A Million Miles Away–Michael Peña stars in astronaut biopic

Having Michael Peña in your movie just makes it better.  His absence from Ant-Man: Quantumania left a big gap for fans of the movie series.  He’s the lead in his next film, a biopic of NASA space shuttle Discovery mission specialist José Hernández, an engineer on the STS-128 mission to the International Space Station.  A Million Miles Away hails from Amazon Studios and heads to Prime Video next month.  Peña is always good as the everyman underdog hero going back to Homicide: Life on the Street, and the movie’s trailer reveals the story of a migrant worker working his way up, like the students in Kevin Costner’s McFarlandUSA, one of our favorite movies of the past decade.

Directed by Alejandra Márquez Abella, the movie co-stars Rosa Salazar, Garret Dillehunt, Julio Cesar Cedillo, Veronica Falcón, and Michelle Krusiec.  Check out this trailer for A Million Miles Away:

Look for A Million Miles Away on Prime Video, streaming September 15, 2023.
