Trailer: The Space Between Us

This interesting sci-fi film from STX Entertainment stars Asa Butterfield (Ender’s Game) as the first human to be born in Mars.

His existence has constantly been covered up by NASA, who cautions him against travelling back to Earth, even if just to meet a girl he initially falls with online (played by Tomorrowland‘s Britt Robertson).

Sounds familiar?

It’s basically Robert Heinlein’s Stranger In A Strange Land, with twice the sappiness (to hook the Twilight crowd in) and without its hero’s Messianic powers and pretensions.   Now why isn’t the late author’s estate calling the filmmakers on this????

One thought on “Trailer: The Space Between Us

  1. Man, my heart sank and settled in a pool of blood at my heels when I realized they’d taken one of my favorite books and “Twilight”ed it. I so wanted to see Valentine Michael Smith take over the world (in his own way, of course)!!
