The Martian, starring Matt Damon, directed by Ridley Scott and nominated for six Academy Awards, is now available on Digital HD – more than two weeks ahead of the DVD and Blu-ray release.
Based on the bestselling novel by Andy Weir, The Martian tells the story of Mark Watney (Damon) who is injured, presumed dead and left behind on Mars as his crew mates rocket back to Earth.
Watney must use all of his skills and ingenuity to figure out a way to stay alive long enough for a rescue mission to reach him.
While Watney fights for survival on Mars, the scientists back at Nasa are trying to figure out a plan to get him back but it could take years.
Watney, the botanist on the expedition, has to solve one problem after another and fight against the inhospitable surface of Mars to stay alive.
