20th Century Fox has dropped a new trailer for James Gray’s Ad Astra, the Brad Pitt space drama that looks to be aiming for the perfect center between the intellectualism of Arrival and the visceral action of Gravity.
In the film, astronaut Roy McBride (Academy Award winner Brad Pitt) travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his missing father (Academy Award winner Tommy Lee Jones) 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.
James Gray (The Immigrant, The Lost City of Z) directs and co-wrote the script with Ethan Ross. It is produced by the Oscar-winning team of Plan B: Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, and also James Gray, Anthony Katagas, Rodrigo Teixeira, and Arnon Milchan. It co-stars Donald Sutherland, Liv Tyler and Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga.
Ad Astra is set to land on September 20 from 20th Century Fox and Walt Disney Studios.
