Eva Green stars in Proxima, the story of an astronaut and her relationship with her daughter – and here’s the trailer for the movie.

Cineworld has become the first UK cinema chain to formally announce its reopening, with the news that its cinemas will be unlocking their doors and welcoming audiences from July 10th.

But what will they be able to watch? Well, we learned yesterday that Disney is looking to re-release Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back  for a start (although that’s going to be a Vue exclusive by the looks of things). Now, though, Picturehouse Entertainment has offered another option, as it’s announced it’s releasing the film Proxima on July 10th.

It’s from director Anna Winocour, and stars Eva Green. The movie had originally been set for release in May, before matters took hold.

Here’s the official trailer for the film, to give an idea as to what’s in store…

And here’s the synopsis too…

Eva Green gives a career best performance in this epic and emotionally charged new drama from acclaimed director Alice Winocour. Green plays Sarah, a French astronaut training at the European Space Agency in Cologne. The only woman in the arduous programme she has been chosen to be part of the crew of a year-long space mission called ‘Proxima’. Putting enormous strain on her relationship with her daughter (played by outstanding newcomer Zélie Boulant-Lemesle), the training begins to take its toll on both as Sarah’s training progresses and the launch looms ever closer. Featuring stunning performances from the entire cast which includes Matt Dillon, Lars Eidinger and Sandra Hüller, Winocour’s new film is an unmissable cinematic experience which will take audiences on a gripping, emotional and life-affirming journey.

More on the movie as we hear it.
