We saw the first trailer last week, and now Disney’s 20th Century Fox has started airing a new Ad Astra commercial as well. You can watch the Ad Astra commercial below and you’ll find the previously-released poster in the gallery underneath.
Directed by James Gray, the sci-fi film stars Brad Pitt as astronaut Roy McBride, who 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.
Ad Astra also stars Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler, and Donald Sutherland.
James Gray previously talked about his goal for the movie. “What I’m trying to do is the most realistic depiction of space travel that’s been put in a movie and to basically say, ‘Space is awfully hostile to us.’ It’s kind of a Heart of Darkness story about traveling to the outer edge of our solar system,” he said.
Regency Enterprises and Fox produced the movie with Bona Film Investment Company, which is handling the China release. Ad Astra is scheduled for a September 20, 2019 release.
