An all-new video for the upcoming Ridley Scott-directed film "The Martian" -- based on the best-selling novel by Andy Weir -- has arrived and introduces viewers to the crew of the Ares 3 mission to Mars.
The video features Academy Award-winner Matt Damon as astronaut Mark Watney touring the Hermes shuttle prior to the crew's 150-day trip to Mars. Watney's fellow astronauts include Jessica Chastain as Commander Lewis, Sebastian Stan as Doctor Beck, Michael Peña as pilot Martinez, Kate Mara as computer specialist Johanssen, and Aksel Hennie as German astronaut Vogel. The video also includes interesting "pop-up" style facts about the crew, many of which fans of the book might recognize, such as Commander Lewis's love of classic music.
The book and film itself centers on Watney, who after an accident during an emergency evac is left stranded on Mars and must attempt to use his intelligence and limited supplies to survive in an impossible situation.
"The Martian" lands in theaters November 25, 2015.
