The Martian

Help is only 140 million miles away.


The Martian
Based on the best-selling book, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm hits a manned mission to Mars, and is 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. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring ''the Martian'' home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney's safe return. This film is releasing in 2D and 3D, this is the 2D version.
