Redheaded Chastain dazzled in a Elie Saab Couture gown, while Wiig opted for a short floral dress by Valentino and Mara went strapless in Dior.

The film, based on the best-selling 2011 novel by Andy Weir, stars Damon as Mark Watney, a NASA astronaut with a sharp sense of humor despite being accidentally stranded on Mars by his crew when they assume he was killed during a violent dust storm.

Much of the film and the original book features Damon’s efforts to survive — from growing potatoes in the crew’s Martian habitat to trekking across the remote planet’s barren surface — while a NASA team back on Earth struggles to come up with a solution to “bring him home.”

“The Martian” earned immense praise when it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it was described as a “love letter to science,” by TheWrap‘s Steve Pond.
