*** Update ***
FOX has announced that due to brisk views of the below trailer, the studio will move up the release date for The Martian from November 25th to October 2nd. So cancel your family’s plans to view Matt Damon’s hardship between servings of mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. In hindsight, this is a good call. After all, Thanksgiving Week is best reserved for stranded airline passengers, Congress packing it up early and calling it a year, and this gal. You don’t want to get in Katniss’ way.
OK, think of Tom Hanks in Cast Away (2000) meets Sandra Bullock in Gravity (2013)…
Not sure if Matt Damon’s character is talking to us–the audience–or himself. Or perhaps, just maybe, astronaut Mark Watney is talking to his new crop of
marijuana tomato plants. Stranger conversations have taken place. We all remember this guy.
You can catch this currently unrated, science fiction fantasy in theaters this Thanksgiving. Nothing helps put turkey down the hatch better at a holiday celebrating thankfulness with family, than seeing Damon squirm on the Red Planet 4 years away. Karma, baby (see Interstellar).
