The Martian: Watch a New Clip, Promo, and Interview with Ridley Scott and the Cast
Astronauts on the ISS have already been treated to an early screening of The Martian, but the rest of us have to wait until next weekend. Until then, we can sate ourselves with a new clip, promo, and interview with the director and cast that all preview Ridley Scott's latest sci-fi opera:





In the clip, Jeff Daniels's mildly annoying bureaucrat is trying to concoct a plan to rescue Mark Watney, and insists that it will take no more than three months, while the researchers' estimates are three times as high. But it looks like they'll just have to work a lot of overtime, because "if [they] fail, Mark dies." In the promo, the Earth rallies around Mark Watney, which I can only assume would happen in real life. An astronaut stranded on another planet would certainly capture the public's attention, just as the movie has.

Finally, a new interview with Ridley Scott and cast members Matt Damon, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Mara, Mackenzie Davis, Donald Glover, and Jeff Daniels reveals some new footage from the film, as well as a few spoilers, if you haven't read the book yet:
