Blu-ray Release: The Martian

The Martian Blu-rayToday, 20th Century Fox is releasing the science fiction blockbuster The Martian on Blu-ray.  A remarkable return to form for director Ridley Scott, the film follows ingenious astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon), who is left stranded and presumed dead on Mars after his crew is forced to leave without him in the wake of an unexpected storm, and must figure out a way to survive on the red planet.

Fresh off of winning Golden Globes for Matt Damon and Best Picture – Comedy or Musical, awards that are well deserved despite the film not really being a comedy, The Martian arrives in a sea of hype and deserves my highest recommendation.  Thrilling, visually stunning and above all else extremely entertaining, this is easily among my favourite films of 2015.  My full review is right here.

The Blu-ray also has over an hour of bonus features, including a gag reel and multiple featurettes.

The Martian is 141 minutes and rated PG.
