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

1 hour 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, »

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

3 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. »

New Images From The Wet Hot American Summer Prequel

23 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It might have been more of a post-cinema release cult hit, but Wet Hot American Summer boasted so much comedy acting talent packed into its cast that it was somehow natural that someone would try to bring it back. That someone was Netflix, which commissioned follow-up series First Day Of Camp, which will arrive on the streaming service in July. The first full batch of images from the show is now online.  The series, according to co-writer/director David Wain, is “a prequel to the original movie. In real life we’re 15 years older but in the show we’re playing two months younger. The movie took place on the last day of camp in the summer of 1981. The show takes place on the first day.”Pretty much the entire original cast – which included Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper, Christopher Meloni and Molly Shannon – is back for this one, »

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 »

Last night, the first image from 20th Century Fox’s The Martian landed online, giving us our first look at Matt Damon in director Ridley Scott’s upcoming thriller. Now, an official version of that photo plus a few other images from the film have been released online. 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 (Damon) must use the power of science to keep himself alive on the red planet. Speaking with Empire, Scott says he thinks of The Martian as “a 21st century Robinson Crusoe." Indeed, comparisons to Crusoe and the more recent Cast Away are inevitable, but Scott has filled out the film with a stellar »

Official images from Ridley Scott’s The Martian

24 May 2015 4:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last night we brought you a first-look image of Matt Damon in Ridley Scott’s upcoming sci-fi drama The Martian, and now Empire has released a high quality version of the shot, along with a further two stills; check them out here…

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, Nasa and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return. »

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, »

Exclusive First Look At Ridley Scott's The Martian

23 May 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Aside from returning Matt Damon to the far reaches of space, The Martian looks like departing from Interstellar's philosophical ruminations in favour of an out-and-out astronaut-in-distress thrills (Cc Apollo 13, Marooned, Gravity). Damon plays a marooned astronaut called Mark Watney and the new issue of Empire magazine is debuting a first look at him and his Mars-worn spacesuit. Based on Andy Weir’s self-published 2012 novel, The Martian sees Watney as part of a science team conducting experiments on the red planet. When a storm forces the team to evacuate, Watney is injured and presumed dead, then left behind to fend for himself. With little hope of rescue and limited resources, he uses the power of science to keep himself alive on the planet’s barren surface."Any survival story is fascinating,” expands Scott in Empire. “I think of it as a 21st century Robinson Crusoe.” The director, who, presumably »

50 Funniest Comedy Movie Moments Since 2000

23 May 2015 3:19 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DreamWorks Pictures Comedy is undoubtedly the most subjective movie genre of the bunch. Everyone simply has a difference of opinion as to what they think is funny. Some people might find the sight of someone vomiting on another person hilarious while others prefer their comedy to be slightly more sophisticated. Neither preference is wrong, just different (and certainly not mutually exclusive).

The turn of the century saw a shift in the cinematic comedic landscape. The dominance of Jim Carrey was on its last leg, and fellow comedy heavyweights such as Adam Sandler and Eddie Murphy would soon find themselves relegated to mostly lowest common denominator films that lack comedic souls.

The early 2000s saw the rise of Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and many others. By the time the mid-to-late-2000s came around, guys like Judd Apatow, Seth Rogen and Zach Galifianakis were running things. Fast forward to present day, »

22 May 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Reboots have gotten pretty annoying in their excess, but we are not complaining about this one. David Wain and Michael Showalter are offering up a 8 episode prequel to their cult classic 2001 movie "Wet Hot American Summer," and the gang is all here: Janeane Garofalo, Bradley Cooper (hopefully offering up more of the man-on-man action he had in the movie), Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Paul Rudd, Christopher Meloni, Ken Marino, Elizabeth Banks and Michael Ian Black all return, while Jon Hamm, Josh Charles, Chris Pine and Kristen Wiig are among the newcomers. We could not be more excited, especially now that those first official images have been released... "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp" arrives on July 31st on Netflix.

If you haven’t heard of her already, Amy Schumer is about to break out in a big way this summer with the Universal film Trainwreck. She wrote the comedy based on plenty of personal experience, then was tapped to lead the movie onscreen with Judd Apatow directing.

She will pen the screenplay with her sister, Kim Caramele, who serves as an associate producer and writer on Inside Amy Schumer.

Netflix Releases Summer Camp Photos For ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Series

22 May 2015 10:01 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Netflix is teasing Wet Hot American Summer fans with some new images. The streaming platform has released photos from its upcoming original series, set for premiere on July 31, 2015.

Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer is the eight-episode sequel to the 2001 film of the same name. While the movie told the story of the last day of summer camp at Camp Firewood in 1981, Netflix’s original series will cover the first day. Wet Hot American Summer stars the majority of the original film’s cast members, who are now big-wig Hollywood names like Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, and Bradley Cooper.

Back in December, Netflix announced it would be bringing a TV series of Wet Hot American Summer to life. The original cast members were confirmed a month later, who were later joined by several new faces to the Camp Firewood crew (like Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, and Jon Hamm »

Netflix has released the first images from its Wet Hot American Summer revival series, First Day at Camp, and they are everything fans could hope for. The prequel to the 2001 film again takes place in 1981, which of course only augments the hilarity that the cast (originally in their 30s playing teenagers) are 15 years older now, and playing even (ever so slightly) younger characters. All of the film's original cast will be returning, including Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander,Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon and Michael Showalter. And, as previously reported, other returning actors are H. Jon BenjaminNina HellmanA.D.
