The Martian Trailer

"In your face, Neil Armstrong." 20th Century Fox has unveiled the first full trailer for Ridley Scott's The Martian, adapted from Andy Weir's novel. Matt Damon stars as astronaut Mark Watney, the leader of one of the first manned missions to Mars, however he ends up stranded there. You'll see the rest of the story in the trailer, as it sets up a fascinating and exciting story of survival against all odds. This kind of fits in nicely as a prequel to Interstellar, but it also seems to stand alone as an invigorating new space exploration entry. The movie seems to have an expanded focus on a number of characters, including the rest of the crew but also many back on Earth. It gets really good when Damon begins to figure out how to survive by himself.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Ridley Scott's The Martian, direct from 20th Century Fox:

The Martian

You can see the video introduction to the Hermes and the rest of the Ares 3 crew in this teaser video here.

The Martian is directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, Gladiator, Prometheus) and written by Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods). Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) became one of the first people to walk on Mars. But after a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. But Mark isn’t ready to give up yet. Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Donald Glover, Sebastian Stan and more star in the film 20th Century Fox will release in time for Thanksgiving on November 25th.

      Ain't it grand to have some hard sci-fi to dig your teeth into?
  • Tester
    Looks too cheesy and as usual they showed too much on the trailer, they could have easily stopped once it was shown that he was stranded, but they had to go full cheese
    • davidshaw
      Why even bother watching movies anymore if you're just gonna be a whiny little bitch about everything? Grow up, moron.
      • Tester
        David, u got me all wrong dude.. What made U think I ever watch these movies ? I just whiny like a little bitch on this site hoping to get your dickhead all mighty opinion !!!!
    • ari smulders
      true, it was to much like the terminator trailer...
    • RAW_D
      It's disappointing they have to reveal so much in trailers these days. A bit of mystery goes a long way imo.
    • Akirakorn
      They didn't 'have' to, they just do. Cause they are so scare movie goers are smart and need to know everything before hand. So they condition them to be dumb by making everything over-explained and shown before hand. On the other hand, I have friends and family will literally not watch a movie unless they know "if he dies in the end" or not beforehand.
    • Carmen Abe
      The application of science to the situation is what has me hooked, and those solutions weren't really revealed in the trailer.
  • davidshaw
    Donald Glover? Sweet
  • Xerxexx
    Yeah science bitch!

      Yo, Jesse... that you, dude?

