Ridley Scott’s mega-money crowd-pleaser The Martian is finally heading to Blu-ray and DVD in the new year, and we’ve got just the clip to celebrate.
Scott has always been a bankable director (just look at Gladiator or Prometheus) but no one was quite expecting his latest effort, a sci-fi survival tale about an astronaut stranded on Mars, to do quite as well as it did.
The Matt Damon-starring The Martian swept up at the box-office, clearing $500 million worldwide, knocking it easily into the year’s top ten highest grossers and making it Fox’s #1 release of the year.
On top of this, the film has received almost unanimous praise from critics and fans all around the globe, nudging it firmly into this year’s Oscar race as a potential favourite to pick up the coveted Best Picture gong. Despite a few iffy releases in recent years, Scott is clearly back on form here.
If you somehow missed it on the big-screen, The Martian will be launching onto home entertainment formats everywhere in January, so be sure to catch-up with one of the year’s best releases then.
In the meantime, here’s a clip to remind you of just how epic the film is. Excited yet?
The Martian will be released on digital formats on 25th January and on Blu-ray and DVD on 8th February 2016.
