Is There Life on Mars?: Matt Damon Tries to Survive in “The Martian” Trailer
Help is only 140 million miles away
“I’m going to have to science the shit out of this.” Truer words were never spoken in the middle of a big-budget sci-fi trailer. The Martian—Sir Ridley Scott‘s full-length follow-up to 2014’s Exodus: Gods and Kings—stars Matt Damon as an astronaut that has been stranded on the surface of Mars. Damon stuck alone on a far away planet? Sounds familiar.
Unlike his evil tendencies in his last space film cameo, in The Martian Damon seems like a pretty smart and very resourceful guy just trying to connect with NASA to get him home. On Earth, Damon’s fate is in the hands of his old crew including Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Jessica Chastain working at NASA? Sounds familiar.
The film, which is based off of Andy Weir’s novel of the same name and is definitely (probably) not Interstellar 2, will hit theaters later this fall.
The Martian is slated for theaters on November 25.
