I hope he has a lot of movies on his iPad.
Space is intimidating, Mark Strong is intimidating. Putting them together will probably make me cringe in fear for the entire time. Strong stars as Captain William D. Stanaforth, an astronaut that agrees to a solo-manned mission to Mars where he’ll presumably live for the rest of his isolated life.
Space and deep underwater are two places where I have no desire to venture to. Too many variables. Like the temperature, and the inability to, you know, breathe. Why someone would agree to travel millions of miles to a distant planet, and do it by oneself is above my pay grade.
I’m curious as to how extreme the film will go once Strong goes a little cuckoo. Maybe this expedition is a precursor before he slides into madness, changes his name to Pinbacker and goes on a murderous rampage in SUNSHINE. Regardless of what direction they choose, I have full confidence that he can pull off this one man show.
