New Ad Astra Trailer & Poster Takes Brad Pitt to the Stars

New Ad Astra Trailer & Poster Takes Brad Pitt to the Stars”

20th Century Fox has debuted a new trailer for James Gray's space odyssey thriller "Ad Astra" featuring Brad Pitt. If you missed the new poster, you can view it in the gallery underneath as well.

The Oscar victor leads the aesthetically arresting preview as astronaut Roy McBride, a committed space traveler hunting for his dad (Tommy Lee Jones), who went missing two decades prior in the middle of an interplanetary excursion in search of alien life on Neptune.

Ad Astra is latin for "to the stars", and was inspired by the first ever nuclear chain reactions that took place at University of Chicago in the 1940s, which some thought would set off unstoppable reactions, or "science out of control", Gray said.

Director James Gray has previously directed films like The Lost City of Z and The Immigrant.

The second trailer gives us a more reflective, cerebral look at the film, opening with Roy, played by Brad Pitt, who is on a mission to find his missing father.

From the get-go, you can already feel a lot of influence from Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Pitt stars alongside Tommy Lee Jones as his father, as well as a cast that also includes Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler and Donald Sutherland. Apart from Ad Astra, Brad Pitt will also be seen in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Ad Astra opens everywhere on September 20, 2019.
