Film Trailers: INTERSTELLAR
The first teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan's next feature Interstellar dropped last week and it really just teases at the possibilities of human beings and space. The ability to expand the mind and move to new, undiscovered horizons. The film stars Matthew McConaughey as an explorer named Cooper that makes use of a newly discovered wormhole that can unbelievably expand time and space travel. The film also contains a loaded cast with Anne Hathaway, Jesscia Chastain, Cillian Murphy, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley, Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace, John Lithgow, David Oyelowo, Bill Irwin and Michael Caine. Caine is a mainstay with Nolan since Batman Begins (2005). The film sounds like another deep, complex sci-fi film from Nolan, who also wrote the screenplay with his brother Jonathan. It is based on scientific theories from theoretical physicist Kip Thorne. The film will be released on November 7, 2014. Also, its the first time Nolan is working with a new cinematographer, the excellent Hoyte Van Hoytema (Her). He usually works with the wonderful Wally Pfister, but he was busy directing his first feature film Transcendence starring Johnny Depp. I am sure a more detailed, less historical driven trailer will be coming soon. Enjoy.
