The movie was released a couple of days ago and it is a must-watch highly-rated movie!
The Martian is actually an adaption from the novel titled ‘ The Martian’ by American Author Andy Weir. Movies nowadays are turning books, one by one, into reality. It is not such a bad idea after all because a book is indeed like a movie itself. But images dubbed with words are more powerful than just merely words printed on paper. It’s so powerful that you could bring you into another zone where you get that full immersive experience when you are watching in the theatre with a wide screen and surround sound.
In short, this story is about an American astronaut, Mark Watney who he becomes stranded alone on Mars and how he made use of all the resources to keep himself alive till he was being rescued.This film, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain, was released in October 2015.
Mars is actually the fourth planet from the Sun and it has a reddish appearance due to the presence of iron oxide. And it is about half the size of our Earth!

Water cannot be found on Mars due to the low atmospheric pressure so in other words, no one could practically survive on Mars unless you are smart enough to create your own water like Mark Watney.
