The trailer gave me goosebumps despite knowing how it ends. Also, for each scene shown I knew immediately what it was with reference to the book.
 
A great way to start the day
if you haven't read the book yet, do it. very easy read, hard to put down. I finished in an afternoon.

Outstanding intro the movie.
 
Meet the crew of the Ares 3 mission to Mars
The third human mission to the red planet and soon to be the first to leave a crew member behind on Mars.

Surprised we haven't seen a trailer yet for the movie, maybe around SDCC.

Today marks the 71st anniversary of D-Day when American troops stormed the beaches of Normandy, France – one of the largest seaborne invasions in history. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which, “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion. The cost in lives on D-Day was high. Today we remember those who fought valiantly for our country – thank you for your service and sacrifice. http://www.army.mil/d-day/
The U.S. Army remembers June 6, 1944: The World War II D-Day invasion of Normandy, France.

Enjoyed the weekend brunch. We had French Toast and the Shrimp Omelet, both were very tasty. The addition of a fruit bowl as a starter was a nice touch. Our waitress was very attentive and expertly engaged my 5 year old's questions.
