The marketing campaign for Ridley Scott’s The Martian continues with the latest Ares: Live video. The latest video has famed astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson talking about the mission to Mars, which as we know from the trailers, goes horribly wrong for Matt Damon.

The video is brilliantly constructed, and gives plenty of detail into the mission and the tools being used for it. Had the shot of the crew not appeared at the end (showing the famous cast), you could almost be fooled into thinking this was real.

The Martian is directed by Ridley Scott, with Drew Goddard adapting the novel written by Andy Weir. The cast includes Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.

Synopsis:

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return. Based on a best-selling novel, and helmed by master director Ridley Scott, THE MARTIAN features a star studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.

The Martian lands in UK cinemas 2nd October.

Matt WavishA keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
