A few days ago a new trailer landed for Ridley Scott’s awesome looking new sci-fi, The Martian, and now comes an extended TV spot.
Running at just over a minute, it’s basically a shorter version of the latest trailer, but it still works tremendously well and still has a powerful effect.
Fox appear to be ramping up the advertising campaign for this one, as they are hoping to get the same success as 2013’s Gravity from it. The Martian looks great, and the first trailer really connected with audiences, so there is no reason why The Martian will not be a huge success.
The cast is amazing, and Scott continues to be a powerful force in the movie world. Add the fact that the film actually looks amazing, The Martian is definitely one that should be high priority on your must-see list.
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.
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.
