During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return. Based on a best-selling novel, and helmed by master director Ridley Scott, THE MARTIAN features a star studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.

Cast and Filmmakers Talk Creating 'Not So Union' and Playing Actors as Actors
A night that began with rain was not nearly close to coming in between the red carpet and the actors and filmmakers of a new and highly anticipated web series, Not So Union. Co-created by actors Michael Steger (CW's 90210) and Brandee Steger, this seven-episode series follows the lives of six non-union actor friends living and aspiring to work in Hollywood. Iconic Chica got to interview some of the actors and filmmakers of the show, including celebrity guest stars during their red carpet event.
As we prepare for the highly anticipated (at least for a lot of us!) sequel to the MAZE RUNNER, there's a few things we've yet to be familiar with. We've got an animated clip which explains the flare virus happening in MAZE RUNNER: THE SCORCH TRIALS.
MAZE RUNNER: THE SCORCH TRIALS
In this next chapter of the epic “Maze Runner” saga, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers face their greatest challenge yet: searching for clues about the mysterious and powerful organization known as WCKD. Their journey takes them to the Scorch, a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles. Teaming up with resistance fighters, the Gladers take on WCKD’s vastly superior forces and uncover its shocking plans for them all.
Starring Zoe Kravitz, Forest Whitaker, Tony Revolori, Quincy Brown, Kap G, and directed by Rick Famuyiwa, DOPE is back in theaters this weekend. If you haven't seen it, you're in for a real treat. So grab your pound cake (it will make sense after the movie) and enjoy an entertaining film.
A critical hit and audience favorite out of the Sundance Film Festival, in DOPE, Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is carefully surviving life in a tough neighborhood in Los Angeles while juggling college applications, academic interviews, and the SAT. A chance invitation to an underground party leads him into an adventure that could allow him to go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself.
