Ad Astra Trailer

When a peculiar cataclysmic event creates chaos on Earth, astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) is tasked with trying to figure out what went wrong. That’s the set-up for the new movie Ad Astra, in which NASA and the military thinks this Earth-shattering event is somehow tied to a secret mission that Roy’s father (Tommy Lee Jones) embarked on 20 years ago. What follows is a psychological mystery that looks like it will warp our minds and give us a sci-fi drama on par with the likes of Arrival and Interstellar.
