We’re a little under a month away from the release of Ridley Scott’s The Martian, which may very well prove to be the director’s best film in years, if the trailers and TV spots are any indication. Everything we’ve seen so far (especially those viral videos) from Scott’s latest looks riveting and exciting, and while the latest TV spot is brief, it does offer a few glimpses of new footage.

Jason Bourne has a new nemesis to stab with pencils and swat with rolled-up magazines and desk lamps and whatnot.
It’s been eight years since Jason Bourne delivered his final ultimatum. That’s a long time between movie sequels. (What’s that? A Bourne movie that didn’t actually involve Jason Bourne? Nah, I’m pretty sure that never happened. Who would do such a thing?) And that long time is exactly why Bourne is finally coming back for a new movie starring Matt Damon (and not Jeremy Renner) and directed by Paul Greengrass.
So far, every bit of marketing for Ridley Scott’s The Martian has been pretty exciting — between the viral content, deliberately paced release of images and the trailers, someone at 20th Century Fox is well-deserving of a raise. The latest viral video features noted astrophysicist and Cool Guy™ Neil deGrasse Tyson in a fictional episode of StarTalk, examining the Ares 3 mission featured in The Martian.
Honestly, 20th Century Fox hardly needs to hype up the release of Ridley Scott’s The Martian any more than they already have — we’re sold. But today brings a new TV spot for the upcoming sci-fi film, which makes excellent use of Jimi Hendrix’s “All Along the Watchtower” while showing off a little bit of new footage.
A crew of insanely smart scientists travel to a barren alien landscape. After an interstellar storm, one of the crew is left behind and presumed dead. He is, however, very much alive, and slowly begins plotting his return. No, it’s not the story of Doctor Doom in the new Fantastic Four reboot...OK, it is, but it’s also the plot for the upcoming Ridley Scott sci-fi drama The Martian, and today we’ve got a brand new trailer for you.
The more we see of Ridley Scott’s The Martian, the more promising the film looks. Before the official trailer hit, 20th Century Fox released a viral video from the archives of the fictional Ares 3 spacecraft. A second viral video from the archives has arrived online, just as humorous and insightful — if not more so — than the first.
The more we see of Ridley Scott’s The Martian, the more we wish we could see this film, like, tomorrow. Two new official photos along with two new magazine covers give us yet another look at Scott’s sci-fi drama, featuring Matt Damon as a stranded astronaut — but when the scenery looks that beautiful, maybe you don’t need to be rescued.
Paul Greengrass’ upcoming fifth installment in the Bourne franchise continues to grow an impressive cast. Joining a returning Matt Damon are Julia Stiles and Alicia Vikander, while Viggo Mortensen was recently rumored to be in talks for a role as well. The latest big name to join the lineup is legendary actor and career curmudgeon Tommy Lee Jones.
It was only recently that the FBI moved on FIFA after a lengthy investigation into the corrupt sports organization. That happened just last month, followed by the retirement of FIFA president Sepp Blatter. Now, a month later, Warner Bros. is developing a film about American FIFA executive Chuck Blazer (yes, that’s his real name), with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon producing.
