Plot: The Martian stars Matt Damon as an astronaut who gets left behind on a Mars mission, after a terrible storm occurs, and his crew presume him to be dead.
Fun facts: The film was shot in Jordan, which has a similar coloured red desert to that on Mars.
Guest appearances: Donald Glover stars as a sleepy maths genius! Sean Bean also has a guest role, although I found his parts a bit cringe-y to watch (sorry Mr Bean!)Overall: I quite enjoyed some parts of The Martian (such as his potato growing!) But found a lot of the plot a little hard to believe, and would like to have seen more of Damon's emotional struggle instead of hearing so much about the rescue mission back on Earth - he seemed to cope rather too well!
