Someone Calculated How Much Money We've Fictionally Wasted Saving Matt Damon
I think it's time to let Matt Damon die, y'all.
According to Quora user Kynan Eng's calculations, if all of Matt Damon's characters were real, we would have already spent nearly a trillion dollars trying to save him:
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
What is it about Matt Damon's face that makes people want to keep him safe? Apparently his movies have only grossed $2.7B, so he's not even close to pulling his own fake weight.
