In The Martian, humanity’s manned mission to Mars is ended quickly when a storm on the surface of the red planet causes the crew to abandon the mission. Unfortunately, Astronaut Mark Watney has been stranded on the planet. Equipped with supplies that should only last him a month, Watney must find a way to survive and send a signal back to Earth to let them know he is still alive.
But don’t worry, Watney is ready to “science the shit” out of everything in order to survive.
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 a best-selling novel, and helmed by master director Ridley Scott, THE MARTIAN features a star studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.
