Holy shit. I haven’t had my jaw drop from a trailer in some time. And I love it when that happens!

In a recent poll that was conducted by Variety, it appears that people are more excited to see Katniss Everdeen than Luke Skywalker. Initially I thought that was ludicrous statement.

Man, NASA sure has some fans in Hollywood, getting major screen time each autumn the last few years. Gravity, Interstellar and now The Martian have all bowed during the kick-off of awards season as big budget, visually thrilling counterprogramming to the typical modest and melodramatic-focused productions that comprise our “Oscar potential” appetites. What sets The Martian a part, perhaps unexpectedly, is its lighthearted nature and flat-out goofiness.
