The Ares 3 crew get grilled in viral promo for The Martian

The crew of Ridley Scott's The Martian are the subject of a new viral video in which the ten astronauts are put under the spotlight. Much like the previous clip, the actors are in character as a NASA psychologist interviews them following a stint in isolation.

If you've caught the first trailer for the sci-fi thriller then you'll know that Matt Damon leads the cast as Mark Watney. And judging by his responses in this new promo, his wry sense of humor is prevalent even before his fellow crew leave him on Mars after a particularly nasty sandstorm. Have a look at the crew of the Ares 3 below:

A 10-day isolation test certainly evokes an amusing response from Damon's character, while some of the remaining cast, Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Sebastian Stan and Aksel Hennie, also show they've got the comedy schtick down. The Martian opens on September 30 in the UK and October 2 in the US.
