Matt Damon is starring in The Martian, a movie adaptation of the amazing book by Andy Weir, directed by Ridley Scott. The film’s set for release on November 25th, and hopefully a full trailer is coming soon, but now getting we’re our first official look at the film, courtesy of a “viral” promo video. As an added bonus, he’s from Chicago and a Cubs fan.
The video has the look and feel of a NASA video log from the International Space Station, as botanist Mark Watney (Damon) introduces viewers to the crew, which includes the pilot Rick Martinez (Michael Pena, End of Watch), commander Melissa Lewis (Jessica Chastain, Zero Dark Thirty), Chris Beck (Sebastian Stan, Captain America), Aleks Vogel (Aksel Hennie, Hercules), and “computer expert” Beth Johanssen (Kate Mara, House of Cards).
