After many delays, Ad Astra, an ambitious new sci-fi epic directed by James Gray starring Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones, has received its first trailer. And it looks great. Think Gravity-meets-Interstellar.
Shot all the way back in 2017, it’s been a long journey getting Ad Astra from the page to the screen. However, in the wake of Disney’s purchase of Fox, the visual effects-heavy film seems to be back on the radar again. Based on the footage in the trailer, the visuals will be worth the extra time.
Astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his missing father and unravel a mystery that threatens the survival of our planet. His journey will uncover secrets that challenge the nature of human existence and our place in the cosmos.
The cast also includes Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler and Donald Sutherland.
Disney/20th Century Fox will release Ad Astra in theatres on September 20.
