Matt Damon Poses For Photos With Several Lucky Fans

Matt Damon landed at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday evening, and even though his latest flick isn't doing well at the box office, he was in a great mood, signing autographs and posing for photos with a handful of happy fans.

Matt will be appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live tomorrow to promote Promised Land, and we're not sure if he'll chat about how little money it's made at the box office (so far it's only earned $7,542,000 and it cost $15 million to make), but we're guessing he might address the fact that the film was financed in part by Image Nation, a company completely owned and operated by the oil-rich government of the United Arab Emirates.

The film follows a salesman for a natural gas company (Damon) who travels to a small town to try and buy out land from the locals, but he's met with quite a bit of resistance. Last month Damon was asked about the foreign-oil funding at a promotional event in New York, by Philem McAleer, who directed the pro-fracking film FrackNation. McAleer asked Damon, "How does it feel to be a fully-paid advocate for an oil-rich Middle Eastern government - and doesn't that really negate any artistic credibility that Promised Land might have?" Damon's reply? "[T]he first time we were aware that Image Nation was involved with our movie was when we saw the rough cut and saw their logo."

Curious to see where that goes!
