “Matt Damon is back involved, as is (director) Paul Greengrass, and it’s really exciting. I’ve done the closing credits for that as well.”

  • Actor James van der Beek is also in Downsizing, as he confirmed on his Instagram, and attended a baseball game with Matt and Kristin Wiig in Toronto last week.

  • Matt is providing the commencement speech at MIT on Friday 3 June at 10am. A live webcast will be available here.

    Sharp magazine

    Matt will be on the cover of canadian magazine SHARP and there is a great article about him. It says that his whole family is in Toronto with him.

    Re: Sharp magazine

    The article says nothing. Not sure what the point of these interviews are when they are so bland and local-interest only (Matt's supporting the local team while he is in town). We'll get a lot of these in the next few months and Matt may be better off doing fewer interviews and saying nothing because of how much they will be scrutinized (but he always plays the game).

    Bourne commercial

    They showed a new (to me) Bourne commercial during the basketball playoff final (U.S.) tonight. Not impressed, unfortunately. They seem to be obsessed with saying "You've already seen this movie!" in the advertising. Such a buzz kill. I think they will really need good reviews to overcome these adverts, frankly.

    Re: Bourne commercial

    And the tweets in response to the commercial were frequently negative. The marketing is not working well, and they don't seem to be trying very hard to create any buzz or excitement (eg the lazy poster).

    RE: MIT

    Matt's address was AWESOME! I actually got choked up. Beautiful. A well deserved standing ovation.

    Great to see all the family there. Matt's mention of them, and Lucy in particular, was soooo adorable. Ten years married and he's still totally gone on her. Awww....

    MIT Commencement Speech

    Matt's address was truly great.
    I know he always say he wouldn't run for office.
    But he should.
    He's a very inspiring person.

    PS: Glad to see all the family there.

    Box office

    Boxoffice.com is predicting an opening weekend of $65m and total domestic US gross of $195m for Jason Bourne. Just guesses, but educated guesses.
