Olsen Twins in Fuller House

Back in April, a big chunk of 90s nostalgia was announced to be revived when we learned Netflix had ordered Fuller House, a television series sequel to the hit sitcom Full House. Pretty much everyone from the original series was confirmed to come back in some capacity for this new series, with the exception of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. While producers had hoped that the duo responsible for playing Michelle Tanner, the youngest daughter in the family, would make an appearance, it doesn’t sound like it’s going to happen.

The Martian First Look

Last year, we saw Matt Damon in astronaut mode in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar (above). And now The Bourne Identity star is returning to space with The Martian, the adaptation of Andy Weir‘s novel of the same name. Alien director Ridley Scott is at the helm of the sci-fi drama which follows an astronaut (Damon) who was part of the first team to walk on Mars. But when a dust storm catches his crew off guard, he ends up left behind on the planet, with no way to signal his astronaut colleagues, or mission control back on Earth, that he’s still alive. I guess that’s what he gets for trying to leave Matthew McConaughey behind in Interstellar

Earlier this year we got an unconventional first look at the set of The Martian thanks to a Super Bowl bet that Damon made with author Andy Weir. (Find out more about that here.) But now we actually have an official first look photo from the film with Damon in full astronaut gear.

UPDATE: A couple more of The Martian first look photos have surfaced, and we’ve added them after the jump. Read More »
