Mission to Mars is a science fiction film directed by Brian De Palma from an original screenplay written by Jim Thomas, John Thomas, and Graham Yost. In 2020, a manned Mars exploration mission goes awry. American astronaut Jim McConnell coordinates a rescue mission for a colleague. Film inspiration was partly from the Disney attraction of the same name, to be the second Disney film based on a theme park attraction, following the 1997 made-for-TV movie Tower of Terror.

Let There Be Life. (taglines)


Woody Blake: You're just not man enough to wear jewelry.

Jim McConnell: There's pressure in here.
Terri Fisher: Above Mars atmosphere? That's impossible.
Jim McConnell: We're millions of miles from Earth inside a giant white face. What's impossible?

Terri Fisher: The genetic difference between men and apes is only three percent. But that three percent gave us Einstein, Mozart...
Phil Ohlmyer: ...Jack The Ripper.

Luke Graham: Phil, do you read me?
Phil Ohlmyer: Phil isn't here right now, he left for Earth FIVE MINUTES AGO, please leave a message after the beep!

Terri Fisher: When we get back, we have GOT to try this in the simulator...

Jim McConnell: They're us. We're them.

Jim McConnell: What is she now?
Phil Ohlmyer: A frog...?

Woody Blake: Some couples dance, others go to Mars.

Woody Blake: Internal combustion, boys. Accept no substitutes.

Luke Graham: Come on - three commanders. One ship. I don't think that's gonna work. There's not enough rocket fuel in the world to get those egos off the ground.

Woody Blake: Okay, people let's look sharp now. We're gonna run this simulation one more time. If we overshoot, there's no coming back.
Phil Ohlmyer: Yeah, and drifting through eternity will ruin your whole day.

Jim McConnell: Like Maggie said: To stand on a new world and look beyond it to the next one.
