Yesterday we brought you the first batch of stills from Ridley Scott’s new sci-fi The Martian starring Matt Damon, and now thanks to EW and People we’ve got even more stills from the film, which sees Damon as an astronaut stranded on his own on the surface of Mars…

Matt Damon gets stuck in space again in 8 new photos from The Martian

10 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Seems like Matt Damon just can’t get enough of being stranded in space.

He’s back in a futuristic-looking spacesuit to play pioneering astronaut Mark Watney in The Martian, a tale of survival on the Red Planet helmed by veteran director Ridley Scott. Damon’s character gets left behind on Mars after a brutal storm, and has to survive until Nasa can figure out a way to get him home.

We already know Matt Damon can do stuck-alone-in-space, as he proved in his treacherous Interstellar cameo last year. This time there’s no Matthew McConaughey to come rescue him, but the cast includes the very capable Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Jeff Daniels, Sebastian Stan, Kate Mara, Donald Glover, Sean Bean, Kristen Wiig and Michael Pena.

The new photos released seem to follow the source novel by Andy Weir pretty closely, and we’re interested to see how the usually »

Matt Damon Is A Lonely Astronaut In First Stills For Ridley Scott’s The Martian

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

Andy Weir’s acclaimed sci-fi novel is creeping ever closer to its big-screen debut, with Empire releasing a trio of images from Ridley Scott’s The Martian that sees Matt Damon stranded on the red planet and an awful long way from home.

Stepping into the dusty, Nasa-approved shoes of one Mark Watney, Damon will play a member of a manned mission to Mars who is inadvertently left behind after he is presumed dead following a raging storm. Billed as a survival story, Watney, armed with little more than his wit and will, must engineer a means of contacting mission control in order to find a way back to our pale blue dot.

It’s a story not unlike his bit part role in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, though on this occasion Damon will have plenty more dramatic material to chew over come November.

Joining the esteemed actor for the galactic voyage are Jessica Chastain, »

More The Martian Images Feature Matt Damon Surviving Ridley Scott’s Red Planet

13 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox has released more The Martian images online after releasing the first few this past weekend. Based on Andy Weir’s self-published 2012 novel of the same name, the movie revolves around an astronaut who finds himself stranded on Mars after he is injured and presumed dead by his team. With limited resources and a finite amount of time before his oxygen runs out, Mark Watney (Matt Damon) must use the power of science to keep himself alive on the red planet. I’m really hoping that director Ridley Scott breaks his streak of making disappointing movies and just churns out another good one, but this story has a lot of potential. Based on what little we’re seeing so far, it looks good, and I especially like the hodgepodge design of Watney’s spacesuit. Check out the new The Martian images below, which includes a first look at Kristen Wiig’s character, »

13 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

After playing an astronaut stranded on a frozen planet in Interstellar, Matt Damon is heading back into space with the starring role in The Martian. And, once again, he plays an astronaut left to fend for himself on another planet. This guy just can't catch a break. The first look at the highly anticipated Ridley Scott film has arrived in the form of a batch of images, featuring Damon and the star-studded cast investigating the Red Planet.  Empire magazine was the first to start releasing photos of The Martian, but since then Entertainment Weekly and People magazine entered the fray. In the film, Damon plays astronaut Mark Watley, who, along with a team of scientists, is exploring and conducting experiments on Mars. Due to a freak storm, the team is forced to evacuate, but Watley is injured and is left behind to fend for himself. You can see his despair »

Matt Damon Goes Interstellar Again In New Pics From Ridley Scott's 'The Martian'

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

"Any survival story is fascinating. I think of it as a 21st century Robinson Crusoe,” Ridley Scott tells Empire about his upcoming "The Martian." But frankly, putting this cast in any kind of movie would have our attention. Matt DamonJeff Daniels, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Chiwetel EjioforKate Mara, Michael PeñaMackenzie DavisSean BeanDonald Glover and Naomi Scott make up the ensemble of this one, and following the first look over the weekend, another batch has arrived. The latest go at sci-fi from Scott is based on the book by Andy Weir, with a script penned by Drew Goddard (“Daredevil,” “The Cabin In The Woods”). The story follows an astronaut who is left stranded on a Martian colony and struggles to survive, while back on Earth, Nasa tries to mount a rescue mission. It seems Damon has trouble being left alone on distant planets in sci-fi movies these days. »

First Look: Pictures of Matt Damon in Ridley Scott's 'The Martian'

24 May 2015 8:40 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've grown very cautious when it comes to anticipating anything from Ridley Scott. As much as I found interest and intrigue in Prometheus, Scott just hasn't been hitting on all cylinders for some time now and even I can't argue against Prometheus naysayers and you won't find me making arguments for Exodus: Gods and Kings, The Counselor or Robin Hood. So, as much as I want to get excited about The Martian, I'm keeping my expectations in check. That said, today Empire, People and EW have revealed the first pictures from the upcoming movie based on Andy Weir's 2012 e-book publication that centers on an astronaut (Matt Damon) who is stranded on a Martian colony and struggles to survive. Back on Earth, Nasa tries to mount a rescue mission. Here's the official plot: During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce »

First The Martian Picture Reveals Matt Damon as Stranded Astronaut Mark Watney

23 May 2015 2:31 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Well, this looks a bit familiar. Roughly a year after popping up in outer space as Dr. Mann in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, Matt Damon is decked out in astronaut attire yet again in the first image from Ridley Scott’s The Martian. Damon leads the big screen adaptation of the Andy Weir novel as Mark Watney, an astronaut who’s presumed dead and left behind by his crew. However, Watney actually survived the nasty dust storm and now he’s got to figure out how to survive on the hostile planet with limited resources and no way of calling for help. The Playlist tracked down the image on the Spanish site Entradanumerada.com, but it looks to be a scan from Empire Magazine. Check out the first The Martian picture for yourself below. The film also stars Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Donald Glover, »

First Official Photos: Astronaut Matt Damon in 'The Martian' Movie

23 May 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Nice orange suit there, Mr. Damon. Coming to theaters later this year is Ridley Scott's next sci-fi movie, The Martian, adapted from Andy Weir's novel about an astronaut stranded on Mars. Matt Damon plays Mark Watney, that astronaut on Mars, and while we posted a "first look" a few months ago, this is really the photo everyone's been waiting to see. Well, everyone should wait to see the trailer for this - because the footage is going to be the most impressive part. Then again, if you're a space suit nerd this may be your moment to flip out. The shot (which looks like a magazine scan) shows Damon in his astronaut suit for his mission to Mars, on the Ares III. It's a cool shot, with some of the Martian landscape reflecting in his visor. Check it out. Here's the first photo of Damon in The Martian scanned by EntradaNumerada. »

First Look: Matt Damon As An Astronaut In Ridley Scott’s ‘The Martian’

23 May 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It might seem odd for Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain to star in almost back-to-back sci-fi films that are kind of similar —  Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” and Ridley Scott’s “The Martian” — but evidently the resemblances weren’t enough to scare off either actor, or the prospects of working with these directors and their great casts were too good to pass up. Written by Drew Goddard (“Daredevil,” “The Cabin In The Woods”) as a project he was originally going to direct, “The Martian” centers on an astronaut (Damon) who has just become one of the first people to walk on Mars. But after a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking he's dead, he finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive. Even if he can get word out, his supplies will be gone long before a rescue could arrive, »
