    It's one of the pics I couldn't post earlier (photo agency restrictions), so I was very happy to find it at another site. Damn fine photo.

    Glad you react the same way when seeing those fine pictures of Matt.
    Gotta love his smile!

    Love and hugs,

    p.s. if anyone is going to the premiere of the bourne ultimatum in Birmingham, please contact me at my e-mailaddress: paulineg@casema.nl I have a huge favor to ask you. Thanks.

    Sorry if displaying an e-mailaddress is not allowed, but I don't know how to do this in another way.

    Pauline,

    Do you know the date of the Birmingham premiere yet?
    From: (Anonymous) Date: July 11th, 2007 12:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
    Yes, the customerserivce of the cinema where the premiere is going to be held at, e-mailed me back and said it was going to be on August 17nd.

    I've tried everything to be able to be there, but due to the safety of my electrical wheelchair on the plane, I can't go.

    I have a promise to keep to Matt, that's why I need to give him a letter, and I don't trust those fanmail addresses.

    Send the letter via LivePlanet or even Matt's brother Kyle at the address on his website: kyle@kyledamon.com

    Thanks for the Birmingham info - I'll add it to the schedule.

    It would be only fair if Matt would come to Berlin for the promotion of The Bourne Ultimatium, since they made most of the film there.
    And it'd be a lot easier for me as well to get there, 5 hours by train.

    I love doing those kind of trips for rockbands or Matt.

    I was trying to find the international dates tonight, and only have some vague ideas. The Australian release has been pushed back a week to August 30, and the UK dates are in mid-August.

    Nothing confirmed yet, but there will be Deauville, London and Birmingham, and likely Berlin and Madrid.

    The US premieres are still unclear, but apart from Deauville it is likely to be Oklahoma City and probably Boston. Maybe Texas also.

    I'm so gonna go if Matt comes to Berlin again.

    Thanks for keeping us all up to date on Matt and his projects!

    I'll let you know if I find out some more about the premiere dates :-)

    Minutes of new "Bourne Ultimatum" on official site

    I was stunned at the amount of new footage at the official "Bourne Ultimatum" website, which they have just updated (http://www.thebourneultimatum.com/). Ignore the beginning trailer and enter the site and you are treated to about 4-5 minutes of new material. Lots more of Bourne, lots of Nicky -Bourne asks "Why are you helping me?" -- Longer and more fight scenes. Really, why are you reading this? If you're a Bourne fan, don't wait!
    -- As a complete aside, I bought the "Bourne Betrayal". It was so bad that I had a hard time reading it. The worst aspect was that the story is supposed to be a continuation of the original Robert Ludlum books, but the story is set in the present day. Fine - except that Bourne would be in his sixties since, in the books, his adventures started (approximately) during the Vietnam war. let's be generous and say it was the early seventies. That was THIRTY FIVE YEARS AGO. Even if David Webb was in his 20's, he'd be in his late 50s. And no way was the "hero" of this new book that old. Also, his children in this book are still little kids - uh, shouldn't they be in their 30s? If the author had re-invented or re-started the series, as they did in the movies, I wouldn't have been as critical of the book. And the Bourne in Ludlum's books is not a nice man. A good man, but not a nice one - if the author had sustituted the name of "John Smith" for "Bourne" no one would have taken this generic character for Jason Bourne. I won't give away major plot points that also annoyed me, but frankly, Bourne and the other CIA agents are so damn dumb, I winced when I was reading some of the scenes. If the characters are supposed to be inept, that's fine, but these characters are supposed to be smart. I have read MUCH better fan fiction!

    Thank you for letting me blow off some steam. I actually like Eric Van Lustbader's other books. Thanks too for continuing to update this page with all the great picutres and info. Loved the ones here! Take care, Cheryl

    Re: Minutes of new "Bourne Ultimatum" on official site

    Thanks for the updates Cheryl - will check out the site ASAP.

    The new promotion with Google has been formally announced, and Variety's just run a story on major promotional initiatives with key sponsors - Ultimatum's going to get a big push internationally.
