But others? Well.... others are less than amicable.

Click through the following photos and stories to remember the splits that resulted in anger, bitterness and many mean social media posts:

1. Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris

The Great Wall Gets Toppled In A Poor Opening Weekend In Theaters

It wasn’t supposed to go like this for The Great Wall!

Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou‘s big flick starring Matt Damon (pictured above) was supposed to be a big deal in the U.S., but it completely bombed over the long Presidents Day weekend — totaling only about $21 million from more than 3,325 theaters.

Yikes!!

Related: Lots Of Controversy For Damon And This Movie, Too…

Considering the film had a $150 million production budget, that’s a very, very bad showing — and remember, this is coming on a technically long weekend at the box office, with Monday’s holiday factoring into the totals, too.

Then again, maybe it was an entire box office thing; the other new release this weekend, A Cure For Wellness, showed out very poorly, too (under $5 million in total gross across 1,750 theaters), as did the comedy Fist Fight, which took in just $14.6 million from 3,100 theaters across the country.

Ouch!

So where did al the money come from?!

Well, look no further than what we’ve already seen in theaters, now making its second and third go-rounds: Fifty Shades Darker did fairly well, with a $20.9 million total in the three day period and, including tomorrow’s holiday, a projected $24.1 million take to add to its growing domestic tally.

And the Lego Batman Movie did well, too — it has now topped $100 million in the U.S. after taking in $45 million on the four day gross for Presidents Day weekend!

So, yeah — Matt Damon and company just lost (bigly!) to a lego movie that wasn’t even a new release.

That box office sure can be unforgiving sometimes!!!

Then again, The Great Wall has already nabbed $171 million in Chinese box office earnings, and another $73.6 million from other foreign markets, so even if it continues to do poorly in America, well, it’s winning its own race.

What about you, Perezcious readers?! Did you see anything this weekend??

Let us know your movie thoughts in the comments (below)!!!

#ThankYouMattDamon Shows All the Ways Matt Damon Changed Asian History

Matt Damon’s new movie, The Great Wall came out today. I’ve seen the trailer and it looks dreadful. I guess it’s about Matt Damon, a white man, saving China from monsters that were being kept out by the Great Wall. Because whenever any culture needs a savior, you can count on a white man.

All of this just reminds me of “Mooney on Movies” from Chappelle’s Show:

And of course, Twitter had fun with Matt Damon being the savior of China with the #ThankYouMattDamon hashtag:

Sylvester Stallone Didn’t Get to Sit at the Big Boy Table

During the Golden Globes, Sylvester Stallone was supposed to be seated next to Casey Affleck and Matt Damon at the Manchester by the Sea table. However, when Stallone arrived with his wife Jennifer Flavin during Jimmy Fallon’s opening number, there was only one seat available. This was a problem. And rather embarrassing. Either one of them had to shuffle away like a spurned child from the cool kid’s table or one had to sit on the other’s lap. Neither of these would have been ideal. No one wants to be a bully and we don’t know for how long Flavin could support 70-year-old Stallone’s weight. So everyone decided on the third option. Awkward shuffling of chairs.

Affleck and others tried to scoot around to make room for more chairs which was hard to do because of how tight the arrangement was. It was probably packed so tight Affleck and Damon played accidental footsies the entire night. Eventually, Stallone and Flavin gave up and went to the green room to watch the show behind-the-scenes.

During commercial break, stage hands made more room, but, having already been rejected once, Stallone and Flavin decided to stay in the green room. No one feels good about a pity chair.

According to an insider, Affleck was backstage later on to present and went up to Stallone to apologize even though it wasn’t his fault. Says the source, “Stallone was horrible to him and told him to get out of his face.” Don’t feel bad, Casey, this outburst was most likely to mask the hurt.

Other sources, however, said there was no issue and Stallone wasn’t even mad, bro. “No one from Manchester did anything to offend him; it was just a seating snafu and it was fixed immediately.”

Hollywood Was NEVER Original! Here Are 11 ‘Classic’ Movies You Had No Idea Were Actually Remakes!

Some cinephiles long for the golden age of Hollywood, where films were considered original pieces of art instead of remakes, sequels, and adaptations.

