Here’s more proof that corporate-dominated dystopias are the new zombies. Syfy has greenlit a new show being produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. And Incorporated is set in a near future where corporations hold all the power. Which, to be fair, doesn’t sound that much different than the world we live in.
Kevin Smith’s Dogma is a star-studded, religious themed, highly offensive, violent and gross R-rated road trip comedy about a descendant of Jesus Christ saving the world from two fallen angels. That madcap collection of ideas worked on me as a teenager. Now, not so much.
It goes without saying that the next Bourne movie will take place after the last ones. At the end of 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum, Jason Bourne went off the grid with his enemies assuming him dead. In 2016, he’ll be back, and Matt Damon recently talked about what’s happened in between.
Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Star Talk returns to the National Geographic Channel next Sunday, October 25. We caught up with Dr. Tyson to discuss the premiere, the scientific ubiquity of Seth MacFarlane and NASA’s plans for Matt Damon.
We’ve all heard and seen the stories: some actors don’t make the cut for a film or passed on a role that later exploded. It got me thinking: what would have been different in a film if you replaced the lead actor with someone who *probably* auditioned for it?
When it comes to edge-of-your-seat suspense, The Martian is in a class of its own. Ridley Scott’s new movie, in theaters today, is a top-notch survival thriller, full of twists and turns that’ll make you catch your breath. It’s the most exciting movie in ages. Plus it’ll make you want to be an astronaut when you grow…
For each mission, NASA does a considerable amount of work publicizing their efforts to bring awareness of their mission to the general public. The same would be true for a manned Mars Mission, as the official Mission Guide for The Martian demonstrates.
Last night was the fourth season premiere of HBO’s Project Greenlight—a Matt Damon and Ben Affleck passion project where they give first time filmmakers the chance to make a movie. It also provided a platform for Matt Damon to deliver a masterclass in whitesplaining—a whitesplaining sermon, if you will.
After a film away, Matt Damon is back playing Jason Bourne, and here’s the gritty photo to prove it. Producer Frank Marshall tweeted the first image from the film’s set and it’s pretty obvious this is a different Bourne movie.
A new teaser for The Martian has hit the web, and in it, Matt Damon’s Mark Watney lists off all the ways that the Red Planet can kill him: suffocation, implosion, starvation, etc.
In some alternate universe, Pixar’s Wall*E was about a small robot stranded on an uninhabited Earth, voiced by Matt Damon. Someone’s mashed up the trailer for The Martian with the animated flick, and it works out pretty nicely!
The Bourne movies are one of the best spy-fi franchises out there, and the next entry returns with the best pieces intact. After a one-film departure, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass will start making the fifth Bourne movie next week, and the actor teased why now was the perfect time to come back.
Right now, here’s how close we are to the events of Andy Weir’s novel The Martian actually happening: Not very. NASA believes we’re probably about 20 years away from putting an astronaut on Mars, but as the movie about a astronaut being stranded on Mars hits theaters, 20 years feels longer than it sounds.
This fall, America is going to send a manned mission to Mars, and it’s not going to go well. But before all that, any astronauts slated to take this trip would obviously undergo lots of tests—one of which might be an extended period in isolation. And that’s the subject of the latest viral video for The Martian.
We finally have our first official footage of Ridley Scott’s adaptation The Martian, and we get to meet the crew of Ares 3 for the first time. In it, Matt Damon’s Mark Watney is as hilariously profane as his character is in Andy Weir’s novel.
Following a one-film hiatus from the Bourne franchise, Matt Damon has confirmed that he will reprise his role as Jason Bourne, reuniting with director Paul Greengrass for their third collaboration, and the fifth installment in the Bourne universe.
Matt Damon is supposedly set to star in Alexander Payne's next film, Downsizing. And with that announcement, the long-delayed film is finally getting made. Thank god, because what we know about the project sounds kind of amazingly bonkers.
Remember this video? "Telekinetic Coffee Shop Surprise"? It was created by marketing company ThinkModo to promote the Carrie remake, and depicts an insane prank where a woman seems to have mind-over-matter powers. And now, they're making a sitcom along the same lines.
Syfy has announced yet another new TV series, and this time they're partnering up with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck for a futuristic spy show called Incorporated. But wait, it's not just Jason Bourne in the future.
