The cast of The Martian, led by Matt Damon, was in London tonight for the UK premiere. So far the reviews for The Martian have been quite strong. Sarah saw it at TIFF and liked it a lot and Sarah’s hard to please. But when I saw her after the screening, she wasn’t angry at all about spending two hours in the theatre watching it. Full Story

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck used to have a show called Project Greenlight, in which they and a panel of filmmakers chose a script and a director and set them loose with a small budget to make a movie. It aired three seasons on Bravo from 2001-2005, and the only movie I remember from it is the hilariously bad horror movie, Feast. Full Story

The last time I outright enjoyed a Ridley Scott movie, no reservations, no qualifications or conditions, was American Gangster in 2007. Since then he’s given us Grimdark Robin Hood, the space-magic bullsh*t of Prometheus, and the super messy but ambitious The Counselor, plus some other stuff no one cares about (AHEM EXODUS). Full Story

The Martian premieres tonight at TIFF. Sarah saw it today but she’s got four films on her schedule so her review for it will be posted on Monday. Her review for Jake Gyllenhaal’s Demolition is coming up soon. Ahead of the gala, Matt Damon and the cast of The Martian were at the Lightbox for the press conference this afternoon. Full Story

A new trailer for The Martian has just been released. Normally I’m not big on space movies, like Gravity. Because all that open …space-ness? Scares the sh-t out of me. But then again, I can’t “science the sh-t” out of anything so being helpless and useless is basically my default position. Full Story

We’ll start here – which is what was supposed to be the only news story about Ben Affleck last night and today, and for a change, a good news story. The premiere of Project Greenlight season 4, The Leisure Class for HBO, a project that Ben and his bff, Matt Damon, have worked on together for many years. Full Story

Yesterday I expressed annoyance with Zoolander 2 for wasting everyone’s time (and Paramount’s money) with a teaser trailer that was nothing. If you can’t illuminate some aspect of the film itself, don’t bother—wait until you actually have something to say about your movie before opening your digital mouth and demanding our attention. Full Story

My head is exploding right now. Not because Matt Damon has a ponytail (although that’s some impressively thick hair, non?). But because Matt Damon and Andy Lau are shooting a movie together. Matt Damon and Andy Lau are at a press conference together. Matt Damon and Andy Lau are laughing together. Full Story

The Martian: Also NOPE

I called Everest a big bag of NOPE after watching the first trailer, and after sitting through Fox’s three minute-plus first trailer for The Martian, I am adding this movie to the NOPE bag, too. Directed by Ridley Scott, The Martian is based on Andy Weir’s novel (adapted by Drew Goddard) about an astronaut who gets stranded on Mars after a manned mission is forced to abort. Full Story

You know anyone who doesn’t like Matt Damon? Everybody likes Matt Damon, right? Almost everybody has their detractors. But you never really hear anyone go off about how they can’t stand Matt Damon. Matt Damon and Adele. Here’s Matt Damon with wife Luciana at the ACE Awards on Saturday (George Clooney was there too). Full Story
