The first trailer for Brad Pitt’s latest movie “Ad Astra” has been unveiled.
Pitt goes to space in the sci-fi thriller, which also stars Liv Tyler, Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Jamie Kennedy, and Donald Sutherland.
The jam-packed teaser shows Pitt playing an astronaut who has to travel across a “lawless solar system to find his missing father — a renegade scientist who poses a threat to humanity.”
Pitt’s character gets told in the clip, “All life could be destroyed. We’re counting on you to find out what’s happening out there.”
The film was directed by James Gray, who told Collider back in 2017: “The science-fiction genre is so tricky because there are elements of fantasy usually involved, and there are also fantastical elements.”
“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 travelling to the outer edge of our solar system. I have a lot of hopes for it but it is certainly ambitious.”
“Ad Astra” hits theatres September 20.
