Starring: Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler
Like Heart of Darkness set at the end of the universe, AD ASTRA is a gritty exploration of the harshness and sheer uninhabitability of deep space. Engineer Roy McBride (Brad Pitt, THE BIG SHORT) leads a spaceship on a journey to find his long-lost father (Tommy Lee Jones, JASON BOURNE), last seen tracking down aliens somewhere around Neptune. But to get there, they’ll have to face cosmic explosions, government conspiracies, and hey, what was the deal with those aliens again?

Directed by James Gray (THE LOST CITY OF Z) and featuring a stellar supporting cast (including Ruth Negga and Donald Sutherland), AD ASTRA is a cerebral sci-fi thriller for those of us whose favorite cinematic genre is “everything goes completely bat-shit in outer space.” Get your helmet on and strap in.
