by Britt Hayes 5 days ago
So far, every bit of marketing for Ridley Scott’s The Martian has been pretty exciting — between the viral content, deliberately paced release of images and the trailers, someone at 20th Century Fox is well-deserving of a raise. The latest viral video features noted astrophysicist and Cool Guy™ Neil deGrasse Tyson in a fictional episode of StarTalk, examining the Ares 3 mission featured in The Martian.

‘The Martian’ TV Spot: Surprise, Matt Damon Is Still Alive!

Honestly, 20th Century Fox hardly needs to hype up the release of Ridley Scott’s The Martian any more than they already have — we’re sold. But today brings a new TV spot for the upcoming sci-fi film, which makes excellent use of Jimi Hendrix’s “All Along the Watchtower” while showing off a little bit of new footage.

A crew of insanely smart scientists travel to a barren alien landscape. After an interstellar storm, one of the crew is left behind and presumed dead. He is, however, very much alive, and slowly begins plotting his return. No, it’s not the story of Doctor Doom in the new Fantastic Four reboot...OK, it is, but it’s also the plot for the upcoming Ridley Scott sci-fi drama The Martian, and today we’ve got a brand new trailer for you.

The more we see of Ridley Scott’s The Martian, the more promising the film looks. Before the official trailer hit, 20th Century Fox released a viral video from the archives of the fictional Ares 3 spacecraft.

The more we see of Ridley Scott’s The Martian, the more we wish we could see this film, like, tomorrow. Two new official photos along with two new magazine covers give us yet another look at Scott’s sci-fi drama, featuring Matt Damon as a stranded astronaut — but when the scenery looks that beautiful, maybe you don’t need to be rescued.

Every noteworthy film festival has a specific personality, honed over the years as the programmers learn all about their audience.

‘The Martian’ Star Matt Damon Says This Movie Is Totally Different From ‘Interstellar’

20th Century Fox
For the second time in as many years, Matt Damon will be starring in a sci-fi film as an astronaut stranded all alone on a planet. In Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, Damon played Dr. Mann, whose mental health went a bit wackadoo after he was left alone in space. In Ridley Scott’s The Martian, Damon plays Mark Watney, an astronaut stranded on Mars and struggling to survive. To further invite comparisons, both films star Jessica Chastain. But Matt Damon would like to assure you that these films are very different.
