A Storm Strikes in First Clip From 'The Martian'

The approaching dust storm is only the beginning of the Ares 3 crew's troubles in this clip from director Ridley Scott's "The Martian."

Although most of the promotional materials have focused on star Matt Damon, this clip widens the spotlight to include more of the ensemble cast, most notably Jessica Chastain.

Based on the 2011 novel by Andy Weir, “The Martian” stars Damon as astronaut Mark Watney, who’s presumed dead during a mission to Mars and left behind by his crew. Struggling to survive with only meager supplies, Watney manages to get a signal to Earth, leading NASA to search for a way to bring “the Martian” home, even as his own crew hatches a daring — and seemingly impossible — rescue plan.

Opening Oct. 2, “The Martian” also stars Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Sebastian Stan, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sean Bean and Donald Glover.
