The Martian is coming out in November, and it’s looking very promising!
The movie stars Matt Damon as a stranded astronaut on Mars who must survive until a rescue mission can be put together. The movie, directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Prometheus, etc.) is based on the best-selling novel by Andy Weir.
Here’s the the synopsis:
During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return
