Come watch this mob Sunday at 14:00 3 days from now The Crossing Theatre 117 Tibbereena Street, Narrabri, New South Wales 2390 People for the Plains is hosting a free screening of this movie. This is an entertaining movie to stimulate thought about the issue of Coal Seam Gas Mining and how it may affect Narrabri. The move is made by the Director's of Good Will Hunting and stars Matt Damon, John Krasinski and Frances Mcdormand. Lunch is available at the Crossing Theatre Cafe prior to the screening.
The script was by John Krasinski and Matt Damon. All I can say is that they put some professional Hollywood writers to shame.
Dear Boston, thank you for giving me Matt Damon, John Krasinski, and Chris Evans. Seriously, THANK YOU.

Walking out of a college basketball practice might have been the smartest career move John Krasinski ever made. On the cusp of leaving his show The Office behind for the unknown, Krasinski discusses his surprisingly accomplished resume, co-writing his newest film with Matt Damon, and what not to say...
Anybody notice John C Reilly voicing the Turbo Tax commercials? Why do I know this? And how do I know John Krasinski voices Esurance commercials and Matt Damon voices Ameritrade commercials? I swear I can't believe I recognize this stuff. I swear my brain is full of useless information.

New article is up! Pittsburgh-filmed Promised Land, starring Matt Damon and John Krasinski :)
...is circa 2012- the film, 'Promised Land'- beautiful movie from Gus Van Sant...Matt Damon and Francis MacDormand in truthful performances...John Krasinski & Damon penned a well-rounded screenplay...talented supporting cast...a film with a powerful message...see it...
Watched another good one. (Hey, rainy day...you're stuck inside...let's hear it for Netflix!) This one is a small, low budget, anti fraking film called Promised Land, written and starred in by Matt Damon and John Krasinski. My big business, screw the environment friends are advised not to see this one as it will set your teeth on edge. Not a great film but enjoyable and thought provoking. (Frances Mcdormand is terrific in a supporting role as is the great Hal Holbrook.)
Directed by Gus Van Sant. With Matt Damon, Hal Holbrook, Frances Mcdormand, John Krasinski. A salesman for a Natural Gas company experiences life-changing events after arriving in a small town, where his corporation wants to tap into the available resources.
John Krasinski, thanks for playing that role. Glad you made money screwing America. You too Matt Damon and Frances Mcdormand.
any movie with Matt Damon and John Krasinski can't be bad. I just need to watch it with me.
How did Matt Damon, John Krasinski and Dave Eggers all work on the script for Promised Land and it turn out like...that?
Take it from Matt Damon: Don't get on John Krasinski's bad side. -
The fact that Matt Damon, John Krasinski and Jimmy Kimmel are besties makes my life.
Make sure to come out and see Matt Damon, John Krasinski and Hal Holbrook in Promise Land. A small town trying to save their farming community with the help of a Natural Gas company.
Can't decide which was the best cameo in "Movie the Movie: 2V": Bryan Cranston, John Krasinski or Matt Damon!

