The third and final trailer for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming movie Interstellar has just been released online, and it really demonstrates the epic scale of the film. The last trailers were of a traditional trailer-length and gave a very basic overview of the plot, but this one is a full two-and-a-half minutes of exposition and awesome visuals. It might be giving away a bit too much, but it’s still hard to resist watching.
Interstellar is set in the not-too-distant future when Earth’s climate has become less than hospitable to human life. With the extinction of the human race a real possibility, the first manned mission is sent to a distant solar system in hopes of finding a new home for mankind. It’s clearly a sci-fi flick, but it doesn’t look like the same story that gets told repeatedly in far-future space operas or in dystopian thrillers.
The movie will have a stronger grounding in science than most in this genre. American theoretical physicist Kip Thorne is one of the producers of Interstellar and consulted on many aspects of the visuals. The trip to alien worlds involves a shortcut through a wormhole, and what you’ll see in the film is based on calculations done by Thorne to make it as realistic as possible. He claims this aspect of the story takes general relativity into account, which is pretty unusual.
Interstellar will be in theaters in the US and Canada on November 7th, but the IMAX version on 70mm film will open two days earlier on November 5th. In case you don’t keep up on who’s who in Hollywood, the trailer features stars Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway. Interstellar also features Jessica Chastain, John Lithgow, Michael Caine, and plenty of over actors you’ll look up on IMDB to remember where you’ve seen them before.
