Brad Pitt as you’ve never seen him before… Ad Astra, a James Gray movie starring Once Upon A Time in Hollywood’s Cliff Booth actor will be out on October 2, 2019 in France. A space movie in line with Gravity and Interstellar starring Brad Pitt as Roy McBride, an astronaut willing to take all the risks to save his father and find a way to save the humanity.
The cast also includes Ruth Negga (Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, World War Z, Preacher…), Liv Tyler (Armageddon, The Lord of the Rings…), Donald Sutherland (Horrible Bosses, Hunger Games…) and even Tommy Lee Jones (Men in Black, Malavita, Jason Bourne…) as Roy McBride’s father Clifford McBride – astronaut and who disappeared on the borders of the universe.
Astronaut Roy McBride ventures to the borders of the solar system looking for his missing father and find a solution to save our planet. During his journey, he will have to face revelations jeopardizing the very nature of the human existence and our place in the universe.
Ad Astra is a beautiful and complex movie that reminds uf of 2001, a Space Odyssey because of its structure and its plot, praising Bradd Pitt to the skies as he's absolutely remarkable as an astronaut reluctantly looking for his father. The photograph - by Hoyte Van Hoytema - is breathtaking whether it's the futuristic vision of the Earth, the coldness of the moon's landscape or Neptune's blue rings, as intriguing as enchanting.
Yet we might regret that even though the whole bold scenario, the movie suffers from some lengths... But it's to appreciate the pictures even more. We also love Brad Pitt's character, of a rare depth, that reminds us of The Tree of Life (by Terrence Malick). In other words, a true masterpiece to enjoy to your heart's content.
