Ad Astra Release Date Moved Back to the Fall


Previously scheduled for May 24, 2019 release, Disney is now eyeing a later date for James Gray’s sci-fi film Ad Astra, starring Brad Pitt. According to Deadline, the Ad Astra release date could now be in the fall season, but it will depend on when Gray finishes the movie. Reportedly, a lot of of visual effects work still needs to be completed.

The film features Pitt as autistic space engineer Roy McBride. Twenty years after his father left on a one-way mission to Neptune in order to find signs of extra-terrestrial intelligence, McBride travels through the solar system to find him and understand why his mission failed.

Ad Astra also stars Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Donald Sutherland, Jamie Kennedy and John Finn.

Regency Enterprises and Fox produced the movie with Bona Film Investment Company, which is handling the China release.

As far as the summer season, we’re still awaiting word on what Disney is going to do with 20th Century Fox’s The New Mutants, which was scheduled for an August 2, 2019 release date before Disney bought the studio. Like Ad Astra, there have been no promotions for the X-Men movie by Disney (unlike Dark Phoenix and Stuber).

Directed by Josh Boone, The New Mutants stars Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik, Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane, Charlie Heaton as Cannonball, Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar, Henry Zaga as Sunspot, and Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes.
