The official trailer for Yungblud’s forthcoming short film ‘Mars’ has been released. The movie is based on a 2020 track of the same name by the Doncaster musician from his second studio album, ‘Weird!’
The project, which is based in the north of England, is dubbed a candid and amusing short film of teenage self-discovery. Charlie Acaster, the main character, is portrayed by Yasmin Finney from ‘Heartstopper’.
Now, an official one-minute trailer has given fans a sneak peek at ‘Mars’. In the opening scene of the clip, teenager Acaster describes how she goes to this group where she is asked if she has something to share with the other members.
A voiceover adds: “These are the voyages of Charlie Acaster and friends. We may be pioneers, but that doesn’t ever mean we’re travelling alone.”
In the video, Finney’s character wears a silver space suit and is shown hanging out with Acaster and co. on the Blackpool seafront. The video has a synthesised, futuristic instrumental background track.

In a statement, Yungblud (aka Dominic Harrison) explained: “I’m so honoured to present you our beautiful film, ‘Mars’. I believe this is the start of something truly groundbreaking and truly special.”
“This all came from the idea that we could facilitate bringing characters to life by assembling a team of cast and crew that fully represent the communities whose stories we wanted to tell. We set out to bring talented creatives together, some experienced, some whose star was already rising and some who’d never been on a film set before.”
He continued: “Giving people a platform to tell their stories with truth and integrity means so much to me, and I feel that’s what we’ve achieved with this film. The love, friendship and warmth I felt being around this beautiful team was a hugely powerful experience, and I truly feel gives a little glimpse into the lives of young people.”
