DVD releases
  • Information about the cinema and DVD release for the Project Greenlight film Feast is here, and details about the HD DVD release version of Syriana is here:

    Set against the extensive global oil industry network, "Syriana" unfolds a complex series of interconnecting stories that challenge the morality and integrity of all those involved. The "Syriana" HD DVD will contain two exclusive featurettes, "Weaving Reality Into Drama" and "A Conversation with Matt Damon."

  • Site note: I will be travelling for the next week and will only have infrequent access to the Internet. Could any readers with news or information (and yes, baby news), please post any text, links or photos to the comments section. I will then update the site when I can. Thank you.

    Oooh, a conversation with Matt. Sounds like a very cool DVD extra.

    Enjoy travelling next week!

    The standard Syriana DVD (non-HD) has a "conversation with George", so I suppose the HD one evens it up.

    Travelling is very badly timed! (Currently at Sydney airport...)

    Yep I totally agree about the badly timed travelling. [ot]And I suppose you were unable to watch the Socceroos beat Japan 3-1, if you're into soccer[/ot].

    Here's an article from the Sydney Morning Herald via AFP:

    Hollywood actor Matt Damon and his wife welcomed a baby daughter, Isabella, to the world over the weekend.

    Publicist Jennifer Allen said that Damon's wife Luciana Bozman, who is from Argentina, gave birth to a baby girl.

    Damon's brother Kyle earlier spoke to People magazine.

    "The baby is here. Isabella arrived [on Sunday]," the magazine quoted him in its online edition as saying.

    The couple met in 2003 in Miami, where Bozman was working as a waitress and where Damon was filming the movie Stuck on You.

    Damon, 35, shared a screen writing Oscar with his friend Ben Affleck for the movie Good Will Hunting in 1998.

    The baby is the first for Damon, 35. His wife has a daughter, Alexia, 7, from a previous marriage.

    Re: It's a Girl!

    A healthy little girl (as we all knew), 7lbs, 7oz, and born on a Monday, which I can never remember whether that means she's 'full or grace' or 'fair of face,' but either way, Isabella's a lucky little girl.

    And, I just have to let out a big "Awwwwww" for this:

    >As for getting parenting tips from his best friend – and fellow new dad – >Ben Affleck, Damon told PEOPLE last month, "I'm sure I'll be asking him >for plenty of diaper advice."

    Congratulations Matt and Lucy!

    Oh, ...let me correct myself. It was a *Sunday* birth and I never remember the old adage for that one! :D

    Re: It's a Girl!

    Sunday's child is full of grace,
    Monday's child is fair of face;
    Tuesday's child loves to race,
    Wednesday's child is kind of heart;
    Thursday's child is very smart,
    Friday's child will never part;
    Saturday's child is good of heart.

    Finally, news about 'Feast.' A theatrical release immediately followed a dvd release? Sounds good to me! The poster is great too, even if it's just a temporary. Hopefully the film will be successful enough to help bring about a fourth season of PG.

    I haven't rented the regular Syriana DVD, but knowing this new one has a special featurette with Matt, I'll rent that one as soon as it hits the stands!

    baby Isabella

    Matt and Lucy had their baby yesterday. Here is the article from People Magazine.


    http://people.aol.com/people/articles/0,19736,1194422,00.html

    Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana Bozan, have welcomed a baby girl named Isabella, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.

    "The baby is here. Isabella arrived yesterday," Damon's brother Kyle told PEOPLE on Monday. The baby weighed in at 7 lbs., 7 oz.

    "Mother and Isabella are doing fine," Damon's rep Jennifer Allen, confirmed to PEOPLE. "The family is very happy and everyone's healthy."

    This is the first child for the couple. Bozan also has a daughter, Alexia, from a previous marriage.

    "He's a terrific uncle and he's going to be a wonderful father," Kyle said of his brother, Matt. "Thankfully, Lucy has some experience, so that will help. Alexia is a terrific girl. They're all really close, they'll be an intimate family."

    Late last year, Damon said at a press conference that he "longed for" fatherhood. "But I've got to learn how to be a good disciplinarian," he said, "'cause I'm a professional uncle right now."

    As for getting parenting tips from his best friend – and fellow new dad – Ben Affleck, Damon told PEOPLE last month, "I'm sure I'll be asking him for plenty of diaper advice."

    Damon and Bozan, who met in Miami Beach in 2003 while he was filming Stuck on You, married in December in a surprise ceremony at Manhattan's City Hall.

    "They were thrilled," said New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who was one of the few to attend the private nuptials.

    It was the first marriage for Damon, 35, and the second for Bozan, 30, a bartender turned interior designer.

    "I like Lucy a lot. They make a fantastic couple," Damon's brother Kyle told PEOPLE at the time.

    Next up for Damon: He'll reprise his role as Linus Caldwell in Ocean's 13. Production is scheduled to start in July for a summer 2007 release.

    Re: baby Isabella

    I like this "surprise ceremony" thing. I guess they're surprised that a single father-to-be would do the right thing and marry his child's mother pre-birth, unlike Casey, Brad, and TomKat.

    Whatever. I'm so tired of this media/paparazzi-driven Hollywood baby frenzy.

    It's a Girl for Actor Matt Damon and Wife

    Just got this from MSN.com's entertainment website:

    It's a Girl for Actor Matt Damon and Wife
    Jun 12, 11:10 AM EST


    The Associated Press

    "Good Will Hunting" Oscar winner Matt Damon and his wife are parents of a girl, their first child.

    Damon's wife Luciana gave birth in a Miami hospital on Sunday to Isabella, the actor's publicist Jennifer Allen said. No other details were released.

    "Mother and baby — everyone — is wonderful, fine," Allen said here Monday.

    The couple married Dec. 9 in New York City during a private ceremony attended by the bride's then-7-year-old daughter from a previous marriage. It was the first marriage for Damon, 35.

    Damon and friend Ben Affleck, both from Cambridge, Mass., won a best screenwriting Oscar for 1997's "Good Will Hunting," set in the Boston area.

    Damon's movie credits also include "Saving Private Ryan," "The Talented Mr. Ripley," "Ocean's Eleven" and "Syriana."

    I feel bad for Felicity. So sad she had to travel now.

    Thanks :-) I guessed the baby would arrive the day after I left!
    From: (Anonymous) Date: June 13th, 2006 11:19 am (UTC) (Link)
    Yes. The moment I read the headline I was like "Oh shit(sorry), Felicity missed it.......she must be cursing her badly timed travel......"

    Baby News

    Wonderful news about the baby. They must be delighted.

    I think it's a pity he doesn't visit the site, I think he would be pleased with all the positive things that are said about him. He's probably way too busy anyway.

    But if I were famous I couldn't resist the temptation to put my name into google and see what comes up every now and again.
