This Friday, 20th Century Fox is releasing the original science fiction drama Ad Astra into theaters. You can get a taste of the James Gray film right now, however, with a pair of new clips viewable in the players below.

Ad Astra (a latin phrase meaning “to the stars”), follows astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) as he travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his missing father and unravel a mystery that threatens the survival of our planet. His journey will uncover secrets that challenge the nature of human existence and our place in the cosmos.
In addition to Pitt, Ad Astra also stars Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler, and Donald Sutherland. The film is produced by Pitt alongside Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, James Gray, Anthony Katagas, Rodrigo Teixeira and Arnon Milchan.
Ad Astra hits regular theaters and IMAX beginning this Friday, September 20.
