First teaser of Christopher Nolan's upcoming film, with Matthew McConaughey narrating.


Interesting and intriguing...

I hope they continue this trend of trailers that don't give away the entire plot!

It is Christopher Nolan, so I will see it. Matthew McConaughey continues to expand his acting horizon.

Most depressing part of the trailer is when it reminds you that the movie is a year away.

Since Nolan isn't working with his usual cinematographer (Wally Pfister was busy on his directorial debut), I'll be curious to see if it has the look of his previous films.

The trailer doesn't really impress.
From what I can gather from it, some guy leaves his family for the purposes of saving the species from extinction?
Really?

It's got the interesting premise that in the not so distant future the most pressing need is for humans to be able to produce any food at all, rather than more materialistic technology stuff - and engineers have been relegated to insignificance. And only the engineers can save the species from extinction by getting us off this-then barren rock. It's a great sci-fi premise. We'll see how it translates to the screen.

Trailers too many times are the best part of the movie but this trailer doesn't do a whole lot for me so I guess the movie should be quite good. smile.gif

This is related to the fact that most people don't want to have to think during a movie, though.

1) Awesome trailer usually means they can show you everything you need to know: 'Splosions and people yelling while they fire a gun or run from something.

2) Kind of "meh" trailer may mean they can't show you much because there's an actual story that you kind of need to know in order to get the most of it.

Looks like a cross between "Contact" and Star Trek's "First Contact" (without the aliens.)

Being a Christopher Nolan film, I'm hoping for something better than the usual Hollywood releases. I'm just praying this isn't one of those subtle "man is killing the planet/climate change" diatribes. I am somewhat pleased with the musical score. It seems to be a good match with the trailer presentation.

Guess we'll have to wait until November to see if Mr. Nolan has put "stellar" into "Interstellar."

And I'm sure the actual music from Interstellar will deliver as well... I have this feeling this is the kind of movie where Zimmer will shine once again.

Mankind can die in this movie, but for the love of God, I certainly hope that Zimmer can keep his hands off this film eek.gif

Looks more like Contact crossed with The Astronaut Farmer.

Christopher Nolan is such a big draw and an advocate for IMAX, the company is going above and beyond for his latest feature. /Film has exclusively learned IMAX will be specially installing a 15perf/70mm film projection system inside the company’s flagship TCL Chinese Theater IMAX in Hollywood, CA, just for Interstellar.
Too bad the screen is 1.89:1, I would have loved to go see the movie there.

Just 3 miles away is the Universal Citywalk AMC, which is also going to be showing it in film-based IMAX and has a 1.43:1 screen.
