Forget The Martian – the sci-fi movie’s sequel should really create some Oscar buzz.

Matt Damon, Kim Kardashian West and Ellen DeGeneres star in a new spoof trailer for a followup to Damon’s box-office hit – and it’s the perfect example of why Uranus jokes just don’t get old.

“First they sent him to Mars and left him for dead,” says the narrator in the trailer for Stuck on Uranus, set to air on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday. “Now, they’re sending him back into space into a place no human has ever gone before ”

“I’m Mark Watney, and I’m stuck on Uranus,” Damon announces, completely deadpan. “Even if I could make contact, it would take eight years for another person to reach Uranus. So I’m left with only one option. I’m going to have to explore the surface of Uranus.”

DeGeneres, who plays the head of NASA, calls for the foremost expert on Uranus – naturally, it’s Kardashian West.

“Did somebody say Uranus?” the reality star says.

“No matter what happens, tell the world, tell my family that I never stopped fighting to get off of Uranus,” Damon says.

“You could say he was stuck on Uranus or you could say he was left behind,” DeGeneres quips to the audience.
