“He wasn’t lying.”

Asa Butterfield plays the first human born on Mars who travels to Earth for the first time in the upcoming American science-fiction adventure film, “The Space Between Us”.

Asa Butterfield The Space Between Us


Originally titled, “Out of This World”, and aptly so, the movie centres on Asa’s character as he experiences the wonders of the planet through fresh eyes. Ah, yes, of course with the help of a love interest, a role taken on by Britt Robertson.

The official synopsis is as follows:

In this interplanetary adventure, a space shuttle embarks on the first mission to colonise 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 (played by Asa Butterfield) – an inquisitive, highly intelligent boy who reaches the age of 16 having only met 14 people in his very unconventional upbringing.

The Space Between Us

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 (played by Britt Robertson). 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.

Directed by Peter Chelsom (of “Serendipity” fame), the film stars Asa Butterfield, Britt Robertson, Gary Oldman, and Carla Gugino.

“The Space Between Us” is slated to be released on 19th August 2016.
