We’ve already seen an all too brief teaser for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, and now it looks like we’re going to get a closer look at the highly-anticipated film next week. The Washington Post is reporting that the full-length trailer will debut alongside Godzilla, which hits theatres on May 16th. Apparently, a couple people have already seen the footage and according to them, this is what it will show:
“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.”
It doesn’t sound like much, but I’m guessing that the trailer won’t be revealing a whole lot. Nolan is notorious for being secretive with his films, and until we’re much closer to the November release date, it’s not likely that we’re going to see anything substantial. Still, what we’ll be getting next week will no doubt be juicier than the footage in the teaser, and for a film this high-profile, I’ll take what I can get.
Along with the trailer description, we also got a new poster for Intersellar today. It’s pretty minimalist, but does display the cryptic tagline, “Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.” We’re not sure what that could mean, but it’s definitely piqued our curiosity.
From what we know so far, Interstellar will follow the adventures of “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.”
Sure, that’s a bit vague, but the film is shaping up to be a truly mind-bending thriller, much in the vein of Inception, only more cerebral and heavier on the sci-fi elements. Nolan hasn’t let us down before, and if this upcoming film can be even half as good as some of his previous work, then we’re in for a real treat.
Interstellar arrives on November 7th, 2014 and stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck, David Gyasi, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Timothée Chalamet, Topher Grace, David Oyelowo Ellen Burstyn, Michael Caine and Matt Damon. I don’t know about you, but I, for one, cannot wait.
