OK, this looks really cheesy, and the “You make me human” line sounds like it could potentially be this decade’s “You complete me,” but there’s no denying that the Peter Chelsom-directed and Allan Loeb-penned The Space Between Us looks compelling. Space, light sci-fi, road trip, and even a love story, what’s not to like? Well, there might be a lack of gore for all you gore hounds, but you appreciate more than just gore, right?
Just watch the trailer in the player, and maybe your views will change if you’re starkly opposed.
The Space Between Us Synopsis:
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.
Eager to find his father, Gardner escapes the team of scientists and joins with Tulsa on a race against time to unravel the mysteries of how he came to be, and where he belongs in the universe.
The Space Between Us stars Gary Oldman, Asa Butterfield, Carla Gugino, and Britt Robertson, and will be released December 16, 2016.
