YESSSSSSSS!!!!! This is what I’m talking about!!!! RIDLEY SCOTT IS BACK PLAYAZ!!! This trailer for The Martian (one of my most anticipated films of this year) KICKS ALL KINDS OF MAJOR ASS!!! I LOVE IT!!
Now I will admit, Ridley Scott has been a recent decline in terms of film quality, ever since Prometheus his films have been getting less and less watchable, but looking at this trailer I am reminded why he is one of my favorite directors. The Martian stars Matt Damon as Mark Watney, the leader of a NASA crew sent to survey the planet of Mars, but things go south when an unexpected storm hits and forces the crew to leave the planet, only, Watney gets left behind and is presumed dead by NASA President. Now Watney is force to live on a 31 days supply of food and resources until he crew can come rescue him.
The film looks and feels like a return to classic 70 and 80s science fiction films. Plus, what’s great about the trailer is even at its 3 min length it reveals very little, just the bare bones of the what the film will encompass. The trailer also shows off some really impressive visuals that Scott is known for having, his films often look beautiful and this film seems like no exception. Along with Ridley Scott at the helm the film has an INCREDIBLE CAST!!! Which includes Jessica Chastain as Melissa Lewis, Michael Pena as Major Rick Martinez and Kate Mara as Beth Johanssen. Below is a viral video where you can get a closer look at Mark Watney (Matt Damon) and his crew.
Color me excited!
