New INTERSTELLAR Trailer Opens Up the Film’s More Cosmic Elements

     July 30, 2014


Paramount Pictures has released a third Interstellar trailer for director Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi drama.  The film stars Matthew McConaughey and 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.”  I am so incredibly looking forward to this film and love how this new trailer expands upon the second one from a few months ago.  You really get a sense of the film’s scope and cosmic elements.  I’m really hoping this film sticks the landing like Inception did for me, when Nolan is really inspired in his work (unlike TDKR), it’s really something to behold.

Hit the jump to watch the new Interstellar trailer.  The film also stars Anne HathawayJessica ChastainCasey AffleckMichael Caine, David OyelowoWes BentleyJohn LithgowEllen BurstynTopher GraceDavid GyasiMackenzie FoyBill IrwinTimothée Chalamet, and Matt Damon.  Interstellar opens November 7th.

This is apparently the clip that was shown at SDCC.  I love how this movie seems optimistic about a life for the human race outside of Earth, seeing as we’re not likely going to be able to live here in the centuries to come.  You can read our panel recap here.

    You know what would be really groundbreaking for Nolan? If somebody cracked a smile in one of his movies. And no, the Joker doesn’t count.

    • TheBigDirection

      @ 1:52 Matt and his kid are smiling and laughing. So there….

      • Cody McGowan

        They are just frowning in a gravity-free environment.

    • axalon

      I think this is the only gripe I really have about Nolan. His movies are beautiful, with well thought out, and sometimes mind-blowing concepts.

      But none of his movies have any degree of humor in them. Nothing. As if the characters should are never allowed to experience any sort of levity whatsoever.

      • GrimReaper07

        Alfred and Lucious Fox are pretty funny in the Batman films.

      • axalon

        Alfred and Lucious have funny lines but there are rarely any scenes with levity.

      • Spanky


        Just make sure to put some gas in the rolls when your done

      • lee

        That’s totally not my issue with his films. I think there’s great humor, like what GrimReaper07 pointed out.

        My problem is that his films feel cold. Characters sufficiently portray the proper emotions but I’m never as moved as I feel I should be. The heart of Inception was the love story and I didn’t buy it for a second. Or care. Same with Dent’s (and Bruce’s) angst over losing Rachel.

        All filmmakers have their flaws but I don’t know if this is a flaw or a preference thing. But hey, maybe this father/daughter dynamic will do it for me. If not, I’d be curious to see him portray a convincing romance.

    • Kryptonian Knight

      Maybe he’ll do a comedy called Pimp Slap Cody McGowan.
      Lots of smiles on that one for sure.

    • JudgeMethos

      Harvey Dent smiled before he lost RACHEL!!!!

    • Chris

      Nolan can only do overly dramatic and try hard. This trailer is almost choking on it’s pretentiousness.

    • Colonel_Neville_Wraithchild

      I remember Bruce smiling a lot when around lucius and Alfred… And don’t forget TDKR’s. Ending.

      • Cody McGowan

        I think we’d all like to forget TDKR’s ending…

    I got chills watching this. Very excited. This looks like a good space/human/existential exploration film.


    wow. that looks truly magnificent. chills down my spine right now

  • Tom

    Wow looks impressive. I hope people who didn’t like the previous trailer, now they will be satisfied.

    • Mezmero

      Not really just a lot of talk but I guess Nolan was going for that.

      • agent777

        I fucking hate it when there is talking in a movie.

    Looks incredible…got chills

    can you guys put this on youtube or something? for some reason the site’s video player doesn’t work on my computer


      why would collider be responsible for putting it on youtube? warner bros should have it up by the end of the day, be patient

      • bidi

        they’ve mentioned time and time again that they would prefer to use the youtube embed. and if they’re embedding it with their own video player then why not just put it to youtube? i can’t watch any of the interviews anymore either, which is something i used to enjoy. i didn’t think i was asking too much by making a simple request but i guess not. sorry nick hart. it won’t happen again. sheesh

      • autopilot

        It’s not their own video player, it’s the one provided to embed it with HTML. It’s the same at every other movie site/blog.

      • Sean Chandler

        Whatever the excuse, it’s not good and it doesn’t work properly.

      • NICK НΛRT

        its not an excuse… its the only one available right now.. you guys are idiots

      • Sean Chandler

        What point are you trying to make?

        Videos embedded using YouTube are highly compatible.
        Videos embedded using Vimeo are highly compatible.
        Videos embedded using Colliders widget have issues.

