The trailer features the theme song "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall" by the British rock band Coldplay. The film will open in Japan on May 5.
Shun Oguri (Hana-Kimi, Hana Yori Dango , Fullmetal Alchemist movie ) and Masaki Okada (Hana-Kimi, BokuKimi, Mahō Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto) star as the title characters in this film.
The story of the film follows two brothers, Mutta (Oguri) and Hibito (Okada), who made a vow as kids to travel to space. The younger brother Hibito did become an astronaut, but not Mutta. However, Mutta's life changes one fateful day.
Koyama's Uchū Kyōdai manga will also receive a television anime adaptation from A-1 Pictures starting this April.
