Behind the Candelabra, Elysium

  • A 'making of' special for Behind the Candelabra will air Friday 3 May at 9pm - a preview is here, with a longer clip available here. A photo from the set is available here.

  • A new photo from Elysium is available at Oh No They Didn't. A new interview with Matt from Cancun talking about Elysium is at (excerpt below), with another interview at La Stampa.

    Damon said working in the Mexican rubbish tip made for "the toughest two weeks of shooting I’ve ever had”, but that the end result was worth it.

    "We knew that these two weeks were coming and Neill just said, ‘Look, I know I can do a lot with a green screen … but I’ve never seen a giant set-piece in a sci-fi film in a setting like that’.

    "Everybody on the crew recognized that it was a really good idea and it was going to be worth it. It’s really one of the best sequences in the movie and I’m really proud of it.”

  • Matt has returned to Berlin to continue filming Monuments Men.
