    So Lucy not in Canada? What a pity.

    Re: Baseball

    Probably not. Matt was in LA a few days ago and she will probably go to the graduation speech in Boston on 3 June.

    Re: Baseball

    The tall guy in the white shirt with them is James van der Beek, who has joined the cast.


    A post from James on his instagram confirming the role:

    vanderjames Little sneak peek of what I'm working on... PSYCHED to get to work with one of my all-time favorite directors, if only for a few days. If you've never seen Sideways, Nebraska, Election, or The Descendants, treat yourself! Very human, often funny films, deceptively simple on the surface, but deeply complex, engaging, and masterfully told. #AlexanderPayne

    And his post from the baseball game:

    There's a photo of Lucy leaving her gym in West Hollywood, a couple of days ago.
    So, she's in LA.

    Total Film

    Matt on the cover of the UK's Total Film magazine:


    (I like nothing about the sound/promotion of this film.)

    RE: Total Film

    I'm sorry but your comment baffles me. What exactly is it that you don't like about the promotion of this film? Are you even a matt damon fan?

    It's marketed the same way every major studio blockbuster is marketed and promoted. There are teasers, trailers and magazine covers of the film in the lead up to its release. The only possibly negative thing I found was that they took too long to release the first trailer but other than that everything is fine.

    Re: Total Film

    I run this site, I'm a fan. I don't think selling this movie as the biggest, baddest and loudest ever is what certain fans of the series are looking for. It just feels like they have all sold out and the movie is a carbon copy of everything we have seen before with no originality (I know that's a standard criticism of the series anyway, but this looks to be overtly pandering to a modern no-brains audience). Hoping to be wrong.

    Re: Total Film

    With all due respect, I see it differently. What you call pandering, I call reassuring the fans that, yes, this has some of the same elements they know and love. There needs to be big car chases, fights, dramatic escapes, and, yes, someone recognizing Jason. Meanwhile, to me, the hints they've dropped about the storyline are exciting. Bourne still struggling with the people he killed and finding no peace. Bourne with Nicky--will we find out about a past relationship? Bourne recognizing that Treadstone lied to him. Bourne asking to talk to the CIA guy and then actually sitting with him. The CIA guy (Tommy Lee Jones) attempting to convince him that he's done good. The suggestion that Bourne is needed now more than ever before. And, most significantly, the CIA guy telling Jason that he'll never find peace until he accepts who he is. If that leads to Jason embracing his name and his role, it's the echo back to the end of Identity when he said "I'm no longer Jason Bourne" and would explain the film's title. And that? It could be a great setup for future movies! So me? I'm thrilled!

    RE: Total Film

    I think what fans of the Bourne series enjoy is that it has been an original, intelligent, thought provoking thriller. And nothing in the marketing so far says that's what this is.

    I'm hoping for the best but when they recycled the "It's Jason Bourne!" line and seems to be recycling the same characters with different actors it made it seem like they had no new ideas.

    You won't find any bigger Damon fans than here, but we're a bit anxious. It's normal to have jitters before one of Matt's big movies opens. We all want it to succeed on every level.

    Re: Total Film

    Well said Paula. There's a new Bourne promo today:

    Tune in to tonight's action-packed premiere of @NBCNinjaWarrior at 8/7c to get a special sneak peek of #JasonBourne.

    Re: Total Film

    Of course they would recycle the "It's Jason Bourne" line and put it in the trailer. I think the trailer should not give too much away anyways. If Damon didn't wanna do the fourth movie back in 2012 and he decided to do it now, he must have a pretty good reason. I trust him and Greengrass.
