Neil deGrasse Tyson Examines the Ares 3 in 'The Martian' Promo
Our adventure is just beginning. Whoa! This is awesome. Fox has debuted an intriguing new promo video for Ridley Scott's The Martian, featuring real-world astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson examining and discussing the Ares 3 mission to Mars. With all the footage we've seen it looks like they're trying to make this as realistic as possible, as if this mission was actually taking place. And I love that angle because it really does make this feel more real, and like it's actually possible. This video delves into the ideas about Mars and why we want to go there, and how we're going to get there. It's a very nice primer for this movie.
Here's the new promo for Ridley Scott's The Martian, with Neil deGrasse Tyson talking about Ares 3:
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 The Martian this fall starting October 2nd.
