The Martian trailer, new clips from Matt Damon and Ridley Scott drama

20TH Century FOX has released a new trailer for the highly-anticipated action-drama “The Martian”. The film stars Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena and Jeff Daniels. Joining them on screen will be Chiwetel Ejiofor, Donald Glover, Mackenzie Davis, Sebastian Stan, Aksel Hennie and Sean Bean.

The film comes from director Ridley Scott and follows a manned mission to Mars with Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) who is presumed dead after a fierce storm hits the landing site. He is then left behind by his crew.

Watney has survived the storm however and soon finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.

Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return. Based on a best-selling novel, and helmed by master director Ridley Scott, THE MARTIAN features a star studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.

The film is set to hit theaters on October 2, 2015.
