The first trailer from Ridley Scott’s hotly anticipated sci-fi The Martian is now online.
Adapted from Andy Weir’s best-selling novel, the Martian stars Matt Damon as Mark Watney, an astronaut who finds himself stranded alone on Mars after a mission goes awry. With limited food and water Watney must “science the shit” out of the situation if he has any hope of survival.
In addition to the trailer, a 3-minute promo from Luke Scott gives viewers an introduction to the crew of the Hermes as the vessel travels to Mars. The short film has been well received, stirring up interest in what is looking to be one of the biggest films of the year.
The Martian, which also stars Kate Mara, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Sean Bean, Donald Glover, Jeff Daniels, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, will hit screens on October 2.
