Directed by Ridley Scott and starring A-list actors like Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Donald Glover and Jeff Daniels, it promised a thrilling, well-executed experience. Ellen DeGeneres created a hilarious movie trailer entitled “Stuck On Uranus”, which parodies Matt Damon’s No. 1 film The Martian. Note the way a very pregnant Kim tries and fails to hide her growing baby bump with a lab coat.
With that last name, you probably got the joke in the title of the faux-sequel already.
‘I’m Mark Watney, and I’m stuck on Uranus, ‘ he says, deadpan. We dare you to keep a straight face as Damon “explores the surface of Uranus”. Ellen stars as the head of NASA, & Kim Kardashian makes a guest appearance as a “an expert”.
“Did somebody say Uranus?”
‘One man, one planet, one joke, ‘ the voiceover shamelessly admits at the close, while Ellen’s normally excitable audience struggles to chuckle.
In the clip, Matt plays his Martian character, who’s sent back to space – but this time, instead of landing on Mars, he’s headed to Uranus for the sequel Stuck On Uranus.
