    I’m eagerly waiting for the trailer for this supposedly epic space adventure film from James Gray. Curious to see how other people think this will stack up, especially in the technical categories, for this year’s Oscars. Will it pull a “Silence” from a couple years ago and suffer from the early January release curse? OR will this be in its favor?

    I really think it will have huge chances in the sound categories, as well as visual effects. But I’m not so sure about music (Even though its score is being helmed by Thomas Newman) because of its late release. Will it even be shown to voters early enough for Newman to make the shortlist now releasing on December 17? Also, it seems as though this year’s cinematography category is pretty tightly packed, it doesn’t seem like there’s room for a lot of other films, however Ad Astra’s camera is helmed by Hoyte van Hoytema, someone who’s been creating beautiful films for years now, only just recently getting a nomination for Dunkirk. Is there room for him? And what about best picture? This could potentially have a Dunkirk-like impact. I guess we will just have to wait for a trailer to find out

    I think they might push it to next year.

    20th Century Fox doesn’t have it on their 2018 FYC page, so I’m assuming it’s being pushed to 2019.

    Interesting, I feel like 20th Century could still change that.

    I know this link is kind of old but their initial plan was to have a limited 2018 release to make it eligible, I’m still kind of hoping it is. January film releases never have a chance at the Academy Awards

    I’ve been saying since day one this was going to happen.

    Guess this is more commercial fare than an Oscar contender (which I think is what most of us suspected). It should still do well in some below the line categories.