        That is a fact. It’s a valid complaint. We’re not being squeaky wheels. We’re not being unreasonable. We’re not idiots. It’s just a bad way to embed videos.

        I understand they can’t control where a studio posts a video. Fair enough. But they use a buggy embed application for their interviews. They could use YouTube. They choose not to for whatever reasons they have. Therefore it’s fair to raise the criticism that they use a faulty embedding application.

        What I want to know is, why you’re defending a bad piece of software to such an extent that you just called me an idiot?

  • Batman

    yep, i just pooped my pants.

  • DNAsplitter

    Looks great. Not sure why TDKR gets the fanboy hate that it does – it was still a good movie. Yes Bane turned into a weaker villian than originally presented but outside of that it was still well executed and came full circle w BB.
    Excited for this film as McConaghey has been on a roll recently w his films.

    • yrulaughing418

      I enjoyed TDKR, but people hate on it because of things like:

      -thugs near the edge of the screen falling down for no reason
      -mercs fire machine guns into the mass of cops and only 2 or 3 of them die
      -did Bruce teleport back into Gotham?
      -”I saw you one time and you were confident and successful, therefore you’re Batman”
      -”I’m a big guy for you”

      • Mezmero

        True even if the tanks shot blanks the automatics are sure to hit more than one cop.

      • DNAsplitter

        I agree w most of what you say except the part w Bruce Wayne teleporting back into Gotham. The guy was sneaking around Gotham for years as Batman so sneaking back into it 8 years later shouldn’t be a big deal and it’s why I believe Nolan chose not to film that scene as he assumed his audience would remember that.

    • agent777

      Though consider the quantum leap from Bane in Batman and Robin to Bane in TDKR. Persoanlly I thought he was a strong baddie. I think you’d need a trilogy to properly do Bane’s comic story.

    • Gerry Rock

      I really liked TDKR, some moments were dumb but really entertaining… back to topic… this trailer is great, shows not to much and that keeps me interested, it’s how trailers should be. Cannot wait for this film

  • enderandrew

    This trailer is like the polar opposite of his Inception trailer with its loud “BRRRRRRRAAAAAWWWWRWRRRMRMRMMRMRMMMMM” and this repeatedly going silent.

  • milo

    Debate over whether the trailer music is by Zimmer in 3..2..1..

    • enderandrew

      People write scores for a movie as one of the very last steps, often when they have a rough idea of the length of the movie and certain scenes. Trailers almost always have temp music pulled from other sources.

    • Joseph M

      It’s chords rather than a hook melody, so I say Zimmer!

  • Christian

    I’m holding out hope that there are surprise aliens in this one.

    • Lex Walker

      That species would get really annoying after awhile.

      “Hey, where’s Gazorpazorp?”
      “I dunno, he was just here a second ago.”
      **Gazorpazorp pops out from behind a tree**
      “HERE I AM!!”
      “Goddamn surprise aliens. How much time do we waste just waiting for you to reappear? Screw this.”
      “Let’s kill them all.”
      **All surprise aliens are killed**

  • Joseph M

    Take Humanity into space? Shouldn’t we try and sort out the mess we’ve made of this world, first, starting with ourselves? Einstein nailed it: ‘our technology has surpassed our Humanity.’

    • Spanky

      Pssst.. it’s called a movie, aka fiction

      Side q – what should we do if we kill all resources on this planet?

      • Joseph M

        Yeah, I get that. It’s Nolan and people saying what a great idea it is that worry me. As for resources, see my comment. We need to look at ourselves and our errors before it’s too late. If I was an alien overlord, I’d keep a quarantine on this planet ’til we sort our shit out.
        Hey, maybe that’s the ending of Interstellar! :)

      • Grayden

        They covered that in the first trailer. Engineers, scientists, and physicists couldn’t come up with any solutions.

        It’s a science fiction story. The story posits a situation that exists in that literary world and how we, as humans, deal with it as a social commentary on the real world in present times. This film’s premise is that we have farmed our planet to the point where we’re running out of food, and no amount of genetic engineering or biological hijinks is going to save us. That’s just the vehicle.

        The true core of the film will be the journey of those chosen to save our world by finding another; an exercise in understanding the human condition. We may get some other subtle parallels to the nature of our society, and greater civilization, when faced with our own extinction as well. Nolan thinks deeper, and sometimes bigger, than A LOT of directors when it comes to his original films.

