The answer we seek are just outside our reach, But if we’re to watch Ad Astra it has to be IMAX. Today 20th Century Fox Pictures has released a third UK Trailer that answers any question on what format to watch this mysterious sci-drama is on the big IMAX screen. Outside the actor and curious mystery and dramatic story line, the film will be a visual treat.
From the previous Trailers Brad Pitt has some Daddy issues with his on screen father (played by Tommy Lee Jones). He might also might be trying to destroy our little planet, or is he? Has he found something? The footage we’ve seen so far it’s a dangerous game and Earth wants Roy McBride (Pitt) to find his old man and save us all.
We’re hoping Gray has teased us with a editing master stroke not revealing the films full plot. James Gray’s big strength has always been his visual palette and Ad Astra does have a 2001/Interstellar tone to it. We’re hoping this film is not just eye candy to get us to watch a gorgeous looking film in IMAX format. Hopefully not just all visual no dramatic scope, this does look awesome and we have faith!
Astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his missing father (Tommy Lee Jones) and to unravel a mystery that threatens the survival of our planet. His journey will uncover secrets that challenge the nature of human existence and our place in the cosmos.
The film co-stars Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, James Gray, Rodrigo Teixeira, Anthony Katagas.
