“Mankind is at a crisis point. The Earth can no longer sustain us. A motley group of scientists have come up with a completely implausible, spectacularly ridiculous plan that is our species’ only hope.” These are words, that when uttered in film trailers, make me very happy indeed. If it’s a disaster movie, I’m in. If it’s a disaster movie set in space, I’ve already bought the popcorn and am waiting for you in the lobby.
Interstellar, directed by Christopher Nolan, is out this November and stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine. There have been a couple of teaser trailers in the last few months, but last week at Comic Con, Nolan revealed the newest trailer which contains some pretty spectacular cinematography. Here’s hoping that the movie won’t be too much of an American cheese-fest in terms of moral messaging and sentimentality. Roll on November!