  • David Steller
    Murph! MURPH!!! Just kidding. This movie is a wish made true, since I read the book my thought trough the whole reading was: "A movie about this would be so freaking awesome"
  • ari smulders
    Again they are showing to much... After a minute I thought :omg I've seen the movie! So this is the way to destroy popcorn time! Now I get it! :)
    • backwardsprogress
      I usually just make some popcorn before I watch trailers nowadays. That way at least it feels like I'm at the movies.
      • ari smulders
        Popcorn time is a free illegal streaming service. It's huge overhere in the Netherlands. 1,3 million fellow dutchies are streaming illegal overhere in the Netherlands...
        • shiboleth
          Well, why is that illegal if it's free? Is that some new Dutch sense of freedom, calling free people illegal ...
          • ari smulders
            Haha noop! You are ofcourse free to download popcorn time, but using it is illegal... But 1,3 miljon people use it (we are with 17 miljon) so we aren't exactly law abiding citizens.Its also free overhere to smoke pot, and that's not illegal...
          • shiboleth
            I like Netherlands, don't get me wrong. I also have been in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and some other places in country (spend almost ten very nice days there),.. My problem is: why popcorn should be interpreted as illegal? If people share what they like, it sounds like sharing is illegal ...
          • ari smulders
            Because it like the pirate bay, only this is streaming...
          • shiboleth
            I totally understand you (and I guess this is not the place) but I hoped for better answer. Let's put it another way: are you against the Popcorn time and Pirate Bay? Or is this way too straight question?
          • ari smulders
            I am not against it, that would be hypocritical because I download everything in a semi illegal way. I know productioncompany's lose allot of money, but they are also making big bucks as so the Hollywood a list! So if I can't download anything anymore because they found away to make it impossible I feel not sad. It's there money... But popcorn time is very user-friendly, so I accepted that they won't accept that. Everybody can used it, and with downloading you must spent some time and work to see a movie on your flat-screen .. And there will be always ways to see something illegal, but not for big crowds...
          • shiboleth
            Honest answers. I agree with a lot that you say. Best regards to you and to Netherlands. Hope to visit it someday again. I'm from Croatia, in many ways maybe not so happy country as yours, but also not so bad either. We may not have the opportunity to smoke free pot, but we like movies a lot, we also do enjoy very fine weather throughout the year and with different seasons; there's beautiful and mostly sunny Adriatic coast to enjoy, and very fine and diverse food. If you come someday, you just might like it ... Nice talking to you Ari ...
          • ari smulders
            I heard along time from other people that Croatia is a beautiful country, so need to convince me :) We dutch are indeed very liberal but we have also our downsides. The last 10 years we had political assasinations,and Geert Wilders is a very dangerous guy with his standpoints on the Islam... So not everything is happy in the Netherlands!
          • shiboleth
            Unfortunately, I believe all this regarding politicians is some kind of European disease, blaming Others for everything. In that respect, Croatia can be very unfair country also. But, on the bright side, there's more and more foreigners here and we start looking better in that respect. But, downside comparing to Netherland is; we are (well, I want to believe I am more liberal and open-minded) still very conservative in many respects. So, everything isn't shinny in Croatia, either. Cheers Ari ...
          • ari smulders
            There are everywhere rotten eggs, but the migrant problem is indeed a magnet for everything what's bad in humans. If the european military doesn't put boots on the ground in Isis country and wipe the fuckers out, the problem stays...
          • shiboleth
            It's a huge topic, indeed. And profoundly ugly. I am always a bit unwilling to start it since I come from the area where hatred to Others is way too usual practice and shameful reminder. As for the Isis, they're disgusting in every respect and deserve worse ... I don't know what to think of European military, though. We had enough problem with colonialism already ...
          • ari smulders
            Oké,you corrected me in a right way. But it is neccesary that there are going to be boots on the ground in Isis country... The sadistic zealots from Isis must be wiped out. Throwing bombs has no effect, at least small ones.
          • shiboleth
            Don't worry, I don't defend those 'zealots' and have no wish for it. They are disgrace for humanity and should be removed from the Earth. As for the military boots I just hope that afterwards they don't become an excuse to force some other military coup ... But Ari, I think I mostly and totally agree with you...
    • mzungu
      If you read the book, it basically follows the plot of Val Kilmer's "Red Planet".. Trekking across Mars, reusing old Martian lander pars to communicate, rigging and ridding a ship to get back up, and a "I felt guilty" female commander....Same shit, different day. 😀
      • ari smulders
        Okay :)
        • mzungu
          Sorry, didn't realize I just might be a spoiler. 😀 The book is cool.
  • Where's the aliens?
    • Akirakorn
      In the trailer. They are called Earthlings.
  • Trey
    looks like hard science
    • Tester
      Yeah right, as the guy duc tapes his helmet.. right
      • Carmen Abe
        I don't see how duct tape is not helpful in his situation. Depends how much opposing force there is, I suppose.
      • Matthew
        Duct tape is the universal fix.
  • Snev De la Fontaine
    This looks great! I wish I hadn't seen so much of it. Here's hoping I forget what I've seen, but remember to check this when it comes out as soon as possible.
  • RAW_D
    My brother-in-law read the book and said it was hilarious. Very cynical in tone but intense. Looks like they may have kept that the same for the movie. I may try and give it a read prior to seeing know...
  • shiboleth
    Nice trailer. Almost wish to spend some time on Mars. No longer than two hours, though... But will gladly watch ...
  • avconsumer2
    Can't wait. Hopefully Ridley is back on the horse.
  • John Doe
    Well damn! I been waiting a few years now for Matt Damon to make a comeback after the Bourne Ultimatum and it looks like he's finally done just that. Also that "I'm gonna have to science the shit outta this" line was freakin genius!
  • Bo
    As I've said before, I read this book after I heard Scott was going to make a movie of it as I'll watch anything he does. However, I found the book just awful. It was boring and over-written and not involving in the least to me. Now, after stating all of that, I found this to be an excellent trailer and man has Scott put together a great cast. I look forward to seeing what he's done with the book now that I've seen this trailer. We'll see. Scott's been hit and miss with me lately, but I've really liked most of his films. Including The Counselor, even though it was shot did trouble me a bit.
  • III
    The cast is purely magnificent! Ridley Scott, he had more hits than misses, so I hope it's a hit. x The trailer is too long
  • Dick Cockburn
    Matt Damon ... "I'm going to have to science the shit out of this"... ugh!!
      His character is sardonic.
    • BigTulsa
      If I recall correctly that line was in the book..
  • Chris Groves
    Dear Ridley Scott. After Prometheus, The Counselor, and BETTER not screw this up!
      Amen, Chris.
  • Bill
    Looks good to me, I'm looking forward to it!
  • nevadasurfer
    Just show the entire book in one trailer why don't you
    Very good. I just want this to be a good film from Scott. // I am not sure, but it seems they may have made a few of the Control Center characters a different race than they were in the books.
  • BigTulsa
    Watney isn't the leader of the mission, as the article states. He's a mission specialist (botanist if I recall from the book). Jessica Chastain plays the mission commander.
    • Matthew
      I got that by how she addressed the crew and the teaser.
  • Jorrell Mcdaniel
    Listen I FUCKING loved this trailer. I can`t wait to see the film. It looks fantastic. Goosebumps inducing even. However, WHY THE FUCK do so many trailers have to give soooooooo much of the plot away in the trailers? Like Wtf, I feel like I just saw 75% of the films main beats lmfao.
    • IamSlave
      It's about a guy left on Mars and trying to save him. It's not like its a super complex plot. It's pretty straightforward and they showed you that. Nothing is really "ruined". Remember it's about the journey not the destination.
      • Payne by name
        Apart from we know that he gets left behind , the world thinks he's dead, there'll be no tension in 'will he won't he get a message through' and no relief when it I'd received.
  • Matthew
    WOWWW. There is a lot in this trailer but really it's not that big of a deal because it's a pretty straightforward film. I must say it looks spectacular and I'll forgive Ridley for the enjoyable but still underwhelming Prometheus lol.
  • Luke
    Don't they know to not let Matt Damon in space?
  • ari smulders
    there is no movie life after mad Max, it's sad to acknowledge that... We must again wait for 10 years.
  • TK
    Wow looks fantastic. Man I wish we would stop spending so much money fighting and killing each other and pour it all in to space travel and exploring new worlds.
  • Oriyan J. Ovadia
    Does this have any connection with Interstellar?
    • Ryan
  • Trevor Laframboise
    I wonder who his "wilson" will be? Looks good...but did anyone else see a variation of Castaway in this trailer?
