A deleted scene from “The Martian” encompasses everything that made audiences love the film to begin with: It’s funny while evoking sympathy for the astronaut left alone on Mars. In the clip, Mark Watney (Matt Damon) continues to “science the shit out of this thing,” while taking care of research that wasn’t completed before Commander Lewis (Jessica Chastain) and her team were forced to leave abruptly. While doing so, the log camera records everything he says and does, and Watney does not miss the opportunity to mock his fellow astronauts. Also Read: Will Hugh Jackman's 'Pan »

Matt Damon is science-ing the shit out of blockbuster success right now at the box office with "The Martian," and the movie is a big one in many ways. It features a sprawling ensemble, loads of effects, and runs well over the two-hour mark. So you might not be surprised that there was some material left on the cutting room floor. Read More: Tiff Review: Ridley Scott's 'The Martian' Starring Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain & Chiwetel Ejiofor A deleted scene from the movie has arrived, showing that the Damon charm offensive was felt in every frame in the picture, whether it made the cut or not. In this sequence from astronaut Mark Watney's video log, we see him touching all the scientific equipment he wasn't able to when his crew was around. It's a comedic moment, but one can easily see why it was snipped. After that, you »

Guillermo del Toro may be having little luck within the video game space – namely, the Silent Hills cancellation – and the ongoing troubles with his Pacific Rim sequel, but the director is on the verge of returning to a genre that he knows and loves with Crimson Peak. And now, with little over a week away from its theatrical bow, the studio has debuted a featurette and clip for the unique, R-rated gothic horror.
Showcasing just enough secrets from Allerdale Hall to have us gleeful – and petrified – with excitement, the behind-the-scenes clip really underlines the craftsmanship that went into building the decrepit abode for Crimson Peak. It is, in essence, a haunted house like no other, with del Toro and the film’s design team going the extra mile to ensure that the house simply oozes atmosphere. Heck, we’d even go so far as to describe it as one of the horror’s leading characters. »

The Martian fell just shy of breaking Gravity's box office record for highest October opening of $55.7 million, by taking in $55 million in its first weekend. That record will likely be in no danger of falling this weekend either, with only one new movie arriving in wide release, Warner Bros.' Pan, and TriStar's The Walk expanding. With Pan's less than stellar critical reception so far, the projections at BoxOffice.com indicate that Pan likely won't have a shot at the top spot, with The Martian set to win for a second time in a row.
The Martian opened in 3,750 theaters, a count that isn't expected to change too much going into its second weekend at the box office. Ridley Scott's sci-fi drama following the quest to save an astronaut stranded on Mars has been called the best movie of the year by a number of critics. We still »
We're less than two weeks away from being able to step into Guillermo del Toro's "Crimson Peak," and while the critics who saw the movie at Fantastic Fest are embargoed at the moment, the buzz that has leaked out is pretty positive. So, until the verdicts officially arrive, and prior to being able to see the movie for yourself, a wealth of new peeks have arrived. Read More: Watch 3 Spooky New Clips From Guillermo del Toro's 'Crimson Peak' As you likely already known, the powerhouse cast of Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, and Charlie Hunnam star in the spooky movie about a woman who gets married, and winds up in a house that holds all kinds of creepy secrets. Frankly, this is mode I prefer del Toro to be working in — moody and atmospheric — rather than making big machines clang together in "Pacific Rim." "Crimson Peak" opens on October 16th. »

When Ashley Judd was making Paramount’s “Kiss the Girls” in the late ’90s, she was being pursued by a mogul from a rival studio, whom she believed wanted to cast her in a film. But suddenly she found herself falling into a dark trap.
“I was sexually harassed by one of the industry’s most famous, admired-slash-reviled bosses,” the actress says, revealing a story she’s never before publicly disclosed. The man, who Judd declined to name, invited her to dinner. When she arrived at his hotel, she was told to meet him upstairs in his room. “It was so disgusting,” she says. “He physically lured me by saying, ‘Help me pick out what I’m going to wear.’” The advances continued to escalate. “The ultimate thing when I was weaseling out of everything else was, ‘Will you watch me shower?’ ” Her voice cracks. “And by the way, I »

For a big budget movie about a lone astronaut who gets stranded on Mars, the spacesuits in The Martian are surprisingly sober in terms of design. There is an attempt here to make everything seem as plausible as possible, costume design especially. Director Ridley Scott’s regular costumer Janty Yates has created possibly the sexiest spacesuits ever seen on screen, and what’s more they are functional. To paraphrase a line in the film, she had to “science the shit out of them”.
Yates collaborated with Nasa looking specifically at their Z1 and Z2 prototypes to create an Eva (‘Extravehicular Activity’ – any time the crew must go outside) suit and surface or ‘bio’ suit (worn on Mars). The surface suit is similar to the blue under-suits she created for Scott’s near future set Prometheus in 2012, although further grounded in reality. The Prometheus under-suits could, in theory, monitor functioning levels of the human body, »

Last Friday night, local movie theaters were packed in anticipation for the space-thriller showing of Matt Damon's new film, "The Martian." The buzz was ridiculous. Regardless of the hype, I was planning on seeing the film. Who would I be kidding if I didn't see such a star-studded film that included Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, and Jeff Daniels? I know, with a cast of that magnitude its got to be a must watch... but no.
Sorry to disappoint.
The film fares well initially, with drama and a good build up. The protagonist's wit and charm via Damon is welcoming. However, with all of those ingredients, by the time the end credits roll, there's no satisfaction.

