We’ve caught Martian fever! If you haven’t seen the movie yet, check out the trailer below to see Matt Damon fight to stay alive on Mars.

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. On the contrary, Watney has survived, finding 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. He knows, however, that even if his survival was somehow made known, there is no conceivable prospect for a rescue.

The film also stars Jessica Chastain, Michael Peña, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover. See it in theatres now!
