Getting Lost in Space with The Martian
There’s been numerous movies about humans traveling to Mars. Red Planet, Mission to Mars, Stranded, and even Disney’s Rocket Man are just a few of the examples of astronauts landing in hot water while attempting to explore the fourth planet in our solar system.
Ridley Scott has taken on the challenge of creating a new Mars film, and has brought along a heavy-hitting cast to help him do so. Matt Damon stars as Mark Watney, an astronaut who is stranded on Mars after a storm forces his crew to leave him behind. The film also stars Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Jeff Daniels, Donald Glover, and Chiwetel Ejiofor. The film is based on the book of the same name by Andy Weir, and will be released in theaters on November 25th.
