Start your week off with the first official trailer for The Martian! This film stars Matt Damon (don’t you dare do the Team America voice!) and is directed by Ridley Scott.
Based on this trailer, the story seems pretty easy to follow. During a mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney and his crew get caught in a violent storm and is presumed dead. The crew can’t find him so they have no choice but to leave him behind.
The trailer shows the rest of the story and the best line of the trailer “I’m gonna have to science the shit out of this.”
Also starring in this space epic is Jessica Chastain (who’s recently starred in a previous space epic), Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Michael Pena, Kate Mara, Sean Bean, Sebastian Stan, Askel Hennie, Chiwetel Ejiofor\ and Donald Glover.
Talk about a solid supporting cast! This film looks epic and overwhelmingly emotional. Ridley Scott is no stranger to space films. Matt Damon shines bright in this trailer. Possible Oscar contender? We’ll wait and see.
Over the weekend, we also received a viral video of a documentary style introduction of the space crew The Ares. Check it out here!
The Martian comes to theaters this November.
Just for kicks, someone should replace the trailer’s score with The Misfits’ I Turned Into A Martian.
What did you think of this trailer? Will you be seeing this in theaters? Do you think it’s got some Oscar potential? Let’s discuss!
