The verdict is out on James Gray‘s Ad Astra starring Brad Pitt. Visual strength and appeal is great and so far so good. The film is only just two weeks away and 20th Century Fox Pictures has released a brand new clip.
Entitled ‘Moonrover‘, we see Roy McBride (Pitt) finding himself racing across some sort of moon surface. Who is chasing him? Who wants to stop him getting to the base?
This extended clip looks like it might be one of those scenes made especially for IMAX. The last Trailer for the film highlighted IMAX will be the perfect way to watch the film. The other burning question will this film be one with plenty of action?
There does seem to have action scenes but how many scenes we’re not sure. What some critics have said the film is a lot more melodramatic. Will this be another Interstellar? Unlikely as one critic called the film Apocalypse Now in space! That’s sold us on the film!!!
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 Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler, Donald Sutherland. Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, James Gray, Rodrigo Teixeira, Anthony Katagas.
