Distant, one of the first films on the 2023 release schedule, is a sci-fi survival adventure that audiences will appreciate. However, coming from the filmmaking team behind movies like Blades of Glory and Office Christmas Party, there may be a healthy dose of humour in the mix.
A few significant sci-fi films are scheduled for release in 2023, including Dune Part Two and the Adam Driver-starring 65. How well will Distant compare to them?
Here is everything you know about Distant.
Distant Release Date
On January 27, 2023, Distant is slated to be released for US moviegoers, with its initial theatrical run. On February 10, the film will then have its UK debut.
Who Could be in the Cast of Distant?
Naomi Scott and Anthony Ramos are the main act for Distant. The character Andy Ramirez, played by Ramos, is a junior space mining engineer who finds himself in a life-or-death predicament. Scott portrays Naomi Calloway, a member of Ramirez’s crew.
Ramos was a significant contributor to the Hamilton original cast and, like many of his contemporaries, has successfully transitioned from theatre to movie. He appeared in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the Will & Grace revival, Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born, and, most importantly, he played the lead in In the Heights. In addition to Distant, he also stars in the blockbuster Transformers: Rise of the Beasts and the Disney Plus Marvel series Ironheart, so 2023 is going to be a huge year for him.

Naomi Scott is no stranger to blockbuster films; she had leading roles in 2017’s Power Rangers, the live-action Aladdin as Jasmine, and the ill-fated Charlie’s Angels reboot. Her most recent appearance was in the short-lived series Anatomy of a Scandal.
The Distant cast also includes Game of Thrones actor Kristofer Hivju, who plays a character named Dwayne, and Zachary Quinto from Star Trek, who voices the AI system that assists Andy Ramirez.
What will happen in Distant?
Spenser Cohen, who also penned Moonfall, a science fiction film set in 2022, wrote Distant. Here is the movie’s official plot summary:
“Not every astronaut enjoys fame and fortune. Some are merely blue-collar workers like Andy Ramirez, who hasn’t received any training for days like these.
“Andy was a low-level mining engineer on a cargo ship that was hit by an asteroid and crash-landed on an unidentified alien planet. Finding another survivor is Andy’s last hope to escape this situation alive because his air is running low and his AI survival gear isn’t helping.
“Andy believes his prayers have been heard when he establishes a radio connection with Naomi, another crew member. Up to the point when he learns that Naomi is locked within her escape pod and that he might not have enough oxygen to reach her. And Andy hasn’t yet realised that he will be followed by alien beings at every turn.”
Is there any Trailer for Distant?
With a January 27 release date, the absence of a trailer for Distant is a little unexpected. We’ll update this post when one is available.
