Get Lost in Space with Matt Damon in ‘The Martian’ Trailer!
You might remember that months ago we mentioned in our mega book adaptations post that Ridley Scott optioned the rights for Andy Weir’s self-published novel ‘The Martian’. The novels tells the story of astronaut Mark Watney, a botanist and mechanical engineer, who is left stranded on Mars when the crew of the Ares 3 mission are forced to evacuate their landing site in Acidalia Planitia due to a dust storm with high winds. Watney is painfully impaled by an antenna during the evacuation, destroying his EVA suit’s bio-monitor computer, and his five crewmates believe him to be dead. His injury proves relatively minor, but with no way to contact Earth, Watney must rely on his scientific and technical skills to survive.
Cue months later, Matt Damon being cast in the main role, with Kate Mara, Kristen Wiig and Sean Bean having supporting roles, the film is made the trailer is right here!
Martian is released in cinemas on 25th November.
We think it looks great!
