Drew Goddard's script for the sci-fi blockbuster (based on Andy Weir's tech-heavy novel of the same name) is so packed with well-researched scientific jargon and Nasa logos it's making people believe Mark Watney's survival story is true.
As spotted by BuzzFeed, here are a selection of the most amusing tweets on the subject...

Earlier this week, Entertainment Weekly pulled back the curtain on the intense first trailer for S. Craig Zahler’s cannibal western Bone Tomahawk, pinpointing some of the unspeakable threats that await for Sheriff Franklin Hurt (Kurt Russell) and the denizens of Bright Hope, the dusty old town he’s sworn to protect.
Low and behold, Russell’s grouchy lead has a posse of supporting characters along for the ride, and today the studio has rolled out five moody, sun-kissed character posters for the drama. Tethered with simple monikers in a style not unlike Quentin Tarantino’s, the one-sheets are really designed to show the film’s leading players, who will put old quibbles aside when the find they have a common enemy: a marauding group of savage cannibals.
What unfolds is an old-fashioned rescue mission, after a number of townsfolk are kidnapped by the cannibals, leaving Russell’s law enforcer »

The world is ruled by women when all male mammals (all but two) die suddenly. A group of teens discover their parents are part of an evil crime organization. War-torn Iraq is seen through the eyes of lions escaped from the Baghdad Zoo. These are just some of the tales spun by Brian K. Vaughan, one of the most compelling, creative, thought-provoking writers in comic books today. Issue #4 of Vaughan’s “We Stand On Guard” hits comic book store shelves today. The mini-series imagines a war between the U.S. and Canada about a century into the future. It centers on 18-year-old Canadian Amber, who’s survived on the run for 12 years when her older brother is captured by the American army. The series will run for a total of six issues, though Vaughan told HitFix that he and artist Steve Skroce “are already talking about what we’re gonna work on next. »

Imagine waking up to discover everything you believe about your life never happened. That’s the personal disaster explored in mystery thriller Pali Road, starring Michelle Chen (You Are the Apple of My Eye), Jackson Rathbone (Twilight), Sung Kang (Fast and Furious series) and Henry Ian Cusick (Lost). Named for the scenic highway on Oahu associated with local supernatural lore, the film follows a young doctor (Chen) who wakes from a terrible car accident to learn she has… »

Days after wrapping Season 2 of The Strain with one of the FX drama’s most unexpected deaths, showrunner Carlton Cuse and exec producer Chuck Hogan (who cowrote the horror novel source material with Guillermo del Toro) answered burning questions about Nora’s fate, Eph’s reaction, Eldritch Palmer’s (possible?) change of heart and more.

You wait years for a Kurt Russell-fronted Western and suddenly two arrive in quick succession. Before heading off into the wintery hills of Wyoming for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, we’ll see Russell pick up the hat and sheriff’s badge for S. Craig Zahler haunting cannibal drama Bone Tomahawk, and today brings forth the film’s maiden trailer.
Coming by way of Entertainment Weekly, our first look at Zahler’s stylish and decidedly dark drama showcases Russell as Sheriff Franklin Hunt, sworn protector of a dusty old town known as Bright Hope. Haunted by a group of vicious cannibals, the residents of the remote settlement sleep with one eye open, though when a number of settlers are kidnapped, Russell’s lead whips a search party in order to locate the missing persons – and put an end to the cannibal’s reign once and for all.

With Marvel Studios and Warner Bros. planing to keep churning out super hero movies for the next decade or so, it looks like the heroes of both cinematic universes will have some company, with Hasbro Studio’s president Stephen Davis announcing their plans at the MIPJunior conference (via TFW2005) in Cannes to continue the Transformers franchise through to 2025. As well as the already announced Transformers 5 and an animated origin movie, Davis revealed that Hasbro’s Writer’s Room, which includes Akiva Goldsman (Angels and Demons), Robert Kirkman (creator of The Walking Dead comic book), Jeff Pinker (Fringe, Lost), Zak Penn (The Incredible Hulk), and Steven DeKinght (showrunner on Netflix’s Daredevil), has generated ideas for parts 6,7, and 8 of the franchise. You can read what he had to say below: Well, you’re gonna see a new Transformers movie coming from Hasbro and Paramount and Michael Bay and our other partners. »

