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

     May 6, 2014


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.
