There are plenty of people who are already sold on The Martian, the latest sci-fi drama from Ridley Scott. It’s one of our 30 Movies to Be Excited for Before the End of 2015, and the most recent trailer really showed how good it looks.
But 20th Century Fox still has a little over a month to go before the film hits theaters, and they’re continuing their impressive viral marketing campaign with yet another cool video focusing on the crew of the Ares 3, another manned mission to the surface of Mars. This time, famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson examines the upcoming mission in the style of the recent Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey series.

We’re well past the midpoint of the year, and we’ve already delivered our list of the Top 10 Films of 2015 So Far.

A new trailer for Ridley Scott‘s adaptation of the novel The Martian went online earlier this week, but as with the first trailer, this one seems to lean pretty heavily on details some viewers might prefer to get from the movie itself. But for those who want to see more from the film without having too many of the story’s beats mapped out, we’ve got a new batch of The Martian images, mostly in high res, to show off the meticulous care that was put into the film’s costumes and sets.
In addition, you can watch a short video shot earlier this week that condenses a Q&A about the film, featuring Matt Damon, Ridley Scott, author Andy Weir, and participants from NASA. Read More »

While we wait to see what happens with Prometheus 2 and Alien 5, here’s a Ridley Scott space adventure we definitely know is coming in our near future. The Martian stars Matt Damon as astronaut Mark Watney, who’s presumed dead and left behind after a dust storm hits on Mars. But he’s very much alive, and now all he has to do is wait for rescue.
The problem is, help is 140 million miles and four years away — and he’s only got the resources to survive on Mars for a few weeks. As he puts it, he’s “gonna have to science the shit out of this.” Watch The Martian trailer after the jump. Read More »
Before the first trailer for Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi drama The Martian debuted, 20th Century Fox teased the film with a viral video from the video archives of the Ares 3, the latest mission to Mars.

From the video it’s made pretty clear that Damon has no problem being stuck by himself for 10 days, with the most pressing question he has upon emerging being about Aquaman’s abilities. And honestly, it’s a perfectly valid question. Watch The Martian viral video after the jump! Read More »
