Christopher Nolan's Interstellar Delivers Epic First Trailer
"We're not meant to save the world. We're meant to leave it."
That's the line that sticks out the most for me regarding our latest, most thorough peek at Interstellar, Christopher Nolan's epic space drama about... well shoot, they've been coy, haven't they? Nolan is no J.J. Abrams, but the concept for this picture has been buried in secrecy. Thanks to this Interstellar trailer, some of it has come to light. But there's still plenty they're hiding. Oh Christopher Nolan, you rogue you!
Matthew McConaughey appears here as Cooper, the troubled farmer who has to deal with shrinking crops. The film posits that the greatest threat we'll face in the future is diminished food supplies, and as Michael Caine intones, "We must confront the reality that nothing in this solar system can help us."
They also make a big show of teaching Cooper about Murphy's Law. Surely Charles Bronson would like to have a word with you about that!
The Interstellar trailer ends with McConaughey taking off into space, robbing us of a peek of the film's considerable big-budget sequences, not to mention a few key cast members. And McConaughey's bold proclamation that, "I'm coming back" suggests that he's true to his word, and that perhaps some of the high profile cast members in this film are playing slightly older versions of those whom we've already seen. Or alternate dimension versions?
We think we might know what this all means. Head to the next page for Interstellar trailer screenshot evidence...
