How Will Brad Pitt’s New Movie (Ad Astra) Compare To The Martian?

Is it just me, or is there a constant flow of new trailers everyday? It seems that every time I turn around there are new trailers flying by. I think it’s due to the rise and rise of streaming services constantly filling our world with new series and movies.

For me, it’s impossible to keep up with it all. I don’t know how anybody could possibly have the time to watch everything on offer these days. By the time you binge on a new series, re-watch the ones that you love or grew up with, watch the ‘exclusive’ movies on stream, watch the new movies that flood the cinemas, there’s no time left to work, or eat, or sleep.

So, here’s another one. A huge star (Brad Pitt) is trying his luck with a movie in space. IMdB describes Ad Astra as “An astronaut travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his father and unravel a mystery that threatens the survival of our planet. He uncovers secrets which challenge the nature of human existence and our place in the cosmos.”

I’ve seen some great ‘space’ movies over recent years, The Martian and Gravity come to mind. I loved them both but The Martian was my favorite book and movie from 2015. Ad Astra sounds exciting. I have high hopes and it looks like Brad Pitt fans are in for a treat.

Ad Astra is due for release in the US 19 September 2019, and soon after in other markets.

Take a look and let me know what you think.

Is it a winner? Will it live up to the hype? Will it be as good as The Martian?

The stakes are high and it looks like there will be some tough challenges for Pitt’s character to overcome. Family vs duty vs survival. I’m impressed with what I’ve seen and this one could be a winner.


Some Other movies that come to mind…

The Martian was my favorite book that year, and the movie was great too.

If you’re up for a New York City thriller full of twists and suspense, then SUBWAY | PALLIATOPIA should be your next read. Hunger Games and Maze Runner fans love it.

They will take your life.
They will take your dreams.
They will take your future.

Palliatopia is the place you don’t want to be, and the place you can never leave.
