The Space Between Us, a blend of science fiction and coming of age drama, hits Blu-ray May 16 via Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
The story centers on Gardner Elliot (Asa Butterfield), a 16-year-old who is the first human born on Mars. His astronaut mother (Janet Montgomery) died giving birth to Gardner, and though he’s had a nurturing parental figure (Carla Gugino) help him through his adolescence, he desperately wants to travel to Earth and find his father.
Helping him on his journey is Tulsa (Britt Robertson), a tough minded high school student who is Gardner’s only friend on Earth. Gary Oldman co-stars as the mastermind behind the Mars mission that changed the face of humanity.
The Space Between Us performed below expectations at the box office, and hopefully this well crafted drama finds its audience on home video and Digital HD (its digital release is set for May 2).
