I know Matthew suggested having the trailer start with the Astronauts already on Mars, but I still think the opening shot should be of Mars through the window of the shuttle. I think this would be a more effective establishing shot as Mars from space is recognisable, whereas from the surface it could be mistaken for a generic desert on Earth or another planet. Anyway, whether we decide to use it or not, I created a scene to get a better idea of what it could look like.
It could look really nice with a bit of jitter and with Mars slowly rotating / getting bigger. Tell me what you think, and, if you have any suggestions regarding this scene in particular then I'll make it quickly in Maya and render it out.
