In a typically speedy turnaround, Ridley Scott brings to cinemas another film likely to be forgotten about a few months after release. Sorry 'bout it. The Martian is being spoken about as a potential return to form for Mr. Scott, though whatever form that is eludes me (are they referring to the good form he's demonstrated in maybe fewer than half the films he's directed over his career?). You might recall people referring to any one of his recent titles in a similar manner. Never mind all the speculation though, we'll see how this sci-fi, written by The Cabin in the Woods' Drew Goddard and starring Matt Damon, fares when released theatrically on the 25th of November in the US and on the 27th in the UK.
