Back in June we brought you a look at the first teaser trailer for the highly-anticipated sci-fi flick The Martian and now, we’re happy to announce that 20th Century Fox has released the full official trailer!
“During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) 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.”
The film, based on the 2011 best-selling novel by Andy Weir, stars Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, and a score of other greats. Ridley Scott directs The Martian set to hit theaters on October 2nd.
