Jeff Daniels wants to rescue Matt Damon in new 'The Martian' clip

Posted on

20th Century Fox

We already know how astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) plans to survive on Mars after being stranded by his crew in The Martian, but the team at NASA has a Hail Mary strategy, too. In the latest clip from the Ridley Scott film, below, NASA administrator Teddy Sanders (Jeff Daniels) makes some big demands to his colleagues (Kristin Wiig, Benedict Wong) after disliking the stats he’s just heard about Mark’s status.

“Get started, I’ll find you the money,” Teddy orders. When Bruce (Wong) assures he’ll do his best, Teddy reminds everyone, “Mark dies if you don’t.”

The Martian lands Oct. 2.
