The first glimpse of Ridley Scott's The Martian has been revealed, albeit little actual revelation.

Following a similar trend as 2013's Gravity, The Martian will focus more on the struggles by the astronauts themselves rather than the philisophical journey astronauts faced with last year's Interstellar, which also starred Matt Damon. The first batch of set photos and promotional photographs have surfaced online, thanks to Empire Magazine:
More on Scott's The Martian will be available in this month's issue of Empire Magazine, which goes on sale May 27th. The Martian lands in theaters on November 27th, 2015.

More about The Martian (movie)
During a human mission to Mars, astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after being caught in a fierce storm, and is left behind when the rest of the crew evacuate the planet and begin to head back to Earth. Watney finds himself stranded and alone, with only meager supplies and his ingenuity, wit, and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal home, despite knowing that even if his survival is made known there is no prospect of a rescue.
Directed by Ridley Scott, The Martian's release date is October 2nd, 2015.
