Breathtaking science fiction drama 'The Martian' landed at the iconic ODEON Leicester Square for its European Premiere.
Matt Damon, a.k.a. astronaut Mark Watney, left the space suit at home as he chatted to fans and reporters on the red carpet. He was joined by Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Chiwetel Ejiofor and director Ridley Scott as they sung each others praises and discussed their own chances of surviving on a desolate planet.
On the first manned mission to Mars, a freak storm at the landing site forces the astronauts to abort the mission. But they left Mark Watney, 'The Martian', behind.
With a four-year wait until another mission can be sent to rescue him, in a habitat built to last a month, Mark begins a desperate attempt to grow enough food to stay alive on a planet where nothing grows. When the rest of the crew learn of his survival, they plot a mutiny to bring him home.
