Christopher Nolan fans rejoice, the trailer for his new Sci-Fi thriller Interstellar has landed.
Christopher and Jonathan Nolan’s screenplay based on the works of Physicist Kip Thorne is about a future where “governments and economies across the globe have collapsed, food is scarce, NASA is no more, and the 20th Century is to blame. A mysterious rip in spacetime opens and it’s up to whatever is left of NASA to explore and offer up hope for mankind.” The official synopsis doesn’t offer too many details on Nolan’s first film since The Dark Knight Rises, and the teaser trailer continues to give us a vague yet interesting look at Interstellar.
The first minute of so of the trailer is montage of the early era of American spaceflight culminating with the space shuttle landing and narrator Matthew McConaughey leaving his rural home, which then segues to a man and boy holding hands in a cornfield as a rocket streaks up into the sky. All in all a pretty bare bones trailer, but considering that they only started shooting a few months ago it does enough to build the anticipation. The trailer ends letting us all know that the movie is still a year away, and we will have to wait to see more as this film develops.
Warner Bros. and Paramount teamed up to make the film and helped bring an impressive cast to the table with Matthew McConaughey, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Ellen Burstyn, Wes Bentley, Jessica Chastain, Mackenzie Foy, Bill Irwin, David Oyelowo and John Lithgow featured. And of course, it just wouldn’t be a Nolan film without his eye for detail, which required him to shoot some of the film using an IMAX camera strapped to a learjet.
Interstellar is scheduled to hit theaters in November 2014.
