ad astra

We’ve been wanting to learn more about Fox’s upcoming release of ‘Ad Astra’ and a new IMAX trailer not only reveals new details about the film but has featured exactly how spectacular the film looks! We haven’t been seeing Brad Pitt do a lot of genre work in a leading role and this science fiction drama seems to be a perfect fit for the actor.

One of the significant portions of the plot will have Pitt’s character search for his father, who is played by Tommy Lee Jones. While I’m eager to see these two iconic actors working across from one another, I suspect that they won’t have much screen time together in the film from what all of the trailers have shown us so far.

You knew a film starring Brad Pitt which took place in space would likely have some amazing eye candy but the true beauty of this film is finally being shown off in the IMAX ‘Ad Astra’ trailer which you can see right here!


This is easily the best looking trailer which they’ve released to date. I also enjoy how much we’re finally seeming to learn that there is some form of an external threat to Earth and that Pitt’s character has a mission “to stop an uncontrolled antimatter reaction that threatens our entire solar system.” It isn’t clear if this is alien, manmade, or something else entirely. Either way, I want to know what it is and am looking forward to seeing this in an IMAX theater!
