The world has been awaiting the return of Ridley Scott for years now. After making huge missteps like “A Good Year,” “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” and “The Counselor,” the Academy Award nominated director looks to possibly be roaring back with the adaptation of Andy Weir’s “The Martian.”
Starring Academy Award winner Matt Damon, the film is already at a disadvantage as the comparisons to films like “Gravity” and “Interstellar” are sure to be around. With an all-star cast that includes Oscar-darling Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Jeff Daniels (who also has “Steve Jobs” this year), Michael Pena, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.
Today, the new trailer has dropped and you can judge for yourself. 20th Century Fox will be distributing, who also has Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “The Revenant” and David O. Russell’s “Joy” due out later this year. If anything, perhaps this is the technical marvel that entices voters. You just never know.
“The Martian” opens in November.
[quote]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. Based on a best-selling novel, and helmed by master director Ridley Scott, THE MARTIAN features a star studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.[/quote]