Just watched "Promised Land" with Matt Damon and John Krasinski very good movie!
Who is more trustworthy than Matt Damon?!
Promised Land ~ Is fracking "safe"? Be sure to check out this excellent, timely movie starring Matt Damon, John Krasinski & Frances Mcdormand.
Promised Land was a great movie. with Matt Damon, Frances Mcdormand and John Krasinski. It was VERY well done. Exposes some of the tactics of the Natural Gas companies. Story was very well done. I like Matt Damon anyways. Great Actor.
Kudos to the great night of tv last night.Matt Damon took control of Jimmy Kimmel's Live show, and had guests: Robin Williams, Andy Garcia, Sally Field, Reese Withersoon, Nicole Kidman, Gary Oldman, Demi Moore, Sarah Silverman, John Krasinski, Bem Affleck, and bandleader, Sheryl Crow.what a show! Funny as *** a total put-down in jest of KImmel, who for the past ten years signed off his show, "My aplogies to Matt Damon. We ran out of time." Hilarious spoof of late night tv show...a great humourous hour of tv! Anybody out there among my friends see it?
A signed poster from "The Dark Knight Rises," along with items from Tom Cruise, Matt Damon, John Krasinski, Steve Carell and Channing Tatum, will be among items offered during a silent auction at this year's Pittsburgh Film Office Oscar party.
What's with the gazillion stars doing quick appearances on Jimmy Kimmel? Not that I 'm complaining. Matt Damon hosting..Ben Affleck, Andy Garcia, Robin Williams, Amy Adams, Nicole Kidman, Gary Oldman, w/Sheryl Crow as "band director". Plus taped cameos from DiNiro, Emily Blount, Don Cheadle, Sally Field and more. Geez.. And more are planning to show up! Sheryl will be debuting new single shortly.nice accident tuning in!
Jimmy Kimmel Live is off the damned hook tonight! Matt Damon hijacked the show..and in the first 30 seconds...(in order of appearance) Andy Garcia, Cheryl Crowe, my good buddy Ben Affleck, Robin Williams, Sally Fields, and John Krasinski
(AP) — John Krasinski owes it all to "The Office." Krasinski says he would never have been able to be in as many movies or to co-write and co-star with Matt Damon in "Promised Land" if he hadn't been in the series. He says it's been "totally surreal" to have gotten to work with so many big stars. He says he can't even find the words to talk about it. Krasinski says he's "on a roller coaster" that he hopes keeps going. "The Office" ends its run this spring.
I don't tend to get too political on here, but this pertains to my world in a lot of ways. Please do yourself a favor and set your DVR for Fracknation on AXS TV. Encore showings are scheduled later this week. If you are searching for facts on the energy industry, perhaps Josh Fox, Matt Damon, and John Krasinski are not the best sources. However if you're looking for how to make your hair look nice and how to memorize lines, they probably can help you out. Data and Reason aren't as sexy as Hyperbole and Emotion, but they keep your lights on and start your car every morning.
Yesterday Kent and I went to the Reading cinema and saw "Promised Land." This movie is about fracking and really makes you think about our environment. Matt Damon is in this movie, John Krasinski (the Office) and Frances Mcdormand.
'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 ...
Promised Land, new movie starring Matt Damon, has a powerful message about fracking. Buy Governor Cuomo a movie ticket before he decides whether to allow fracking in NY!
Today, I'm going to see the movie Promised Land with Matt Damon. Also, I already saw the movie Lincoln last month which I thought was really good.
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, ...
CANNOT believe Ben Affleck was not nominated for Best Director for Argo. It is nominated for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor for Alan Arkin and Best Adapted Screenplay, which is great, but I was really hoping Ben would be included. Was also hoping that Matt Damon and John Krasinski would be nominated for original screenplay for Promised Land. Very happy for Hugh Jackman for his Best Actor nom in Les Mis., Denzel in Flight, and Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook, but, I have a feeling that Daniel Day Lewis will get it for Lincoln. And deservedly. Best Picture? Wow. So many good ones to choose from. Very happy to see Argo here, but it may come down to Lincoln or Life of Pi OR the Academy could shake it up and give it to Zero Dark Thirty or Beasts of the Southern Wild. It's a very tough call for both Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor categories. Very good choices in both. I still have to see a few more of these flicks before I can make my own opinion. Enough for now. I hav ...
Just realized that Matt Damon and the adorable John Krasinski both have writers credits for "Promised Land." I read that the accuracy in terms of fracking is not so realistic, but rather, it is more of a story about winning the hearts and minds of a community.
John Krasinski and Matt Damon together in a movie might just melt my heart
I like to think the Matt Damon voiced TD Ameritrade ads & the John Krasinski voiced Esurance ads are their characters from Promise Land.
Saw "Promised Land" .small film, but some heavy hitters in the acting department. Matt Damon, very good, but Frances Mcdormand steals the movie. John Krasinski out of his league here, his range just doesn't allow him to play any more than a likeable Jim Halpert. Still, a good twist that I didn't put together for 90 minutes. And my Hot Dog was good because I brought my own Onions, due to Silvercity being too cheap to supply them.
‘Promised Land’ Matt Damon, Francis McDormand. A representative from Global corporation comes to a hard pressed farming community to buy up the rights to the lands Natural Gas that must be extracted by the use of fracking that may be toxic to the environment. Damon co-wrote the script with John Krasinski who stars as the adversarial environmentalist in the film, but unlike his Oscar winning script for “Goodwill Hunting”, this one falls flat in its assertion of the harmful practices of a big corporation. Done by the numbers as this amiable nice guy comes to the realization of what he is selling this rural community. Only a star and a half for this attempt at bringing to light a complex lesson in energy independence.
Well, Aedan & I just came back from seeing "Promised Land". and I must say that I enjoyed the eye candy (Matt Damon & John Krasinski). but was a bit disappointed with the plot. It was pretty predictable except for one spot (and I won't spoil it for anyone who is hoping to see it). a disappointment, because I was hoping for something a bit more powerful from them.
