Ad Astra, a science fiction thriller directed by James Gray, projects far into the future of space exploration. The story deals with a man, Roy Mcbride (Brad Pitt), who has to go on a mission to stop his father, Clifford Mcbride (Tommy Lee Jones) from causing catastrophic, irreversible damage to the solar system. Clifford had gone on a mission called the Lima Project, the first space mission beyond the solar system in search for extraterrestrial life powered by antimatter. Through the mission, the antimatter compartment was damaged, which caused major power surges throughout the solar system which could potentially destroy all life. Roy is then sent to Mars to plea for his dad to stop.
