The Martian

The Martian is the first directorial outing for Scott since Exodus: Gods and Kings at the end of last year, and he has assembled an impressive cast list.

Matt Damon is set to lead the cast and is joined by Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, and Sebastian Stan, who all play astronauts preparing for a mission to Mars.

In this brand new video you get to meet the cast as they emerge from ten days training isolation as they prepare for their Mars mission:

Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover complete a very impressive line up - I really cannot wait to see all of these great actors in action.

The Martian is set to be the 'must see' sci-fi of the year and follows on from the likes of Gravity and Interstellar, which have hit the big screen in the last couple of years.

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, Watney must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.

Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring 'the Martian' home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney's safe return.

The Martian is released 30th September.
