Matthew Fox's Vantage Point
Matthew Fox arrives at Roissy Charles de Gaulles airport in Paris, France on Sunday.
Fox, 41, is in town to promote the Pete Travis-directed thriller Vantage Point, out Feb. 22. The film’s tagline is: “8 Strangers. 8 Points of View. 1 Truth.”
Vantage Point synopsis: Thomas Barnes (Dennis Quaid) and Kent Taylor (Fox) are two Secret Service agents assigned to protect President Ashton (William Hurt) at a landmark summit on the global war on terror. When President Ashton is shot moments after his arrival in Salamanca, Spain, chaos ensues and disparate lives collide. In the crowd is Howard Lewis (Forest Whitaker), an American tourist videotaping the historic event to show his kids when he returns home. Also there is Rex (Sigourney Weaver), an American TV news producer who is reporting on the conference. It’s only as we follow each person’s perspective of the same 15 minutes prior to and immediately after the shooting that the terrifying truth behind the assassination attempt is revealed.
While doing press for Vantage Point, Fox mentioned how he loves living in Hawaii: “I really don’t like to get the whole paparazzi thing just in my daily life – photographs of my kids and that type of thing – which happens, but it’s very rare. I think if I was living in Los Angeles it would be more difficult for me, so Hawaii has been good in that respect. There’s not a lot of paparazzi that want to do the 2500 mile trek into the South Pacific to get a picture of me walking on the beach. [laughs]”
