Promised Land, various
  • Promised Land will have a background issue of gas fracking, as discussed at the Huffington Post.

  • There's a Promised Land extras casting call in Pittsburgh today (Saturday) - details here. Details of the characters in the film, and Hal Holbrook's probable casting, are at The Playlist.

  • Matt, Gary White and water.org will be honored by the World Policy Institute at an event in New York on 3 May.

  • The We Bought A Zoo DVD has been released. A clip from one of the DVD extras is at The Uncool. There was a new interview with Colin Ford at J-14, including:

    J-14: That sounds amazing! But did anything ever go wrong with all of the crazy animals running around all over the set?

    Colin: In the movie, there's one scene where I accidentally let snakes loose and they go everywhere. During one of the takes, Matt's daughter, Alexia, hopped in the crate and when I went to let the snakes out, she jumped out and scared me. It was the scariest thing ever! It was even scarier then the snakes!

  • Matt attended a Bruce Springsteen concert at Madison Square Garden on Friday with Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.

    Only pic I found was the following

    Meeting Matt Damon #winning instagr.am/p/JGzpo6guYs/

    Don't know if it was before or after the concert but the tweeter is not mentioning anything about the concert so I'm guessing she didnt attend. Maybe some more pics will pop up later. (I imagine Lucy was there as she's never mentioned).

    Leaving concert photos

    Not great photos and you can't see Lucy, but two pics of Matt leaving the stadium around fans:

    Possible sighting of Matt at the concert - climbing the stairs at the point in 'Dancing in the dark' where Bruce calls his mother on stage.

    RanDom stuff

    Unfortunately haven't be able to find any pics from springsteen concert. I was hoping a pic would surface of him at the concert but no such luck. That video you posted above I think is the best were going to get. By the way good eye on that.

    I think Matt went to Miami for the holiday weekend. He was sighted back in new York on Monday.

    Re: Random stuff

    I don't know about Miami, but John Krasinski has been in Pittsburgh for the past two days, with no sightings of Matt (that I've seen).

    In Pittsburgh?

    John Krasinski seems to have been in Pittsburgh for a few days but this is the first comment that Matt has been there too (but no link to photos and no other references that I've seen):

    Just saw someone's photos of Matt Damon and John Krashinski rehearsing in Avonmore!

    We Bought A Zoo DVD, Elysium, various

    Just a warning that the Zoo Region 1 DVD will not play on Australian Blu-Ray players. The main disc is Blu-ray and will not play, but the second disc (commentary track and animals feature) is not blu-ray and will play on a multi-region player. I need to buy another Blu-ray player.

    Elysium re-shoots update:
    OLTV: Matt Damon and Jody Foster's SyFy feature #Elysium back to Vancouver for re-shoots May 1, 2012 until they are done

    On IMDB, someone is writing that the additional shooting for Elysium was always planned, and that it is a flashback or flashforward scene (Matt won't have to go bald again).

    Various sightings of Matt around Pittsburgh in recent days.

    Re: We Bought A Zoo DVD, Elysium, various

    I've seen a couple of sightings of John & Matt in Pittsburgh. I did see a sighting of John in NYC on Monday ( I imagine that matt was back in ny for the weekend?) but they are back in Pittsburgh.

    I see the Liberace film has been pushed back to July. I wonder how long Elysium filming will take?

    We bought a zoo extras + Promised Land pic

    The extras on the We Bought A Zoo Blu-ray are amazingly detailed and long. Alexia's in the gag reel, deleted scenes and behind the scenes footage (some really sweet shots with Matt). (I know from other footage that Lucy and the girls are on the set at certain points but they aren't photographed here.) Highlights including Scarlett breaking a take because she's laughing about Matt's awful hair, Matt speaking Spanish, Matt's multiple attempts at a British accent etc.

    It does seem to have been a remarkably happy set, cultivated by the good humor of Cameron Crowe, Matt, cast and crew and filming at the ranch. This is supported by all reports of crew during filming that I saw (very long days, cool weather but an energising set.)

    In the additional/deleted scenes there are some funny and sweet scenes (with most of the funny coming through Thomas Haden Church who has some great lines). In the commentary track Crowe says the first cut was three and a half hours, and you see a lot more of the character development in these extra scenes.

    For me, the Blu-ray is definitely worth viewing if you can access it.

    Here's the first photo I've seen of location shoots/prep from Promised Land with John and Gus:

    Re: We bought a zoo extras + Promised Land pic

    It sounds like the extras are fantastic. Unfortunately I do not have a bluray player. Maybe some of it makes it onto YouTube.

    I saw that pic yesterday and did not realize that John & Gus were in the pic. Hoping Matt & Lucy do show up for emilys premiere tonight. Haven't seen any sightings today of Matt or John.

    Re: Benefit

    Isn't this the event he usually hosts with deniro? I want to say I seen something for this from last year where Bruce springsteen was the musical guest. And Lucy and deniros wife grace are named as hosts too.
