added: Mon, Jun 8th '15

So you saw astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) say his final farewells as his crew (Jessica Chastain, Michael Pena, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan and Aksel Hennie) prepared for a long flight to Mars. Now get familiar with the team's "Ares 3" mission in the first official trailer for director Ridley Scott's star-studded space adventure thriller "The Martian."

The upcoming film is the big-screen adaptation of the bestselling book of the same name by software engineer-turned-first-time author Andy Weir, and it focuses on a manned spaceflight to Mars. Much of the story revolves around the harrowing survival of astronaut Mark Watney (Damon) who is accidentally left behind when a violent dust storm on Mars separates him from his crew.

Chiwetel Ejiofor, Jeff Daniels, Kristen Wiig and Sean Bean round out the cast of the Drew Goddard-penned film, which opens 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.
