'The Martian' sky rockets to top of box office

08th October, 2015

Ridley Scott’s The Martian was always going to be hotly anticipated, but now it has also made the top of the international box office. The ONSIGHT team is delighted to have worked with 20th Century Fox to support both production and post production.

Based on Andy Weir’s much praised novel, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after he is left behind during a manned mission to Mars that goes wrong.

Watney’s strength and ingenuity enables him to signal to Earth, where NASA and international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crew plots an epic rescue.

With ONSIGHT’s 3D expertise, the Shepperton Studios division supplied a camera package, including 3ality Technica equipment, for shooting native stereo 3D. In the London facility, the team provided 3D post services.
