First Interstellar Trailer Leaks Onto The Web

interlogo 670x248 First Interstellar Trailer Leaks Onto The Web

UPDATE: The official trailer has now been made available and is embedded at the bottom of this post.

A leaked trailer for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Interstellar was posted on Reddit today. Debuting in theatres last night in front of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, those who haven’t had a chance to catch Peter Jackson’s return to Middle-earth yet can now watch the Interstellar trailer from the comfort of their own home.

Oozing with Nolan’s trademark directorial style, this is very much a teaser and as expected, it doesn’t dive too far into plot details nor does it show much footage from the film. The whole thing is narrated by lead Matthew McConaughey as themes of hope, and how that ties into America’s cultural identity relative to space exploration, shine through. That’s my stab at it, anyways, but that’s pretty much just conjecture. One Reddit user named TheAbbotHawkings sums it up pretty well:

Interesting…before watching the trailer I had no idea what this movie was about.

Now that I’ve watched the trailer, I have no idea what this movie is about.

Like with all great leaks, this one seems to be recorded by a toaster and is full of crowd murmuring. Here’s to hoping that we can get a better look at the trailer shortly, along with some more explicit plot details. For now though, we’ll take what we can get and if you’re fine with the low quality, then you can check out the trailer below.

While we still don’t know very much about Interstellar just yet, the idea of Christopher Nolan taking on space exploration sounds pretty great to me. I admittedly wasn’t a huge fan of The Dark Knight Rises, but I’m confident that Nolan is going to weave his unique voice and tedious craftsmanship into this film. Space exploration is a really important theme these days too. I think we’ve collectively lost a lot of our belief in the power and importance of it and the fact that NASA cut funding a while back definitely hasn’t helped things either. So needless to say, I’m very much behind the idea of Interstellar.

Then again, I’m probably reading way too much into everything. Christopher Nolan + space =  good things. That’s probably all that needs to be said.

Anyways, without further ado, check out the first trailer for Interstellar below and then feel free to head to the comments to let us know what you think of it.

    Wow! First to see :)

    All I can say it’s going to be much more interesting that Gravity.

    Reveals more than the “Man of Steel” teaser trailer, but this is it ? Really ?
    I would have have loved to see the whole movie instead.

    Hopefully it doesn’t descend into global warming nonsense. I think Al Gore selling his TV channel to Middle East oil barons for $200 million once and for all proved what a scam gloBULL warming really is.

    C’mon, Nolan, keep it apolitical.

    • digi_matrix

      There’s no such thing as apolitical. There’s always a position, an opinion, a bias, an agenda. If you’re a living human being who has something subjective to say, there will be politics. Or else, you might as well be a robot just plainly spurting out facts. Now that’s “apolitical”.

      Leave it to a shill for an oil company to phonily wrap himself in the flag while attacking a trailer that praises the American spirit.

  • gooched

    It’s pretty clear cut what he’s talking about, you got it right on the money. Hope, and how as nations and a planet, we have always moved forward and further out towards the stars and how we’ve seemed to have abandoned it, and forgotten that progression and that our hope and salvation lies there.

  • Dominic Cobb

    The original script by his brother is floating around on the IMDB forums. Quite interesting, but will be changed for the big screen.

    awesome trailer. Too bad it doesn’t fill up the imax screen

  • whygotherehuh .

    I love the music so much! Reminds me of the Thin Red Line score (my favorite Hans score) There is something about Christopher Nolan that brings out the best in Hans Zimmer’s music. All of the films they have done together have exceptionally memorable scores. Although I’m only assuming this is the first tid bit from his score, if it is an existing song please tell me what it is!

  • Sammy

    Cool! Where’s Hathaway and Chastain?

  • Nolanite

    What a load of crap. If an another director than Nolan had showed this shit no one would have cared. Very underwhelming. Look at the godzilla teaser. They didn´t show a lot of the monster but it was still an awesome teaser.

    • Alan David

      godzilla comes out in less than half a year, Interstellar comes out in one year. Do you see the difference chump?

      • Nolanite

        Nolan is great when it comes to not spoiling his own movies, and he could have shown cool footage without doing so even this early. Take the awesome teaser for the first hobbit which was released a year before it hit cinemas as an example.

    that Matthew McConaughey voice over.. ! super..
