‘The Martian’ premiere lands in London.

“The Martian” had its European premiere in London on Thursday (September 24) attended by a host of the film’s stars including Matt Damon, Kate Mara, Jessica Chastain and Chiwetel Ejiofor. We already know how astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) plans to survive on Mars after being stranded by his crew in The Martian, but the team at NASA has a Hail Mary strategy, too. While talking about “The Martian,” which has been critically praised since its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, director Ridley Scott and lead actor Damon both discussed their upcoming projects. Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor also greeted the crowds and revealed he would have taken a different career path if he’d seen the sci-fi film, directed by Ridley Scott, as a child. “I wish I’d seen this film when I was 13, I’d have been obsessed with it. In the latest clip from the Ridley Scott film, below, NASA administrator Teddy Sanders (Jeff Daniels) makes some big demands to his colleagues (Kristin Wiig, Benedict Wong) after disliking the stats he’s just heard about Mark’s status. “Get started, I’ll find you the money,” Teddy orders.

Scott explained that his “Prometheus” sequel, “Alien: Paradise Lost” will begin shooting in February, while Damon, 44, lamented the fact he is going to have to get into shape to reprise his role as Jason Bourne for the upcoming installment of the “Bourne” franchise, saying he’s “definitely fighting nature at this point.” Chiwetel plays Dr Venkat Kapoor, director of the troubled space mission, and admitted, as one of Earth-based cast, that he was “jealous of all the people who got to fly out into space.” Ridley, famous for space-themed films from Alien to Prometheus, said he was pleased to have received an picture from the crew aboard the International Space Station, who were treated to a special screening of the film. They weren’t laughing.” Kristen Wiig, who plays Nasa’s head of public relations Annie Montrose, laughed that she’d turn down the chance “because I’d be nervous I wouldn’t come back.”
