The trailer for The Martian movie is here and it looks awesome

June 10, 2015

GUYS. Guys. This movie looks so good.

You may remember that I read The Martian back in December and basically ignored my family  over the holidays in order to finish it. The book is fantastic and I was a little concerned about what they would do to it in movie form.

So much of the book is just Watney being kind of a jokey nerd as he, you know, tries to stay alive. How was that going to translate? Based on the short glimpse they give us (and the “science the shit out of this” line), I think they might have managed it.

Obviously we can’t say for sure until the movie comes out, but I’m cautiously optimistic and SO EXCITED.

  1. I’m looking forward to it. Andy Weir is the man.

      He really is. He did an interview type thing with the Nerdette podcast a week or two ago and it just confirmed that he’s awesome.
