    International Box O - Great Wall

    From Deadline:

    Legendary and Universal’s Matt Damon-starring fantasy has a total international cume of $199M through Sunday with much play still to come.

    There were six openings this frame on the epic Zhang Yimou helmed China co-production. Universal now has it in 25 with an $8.8M weekend estimate for a $29.2M cume to date. Adding in another $1.2M in China (cume $160M+), where Legendary East is handling, the full offshore frame was $10M. France opened to No. 1 with $2.3M at 361 dates, on pace with Wrath Of The Titans and well ahead of Dracula Untold, Gods Of Egypt, Immortals and 47 Ronin. Germany was a No. 2 bow with $2M at 501 dates. There, it’s in line with Wrath, Dracula Untold and Immortals, and above Gods Of Egypt and 47 Ronin.

    Re: International Box O - Great Wall

    In America have shown a trailer on TV? Because networks have filled in messages "why Matt Damon plays the Samurai? " In other countries his role perceive normally. Just nonsense. The result has turned out opposite to on what creators of the movie counted.

    Re: Interview

    Matt at Davos was popular.) The story of an eyewitness :
    "There are a lot of famous people here at Davos, but I have to confess I was really curious to see Matt Damon. Finally did…up (pretty) close. He really seems like a smart, caring person, who has a smile that bears an uncanny resemblance to my son...
    Huge line to get into the reception where he was speaking…"

    There was a lot of interviews: BBC business, Reuters, was a press conference. Matt says at 6:49. Note how actively journalists pull their smartphones)

    Oh no, here we go again. There is negative press on statements made by Damon on supporting Trump now that he'll be president. I cannot find the audio clip of him saying what he did or the context in which he answered. These articles don't include the audio.

    I DID find these clips where he mentions Trump in snippets

    His statements were completely non-inflammatory and anyone who pretends to be outraged by them either doesn't know what he actually said (a successful America is good for the world) or is looking for clicks. End of story.

    It is not surprising. I understand that America has divided into two camps. Bad said about Trump - will be unhappy some. Said something good-will be unhappy with others. Many people read only the headlines that are taken out of context. Nothing new.

    Video re Stella partnership

    A very effective 50 second vid in which Matt outlines the Stella partnership and invites public participation.

    I think they could push his even better by offering one drink free, perhaps in one city for one night, or a video coupon, or something like that. Because most people out at the bar drink more than one beer. Lots of free publicity. Matt could make a funny vid advertising it.
