Matt Damon is still stuck on Mars in the second trailer for Ridley Scott’s The Martian. Oh no!
Andy Weir’s equal parts intense and entertaining novel The Martian is getting the big screen treatment, with Matt Damon as main character Mark Watney.
The movie lands in October, and we got our first trailer back in June. Now it’s time to take a closer look at the film and its (many) stars:
In the second trailer, “All Along the Watchtower” plays as Mark is shown surviving the accident which should have killed him, while on an expedition to Mars. We then see him informing his homeward-bound crew that he is still alive. “Surprise!”
Luckily, Damon’s character is a resourceful person, who is going to “science the sh**” out of this” to stay alive. How inspirational! If this movie is anything like the book (which seems to be the case), we’ll both be laughing and crying with Mark before the story is over.
“I will never stop fighting to make it home,” Mark says, during the heart-pounding final crescendo of the trailer.
While Matt Damon will undoubtedly be commanding much of the screen time, seeing as he’s alone on Mars for the majority of the movie, the incredible cast of The Martian also includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Donald Glover, Sebastian Stan, Michael Pena, Jeff Daniels, Sean Bean, and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Directed by Ridley Scott, The Martian lands in Earth cinemas on October 2, 2015. No word yet on its galaxy-wide release.
