Matt Damon's NASA spacesuit from The Martian on display...

In this year's adaptation of Andy Weir's 2011 best seller, The Martian, Matt Damon plays the astronaut left behind and thought dead when a fierce storm hits his Ares III team on a manned mission to the Red Planet. Having survived, he finds himself alone and stranded on Mars and must use all his skills, ingenuity and will power to stay alive and find a way to signal Earth.

This amazing orange NASA spacesuit worn by Matt Damon as Astronaut 'Mark Watney' in the movie and was photographed on display in the ArcLight Hollywood cinema foyer on September 24, 2015 (and I believe you can also win a chance to take home a replica space helmet).

Academy Award-winner Janty Yates was Costume Designer on the sci-fi movie directed by Ridley Scott, and she's no stranger to space as she also designed the costumes for the Alien prequel, Prometheus.

You can also see her Oscar-winning costumes from Gladiator, plus fantastic costumes from Exodus: Gods and Kings and film costumes from 2010's Robin Hood (all directed by Ridley Scott) on display here at Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props.

Michael Mooney is also credited as Associate Spacesuit Costume Designer, whilst Shirley Wilson is credited with as Neoprene Spacesuit Cutter on IMDB, whilst the Mars surface suit was manufactured by FBFX.

I absolutely love getting up close to costumes like this, and reading little details on the space helmet like 'Human space survival instruments' and seeing all the stitching and detail on the gloves and boots. Spacesuits like this really bring out my inner nerd, and this is probably one of the least bulky spacesuits I've seen.

If you like this out-of-this-world astronaut costume, be sure to also get a closer look at Anne Hathaway's Interstellar NASA spacesuit and Tom Hanks Apollo 13 NASA costume and equipment on display.

If you're fan of Matt Damon, be sure to also check out these costumes, props and vehicles from the Bourne film franchise, his True Grit movie costume and costumes and screen-used props from Promised Land.

I don't want to get too excited to avoid disappointment, but I can't wait to see this new movie (until then I'll keep geeking out over this costume)
