What about Matt Damon in the Supporting Category for True Grit!? So subdued and relaxed yet something pretty surprising happened — I forgot I was watching Matt Damon. He became a pretty integral part of the film’s tone. Could it have worked without him? Yes. But he played the part EXACTLY the way it needed to be — not too over-the-top, not too quirky. And I know it’s not a remake, but if it’s any compensation, he outclassed Glen Campbell in every way (see: True Grit, 1969) —Robert

A new featurette has been released, it’s called “Fate vs. Free Will”, it tells us a bit about the movie and the cast talks about it aswell. Below is the video and screen caps are in the gallery.
On the day I am due to interview the British screenwriter Peter Morgan, the eyes of the world are turned to Zurich to find out which countries will be selected by Fifa to host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
As we all now know, England’s bid to host the former tournament was doomed to failure – a situation one might imagine would appeal to this award-winning author.
Morgan, after all, is a man who – in such films as The Deal, The Queen, Frost/Nixon and The Last King of Scotland – has shown an affinity for turning the likes of Tony Blair, David Frost, Richard Nixon and Idi Amin into compelling protagonists.
He is no stranger to the beautiful game either, having brought football manager Brian Clough back to life in 2009 film The Damned United.
Matt next movie to be release is “The Adjustment Bureau“, starring along with Emily Blunt. The movie is set to be released on March 4th.
