'The Martian' Viral Teaser: Meet Mark Watney and the Crew
Ridley Scott's newest film, The Martian, has begun its viral marketing campaign with the release of a video showing Mark Watney (Matt Damon) giving a walk-through of the ship and crew before they embark on their trip to Mars. See it below:
Although brief, you get a feel for the ship and the personalities of the crew members in the few moments we spend with them. Along with Damon, Jessica Chastain, Sebastian Stan, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, and Aksel Hennie are all given seconds to shine, and as I have not read the book, I'm not quite sure what the events of the film hold. The video is shot with a live Twitter feed accompanying the video on Earth, which is a cool touch and grounds the teaser somewhat. Overall, it's a decent teaser to tide over the fans.
Despite my disappointment in Prometheus, anything sci-fi that Ridley Scott touches is "must-see" for me. The Martian lands in theaters November 25th.
