More Martian photos and reports
  • Entertainment Weekly and People both posted preview articles on The Martian with new photos, including:

    "Through Interstellar and watching the fun that Annie [Hathaway] and Matt [Damon] had playing astronauts, I thought I really want to do that," Jessica Chastain tells PEOPLE. "It was about two weeks later, Ridley called me and asked me if I would play an astronaut in his next film, The Martian – I jumped at the chance of course."

    And as for working with Damon in The Martian, Chastain can’t say much … but she’s excited for people to see the finished product.

    “I need to do another film with Matt, because we have very little scenes together in this film, and he is a pleasure to work with,” she said. “I have been a fan of his work for so long – everything from Good Will Hunting to The Informant. He is just brilliant, and I think his performance in The Martian is going to blow people away, to see him as they have never seen him. It is exciting for me to watch.”

  • The trailer for The Martian should be out shortly, as a Canadian rating for two PG-rated trailers has been released. Thanks to Lee for the tip.

  • Pedro Pascal has posted another Instagram pic with Matt in Sai Kung, Hong Kong.

    The Martian

    Andy Weir has posted another photo of Matt from the People article.

    People has a page devoted to the film, and Weir has a photo of that page on his Facebook. You can zoom in. :-)

    Re: The Martian

    Nice photo! I'm impressed you're still following Matt on twitter - too much spam there for me these days.

    But a brief look found this - Matt curating a one.org site re water:

    Re: The Martian

    you can cut down on the spam by putting a - before a word you want to remove from the search. so "matt damon -bourne", for example

    Thanks. My '-' list is huge but the spam is now out of control and I have no patience with the limited value of twitter any more.

    What is Shawn's relation to Matt? Who is he?
    Fingers crossed the trailer comes out with Jurassic Park next Friday.

    Re: Shanghai

    He might be an unofficial part of the Rise Movement team of trainers, led by Jason Walsh, but he's ex-Special Forces (Green Beret) turned freelance creative thinker and writer. I think he's mostly just good fun to have around.

    Re: Shanghai

    I'm just wondering, who get's to travel for months with the Damons like that.
    Freelance creative thinker and writer? What does that even mean?

    Re: Shanghai

    There's a good crew of friends who get to travel with him who have a real or occasional role including Johnny Cicco (part-time stand-in and long-time friend), a roving chef, the hair and make-up ladies, Jason the trainer, dresser etc. The professional entourage.
