Matt Damon is Stranded on Mars in New Images from The Martian
We've loved everything we've seen from The Martian so far, and fully expect it to be an exciting, visually spectacular space opera/survival film. And in the new stills from the movie, courtesy of Total Film (via Screenrant), the visual effects are on full display, and they don't disappoint:

Both images take us to the Red Planet itself; the first takes place during the dust storm that ultimately strands Mark Watney on Mars without any means to phone home, where the other two figures are presumably other members of his crew, and the second depicts Watney all by his lonesome, watching a beautiful but intimidating Mars sunrise.

Total Film also released concept art from director Ridley Scott:

The official synopsis for The Martian reads:

Opening quote
During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney 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.
Closing quote
