The Trailer for Andy Weir’s THE MARTIAN Looks Fantastic

You guys know that I am not much of a movie fan, and especially not much of a science fiction movie fan.

Matt Damon stars in the movie being made from the book, and even I will admit that the newly released trailer looks fantastic.

  1. Yeeha! I loved The Martian, not only for its good storytelling—sending the MC up an tree and then throwing rocks at him—but also for the heavy reliance on science.

  3. The book is on my queue to be read, and this trailer just makes me look forward to reading it more. I just need to decide if I want to read it or listen to it; I’ve heard great things about the audible version. Decisions decisions…
