Among the news that I sort of missed while on Memorial Day holiday? The fact that Madonna pushed the start of her “Rebel Heart Tour” (perfection will require a little more prep time). The unsurprising fact that neither Olsen twin will take part on Netflix’s Fuller House. And the fact that the world needs to get ready to see Matt Damon lost in space (again).
Nah, Damon isn’t reviving NASA – but he is starring in The Martian.
Directed by Ridley Scott and based on the 2011 Andy Weir novel, the film will center on Mark Watney, an astronaut (Damon, of course) left for dead and behind in Mars, where he struggles to stay alive for 28 days...until rescue comes?
Everyone is in this one. Everyone from Jessica Chastain to Chiwetel Ejiofor to Fantastic Four’s Kate Mara to the Winter Soldier himself, Sebastian Stan, to Kristen Wiig and Jeff Daniels and Ant-Man’s Michael Peña.
The Martian will be out on Nov. 25.
