ad astra trailer brad pitt

While Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time In Hollywood is due out next month, Brad Pitt is starring in another blockbuster picture this year, portraying Astronaut Roy McBride in James Gray’s new sci-fi film, Ad Astra. With the movie scheduled to release in September, today we get our first look at the much-anticipated picture.

Pitt’s Roy McBride is on a mission to find his lost father in Ad Astra, as his dad disappeared in space roughly 20 years prior. During his time at the outer edges of the solar system, McBride begins to unravel a mystery that ultimately threatens the survival of Earth.

Tommy Lee Jones stars alongside Pitt as Roy McBride’s father, while Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler, and Donald Sutherland also feature in the film. Directed by James Gray and written by Gray and Ethan Gross, Ad Astra comes to theaters on September 20.
