Matt Damon stars in Ridley Scott’s science fiction film The Martian based on Andy Weir’s 2011 novel.
The story revolves around Astronaut Mark Watney stranded in Mars when his crew presumed him dead after a fierce storm. Although his specialty is botany, he becomes an all-rounder guy who uses his resourcefulness and wit to survive in the hostile place and signal people from Earth that he is alive. When he made contact, a team of international scientists go on a daring quest to bring him home.
