The Martian — New Trailer


added: Wed, Aug 19th '15

Matt Damon is still alive. "Suuurrrprise."

In the new trailer for director Ridley Scott's forthcoming astronaut-stuck-on-Mars thriller "The Martian," which is based on Andy Weir's best-selling book of the same name, Damon plays NASA engineer Mark Watney who, after a space disaster that leaves him stranded all alone on Mars, is believed to have died in the accident. When Earth receives a message from Watney that says otherwise, the U.S. President (Jeff Daniels) and NASA scientists (Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kristen Wiig, Sean Bean, Donald Glover) immediately begin to organize a rescue operation. The thing is, it will take another four years just to travel back to Mars. So, until then, Watney will have to rely on his scientific wits -- and "make water and grow food on a planet where nothing grows."

Meanwhile, Watney's fellow crew members (Jessica Chastain, Michael Pena, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan and Aksel Hennie), who are on their way back to Earth from Mars, have devised their own daring rescue plan to save Watney, which could possibly turn into a suicide mission if they are not careful.

Adapted by Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods, Netflix's Daredevil ), "The Martian" is set to launch 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.
