Matt Damon heads back into space in the Ridley Scott directed “The Martian”

Not too much is shown in this first glimpse we have received in the Ridley Scott space adventure. Jessica Chastain, Michael Pena, Sebastian Stan and Aksel Hennie all join Matt Damon in this is video diary which takes a brief look at the cast that is on board the spaceship Hermes and their mission to Mars.  “The Martian” is based on a book by Andy Weir and is Ridley Scott’s first movie back in space since Alien…I know you’re thinking Prometheus but I just try and forget that ever happened.

here’s a the official synopsis:

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.

Chances are, though, he won’t have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old “human error” are much more likely to kill him first.

But Mark isn’t ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?
