The Martian
  • There is no new information (or a photo), but the Fox 2015 preview includes The Martian:

    Andy Weir’s phenomenal self-published book, “The Martian” also leaps from pages to screen. Directed by Ridley Scott, the movie is about an outer space adventure starring Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Jeff Daniels, Sean Bean and Kristen Wiig that follows the story of astronaut Mark Watney, one of the first people on Mars. He is left behind by his crewmates after a dust storm tears through the area. Watney has to find a way to survive after being stranded on the Red Planet.

    Happy New Year!!

    I'm looking forward to seeing Matt in The Martian & the next Bourne movie. I keep seeing a Matt Damon lookalike (he actually lives in the same units as me) and today he was walking up "Grant Street" as I was walking down towards him in the opposite direction. I couldn't help but smile thinking that the street name reminded me of grant.. wishes and Felicity Wishes :) Oh well, here's to wishful thinking that Matt is such a good actor he's not really married. lol. Happy New Year!! Love, Mel x

    Thanks, Marcia, and thanks to Felicity and everyone here who makes this such a cool and interesting place to visit. Here's a toast for a very successful year for MDNC and for Matt himself. Maybe next year will be even better!

    Happy New Year! (insert noisemaker sounds here)

    Happy new year all! An exciting year of movies and discussion ahead.

    It's taken a week or so but we've finally had our first Matt at a NY Starbucks sighting. Normality is restored.

    Re: Sighting

    And here's a pic of Matt at said Starbucks. Caption is amusing, should I ever meet Matt the whole awkward thing would be soooo me. Lol.

    Re: Sighting

    ooh Paula! I want you to meet Matt, (begin sarcasm) but I'd hope you would leave out the awkward thing after seeing that photo and comment the person tweeted. A nice photo with Matty would do just fine :) hehe

    Re: Sighting

    It is an awkward photo of Matt, but I agree with Gregory on the experience of meeting Matt, two smiles he gave me (one when he walked towards me, and then the other in the elevator when he was leaving) are worthwhile itself... and a memory you'll cherish for the rest of your life. Aww!! I hope you get to meet him too. P.S. Cheer up Matt (he looks like he needs a hug), Mel :)

    Come To Papa

    Just a heads up! The Come To Papa audio links I posted I think will expire in approx a week and a half (sound cloud is a paid site after a certain amt of posted data, and I don't plan to keep an acct) So be sure to give a listen or download before it's too late :)
