The Martian

British director Ridley Scott makes a triumphant return to sci-fi with this seven-time Oscar-nominated character study (produced by his UK-based company Scott Free) about an astronaut forced to survive on Mars. Alongside the impressive visuals, there is a warmth, wit and muscularity to the storytelling, perfectly matched by Matt Damon.





Presumed dead after a Martian mission, astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) must learn to survive on an inhospitable planet. Meanwhile, on Earth, his fellow astronauts and scientists at NASA concoct a plan to bring him home.
