The first trailer for The Martian is out, a new film by Ridley Scott based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Andy Weir. (If you haven’t read The Martian you really must check it out – it’s a fantastic “science-reality” adventure about one stranded astronaut’s struggle to survive on Mars and NASA’s attempt to get him back.) After watching this I’m even more excited about it – I think this could spark more space survival movies (à la Gravity) that don’t need to depend on over-imaginative science concepts or alien civilizations as story hooks – real survival on other planets will be dramatic enough!
The Martian will open in U.S. theaters on
November 25 October 2!!! The studio switched its opening day to avoid competition with Disney’s Good Dinosaur and the second Hunger Games installment. I’ve got no problem with that! (Source)
