Matt Damon made an appearance at New York Comic-Con this week to promote his latest movie, ‘The Great Wall’, where the discussion about its whitewashing inevitably arose. The film, an epic action-adventure around the mysteries of The Great Wall of China, has been accused of whitewashing the story and elements of history by using Damon’s Caucasian character as the saviour.
Matt Damon reprised his titular role in ‘Good Will Hunting’ for a live reading of the film’s script on Friday night. According to People, Krasinski, who was born and raised in close proximity to ‘Good Will Hunting’s’ Boston setting, admitted that the movie was “unbelievably important” to him.
Controversy erupted last week over the first pictures and trailer from new Matt Damon movie ‘The Great Wall’, with the director Zhang Yimou being accused of whitewashing. Set 1000 years ago, it poses the notion that the Great Wall of China was built to keep out a monstrous creature, and features Damon heavily. ‘Fresh Off The Boat’ star Constance Wu was among the critics, accusing the film of ‘perpetuating the racist myth that only a white man can save the world’.
It may have only just landed in cinemas, but already ‘Jason Bourne’ is making obscene amounts of money in its opening weekend. Matt Damon’s fourth outing - and his first since 2007′s ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’ - seems to be a welcomed return for the action hero. Directed by returning helmer Paul Greengrass (previously responsible for both ‘Supremacy’ and ‘Ultimatum’), cinema goers appear to have taken to the latest conspiracy thriller and looks set to be a huge summer hit.
Matt Damon, now 45, actor started his career with bit roles while he was still a college student in Harvard. Over 50 films later, Damon is now an Academy Award winning writer, actor, producer and father of three. As his fourth Bourne film, Jason Bourne, is set to hit theaters this weekend, we thought we’d take a look back at his greatest red carpet moments.
Damon and Ben Affleck used to travel from Boston to New York for auditions when they were 16 and 14 years old, respectively, on an airline Trump bought.
Unlike James Bond, Jason Bourne has never been one to get his kit off for the camera… until now. In ‘Jason Bourne’ - out now - Matt Damon’s amnesiac spy goes shirtless for the first time in the franchise’s history, but the Oscar-winning star says there’s a very good reason for it this time around. “We’d avoided [going shirtless] for the three other movies,” Damon tells Yahoo Movies in our interview above.
Up until a narratively implausible and logistically ridiculous climactic motorcycle chase through Vegas that feels like a sop to the Fast & Furious crowd, Jason Bourne is an engrossing re-immersion in the violent and mysterious world of Matt Damon’s shadowy secret op. ...
If you’ve seen ‘Team America: World Police’, Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s searing satirical comedy, you’ll definitely remember Matt Damon’s hilarious “cameo”. Speaking in a Reddit AMA to promote ‘Jason Bourne’, Damon said: “I was always kind of bewildered by Team America, I think because it’s hard for us to understand what our images are in public, I think we’re not good judges of that, and when I saw myself on screen just only able to say my own name and not really that well, I kind of wondered 'Wow, is that how people perceive me?' “At that point I just kind of was like, I’m a screenwriter and an actor, and like really?
It can’t have been very hard for Matt Damon to memorise his lines for ‘Jason Bourne’ as it’s been revealed that his character only has 25 lines of dialogue in the entire film. Speaking to the Guardian, director Paul Greengrass let slip his leading man’s minimal amount of dialogue, promising that Damon more than makes up for his lack of talking with a bruising physical performance. The fifth film in the franchise sees Bourne free from his former ties to the CIA but unwilling to move on emotionally, finding solace in the murky underground world of bare-knuckle boxing, so his spare approach to communication would certainly make sense.
Matt Damon’s obviously going to come down on the side of Jason Bourne over James Bond. Bond has the values of the 1960s,” he told GQ Australia. “Daniel [Craig]’s Bond has upgraded him and brought him more into the present, but, classically, that character is a misogynist who likes swilling martinis and killing people and not giving a s**t.
Just when you thought that their best friendship couldn’t get any stronger, Matt Damon comes out and declares that he’d jump at the chance to be a superhero if Ben Affleck was directing. Matt Damon made this revelation to the Irish Examiner while at the premiere of ‘Jason Bourne’, his upcoming return to the franchise that’s due out at the end of the month. After Damon was jokingly asked whether he’d play the Robin to Ben Affleck’s Batman he couldn’t help but laugh, before admitting, “ I’d consider anything with the right director, but I can’t imagine there are any superheroes left, I think they’re all taken at this moment.

Matt Damon has said that gun control in the US is a ‘toxic, radioactive subject’, after being asked about it at the premiere of the new Bourne movie. It would be great to have a sensible conversation about how to not infringe on people’s second amendment rights, which is very important to everybody, but somehow keep the guns away from people like (Sandy Hook killer) Adam Lanza, who are mentally unstable and will go and shoot up a classroom full of little kids. Sandy Hook… was the most egregious and horrifying in a whole group of horrifying incidents, that one was really disturbing for every parent and every American.
Want to do a cool shot of a camera following Bourne as he jumps from a roof through a window the floor below? Don’t bother with special effects, just put a guy on a harness, give him a camera and then make him jump right after the stuntman. Director James Cameron tested the boundaries of puppetry for this sequel, by putting two puppeteers inside the 14-foot puppet’s midsection to work the four arms and then hanging it from a crane.
Good old Matt Damon – not only does he enjoy the singular charms of the British country pub, he’s also generous with his tips.
