Brad Pitt is leaving gravity behind for his turn as a space cowboy in “Ad Astra.” This interstellar thriller stars Pitt as a near-future astronaut. He is also a legacy space traveler, as his father was part of an expedition that failed near Neptune 30 years earlier. But strong anti-matter pulses are now disrupting things in the solar system. And the powers that be want Pitt to find out if his missing father has anything to do with it. “Ad Astra” is rated PG-13.
