Martian poster, previews

  • A preview of The Martian from the website of the Toronto Film Festival, which also notes the running time is 130 minutes and the rating is 14A in Canada (PG-13 in the US):

    An interplanetary epic of ingenuity, heroism, and high adventure, The Martian is that rare work of science fiction that's bursting with optimism.

    A galactic spin on Saving Private Ryan (in which Damon played the titular role), The Martian pays thrilling homage to those brave souls who make profound sacrifices when destiny calls upon them. Enormously entertaining and intelligent, the film is an ode to humankind's enduring thirst for discovery and our fascination with far-flung worlds. And it all unfolds in some of the most spectacular 3D imagery yet to have graced the cinema.

  • Chiwetel Ejiofor has seen a final cut - from Den of Geek, thanks to Rose:

    "Have you seen any of The Martian yet?"
    I’ve seen the film. It’s amazing. I think Ridley is extraordinary. And Matt Damon I think is absolutely fantastic in the movie. He’s a tireless actor. So yeah, I’m really excited for people to see it. It’s a beautiful film. Beautifully done. And a great book as well."

  • Matt provided some Bourne 5 plot and location details - via Buzzfeed. The film starts production this week in Tenerife:

    he Bourne Legacy continued the franchise with a new character and a new star (Jeremy Renner) in 2012, but next week, Damon will start production on the fourth film featuring Jason Bourne, due out in July 2016.

    “We always looked at those movies as really about the Bush presidency, and so we kind of had to wait for the world to change,” Damon told BuzzFeed News of the lag time between films during an interview about his upcoming movie The Martian. “What does the character have to say?”

    “Without giving too much of it away, it’s Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world,” Damon said. “It seems like enough has changed, you know? There are all these kinds of arguments about spying and civil liberties and the nature of democracy.”