      • Joseph M

        You make a good point, but dealing with flaws in the Human condition that cause us to destroy ourselves will not – I hope – be the job of engineers, scientists and physicists. As for thinking deeper than other filmmakers, compared to his peers in the mega budget superhero/fantasy genre, yes, definitely one of the more intellectual directors. Not so much when compared to the lower budget, independent directors who stay away from comic book characters and sci fi etc.

  • suave

    WOW :)))

    “when Nolan is really inspired in his work (unlike TDKR)”


    • Spanky

      Oh you got him!!

      You go girl!!

  • Elf

    I liked the other trailers, but this ones kinda corny.

  • DeathoftheEndless7


  • Cristy0010

    I don’t know if it’s just me, but the scenes between father-daughter really affected me emotionally. Interstellar is my most anticipated film of the year and the trailer increased my expectations.

    • Ruprect

      It’s not just you. The thought of having that choice to make … save humanity, including my children obviously, but potentially never see them again … that got to me too.

      • Lex Walker

        It’s like Sophie’s choice. In fact, thematically it’s exactly like Sophie’s Choice. In both instances he’s choosing between his child and his child, only it’s whether he gets to watch her grow up or gets to know she has a future.

        “Interstellar: Sophie’s Choice – Now with 100% more space!”

      • Ruprect

        I guess that would make Global Climate Change ….. NAZIS!!!!!

    All the scenes in space, especially that final shot, look so beautiful and mind-blowing to me. I love ‘em. Can’t wait to see it on IMAX. Especially considering Nolan’s the King of IMAX.

  • Andy

    Do not go gentle into that good night,
    Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
    Michael Cain reciting Dylan Thomas just somehow put this film even further up my excited list, even though it was already number 1.

  • tommy_walker

    Old style dirt farm with ancient tractor. Spaceships with FTL capabilities. Yeah, nothing conflicting in these images. I’m not very excited about this movie. It feels like it’s going to be another “Contact.”

    • scheebles

      They’re conflicting on purpose. Setting up how alien it would be for him to go from farm to space.

      Like the ending of Gravity. Having her in an uninhabited, primal location to juxtapose the oddity of space.

  • Boogaloo

    I saw a key note speech by Chris Hadfield a few months ago where he played some footage of his spaceship launch with some very impressive surround sound. The scene was so powerful that everyone in the audience had goosebumps and it stirred up a lot of emotions. I really hope Nolan can capture the same feeling when this movie is finally released, the launch scene alone is going to be a make or break for me.

  • Colin Christian

    I have never been more excited to see a movie,ever.

    • Lex Walker

      What about your first child’s ultrasound?

  • utazdevl

    OK, I’ll be the one to say it.

    2:10, they totally ripped off Kurt Russell and Steven Seagal from Executive Decision.

    • rodriguez256

      How do you know that for sure? We would have to see the next seen after that to see if it’s in the same context. Either way it wouldn’t be ripping it off, all artist borrow pieces from others. I’d be curious to know of a movie that didn’t do this is in some form.

      • utazdevl

        I am not saying the film will rip off Executive Decision, but the trailer certainly does. It is almost word for word the same dialogue.

  • Georce Johnson

    OMG, now THIS is the trailer I’ve been waiting for! I’m officially on board, and I’m not even Nolan fan.

  • grapes9h5

    Each trailer gets it better and better!!

    I know the Nolan Haters gripe and want more/less but this looks like something I will thoroughly enjoy. In recent years I have found myself wanting to go to the movies less and less. Perhaps its do to me getting older (30+), having a new son (20 months) or something different all together. Either way, I eagerly await seeing this on the big screen.


    This is where NOLAN belongs! He should leave superhero movies alone altogether & focus on everything else! This film looks nothing short of amazing! My breath was just taken away by the acting, visuals, cinematography, sound, etc.

  • agent777

    My one problem with Nolan is that I have this one really weird and specific gripe about him that justifies why I have a gripe with Nolan in general.

  • poppincherry

    Nolan can suck me off. This over the top, common man fom the goddamn corn fields, diabetic sweetness BS can go straight to hell.
    The country that became America was breathtakingly beautiful. No gangbangers, Dick Cheney, Sarah Paln, hospitals or penitentiaries. No one quadrillion in derivative debt or radiation leaks from nuke plants or so called terrorist trying to blow shit up.. It was the world these bitches in this movie are trying to find.
    The biggest and most shocking plot hole here is that the do-gooders on that spaceship are riding the dick of corporate America. Who else is sponsoring this? These are the same fucking pilgrims that were sponsored by the crown back in the day. Lol.
    This movie looks to be a bigger joke than TDKR. And for god’s sake, HATHAWAY!?
