Ridley Scott has obviously figured out a way to kill Sean Bean off in his upcoming adaptation of The Martian as the legendary British actor, known for dying in most of his films, has joined the cast as a ‘Nasa flight director.’ The film, based on Andy Weir’s source novel of the same name, starts shooting soon for a 2015 release.
The story revolves around the first people to land, and potentially die, on Mars.
Here’s the official plot:
Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.
Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.
After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, »

Sean Bean has just been cast in Ridley Scott’s latest film, The Martian. He joins an already awesome cast which includes Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Jeff Daniels, Michael Pena, and Kristin Wiig. Based on an e-book by author Andy Weir, which was published in 2012 and then published in paperback this year, the film will follow the first man on Mars. Bean will play the Nasa flight director.
Of course, all us Bean fans are wondering how the man of many deaths will meet his maker. Research shows that Bean’s film’s box office correlates directly with whether or not he dies, and the more gruesome his death, the higher the box office (*statistics yet to be verified by anybody of any importance). So how will Bean die in this latest offering from the Prometheus and Blade Runner director?
Well, it sounds as though Bean will remain on Earth, »

The human movie spoiler returns. Sean Bean, next to be seen on the big screen in The Wachowskis' delayed Jupiter Ascending, has landed a role in Ridley Scott's upcoming adaptation of Andy Weir's book, The Martian.
Bean joins a cast that includes Matt Damon, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Kristen Wiig and Jessica Chastain. And he'll be taking on the role of Nasa's flight director in the movie. Having read the book over the past week, unless there's a significant detour taking with the screenplay, this role is going to offer something radically different for Bean: survival chances.
The story of The Martian centres on astronaut Mark Watney, who finds himself stranded on Mars. He has finite resources. He's out of contact with Earth. And nobody is due to return to the planet for years. »
Matt Damon stars as an American astronaut who finds himself stranded on a Martian colony as he struggles to survive long enough for Nasa to rescue him. Sean Bean will play a Nasa flight director, joining a cast that already includes Jessica Chastain, Michael Peña and Jeff Daniels.
It hasn't been confirmed when shooting will begin, but we reported back in June that production will start sometime this fall.
“He’ll suffocate! He’ll experience explosive decompression! He’ll be roasted by a stray rocket booster! He’s playing the planet Mars and it blows up at the end!” Yes, we can almost hear the litany of 'How Will Sean Bean Die?' jokes being drawn up as we write this, but here’s the news anyway – he’s joined the cast of Ridley Scott’s The Martian.Matt Damon is starring in the film as Nasa astronaut Mark Watney, left stranded on Mars after his crewmates on the Ares 3 mission are forced to evacuate by a dust storm.To stave off death on the Red Planet, Watney tries to rustle up water and grow crops.

We’ve been getting a few hints here and there about interesting changes coming to the Game of Thrones narrative in the upcoming season five, and now we more or less have confirmation of one of them. After a public event in Sevilla, where the show is filming, show producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss confirmed to the Spanish press that yes, season 5 would finally introduce flashbacks into the show. (spoilers ahead) This has been rumored for a while now, as Sean Bean has hinted it may be possible for him to return in a flashback as Ned Stark, despite his season one death. Similarly, Charles Dance recently said that it was possible he would be returning to the show as Tywin Lannister, despite his death at the hands of Tyrion Lannister last season. The show has all but completely avoided flashbacks as a narrative device so far, only dabbling in… »

Screenplay by Stephen Massicotte
Directed by John Fawcett
Germany/Isle of Man/United Kingdom, 2005
Much of The Dark fails to make any sense. This carries out through the resolution of the film, where the ultimate solution to the plot not making any sense is for the ending to not make sense. Horror can be ambiguous, there’s nothing wrong with a horror movie that plays in the realm of the nonsensical. However, there’s ambiguity with a purpose, and there’s a lack of being able to make your plot make sense. The Dark isn’t ambiguous, it merely doesn’t make any sense and Stephen Massicotte has no idea how to deliver a screenplay that makes sense.

As the worlds of video games and movies become more entwined, the more difficult it gets to tell them apart. Nowadays blockbusters in both fields cost roughly the same amount to make, sell as much as each other, and both star Kevin Spacey. The plots in video games begin to resemble films, as action sequences in films begin to resemble video games. For the most part the line between the two remains relatively strong in that, well, there’s yet to be a film where your decisions affect the outcome of the ending (Clue aside) – but the blur continues as more and more “proper” actors start lending their likenesses and voices to games.
Spacey’s appearance in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is just the latest in a long line of those tempted by the decent pay packet and probably the smaller amount of work needed to just fart »

The brand new trailer for “Jupiter Ascending” is here! The film written and by visionary directors The Wchowskis stars Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton and Tim Pigott-Smith in a revolutionary sci-fi adventure. Here’s more about the film. “Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin [ Read More ]

Mila Kunis may insist to Channing Tatum that she's "nobody," but he knows better. In the sci-fi action thriller Jupiter Ascending, which was supposed to have been in theaters this past July but is instead coming out in February, Mila plays Jupiter Jones, alien royalty left working as a maid on Earth and none the wiser—until Sean Bean's Stinger fills her in and secures Channing's intergalactic warrior Caine as her protector. Though more than human herself, Mila needs that protection because one of the other heirs to the world-domination throne, Eddie Redmayne's super-mean-looking Balem, wants her dead. And he has that British accent, so you know he's »
By now you’ve probably heard of Jupiter Ascending.
Originally slated to hit theatres this past summer, the film was pulled from the theatrical release schedule in order to give some added time to the special effects in the film. After all, this is a space fantasy, and the Wachowskis, the sibling directing duo who brought us The Matrix, weren’t going to let their space opera look anything but state-of-the-art. Judging from the newly released trailer, their wait has paid off.
With colourful visuals and CGI-effects, Jupiter Ascending tells the tale of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), and earth-bound human who just happens to be reincarnated space royalty. Unknowingly, Jupiter stands at the top of a rival space family’s hit list, she’s the only thing standing in the way from Belem (Eddie Redmayne) and family from taking over Earth. Lucky for Jupiter, she has Caine (Channing Tatum) by »
