First Trailer for ‘The Space Between Us’ is Here

Britt Robertson & Asa Butterfield

STX Entertainment has released the first The Space Between Us trailer and poster for their upcoming sci-fi action flick with more of a teen coming of age sentimental tone.

Directed by Peter Chelsom and starring Gary Oldman, Asa Butterfield, Carla Gugino, Britt Robertson, BD Wong and Janet Montgomery, the story follows a young man raised on Mars who seeks out his birth father and strikes up a friendship with a street-smart Colorado girl.

The Space Between Us opens on August 19. Watch the new trailer and check out the film’s poster below.

Looks a bit cheesy, the title is a little dorky but I really dig the concept – The Fault in Our Stars with gravity instead of cancer. And actual stars. Just kidding, Butterfield and Robertson share genuine chemistry but I don’t trust Chelsom.

Featuring Asa Butterfield

Described as being a “star-crossed science fiction love story,” The Space Between Us follows two teens from different worlds. Gardner Elliot, the first human born on Mars, is secretly raised in an experimental colony after his astronaut mother dies during childbirth. Sixteen years later, Gardner begins an online romance with a girl living in Colorado and hatches a plan to travel across the universe to meet her. Now, on the run, with Earth’s gravity threatening his very existence, Gardner must race against time and nature to find his love and win her heart. Once united, the two teens venture to seek out the enigmatic billionaire who funded the original expedition to Mars, in hopes of uncovering information about Gardner’s mother and the mysterious circumstances surrounding how Gardner came into existence.
