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.

Ridley Scott has a tendency to talk up projects that seem to take forever to actually make it into development — Blade Runner 2, for example, took years of Scott discussing it publicly before Harrison Ford agreed to return and director Denis Villeneuve came aboard. Scott has spent the last few years talking up Prometheus 2 as well, but it seems like this one is actually happening sooner than we could have expected.

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.

For the second time in as many years, Matt Damon will be starring in a sci-fi film as an astronaut stranded all alone on a planet. In Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, Damon played Dr. Mann, whose mental health went a bit wackadoo after he was left alone in space. In Ridley Scott’s The Martian, Damon plays Mark Watney, an astronaut stranded on Mars and struggling to survive. To further invite comparisons, both films star Jessica Chastain. But Matt Damon would like to assure you that these films are very different.

15 Facts You Might Not Know About ‘Blade Runner’

by ScreenCrush Staff May 26, 2015 @ 10:57 AM
It’s hard to imagine anyone else besides Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard in Blade Runner. Even Philip K. Dick, who wrote the novel the film is based on said, “If Harrison Ford had not played that role, Deckard would never become an actual person.” But, it almost was not Harrison Ford. Director Ridley Scott was in talks with Dustin Hoffman to star in the film (alongside Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry), before both were recast, just three months before shooting began. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which tracks down replicants with Blade Runner!
