Controversy erupted last week over the first pictures and trailer from new Matt Damon movie ‘The Great Wall’, with the director Zhang Yimou being accused of whitewashing. Set 1000 years ago, it poses the notion that the Great Wall of China was built to keep out a monstrous creature, and features Damon heavily. ‘Fresh Off The Boat’ star Constance Wu was among the critics, accusing the film of ‘perpetuating the racist myth that only a white man can save the world’.

If you’ve seen ‘Team America: World Police’, Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s searing satirical comedy, you’ll definitely remember Matt Damon’s hilarious “cameo”. Speaking in a Reddit AMA to promote ‘Jason Bourne’, Damon said: “I was always kind of bewildered by Team America, I think because it’s hard for us to understand what our images are in public, I think we’re not good judges of that, and when I saw myself on screen just only able to say my own name and not really that well, I kind of wondered 'Wow, is that how people perceive me?' “At that point I just kind of was like, I’m a screenwriter and an actor, and like really?
In last year’s The Martian, astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) survives alone on Mars for over a year before his dramatic rescue by NASA colleagues. Despite the vast scope of director Ridley Scott’s sci-fi film — which was nominated for 7 Oscars — about 10 minutes of footage was left on the cutting room floor. Those deleted scenes can be seen for the first time in The Martian Extended Edition, available on Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, Digital HD and DVD on June 7.
In this age of buff bodied movie stars with their cucumber water and kale smoothies, the attraction of acting roles that require a bit of weight gain must be irresistible.

Here’s 15 more actors who beefed up and bulked out in the name of art.
From Saving Private Ryan to Interstellar to the currently playing The Martian, there’s been a long cinematic history of saving Matt Damon. Game of Thrones fans had a rude shock when Sean Bean’s Ned Stark lost his head in season 1.
The new sci-fi hit The Martian may be set in the future, but its soundtrack is decidedly retro. The film is full of disco tunes from the likes of Vickie Sue Robinson, The Hues Corporation and Donna Summer, much to the chagrin of stranded astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon), who can’t stand the genre (the tunes were left behind by his ‘70s-era-music-loving commander, Melissa Lewis, played by Jessica Chastain). It’s one thing the guy has to feast on nothing but potatoes for most of the time, and you know, is cut off from direct human interaction for a year-and-a-half. It’s the disco that really drives him nuts.
For all the special effects that go into a mega-budgeted space movie like The Martian, one setting that did not need to be digitally tricked out was the film’s Mars. That’s because the red hues of the Wadi Rum in the country of Jordan bear a striking resemblance to the fourth planet from the sun. “I added dust devils and skies, otherwise it was all real,” director Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner) told Yahoo Movies about the film’s very practical location in the interview above.
