Ridley Scott's next voyage into space, The Martian, goes into orbit on October 2nd. Until then, fans dying to see what the visionary director has cooked up this time around can check out some of the cool "in-world" viral marketing for the film.
The clip below is titled "Leave Your Mark," and it gives you a glimpse of the intense training undergone by lead character Mark Watney (Matt Damon) as he prepares for his trip to Mars.
Check it out:
During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return. Based on a best-selling novel, and helmed by master director Ridley Scott, THE MARTIAN features a star studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.
Kinda looks like Damon wanted to outdo his buddy Ben Affleck in the "jacked" department, considering the work the latter had to do to get into shape to play Batman. "Who you callin 'Robin' now, bro?"
The Martian, based on the novel by Andy Weir, is just weeks away.
