The Martian — Promo Video (Ares 3: Farewell)


added: Sun, Jun 7th '15

Before he blasts off to Mars, Matt Damon just wants to take the opportunity to say "goodbye" to Earth for what might be his last time in this 3-minute-long promo video for director Ridley Scott's forthcoming space-set survival drama "The Martian."

Though not an official trailer, this newly-released viral video offers the very first peek at the fearless crew of the Hermes (Damon, Jessica Chastain, Michael Pena, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan and Aksel Hennie) who are about to set sail on the first manned flight to Mars. It will undoubtedly be a life-changing space voyage. But for astronaut Mark Watney (Damon), it could also be a life-ending one too.

Based on the bestselling book of the same name by author Andy Weir, which was adapted by screenwriter Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods, Cloverfield, Netflix's Daredevil, TV's Lost), "The Martian" is scheduled to open in theaters on October 2nd.

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney 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.
