Another Matt Damon Hollyweird movie to avoid: “Downsizing”

Based upon Damon’s last movie, Suburbicon, seems that a lot of people are sick and tired of Damon and his politics.

Damon starred in Suburbicon, a libtard George Clooney-directed movie, which failed miserably at the box office. Suburbicon opened on October 27 and as of November 27 had made only $5,775,178. That is no surprise considering Clooney, Damon and the other “star,” gun-grabber Julianne Moore.

Matt Damon has another movie coming out on December 22: Downsizing. The premise of this picture, from Wikipedia:

Downsizing imagines what might happen if, as a solution to over-population, Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink humans to 5 inches (13 cm) tall and propose a 200-year global transition from big to small, but with one catch: the procedure cannot be reversed. People soon realize how much further money goes in a miniaturized world, and with the promise of a better life, everyman Paul Safranek (Matt Damon) and wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in Omaha in order to become small and move to a new downsized community—a choice that triggers life-changing adventures. To Paul’s horror and outrage, he finds out that Audrey backed out at the last second. After the couple understands that they do not have a future together, they divorce and Paul must now figure out how to start his life over in a completely different world.”

Damon has been part of the Hollyweird machine that hid the Weinstein sex scandal, promoted gun control and generally been a hypocrite in the highest form. Examples:

Box office bloodbath: Hollywood has worst October in a decade

julianne moore2

Couldn’t happen to a finer group of people.

From Hollywood Reporter: Following a record September, the October box office was a bloodbath.

Revenue for the month won’t crack $560 million, the worst showing in a decade after a string of movies underperformed domestically. Through Sunday, October ticket sales stood at $539.1 million, down a steep 13.4 percent from the same time period last year, according to comScore. The last time October revenue didn’t cross $600 million, or $700 million, was in 2007.

The final weekend of the month was particularly brutal. Moviegoers already ambivalent about showing up to for the new titles on the marquee were easily distracted by Halloween parties and the World Series (to boot, Stranger Things 2 premiered on Netflix).

The malaise struck hard.

Case in point: George Clooney’s upscale dramedy Suburbicon opened to a paltry $2.8 million from 2,046, the worst showing of any film Clooney has directed and a career low for star Matt Damon outside of All the Pretty Horses in 2000. The $25 million film, also starring Julianne Moore and Oscar Isaac, was skewered by critics before getting slapped with a D- CinemaScore by audiences.

It is also among the worst wide openings in Paramount’s history. The studio has endured one box-office disappointment after another this year; last month, Darren Aronofksy’s mother! opened to $7.5 million domestically for a total to date of $17.8 million. Globally, the horror film, starring Jennifer Lawrence, has earned $43 million.

Thank You for Your Service, from Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks and partner Universal, didn’t fare much better than Suburbicon after failing to drum up interest in America’s heartland. The $25 million film, starring Miles Teller as an Iraqi war veteran suffering from PTSD, opened to $3.7 million from 2,054 locations. Universal and DreamWorks hosted dozens of screenings for members of the military and veterans, hoping to emulate the success of American Sniper.

But the biggest reason for the worrisome slump was the lack of a successful big event film along the lines of past October hits Gravity ($274.1 million), The Martian ($228.4 million) or Gone Girl ($167.8 million).

This year, not one October release crossed $100 million domestically. Blade Runner 2049, which hoped to follow the same trajectory as Gravity and The Martian, has only earned $81.4 million since its release on Oct. 6. Environmental disaster pic Geostorm also faltered, earning just $23.6 million in its first 10 days. Both films are facing major losses.

To be fair, no 2016 October title cleared $100 million, either. However, five titles did earn north of $50 million; this time out, only one has, Blade Runner.

October has been a bloodbath at the box office, and unfortunately reminiscent of what was a very slow month of August,” says comScore box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian. “With year-to-date revenue down 5 percent and just two months left in the year, making up the difference will be a daunting task with enormous pressure on every movie to perform to get us anywhere near last year’s record $11.4 billion North American record.”

George Clooney:

Matt Damon:

Julianne Moore:

The movie is receiving terrible reviews on Rotten Tomatoes:

    • A disappointing misfire for director George Clooney, Suburbicon attempts to juggle social satire, racial commentary, and murder mystery — and ends up making a mess of all three.”
    • “What’s the point of “Suburbicon“?”
    • “If there is a way to join these elements together, Clooney has failed to find it.”
    • A misfire in virtually every respect…Tonally the picture is a mess rather than a satisfying blend of disparate moods.”
    • “Irritating, faux-edgy, tonally wack, strained, unfunny, and such a colossally tone-deaf misfire.”
    • “The monumental misfire Suburbicon sinks to the bottom of a big pool of talent.”

Don’t waste your money on these people!

Clooney and Damon say they knew Weinstein was a womanizer, not a predator

Damon and Clooney: Selling their souls for fame and fortune

The jig is up boys. Quit trying to backpedal to sell tickets for your racist movie. #TheyAllKnew.

From Hollywood Reporter: George Clooney and Matt Damon are shedding more light on what it was like working with ousted Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, who helped launched both actors to stardom, in the late ’90s.

The pair, during their press tour for the Clooney-directed film Suburbicon, sat down with ABC’s Michael Strahan to clarify what they knew about Weinstein’s alleged history of sexual harassment prior to the media firestorm that erupted after the publication of two exposés, by The New York Times and The New Yorker, which detailed decades of harassment and assault allegations against the disgraced mogul.

“You had to spend about five minutes with him to know that he was a bully, he was intimidating — that was his legend,” said Damon, who first worked with Weinstein on Good Will Hunting and was subsequently signed to a three-picture deal. “When people say everybody knew, yeah I knew he was an asshole. He was proud of that.”

