Christopher Nolan, the writer and director of Memento, Inception, and the most recent Batman films, is taking up space on the big screen next year — literally. Nolan’s newest film, Interstellar, will be a space exploration adventure featuring Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, and Michael Caine (of course) and, based on this teaser trailer, maintains a reverent awareness of the iconic missions of the Space Age.
I haven’t found much about the storyline other than what’s stated on the IMDB page: “A group of explorers make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.” So there’s some sci-fi involved… hopefully it’s done intelligently and remembers what the most important aspect of sci-fi is; namely, how real people deal with unfamiliar and challenging situations. Special effects, although necessary, should be secondary.

As far as this trailer goes, consider me teased. I don’t even care if the Apollo and Shuttle scenes are in the final film — it’s just great to see them memorialized on screen! (Fanboy grin.)
Interstellar comes out in U.S. theaters November 2014. Visit the official site here.

I bit preemptive? Or is that a Holywad usurpation?
The plot is believed to involve time travel and alternate dimensions…..eek!
I see the plot of this film and raise it one TV Series (Star Trek: Enterprise, Shockwave: Part 2 (2002):
“The Vulcan Science Directorate has determined that Time Travel is impossible.”
Wrong time travel is possible but only to go into the future not the past
*husky trailer voice* “When corn is outlawed on Earth… you must become an astronaut… to grow corn.”
Starts off like “Enterprise”, without the bad music.
I thought the same thing. Hopefully better than “Enterprise” too.
Does this mean that Hollywood is starting to remember how to create great space fiction again? I keep my fingers crossed! If the movie is as awesome and epic as the teaser, I’ll be first in line in the theaters!
Of course it will be done intelligently! It’s Christopher Nolan!
I don’t have many doubts to that, but then again Hollywood does have a tendency to ruin sci-fi with too much of the latter and not enough of the former.
They sometimes don`t show enough.
“…featuring Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, and My Cocaine…”
