The Space Between Us
– Though you wouldn’t get it from the trailer, Gardner Elliot is the first person born on Mars but his birth is kept secret from the rest of the world for PR reasons. 16 years later, he travels to Earth to try to discover the true identity of his father and to meet his online friend Tulsa, a girl who has been tossed around foster care. Once on Earth, he discovers that his heart can’t stand the atmosphere and pressure and he must return home. On the run, he rushes to discover his family before it’s too late.
– Stars Gary Oldman, Asa Butterfield, Carla Gugino, Britt Robertson, B. D. Wong, Janet Montgomery, Trey Tucker, Scott Takeda, Adande Thorne, Colin Egglesfield, Gil Birmingham, and Logan Paul. Directed by Peter Chelsom. Rated PG-13.
– The latest in the American Ring horror franchise, because things are already confusing enough and if you include the different forms of media from Japan and Korea, you may not be able to keep straight the different versions of lore and what on Earth is going on. Best to think of it as all different horror dimensions with one original source that now have diverged from the original bad decisions. Rings is a sequel to The Ring, and The Ring Two (which is NOT the same as Ring 2 or Rings which was also a short film already). Add to the confusion that, Rings was originally filmed in 2015 and supposed to be released in late 2015 but was then pushed to two different dates in 2016 to finally February 2017.
Rings is set 13 years after the first The Ring film, and a whole subculture has grown up around the killing video tape, which is odd since still a video tape and it keeps killing people so you think there wouldn’t be time for a subculture. A young woman searches for her boyfriend and exposes herself to the haunted video tape and then discovers her version is larger and can’t be copied (which sort of defeats the purpose of the curse?) and finds out that there’s a movie within the haunted film and gives more clues to Samara’s past.
