James Gray‘s Ad Astra is quickly shaping up to be one of my most-anticipated films of this fall. Its a space exploration film in the same vein as possibly Interstellar, but featuring Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones.
The budget looks sizable, the effects seem well-composed and the story is surrounded by mystery and creativity. I love that the trailers continue to push the plot, but don’t exactly spell out what’s exactly going on underneath the surface.
What the heck happened to Tommy Lee Jones‘ character and why is Brad Pitt the only man right for the job?
I sure hope we find out later this year when the film drops into theaters.
For now, I want to continue knowing as little as possible.
