Attendees of the 53rd New York Film Festival have the opportunity to see a special, sneak peek of Ridley Scott's The Martian.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced the Sept. 27 screening via Twitter. The space odyssey will be screened in RealD 3D at the Alice Tully Hall.
The Martian, based on the Andy Weir book of the same name, stars Matt Damon as astronaut Mark Watney, who gets stranded on the red planet after being presumed dead by his crewmates, played by Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara and Michael Pena.
The star-studded cast also includes Jeff Daniels, Kristen Wiig, Donald Glover and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
The Martian premiered at the 2015 Toronto Film Festival, receiving excessively positive reviews, with The Hollywood Reporter's Todd McCarthy calling the film "constantly absorbing."
