The second trailer for Ridley Scott’s adaptation of best selling novel The Martian has arrived, fresh off the intergalactic satellite for your viewing pleasure.

Whilst the first trailer had a more serious tone, this new sell gives us a healthy dose of humour to go along with the lofty subject matter, which helps differentiate the film from the likes of Interstellar and Gravity, both of which shared similar themes (and cast members).

The prolific director Ridley Scott hasn’t had a stellar run of late, his last trip into Space was the gorgeous looking but highly flawed Prometheus, and many of his other recent projects have been passable rather than memorable. But if he gets the mixture of Sci-Fi, survival, and suspense just right, this could be one hell of a ride.

THE MARTIAN opens in Australian cinemas September 30th
