20th Century Fox has released a new teaser for their upcoming film, The Martian, starring Matt Damon. The new clip shows a declassified NASA psychological test involved in preparing the crew for their journey to Mars.
For a movie that’s supposed to be serious, this is one funny teaser. I’m having a hard time deciding who was funnier: Matt Damon or Michael Pena. It’s a great way to get us hyped for the film which is due to arrive cinemas on October 2.
Based on Andy Weir’s book of the same name, The Martian follows the story of Mark Watney, an astronaut who gets left behind on Mars by his crew. Originally thought to be dead, he ends up inspiring a long-shot rescue mission. The only problem is he still has to survive on his own for several years before the rescue mission gets to him.
Directed by Ridley Scott, the film stars Matt Damon, Kate Mara, Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Jeff Daniels.
