“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

The Fantastic Four Michael B Jordan Human Torch with Simon Kinberg

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.

Neil deGrasse Tyson The Martian Promo

A new promotional video has been released for The Martian, the upcoming sci-fi drama directed by Ridley Scott and starring Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Sebastian Stan, Jeff Daniels, Kristen Wiig, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sean Bean, Mackenzie Davis, Aksel Hennie, and Donald Glover.

Instead of a trailer, the video is presented realistically, as a special episode of StarTalk with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson talking about mankind finally visiting Mars and the upcoming mission there that we’ll see in the movie. It’s basically like an episode of Cosmos…from the future!

Matt Damon in The Martian

Fox has released the second trailer for Ridley Scott‘s The Martian, starring Matt Damon as an astronaut stranded on the planet Mars after he was thought to be dead. Drew Goddard wrote the script, which is based on Andy Weir’s novel of the same name. The new trailer provides us with all sorts of brand new footage with gives us more context as to how he does the impossible, use the very limited resources and science he has to create sustenance. But it will all be pointless if he doesn’t find a way to make contact with NASA, for which he also has limited resources. Even though he is millions of miles away and four years from Earth receiving his message, he does make contact. However, the surviving crew must decided whether to go back home as NASA ordered or mutiny and go on what could be a suicidal rescue mission.

Check out the newest trailer for The Martian here below.

‘Fantastic Four’: Description Of The Thing’s Deleted Action Set Piece

Thing in Fantastic Four (2015)

This might sound like a severe understatement, but 20th Century Fox’s contractually obligated Fantastic Four reboot is not really performing to the expectations of anyone except perhaps those of us who have followed its troubled development for years and viewed the underwhelming trailers.

The studio’s latest attempt to launch their other major Marvel Comics property as a sequel-ready franchise to rival their X-Men series has been slaughtered by critics, pilloried by audiences, and right now, nothing short of the news that Fox has entered negotiations with Marvel Studios to retake ownership of the First Family of the House of Ideas’ cinematic destiny will satisfy the Fantastic Four’s furiously frothing fan base.

More ‘Fantastic Four’ Production Problems Unveiled; Josh Trank Lawyers Up

The Fantastic Four movie 2015 Miles Teller as Reed Richards Mr. Fantastic

There is no hiding the fact that Fantastic Four did not meet anyone’s expectations, unless those expectations were failing ones. Fox stands to lose up to $60 million dollars due to its underwhelming $26.2 million dollar debut, and things could get worse if they continue to progress the way they are now.

Because of director Josh Trank‘s volatile and revealing tweet, we were shown the ugly side of studio interference. But it’s not as though Trank is without blame. Throughout the production of the film, the filmmaker has been hostile to both the cast and creative team, even to the homeowners who rented the house to him. Through great effort, PR tried to make it seem as though there was no validity to any of these rumors with exclusive interviews of Trank and Kinberg sitting together as if they were friends, but word was getting out, and there was no stopping the inevitable.

The Fantastic Four reboot then confirmed what we all knew, there was a huge shift in tone and wigs in the final third act of the film. On Monday, we learned of the many problems that plagued the production of the film were aired out. Now a new report is out revealing just how problematic Trank has been during the filming process, and it is supporting previous reports of his strange behavior. More on this below.

Josh Trank Tweets ‘Fantastic Four’ Frustration, Deletes Soon After

Fantastic Four Header

We’ve all heard in the past about studios interfering with directors on the direction of a film. With most superhero films being in a shared universe, these directors are pressured into being a part of something they don’t really want to be a part of. Alan Taylor expressed his frustrations while filming Thor: The Dark World. Joss Whedon didn’t get to add any of the characters he wanted to in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Edgar Wright directing Ant-Man didn’t work out. But this doesn’t apply just to films from Marvel Studios.

With Josh Trank‘s reimagining of Fantastic Four out in theaters, the film is getting hit with wave after wave of negative reviews, and as of this post has a 10% on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer. Not entirely unexpected given the harsh criticism the film received from the first trailer and the behind-the-scenes allegations. So far everything points towards Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation taking the top spot at the box office this weekend, which is disappointing news to Fox and everyone else who worked on Fantastic Four.

While there will be plenty of finger pointing when the expected disappointing numbers come out, Trank felt that it was necessary to clear the air by doing some major backpedaling on his own movie. And then he proceeded to be muzzled. More on the story below.
