‘The Martian’ Reveals New Video and Two More Images, Trailer Reportedly Arrives Very Soon
We sure have been seeing a whole lot of images from The Martian lately — Ridley Scott’s new sci-fi film starring Matt Damon has been dropping images left and right, and we still haven’t even seen a trailer yet. The latest stills from the movie feature Matt Damon (of course) and Jeff Daniels, while a new video introduces us to the crew of the Ares 3, giving us our first look at footage from the film.
The video was posted to the new Ares: Live YouTube channel, and introduces us to Damon’s astronaut Mark Watney, along with his fellow crew members: Pilot Rick Martinez (Michael Pena), Commander Melissa Lewis (Jessica Chastain), Dr. Chris Beck (Sebastian Stan), astronaut Aleks Vogel (Aksel Hennie) and computer expert Beth Johanssen (Kate Mara).
Like Damon in one of the new images below, we too have been counting the days — but according to The Projection List, the first trailer for The Martian should be arriving tomorrow morning. The new images were submitted to Reddit (via Slashfilm), and as one very smart commenter points out, this is a movie that features Matt Damon writing on a wall, which pretty much guarantees an Oscar nod.
The other image isn’t as compelling, but it does prove to you that Jeff Daniels is in this movie, doing what Jeff Daniels does best: sharply observing.
The Martian is described as follows:
Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won’t have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old “human error” are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn’t ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?
