It has sort of become a running joke in Hollywood that Matt Damon needs rescuing in a number of his blockbuster films.
So this poses the question, how much would it cost to save Matt Damon?
Well worry know more as one Quora user has estimated it would take $900bn to rescue Damon from all the tricky situations he gets himself into.
Kynan Eng, came up with a break down based on the 2015 currency of Damon’s ‘extended’ business trips.
Here is his break down:
Courage Under Fire, Gulf War I helicopter rescue – $300K
Saving Private Ryan, World War II Europe search party – $100K
Titan A.E, Earth evacuation spaceship – $200m
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 – $500bn
The Martian, Mars mission – $200bn
The total budget for the above movies was $729 million, just 0.1 per cent of the “real” cost of actually sending Damon on the trips.
