Trailer Spotlight: The Martian

mart5

It’s no secret Ridley Scott has been on a downturn as of late, but somehow he has suckered Bro Knows into believing in him again with his upcoming The Martian. A little bit ago we commented on the images released from the film, and now we finally have our first trailer for this best selling book adaptation. It is fantastic!

Check out the Trailer!

Here’s the synopsis:

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return.

Goosebumps, just goosebumps. The trailer is fantastic, and it gives us an amazing look into the tone and story of the film. Seeing Matt Damon as the standee as he Macgyver’s his way to survival, is amazing. The cast looks incredible and this has all the makings for an award contending film. That being said, the trailers for The Counselor were also incredible and we all know how that turned out. Trying to stay positive, solely from the trailer, our interest is peaked and this promises to be an incredible journey of the human spirit.

So what do you guys out in Bro Nation think of the Trailer? Are you excited for The Martian? What do you think of Ridley Scott? Drop a comment and let’s start a discussion.