Well, we hate to shatter the illusion -- but remakes have been a part of the movie making biz long before Paul Feig's Ghostbusters came to town!

Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro's awkward chemistry in 2000's Meet The Parents made the comedy an instant classic, but few fans know that it was actually a remake of a 1992 independent comedy of the same name!

The Bourne Identity had a TV movie a decade before Matt Damon took on the title role, and there was even MORE THAN ONE iteration of The Wizard of Oz before the famous 1939 classic!

Ch-ch-check out our list (below) for more movies you had no idea were actually remakes!

24 Actors Who Turned Down Iconic Roles

Can you imagine anyone other than Tom Hanks as Forest Gump? What about anyone besides Matthew Broderick as Ferris Bueller?

You won't believe what actors actually turned town those roles. In fact, we've got a list of 24 actors who passed on iconic roles -- sometimes for better, and sometimes for worse. 

Check them out below!

1. Michelle Pfeiffer, Silence of the Lambs

Michelle pfeiffer picture
It's true. Maybe you can't imagine anyone other than Jodie Foster as Clarice in Silence of the Lambs, but Michelle Pfieffer was actually offered the role first. She turned it down because it was too violent.

2. Al Pacino, Star Wars

Julie and al pacino
Are you sitting down? Because it's nearly impossible to imagine anyone other than Harrison Ford, but Al Pacino was actually offered the role of Han Solo on Star Wars.

3. Sarah Michelle Gellar, Clueless

Sarah michelle gellar smiling
That's right. Sarah Michelle Gellar passed on the role of Cher in the movie Clueless, which eventually went to Alicia Silverstone. Gellar focused on slaying vampires instead.

4. Leonardo DiCaprio, Boogie Nights

Leonardo dicaprio at the oscars
Leonardo DiCaprio probably made the right choice with this one. He turned down the role of Dirk Diggler on Boogie Nights so he could instead star in a little film called TITANIC.

5. Johnny Depp, Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Johnny depp golden globe photo
Um, seriously? Try really hard to imagine Johnny Depp as Ferris Bueller, you guys. Doesn't work, does it? It's a good thing he turned down that role, because nobody other than Matthew Brokerick could be Ferris Bueller.

6. Lindsay Lohan, The Hangover

Who knows what might have happened if Lindsay Lohan hadn't turned down the role of Jade on The Hangover? Instead, that part went to Heather Graham.

So… How Much Has Been Spent Saving Matt Damon?

matt-damon-martian

We all have different ways of spending our time. I tend to get too high, binge watch a show I’ve seen half a dozen times already and fuck some guy who doesn’t deserve the brilliance that is my vagina, but Kynan Yang likes to spend his time calculating how much money has been spent in an effort to keep Matt Damon alive.

The man, Australian-to-Zurich transplant is an artificial intelligence researcher. So I trust everything he’s ever said. For Christ’s sake, he’s a scientist! Over 7 movies and 19 years, the whopping total is:

A Guy Calculated How Much Money Has Been Spent Saving Matt Damon

Surprisingly low… I mean it’s Matt Damon. The list does not include Good Will Hunting, which seems like an oversight. What about all the time and resources invested into the Matt Damon then?

Movie Budgets
Courage under Fire: $46m
Saving Private Ryan: $70m
Titan AE: $75m
Syriana: $50m
Green Zone: $100m
Elysium: $115m
Interstellar: $165m
The Martian: $108m
TOTAL: $729m

Fictional Costs
My estimates, costs are in 2015 currency
Courage Under Fire (Gulf War 1 helicopter rescue): $300k
Saving Private Ryan (WW2 Europe search party): $100k
Titan AE (Earth evacuation spaceship): $200B
Syriana (Middle East private security return flight): $50k
Green Zone (US Army transport from Middle East): $50k
Elysium (Space station security deployment and damages): $100m
Interstellar (Interstellar spaceship): $500B
The Martian (Mars mission): $200B
TOTAL: $900B plus change

Notes

  • Movie marketing costs are not included
  • Only movies where Matt Damon acted are included
  • Making the Matt Damon movies has cost about 0.1% of the “real” cost to actually send him on all of these business trips
  • His movie gross takings so far are about $2.7B, which is about 40% of the cheapest proposed trip to Mars, as proposed by the Mars One team.

