Matt Damon Perseveres in Three New 'The Martian' TV Spots

Fox has debuted three new TV spots for “The Martian,” featuring recut footage from director Ridley Scott’s sci-fi drama.

Based on the 2011 novel by Andy Weir, the film stars Matt Damon as astronaut Mark Watney, who during a manned mission to Mars is presumed dead 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 Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Sebastian Stan, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Donald Glover.
