Directed by Ridley Scott, ‘The Martian’ is based on Andy Weir’s 2011 novel of the same name. The story is about a man (Astronaut Mark Watney) who is presumed dead and left behind on the planet Mars. He and his team were on a mission which goes horribly wrong when a fierce storm strikes. Whether he is able to survive the situation and come back to Earth forms the crux of the story. The movie features Matt Damon in lead role.
