Space Warriors, filmed on location at Alabama's U.S. Space and Rocket Center and other locations in Huntsville, Alabama last summer, will have its big premiere tomorrow night, May 31, on the Hallmark Channel.
To set the stage for the space adventure film, Hallmark will also air its 2012's A Smile As Big As The Moon (also filmed at and based on real events that happened at the Space & Rocket Center) immediately at 5 p.m. before Space Warriors comes on at 7 p.m.
If you follow our LocationsHub blog, you may remember an article we wrote earlier this year on Space Warriors and its filming locations. Directed by Sean McNamara (Soul Surfer), the cast of Space Warriors includes Josh Lucas, Dermot Mulroney, Danny Glover, and Mira Sorvino, among others.
In addition to its premiere tomorrow night, Space Warriors also made its debut on the big screen in Huntsville, Alabama, on April 25, 2013.
In the May 28 press release, Space & Rocket Center CEO and Executive Director Dr. Deborah Barnhart said, "It's already aired on the big screen and now to see Space Warriors make its television debut in front of millions of potential viewers is an exciting time for us."
Here's the Space Warriors' trailer.
