The Martian may not hit theaters until October, but the upcoming movie has already made its premiere — in space.

Astronauts on board the International Space Station got to watch an advanced screening of The Martian this weekend. Scott Kelly and Kjell Lindgren both shared photos of their crew members watching the film, which stars Matt Damon as an astronaut left for dead on Mars. “What a treat to watch The Martian while in space and see reflections of our own journey to Mars!” Lindgren tweeted.
