AD ASTRA – in the pipeline since early 2016 – is something of a mix between ‘Interstellar’ and ‘Gravity’, no doubt shooting for Oscar notoriety. Brad Pitt, his second a-typical starring role this year, plays Roy McBride, who travels to Neptune in search of his astronaut father Clifford McBride (Tommy Lee Jones) who went looking for signs of extra-terrestrial intelligence. He never returned.
