Matt Damon Is Stranded On Mars In ‘The Martian’

In: Donovan, Movies

The pedigree behind this film is beyond ridiculous. Director Ridley Scott has corralled himself a talented and star-studded crew for the sci-fi flick, The Martian, based on the 2011 novel of the same name by Andy Weir. Matt Damon headlines a cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Donald Glover, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Sebastian Stan.

The Martian Movie Synopsis

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return.

If the film is anything like Scott’s other forays in the genre, I expect it’ll be another blockbuster. Alien and Blade Runner are among my favorite films ever. The Martian lands into theaters on October 2. Check out the new trailer below.

If the master of horror Stephen King calls Crimson Peak terrifying, it’s safe to say the film will be one frightening ride. King attended an early screening and called it “gorgeous and just f*cking terrifying” and that it “electrified” him. With that kind of praise, I’m definitely intrigued.

Crimson Peak comes from the brilliant mind of Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim). It stars Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Hunnam and Mia Wasikowska. The film is scheduled to haunt theaters on October 16. Check out the trailer below.

Movie Synopsis

Set in Cumbria, in a crumbling mansion in a largely rural and mountainous region of northern England in the 19th century, young author Edith Cushing (Wasikowska) discovers that her charming new husband Sir Thomas Sharpe (Hiddleston) is not who he appears to be.

The 43-year-old director’s next big film boasts a star-studded cast which includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, Topher Grace, Wes Bentley, David Oyelowo and more. However, McConaughey is the only one featured in the first trailer for Interstellar. He narrates the teaser.

“We’ve always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count this moment… This moment when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known,” he says in the teaser. “I count this moment as our proudest achievement.”

The teaser trailer doesn’t reveal much more details about the largely-anticipated space epic than previously released. All that we know is that it’s influenced by reknowned physicist Kip Thorne and involves time travel, a wormhole, and alternate dimensions. Check out the visual below. Interstellar hits theaters on November 7, 2014.

A newly discovered wormhole paves the way for mankind to embark on an interstellar journey that surpasses any voyage ever attempted. Upon discovery, a team of explorers and scientists are assembled in an effort to use the wormhole to conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage. – Official Description

James Franco and Mila Kunis just can’t seem to get enough of each other. Should Ashton Kutcher be jealous? In between filming Date Night and Oz the Great and Powerful, the two filmed the drama Tar. It’s their very own cinematic trilogy.

The film chronicles different parts of Pulitzer Prize winner C.K. Williams‘ life told through his poems. Flashbacks of his childhood, his teens, college years, to when he meets and marries his wife, Catherine (Kunis) and the birth of his children and parenthood. The film is narrated by different versions of Williams (Franco, Henry Hopper, Jordan March, Zachary Unger), depicting the different aspects of Williams through the years.

Tar was written and directed by twelve New York University film students. The film also stars Jessica Chastain, Zach Braff and Bruce Campbell. It premiered on November 16, 2012 at the Rome Film Festival. Though no US release date has been announced, the first trailer just debuted. Check it out below.

Who Should Play Hillary Rodham Clinton?

In: Donovan, Movies

Rodham isn’t scheduled to hit theaters until the 2016 Presidential Election, but that isn’t stopping the film’s director from giving interviews about it and spilling some major casting details. James Ponsoldt chatted with The Independent about which four ladies he has his eyes on to play a young Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“Regardless of people’s political affiliation or how they feel about Hillary Clinton, you don’t find people who question the quality of her intelligence or her drive,” Ponsoldt told The Independent. “I want a wonderful actress who could embody that.”

The biopic will focus on Clinton’s time as a House Judiciary Committee lawyer in her twenties. She served as a counsel to the committee during the Watergate scandal. There are rumors that Kim Young II’s script includes many racy scenes. When the scribe was asked about it, he coyly replied, “It’s an evolving process so I don’t know. She was an attractive 26-year-old with an amazing future. And that’s our thematic focus.” I’m not sure if the world is ready for a 50 Shades of Hillary type of flick. Don’t you agree?

Two of the four supposed frontrunners for the political role of a lifetime are Scarlett Johansson and Reese Witherspoon. If I had to chose between these two ladies, I’d cast my vote for Witherspoon. Her role as Tracy Flick in the 1999 film Election is exactly what I’d picture a young Clinton to be. Find out the other two ladies below.
