Summary

Ridley Scott, arguably one of the great, and certainly one of the most iconic, filmmakers of our time is returning to the genre that has brought him the most success: Science Fiction. Adapting the wildly popular novel The Martian, Scott is setting out to answer one simple yet incredibly evocative question: Just how the hell can a man survive, alone, on Mars?

Show Notes

Ridley Scott, arguably one of the great, and certainly one of the most iconic, filmmakers of our time is returning to the genre that has brought him the most success: Science Fiction. Adapting the wildly popular novel The Martian, Scott is setting out to answer one simple yet incredibly evocative question: Just how the hell can a man survive, alone, on Mars?

Though despite this incredibly strong premise, the guys have some doubts. The trailer for the film seems to give away much of the plot, and Scott's previous Sci-Fi film, Prometheus, certainly doesn't inspire much confidence in his handling of the genre.

Will The Martian be the film to reignite Ridley Scott's career? 

Join Matt & Jon as they discuss the trailer for The Martian. Then - after the film has been released - they return to discuss the feature itself.
