    Trailer

    Re: Trailer

    Very exciting!!! I enjoyed the trailer, but thought it gave too much away less of a build up than should have. I didn't realize the film would be 3D. Comparisons to Interstellar are popping up online, and people are hoping they can trust Dr Mann this time. LOL

    Matt looks great and visually the film does too!!! It's completely Damon driven vehicle so non Damon audiences may stay away (but there aren't many of them). His voiceover narration in the teaser trailer especially reminds me of THE INFORMANT, haha

    I like the poster a lot, and it reminds me a bit of the Elysium one that existed with a closeup of his eyes.

    The trailer is really interesting but says way too much.

    I have a question about The Great Wall: does Shawn Vance act in the moor is is he a stunt?

    Act in the movie or is he a stunt*

    I talked about Shawn in the comments section of the previous post. I don't think he's a stunt guy or an actor on the film.

    That link doesn't work for me.

    Ah, Richard Wilkins from local breakfast TV. One of the recent interviews conducted from Hong Kong (and footage of the ponytail). Thanks for the link.

    I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS!!! Yes, though. It gives too much away. I will wait to post it on my FB til there's a less thorough trailer. lOl.

    Martian interview

    Re: Martian interview

    And here's a much better interview that I completely missed - Matt mentions his hair and says Bourne filming will be in Europe. Thanks to B for the tip.

    Captcha problems

    I've been advised that captcha was causing some problems so I've taken off the requirement. Hopefully this works better for everyone.

    Do you want to see Matt without teeth? And yet he is cute!

    Re: Captcha problems

    Ah , yes , now it works. Thanks, Felicity.

    A comment I made a few days ago:
    I love the poster and the trailer is fantastic but I'm afraid it shows too many informations. I like that the movie surprises me!

    We got a pic of her with Matt on her instagram account a few weeks ago and now, here is the interview:

    Re: Captcha problems

    Thank you, Felicity, for fixing the captcha problem!

    Thanks also to everyone for posting all the cool stuff.

    I was iffy on the trailer at first but it has grown on me. I agree that it does make the movie look more generic than the source material, Considering the positive reaction, I guess that's what people want. Matt looks absolutely gorgeous, and that doesn't hurt! The trailer is very intense and has an almost sad quality, while the book has a lot of humor.

    Anyone interested in reading fan reactions can check out author Andy Weir's Facebook. Geek fans of the book (like me) are generally very happy with the trailer, and that's a good thing. A natural for ComicCon.

    I'm glad they moved the date. It's the same October slot Gravity had.

    Re: Captcha problems

    Thanks for your help, Gregory!

    Good times! Now I just hope the movie can live up to all the hype and positive expectations.

    I've now read the book four times (and, thank you, no, I am NOT alone in this odd behavior!). The geek cred on this book is HUGE. Astronauts, particle physicists, NASA and JPL people, Adam Savage from "Mythbusters", are all huge fans.

    I loved the trailer. I didn't read the novel. It looks amazing, and very interesting. I'm looking forward to this one. I don't know if it gives too much away, I think the most interesting thing is how it all developes, how the solves things, because it's sci-fi. I didn't really enjoy Interestellar.
    I liked the opening when it says it is our nature to look after each other, instead of it being individualistic. Also his optimism when there's no other choice. Exciting, and moving, and love the character's spirit.
    Waiting...

    Hi Cecilia, you bring up an interesting point, that you don't know if the trailer gives away too much. You haven't read the novel or script, so maybe for those of us who have, that is why we think we're seeing too much in the trailer. Good to know that for the unsuspecting eye who hasn't read book or script, that the trailer looks intriguing!!

    The trailer

    Yes, the "too many spoilers in the trailer" comments often seem to come from people who read the book or script. It's funny, because it's not like we don't know what's going to happen!

    I was just reading comments from someone in the industry who claimed all the research shows people are more likely to go to a movie if they have a good idea of what will happen, in spite of their claims to the contrary.
