    Matt Baiamonte

    Matt Baiamonte tells about his life. Very interestingly. At the end it is written how he has got acquainted with Matt.

    Box office

    And where in this list $10 million in the U.K?

    Re: Box office

    The numbers may not have come in yet for the UK, or they are just missing.

    The reviews for Suicide Squad are really poor, but it probably doesn't matter.

    As tipped on Jeffrey Wells' page, Bourne is likely to outperform previous films internationally, but be well below the Ultimatum total in the US/Canada. Which is fine.

    More interviews I had missed with some new quotes - UK press tour:


    In fact, he's more polite gent than Hollywood ego, escorting me in and out of the hotel room where we meet for the interview, and he's happy to talk about everything and anything - including the snatched night out he and Luciana had at Mayfair's swanky Sexy Fish restaurant.

    "I flew in from Korea and she flew in, we left the kids with their grandparents and had dinner. We try where we can [to have date nights]," he says. "We make an effort."


    Do they like having Bourne back around the house?

    “It definitely makes my wife happy,” he laughs. “But my oldest daughter – it upsets her – because she can’t call me Matty Fatty. Which is my nickname.”

    He juts out his belly and pats it with no little pride: “But look. Matty Fatty is back.”

    Training routine

    Long interview with Jason Walsh and Matt Baiamonte which also mentions Matt's chef Ryan Toal:


    As it turns out, Walsh and Baiamonte weren't Damon's only "workout buddies" on hand. "His wife, who was in really good shape, they would go on runs together," Walsh says. "She was in amazing shape, and did a lot of the workouts. When your spouse is there to support you… that's a great support system to have."

    More Great Wall scandal. I apologize for bringing up the Great Wall and it's so called "controversy."

    Very funny. Especially as Matt is in China in less than two weeks.

    Re: Norway

    Not sure, but this is, at an airport in Bodo, Norway:


    What a cool area to be filming in. I was briefly in Norway around this time last year but not as far north as the filming locations.

    Why haven't more of you commented in the JASON BOURNE thread (previous thread) about the movie???
    Haven't you all gone to see it yet?