Promised Land (B+) The word ‘Fracking’ just sounds horrible, doesn’t it? Even Matt Damon can’t make it sound good. But while the word may be bad, fortunately the movie is good. Promised Land is part Erin Brokovich and part Local Hero (one of my favorite little movies of all time). I thought it was just going to be a simple story of a big company trying to screw the little guy, and make enormous profits without regard for the environment. And although it kind of is just that, it is definitely more complicated than I thought going in. Matt Damon is Steve, a representative of a Natural Gas company called Global that buys up entire towns to drill for the gas under the land. That process is called ‘fracking’, and while it does extract the America’s most abundant clean energy resource, it may do so at the cost of the land, leaving it dead or dying. Steve and his partner descend on a poor farming town offering big money for drilling leases, and he sees himself as kind of a savior ...
going to see Promised Land Matt Damon and John krasinski can't go wrong
Matt Damon and John Krasinski wrote a movie with fracking as the backdrop to their story. Don't know what that is? I had no idea until this movie. I'll see anything Damon is a part of. My review of Promised Land is up on the blog.
“Promised Land,” the anti-fracking film written and produced by Hollywood stars Matt Damon and John Krasinski, was made in part by a production company owned by the government of Arab oil emirate Abu Dhabi – a state in direct competition with American oil and gas producers
watched "Promised Land" with Valerie Guella and it was an interesting movie. Matt Damon and John Krasinski in a movie, you can't go wrong.
The Christmas week releases in 2012 have been some really great movies so far! I'm almost caught up on the ones I want to see, but I know I'll be at the movies on Tuesday night. Probably for Promised Land with John Krasinski and Matt Damon. Or maybe it will be Seth Rogan and Barbara Streisand in The Guilt Trip. Decisions, decisions.
The Promised Land is a simplistic film which does not live up to any promise. It will be welcomed by those who are against "fracking", but it turns out to be purely propagandistic cinema - good vs. evil - starring Matt Damon, a representative for a major Gas Corporation, who when we first meet him has been promoted to a high position in that company. Damon is so wishy-washy a character that I found him totally unbelievable having difficulty articulating his pro-fracking position as well as his shaky moral values. His partner in manipulating the populace is Frances Mcdormand - who is on her cellphone throughout most of the film, and does add a comedic presence to the movie, but not much more. I have heard better balanced anti and pro-fracking arguments on NPR than anything I learned in this conventional tale of righteousness. The debate pits an ex-engineer, MIT graduate, greatly admired schoolteacher- Hal Holbrook as the voice of the fracking opposition who makes much more sense explaining the insidiou ...
Phelim McAleer, journalist and co-director of "FrackNation," says Matt Damon is poisoning his brand by pretending his movie "Promised Land" is anything but anti-fracking propaganda.
Movie review: Promised Land Jan and I thought we would go see what kind of competition Matt Damon was going to give his bff Ben Affleck at the Oscars this year. It was interesting to see movie star Matt Damon team up with TV star John Krasinski to write and star in the Promised Land. The movie’s theme was recycled- big company taking advantage of small town residents facing tough economic times, and it definitely was a poor man's "Erin Brockovich." However, this was still a good movie in its own right. Matt plays the corporate shark who goes to the town to secure signatures from property owners for drilling rights. His work sidekick is, Frances Mcdormand, who tended to steal the scenes. She and Matt had really good chemistry, and her single mother storyline lent just the right amount of warmth to her curmudgeon character. John is the environmental antagonist to Matt's character, and he brings drama and humor to the storyline. Hal Holbrook played the well-respected science teacher and was excellent ...
Looking forward to seeing this movie. Matt Damon & John Krasinski, two of my favorite actors ;).
In Promised Land, Steve (Matt Damon) was sent to a small, poor town to lease land to drill for Natural Gas. He’s the company’s golden boy who knows how to charm local residents into leasing their minerals. His job proves to be easy at first, but trouble waits. After Steve pays $30,000 cash to buy the support of a community leader, all *** breaks loose at a town hall meeting when a science teacher – who is actually an MIT-trained researcher – states that “fracking” is dangerous and will cause all sorts of environmental problems. Steve is flustered, especially when it comes out that the science teacher packed the town hall with anti-fracking advocates. Damon (John Krasinski) shows up at the scene as a representative of a small environmental group, Athena, to run the campaign against fracking. His family farm was wiped out because fracking ruined their soil and their cattle died. As anyone would have predicted, Damon is fun-loving, witty, and easily wins over the townspeople, w ...
The Gus Van Sant movie “Promised Land,” written by Matt Damon and John Krasinski was recently panned by one reviewer who used “Promised Bland,” to describe her reaction to it. While it is true that this film does not offer an impassioned feud between the good guys and the bad guys by portraying the ...
"Promised Land" is a must see. Not only does it pose interesting, pertinent questions about fraking, billion dollar corporations and the loss of the family farm, it is well written and acted by the screen writer/producers Matt Damon & John Krasinski. I give it 4.5 stars.
Just saw "Promised Land" It's a really good film about struggling small towns in America. Matt Damon and John Krasinski both wrote, produced and star in this film. They were good but Frances Mcdormand is my favorite. I also feel very guilty for having saw "Guilt trip" during Christmas week. This is supposed to be a comedy but it's flatter than Kansas. I'm just glad I saw it for free or I would've wanted my money back.
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 ...
Date Day We went to see Promised Land *** Twist at end of movie has you a bit rattled [turtles don't lie]. You come away wondering what you would do, but really knowing in your heart. The movie exposed ploys used to get people to sign leases for fracking. Probably a must see rental unless you have a thing for Matt Damon or John Krasinski who was just adorable. then you gotta see it now.
I just saw the new movie "Promised Land" and I HIGHLY recommend it:) I'm a huge fan of both Matt Damon and John Krasinski, who co-wrote and starred. AWESOME!!
Watched "Promised Land" yesterday. Maybe it's just me, but it came off as very patronizing: Hollywood elite Matt Damon and John Krasinski (who wrote the screenplay) telling poor landowners not to allow fracking for the good of the environment (read: everyone else). "You shouldn't lease your land to energy companies because we (people who who live in cities and consume energy) think it's bad for the environment." To Messrs. Damon and Krasinski: instead of preaching, put your money where your mouth is and PAY these landowners to not allow fracking.
Matt Damon’s latest film “Promised Land” arrived in theaters nationwide yesterday with a focus on the controversial issue of fracking.

