Hollywood superstar and Oscar winner Matt Damon may be gearing up for a visit to India. Sources say Damon could be in Mumbai next week for humanitarian work. Whether Damon indeed arrives in Mumbai will be confirmed on Monday, the sources added.
If the actor is in the city next week, he will also use the opportunity to promote his latest film Elysium, which is scheduled to be released on September 27. The actor, who had earlier visited India in 2009, has been approached for an NGO programme.
Third place was a tight race, but according to estimates, it went to Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi action flick Elysium (Sony), starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, which dropped 54% from its first place opening weekend and is just slightly ahead of another new movie with $13.6 million and $55.9 million grossed so far.
Elysium opened in 20 new territories this weekend and added another $22 million overseas to bring its international total to $37.7 million and worldwide total to $93.6 million. It opened in 8 Western European markets including France, Germany, Holland, Belgium and Switzerland, all where it opened better than both Blomkamp's previous film District 9 and Pacific Rim, according to Sony. It also debuted at #1 in Australia with $3.2 million, 64% better than District 9.