Chicago – It’s all based on science, they told us! “The Martian” is an old fashion feel-good movie about the hard working astronauts and scientists of the good old American space program, trying to rescue a stranded spaceman from Mars, aided by a brave cast of astro-colleagues.
This film is a reminder of other space rescue suspense operas that have come before it, most recognizably “Marooned” (1969) and “Apollo 13” (1995). The All-Star cast is also a reminder of those types of “name” ensemble cast films as well – “hey, is that Kristen Wiig?” All that aside, “The Martian” is a tour de force, pitting Matt Damon’s astronaut character in a sly castaway-in-space mashup, and the special effects and production design are flawless. This is what the current technology in movies are about, the ability to place human beings in other worlds, yet express a recognizable atmosphere in a familiar emotional realm. »

The film opened to $55 million domestically, averaging around $14k per screen. While it is a fantastic opening, it’s sadly just short of the record made by Gravity in this spot a couple of years ago by around $750k. The Martian also opened in 49 territories and added $45.2 million to its total, pushing the movie to over $100 million on its opening weekend.
The Martian didn’t face much in the way of competition, however last week’s number one Hotel Transylvania 2, pulled in an impressive $33 million. It also beat out the wide release of Sicario, which made $13 million domestically.

“The Martian” soared into the stratosphere this weekend, picking up a colossal $45.2 million to top foreign sales charts.
Ridley Scott’s outer-space epic debuted in 9,611 screens across 49 markets this weekend, including such major territories as the United Kingdom, Italy, Australia and Hong Kong. Combined with its domestic haul, the 20th Century Fox release has earned $100.2 million. It opens in Germany, Russia and South Korea next weekend, and should do particularly well when it launches in China. The country’s space program plays a key role in the film, a plot point that should help it attract crowds in the People’s Republic.
The $108 million production stars Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig and Jeff Daniels, and scored the second biggest October domestic debut in history with $55 million, trailing only “Gravity.”
In second place, “Lost in Hong Kong” continued to be a major attraction in China, where it is quickly becoming »

Going into the weekend, many box office prognosticators were wondering if director Ridley Scott's The Martian could break the October opening weekend record set two years ago by Gravity, which earned $55.7 million in its first weekend in theaters. As it turns out, The Martian gave a valiant effort, but came up just short, taking in an estimated $55 million, according to Box Office Mojo. Of course, the film is still in great shape, earning back nearly half of its $108 million budget after just three days in theaters.
The Martian was widely beloved by critics, earning a 94% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, opening in 3,831 theaters for an impressive $14,357 per-screen average. If these estimates hold true when the actual numbers roll in tomorrow, The Martian will have fell just $700,000 short of Gravity's October box office record, but it is still an impressive showing nonetheless. The Martian was the only new movie opening wide this weekend, »

'The Martian' with Matt Damon: Box office record? 'The Martian' fights 'Gravity' for October box office record; actual winner, however, is an Earthbound comedy Released by 20th Century Fox, Ridley Scott's extremely well-received The Martian, starring Matt Damon in the title role as a U.S. astronaut fighting for his life after being left behind all alone on Mars, opened with an estimated $18 million on Friday, Sept. 30, '15, at 3,831 North American theaters, about two thirds of which in 3D. Bear in mind that the Friday estimate includes $2.5 million from Thursday evening and midnight screenings. Directed by eventual Academy Award winner Alfonso Cuarón, Warner Bros.' Gravity, another extremely well-received space movie about a pioneering American fearlessly kicking death's ass while stranded in a – literally – alien realm, collected $17.48 million over the same weekend back in 2013. Sandra Bullock starred as the lost-in-space astronaut and middle-American Mom struggling to »

20th Century Fox released their new Sci-Fi/adventure flick, "The Martian," into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out , and thought it was very entertaining, serving up some great drama along with a great storyline. There was also a lot of suspense towards the end. It stars: Jeff Daniels, Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Kristen Wiig and Matt Damon. In the new flick, an Ares III manned mission to Mars gets hit by an intense storm, causing astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon), to get lost and presumed dead. With the lives of her crew at stake, mission commander Melissa Lewis, is forced to leave the planet, leaving Mark behind. From there, Mark uses his great botanist skills to grow food within the mission's artificial habitat, anticipating that he will need to survive for at least three years and journey to the landing site of the next manned mission. He keeps »
