Matt Damon Is The Martian In This First Trailer

Matt Damon Is The Martian In This First Trailer

Mark Watney is a NASA astronaut stranded on Mars. He has thirty days of food rations and recyclable water. Unfortunately a rescue mission will take four years to reach him!

Matt Damon star’s as astronaut Mark Whitney is this film directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, BladeRunner). I was so intrigued by the films premise that i rushed out and grabbed a copy of the original novel the film is based on. You can read my review of the book here.

Title: The Martian | Release Date US: 25th November | UK: 27th November



A viral video has also been released online that introduces us the crew of the Hermes space craft just before it leaves for Mars. Watch the questionable camera skills of astronaut Mark Watney below.



Does this look good or am I over excited because I read the book? Contact us via Twitter, Facebook or use the comments box below to let us know your thoughts. The best ones will be read out in the next Betamax and Laserdisc, The Unheard Nerd’s TV and movie podcast.
