A couple of months back, the teaser trailer for Ridley Scott's forthcoming sci-fi, space epic The Martian released (watch it here) and it was pretty great. Now, the first, full-length trailer for the film has been released online and it's even bigger and even better and even more exciting!

Based on Andy Weir's critically acclaimed novel of the same name, Matt Damon stars as our lead astronaut Mark Watney, who gets stranded on Mars after a storm rages on the planet and his crew leave him behind - presuming that he's dead. The teaser for the picture did a good job of setting up the premise and introducing our characters and giving us a good flavour of what to expect - showcasing some nice visuals and Scott's trademark directing.

This evening, Fox have debuted a brand-new trailer for The Martian and, just when you thought it couldn't get any better, it did. This trailer is phenomenal. Advancing on the teaser, this trailer gives us a better idea of the Damon stranded in space and the undergoing of his rescue aspect of the project. The visuals look stunning and there's a stellar cast joining our lead man too. Ridley Scott has shown, time and time again, that he has a terrific handle on this genre and knows just how to deliver a great sci-fi film and this film looks to be another, stunning triumph for the Prometheus director. There's a lot to get excited about here and I cannot wait to see this film.

Here's the film's official 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. Based on a best-selling novel, and helmed by master director Ridley Scott, THE MARTIAN features a star studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.
With Ridley Scott at the helm, and starring Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Jeff Daniels, Sean Bean, Sebastian Stan, Michael Peña and Donald Glover, The Martian opens on November 25th, 2015.
