Adjustment Bureau trailer
  • The trailer for The Adjustment Bureau will be previewed on Entertainment Tonight's show on Wednesday. Brief clips were also shown on Tuesday's show.

  • Two photos of Matt and Gia in New York are at PopSugar.

  • Jimmy Kimmel and Don Cheadle joked about Matt's Cinematheque award on Monday's Kimmel show. The full clip is available on YouTube. A press release about the Cinematheque event, to air on 27 May, is here.

  • A mention of Matt's upcoming charity event in Greenwich is here. Matt will also appear at a Boston charity event next year.

  • Director Doug Liman discussed on his blog the dinner for Earth Made of Glass (the Rwanda documentary). Matt had previously met President Kagame of Rwanda in Rwanda on behalf of onexone, and the connection was not through Ben Affleck.

    Liman: Recently I was invited to dinner with President Kagame of Rwanda. He is in town in NY for the United Nations, and was attending a Tribeca Film Festival screening of a documentary set in Rwanda.

    I saw Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Bozan Barroso there. Matt and I were talking with President Kagame and I started to tell Matt Kagame’s story though it turned out Matt already knew it because I guess Ben Affleck is obsessed with it as well. John Krasinski was there and he and Matt and some of their friends shut the place down.

    Re: The Adjustment Bureau

    I'm glad it's a different version of the trailer loganx2.

    Here's a YouTube version of the trailer:

    Don't know a UK release date yet - the IMDB date is wrong.

    Re: The Adjustment Bureau

    The UK GQ site claims the release date is 17 September, but another date listed was 30 September.

    That looks great... can't wait!

    The 'look' of the film is nice and classy, and they obviously have great chemistry. Hoping for the best.

    30 Rock tonight

    NBC's Twitter is claiming Matt is on 30 Rock tonight - perhaps they're introducing his character:

    @nbc30rock: Tonight’s ep is called Emmanuelle Goes to Dinosaur Land, features Cerie’s wedding and guest stars Matt Damon as a pilot.

    Update: Matt wasn't in the episode but a promo after the show. Will post a link ASAP.

    Re: 30 Rock tonight

    Dave Letterman and Alec Baldwin on Letterman's Thursday show teased Matt's appearance on 30 Rock. Here's part of the dialogue:

    Dave: Would you say he's more of an actor or a movie star?
    Alec: That's putting me in a terrible position. He's a great actor and a great movie star... His name rhymes with Rat Lamon.
    Dave: This is good, this is good because Rat is a very nice guy. Have you spent any time with him?
    Alec: He's a great guy. Love Rat.
    Dave: Tremendous guy.

    Adjustment Bureau Trailer

    This trailer looks fantastic - I can't wait to see this movie. Matt looks so hot!! Do you know when it will be released in Australia?

    Photos of Matt and Gia

    The photos in Popsugar of Matt and Gia are cute but I wish the papparazzi would leave him alone when he's with his children. He is just trying to be a normal Dad and I think he does not really want his children in the public spotlight.

    Re: Photos of Matt and Gia

    Interesting to note that PopSugar was the only site that carried the photos - they are not available anywhere else. There must not be a lot of interest for any photos of him - with or without family members.

    And it's not like he's hiding in NY - he's sighted just about every day with his family walking around.

    Comingsoon is reporting that Contagion will be in 3D!

    Re: Contagion

    I know and I don't understand why. To make the needles look bigger or the symptoms look scarier? Why just inflate the ticket price for no logical reason, except to jump on a fad?

    Similar comments at The Playlist, which also comments that Liberace now looks to start in May 2011. (Matt has to play a 20 year old and they keep pushing it back??)

    30 Rock

    Didn't know if you'd been able to find a clip of the 30 Rock promo, so here's a recap.

    Matt (in pilot's uniform) walks into what looks like a wedding reception.

    Liz (Fey) leaps a table in a single bound to meet him at the door (funny)and asks, "How did you get past security?"

    Matt says, "If you walk fast wearing a pilot's uniform you can go pretty much anywhere. I'm been on the top floor of the White House while the Obamas were sleeping."

    And then there's a clip of Matt dancing exuberantly with his pilot's hat on backwards. Short, cute.

    Re: 30 Rock

    Thanks Paula - I can't find the promo online anywhere yet.

    According to actress Elizabeth Banks, Matt shot his scenes with Tina Fey solo (and after the official season wrap) as he was unavailable on the day. They used a double for his scenes with everybody else, and shot the double from the back (as can be seen on all the stills).

    Matt's currently in Austin.

    Another possible movie for Matt..the man needs to slow down.

    From: (Anonymous) Date: May 15th, 2010 10:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
    why does he need to slow done? He is only filming 1 film this year and doing other events that some of which he is usually involved in anyway - where is the problem, he is working like everyone else?
    loganx2 From: loganx2 Date: May 15th, 2010 10:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
    He is in 4 movies this year. 30rock and the award show. That's A LOT!! Im worried people will get tired of him..it's possible. It doesnt matter how good the movies are, people will get tired of him.

    We bought a zoo

    Matt received the offer for that film months ago, and I'm surprised it's taken so long for press to pick up on it.

    The timing seems wrong - he can't really start in September when the baby's due Sept/Oct and he has a film to promote. And I'm not sure he would film in the UK.

    But Matt was attached to Elizabethtown (Crowe's previous film) before it went to Orlando Bloom and he really wanted to work with Crowe.

    If Liberace doesn't start until May 2011 he's got plenty of time to do another film, and I doubt the Kennedy project would get financing now. At least this would have commercial prospects.
    From: (Anonymous) Date: May 15th, 2010 11:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
    I dont agree, people wont tire of him just cause he has 4 films out and a couple of tv gigs, thats just nonsence.

    I can go and see a film not realy caring who's actually in it, its the story thats caught my attention. People will see what they want to see, he's a brilliant actor and works hard. I went to see GreenZone and want to see The Adjustment Bureau at the cinema, didnt go to see Invictus at the cinema only because i wasnt sure at the time if this was the type of film i wanted to see but regret that know and will have to make do with dvd.
    From: (Anonymous) Date: May 17th, 2010 10:34 am (UTC) (Link)
    I can't believe anyone could tire of seeing Matt Damon in a movie or TV show - he is such a classy, versatile actor. I can't wait for The Adjustment Bureau to be released. Does anyone know when Invictus and Green Zone will be released on DVD in Australia?
    mattdamoncolumn From: mattdamoncolumn Date: May 17th, 2010 12:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
    I'm in Australia and I don't buy any movies from here - movies from the US come out earlier and have more features (and are often even cheaper including postage).

    Sorry, can't find DVD release dates for either of them on the Video Ezy or Urban Cinefile sites.
