The Martian Takes Shape


Pictures from the film adaptation of Andy Weir’s sci-fi thriller ‘The Martian’ emerged this week, showcasing Matt Damon fully geared up for the role of stranded (and loveably sarcastic) astronaut Mark Watney. The suit doesn’t look monumentally different from what we saw Damon in last year for his role in ‘Interstellar’, but it’s still cool to see him in uniform. Bonus shot of Kristen Wiig as Nasa spokeswoman Annie Montrose, too! For those who haven’t had a chance to read the book, it’s a great book that can pass as summer material if you don’t mind a heavy dose of science and NASA jargon tossed into your beach reads. Either way, be sure to keep an eye out for this one when it hits theaters this fall on November 27th.
