With the release of the first trailer for Ridley Scott’s The Martian, we geeks are all looking forward to the movie itself and whether Ridley Scott can rebound from some recent stinkers. We were beyond excited when we heard from someone who just this week was fortunate enough to attend a test screening of The Martian. This was a working print but it seems like the studio is interested in seeing what they have on hand, hence the early viewing. Given that within days of this test screening they moved the release date from November 25, 2015 to October 2, 2015, I’m guessing the studio is sensing a winner.
Find out what our agent on the inside had to say about the test screening after the break! Don’t worry–it’s spoiler free! Update after the break.
The Fox Intellectual Property department requested we pull down the notes we put up from the test screening. I guess that means it was a legit screening, so thanks for the confirmation, Fox! We’re friendly people over here at Gabbing Geek and even though we can’t see anything in the article that violates Fox’ intellectual property rights we’re still happy to help them out. I think moving the movie even earlier in the year giving it more time in theaters before Star Wars opens says enough.
