    Bourne, Hanna

    I suppose Bourne is seen as a success, but obviously the numbers could have been better.

    I just wanted to update the situation in Jacksonville, where our friend Hanna is. The city is experiencing hurricane wind gusts of 60 - 80 mph and is experiencing some coastal flooding and also flooding along the river. Praying for you, Hanna!

    Re: Bourne, Hanna

    Best wishes to Hanna.

    For Matt's birthday last year, he was on the set of Bourne for the first day filming the bare-knuckle boxing scene in Tenerife.

    Re: Bourne, Hanna

    In the US the numbers could have been better, it's true.
    But internationally, J.B. did pretty well.
    Now, we have to see if as stated before, there will be another Bourne movie with Matt & Paul.
    I think so.

    Re: Bourne, Hanna

    I hope not. Hopefully Matt and Paul can do something original instead.

    Re: Bourne, Hanna

    If they do another Bourne (which is surely not certain), I think they are smart enough to start a new "thread" of movies to lift the franchise into new territory. That may or may not be possible. Let's face it, Bourne is a money maker. If they can keep the budget low, Matt, Paul, the studio--and others--will make a buck from what would ultimately be an entertaining movie. But I agree, Matt and Paul are great at what they do and could probably collaborate on something fresh that highlights their collective talents. I'm still waiting for Matt to do another film that demands his deep skills--like The Talented Mr. Ripley. With the flock of great directors who love working with him, I'll bet he could make that happen. Too bad he couldn't have done Manchester, but it's good Casey got a break.

    Finally, 400 million. Cheers. I very much waited when it happens.
    I think that Matt will not be any more playing Jason Bourne, unfortunately.
    It is so healthy that they took part in reading Good Will Hunting .

    Hanna, we worry for you and wait for messages.

    I lived!

    I just want to say thank you to everybody, thank you for the thoughts and prayers! At the last minute the hurricane took an east turn so some of it was 15 miles off the coast, if it had not taken that east turn, we would've gotten slammed even harder than we already did!
    My house is about 20 minutes away from Jacksonville Beach and 15 minutes away from the intercoastal, our house received winds up to 70 mph but luckily the flooding did not reach us but around our neighborhood we have had several trees down and roofs a little messed up.. And so far the death toll is 9 people.
    Saint Augustine Florida is about 30 minutes away from us and they got hit very hard Unfortunately. :(

    But you guy's prayers REALLY worked and thank you so much for thinking of me! It was VERY freaky and I was mostly upset because I didn't have Internet coverage yourself in service so I couldn't check this website and see how my buddy MATTY D was doing haha
    Ill show damage pics soon

    Once again thank you all so much, I'm alive and back,

    Thank you, Hanna, that's good news. Glad you are in good shape. Spend a lot of time on MDnC now!

    RE: I lived!

    Whew, what a relief! So glad you're OK Hanna. So grateful that the eye stayed at sea, it could have been so much worse. It sound like you are vulnerable to flooding there.

    RE: I lived!

    It was really scary, we all had our fingers crossed and then we saw it moved 15 miles east off coast and that was better than it was going to do.
    We got a hard impact but no where near as bad as it would have been if it hadn't made that 15 mile east turn...

    The wind was incredible. I'll be putting damage pictures on my insta. soon

    For some reason my LTE coverage is acting up so I can't post right now

    It was a dig at Trump. The mostly young NY audience ate it up.

    The Great Wall Official Trailer 2

    RE: Great Wall Panel

    Some thoughts about the panel.

    Technically, really well done. Rather lame questions from the host. I imagine it will be up soon so I won't go into detail about it now.

    They played a second trailer, which was much better than the first. But it didn't sound like Matt's voice! It was almost like some other actor did a voiceover. Very weird. This trailer was hugely better however. I'll be curious to hear the reaction.

    Matt had a great Trump "Wall" dig, which he had obviously prepared ahead of time. "If Trump wins, Mexico will probably build a wall to keep him out." Loved it.

    If the audience wrote about nostalgia, then I think for Matt and Ben this night was special. Nobody will be able to understand that they felt.
