What Ridley Scott Would Change About The Martian Since There’s Water on Mars [VIDEO]

Could NASA have timed their announcement any worse?


Ridley Scott must’ve felt like NASA was out to get him a little bit. Just a week before his sci-fi survival adventure The Martian was due in theaters, NASA made one of its biggest announcements ever: There’s liquid water on Mars. Right now.

When you’re making a movie about a man trying to survive on Mars, the presence of water is a game changer. So what would Scott change about the movie? Turns out, not a lot.

“It would have been a pity to have lost the scene where he blows himself up.” Real sympathetic, Mr. Scott.

(Although true.)
