Based on a book of the same name, The Martian is a story about the last man on Mars. Matt Damon’s character, Mark Watney, is presumed dead by the rest of his crew and left behind on Mars. Directing this will be Ridley Scott and has a cast including Jessica Chastain (A Most Violent Year), Kata Mara (Fantastic Four) and Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaid).

The following video is a ‘viral’ marketing method showing behind the scenes of the mission to Mars. As the mission in the film will take roughly 150 days, and it is also roughly 150 days before the release we can expect more video logs keeping us up to date.

The first trailer for The Martian was also released.

The Martian is due for release in the UK on 27th November 2015.
