When existential weirdness meets space travel, though, anything's possible. It certainly looks intriguing. The "one moment of pure wonder" line is a little touchy-feely, but it seems like taking a lonely, one-way mission to another planet would stir up some heavy emotions. And it doesn't look like anyone will come and rescue this particular Martian at the end of the film.

An Australian release date has not yet been confirmed.
