‘The Martian’ Trailer: Matt Damon Is Stuck On Mars
How many movie stars does it take to rescue Matt Damon?
The first trailer for 20th Century Fox’s The Martian, based on Andy Weir’s novel of the same name, finally arrived on Monday (June 8, 2015), and it does not disappoint.
Damon plays Mark Watney, an astronaut who finds himself alone Mars after fellow crewmembers head back to Earth. A storm leaves Watney behind and he’s presumed dead until he successfully “sciences the sh*t out of this” and makes contact with home.
The home crew includes Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Donald Glover, Michael Pena, Chiwetel Ejiofor, a very, very worried looking Kristen Wiig, Sean Bean, Sebastian Stan, and Jeff Daniels (who unfortunately still looks and sounds like he’s reading the news).
Ridley Scott serves as director, following his most recent sci-fi flick, Prometheus (2012).
The Martian opens Nov. 25.
