The first trailer for Ridley Scott’s ‘The Martian‘ has arrived, and its a long one. Seriously, this might be the only trailer you’ll need to watch between now and its Thanksgiving release date.
‘The Martian‘ features an All-Star cast led by Matt Damon as astronaut scientist Mark Watney. During a mission on Mars w/ his crew, a severe storm hits and the crew must evacuate, only without Watney. Presumed dead, Watney must use every drop of science he knows to overcome impossible survival odds, while finding a way to contact home.
Great visuals, as per usual with any Ridley Scott film, but this one has a very interesting and scary concept (based off the book by Andy Weir). Not to mention the cast, which has a mix of Oscar nominated performers in Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, along with some up and comers in Kate Mara and Sebastain Stan.
I just wish the trailer wasn’t so long, given its release in November. Ever hear of the term “teaser trailer“? Anyways, check out the trailer below. There’s also a cool viral video of the Ares 3 crew, which released a few days ago. You can find that below as well.
The Martian also stars Jeff Daniels, Michael Pena, and Kristen Wiig, and Donald Glover.
During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return. Based on a best-selling novel, and helmed by master director Ridley Scott.
