“It is good to renew one’s wonder, said the philosopher. Space travel has again made children of us all.” – Ray Bradbury, The Martian Chronicles

A classic work of twentieth-century literature, 1950’s The Martian Chronicles documents the exploration and colonization of Mars by humans fleeing an unstable Earth. Sixty-five years later, we’re still trying to reach the red planet.

Of course, there have been countless cinematic explorations of Mars: The Angry Red Planet, Robinson Crusoe on Mars, Total Recall, Mission to Mars, John Carter – and who could forget Mars Needs Women and Santa Claus Conquers the Martians? And while fantastical these films may be, none of them have transported me to Mars in a way that felt truly and undeniably real.

Enter The Martian. Written by Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) and directed by Ridley Scott (Exodus: Gods and Kings), The Martian is based on Andy Weir‘s 2011 novel of the same name. It is the harrowing story of the first human to colonize Mars, NASA astronaut Mark Watney, played by Matt Damon.

Instead of a trailer, the video is presented realistically, as a special episode of StarTalk with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson talking about mankind finally visiting Mars and the upcoming mission there that we’ll see in the movie. It’s basically like an episode of Cosmos…from the future!

Matt Damon in The Martian

Fox has released the second trailer for Ridley Scott‘s The Martian, starring Matt Damon as an astronaut stranded on the planet Mars after he was thought to be dead. Drew Goddard wrote the script, which is based on Andy Weir’s novel of the same name. The new trailer provides us with all sorts of brand new footage with gives us more context as to how he does the impossible, use the very limited resources and science he has to create sustenance. But it will all be pointless if he doesn’t find a way to make contact with NASA, for which he also has limited resources. Even though he is millions of miles away and four years from Earth receiving his message, he does make contact. However, the surviving crew must decided whether to go back home as NASA ordered or mutiny and go on what could be a suicidal rescue mission.

Check out the newest trailer for The Martian here below.

In what has become a quintessential part of making a “going to space” movie, the dreaded interview process to determine mental faculties is now a staple of the genre. In a new spot for The Martian, we see Matt Damon and crew answer the really tough questions after being isolated for 10 days. Tough questions like…why Aquaman shouldn’t be able to control whales because whales aren’t fish, they’re mammals.

Yeah, this movie is gonna be awesome. Check out the official synopsis and movie spot video below.
