The Martian directed by Ridley Scott depicts an astronaut’s struggle to survive on Mars after being presumed dead and left behind by his crewmates. ILM’s London-based effects team joined the production late in the schedule to contribute a number of shots depicting astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) operating a rover vehicle around on the Martian surface.
