The Martian
Director: Ridley Scott
Screenwriter: Drew Goddard
Cast: Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, Sean Bean, Sebastian Stan, Chiwetel Ejiofor
20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 141 Minutes

“It is good to renew one’s wonder, said the philosopher. Space travel has again made children of us all.” – Ray Bradbury, The Martian Chronicles

A classic work of twentieth-century literature, 1950’s The Martian Chronicles documents the exploration and colonization of Mars by humans fleeing an unstable Earth. Sixty-five years later, we’re still trying to reach the red planet.

Of course, there have been countless cinematic explorations of Mars: The Angry Red Planet, Robinson Crusoe on Mars, Total Recall, Mission to Mars, John Carter – and who could forget Mars Needs Women and Santa Claus Conquers the Martians? And while fantastical these films may be, none of them have transported me to Mars in a way that felt truly and undeniably real.

Enter The Martian. Written by Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) and directed by Ridley Scott (Exodus: Gods and Kings), The Martian is based on Andy Weir‘s 2011 novel of the same name. It is the harrowing story of the first human to colonize Mars, NASA astronaut Mark Watney, played by Matt Damon.

Simon Kinberg Is “Really Focused” On Getting ‘Fantastic Four’ Sequel Off The Ground
  |  @   |  

Fox being limited to two Marvel properties doesn’t give them much room to play around with as opposed to their competitors Marvel Studios. Unless they can map out their cinematic universe or make a deal like Sony did with Marvel, then Fox is relegated to using just the Fantastic Four and X-Men properties. The former had a reboot recently, which just tanked at the box office and was panned by critics and audiences alike. Then, Fantastic Four‘s director Josh Trank came out a day before the film’s release criticizing Fox for their interference and claiming the studio prevented everyone from seeing his vision of the film. Days later, numerous production problems were revealed, and that Trank tried to control what the cast would say during the film’s press junket. Even a major scene that was shown in trailers was omitted from the final cut.

With Fantastic Four earning a bad reputation and low grossing box office numbers, it was almost certain that there was going to be no sequel. But leave it to Simon Kinberg to hold on hope. While helping promote The Martian at the Toronto International Film Festival, the producer talked about being “really focused” on making a “second one.” More on the possibility of Fantastic Four 2 in the story below.
