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 »

Watch: Neil deGrasse Tyson Stars In a Viral Video for 'The Martian'

28 August 2015 7:26 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

One thing sci-fi fans will be expecting this fall is a response from Neil deGrasse Tyson on the scientific authenticity of Ridley Scott's The Martian. But the celebrity astrophysicist is already endorsing the movie in a big way. He stars in a new promotional video as himself, hosting an episode of his show StarTalk that only exists within the universe of The Martian to discuss the fictional spacecraft The Hermes and its dangerous Ares 3 mission to Mars. At the end, after stating that Earth is the planet "to which we owe our creation" but "no longer seems destined to be our final resting place," we see a group image of the Ares 3 crew, characters played by Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan, Aksel Hennie and...

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.

The video reveals that this mission takes place on the Hermes space station, with Neil deGrasse Tyson explaining that the Hermes is the most complex and expensive machine ever built, which remains "harbored" in low Earth orbit between its various missions. He also explains that it will take 124 days to make the 140 million mile journey to Mars, where the Ares crew will spend a month in a special compound that will protect them from all of the life-threatening Martian elements. »

'The Martian' and Rooster Teeth part of dazzling Fantastic Fest 2015 line-up

27 August 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It is time for me to make my peace with the fact that I will not be at Fantastic Fest this year. Last year's fest was one of my favorites ever, fitting for a tenth anniversary, and I would love to go this year. It's just not in the cards, though. It guts me, too. The event continues to grow and change and evolve, and it features one of the greatest programming teams in the business right now. There are films playing at the festival that I'll see in Toronto, and I'm sure I'll catch up with others, but that's not the point. Fantastic Fest is an experience, and an amazing one. If you want to go, you still can. "Daytime Only Badges, Fan Badges, and 2Nd Half Badges for Fantastic Fest 2015 are available for purchase here," today's press release urged. If you can go for the second half, you'll »

Johnny Depp, Leo DiCaprio – Which acting contenders this year are most due for their first win?

26 August 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Of the many storylines that begin during awards season, few are usually as compelling as the ones centered around who’s most due for an Academy Award. I think that it’s usually pretty satisfying to see a former bridesmaid finally become a bride, as it were. As such, below I’ve made up a list of ten actors or actresses who’ve previously been nominated for Oscars but have yet to win one who are in contention this year. I’ve more or less ranked them by how due they are, and just to be fair, I’ve excluded anyone who has already won a prize elsewhere (sorry Matt Damon, for example), or any of the myriad contenders who are seeking their first ever nomination by the Academy. Take a look below and I hope you enjoy! Here now are the ten actors and actresses most due for their »

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, »
