20th Century Fox has released the newest trailer for Ad Astra starring Brad Pitt as Roy McBride, an astronaut searching for his father (Tommy Lee Jones), who left for a space mission to find extra-terrestrial life on Neptune.
This once simple mission has now turned into a possible conspiracy that could affect all of humanity on planet Earth as we know it, and it will be up to Roy to unravel it and uncover the truth. Check out the trailer below.
Pitt’s stoic performance, surrounded by the amazing production design and captured by the shot selections, is simply making me very excited to watch this on the big screen. I can’t help but think that there is more to it than the trailer is letting on. There are so many questions like what exactly happened out there that could have pushed the US Defense to go to McBride and ask him to bring his father home to answer for these mysterious and cataclysmic events? What exactly do any of these characters believe on the grand scale of our existence? And how far are they willing to go to find these answers and what are they hiding from each other.
Of course, revealing all these answers would ruin everything. But as layered as this film is, we could be getting something that is deep and profound, and much more than just a simple mystery that takes place in space.
Twenty years after his father left on a one-way mission to Neptune in order to find signs of extra-terrestrial intelligence, astronaut Roy McBride travels through the solar system to find him 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.
Ruth Negga, Donald Sutherland, Jamie Kennedy, John Finn, Kimberly Elise, Bobby Nish, LisaGay Hamilton, and John Ortiz also star.
Ad Astra will open in theaters on September 20, 2019. Click right here for the previous trailer if you missed it.
