Included are audio commentary by Scott, writer-producer Drew Goddard, and author Andy Weir, as well as deleted scenes, the documentary featurettes The Long Way Home: Making the Martian and Dare Mighty Things: NASA’s Journey to Mars, and a Journey to Mars 101 Q&A. The Martian hits home video on June 7.
