The final three months are starting off huge with two big releases for the October 2nd weekend. On episode 83, LaF is breaking down The Martian and The Walk to let listeners know what they should go see this weekend. First, Matt Damon stars in the Ridley Scott directed film The Martian, as astronaut Mark Watney who must struggle to survive on Mars after being left behind and presumed killed. Early buzz for the film has critics and audience loving this film that was adapted from the best selling novel written by Andy Weir. Opening only on IMAX screens this weekend, is The Walk from director Robert Zemeckis and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as tightrope walker Philippe Petit.
