On Saturday, Filmention posted a first look at Matt Damon in Ridley Scott’s latest film The Martian. Today, thanks to People Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, and Empire, I’ve got my hands on ten new images from space thriller.
Based on the Andy Weir novel, astronaut Mark Watney (Damon) is expected to die after a manned mission to Mars goes terribly wrong. With his crew thinking he is dead, they leave him in the wake of a storm. With Watney being short on supplies and having the battle the elements, his crew must act quickly to pull off a daring rescue mission that may cost all of them their lives.
Starring alongside Damon is his Interstellar co-star, Jessica Chastain. She had this to say about getting the chance to be an astronaut this time:
“I got to see all the maps of Mars, and participate in an 3D virtual reality perspective. It was incredible, as soon as I put the glasses on, I felt like I was really there on Mars. Whether I looked left or right, it felt like I was there with actual images all around me. It was a fantastic way to imagine what it would be like to be on that planet.”
