The Scoop – Matt Damon’s stuck in space, again. And he needs saving, again.
When a fierce storm during a manned mission to Mars leaves astronaut Mark Watney stranded alone on the red planet, it seems all hope is lost. But Watney is not the type to give up easily. Using his botany skills, his ingenuity and a lot of duct tape, he sets about staying alive until somebody can come and rescue him.
Help is only 140 million miles away. Back on Earth, NASA head Teddy Sanders (Jeff Daniels) and his colleagues – including mission director Vincent Kapoor (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and spokesperson Annie Monroe (Kristen Wiig) – try to figure out how to achieve the impossible.
Meanwhile, Watney’s commander Melissa Lewis (Jessica Chastain) and the rest of her crew are on their return voyage, still believing that they left him for dead. What will they do if they find out the truth?
For years, the Damaris Film Blog has been providing discussion guides on the latest cinema releases. And now, we’re excited to be back – refreshed, renewed, revitalised. Redesigned. Raring to go.
By popular demand, we’ve started republishing our back-catalogue of guides. There’s already something for everyone, from animated mega-hit Frozen to teen tearjerker The Fault in Our Stars to the mind-bending Interstellar. Do shout if there’s something in particular you’d like to see on the site – we’ll be getting more old stuff online very soon.
But enough of the old. What about the new? Your editor, Sophie, can’t wait to get back to the cinema and catch up with the best current releases. In the coming weeks, expect new-style discussion guides, as well as a whole lot of other film-related musings and fun.
I get lonely if no-one talks to me. Tweet @damarismedia or email [email protected] I’d love to hear what you liked about the old Damaris Film Blog, and what you’d like to see us doing in the future.
