TRAILER: Interstellar

The trailer has arrived for Christopher Nolan’s latest film: Interstellar.

There’s not much detail given on the plot – we gather that the Earth is dying, and a select few individuals are being sent into space to achieve “interstellar travel” in hopes of saving humanity.  The group of explorers 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.

The trailer also introduces the concept of Murphy’s Law – “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong”, which McConaughey’s character rewrites as, “whatever can happen, will happen.” (How very Rust Cohle of him) Is this foreshadowing for events in the film?

Fans have been waiting for another Nolan film since the Dark Knight Rises. I expect Nolan mainstays of non-linear narratives, and exquisite cinematography.

The trailer is moving and thoroughly engrossing (thanks in large part to Dario Marianelli’s score from “V for Vendetta”) and refreshingly devoid of plot details. Nolan makes intelligent films for his audience; visually stunning, imaginative and rooted in great performances.

The film stars Academy Award Winner Matthew McConaughey (how many people thought they’d never hear that?!), riding the wave of the McConnaissance into new territory.  Co-starring Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, and Michael Caine.

I’m expecting this to be STELLAR. Interstellar is in theatres November 2014.
