    I’d have to disagree with this, I feel as though it could have the same Sci-fi epic appeal as Blade Runner 2049

    Umm, Blade Runner 2049 was definitely a commercial movie, it had a budget over 150 million.

    I never said Blade Runner 2049 wasn’t made to be a commercial movie, the connotation you had made it seem as though it was ONLY a commercial fare, such as a Marvel film. BR2049 was meticulously crafted and had all of the aspects creating a masterful film, as well as the potential of a commercial gain. I’m saying Gray is doing something similar with Ad Astra, and that he’s taking his time so it can be as good a movie as it can. In regards to the Oscars, it definitely should be considered more than “just a commercial movie”

    Nope, I specifically mentioned in my comments that it looked MORE like a commercial fare, not only, and I said it would still do well in the tech categories.

    Okay,  I see. I was just trying to say that the mere fact that Gray moved the release date back is showing it’s obviously more than just a commercial fare

    Fantastic trailer!! I can definitely see Oscar nominations for at the very least, cinematography and visual effects. Hopefully it’s great on all aspects, because it’s time James Gray had an Oscar contender on his hands. The Lost City Of Z and The Immigrant were both shamefully ignored by the Academy.

    Lol, Nolan wishes he had even a tenth of Gray’s talent. And if he does, he’s certainly never put it out into the universe.

    This is kind of stupid but I think it will be good because every year since 2013 there’s a film about space or in space that’s really great and among the year’s best (Gravity, Interstellar, The Martian, Arrival, Blade Runner 2049, First Man). I think the trend will continue with Ad Astra.

    James Gray, the film’s director.

    The trailer wasn’t amazing, but I just have too much faith in Gray’s talent (I second @fairweatheraffair in her comparison with Nolan’s) to even be the slightest worried about the film.

    I saw this last night and was pretty impressed. They kind of don’t make movies like this anymore with an impressive visual flair and production value, but also very risky with the storytelling in showing what is ultimately a pretty straight forward story with some unexpected twists. At the end of the day, the plot is a bit predictable but the movie is captivating nonetheless. The middle stretch of the film is by far the strongest part of the film. Brad Pitt is great here, as expected, and it is a very internal performance that just grows and grows throughout the film. Tommy Lee Jones also makes the absolute most of his limited screentime. It is a visually stunning film and the technical achievements are really great. I would not mind to see this film contend during awards season, and I assume it’ll be mostly relegated to technical categories, though some above-the-line recognition would absolutely be warranted.

    This premise reminds me of Clifford Simak’s novel CITY. If the film is even marginally close, I’ll be happy.
    My favorite genre this is. Fingers crossed it’s a great one.
