Matt Damon The Martian Trailer

(20th Century Fox)

Matt Damon is an astronaut who gets stranded on Mars in the first trailer for The Martian. Watch below.

The Oscar winner plays Mark Watney, a member of a space team sent to explore Mars. When Watney is presumed dead after an incident during the mission, the shuttle takes off without him. He is then forced to figure out a way to survive on Mars with only limited supplies. Back on Earth, society becomes obsessed with “the martian,” as NASA attempts to bring him home.

Damon’s fellow astronauts are played by Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan, and Michael Pena. The ensemble cast also includes Jeff Daniels, Kristen Wiig, Donald Glover, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Sean Bean. The trailer comes one day after a promotional video featured Damon and other co-stars in character filming a goodbye video before taking off on their space trip.

The movie is based on the best-selling book of the same name by Andy Weir. Drew Goddard adapted it for film, with Ridley Scott directing. The Martian is slated to hit theaters in 3D on November 25. Check out the trailer below, as well as the aforementioned first-look clip. Comparisons to Gravity seem inevitable, but tell us what YOU think!
