All 27 stars of Skins: Whatever happened to E4's teen tearaways?

7 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Here's one of those 'This'll make you feel old' factoids - it's two years since the last ever episode of Skins aired.

E4's groundbreaking hormone-fest wrapped up on August 5, 2013 - with an older Cook (Jack O'Connell) heading off into an uncertain future at the close of 'Rise (Part Two)'.

Cook was but one of 27 major characters featured on Skins across three 'Generations' - in a total of 61 episodes, split into seven series. But where are the teen tearaways of Roundview College now?

Generation One

1. Nicholas Hoult

Hoult played Tony Stonem - the pre-eminent bad boy of Skins - across its first two series. Later badly hurt in a traffic accident and forced to rely on others, Tony had mellowed by his final episodes.

Now aged 25, Hoult has become a bona-fide Hollywood star with roles in this year's Mad Max: Fury Road and the much-anticipated book adaptations Dark Places and Kill Your Friends. »

New 'The Martian' Viral Video Explores Psychological Testing

14 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I didn't watch this following viral video for Ridley Scott's The Martian. I'm not sure whether the footage within the video was merely created for the film's marketing, but I don't want to risk spoiling knowing any more about the film than I already know and that extends to knowing Matt Damon plays an astronaut that gets stuck on Mars and a rescue mission is devised to bring him home. That, and it co-stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Donald Glover, Aksel Hennie, Kristen Wiig, Mackenzie Davis, Kate Mara and Sean Bean. I mean, do I really need to know much more than that before I see it during its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next monthc yt id="Wygmxzp6VzY" width="640" During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. »

14 hours ago | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you have any lingering feelings that you might skip The Martian, they're about to be abolished. The movie, based on Andy Weir's bestseller, follows astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) as he gets stranded alone on Mars and essentially has to MacGyver his way home.

Check out the two viral videos here, which were released by Ares: live (the name of the mission) on YouTube. And if you still haven't, watch the trailer! »

Latest Featurette For Ridley Scott’s The Martian Asks If Ares-3 Crew Are Made Of The Right Stuff

16 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ridley Scott may have one eye trained on his beloved Alien universe and, specifically, Prometheus 2, but before venturing back to Lv-223 and its surrounding galaxy, the filmmaker will be releasing a much more grounded sci-fi tale with The Martian.

Hot on the heels of last week’s striking screenshots, which pictured Matt Damon’s wayward astronaut Mark Watney marooned on the Red Planet, 20th Century Fox has debuted a new featurette for the film that gives us a better insight into the minds of the Ares-3 crew. After undergoing a ten-day period of isolation, each member of the mission is interviewed individually for a psych test, serving up a vertical slice of their distinct personalities; from Damon’s decorated astronaut to Jessica Chastain’s stern, no-nonsense commander, Melissa Lewis.

Containing no footage from The Martian itself, it’s an effective viral marketing campaign that uses Prometheus as a touchstone, »

16 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The viral campaign for Ridely Scott’s The Martian is truly a thing of beauty, bringing us inside the first ever manned mission to Mars, and introducing us the crew who will have to deal with leaving one of their number (Matt Damon) on the red planet when the movie hits cinemas later this year.

17 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Slated for a glitzy World Premiere at Tiff, and buoyed by some great trailers and promos so far, Ridley Scott's "The Martian" is looking like the return to sci-fi many hoped for when he made "Prometheus": smart, entertaining, and hopefully not filled with with plot oddities.

Matt Damon uses the time to reflect on Aquaman, Michael Pena riffs on "Goodfellas," while Jessica Chastain explains why she has no concerns about being a woman piloting the mission to Mars. Watch below. "The Martian" opens on October 2nd. »

Matt Damon Has an Aquaman Question in New 'Martian' Video

19 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you had to spend 10 days in total isolation, what would you think about? Maybe how Aquaman can control whales?

"The Martian" released a "behind the scenes" video of the Ares 3 crew preparing for their mission to Mars. The crew members are interviewed by a psychologist after a 10-day isolation test. And what they thought about did in that time - and how they respond to the psychologist - is illuminating.

Matt Damon's astronaut, Mark Watney, pondered that deep question about Aquaman's abilities. Watch to see what Jessica Chastain, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan, and Aksel Hennie had to say.

Watch the video.

In "The Martian," Watney is left alone on Mars after being presumed dead and the Ares 3 crew leaves the planet. He has to use some ingenuity to stretch his meagre supplies and find a way to contact Earth to try to find a way to return home. »
