On this day in 1997, Good Will Hunting, a movie that will earn childhood friends Ben Affleck and Matt Damon a Best Screenplay Oscar and propel them to Hollywood stardom, premieres in Los Angeles. Good Will Hunting, which opened in wide release across America on January 9, 1998, featured Damon in the title role as a troubled math genius from South Boston. Directed by Gus Van Sant (Drugstore Cowboy, My Own Private Idaho), the film co-starred Robin Williams as Will’s psychologist and Minnie Driver as Will’s girlfriend; Affleck played Will’s best friend, Chuckie. A big box-office success, Good Will Hunting received nine Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (Damon) and Best Supporting Actress (Driver) and won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar (Williams) in addition to the gold statue for Best Original Screenplay. Before the success of Good Will Hunting, Damon and Affleck had achieved some notice in Hollywood but were far from household names. Matthew Paige Damon, who w ...

Interested in fracking? Check out "Promised Land" by Gus Van Sant with Matt Damon and "Gasland" a film by Josh Fox that Debra Winger produced, both fairly recent movies about fracking and Big Oil. We're all watching New York's Governor as their decision on fracking in the state is coming soon.
Participant, Doha Film Institute create $100 mil film fund Partners discuss TV, digital, movie distribution By JOHN HOPEWELL Berk Al-Khater BERLIN -- In its second high-profile deal in a key and expanding overseas film region announced in just one week, Jeff Skoll's Participant Media is teaming with the Doha Film Institute (DFI) to jointly create a $100 million revolving fund to finance development and production for 12-16 Participant feature films over the next five years. The slate's films will all be in English. The partners plan to make "a wide range of films across diverse genres, aimed at the global market," said Participant Media's Jim Berk. Films will be in the vein of Participant-backed U.S. small town set "Promised Land," from Gus Van Sant and with Matt Damon, and Tate Taylor's Mississippi-set "The Help," with Emma Stone. The $100 million revolving fund will cover the cost of all the slate's films, Berk added. Deal was announced Wednesday by Berk and DFI CEO Abdulaziz Al-Khater. The film fund is ...
Fracking has gone Hollywood. In January the movie “Promised Land,” directed by Gus Van Sant and written by and starring Matt Damon and John Krasinski, was released. It explores the role of “landmen” — natural gas industry salespeople who pave the way for hydraulic fracturing. Damon plays gas industr...
'I gave you very specific Matt Damon, how did Ben Affleck happen!?' -Gus Van Sant
    'Promised Land': Four and a Half Stars (Out of Five)   Gus Van Sant and Matt Damon reunite, after 1997's 'Good Will Hunting' and 2002's 'GERRY'.  All three collaborations were starring and co-written by Damon while Van Sant directed.  Damon was going to make this film his directorial debut but stepped down due to scheduling conflicts and asked his buddy Van Sant to direct it instead.  I don't know what kind of a job Damon would have done but Van Sant is one of the Best Directors around and does a breathtaking job here once again.  Damon co-wrote 'Good Will Hunting' with his longtime pal Ben Affleck and the two co-starred in the film together; he did the same kind of teamwork with Ben's brother Casey on 'GERRY'.  This time around he co-wrote and co-produced the film with actor John Krasinski (of TV's 'THE OFFICE' fame) and Krasinski also co-stars in the film as well.  The movie is a heartfelt drama with a strong environmental message about fracking that has some ultra-conservatives upset.  No ...
I like to think that, every night, Matt Damon calls up Ben Affleck at 3AM and goes "Where were you in The Departed?" and "Check out all the people who paid for Bourne Identity 4 just to look at my headshot!" And Ben channels all the rage and jealousy into legitimately good filmmaking. Someday, he will direct Matt and Casey to an Oscar. But not if Gus Van Sant can do it first!
Matt Damon in Gus Van Sant's drama about fracking in rural Pennsylvania, Promised Land. (Photo: Sam Jones/AP)Last week, the oil company Chevron took out a full-page ad in the Atlantic Monthly to say – seemingly innocuously – that hydraulic fracturing, better known as fracking, needs to be "good for ...
We got to see a lot of movies before and over the holidays, and I'm feeling pretty informed going into Oscar season for the first time since the NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN year. So the nominations actually mean something to me this time, and there are so many glaring omissions. Ben Affleck's direction of ARGO was flawless and inspired, and now, unrecognized. (Spielberg? LINCOLN was super - I loved it - but the direction was not the standout. DDL, Field, and Jones can direct themselves, and most likely did. And where was James Spader's supporting actor nom?? He was amazing. Robbed.) ROBBED!!!: Matt Damon and John Krasinski's script for Promised Land avoids preachiness and is as inventive and compelling as they come: crickets. It should be in the Best Picture category (there's room for 1 more...); it is as surprisingly fresh as they come, and every bit as good as ARGO, which might be my pick at this time (have yet to see ZERO DARK THIRTY or DJANGO). While we're at it, director Gus Van Sant deserved one, ...
News of the extreme lackluster box office for the new Matt Damon film about fracking, "Promised Land," comes as a bit of a surprise. Normally movies about fracking do huge box office ("Frack! The Movie" and "Frackmageddon" being just two examples). From The Hill: Fracking gets natural gas out of the ground, but it isn’t bringing people into movie theaters. Big stars and political controversy didn’t translate into a significant box-office haul as “Promised Land,” a new movie exploring environmental concerns about the gas-production method known more formally as "hydraulic fracturing," fared poorly in its nationwide opening. The film, which Matt Damon co-wrote and stars in, took just 10th place at the weekend box office, with $4.3 million in ticket sales, according to The Los Angeles Times. “Promised Land,” which cost $15 million to make and was directed by indie pioneer Gus Van Sant, delves into fears about water pollution from fracking. Industry insiders say concerned producers are considering ...
Look for my review of 'Promised Land' today. It stars Matt Damon & Frances Mcdormand. Directed by the talented Gus Van Sant.
Another snowy day in H-Town. The perfect weather to head out to the movies... Today’s Review: Promised Land The combination of Matt Damon and Gus Van Sant enticed me to see this film. I wasn’t expecting the same film as Good Will Hunting, but I was expecting something good. And it was good. Not great. I was hoping it might address the issue of fracking – one that is in the news a lot. Out west, we are indoctrinated in movie theatres by Alberta companies about how things are safer now, but then I see the trailer for Gas Land, and people lighting their drinking water on fire. I was hoping for more of that, but there isn’t. It is actually about one man’s struggle with his own integrity, with his soul at stake. Excellent performances, and a compelling story; on those levels, it is a powerful film. And there are speeches about fracking, but they are minimal. But, there was nothing earth-shattering about the film. It plays like a drama, but makes a turn, though not expected, did take me out of the fil ...
Before You Watch: Although the film is clearly a passion project for director Gus Van Sant alongside co-writers/co-stars Matt Damon and John Krasinski, one of the production companies that backed the project is located in the United Arab Emirates.  Image Nation Abu Dhabi FZ is quietly becoming a player in Hollywood and some of its projects carry political themes.  The UAE holds the seventh-largest reserves of crude oil in the world.   The story: Steve Butler (Matt Damon) is a company man whose past is rooted in America's troubled farming community.  He's the guy whose job it is to convince other farmers to sell their land and make way for so-called progress, all under the very convincing guise of financial independence for farmers and energy independence for the country.  Steve's employer is Global Crosspower Solutions, which is an energy powerhouse that utilizes the controversial practice of hydraulic fracturing -- commonly known as "fracking" -- to drill for natural gas.  But many environmentalist ...

