Get my pies

This looks pretty interesting, and I'm trying to figure out if it's set in our present or slightly in the future or is some sort of retro/future thing because some of it looks like it's set in the present, some of it in the 1960's rocket heyday and some in the future with some unfamiliar looking green uniforms? US Space Force?

What do you all think?

Looks entertaining at any rate. Near (25-40yrs) future is my guess. Good to see Liv Tyler is still alive at least... Wink

Is that a space elevator in the trailer?

So it opens September 20th.

Looks like it may actually be pretty good! Not a lot of details about WHEN it’s set but I’m guessing about 50 years in the future. Major McBride (Brad Pitt) wears a uniform with US Army nametape and the green dress uniforms in the first trailer were vaguely Army Class-A-ish. He’s also wearing US Army Astronaut wings in one of the trailers.

Apparently we have a pretty large, established Moon Base in the future, complete with Moon Pirates! Eek

Looks like a distance future movie with some Apocalypse Now themes (rouge former leader, thought dead, on his own, etc).

Might be worth the watch.

"Charlie don't EVA!"

Now that I got that out of my system, this looks like a pretty expensive cast so maybe it won't suck.

I’m interested in the movie, but have to say the moon buggy shootout looks stupid and too heavily CGI’d.

With the way movie studios are putting out trailers and, and how they obscure the plot, this could very well be a astronaut discovering his father is having an affair out in space.
Looks interesting though..

Looks worth the look! Great cast of characters. I'm needing some new SF in my life. This life is getting too interesting at times of late.
