Watch Matt Damon on Mars in The Martian

Andy Weir’s The Martian has had a hell of a journey. Originally self-published in 2011, the science fiction novel about an astronaut trapped on Mars became one of the rare self-publishing hits to break out into the larger literary world. It was republished in 2014 by Crown, and the film adaptation featuring Matt Damon will be released this fall. Check out the first teaser trailer above.
