Whilst the extended cut of Ridley Scott's The Martian was released in the US back in June, 20th Century Fox decided to delay its UK release until October 3. Better late than never I suppose.
The Martian was undoubtedly one of 2015's best sci-fi movies, so this is actually one of the rare instances where an extended cut really does sound like a welcome piece of news. If you live in the UK, head over to Amazon to pre-order your Blu-Ray copy of this longer version of one of Ridley Scott's best films in years.

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.
