Matt Damom’s upcoming sci-fi thriller, The Martian has already been garnering rave reviews at functions such as the Toronto International Film Festival well ahead of its October 2 release date.
Part of the reason could be its diverse supporting cast of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Peña and Donald Glover and/or Childish Gambino, tomato tomahto.
In a new teaser clip from The Martian, Glover, who plays science nerd Rich Purnell, devises a plan that will bring stranded astronaut Mark Watney (Damon) home from his Mars living space.
The film is based on Andy Weir’s 2011 best-selling novel The Martian, and it also pits Ridley Scott back in the director’s chair. Academy Award-nominated actress Jessica Chastain, Sean Bean and Jeff Daniels also star in the movie, which employs a $108 million dollar budget.
