Written by Jonathan and Christopher Nolan, directed by Christopher Nolan, starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Jessica Chastain, Wes Bentley, William Devane, Topher Grace, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn and Mackenzie Foy.
I like the idea of Nolan taking on environmentalism and space, and this feels like one of his most conventional films to date. There’s obviously something else going on here that we’re not seeing. It’s clear this is only covering the first act or part of the film.
We’ve always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. Are we lost on that? Perhaps, we’ve just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we’ve barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.
Here’s the full trailer for Christopher Nolan’s much-awaited Interstellar, which stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, David Oyelwo, Topher Grace and Jessica Chastain. The story revolves around an Earth that is fast approaching food depletion, so scientists come up with a solution to venture into space for alternatives. Interstellar will arrive in US theaters on November 7, 2014.
“We must confront the reality that nothing in our solar system can help us. We’re not meant to save the world. We’re meant to leave it. We must reach far beyond our own lifespans. We must think not as individuals but as species. We must confront the reality of interstellar travel.”
Directed by Chistopher Nolan, written by Christopher Nolan, Jonathan Nolan and Kip Thorne, starring 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.
This would have been an awesome trailer for 'Gravity,’ and while it doesn’t tell us all that much about 'Interstellar’ I’m already concerned about comparisons. Yes, it undeniably builds a sense of purpose and grandeur, and the shot of McConaughey driving away crying is an intriguing, loaded image – but right now this isn’t substantial enough to get a sense of what’s really going on here. This is Christopher Nolan so odds are it will be good, but it’s way too early to call this the next 'Inception’ or anything similar.
