Matt Damon is stranded again on Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray.
In an announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox has released 'The Martian: Extended Edition' for Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray. The new cut features 10 minutes of additional footage.
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. 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.
The Ultra HD Blu-ray features 2160p video and a Dolby Atmos soundtrack. Meanwhile, the Blu-ray features 1080p video and a DTS-HD MA 7.1 soundtrack. Supplements include: Audio Commentary by Ridley Scott (Director), Drew Goddard (Writer, Exec Producer) and Andy Weir (Author of The Martian); Deleted Scenes; The Long Way Home: Making the Martian; Dare Mighty Things: NASA's Journey to Mars; and Journey to Mars 101 Q&A.
