First photos from The Martian
  • Empire magazine has posted the first official photos from The Martian.

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic Image and video hosting by TinyPic Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    "Any survival story is fascinating,” expands [Ridley] Scott in Empire. “I think of it as a 21st century Robinson Crusoe.” The director, who, presumably because of permit problems on the Red Planet, doubled Jordan for Mars, also has Jeff Daniels, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig and Chiwetel Ejiofor aboard for the ride.

  • Matt was in Hong Kong for interviews for an upcoming film in recent days.

    The article mentions how nice Matt is on set to the crew and how he was looking forward to his family visiting and exploring Budapest.

    Re: Martian set

    That Facebook video of Hollywood journalist Návai Anikó gifting Matt is also on YouTube. I think this was posted a few threads back
    https://youtu.be/bmx4-rJaYck

    I can't seem to find the full interview.

    The Martian

    I've been keeping half an eye on Andy Weir's Facebook page to see if he would make a comment about the photos and last night he posted them and said this:

    "Photos from the production! Pretty cool, eh?
    By the way, these are production stills, meaning they are photos taken on set during production. They aren't retouched and don't have the benefit of postproduction that the movie will have.
    So don't panic about the blue sky, obvious plant life, or tire tracks in the background. These are all things that will be removed in post."

    And guess who commented? Buzz freaking Aldrin, that's who!!! He said his mission commander had recommended the book so he's going to read it! One of the great things I'm going to carry away from Matt's association with this project is learning about Andy Weir. His Facebook page is a delight. He also turned me on to the book "Ready Player One", which is also a great read.

    Alex Billington said that a first look reveal in a magazine usually means the trailer is a few weeks away.

    :-)

    The Martian Trailer

    The Martian trailer is finally coming!
    Just in case you are not familiar with, the following link is the film rating database site including the trailer ratings. Today among newly uploaded ratings was The Martian trailer.(Yes!) which means we can see it online either next week when Fox's Spy comes out or two weeks later with Jurassic Park opening. Here's the link.

    Re: Pedro Pascal's instagram

    No, definitely Matt, and called him 'My Blues Brother'. And Matt in a matching hat to Pedro, which is very unusual. The photo's back on the Hong Kong beach area where they went on the first visit to HK.

    Rumors

    Least Favorite Matt Film

    Off topic, but I'm curious what's everyone's least favorite Matt film (if you have one)?
    Mine is "The Good Shepherd". I just found it extremely slow moving and dry. My 2nd least favorite is "Syriana" his scenes were great but I found the whole film painful to watch.

    Re: Least Favorite Matt Film

    I quite liked the Good Shepherd. I've seen it quite a number of times. I think Matt's fantastic in it.

    For me probably Dogma. There were amusing high points but not enough to overcome the icky Kevin Smith factor. Also not too crazy about Syriana.
