Netflix has released a first trailer for the new Hilary Swank movie Away. They have also announced it will be here soon, very soon. September 4th.
Swank will play a former Navy pilot and US astronaut preparing to lead the first manned mission to Mars with an international crew. This means leaving behind her husband, a NASA engineer (Josh Charles) and her teenage daughter just as life occurrences mean her duties as a wife and mother would be just as important as her command role.
As the crew get closer to Mars and their journey faces challenges the complex dynamics of the crew come to the fore as the effects of them all being away from their loved ones for so long start to take their toll.
Ato Essandoh, Ray Panthaki, Vivian Wu, Mark Ivanir and Monique Curnen co-star.
The show was created by Andrew Hinderaker and showrun by Jessica Goldberg. Executive producers line up for points including Swank herself, Jason Katims, Matt Reeves, Edward Zwick, Adam Kassan and Jeni Mulein.
