Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) travels to the very edge of the solar system to find his missing father who disappeared on a mission to find alien life 20 years prior—and solve a puzzle that threatens survival on our planet. On his journey, he reveals secrets that question human existence and our place in the cosmos.

The title means ‘to the stars’ in Latin. It is often used as a shorthand for per aspera ad astra (through hardships to the stars).

Director James Gray has said it will feature ‘the most realistic depiction of space travel that’s been put in a movie.’ He’s also described it as ‘Sorta like, if you got “Apocalypse Now” and “2001” in a giant mash-up and you put a little [Joseph] Conrad in there.’

The film reunites Donald Sutherland, Tommy Lee Jones and Loren Dean who previously appeared in ‘Space Cowboys’ (2000).”
