A new clip from upcoming Brad Pitt space adventure Ad Astra has arrived, allowing us to take a spin on the moon. Well, vicariously at least.
Is it only us who is reminded of classic arcade space video games like Moon Cresta and Moon Patrol while watching this? Well, until it goes all Mad Max…
As previously reported, Pitt plays astronaut Roy McBride, who travels to the outer edges of the solar system to track down his missing father. It’s bigger than just a missing family member, however, as McBride’s journey will apparently “uncover secrets that challenge the nature of human existence and our place in the cosmos”. Heavy!
Oh, if you’re wondering, “ad astra” is Latin for “to the stars”.
Ad Astra also stars Liv Tyler and Donald Sutherland, and is set for an Australian cinema release on September 19.
