Ridley Scott offers first trailer for The Martian with Matt Damon
After a few weeks of teasers, 20th Century Fox has released the first official trailer for “The Martian,” a new sci-fi film set to release later this year.
The film follows the events of a manned mission to Mars. After landing on the infamous red-planet, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead and is left behind by his fellow crew members.
Shortly after the storm subsides, Watney finds himself marooned on the hostile planet, with limited supplies and little hope of survival. The astronaut will have to brave the elements in a race against time to find establish a signal to Earth, with enough time to spare for the retreating crew to come back for him.
The film is the latest space-themed adventure from director Ridley Scott, working off a screenplay written by Drew Goddard. The film is based on the popular book written by Andy Weir.
Joining Damon on screen are Kate Mara, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Donald Glover and Jeff Daniels.
The film is set to release in theaters on November 25, 2015.
