The Fault in Our Mars.
This movie about gravity exploding the heart of a boy on mars sure looks romantic.No seriously, that’s literally what the movie is about. Check out the trailer for Peter Chelsom’s oh so cleverly titled The Space Between Us:
In all seriousness, this wasn’t a bad trailer. It’s certainly a unique premise, although it looks like it’ll be somewhat wasted on a cliche romance story, with bonus exasperated Gary Oldman. I’m sure there will be a lot of teenagers who cry when they watch this, but hopefully it’ll actually be a decent flick as well.
I don’t know how a pregnant woman was able to board a spacecraft and NASA be completely oblivious to it, but whatever. The film looks like it has potential, and I really like Asa Butterfield and Oldman, so I’ll at least give the film a chance.
Although this film is scribed by Allan Loeb, writer of countless beloved classics such as San Andreas, Here Comes the Boom, Rock of Ages, Just Go With It, and The Dilemma, so I immediately retract that statement about the film having potential. God help us.
Teenage girls will be crying everywhere when The Space Between Us hits theaters August 18th. Here’s the synopsis:
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.
