The Martian 2 Movie Sequel (2017) preview, news & rumors!

April 20th, 2016 by Mike Coughlin

 

Ladies and gentleman, we are excited to give you the latest and greatest news on The Martian 2 (2017). The sequel to the surprise sci-fi hit, The Martian, The Martian 2 starring Matt Damon will be coming sooner rather than later. Please, allow us to tell you just a little bit about what we know. Because we know movies. We know movies like Grown Ups 3, Looper 2, X-Men National Treasure 3, Jumper 2, Hancock 2. Yeah, so we know movies!  BOOM!

 

The Martian 2 Director is…

 

Ridley Scott will direct The Martian 2. This hasn’t been publicly made official but look at the man’s career: he directs Alien then comes back and directs Prometheus, an Alien prequel, and is now going to be doing another Alien film, that will be a sequel to Prometheus but still a prequel – a sequel to a prequel. If that wasn’t enough, Scott is going back to the well of Blade Runner as well. The man has reached the stage of his career where he’s just going to recycle his ideas and coast on past success. If it worked once, he’ll make it work again. It’s a lock that Ridley Scott directs the sequel to The Martian.

The cast of The Martian 2 (2017)

 

Matt Damon is coming back (after doing Jason Bourne). The Martian ended with Damon having returned from Mars and thus no longer a martian. When he returns, he’ll be rejoined by Kristin Wiig because what else does she have to do? Rumors have it that Ben Affleck will make an appearance in The Martian 2 as he continues to prove to everyone that he’s actually talented. There’s talk of a holographic appearance from the late Steve Buscemi but we’re still waiting on him to actually die before using him as a ghost. No word on if he’s sick.

 

 

The Martian 2 Trailer

 

The trailer for the Martian 2 will look something like this:

 

 

Yes, that appears to be the trailer for the first The Martian but if you watch it backwards you’ll get an idea of where they’re going with things because…

 

 

The plot of The Martian Sequel

 

The plot for the sequel to The Martian is as follows: Having returned home, Matt Damon finds he misses Mars. He watched another brave soul go off and become a martian. Inevitably, this will have repercussions. Damon will not be able to cope without his Mars – it’s his! He will hijack a space shuttle and fly to Mars because he knows, deep down, something isn’t right. He has a connection to Mars now. While there – and these are rumors but we feel confident in them – he will discover that all the plants and stuff he grew have developed at a rapid rate and Mars now looks like a jungle. The red planet is now green! No one ever understood that “life will find a way.” Now sentient, Damon will fight off newly evolved martians – all while struggling with the fact that deep down he wishes to join them.

The Martian 2 Release Date

 

Simple enough!

 

 

The Martian 2 Release Date

 

The Martian 2 is scheduled to come out in June of 2017, with a release date for the sequel to The Martian tentatively June 14, 2017. Scott will burn through the Alien and Blade Runner stuff like it’s no one’s business next year and Damon’s career is kind of in a lull except for his begging to become Jason Bourne again so they’re going to try for a quick turn around. After the success of the first film, the studios are going to aim for a big summer blockbuster this time.

 

 

The sequel to The Martian will be written by

 

The Martian 2 will be written by Ridley Scott, Matt Damon, and Ben Affleck (who will just throw his name on it at the end and collect an Oscar). They might bring in Andy Weir who wrote the book that the first movie was based on. Apparently though, Drew Goddard, who drafted the first screenplay based on Weir’s book won’t be returning as he hates Damon. Goddard was disgusted that he wasn’t allowed to play the lead and resents Damon to this day. What a jerk.

 

 

Projected The Martian 2 Box Office

 

The Martian was a smash at the box office and studio executives who spoke off the record have told me that they expect The Martian 2 box office to be huge: somewhere in the neighborhood of $500-$700 million, at least.

These are maybe from the first film but one source said they already did some pre-production shooting of Damon because they want him to look scraggly for the second film which is part of the reason for the 18 month delay.

[…] Neill Blomkamp better come back for the District 9 sequel! He went on to make Elysium, which I enjoyed but was ultimately disappointed by. I had super high expectations, and it didn’t quite deliver, even with Matt Damon on board. Then he made Chappie, which I have yet to actually see, even though it looked good and had Hugh Jackman in it, and I’d watch him read the phone book so long as he had Wolverine hair and claws. And Blomkamp was planning a sequel to Aliens, but that’s been put on hold while Ridley Scott makes a Prometheus sequel (even though he should be making The Martian 2). […]

Plot for Martian 2? It goes like this;

He’s back, and as we saw, teaching. Except now he’s a rock-star, replete with groupies, demands for interviews, game shows, etc. He is recruited to head the Mars Astronaut Training Program at NASA and as a consultant with the private contractors for the Mars missions. He engages his job with gusto and enthusiasm. As the next mission approaches, however, he discovers shortcuts and deficiencies implemented by NASA that could put the astronauts in danger that he can fix only by extreme insubordination. Sure enough, although he backs down and accepts the directives from NASA to be quiet or be replaced, during the mission, the problems he predicted materialized. The rest of the movie follows his desperate attempts to save the mission crew while saving his career. The two goals are incompatible. He must work to save the crew and resist NASA attempts to stop his efforts.

There’s no way it will be out Summer 2017. That’s only six months away. It probably isn’t even written yet.
