Worlds Collide In Asa Butterfield and Britt Robertson’s THE SPACE BETWEEN US Trailer

Watch the first trailer for the YA sci-fi adventure THE SPACE BETWEEN US!

Asa Butterfield and Britt Robertson are taking on the universe in a whole new way in the trailer for their new movie, The Space Between Us!

Butterfield stars as Gardner Elliott, the child of a near-future astronaut who was born on the journey to Mars and grew up on the red planet. Kept secret from society for fear of bad publicity, Gardner knows 14 people in real life– the rest of his friends are on the Internet and don’t know his real story. When he makes a special connection with a struggling teen named Tulsa (played by Britt Robertson,) Gardner begins a whirlwind journey to Earth that will change his world– and possibly cost him his life. The film also stars Gary Oldman, Carla Gugino, and B.D. Wong.

Back in January, we offered up some first look images for the film. Now, you can see the full trailer from STX Entertainment!

The Space Between Us hits theaters on August 19, 2016.

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.
