Great news about Downsizing:
The film, directed by Alexander Payne, will be released by Paramount in December.
Alexander Payne’s Downsizing has been selected to open the Venice Film Festival, which runs from Aug. 30 to Sept. 9.
The satire, written by Payne and his frequent collaborator Jim Taylor, stars Matt Damon as a man who decides to shrink himself in order to find a better life. The cast also includes Kristen Wiig, Christoph Waltz, Laura Dern and Jason Sudeikis.
The Venice berth is a first for Payne, whose films have played Cannes, Telluride, Toronto and Sundance, but not the Italian fest, where Downsizing’s opening-night slot should position it for high-profile awards-season bid.
Paramount plans to release the film Dec. 22. The studio recently showed off footage from the film at the annual CineEurope international exhibitors convention in Barcelona.
On Friday, Matt joined John Krasinski, along with Emily Blunt, Ben Affleck, Margo Martindale, Daveed Diggs, Tom McCarthy and Keegan Michael-Key for a live read of Good Will Hunting. Here are photos from the event:
Matt Damon is at the New York Comic Con today promoting The Great Wall, and a new trailer has been released:
During the Toronto International Film Festival, Matt attended the Manchester By The Sea Premiere, which he has produced. Here are some photos:
Last week, Matt returned to China and along with him, his man bun returned, which I assume was for The Great Wall reshoots. While there, Matt and Alicia Vikander stopped to promote Jason Bourne, here are photos from the Premiere and Press Conference.
Hello everyone! I’m very behind on updating the site, so I’m catching up with all the Jason Bourne promotion tour photos (in the previews), plus some older events that are listed below.
Water.org work is already a good enough reason to donate, but now they’ve joined forces with Omaze.com and they’re giving you an even better reason to donate: a chance to fly to Las Vegas and meet Matt Damon at the Jason Bourne premiere.
You don’t need a good reason to skip town to Vegas, but you might need a good excuse. Here’s the story: Matt Damon is flying you and a friend to Vegas to join him for the world premiere of Jason Bourne. Believable? Hardly. But luckily, you’ll have the photos with Matt to prove it: riding to the premiere in a limo together, walking the red carpet, even kicking back with a beer at the VIP after party! And while this might break the cardinal rule of “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas”, we think the greatest night of your life is a fair exception. Flights and hotel included.
You’ll be helping:
