“You won’t find a space epic that’s more fun to geek out at than The Martian.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
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. Based on Andy Weir’s best-selling novel, and directed by Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Alien), this gripping sci-fi adventure also stars Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Donald Glover. (Dir. by Ridley Scott, 2015, USA/UK, 144 mins., Rated PG-13)
