Mark Watney is a NASA astronaut stranded on Mars. He has thirty days of food rations and recyclable water. Unfortunately a rescue mission will take four years to reach him!
Matt Damon star’s as astronaut Mark Whitney is this film directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, BladeRunner). I was so intrigued by the films premise that i rushed out and grabbed a copy of the original novel the film is based on. You can read my review of the book here.

A viral video has also been released online that introduces us the crew of the Hermes space craft just before it leaves for Mars. Watch the questionable camera skills of astronaut Mark Watney below.
