Ad Astra Looks Amazing! Here’s Why.

I’m Geeking Out over Ad Astra So Hard Right Now!

Brad Pitt is dreamy talented stunning the goddamn Gregory Peck of my generation. I have no problem saying I’ve been a fan since back in the 90s, even when it wasn’t cool for guys to like him. By the way, that was because we all wished we were him and were too ashamed to admit it. He’s gone from playing “a real outlaw” in Thelma and Louise and matured into characters like Tyler Durden and Lt. Aldo Raine over the span of an amazing career. His newest release, Ad Astra has me itching to rush to my local theater and hand him and the studio a couple dozen dollars to see it.

The Film’s Other Merits

Okay, so beyond my obsession man-crush on Brad Pit, the movie also features Tommy Lee Jones and Liv Tyler.  Now, I don’t have a man-crush on Tommy Lee Jones (he’s not my type — sorry, Mr. Jones), but I have had a real crush on Liv Tyler since I saw her and Alicia Silverstone in Aerosmith videos back in the ’90s. I’ve been waiting for her to do a real space movie since she had to pretend to care about Ben Affleck all those years ago

The Plot and Concept

There’s not much out yet other than what you see on iMDB and in the trailer…

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

…but I like the idea that there seems to be a compelling B-story with the dad. Also, that damn rover race on the lunar (or wherever it turns out to be) surface looks fracking RAD! I can’t wait to watch this one and tell you all about it.
