When Clifford McBride (Tommy Lee Jones) was headed on a one-way mission in search of extra-terrestrial life, his son, Roy (Brad Pitt), waved him off proudly.
Years later, long after Clifford went missing in space, Roy has followed in his father’s heroic footsteps. Now an Army Corps engineer working beyond the boundaries of the atmosphere, concern grows as a daunting ‘Surge’ begins to take over the planet, causing power outages and affecting communication.
As things get more desperate on Earth, Roy delves deeper into his father’s work. Learning of Clifford’s highly classified and dangerous experimentation in the far-flung corners of space, Roy discovers that his missing father’s findings could hold the key to saving the planet.
Recruited for a perilous mission to the depths of space in search of answers, Roy’s desperate attempt to find his father uncovers much more than he bargained for, revealing a very real threat to the entire solar system.
Ad Astra, starring Brad Pitt (The Big Short, World War Z), Tommy Lee Jones (Jason Bourne), and Donald Sutherland (The Hunger Games, American Hangman), offers mystery, thrills and drama, and is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.
