Ridley Scott's "The Martian" Coming this November --His Best Ever?


During a manned mission to Mars, NASA Astronaut Mark Watney, played by Matt Damon, is presumed dead after a fierce sand storm and left stranded by his crew behind by his crew. But Watney, a biology genius and mechanical engineer, has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet when the Ares 3 mission is forced to evacuate their landing site in Acidalia Planitia due to a Mars-sized dust storm with high winds.

Watney is impaled by an antenna during the evacuation, destroying his EVA suit’s bio-monitor computer. His injury proves relatively minor, but with no way to contact Earth, Watney must rely on his scientific and technical skills to survive, growing potatoes in the crew’s Martian habitat and burning hydrogen to make water.

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. The movie is based on the must-read novel The Martian by Andy Weir published in 2012. This will be Scott's fourth sci-fi film since Alien, Blade Runner and Prometheus.
