Description for the New Trailer for Christopher Nolan’s INTERSTELLAR; Trailer Will Be Attached to GODZILLA

Because Christopher Nolan is big on secrecy when it comes to his movies (I remember when Inception was described only as “a story that takes place inside the architecture of the mind”), his fans become frenzied at even the slightest hint of what that film could be about.  All we know about his new movie, Interstellar, is that it 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.”  It might also involve corn.  The new trailer provides a bit more information, and while it hasn’t been officially released, it did show in front of Hubble 3D (a great documentary) at the Smithsonian’s Air & Space Museum.

Hit the jump for the Interstellar trailer description and click here to check out the first poster.  The film opens on November 7th and stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Matt Damon, Bill Irwin, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck, David Gyasi, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Timothée Chalamet, Topher Grace, David Oyelowo, Ellen Burstyn, and Michael Caine.

Here’s a brief description of the trailer via the Washington Post:

The trailer unspooled to show Matthew McConaughey driving his truck through corn fields while a lush orchestral score swelled in the background. Later, the fields had caught fire, an ominous dust cloud could be seen looming over a baseball game, and McConaughey (playing a character named Cooper) was reassuring his daughter that he loved her — right before being shot into space in order to save the world.

The film also carries the tagline, “Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here,” a tagline I really like.  I don’t know how I’ll feel about the final movie, but if it’s conceptually going where I think it is—an embrace of humanity’s desire to explore and a criticism of remaining Earthbound—then I’m even more excited to see it.

If you can’t wait to see the trailer and you live in the D.C. area, you can go to the the Lockheed Martin IMAX Theater to check it out.  Also, the Smithsonian is filled with amazing history and priceless artifacts, so maybe go see those as well.  If you don’t live near the Smithsonian but want to see the trailer, it will be attached to Godzilla, which opens next Friday.

    take me Mr. Nolan, my body is ready

    • Your name here

      Is there anything corn can’t do? Food, ethanol, wormholes….

      • Strong Enough

        corn does not have a connection to wormholes

      Thank you. My financial representative will be in contact with you shortly.

  • bidi

    i’m glad this wasn’t a total play by play. i clicked the link for this article because i’m one of those Nolan fanboys who needs any little morsel of information just to make it through my useless existence. but i always regret reading about these things before i see them. so i’m glad i didn’t get anything spoiled, even if it is just a trailer. I WILL NOW PATIENTLY WAIT FOR GODZILLA (which i was already super jacked for)

    • Faptain America

      Right there with you. As if I needed any more motivation to see Godzilla. That movie looks great.

  • the king of comedy

    Even tough The Dark Knight Rises was a major dissapointment I`m really looking forward to this movie. Every major director has a flawed movie every now and then, but I still have faith in the Director who made Memento, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

    • http://rudeassentertainment.tumblr.com/ YouStartedIt

      Only to you. At the box office it was a major success. It’s just you dude. Never mind.

      • the king of comedy

        So were the Transformers, Twilight and Pirates of The Carebean movies, all of them a major success at the Box Office but that doesn`t make them better movies. Truth be told even if The Dark Knight Rises was as bad as Grown Ups 2 it would have made a lot of money, thanks to the succes The Dark Knight. Batman Begins is a much better movie and didn`t make that much money because Nolan was unknown at the moment and didn´t have such a cool villain like the Joker.

      • Christopher Nolan II

        exactly…thats another thing i am sick of. this whole “dark knight rises was dissapointing” WHAT? HOW?? oh i know..becuz it was not SMOTHERED in hype like the 2008 film and did not feature and well known iconic villian like the joker who also then made headlines due to his tragic passing. you plonkers!! with your b.s. nolan ass-worship why cant u just get yer own actual opinions on things and stop being cattle.

    • mattinacan

      i thought Rises was great, not as great as TDK obviously, but compared to the comic book movies we get today it was a freaking masterpiece. I liked Cap’s new movie, but IM3, TASM2, even Thor 2 – complete messes.

      • the king of comedy

        I guess it was alright, it wasn`t as horrible as some people make it out to be but nevertheless it was truly dissapointing, I believe that discussions about plotwholes in that movie have been discussed to death so I won`t talk about them again, but it just lacked the spirit that the first movies had and some plot aspects were truly silly, I just didn`t buy the whole idea of taking the city just to be killed with it later with it, batman showing up just in time, the prisson was kind of lame as well. Some other parts of the movie were amazing such as the fights against bane and the first time Batman returns. Gordon was one of the best aspects in previous movies as wells but he was loussy in this movie.

