One of the most resonant names in the industry, and also one of the most reserved personalities when it comes to his personal life. This October 8, Matt Damon, actor of dozens of successful films turns 50 and we decided to honor him from his legacy in the seventh art.
Although he always keeps his low profile when it comes to his privacy, the truth is that the actor is one of the most recognized in the film industry and continues to achieve great successes and integrate the awards galas.
He starred in the trilogy of “Ocean’s Eleven” (2001, 2004 and 2007), was a ruthless but amnesiac secret agent in all four tapes of Jason Bourne (2002, 2004, 2007 and 2016) and was even directed by the great Martin Scorsese in “The Departed”.
Among his most recent projects, he returns to share the screen with his partner Ben Affleck -together with the person who created the script for “Indomitable Mind” that led them to win an Oscar- in “The Last Duel”, a Ridley Scott film (“Blade Runner”, “Gladiator”, “Thelma and Louise”) about a knight and a knight who work out their squire differences with the sword.
On the other hand, everything indicates that Damon will make a cameo in “Thor: Love and Thunder” (fourth installment of the god of thunder that arrives in 2022). It should be remembered that we saw him in the previous “Thor: Ragnarok” playing an actor who plays Loki (Tom Hiddleston’s character) in the Asgardian play that the god of deception organized.
Here is a short and varied selection of some of his films to celebrate this day.
It is difficult not to start with this film, one of the most significant premieres for Damon, who not only starred in it with the endearing Robin Williams He also created the script that earned him an Oscar in 1998.
The film unfolds the life of Will, a young man who discovers his potential in mathematics, which will involve a debate in his life: choosing to continue with his relatively stable job and friends, or to enter university. The turning point will be marked by a bohemian professor with whom he begins to pursue his destiny.
The pandemic is an excuse to see a premiere that in these times comes as a kind of premonition.
