There is absolutely no denying that 2019 is the year of Brad Pitt.
Mere weeks after receiving high praise out of Cannes for his work in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood 20th Century Fox has just dropped a trailer for Pitt’s other high profile project, September’s Ad Astra.
The film, a long referenced awards hopeful from director James Gray, shows Pitt as astronaut Roy McBride as he is sent to the outer edges of the solar system in search of his father (Tommy Lee Jones), a fellow astronaut who disappeared two decades prior after venturing out into the vast realm of space in search for extraterrestrial life.
The film was initially set to be released by 20th Century Fox but will now be distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, which acquired the famed studios and its Fox Searchlight subsidiary earlier this year. The film should provide an interesting look come award season, offering an inside look at how much attention Disney is set to offer its "new" projects.
Liv Tyler, Donald Sutherland, and Ruth Negga co-star in the film, which is set to blast into theaters September 20 though I wouldn't be surprised if it receives a premiere at either Venice or Toronto earlier that month.
Check out the trailer below.
