When you watch The Martian, obviously you know it’s a big visual effects film. But many of the effects themselves are not as obvious.

Forget the giant, rotating spaceships or gargantuan red mountains of Mars. The hardest scene to write in Ridley Scott's "The Martian" was set inside a conference room, on Earth. Screenwriter Drew Goddard ("Daredevil," "Cabin in the Woods") who adapted this movie from Andy Weir's novel, had an...