Promised Land Review - Matt Damon reunites with Gus Van Sant for powerful environmental drama
Nick Ahlers reviews the drama Promised Land, from director Gus Van Sant and starring Matt Damon & John Krasinski.
"Promised Land", starring/co-written by Matt Damon, is out in some locations now. It's also directed by Gus Van Sant & scored by Danny Elfman so it's sort of a Good Will Hunting reunion only without Ben Affleck. How much of a difference could that make? Read the review.
Let the ‘fracking’ battle begin: two films about Shale Gas are being released in the New Year – one pro-fracking, the other against. One has been touted for Oscar glory and features Hollywood actor Matt Damon, star of The Bourne Identity trilogy, with Cannes Best Director award winner Gus Van Sant at the helm. The other is a made-for-telly documentary following Irish journalist Phelim McAleer, which got $210,000 of funding from 3,000-odd people on crowd-sourcing site Kickstarter. In a country which has been the envy of gas-producing nations all over the world with its Shale Gas boom, the two flicks are about to go head for head – if not in the box office, then in the hearts and minds of the American public. In anti-fracking film Promised Land, Matt Damon plays a gas firm salesman who buys up the drilling rights to plots of land from small-town Americans. The Focus Features film is set to open the upcoming Berlin film festival. It highlights the environmental risks of fracking and is said to cast t ...

Does anyone know, or know how to contact, director Gus Van Sant (or John Krasinski, Matt Damon, Frances Mcdormand...)? He's in Pittsburgh filming "Promised Land," which I understand is a feature film about the Marcellus Shale. I recently wrote a song about Marcellus Shale - probably one of my best - and I'd like to send it to him (or some other relevant person engaged in "Promised Land" production). I'd love to see if my music could do some good for the cause, and of course, I'd be just tickled to get my music in a feature film (and such a relevant one at that!). This is probably one of the issues I'm most closely tied to, and it would mean a lot to me to be able to contribute to the public discussion on such a scale.
