Matt Damon is left to die on Mars in first trailer for 'The Martian'

20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for its anticipated fall film “The Martian,” and it looks great.

Based on the best-selling book from Andy Weir of the same name, the story follows astronaut Mark Watney (Damon) as he’s left behind on Mars after a storm forces the rest of his crew to head home. 

Thought dead, Watney has to find a way to let NASA know he’s alive to bring him back home before his supplies run out. Once he does, he has to hope they can reach him before its too late. 

Also starring Kate Mara, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, and Jeff Daniels, “The Martian” is in theatres November 2015.
