The Martian...

Matt Damon stars as stranded NASA astronaut Mark Watney in THE MARTIAN.

Since NASA has been vigorously promoting The Martian through its website and online social media, just thought I'd share this latest trailer for the Ridley Scott-directed movie that stars Matt Damon. Based on the bestselling novel by Andy Weir and out in theaters nationwide on October 2, The Martian chronicles the exploits of a NASA astronaut who has to find a way to survive on the Red Planet's surface for four years as he waits for help after being left stranded by his crew following a Martian dust storm. Here's hoping Ridley Scott made a film that will be as critically-acclaimed and enjoyed by audiences as Alfonso CuarĂ³n's Gravity and Christopher Nolan's Interstellar were. NASA could use the additional PR if it wants its "JourneyToMars" hashtag on Twitter to continue meaning something years from now.
