Just one day after releasing a promo for the film, an official trailer for The Martian has been released.
Directed by Ridley Scott, The Martian is based on the best selling book of the same name by Andy Weir. The story is about an astronaut left for dead on Mars who must use his limited resources to survive, hoping to be rescued.
From looking at the trailer, the film seems to be making the best of an A-list cast including Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Kristen Wiig and Chiwetel Ejiofor. It provides us with a closer look at the survival techniques Damon’s character while stranded on the red planet, including his attempts at communication and agriculture.
Considering this film is coming out late fall, it could be a possible Oscar contender being released during awards season.
The Martian comes out in theaters Nov. 25.
