    "The toast"

    The internet needs to make that photo the meme for "friendship goals".

    I can't imagine how it must have felt, nearly 20 years on, after all their success and life changes, to return to the script that started it all for them. That photo makes me so emotional! I'm tearing up, ugh. Those Boston boys, after all these years still do it to me ... Argh, I can't even.

    Re: "The toast"

    The friendship endures: that makes me feel warm and grateful to them for weathering the many storms. Shows it can be done. And, of course, GWH is a brilliant achievement--you ask people about how they felt about that film, and many get a glisten in their eyes. It's a wonderful script further enhanced by clearly deeply felt performances. And you can't think of it without remembering Robin. It has become iconic. I guess I'm revealing how much that film and the friendship of these two guys have affected me as well. The whole thing is a monument to art and love.

    NYCC interview

    Interesting interview from NYCC with some new info about the film. Includes minor spoiler.


    ILM is doing the FX, which can only be a good thing.

    Re: NYCC interview

    Because the SFX are being criticized on what is seen in the trailers.

    Two nice moments with Casey. One from TIFF: https://www.instagram.com/p/BKWl6T8D8TY/ You can see how much affection Matt has for him.

    Matt has provided quotes for Pedro Pascal's first ever cover interview at The Rake:


    "Pedro Pascal is the quintessential American story, and that's why we don't build walls." Matt Damon talks to The Rake about our cover star, Mr Pedro Pascal, in our latest issue on newsstands now.

    Excerpt of interview via https://likeshop.me/therakeonline but does not have any quotes from Matt or any references to Great Wall (some good photos though).

    New old pics

    I have found a photo of which at us wasn't.
    " Matt Damon with wife Luciana Barroso while shopping for sporting goods, checking out snowboards in Los Angeles."
    There are still other photos but on them watermarks.

    Re: New old pics

    I saw a few photos and they look good but I get warnings for malware on the site and it is blocked.

    The photos are also at this site, from 8 March.

    Watching Matt Damon's dad take a photo of his son on the screen as Matt talks about Ridley is one of the cutest moments of the night.
