Oklahoma City benefit
  • The next stage of the Bourne Ultimatum promotional tour has been announced - Oklahoma City. Details here:

    Oklahomans can rub elbows with Hollywood star Matt Damon — and benefit a charitable cause — with the July 31 premiere of "The Bourne Ultimatum” in Oklahoma City.

    Tickets are on sale for the premiere, at which Damon and executive producer Frank Marshall will introduce the latest adventure in the popular spy thriller "Bourne” series at 7:30 p.m. July 31 at the Harkins Bricktown Theaters in Oklahoma City. The screening is to be shown simultaneously on three screens.

    Tickets are $150 each, and proceeds will benefit The Children's Center in Bethany, a nonprofit hospital serving children with medical and physical disabilities.

    "'The Bourne Supremacy' was the first premiere that [Marshall] did here, and since then he's done ‘Eight Below' and now he's doing ‘The Bourne Ultimatum,'" said Tiffany Webb, communications and marketing coordinator for The Children's Center.

    "He just really loves The Children's Center and wanted to get involved,” Webb said. "So, he's bringing Matt Damon, who will actually be in Oklahoma City at the premiere, welcoming guests.”

    In 2004, when Damon and Marshall brought a benefit premiere of "The Bourne Supremacy” to Oklahoma City, an estimated $100,000 was raised for The Children's Center.

  • Tickets are sold out for the Boise event, but there's still a chance to get there via a competition.

  • More quotes from the Esquire interview are available here.

  • From an interview with actress Allison Janney at the Sunday Herald:

    But film has kept her busy. She has small parts in two movies due out later this year: Juno, a comedy, and Margaret, starring Anna Paquin and Matt Damon. Janney is clearly most excited by the latter, a New York-set drama about an idealistic young woman who turns upon her friends. It's written by Kenneth Lonergan, who wrote the Oscar-nominated You Can Count On Me.

    "It's an incredible film. It took me to places I've never been before, I think it is going to make people sit up. I think it is the best thing I've ever done."

    ET showed electronic press kit footage from Bourne Ultimatum on Monday's show (mostly the behind the scenes look on the official site).

    On Tuesday's show they've promoted a special look at the making of the 'jump through the window' scene.

    I'm glad that Matt is appearing on Jay Leno this time as we actually get his show over in the UK (a day late). Though I prefer Letterman Matt has been on there rather a lot lately.

    I love the footage on the Ultimatum official site - there is a brief snippet of him walking by our local Costcutter and Chicken Nugget shop next to Waterloo.

    Re: Toronto premiere of Bourne?

    It certainly hasn't been announced yet, and I will obviously publish the dates and details if/when it happens.

    He'll definitely in Toronto for the Film Festival to promote Running the Sahara and the OneXOne event in September.
