The Martian (2015)

It's a small niggle, but although Watney's faceplate gets smashed like that in the book, it never happens in the movie.

Jupiter Ascending (2015)

There's a shot of her going up a gravity lift which would have been a perfect trailer shot; this one is more 'Jupiter Strutting'.

The Lost Future (2010)


“Fighting for survival”

Directed by Mikael Salomon
Starring Sam Claflin, Corey Sevieras, Annabelle Wallis and Sean Bean

In a post-apocalyptic world, a tribe of human survivors scrape a living at Grey Rock, hunting sloth-bears and trying to avoid the Beasts, humans mutated by disease whose bite turns others into Beasts as well. Kaleb (Claflin) is a tracker and dreamer, overlooked in favour of the chief’s son Savan (Sevieras) by most, including Dorel (Wallis), the hypotenuse of a pointlessly forced love triangle.

When the Beasts attack their village, most of the tribe hide in a cave, while Kaleb, Savan and Dorel meet up with Amal (Bean), a member of a Brotherhood who retain some knowledge of the old world. He tells them of a powder which cures the Beast disease. If they can reach the city and find notes left by Kaleb’s father, they can make more of the powder, but the notes and the powder are guarded by a power-hungry tyrant, and only Kaleb can read.

Sean Bean doesn’t die. Continue reading The Lost Future (2010)
