The greatest threat to astronaut Mark Watney on Mars may not be starvation, dehydration of injury, but rather "godawful disco music."
That's the lighthearted takeaway from his new clip from director Ridley Scott's "The Martian," in which NASA staff members played by Jeff Daniels, Kristen Wiig and Chiwetel Ejiofor grapple with the possibility that the stranded astronaut may still be alive.
Matt Damon stars as Watney, a botanist presumed dead during a mission to Mars and left behind by his crew. Based on the 2011 novel by Andy Weir, the sci-fi adventure follows his struggle to survive as NASA searches for a way to bring “the Martian” home.
Opening Friday, “The Martian” also stars Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Sebastian Stan, Sean Bean and Donald Glover.
