Anything can happen at Comic-Con and frequently does. Case in point: Sir Ridley Scott is in production on a film in Australia but still managed to introduce the first full-length trailer for season two of The Man in the High Castle.
Mark Damon stars as astronaut Mark Watney in Ridley Scott’s adaptation of The Martian by Andy Weir. During the Ares Mission to Mars, a storm forces the crew to abort the mission and, believing Watney to be dead, leave without them.
With scant supplies, Watney has to figure out a way to contact mission control and then survive until help can arrive.
The Martian will be in theaters on October 2nd. Meet the crew of the Ares Mission following the jump – then check out the first full-length trailer!

Beginning with the discovery of Frank Poole’s frozen body, floating in space, 3001: The Final Odyssey offers an extraordinary range of complex characters with conflicting agendas, stunning visuals and dark, thematic meditations on the final fate of all Humankind.’
