20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for Matt Damon's astronaut thriller "The Martian."

"Help is only 140 million miles away," the trailer notes.

Directed by Ridley Scott, "The Martian" follows Damon's astronaut character who's stranded on Mars. He must survive in a brutal environment and find a way to notify NASA that he's still alive. Damon has been stuck for four years at a science station that's designed to support him for 31 days.

The film also stars Kate Mara, Jeff Daniels, Jessica Chastain and Kristen Wiig. Drew Goddard wrote the screenplay, based on Andy Weir's novel of the same name.

Fox screened footage of the pic in April at CinemaCon, where it elicited a strong response from exhibitors.

The film hits theaters on November 25.
