Check out the new Full Theatrical Trailer for THE MARTIAN.
The book is definitely the best novel that I’ve read this year and this looks almost completely faithful to it. Damon looks to be a (inter)stellar Mark Watney and the rest of the supporting cast surrounding him looks equally up to the task.
The only issue that I have is that it seems to give away most, if not all, of what happens in the book. There is little that isn’t shown in this trailer and I’m worried that when audiences see the movie in a couple of months… It won’t unfold in front of them with the same shocking level of humor and humanity that the book does.
Still incredibly excited about this movie. The first time I’ve said that about a Ridley Scott movie since PROMETHEUS. Please, THE MARTIAN. Don’t be PROMETHEUS.
