Hey guys, Jana here,
Get ready for a wicked space adventure starring everyone’s mathematic brain-child, Matt Damon when ‘The Martian‘ lands in theaters on October 2, 2015! The film is based on a top-selling novel by Andy Weir and brought to amazingly realistic life by none other than master, legendary and beyond talented Ridley Scott (‘Alien‘, ‘Blade Runner‘).
Besides Damon, the feature stars Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Donald Glover. The storyline seems like it could be just around the corner from happening, which amps the thrill level up more than a notch or two. During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (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.
