Did You Know?
- The first collaboration between Brad Pitt and James Gray. They planned to work together on The Lost City of Z (2016), but Pitt dropped out due to scheduling conflicts. He remained on board as an executive producer.
- Antimatter, when it comes into contact with normal matter, does not cause a "chain reaction", as is stated when Roy is being briefed about the Lima Project. When antimatter and matter come into contact, they mutually annihilate each other into pure energy, using Albert Einstein's E=mc2 equation (100% matter-to-energy conversion). There would be no possibility of an antimatter incident at Neptune affecting Earth, except for the one-time burst of energy that such an explosion would create.
- Roy McBride: Here we go again. Fighting for resources. What the hell am I doing here?
Atom User Reviews
I feel like the general public is not going to like this film because it is thought provoking. It says a lot about the industry that it is out at the same time as a movie about gangster strippers and that's getting the buzz. In any case, this movie is visually amazing. It is smart and doesn't pander to the lowest common denominator. If you're a space buff it will be hard to find many things wrong with the film even though they take liberties with some of the physics. If you liked Gravity or Interstellar, you'll like this movie. Go see it.
Visually beautiful but the plot is just an astronaut with daddy issues, ehhh
For the bulk of its two-hour-and-two-minute running time, I watched in a state of hypnotized delight.
While Gray may have told basically this same story before, Ad Astra’s cosmic setting makes it even more poignant, because it puts into such sharp relief how small each of us is against the vastness of space, and how our time in that space is the most finite blip possible when compared with the totality of cosmic history.
Though principally a meditative experience, Ad Astra also makes room for some superb suspense sequences, resulting in a thought-provoking film with life-or-death stakes.
