One of the best sci-fi books ever is getting the silver screen treatment, thanks to Ridley Scott (the guy who did Blade Runner amongst other awesome flicks) and Matt Damon in the lead role. The rest of the cast? Stellar in every way, ranging from Jessica Chastain to Michael Pena to Kate Mara to Donald Glover. Watch this trailer--we're pretty sure 99% of people who see it will want to see this movie.
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.
