Sit down with The Space Between Us cast for a look at this Friday’s sci-fi romance
An intergalactic love story set in the not-too-distant future, this Friday’s The Space Between Us stars Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender’s Game) and Britt Robertson (Tomorrowland, The Longest Ride) as a pair of teens that form a unique bond despite having nearly 250 million miles between them. Joining the young stars in The Space Between Us cast is Carla Gugino (Watchmen, San Andreas), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight trilogy, Harry Potter series), BD Wong (Jurassic World, Focus), and Janet Montgomery (Black Swan, Salem). ComingSoon.net recently sat down with several members of The Space Between Us cast and, in the player below, you can watch as Butterfield, Robertson and Gugino talk about what went into building the romantic science fiction adventure.
The Space Between Us follows two teens from different worlds. 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.
In our Space Between Us cast interviews, Butterfield explains that his Gardner is named for Peter Seller’s Chance in Hal Ashby’s immortal 1979 comedy drama Being There. That’s just one of the many classic films that play a role in The Space Between Us.
Directed by Peter Chelsom (Serendipity, Hector and the Search for Happiness), The Space Between Us was scripted by Allan Loeb (The Dilemma, Collateral Beauty). Look for it on the big screen this Friday, February 3.
