Mark Whitney, part of the ARES III mission to Mars, is believed to be dead after an accident during an emergency evacuation of the planet. Problem is, he isn’t and help is 140 million miles away!
‘The Martian’ is the latest film from director Ridley Scott (Alien, Prometheus) and stars Matt Damon as the astronaut, Mark Whitney. As you can see from the trailer, he has to survive fours years with only enough supplies designed to last just over a month.
I’ve already read the original book by author Andy Weir (The Martian – Book Review) and I cannot wait to see how this film adaptation turns out.
