Disney’s 20th Century Fox continues to release small bits of footage from Ad Astra daily, but this creepy clip takes things to a whole new level. We’re actually not sure if you should watch the clip ahead of seeing the film, as it seems to give away an intense scene. If you do want to watch it now, you can do so below, and you’ll find all the previously-released clips and trailers here.
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.
Opening in theaters on Friday, September 20 and 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.
