Directed and co-written by James Gray; starring Brad Pitt, Ruth Negga, Tommy Lee Jones and Liv Tyler, Ad Astra is the story of an Army Corps engineer (Pitt) who’s searching across the galaxy for his father; a man who disappeared twenty years prior.
He’s also on a mission to unravel a mystery that threatens the survival of our planet…
It’s the very likeable Mr Pitt, a promise of good visuals and what looks like a moving story. Everything to like.
The father / son ‘love story’ part makes me think of Interstellar (2014). I’m sure the films are quite difference but I look forward to finding out.
Kimberly Elise, Loren Dean, LisaGay Hamilton and John Ortiz also star.
The plot of Criminal involves the planting of a deceased persons skills and memories into another individual. Sounds a lot like sci-fi to me, But it’s the brand new action / drama from director of The Iceman (2012), Ariel Vroman. Ryan Reynolds, Gary Oldman, Kevin Costner and Gal Gadot are the stars…
This trailer, though not perfect, I’m interested. The involvement of Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones gives me the most hope.
I’m curious as to why, knowing the outline of the plot as I do… I wonder why Criminal isn’t categorised under sci-fi. Does its categorisetion really mean that science makes it possible for one person’s skills to be implanted into another? If so, forget Rosetta Stone; I’m acquiring Italian Language skills the new way!
The new Jason Bourne movie trailer starring Matt Damon is here and it looks good…
I never did get round to watching the version of the franchise that starred Jeremy Renner, The Bourne Legacy (2012). I mean, I am a Renner fan but Damon just makes it look more exciting somehow. Perhaps it’s similar to the way I know that Sean Connery makes a good James Bond, but Daniel Craig is my ultimate.
