With Ridley Scott’s ‘The Martian‘ currently filming, it was only a matter of time before we had some shots start to pop up from the film and today we’ve got quite a few of Matt Damon on set as well as some of the rest of the cast. The film is based off of the Andy Weir novel by the same name. In it, we follow Damon’s character Mark Watney who is an astronaut that is believed to be dead after a sandstorm on Mars. After surviving the storm, he is now stranded on the planet with no means to call for help and desperately must find a way to stay alive in the cold harshness of this barren planet.

Needless to say, things aren’t going to be looking good for Damon’s character as the story progresses.

You can check out the new images which are primarily featuring Damon below:

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt 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, he 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. Based on a best-selling novel, and helmed by master director Ridley Scott, THE MARTIAN features a star studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.
