Matt Damon stars as the title character in Ridley Scott’s latest sci-fi epic, The Martian. No, Damon is not really an alien life form from the red planet.
That’s the nickname he’s given when he is left for dead on Mars when a manned mission to the planet leaves him behind believing that he has perished.
Fox has released the first photos of Damon walking the lonely planet, along with our first look at co-star Kristen Wiig as well.
We have to say, this thing sounds fascinating.
When Damon’s crew learns that he has in fact survived, they launch an all-out effort to return to Mars to save him. Will they get back there in time?
Meanwhile, Damon must be extremely creative to survive all alone in the desolate landscape that is the harsh environ of the fourth planet from the sun.
Scott is back in the director’s chair for a sci-fi flick pretty quickly after his last one. After having decades between science fiction films before he returned with Prometheus, he returns with The Martian on November 25. Guess he missed space!
The Martian also stars Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Donald Glover and Michael Pena.
