There has been a flurry of space debris in the past 12 hours or so for The Martian, Ridley Scott’s latest exploration into space — this one starring Matt Damon as an astronaut stranded on Mars. But character sheets and a teaser have led to this, the first full trailer for the 20th Century Fox pic, which centers on Damon’s Mark Watney who, faced with meager supplies, must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. When he gets that done, his NASA team must plot a seemingly impossible mission to go get him.
Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Donald Glover and Aksel Hennie co-star in the pic written by Drew Goddard. It’s in 3D and has a November 25 release date.
Check out the trailer above.
