Following last week’s extended clip, Disney’s 20th Century Fox has brought online another Ad Astra clip in which Brad Pitt’s character Roy McBride learns more about the Lima Project and what happened to his father. The anticipated James Gray film opens in theaters on September 20.
Starring Brad Pitt, Ad Astra is a paranoid thriller in space that follows Roy McBride (Pitt) on a mission across an unforgiving solar system to uncover the truth about his missing father and his doomed expedition that now, 30 years later, threatens the universe.
Directed by James Gray (The Lost City of Z, The Immigrant), the sci-fi film also stars Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler, and Donald Sutherland. Regency Enterprises and Fox produced the movie with Bona Film Investment Company, which is handling the China release.
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.
