Trailer for Sweet Drama ASTRONAUT Sees Richard Dreyfuss Go to Space
Here’s a trailer for the film Astronaut, about an elderly man played by Richard Dreyfuss who is fascinated with space. When a rich man puts together a lottery for someone to be able to take a trip into space, the man knows he has to be the one to go. It’s like an old-man version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, in space. It looks like it may border on cheesy, but it will be a nice family friendly film, and it’s always nice to see Richard Dreyfuss.
Here’s the synopsis:
Angus, a lonely widower, has his long-extinguished dream to become an astronaut reignited when a national competition is announced. The prize? One ticket for a trip to space! Way over the age-limit, Angus alters his birthdate so he can enter the competition. Against all odds, but with help coming from his dysfunctional family, he must battle against preconceptions, ill health and time, to win the ticket and take the trip of his dreams.
Watch the trailer below and let us know whether you’d rather go on a week-long journey into space, or inherit a chocolate factory.
Astronaut will fly into select theaters and be available on VOD on July 26th.
