Second Full Trailer for 'The Space Between Us' Starring Asa Butterfield
"His heart can't handle our gravity… It's too risky!" STX has released a new trailer for the film The Space Between Us, arriving in theaters December, about the first boy ever born on Mars who returns to Earth and must experience the planet (and young love) for the first time. Perfect timing to launch this trailer, with Elon Musk discussing his plans for colonizing Mars. Asa Butterfield plays the boy, who at age 16 finally returns to Earth. The main aspect of this movie is the love story angle and he falls for a "street smart girl in Colorado named Tulsa", played by Britt Robertson, but has his own physical struggles. The cast includes Carla Gugino, Gary Oldman, BD Wong, Janet Montgomery, and Jenny Gabrielle. As much as I want to be excited to see this, it just looks so schmaltzy and goofy. I hope to be proved wrong when it opens.
Here's the second official trailer for Peter Chelsom's The Space Between Us, direct from YouTube:
In this interplanetary adventure, a space shuttle embarks on the first mission to colonize Mars, only to discover after takeoff that one of the astronauts is pregnant. Shortly after landing, she dies from complications while giving birth to the first human born on the red planet – never revealing who the father is. Thus begins the extraordinary life of Gardner Elliot – an inquisitive, highly intelligent boy who reaches the age of 16 having only met 14 people in his very unconventional upbringing… While searching for clues about his father, and the home planet he’s never known, Gardner begins an online friendship with a street smart girl in Colorado named Tulsa. When he finally gets a chance to go to Earth, he’s eager to experience all of the wonders he could only read about on Mars – from the most simple to the extraordinary. But once his explorations begin, scientists discover that Gardner’s organs can’t withstand Earth’s atmosphere. The Space Between Us is directed by Peter Chelsom (Serendipity, Hector and the Search for Happiness), from a screenplay by Allan Loeb. STX opens this film in theaters December 16th.