We'd waited months, debated Twitter fouls and argued over the too-much-too-soon of it all — finally, last week, we got a taste of what a Trevor Noah-led Daily Show would actually be like. The South African comedian had the tall task of replacing Jon Stewart, who over a decade ago turned the politically savvy late-night show into a nightly ritual for many Americans (and more recently, a reliable source for "so-and-so destroys such-and-such" articles on the Internet). The first few nights mostly inspired a lot "he seems unflappable" comments — and »
Earlier this year, Paramount and Hasbro brought together a writers' room of scribes to help map out the future of the Transformers films.
Headed up by Batman & Robin and A Beautiful Mind writer Akiva Goldsman, the room featured the likes of The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Iron Man's Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, Lost's Jeff Pinkner and The Incredible Hulk's Zak Penn. The idea was that between them all, they'd flesh out and pitch a bunch of films that would carry the Transformers series forward.
And so it's turned out.
Hasbro Studios president Stephen J Davis has declared the exercise an overwhelming success. In his address at Mip Junior in Cannes (which sounds posh, so naturally we weren't there), Davis said that "as some of you may have read, just an incredible experience. We decided that »
Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.
The first season of HBO’s The Leftovers proved one of the most divisive in recent memory. Throughout ten maddening, mesmerizing episodes, the series came into its own as a haunting exploration of grief, depression and earthly purpose, all the while dancing around its central mystery – why did two percent of the world’s population vanish into thin air? – without concrete plans to ever answer it. Instead, the series dove headfirst into the lives of characters forced to adapt to something inexplicable, dwelling on the misery and mystery of survival under such strange circumstances. The results were alternately soul-crushingly brutal, heart-wrenchingly beautiful and straight-up baffling; and on more than one occasion, they were all three.
But above all else, season 1 of The Leftovers felt deliberate. Especially given the showrunners (Damon Lindelof, whose Lost mythology stands among the richest and most complex ever constructed; and Tom Perrotta, »

I warned you it was going to be different!
The Leftovers launched its second season Sunday with a new setting, an overhauled ensemble and a fresh Departure-related mystery. By the time the credits rolled on the hour-plus premiere, I had a million questions. I narrowed that number down to nine and promptly brought them to executive producer and co-creator Damon Lindelof. The resulting Q&A is below.

Ahead of the start of the second season, we recap where we left each of the characters after the dark drama’s finale left us with just a glimmer of hope
Few people like taking risks as much as Damon Lindelof (co-creator and executive producer of Lost), so perhaps it should come as no surprise that he and co-creator Tom Perrotta have rebooted the second season of The Leftovers, their bleak examination of loss, grief, faith (or the lack thereof), moving the action from small-town New York to small-town Texas and bringing in a whole new cast of characters at the same time. Don’t despair, however, for this isn’t a True Detective-style anthology reworking and many of last year’s cast will still appear. The question remains how and, in some cases, in what guise? With that in mind, here’s our guide to where we left things »

The first trailer for cannibal western Bone Tomahawk has arrived online, and we have it for you below…
Directed by S. Craig Zahler, Bone Tomahawk stars Kurt Russell (The Hateful Eight), Patrick Wilson (Watchmen), Matthew Fox (Lost), David Arquette (Scream) and Richard Jenkins (Killing Them Softly) and tells the story of a local sheriff who rallies some locals to take on cave-dwelling cannibals.
A stranger (David Arquette) rolls into the tiny Western town of Bright Hope, immediately drawing the suspicions of the backup deputy Chicory (Richard Jenkins). He alerts the town’s sheriff, Franklin Hunt (Kurt Russell) and in an ensuing scuffle, the stranger is wounded and put in jail. Summoned to tend to the wounded man is the beautiful Samantha O’Dwyer (Lili Simmons), whose successful working-class husband Arthur (Patrick Wilson) is laid out at home with a broken leg.

“The Martian” has been called “‘Cast Away’ on Mars” in various corners of the Internet, but it’s actually quite a different movie than the 2000 Tom Hanks film. Yes, Matt Damon’s astronaut is stranded in a place where he has little hope of surviving, but he approaches the extremely treacherous situation very differently from Hanks’ character. Damon’s character remains rather humorous, upbeat and optimistic in his time persevering to survive on the Red Planet. That optimism is largely what spoke to “The Martian” screenwriter Drew Goddard when he read the novel by Andy Weir that’s the basis for the film, which opened in theaters yesterday. Goddard (whose past credits include “The Cabin in the Woods,” “Lost” and “Buffy”) spoke to HitFix about the challenges of adapting a book with a lot of technical language, why he considers “The Martian” a “religious movie,” and which book moment that »

Drew Goddard cut his teeth in the entertainment industry as a writer for Joss Whedon on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Since then he's stayed largely in the TV world, having worked on Alias, Lost, and Marvel's Daredevil series, but he continues to flex some increasingly big movie muscles. He wrote Cloverfield, he directed Cabin in the Woods (which he co-wrote with Whedon), and he was supposed to write and direct The Sinister Six before the Andrew Garfield-version of Spider-Man fell to the wayside. Goddard's latest movie credit is as the screenwriter of The Martian, which he adapted from Andy Weir's fantastic book about an astronaut who gets mistakenly left for dead on Mars. In fact, Goddard was the original director on the project but had to pass when The...
