As Ad Astra joins the ever-growing bank of influential space exploration movies, we took a big, big, BIG step back and mapped out all of the distances traveled in some of our favorite space movies of all time!


Ad Astra takes Brad Pitt on a journey to the stars, but is really much more concerned with the smaller, the quieter, the more internal parts of his life. And as a result, when James Gray's belated sci-fi drama comes to its close, audiences will be left with a lot of questions.


The Ad Astra cast consists of several top-tier actors and actresses, and they've come together to bring a new space movie to theaters. The Lost City of Z's James Gray directed the 2019 science fiction drama, and co-wrote the screenplay with Ethan Gross.


Ad Astra is this fall's big new sci-fi movie and is already garnering strong reviews, but what does the title mean? Directed and co-written by James Gray, with Ethan Gross also in charge of the script, Ad Astra stars Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Liv Tyler, Ruth Negga, and Donald Sutherland.


In Ad Astra we follow astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) as he travels into deep space to find his missing father, Clifford McBride (Tommy Lee Jones), who disappeared on a mission looking for extra-terrestrial intelligence and now, 30 years later, threatens the entire universe. Roy’s journey through the unforgiving solar system uncovers secrets that threaten human life on Earth as we know it and will challenge the nature of human existence and its place amongst the cosmos.
