Love could bring one to the ends of the Earth, but would it be enough to send you to Mars? Go on an out-of-this-world adventure with Max Original film Moonshot, a romantic comedy with a sci-fi twist, premiering Thursday, March 31 exclusively on HBO GO.
Set in a future where Mars has been terraformed and colonised by the best that humanity has to offer, Moonshot follows two college students – Walt and Sophie, who team up to sneak onboard a space shuttle to the red planet just to reunite with their significant others.
Like many 20-somethings her age, Sophie is faced with a world of choices and the momentous one topping the list is what to do about her boyfriend Calvin. A published scientist, Calvin is supposedly posted to Mars temporarily but begins to feel permanent. On the other hand, Walt is an assistant barista at the college bookshop who is contented with his job and his solitary existence until he meets Ginny. Walt is convinced Ginny is the one for him, but she flies off to a new life on the red planet. As Walt and Sophie set off to Mars in seek of love, their lively journey winds up taking them both wildly and unexpectedly off course.
Moonshot stars Cole Sprouse (Riverdale, Three Steps To You), Lana Condor (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy, Alita: Battle Angel), Mason Gooding (Scream, Love, Victor”), Emily Rudd (Fear Street trilogy, Hunters) and Zach Braff (Cheaper by the Dozen, Garden State).