Anyway, obviously Eng, the scientist, used a very complex algorithm completely unknown to the layman. Right? This massive number wasn’t just pulled out of thin air right? But no, he confesses that they’re all made up. Rough estimates adjusted for inflation. From Eng:

This is not real research in the sense that I know it. It would be nice to get this type of coverage for my real work.

Me too, but people will always care about Matt Damon more than a cool robot. I remember Matt Damon but I forget about that cool robot I saw on the front page of Reddit.

Matt Damon on Keeping His Family Out of the Spotlight: ‘I Attribute A Lot of It to Luck’

Rule No. 1: Family first.

Matt Damon may be one of Hollywood’s top leading men, but even with his hectic schedule, he still makes sure to find time for normal dad duties — like teaching his daughter how drive.

“My oldest daughter just got her license yesterday,” The Martian star told USA Today of his stepdaughter Alexia, 16. “She would drive last year just to school every morning. We’d get in the car and drive.”

Damon also shares three other daughters, Isabella, 9, Gia 7, and Stella, 4½, with his wife of nearly 10 years, Luciana Barroso Damon.

The actor, 44, who is notoriously private when it comes to his wife and children, spoke candidly about how he’s been able to keep his family’s personal life out of the spotlight.

“I attribute a lot of it to luck,” he admitted. “[Paparazzi] shoot me every day coming out of the gym. [But] married guy with kids, it’s not that exciting.”

And it seems that even his Hollywood pals notice how much Damon prefers his low-key lifestyle. “He’s very happy having a private life, which I really respect,” his Martian costar Jessica Chastain says.

But just because Damon seems to have it all figured out when it comes to his family, that doesn’t mean he has all the answers when it comes to giving relationship advice.

“I think marriage is insane. It’s a crazy idea but I love being married to my wife,” he told  Entertainment Tonight. So I wouldn’t tell anybody else anything about their relationship.”

Matt Damon Figured Out How to Lose All His Fans

effie-brown

Good news for everyone who loves Matt Damon. Project Greenlight is back for its fourth season after a decade off air. Bad news for everyone who loves Matt Damon. He just tried to minimize the lack of diversity in Hollywood in an attempt at career suicide.

44-year-old Damon got into it with producer Effie Brown about the importance of diversity in Hollywood after Brown brought up concerns about the only woman of color in the film being a prostitute being beat up by her pimp. She wanted to make sure the character didn’t fall into a racist stereotype and suggested a diverse directorial team.

Interrupting, Damon argued, “When we’re talking about diversity, you do it in the casting of the film, not in the casting of the show.”

Brown, taken aback, replied, “Wow, okay.”

Matt Damon’s PR team is probably going through the 5 stages of grief right now. Currently they’re in the, “Awww, c’mon! What the fuck, bro?!,” mode.

Cities and The Cinema: 6 Films That Explored Beautiful Places

 

Cinema has the ability to transport us to totally new places. Whether it’s the stunning cinematography or a plot that creates a character from a city, we can get lost in places we wish to visit when we watch a good film. From the bright lights of Tokyo to the relaxing beaches of Naples — get lost in these six unique cities and the wonderful films that explored them.

Tokyo, Lost in Translation

Lost in Translation is littered with beautiful cinematography and was filmed in Tokyo’s Shinjuku and Shibuya — two of Tokyo’s most colourful and busiest districts. The journey through the Japanese capital experienced by Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray is filled with streets covered in neon pictographs, high-rise hotels and many elements that make for a visually stunning film with a great storyline to boot.

Thailand, The Beach

Post-Titanic Leonardo DiCaprio on a beach. Sounds good enough, right? Well luckily for us, the film was more than Leo’s good looks, and explored the stunning island of Krabi, Thailand. From the lush jungles, blue lagoons and gorgeous beaches, the scenic island played a pivotal role in the film’s success, and further shows the power of locations and cinematography in film.

