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. Starring Gary Oldman (Child 44, Criminal), Asa Butterfield (Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, Hugo, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), Carla Gugino (San Andreas, Watchmen) and Britt Robertson (Mother’s Day, Tomorrowland). The Space Between Us is Directed by Peter Chelsom (Hector and the Search for Happiness, Shall We Dance).



  • Sci fi, Romance

    It's not the greatest movie ever made, HOWEVER it has something about it that is feel good and despite how badly it did on release it is undeserved and well worth a watch. I think £10 is worth it. Gary Oldman is a strange choice for a cast member however does ok but one of his worst performances

    Well made movie with a strong cast, I nearly gave it 4 stars but it didn't quite have enough going on for me. Definitely worth a Sunday afternoon watch though.
