Really only one movie getting freshly released this week on a wide scale and that is The Martian.
Director: Ridley Scott (Alien/Gladiator)
Writer: Drew Goddard (Daredevil Netflix Series/Cloverfield/ Cabin in the Woods)
Starring: Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Donald Glover, Sean Bean, Michael Pena, Jeff Daniels
A movie inspired by the highly praised novel The Martian by Andy Weir. After a mighty storm on Mars, the crew evacuates, one member, Mark Watney is presumed dead. However, Watney survives and now he must use every bit of wit and ingenuity he has to survive and find a way to message Earth and come home.
This movie looked incredible, it has a lot of talent on and off screen and I expect it to really wow audiences. This is the movie for this weekend and I’d be absolutely stunned if it doesn’t own the box office (perhaps even next week’s box office as well). Looks like a great film, if you see it, I hope you enjoy it. I do plan to watch it, but may wait a little bit. When I do, I’ll be sure to review it.
IMDb: 8.5 of 7,103

Addicted to Fresno. A comedy starring Judy Greer was also released, but it isn’t doing very well in ratings so you’ve been warned.
Freeheld- a movie featuring Ellen Page, Julianne Moore, and Steve Carrell is now out. It is a biopic, drama, romance.