Ischia, Italy: The Talented Mr. Ripley

Beautiful people in beautiful clothes in a beautiful location — pretty much the perfect description for The Talented Mr. Ripley. The acclaimed film, which stars Jude Law, Matt Damon and Gwyneth Paltrow, takes us on journey through Italy, stopping at Venice, Naples, Tuscany, Rome and San Remo. Talk about a Roman Holiday! The cliffside views, ancient ruins and picturesque beaches add to the mysterious plot of the film, creating a rather dreamy atmosphere.

Edinburgh: Trainspotting

While Trainspotting focuses on the poverty-stricken lives of heroin addicts in the 90s, the Edinburgh backdrop provides a beautiful juxtaposition to the rough lives of these characters. The high energy storyline, set amongst Edinburgh landmarks (the famous opening scene was filmed on Edinburgh’s Princes Street), is one of the few films that presented Edinburgh to the world, and still manages to have an allure even with its dark storyline.

Udaipur, India: The Darjeeling Limited

The colorful and cultured landscape of India gets the Wes Anderson treatment in The Darjeeling Limited. This dramedy about family and the ties that bond them contains rich visuals of Udaipur, as the travelers discover the beauty of this foreign land.

Paris: Amélie

For any Francophile, Amélie is the perfect movie to explore the beauty of Paris. The quirky film starring Audrey Tatou really shows what it is like to live in Paris — specifically in the Montmartre neighborhood. From stone-skipping at the picturesque Canal Saint-Martin, to walking down the cobblestone streets, Amélie truly feels like the ultimate Parisian experience for girls everywhere.

New Trailer For The Martian Makes Matt Damon ‘Science The Sh*t’ Out Of Things To Find His Way Back From Mars! Watch HERE!

Sorry Matt Damon, you might be out of time…

Mr. Damon stars in Ridley Scott's upcoming movie titled The Martian -- based on a book by the same title penned by Andy Weir -- which follows astronaut Mark Watney, played by Damon, as he gets stranded away from his crew on Mars while on a mission and is presumed dead.

[ Related: Jake Gyllenhaal Is Ripped And Angry In The New Trailer For Southpaw! Watch Here! ]

He must use wit, intellect, and ingenuity to try and survive as long as possible to make contact to hopefully find his way home. What does that mean? It means he's going to "science the shit" out of everything!

We're really looking forward to what looks to be an AH-Mazingly epic movie, with a star studded cast that includes Damon, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Michael Pena, Kate Mara, Sean Bean, Sebastian Stan, Donald Glover, and Chitwetel Ejiofor.

Now, the only question we have is, who do you think has better odds of surviving the movie -- Matt Damon, or Sean Bean?! Check out the trailer (above)!

Matt Damon And Several Other Stars Travel To Mars In First Trailer For ‘The Martian’ [Watch]

Matt Damon certainly knows what it’s like to be in space by now after appearing in Interstellar and now taking his turn going to Mars in The Martian. The film features an ensemble cast on a daunting mission to the red planet.

After a couple of teases recently and prior photos released, audiences now have a full-length trailer of the exciting new film The Martian. It is based on the book of the same name by Andy Weir.

The plot of the film focuses on an astronaut (Matt Damon), who is stranded on Mars after a dust storm sends the rest of his crew away, left completely alone similarly to his character in Interstellar, while also similar to Gravity, since he is all on his own and trying to survive.

In addition to Matt Damon, The Martian features an amazing ensemble cast of people in his crew as well as people back home that are trying to bring him back. The crew includes Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Sebastian Stan, and Aksel Hennie, while he is supported by Sean Bean, Mackenzie Davis, Donald Glover, Kristen Wiig, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Jeff Daniels back home.

You can keep track of everyone with this helpful chart:

— Simon Kinberg (@Kinberg) June 7, 2015

Mark Watney (Damon) is presumed dead once the rest of his crew leaves him during the big storm and he is receiving help from both his crew and those back on Earth. NASA and a team of scientists have been working to bring him home while his crew plans a seemingly impossible mission to rescue him.

The film is directed by Ridley Scott who has not dealt with Mars before on film, but clearly has experience working with outer space after making Alien and it will be his first film since Exodus: Gods and Kings.

Matt Damon’s survival mission on Mars will come to theaters on November 25th, just in time for awards season, and there is no doubt that this film will receive something.
