  • The trailer for The Adjustment Bureau is available at the official site. Here's the Washington Post's take on the trailer and Matt's upcoming appearance on 30 Rock:

    This week: We're loving Matt Damon. This week he appeared in the new trailer for his upcoming movie "The Adjustment Bureau," a film that appears to be ripe with paranoia and freaky guys wearing fedoras. (And we mean that in a really good way.) On May 20, he'll ditch the jaunty hats and don a pilot's uniform to play the (potential) man of Liz Lemon's dreams in the season finale of "30 Rock." Jason Bourne, you're just so darn versatile.

  • The documentary by Charles Ferguson that Matt narrated about the financial crisis, Inside Job, has screened at Cannes to very strong reviews, including: the Hollywood Reporter, Hollywood Elsewhere and the Boston Globe. New York Magazine claims that Matt's involvement appears to be personally motivated.

    But the most effective presence may be the trusted voice of all-American actor Matt Damon, who narrates the furious takedown of the financial services and the government. It's a fairly bold move by the actor.

  • The Playlist reports that Matt has been offered a role in an upcoming Cameron Crowe project, We Bought A Zoo.

    As reported before, Cameron Crowe is now seemingly confirmed to direct the adaptation of Benjamin Mee's autobiographical "We Bought A Zoo" with offers out to Ben Stiller and Matt Damon, according to the latest issue of Production Weekly (the issue itself not online) which has all kinds of little tibits of details on the film.

    In what will be Crowe' first film since 2005's "Elizabethtown," Mee's story follows the English author as he uproots his family into the countryside on a property complete with a dwindling zoo, home to over 200 exotic animals. There, however, the family is struck with the tragic cancer battle of the wife and mother whose unfortunate passing going onto inspire the family to rebuild of the zoo, with their relationship to the animals growing into one that ultimately heals the family's wounds and allows them to move forward.

  • Steven Soderbergh's Liberace project appears to have been re-scheduled until May 2011, according to Rope of Silicon's twitter following an interview with Michael Douglas.

  • Contagion will be released in 3D on 21 October 2011.
