Watch: New Trailer For Christopher Nolan's ‘Interstellar’ Delivers More Majestic Wonder & Awe

“Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.” That’s the tagline for Warner Bros.’/Paramount’s upcoming fall blockbuster, Christopher Nolan‘s “Interstellar.” Those words could be modified for the fans-travaganza in San Diego last weekend: “Christopher Nolan was born on Earth. He was never meant to go to Comic-Con.” The notoriously secretive filmmaker had never been to the preeminent sci-fi and fantasy convention in his entire career, despite having made his ‘Batman‘ trilogy, a series made for the Comic-Con crowd. Yet Paramount Pictures took over Hall H on Thursday, and quite unexpectedly, Nolan was in attendance with his “Interstellar” lead Matthew McConaughey (read our report here). Of course, he unveiled the latest trailer at the Con, which has now hit the Internet today.

The clip peels back a lot of layers, unveiling a lot of footage we haven’t seen before of lead actors McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain. But the mystery within still remains and will probably stay under wraps well until the fall. Nolan seems to be channeling  a Kubrick-ian variety of majestic grandeur: Evidently, the movie concerns a group of explorers who employ a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel. Why? Because Earth appears to be dying.

“Interstellar” also co-stars Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, Topher Grace, David Oyelowo, Wes Bentley and even Matt Damon in a small role. There had been rumors that the film could be screnned during the fall film festival circuit, but given that Toronto, NYFF and Venice have already unveiled their main slates, it’s a near certainty it won’t turn up now. Co-written by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan (and once originally pegged to be a Steven Spielberg project), “Interstellar” opens in theaters on November 6.

I hope the actual movie is more interesting than the boring trailer.


I cant wait too see this film nolan is a genius if this film is better than inception could possibly be the greatest film ever.And for daniels comment wtf who do u expect too see be an astronaught jason strathum cause he looks like he could be one get a grip hes went for people who can actually act .


Very exciting trailer, sleek cinematography and the shots of outer space look great! The 'love conquers all' thing is probably played up more in this trailer, and more overtly, than it will in the feature (that's my guess). Can't wait for this one, the scope seems so large I hope that the runtime reflect that.. i'd hate to rush through this story.


The emotional appeal could make this movie popular to a large general audience beyond the geek set. Looks like Nolan's most mature film.


Yeah. Just not getting it. Sense of story, a thread, anything. Just… images.




Seems extremely ambitious. Let's hope Nolan and the cast were able to pull it off.


Matt Damon's role in this is a real wild card to me. Very curious about that.


Wasn't interested before, but THAT was cool. Love the glimpse of alien worlds, a lot of the lines are both real and deep, and the sudden switch from sound to silence as the space ship enters space is, simply, great.


Nope. You lost me.

Why, do directors so cowardly latch onto the same actors for subsequent films, when they are the wrong faces for the roles played, as they were the time before?

Michael Caine is not a professor. Hathaway is not an astronaut. Supsension of disbelief is in disbelief.


looks good but kinda heavy handed with the love conquers all bullshit. it doesn't, rusty. that's why you're on a rocketship to another galaxy with catwoman.


Holy crap! This just keeps looking better and better. I got chills watching.


It looks like Nolan actually made a movie with a genuine story and emotion, not just plot. I'm impressed.
