The Astronaut Farmer is a 2006 Adventure Comedy film released on 15th October; Michael Polish directed the film which stars Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thornton, and Bruce Dern. The film was a box office failure, making a loss of $1,869,111 on its budget.

Texan Charles Farmer left the Air Force as a young man to save the family ranch when his dad died. Like most American ranchers, he owes his bank. Unlike most, he's an astrophysicist with a rocket in his barn - one he's built and wants to take into space. It's his dream. The FBI puts him under surveillance when he tries to buy rocket fuel, and the FAA stalls him when he files a flight plan – but Charles is undeterred.
