Set in 2050, the film rotates around a mission commander Kate Bowman, Carrie-Anne Moss, who's forced to stay aboard her ailing spaceship as her crew fights for survival on the surface of Mars.
Led by Robby Gallagher, Val Kilmer, the weary astronauts not only have to cope with the usual dwindling supply of oxygen, this time there's a malfunctioning robot-turned-predator and the pent-up human emotions that have been brewing during the yearlong journey to the planet.
