Adapted from the best-selling novel by Andy Weir and directed by the indefatigable Ridley Scott, this has all the hallmarks of a compelling, thrilling movie as Matt Damon’s stranded astronaut fights to stay alive long enough for him to be rescued. The novel was a real page-turner, and there was a very dark line in humour that hopefully has translated well to the big screen. With a great supporting cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Sean Bean, let’s keep our fingers crossed that Scott and screenwriter Drew Goddard have made a pacy, heart-stopping thriller that will keep audiences glued to their seats.
