The 10 Movies We’re Most Excited About This Fall

Ad Astra

Dir. by James Gray (Sept. 20)

Pitt is an astronaut on a secret mission to find his long-lost father (Tommy Lee Jones) in the outer reaches of the solar system.

Who knows what this is about, beyond the two fine actors and the setting — a lighthouse in the 1890s? But who cares? Eggers’ atmospherics will carry the day. Also, we’ll admit it. We’re suckers for lighthouse movies. The Light Between Oceans, starring Michael Fassbender and
