We’ve been chomping at the bits for a look into the upcoming Ridley Scott film, The Martian. Finally, after much anticipation, the first trailer has been released, and it appears like it’s going to be one hell of a ride.
“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.”
Colonizing Mars has been a hot topic the last few years, and this film will hopefully, whet everyone’s appetite and encourage more to the idea of sending humans to the red planet. Well, at least depending on how Matt Damon sciencing the shit out of everything turns out.
The film has an all-star line-up including Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig, Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Jeff Daniels, and Sean Bean (with his head intact!) among a score of other players. The Martian, based off the book of the same name by Andy Weir, is set to hit theaters November 25, 2015.
UPDATE (June 11, 2015)!!!!! The release date for The Martian has been pushed up to October 2nd! Fans, rejoice!