      • JBug

        Definitely. Check out 99 reasons (http://www.comicbookmovie.com/batman_movies/news/?a=64971). This article does a great job getting at the heart of why TDKR didn’t work.

      • Christian Bale II

        OMG SHUT UUUUUUP “not as good as TDK obviously” obviously to WHO? you band-wagon hopping youtube comments section dwelling internet SLAVE …..stop it, just STOP IT!! ALL OF YOU stop talking like that!!! stop being so ….soo…….social fake. u go where the wind blows…have a true thought

    • Michael N.

      Here we go again…
      It is absolutely obnoxious.
      Always the comment on how The Dark Knight Rises was horrible. WHAT?
      Perhaps to you. By the way “the director” also made The Prestige and Inception.

      • JBug

        TDKR wasn’t horrible, it was just disappointing. Given the expectations were incredibly high after TDK, saying it was a major disappointment doesn’t mean it was horrible. I personally give it a B-/C+. Green Lantern is a D

      • the king of comedy

        yeah precisely what I meant not a bad movie but truly a major dissapointment.

      • BigJimSlade

        No, it was horrible. One of the worst comic movies ever made, as far as I’m concerned. The plot was a mess and the film (like most of Nolan’s stuff) didn’t have an ounce of heart.

        But since it was a Nolan movie it did rely on explosions and sloppy twists/reveals!

        The guy can’t tell a story for the life of him. He does hire a mean cast of actors, editors and cinematographer. I think he’d be a decent director for hire if you’re looking for book adaptations, but to me Nolan is Michael Bay without the ability to tell a cohesive story or create characters with any heart. It’s as if he writes all his movies backwards (“I have this great twist/concept, I just need some stuff to lead up to it”).

        The only thing worse than Nolan’s films is the seeing other movie makers try to push these cold and passionless Hollywood blockbusters that are just as mindless as your every Transformer movie, a Lindeloff-worthy screen plan and several scoops of pretense.

      • nintendo zapper

        Implying Michael Bay actually tells stories and creates characters with heart is simply retarded.

      • Strong Enough

        One of the worst comic movies ever made,

        BWAWAWAWAWA thats funny.

      • JBug

        While I don’t feel the same as you, I have to admit you bring up several valid points and comparisons. I don’t hate on Michael Bay, despite his obvious flaws and I think he has a lot to offer. I think Nolan’s music, cinematography and actors pull me in enough to ignore what you’re referring to as lack of heart.

      • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

        ? “One of the worst comic movies ever made”

        Ghostrider, Ghostrider: Spirit of Vengeance, Superman III, Superman IV, Spider Man 3, TASM, Captain America (1990), The Punisher (1989), The Punisher: War Zone (guilty pleasure b movie), The Punisher w Thomas Jane (still a fun film in the superior Director’s Cut), Howard the Duck, Spawn, The Incredible Hulk, Hulk (way too artsy but a beautiful looking film), Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3 (just shit all over Iron Man’s greatest foe w a pointless Shyamalan twist), The Phantom (sorry Billy Zane), Daredevil (Again same logic applies for the superior Director’s cut), Green Lantern, Fantastic Four, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Batman Forever, and Batman & Robin all seem to think differently. And I’m being generous towards Captain America: First Avenger, Batman (89), Batman Returns, Thor and Thor 2 as I think Rises is better than all of those but others disagree. The Avengers, Superman I & 2, Iron Man, TDK and BB are all superior in my book.

    • JBug

      Same here and The Prestige and Inception!

      • the king of comedy

        I like The Prestige and Inception, altough I believe The Prestige falls apart in the Third act, that cloning machine jut didn`t fit in that movie

    • Tyler

      Dark Knight Rises was awesome!

  • cb

    This dude has never made a bad movie in his life. If he had been behind Transcendance, i would’ve waited all night to see it!

    • the king of comedy

      I agree all of his movies are good but some of them really overated, he`s one of the best directors working today but he`s not Scorsese, Kubrick or Hitchcock either.

