Ad Astra Trailer

"Are you truly sure that you're ready to go on this voyage?" 20th Century Fox has released a second official trailer for the epic sci-fi thriller Ad Astra, from filmmaker James Gray (of We Own the Night, The Lost City of Z). The first trailer debuted just last month and it was a spectacular reveal. Brad Pitt stars as an astronaut who travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his missing father. Twenty years after his dad left on a one-way mission to Neptune to find signs of extra-terrestrial intelligence, Roy McBride travels throughout our solar system to find him and understand why his mission failed. He uncovers extraordinary secrets which challenge the nature of human existence and our place in the cosmos. This also stars Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Donald Sutherland, Jamie Kennedy, John Finn, Kimberly Elise, Bobby Nish, LisaGay Hamilton, and John Ortiz. Featuring a new score by Max Richter. So incredibly excited to see this. Looks better and better the more they show us. So many jaw-dropping shots in this new trailer.

Here's the second official trailer (+ new poster) for James Gray's Ad Astra, direct from Fox's YouTube:

Astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) 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.

Ad Astra is directed by acclaimed American filmmaker James Gray, director of the films Little Odessa, The Yards, We Own the Night, Two Lovers, The Immigrant, and The Lost City of Z previously. The screenplay is written by James Gray & Ethan Gross. The film was shot in late 2017, then originally set for release in early 2019 after radio silence, but was then pushed back numerous times. 20th Century Fox will now release Gray's Ad Astra in theaters starting September 20th, 2019 coming up this fall.

After seeing the space rover shootout, I'm down. I'm just hoping it's not TOO cerebral.

This looks like a great relief from the summer time superhero drudgery we've been slogging through since the first week of May. Bring this on!

The only movie I've liked by this director was The Immigrant and I loved that film. I've not been able to see his last one Lost City of Z and am bummed I've not had the chance. However, because I liked The Immigrant so much and like Pitt's work I'm for sure going to see this...if I have the opportunity as I just don't go to theaters anymore to see anything with audiences these days iphoning and munching on their popcorn and yammering away. I'll wait and hope it's not too long before it hits cable.

I don't know what unfortunate theaters you've been going to, but I think you've just been unlucky. Theaters are the best way to watch movies, I go all the time. Get back out there! 🙂

No sir! I live in L.A. Worked in the film business for over 40 yrs. It's not the same experience and I quit going 'out there' a long time ago for the reasons I stated. I watch movies everyday on my large flat panel Sumsung HD and I'm fine. I'll never go 'out there' again. Plus, they don't make movies today that absolutely require a big screen experience like say, Lawrence of Arabia. All the great films that need to be seen on a huge screen have already been made. I've not seen one requiring that for over a decade. Perhaps my requirements for viewing films differ from yours. Glad you're going and seeing movies though. I've loved films for 50 yrs. and they've always been an important aspect of my life. Cheers!
