STX Entertainment has released a new trailer for the upcoming The Space Between Us. Asa Butterfield stars as Gardner, the first human born on Mars. When he gets the chance to visit Earth, he escapes the confines of NASA, meets up with a girl he met on the internet and goes looking for for his unknown father.
As described above, it almost sounds like a late 80s space-themed adventure — like Flight of the Navigator — but the trailer suggests more of a teen coming of age film with some space related complications, like Gardner’s brittle body.
The Space Between Us opens on August 19th.
