Watch the First Trailer for "Approaching the Unknown"--A Much Darker Version of The Martian
There hasn't been much buzz surrounding the upcoming Mars one-man show, Approaching the Unknown, but the first trailer is here, and it's intriguing:



From what we can glean, the film follows Mark Strong as a terminally ill(?) astronaut who goes on a one-way trip to Mars, and has lots of existential angst along the way. For better and for worse, it looks like a cross between The Martian and Sunshine (or, since Strong played Pinbacker in the latter, an ominous prequel to Sunshine), with a little bit of Moon thrown in there. It could be good if the film focuses mostly on the claustrophobic emotional journey, especially since Strong is such a talented actor, or it might be a cheap knock-off that only got greenlit as a result of The Martian's success.

Approaching the Unknown also stars Luke Wilson and Sanaa Lathan, and will open in theaters on June 3.
