THE SPACE BETWEEN US sneak peeks feature tons of new footage and a daring escape!
If you’re looking for a sweet, endearing movie to check out in theaters sometime soon, you’re in luck. The Space Between Us, a quirky romance between Gardner, a boy born on Mars (Asa Butterfield) and Tulsa, the girl he risks his life and heads back to Earth to be with (Britt Robertson).
STX Entertainment released a behind-the-scenes featurette that shows off tons of new footage while discussing the heart of the story with stars Gary Oldman and Carla Gugino, director Peter Chelsom, and writer/producer Richard Barton Lewis.
As you can imagine, Gardner going off-the-grid to be with Tulsa isn’t exactly government sanctioned. A new clip from the film shows an action-packed getaway the two pull off when Nathaniel (Gary Oldman) and Kendra (Carla Gugino) try to take him back into custody.
The Space Between Us hits theaters on February 3, 2017.
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.
