With the project still far in the distance in terms of actual release date, Paramount have released a long teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s next film ‘Interstellar’ a science fiction film about pushing the boundaries of space travel through the use of worm holes. The teaser features the voice of the films leading man, Matthew McConaughey, who is one of a number of stars on a typical A-List Nolan type of cast.
Check out the trailer here before reading on:
The film has a number of big time stars involved, many of which are the usual suspects when it comes to Nolan. Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley and Topher Grace are all on board, as well as Nolan veterans Michael Caine and Anne Hathaway.
The film revolves around a group of astronauts who look to travel through newly discovered worm holes in order to push to boundaries of space travel. This will likely include time travel style elements and multi-dimensional maneuvers, which certainly seem to lend beautifully to Nolan’s usual complex, bold style full of crazy but intelligent ideas.
From McConaughey’s moody, inspirational monologue, we get the sense that he has a deep back story to his character, who must have real reason and belief that the boundaries of human discovery need to be pushed further. This man is a guy who cannot put a foot wrong right now, from Lincoln Lawyer, to Dallas Buyers Club to MUD and of course the soon to be released Wolf Of Wall Street. He is almost guaranteed an Oscar nomination this year, and should probably win. So needless to say, I’m thrilled that Christopher Nolan was able to scoop him up for Interstellar.
The film will not be rushed, as is always to case with a Nolan project. Interstellar is set to be released this time next year, so around November of 2014. Let the countdown begin!
