One of the most recent ‘Ad Astra’ clips took us on a “moon chase” and this one shows off the terrain of Mars! The clip shows Brad Pitt’s Roy McBride joining Ruth Negga’s Helen Lantos riding across the surface of the red planet in a rover while having what feels like a pretty casual conversation. That is, outside of the mention of underground tunnels that lead to a ship. It isn’t clear if this spaceship has something to do with escaping the planet or another aspect of the film’s plot.

While I’m digging the look of the film, and each of the trailers have gotten better, I still haven’t been getting the feeling that this is a “paranoid thriller” as they’ve recently been describing it. I do like how it looks but that “paranoid” piece just hasn’t been shining through in the promos for the film so far.
Even without this feeling present, it absolutely looks good enough to want to check out when the movie is released later this month!
