‘The Martian’ & ‘Wall-E’ Meet in New Mash-Up Trailer

One of the most most anticipated movies this Fall is easily Ridley Scott’s The Martian. Based on the critically-acclaimed novel by Andy Weir, the movie tells the story of astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon), who after being presumed dead by his crew and NASA following an accident on Mars, is revealed to be alive. With only a limited number of supplies, and a much longer wait ahead of him before his crew can reach him, Watney must find a way to grow food and and get water on Mars, a planet where nothing grows.

While the idea of watching a movie about a guy growing plants on a foreign planet might seem boring or tedious to some, the film actually looks surprisingly riveting, and might just be the film to help get Ridley Scott’s career back on track.

However, a YouTube user named Tony Dolezal (via /Film) decided to combine the stories of both The Martian and another film about someone being alone on a planet, Wall-E, into a new trailer mash-up that will probably make you want to go and watch Wall-E again about a million times, and buy your tickets for The Martian the first chance you get.

Check it out below:

It’s honestly weird how well this mash-up ended up working. The trailer managed to not only make the editing and dialogue from The Martian trailer work, but also made Wall-E look like a much different film, and that might just be the highest compliment you can give to a mash-up like this. For a movie that has almost a completely silent first hour, Wall-E certainly looks like one hell of a thrilling adventure from this trailer.

The Martian is set to hit theatres on October 2nd.
