A new trailer for director Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated sci-fi drama Interstellar will be attached to showings of Godzilla next weekend, but Paramount has decided to tease fans a little early by releasing the first Interstellar poster online today. The story revolves around a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole “to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.” This poster teases the premise quite efficiently, and it also reveals the film’s tantalizing tagline: “Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.” We can surmise from the previous trailer and this poster that the fate of human existence appears to be on the line, and I’m curious to see just how much of the film will be unveiled in the new trailer. I know it’ll never happen, but I’d be thrilled if Paramount kept all of the space/spaceship-set scenes out of the marketing, allowing us all to go in completely cold.
Hit the jump to check out a high-resolution version of the Interstellar poster. The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, David Oyelowo, Wes Bentley, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace, David Gyasi, Mackenzie Foy, Bill Irwin, Timothée Chalamet, and Matt Damon. Interstellar opens in traditional theaters and IMAX on November 7th.