Damon revealed that he had heard of Gwyneth Paltrow’s encounter with Weinstein from friend Ben Affleck, though he had been under the impression that Paltrow had come to “an agreement or understanding” following the incident.

Paltrow was one of the first Hollywood actresses to come forward and accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment. She previously disclosed to the Times that the producer made unwanted advances to her early in her career, summoning her to his hotel room and suggesting the two of them head to the bedroom for massages.

“I knew he was a womanizer. I wouldn’t want to be married to the guy, but it’s not my business,” Damon said, explaining his thinking back then. “But this level of criminal sexual predation is not something that I ever thought was going on.”

Clooney noted that he similarly had an inkling of Weinstein’s alleged behavior around women based on conversations he had with the mogul.

“Harvey would talk to me about women that he’d had affairs with,” said Clooney. “I didn’t necessarily believe him quite honestly, because to believe him would be to believe the worst of some actresses who were friends of mine.”

Telling Strahan he now knows the truth behind what Weinstein had described as an “affair,” he added, “The idea that this predator — this assaulter — was out there silencing women like that…it’s beyond infuriating.”

Clooney called for a change in Hollywood and an end to victim shaming, saying, “There has to be a comeuppance for all of this. All of the people who were part of that chain. And then, we have to make it safe for people to feel that they can talk about it.”

The Suburbicon director, noting that wife Amal Clooney has also been subject to harassment in her line of work, encouraged women to continue coming forward and so that men may be warned that “you’ll be out of the business, and more than that, you might be prosecuted.”

On the topic of harassment in Hollywood, he added, “We’re going to have these discussions, and we’re going to make it harder for it to happen.”

Since allegations first surfaced in the Times, over 40 women — including actresses Lupita Nyong’o, Lea Seydoux and Sean Young — have accused Weinstein of harassment and assault.

The disgraced film mogul has since been terminated as co-chairman from his own company, expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and is under investigation by the LAPD, NYPD and London police.

The downfall of Hollyweird stars: ER actress calls out George Clooney, producer in misconduct claim

george clooney and harvey weinstein

George “I Had no Idea” Clooney and Harvey Weinstein

Every woman has the right to be heard and believed, correct?

Call ‘em all out girls! Burn it down!

From NY Post: A former “ER” actress claims that she was sexually and racially harassed daily on set — and George Clooney helped “blacklist” her from Hollywood when she complained.

“Clooney helped blacklist me when I spoke up abt harassment on ER.’women who dont play the game lose career’I did,” tweeted Vanessa Marquez, who played a nurse on the show’s first three seasons.

She accused actor Eriq La Salle and a crew member of being “p—sy grabbers” and said racial abuse about her Mexican heritage came from “Anthony,Noah,Julianna,” referring to cast members Anthony Edwards, Noah Wyle, and Julianna Margulies.

Marquez said she complained to executive producer John Wells. “Wells was the boss&I 1st reported it to him.His 1st question:Did George do something to u,” she tweeted.

Marquez has appeared in a handful of short films and TV movies since the 1990s, according to her IMDb page. In 2005, she discussed her shopping addiction on the A&E reality show “Intervention.”

Her accusations came after Clooney denounced producer Harvey Weinstein for sexual assault, describing his alleged actions as “indefensible” but saying he had no idea what the movie mogul was up to behind closed doors.”

Clooney denies that he had any part in “blacklisting” the actress with whom he worked on the television series ER after she complained of racial and sexual harassment.

From Breitbart:

“I had no idea Vanessa was blacklisted. I take her at her word,” Clooney said of actress Vanessa Marquez’s explosive claims.

“I was not a writer or a producer or a director on that show. I had nothing to do with casting. I was an actor and only an actor. If she was told I was involved in any decision about her career then she was lied to. The fact that I couldn’t affect her career is only surpassed by the fact that I wouldn’t. “

George Clooney: It’s Hillary Clinton’s fault for losing the election & ‘F-you Trump’

Hillary Clinton is blaming everyone but herself for losing last year’s presidential election. See:

Even diehard Democrats have had enough of her whining.

The latest Democrat to speak out is George Clooney, 56, a liberal and longtime Clinton supporter who held a fundraiser for Hillary in April 2016, with tickets going for $353,400 each.

Natalie O’Neill reports for Page Six, Sept. 24, 2017, that Clooney told The Daily Beast that Hillary failed to connect with many Americans because of her communication style:

“It was frustrating because I never saw her elevate her game. I never saw it. And I had a lot of liberal friends who were like, ‘She’s not good at this.’

She was more qualified than even her husband was when he was elected president, but she’s not as good at communicating things. When she got up and gave a speech, it didn’t soar. I think that she wasn’t particularly good at articulating things that she wanted to do, and unfortunately we live at a time right now where articulating what you want to do is more potent in the electorate than the other way around, obviously, when Trump only said he was going to ‘Make America Great Again’. Don’t you think the next Democrat who runs should just run with a blue hat that says, ‘Make America Great Again?’

Hillary, for years and years and years, has been the presumptive nominee, and quite honestly, she was incredibly qualified for the job. But being qualified for the job does not necessarily mean you’re the right person to be president.”

Having said all that, Clooney still thinks Hillary would have made a better president than Trump. Calling President Trump out of touch, Clooney says “Fuck you” to the president:

“He lives in a gold tower and has twelve people in his company. I just look at it and laugh when I see him say ‘Hollywood elite.’ Hollywood elite? I don’t have a star on Hollywood Boulevard, Donald Trump has a star on Hollywood Boulevard! Fuck you!”