Really enjoyed "Promised Land". I did not find it to be a polemic or any other negative thing said about it by critics. Thoughtful and entertaining script by Matt Damon and John Krasinski. Love it when good actors can also write well.
I really enjoyed Promised Land, I love Matt Damon and John Krasinski as actors and it was good to see their abilities as screenplay writers!

I'm sorry John Krasinski. Your movie Promised Land was just released. But no matter how hard I try, I still think of you as Jim from The Office. Except this time Jim wears a baseball cap and lives in a rural town where Matt Damon wants to poach Natural Gas.
Matt Damon & John Krasinski script + Gus Van Sant at his best = an excellent film. Really enjoyed Promised Land.

In the fracking-centric "Promised Land," Matt Damon, John Krasinski, and Gus Van Sant aim to deliver a star-studded, Oscar-baiting environmental drama -- and they'll do it without a single penguin ...
According to a New York Post article by documentary filmmaker and journalist Phelim McAleer, stars/screenwriters Matt Damon and John Krasinski were forced to make hasty re-writes to their forthcoming eco-drama, “Promised Land,” because it turned out that their premise was founded on fraud. The film, due out in December and already attracting early Oscar buzz, is based on Damon’s corporate character working for a “villainous” oil company that seeks to infiltrate small-town America and deceive its innocent residents. However, he apparently falls for a local lady while Krasinski’s environmentalist character exposes the company’s real intentions to exploit and pollute the land, leaving Damon in the painful predicament of whether he should follow his heart and do “what is right,” or continue pushing the fracking agenda. Yet McAleer, who is working on his own documentary FrackNation – exploring scare tactics perpetuated about the fracking industry – claims that since the screenplay was con ...

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.
