Trailer for “The Martian”

Excuse me while I nerd out a bit.

A warning: This looks absolutely amazing, especially if you’ve read the book, but this trailer is VERY spoileriffic.

The trailer looks very serious. I just hope they remember to keep in all the humor. That said, if I had to cast anybody to play Mark, it would probably be Matt Damon.

Also: Yes, a dust storm that strong on Mars is scientifically impossible. According to the author he originally had the issue be purely technical but decided to fudge the science in this particular case to fit with his man vs. nature theme. I thought it was a good idea. Can we move on?
