WATCH: First Trailer for Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar' Starring Matthew McConaughey

The first teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming and highly anticipated “Interstellar” has landed. The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Casey Affleck, Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway.

Slated for a 2014 release, this ambitious sci-fi centers on 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.

I'm not a particular fan of Nolan's, but I think the teaser works not because it's an effective teaser because of the public's general faith in Nolan's ability to deliver. It definitely sets up for some big reveal in the next trailer and I think will gets fans excited. All I'll say is if Nolan produces a box office hit on the order of "Inception" again, he will basically have a completely blank check to do whatever he wants.

A side note though, Nolan has mentioned his affections for Terrence Malick previously, and I think it's interesting that this teaser seems very influenced by Malick. The rhythmic timing and delivery of McConaughey's narration seems very Malick-esque and the crop-burning and the naturalistically-lit close-ups of gently rustling corn seem right out of "Days of Heaven." Most people have thought of "Interstellar" as Nolan's "2001," maybe it will be more like a Malick film. Nolan has spoke of Malick's influence on him, though I've seen little evidence of that to date, maybe this time it will come through.


This is such a weak BS trailer. 90% stock footage and doesn't even suggest anything magical. I know this because it was the line trailer for the HOBBIT IMAX 3D screening and produced shrugs and guffaws. A trailer this isn't; it's one thing to have too much information but to have two minutes of NO PLOT is just as weak. Couldn't Nolan and co produce a visually striking teaser instead of this retrofitted Americana?
