Watch: Extended TV Spot For Ridley Scott's 'The Martian' Plus New Images From The Film

Last fall, it was Christopher Nolan who took us into outer space with “Interstellar,” and now a year later, Ridley Scott is tasked with wowing audiences with “The Martian.” It’s the filmmaker’s second return to sci-fi following “Prometheus,” and Fox seems to be pretty pumped with a splashy TIFF premiere on the horizon.

The ensemble cast includes Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, Sean Bean, Sebastian Stan, Aksel Hennie, Donald Glover, Mackenzie Davis, and Chiwetel Ejiofor in this adaptation of Andy Weir’s book about an astronaut left behind on the red planet and thought to be dead, only to turn up alive, and forced survive as a rescue mission begins on Earth to try and save him.

Empire has a couple of new snaps from the movie, and this extended TV spot should give you an idea of what’s to come. “The Martian” opens on October 2nd.
