The Martian

What's the story? Legendary Blade Runner filmmaker Ridley Scott directs Oscar winner Matt Damon in a gripping story of survival on Mars.

A manned mission to Mars goes disastrously wrong when a fierce storm leaves astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) missing, presumed dead. However, he has in fact survived – and when he wakes, he discovers that he is now stranded, alone, on the Red Planet. With only enough resources to last 30 days, Mark manages to get a message to Earth – and millions of miles away, both NASA and his own team decide to stage separate yet equally daring rescue mission to bring back the ‘Martian’.

Celebrated director Ridley Scott returns to the realm of sci-fi for the first time since his hit 2012 Alien prequel Prometheus with this gripping story of intergalactic survival. Oscar winning Matt Damon heads the outstanding cast, which includes Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Michael Pena, Kate Mara and Sean Bean.

What's the story? Emily Blunt stars in this dark, gritty and compelling thriller about the battle between drugs cartels and law enforcement on the US/Mexico border.

Kate Macer (Emily Blunt) is a dedicated FBI agent with an impressive track record of responding to escalated drug cartel activity on the border between the United States and Mexico. Her efforts bring her to the attention of task force leader Matt (Josh Brolin) who enlists her skills to help bring down a notorious yet elusive cartel figurehead, one responsible for the violence that has swamped towns on the Mexican border.

Teaming with Matt and the mysterious Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro), Kate soon realises that she's caught up in a bloody conflict beyond her understanding. Before long, she begins to question her loyalties, as well as those of her superiors.

The Devil Wears Prada actress Emily Blunt goes gritty in this compelling and atmospheric thriller from Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve, one that plunges audiences into a violent world where no-one can be trusted.
