There’s a saying in “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” Ridley Scott, of late, has fooled me one too many times. One of the worst burns was the highly anticipated prequel/reboot/whatchamacallit of the Alien franchise “Prometheus”.
Since then the veteran filmmaker has delivered disappointment after disappointment. First with 2013 multi-starrer “The Counselor” and then just last year with “Exodus: Gods and Kinds”. Some talents lose their midas touch as they age. Is it time we start counting the “Blade Runner” director out?
The latest trailer for his upcoming Matt Damon starrer “The Martian” would have you believe otherwise.
Based on the novel by Andy Weir, The Martian stars Matt Damon as an astronaut who’s stranded on Mars and assumed dead after the rest of his crew manages to escape during a dust storm. With the next Mars mission scheduled to take place only 4 years later he’s forced to use his wits to survice on the desolate red planet.
Ridley Scott’s “The Martian” starring Matt Damon opens in Indonesia and Philippines on the 30th of September 2015.

When astronauts blast off from the planet Mars, they leave behind Mark Watney (Matt Damon), presumed dead after a fierce storm. With only a meager amount of supplies, the stranded visitor must utilize his wits and spirit to find a way to survive on the hostile planet. Meanwhile, back on Earth, members of NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring him home, while his crew mates hatch their own plan for a daring rescue mission.
