Watch: 'Prometheus' And 'Alien' Re-Cut Together Into 2 1/2 Hour Black-And-White Movie

12 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Ridley Scott’s “The Martian” was recently pushed up a couple of weeks for an October release date and will mark the third time Scott has ventured into space. His previous two interstellar sojourns, “Alien” and “Prometheus,” couldn’t be further apart, critically. One’s a stone-cold classic and the other’s legendary status is definitely less than a sure thing. However, Job Willins has attempted to join Scott’s two xenomorph-featuring films together to make an entirely new film: “Derelict.” Read More: Watch: 7-Minute Video Explores Ridley Scott's Awe-Inspiring And Awkward Filmography  Running nearly two-and-a-half hours, Willins has cut the two films together for a black-and-white version where “Prometheus” has 30 minutes swapped for an hour of “Alien” footage. It’s an interesting look at an alternate timeline where the two films and storylines could have been played as echoes or reflections of each other in the same film. »

Chiwetel Ejiofor Playing Baron Mordo In Doctor Strange

11 June 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel’s Doctor Strange already boasts one of the more interesting casts in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch taking on the role of the Sorcerer Supreme and Tilda Swinton playing a regendered version of The Ancient One. Now, it’s been revealed which character 12 Years a Slave Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor will be portraying – and as expected, it’s one with extensive roots in comic mythology.

As rumored, Ejiofor will take on the role of Baron Mordo, a long-time enemy of Doctor Strange who first made his comic debut in Strange Tales back in 1963. Interestingly, Deadline reports that Mordo isn’t necessarily an out-and-out villain in this new film but rather an “amalgation” of characters pulled from the pages of the Doctor Strange comics.

Mordo’s backstory in the comics is that he was mentored by the Ancient »

Fassbender and Cotillard star in this reimagining of one of Shakespeare's most compelling stories.

Macbeth is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire.

'The Martian' trailer: Will Ridley Scott's space drama wash out the 'Exodus' taste?

8 June 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I can't help but wonder if "The Martian" is fighting uphill from the start. After all, we just watched Matt Damon in a hyped space prestige drama last year. Could the familiarity ding it a bit? Maybe. The bigger question for me is what Ridley Scott has left up his sleeve. "Prometheus" may have had its fans, but I was certainly not one of them. "Exodus: Gods and Men" had no friends in sight. "The Counselor" even less. "Robin Hood" felt misguided and stale. "Body of Lies" seemed to be trying for something fresh but ended up as rote as they come. It's been a long time since "American Gangster." What has kept me more or less on board through all of this is Scott's attention to detail and craft. He is a brilliant filmmaker, regardless of how below the bar this stuff has been lately. "Prometheus," for as much »

Get lost in space with Matt Damon in the first trailer and viral video for The Martian

8 June 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Ridley Scott knows how to make a space movie. Having directed such outer space classics as Alien and Prometheus, he’s proved more than once that he can handle committing the Final Frontier to film.

So it only makes sense that he’s taking on The Martian, based on the bestselling novel by Andy Weir. Starring Matt Damon as astronaut Mark Watney, the story follows a crew of Mars-bound astronauts that end up leaving Watney behind without enough supplies to last. Formally trained as a botanist, Watney has to find a way to survive until a mission can retrieve him, while the people in charge on Earth struggle to bring him home.

Featuring a star-studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Sean Bean, Kristen Wiig, Donald Glover, Kate Mara, Jeff Daniels, Michael Pena, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, this promises to be a memorable space thriller.

A viral teaser and first official trailer have been released, »

New Viral Video Provides Our First Look At Ridley Scott’s The Martian

8 June 2015 1:33 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Coming our way later this year, Ridley Scott returns to space for The Martian, based on the best selling novel by Andy Weir, and our first proper look at the movie comes in the form of this pretty innovative and incredibly fun viral video which introduces us to the cast, including Matt Damon, Kate Mara, Jessica Chasten, and Micheal Pena, as the crew of the Ares 3 gets ready for its historic mission to Mars, which will prove to be quite eventful for Damon’s Mark Watney as he becomes stranded on the red planet. Chock full of charm, and providing fun facts about the crew, this has to be greatest piece of viral marketing I’ve seen in a very long time, and probably Scott's best use of the medium since Peter Weyland’s Ted talk used to promote Prometheus. Released: 27th November »

The Martian: the first trailer

7 June 2015 10:42 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Update: Matt Damon stars in Ridley Scott's movie of The Martian. And the first trailer has now landed.

Update:

Well, we didn't have to wait long. Here is the first full trailer for The Martian. The earlier promo, that we posted earlier today, can be found by scrolling down a bit further.

Here's the trailer though...

Please, please, please don't let them mess this one up. We're huge fans of Andy Weir's novel, The Martian, that tells the story of a man - Mark Watney - who ends up stranded on Mars, seemingly with no way back. The film of The Martian is arriving this November, and it's landed some impressive heavyweight talent, with Ridley Scott directing and Matt Damon taking the lead role.

We're guessing that there's an official trailer not far away, but in a manner not dissimilar to the promotion of Scott's Prometheus, before that »

Votd: First look at Matt Damon and astronaut crew in teaser for Ridley Scott’s ‘The Martian’

7 June 2015 10:40 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Matt Damon is certainly developing a habit for getting stranded on far out planets alone. Following Interstellar, in his next film The Martian Damon leads a crew of astronauts on a mission to Mars, only to get stuck in a storm separating him from his team, forcing him to survive and make it back to Earth.

Ridley Scott directs the sci-fi adaptation of Andy Weir’s book, and today we get our first look at Damon and his astronaut crew that also includes Kate Mara, Jessica Chastain, and Michael Pena. The film received this brief teaser of Mark Watney (Damon) introducing Earth-dwelling onlookers on social media to the team responsible for charting a course to Mars. Additionally, Scott spoke with Entertainment Weekly about Damon’s role.

“He finds he has a problem, and instead of him collapsing into terror—because he’s got 28 days to live – and that’s if »

First teaser footage sets up Matt Damon's Mars nightmare 'The Martian'

7 June 2015 5:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ridley Scott's "The Martian" is going to suffer some inevitable comparisons to things like "Gravity" and "Interstellar" and even "Prometheus" pre-release, and the real trick here is seeing whether or not the film can shake those comparisons. One of the things that helps in the footage that was released today is how warm and human it is. Andy Weir's book is a smart piece of hard science-fiction, but it's also a very human story, and it could be one of the most accessible things Scott's ever directed. For those who did not read the book, it's about what happens when an astronaut, played by Matt Damon, is left behind after a manned expedition to Mars. When his crew realizes what happened, they've got to decide if they can spend the resources to go back for him without dooming everyone onboard. It's a fun, brisk read, and a bit »
