The first trailer for Ridley Scott's (director of Alien, Blade Runner, and Galdiator) newest film The Martian staring Matt Damon has been released.

Based on the book by Andy Weir, The Martian follows astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) who is accidentally left on Mars during an aborted NASA expedition. He struggles to stay alive on the dusty planet in hopes that NASA (which believes he is dead) finds and rescues him. Meanwhile, it looks like he's getting some gardening done.
