Paramount Pictures has released a new 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.” Even though I know most of the visual effects are still in development, I’m surprised at how much focus was on the emotional side of the film. Like production designer Nathan Crawley said, this is really a father-daughter story, and I like the emphasis on the emotion. But there’s also a darkness in here that the characters aren’t just leaving Earth for the sake of exploration; they’re leaving Earth because it’s a lost cause.
Hit the jump to watch the new Interstellar trailer. The film also stars 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 November 7th.