      • Ted

        not yet*

      • the king of comedy

        I think he`ll go down as one of the best directors of his generation, but not as one of the greatest of all time, I don`t see him making something as groundbreaking as 2001: a Space Oddysey, or be a pioneer in filmaking techniques as Hitchcock (maybe his greatest contributions to cinema are the use of IMAX cameras and the treatment of comicbook movies), and look at Scorsese, Nolan has never made something as great as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull or Goodfellas (considered Scorsese`s best) not to mention forgotten classics (Mean Streets, The Last Temptation of Christ, Casino, The King of Comedy, etc) and even the movies he is making nowadays wich I consider superior to what Nolan is making.

      • cruzzercruz

        Which ones might you say are overrated?

      • the king of comedy

        Even tough I love The Dark Knight and it`s my favorite comicbook movie, I think that movie is overrated as many people talk about as if it was The Godfather and it started one of the greatest fanboyism towards a director in movie history, you can see what happenned with Rotten Tomatoes where people started to defend a movie they didn`t even watch treatening critics who didn`t like TDKR just because it was the follow up to TDK. I think Batman Begins is underrated since many people didn`t know it existed before The Dark Knight and it`s an amazing Batman Movie. Inception is kind of overrated as well, just because it had a complicated plot doesn`t make the movie better, the overexposure of the plot kind of took away the life of that movie, but still worth to watch. Not sure if TDKR is overrated since that movie has many suporters but also many haters (in my opinion it`s the most dissapointing movie of Nolan`s carreer). Memento is underrated since that movie is arguably the best movie Nolan has made and most people know more about his blockbusters. And finally movies such as The Prestige and Insomnia are kind of overrated since they are alright but not great, and sometimes people claim to love them just because they are directed by Nolan.

      • mbmarquis69

        Speaking as someone who enjoys his movies, but is not a Nolan fanboy, I can readily admit he’s well on his way to becoming part of that league, if he continues making smart, challenging films and avoids phoning it in like he did with TDKR.

      • the king of comedy

        I think he is on his way of becoming one of the best directors of his generation but not one of the greatest of all time among such names, not sure if we have some potential candidates to reach such greatness, even tough there are some good directors working nowadays whose name migh go down in history: Nolan, Darren Aronofsky, Steve McQueen, Dany Boyle, The Coen Brothers, Paul Thomas Anderson, Haneke, David Fincher.

        give him time. he’s only 40 something

      • the king of comedy

        Well by the time Kubrick and Scorsese were Nolan`s age they had already made some of the greatest movies in cinema history, such as 2001: A Space Oddysey, Dr. Strangelove, Raging Bull and Taxi Driver.

      • Strong Enough

        Yes but when they came out were they considered the classics they are now? No. you have to give movies time to breath and if decades later they still stand the test of time then we shall see. The Dark Knight, Inception Memento are all in that catagory. But like i said he’s only 40 and has at least 3 more decades of filming left. I already think he made a masterpiece which is Dark Knight. Movie is perfect and changed cinema. So many movies are influenced by it the way those movies influenced him.

      • ʝoe ßloggs

        I don’t think The Dark knight changed cinema per se.
        It did however challenge the idea of what a comicbook movie should be.
        In this generation, that’s an indelible mark.
        We are already seeing it filtering into films such as CA:TWS, which had a stronger core plot than merely mindless action.

      • ʝoe ßloggs

        Love Nolan’s work. My only fear for him is that he starts being too ‘smart’, thinking his over-intelligence makes for a better picture. Sometimes the simplest concepts can make a profound impact.

      • the king of comedy

        I think Kubrick was one of the brightest directors that ever lived and he knew how to use that intelligence in his movies, by demanding something back from the audience. As you said, being complex or shocking doesn`t make a movie great (even tough those factors are amazing when used correctly), but bringing the vision of the director to the story in a unique, consistent and/or touching way is more important. Some of the best escenes in Nolan`s movies weren`t the action packed sequences or complex dream worlds, but moments like the interrogation scene in TDK or “Swear to me!!” in Batman Begins and “We had our time together” in Inception,

      • ʝoe ßloggs

        Agreed. Those two specific moments you mentioned though, for me, have little to do with intelligence. They resonate more on the emotional scale. Kubrick is a master. Nolan is still learning the ropes, comparatively speaking. I just hope he doesn’t outsmart himself. He has a really fruitful career ahead of him. I for one, really enjoy his work.
