The film adaptation of Andy Weir’s hit scifi novel is on its way, and Empire has given us the first look at Matt Damon as Mark Watney, an astronaut who is accidentally left behind on Mars and must use his wits to survive. This basically means this is a pic of Damon in a space suit, but we’ll take it.

If for some reason you haven’t checked it out yet, The Martian is a great read, and Ridley Scott is directing the movie version. Damon’s everyman quality will make for a perfect Watney, who deals with his absurdly horrible situation with resourcefulness and a great deal of humor. Anyways, Empire has a couple more photos here, if you want to check them out. The Martian lands in theaters on November 27th.
