20th Century Fox has released a new television spot for Ridley Scott's upcoming space drama The Martian and it features Community star Donald Glover.

"I know how to save, Mark Watney," NASA astrophysicist Rich Purcell (Glover) confidently declares. Can he be Matt Damon's savior? You'll have to find out when The Martian slingshots into theaters this October.

Check it out in the video below.

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring "the Martian" home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney's safe return.

Based on a best-selling novel, and helmed by master director Ridley Scott, The Martian features a star studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.


The Martian will land in theaters October 2, 2015.
