Matt Damon fights to survive on Mars in first trailer for The Martian

New, 67 comments

A day after we were introduced to the cast of Ridley Scott's The Martian, we now have our first trailer, and things look a good deal less chipper this time around. Here, we see NASA botanist Mark Watney (Matt Damon) left behind on Mars after a mission goes badly. The world thinks he'd dead and he has scant supplies, so, in order to survive, he has to "science the shit" out of his seemingly hopeless situation. With an all-star cast featuring Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, and even Donald Glover, the movie promises to be everything a Ridley Scott space epic should be. The Martian will debut in theaters on November 25th.
