Despite what the Golden Globes members insist, we wouldn’t quite classify Ridley Scott‘s The Martian as a comedy. However, if you’re looking for a lighter Mars-set tale with a hefty dose of romance, a film landing this summer should pique your interest.  The Space Between Us follows the first human born on Mars (Asa Butterfield) who heads to Earth to experience everything it has to offer, including, of course, love.

The first trailer has now arrived and it feels almost like a Room-esque drama in the sense of experiencing  the world through new eyes. While we’ll have to see if the overtly sentimental tone works, it could be a nice change of pace for the sci-fi genre. Directed by Peter Chelsom and also starring Gary Oldman, Carla Gugino, and Britt Robertson, check out the trailer and poster below.

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.
