You can't keep a good man down and while Brad Pitt has had a rough coupla years, the original A-lister is back in action.

Already the subject of buzz thanks to Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Pitt is delivering more fire in the recently released trailer for intergalactic space drama, Ad Astra.

Directed by James Gray, Ad Astra sees Pitt play heroic astronaut, Roy McBride, who must go on a dangerous mission to track down his lost father, Clifford, who went missing in space.

But the minute our boy Roy rocks up in outer space, things start to go disastrously wrong. He accidentally stumbles on a secret in the solar system that could spell the end of life on Earth, as we know it. Sign us up.

Tommy Lee Jones stars alongside Pitt as Roy McBride’s father, while Ruth Negga and Donald Sutherland round out the cast. Meanwhile, Liv Tyler last seen playing a distraught space widow in Armageddon, is back at her weepy best, playing Pitt's wife.  

Ad Astra hits Australian theatres on September 19.
