Unless something goes wrong, this is the year of Brad Pitt. The new trailer for James Gray’s “Ad Astra” has dropped and it’s a winner. The space opera will be here in a few weeks, starting probably with the Venice Film Festival and maybe Toronto (fingers crossed). The film launches in late September. Look at this cast: Liv Tyler, Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Donald Sutherland.
Before that we get “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” the hotly anticipated Quentin Tarantino movie, next Friday! Brad in a comedy, Brad in a drama. Top notch films. We could be talking about two Oscar nominations. And wouldn’t that be swell?
