Be­ing alone and hav­ing to sur­vive in an in­hos­pitable, strange and dan­ger­ous place on earth can be a daunt­ing, scary strug­gle. Imag­ine, then, be­ing aban­doned on an­other planet. This, in essence, is the plot of the ex­cit­ing and thrilling Ri­d­ley Scott film, The Mar­tian.

Dur­ing a manned mis­sion to Mars, as­tro­naut Mark Wat­ney (Matt Da­mon) is pre­sumed dead af­ter a fierce storm and left be­hind by his crew who re­turn to earth. But Mark sur­vives and finds him­self stranded on the hos­tile planet. With only mea­gre sup­plies, he must draw upon his in­ge­nu­ity, wit and spirit to sig­nal earth that he is alive. Will he be res­cued be­fore he starves to death? The Mar­tian is now show­ing in cine­mas in the UAE.
