Astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his missing father and 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.
A little nerdy moment brought to you by me, but did you know AD ASTRA translated from Latin means ‘to the stars’? To add even further onto that, it is part of the popular Latin phrase ‘ Per aspera ad astra’, which translates roughly to ‘through hardships to the stars’. There is your mini Latin lesson for today.
The film stars Brad Pitt (Fury, World War Z), Tommy Lee Jones (Men in Black 3, Lincoln), Ruth Negga (“Preacher”, Loving), Liv Tyler (“Harlots”, “Gunpowder”), and Donald Sutherland (Measure of a Man, The Hunger Games series).
AD ASTRA is directed by James Gray (The Immigrant, The Lost City of Z). Gray co-wrote the script with Ethan Gross (Klepto, “Fringe”). The film is produced by Pitt, Gray, Dede Gardner (Selma, Moonlight), Jeremy Kleiner (The Big Short, Twelve Years a Slave), Anthony Katagas (Nerve, Two Lovers), Rodrigo Teixeira (The Witch, Call Me By Your Name), and Arnon Milchan (The Revenant, Mr. and Mrs. Smith).
