Asa Butterfield’s ‘Space Between Us’ Set for December

STX Entertainment has moved Asa Butterfield’s space saga “The Space Between Us” four months from Aug. 19  to Dec. 21.

The sci-fi adventure is launching five days after Disney opens “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

The Space Between Us” is directed by Peter Chelsom from a script by Allan Loeb from a story by Stewart Schill, Richard Barton Lewis and Allan Loeb. The film also stars Britt Robertson, Gary Oldman, and Carla Gugino.

The film, which was shot last fall in New Mexico, centers on the first human born on Mars traveling to Earth for the first time and embarking on an adventure with a street smart girl to discover how he came to be. But the space program wants to send him back to Mars, since his body can’t handle Earth’s environment.

“Space” will open against Sony’s “Passengers,” starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt as voyagers on a spaceship transporting thousands of sleeping humans to a distant colony; “Assassin’s Creed,” starring Michael Fassbender, and Illumination and Universal’s animated “Sing.”
