This science fiction film follows a crew of astronauts as they embark on a mission to the sun. Their goal is to rekindle the dying star with the explosion of an atomic bomb. The film was directed by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later), and he was said to have been inspired by avant garde science fiction films such as Andrei Tarkovsky's Solaris and Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. To prepare the actors for the film, Boyle had the cast live together and study the topics in which their characters had expertise. The film stars Rose Byrne and Chris Evans.
