Andy Weir’s hit 2014 science fiction novel, The Martian, found its way onto many, many best books of the year lists. And now it just might also find its way onto your best movie lists for 2015! With Ridley Scott directing, it looks to be something you won’t want to miss.
During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. 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.
