The Martian is going to be one of the must see sci-fi movie this year. The first trailer will blow your Geek Mind. Ridley Scott directed The Martian based on the bestseller with the same title by Andy Weir.
Right now there is a lot of talk about manned Mars mission. The movie takes us into the future where this is actually possible. 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 crew-mates 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. Besides Matt Damon the cast of Martian features Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.
The Martian will be in theaters on November 25 making it a Thanksgiving Weekend release.
