Brad Pitt Comes in for a Landing While Filming ‘Ad Astra’

Brad Pitt was bravely gliding through space on an interstellar mission into the great unknown … even though it looked like he was just hanging off the side of the freeway.

Pitt was in Los Angeles Thursday shooting scenes for his new flick, “Ad Astra,” a sci-fi thriller which follows Pitt’s character as he embarks on a one-way mission to the planet Neptune in search of alien life.

Pitt was in full astronaut getup with an “Advanced Extrasolar Relay Center” patch on.  He was attached to a parachute and wires that whipped him back and forth during what should be a pretty cool action sequence.  Also worth noting, Pitt’s doing his own stunt.

Tom Cruise, eat your heart out.
