Trailer Trashin’: Matt Damon is Lost in Space in The Martian Official Trailer

28 August 2015 7:29 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It’s the last weekend of August, dear readers, and the summer movie season is at an end. But there’s still plenty of cool stuff coming to our theaters this year, from James Bond to Star Wars and everything in between. This week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ takes a look at The Martian, the upcoming sci-fi film from director Ridley Scott.

Premise: A manned mission to Mars goes awry, and astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead and left behind on the planet by his crew. Watney fights to survive in the harsh environment and to signal to others that he is still alive. Upon discovering Watney’s signal Nasa, scientists all around Earth, and his crew members collaborate to find a way to rescue him.

My take: English filmmaker Ridley Scott has had a good relationship with science-fiction. The two films that helped put him on »

Neil deGrasse Tyson Guides You To The Red Planet In Latest Viral Clip For The Martian

28 August 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

To date, 20th Century Fox has supplemented its riveting full-length trailers for Ridley Scott’s The Martian with a trio of viral clips, designed to introduce the cast and crew of the Ares-3 before they embark on their daring mission to the Red Planet. Chief among those has been the character psych tests, allowing us to gain a gist of the personalities of the leading members of the crew, specifically Matt Damon’s cocksure Mark Watney and Jessica Chastian’s commander, Melissa Lewis.

Adopting a slightly different tactic this time around, the studio has unveiled an informative clip that stars famed American astrophysicist and cosmologist, Neil deGrasse Tyson, who channels his screen presence from the Carl Sagan-inspired Cosmos series to guide you from our pale blue dot across the solar system and onto Mars. It’s a neat, if self-indulgent, tease for The Martian, with Tyson documenting all of »

As If The Martian Needs To Be Any Cooler, Now Neil deGrasse Tyson Is Selling Ares

27 August 2015 7:44 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The movie that already has everyone in it, and is based on perhaps the coolest idea in a decade, now The Martian ups the cool factor to unprecedented levels as Neil deGrasse Tyson offers us a special episode of “StarTalk” that walks us through the Ares mission to Mars.

It’s a “show” that comes from post-2029, after the first manned mission to Mars, and it’s bizarrely fascinating to watch.

Take a look, and pre-order another ticket for The Martian.

Liev Schreiber received his first Emmy nomination for Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his role as the titular fixer on the third season of Showtime’s “Ray Donovan” last month. The nominee is in good company, being in the same category as eight-time nominee Jon Hamm, three-time nominee Kevin Spacey, previous winners Kyle Chandler and Jeff Daniels, and Bob Odenkirk of AMC’s “Breaking Bad” prequel “Better Call Saul.” But to Schreiber, being nominated is a strange one. “I struggle with the idea of comparing people’s work and art,” Schreiber told TheWrap. “The notion of giving awards or putting a competitive. »

New Poster For The Martian

26 August 2015 9:09 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It’s bad enough being stuck on Mars as the only human being on the planet, trying to live in a place that is absolutely inhospitable to that idea. It must be even worse if you’re Matt Damon and the inhuman Space Paparazzi are hovering. All right, so that last bit isn’t true, but here’s the latest poster for Ridley Scott’s The Martian anyway.   Adapted by Drew Goddard from Andy Weir's bestseller, The Martian features Damon as Nasa astronaut Mark Watney, seriously injured and thought dead by his crewmates on Mars during a huge storm that forced them to evacuate. But Watney is very much alive, and intends to stay that way, putting his botanical skills, engineering nous and astronaut survival training to good use, figuring out ways to live with limited supplies. Fortunately, he’s also got a wry sense of humour to keep him sane. »

The Martian – New Stills Drop For The Sci-Fi Adaptation

26 August 2015 12:13 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

The marketing machine for Ridley Scott’s The Martian has really jumped up a gear in the last few weeks.

Following a second trailer, Empire have unveiled a pair of new set photos from the upcoming sci-fi adaptation.

Check them out below.

20th Century Fox 20th Century Fox

The Martian follows astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) after he’s left stranded on an alien planet in error. Watney has to find a way to survive, whilst his superiors back on earth debate whether a rescue mission is a viable course of action.

The stills don’t reveal much extra, rather just emphasising  Damon’s prevalence in the movie, and underlining the complications of shooting a story set in space. Although, as someone who hasn’t the read the book, the fact Damon looks to be underwater in one of the images seems like an odd, but potentially intriguing development, »
