A new trailer for The Martian has just been released. Normally I’m not big on space movies, like Gravity. Because all that open …space-ness? Scares the sh-t out of me. But then again, I can’t “science the sh-t” out of anything so being helpless and useless is basically my default position. Full Story

We’ll start here – which is what was supposed to be the only news story about Ben Affleck last night and today, and for a change, a good news story. The premiere of Project Greenlight season 4, The Leisure Class for HBO, a project that Ben and his bff, Matt Damon, have worked on together for many years. Full Story

Yesterday I expressed annoyance with Zoolander 2 for wasting everyone’s time (and Paramount’s money) with a teaser trailer that was nothing. If you can’t illuminate some aspect of the film itself, don’t bother—wait until you actually have something to say about your movie before opening your digital mouth and demanding our attention.

My head is exploding right now. Not because Matt Damon has a ponytail (although that’s some impressively thick hair, non?). But because Matt Damon and Andy Lau are shooting a movie together. Matt Damon and Andy Lau are at a press conference together. Matt Damon and Andy Lau are laughing together. Full Story
I called Everest a big bag of NOPE after watching the first trailer, and after sitting through Fox’s three minute-plus first trailer for The Martian, I am adding this movie to the NOPE bag, too. Directed by Ridley Scott, The Martian is based on Andy Weir’s novel (adapted by Drew Goddard) about an astronaut who gets stranded on Mars after a manned mission is forced to abort. Full Story

You know anyone who doesn’t like Matt Damon? Everybody likes Matt Damon, right? Almost everybody has their detractors. But you never really hear anyone go off about how they can’t stand Matt Damon.

You know who you are. There are a lot of you who love this, who nostalgia for this – Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, and how you like them apples. Matt and Ben were together again on Friday night at the Project Greenlight event for HBO. It’s not often they’re on a red carpet together. Full Story
Mindy Kaling was photographed in LA this weekend gently caressing Matt Damon’s cheek on the set of a commercial. They’re saying it’s a Super Bowl commercial. That might be the “top secret” project she’s been referring to on social media. As many others have pointed out, this is like a full circle situation for Mindy. Full Story
George Clooney is getting married this weekend. Canals in Venice will be shut down. By Monday the city will start floating on Casamigos Tequila.
Here’s Matt Damon arriving with his wife Luciana. If Damon’s there, I can’t imagine John Krasinski and Emily Blunt not being there. I’ll post more photos as they become available through the day… if I don’t get distracted by my birthday.
Celebrating a birthday is always an excuse to take it easy. But celebrating your birthday on a Friday? It would be almost UNNATURAL to work too hard on a birthday Friday. But you still go to work. Always go to work on your birthday if it’s a weekday. Because then everyone has to be nice to you AND you get a free pass to f-ck around.
Have a great weekend!

There are a lot of fans of Matt Damon out there. But Matt Damon doesn’t make himself available too often for pap shots…even though, ahem, he lives very close to the Afflecks. This is another conversation. Here’s Matt Damon out for dinner in Brentwood last night. They keep putting his name on the reported list of celebrity guests to George Clooney’s wedding. Full Story
