Matt Damon's new movie looks out of this world—literally and figuratively.
20th Century Fox released a new trailer for The Martian Wednesday, giving fans a closer look at what happens when, during a manned mission to Mars, a fierce storm hits and astronaut Mark Watney (Damon) is presumed dead. Though Mark survives, his crew has left him behind. Somehow, he must find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Meanwhile, NASA and a team of international scientists are working trying to bring "the Martian" home, and Mark's crew plots a daring rescue mission.
Ridley Scott directed the movie, adapted from Andy Weir's best-selling novel. In addition to Damon, the star-studded film features Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Donald Glover, Kate Mara, Michael Peña and Kristen Wiig.
The Martian will be released Oct. 2 in 2D and 3D.
