New ‘Martian’ Trailer Hits the Web

The Martian, an adaptation of Andy Weir’s bestselling novel, has a new trailer that provides a window into the film.

With a screenplay penned by Drew Goddard—the same name that wrote for Cabin in the Woods and DaredevilThe Martian “is poised to be one of the best science fiction films of 2015,” reports Quiet Earth.

Fans from Comic-Con had the opportunity to view early footage of the movie, and have divulged that The Martian captures the “thrills and humor” found in the original book—something that the new trailer also seems to reflect.

For those who haven’t read the book (recommendation: DO!), the film synopsis is as follows:

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and 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.

Casting for the movie adaptation of The Martian includes Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover. View the latest trailer below and see for yourself what the film has to offer fans!
