As far as teaser trailers go, it doesn’t get much tease-ier than this: the two-minute teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming space travelling, time travelling, reality-jumping-via-wormholes movie, Interstellar.
The trailer spends a good chunk of its running time showing us stock footage comprised of scenes of human exploration, trial, and tribulation, while Matthew McConaughey’s voiceover reminds us of a time when space travel was a tantamount concern of humanity. It’s got an oddly Reagan-esque “It’s Morning In America Again” feeling to it, as it aims to re-inspire humanity to reach for the stars.
Other than that, it’s pretty damn hard to read:
I suppose we can’t hold it against the trailer for being so vague—with the film’s release date set for November 7, 2014, the movie isn’t even done filming yet. So we have at least another year of blindly grabbing at straws and guessing what the film is about, rather than just waiting to see it.
Directed and co-written by Christopher Nolan, and co-starring Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Jessica Chastain, and Ellen Burstyn, expect Interstellar to be the mega-budget film everyone obsesses about for the next year until a trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron is released.
What do you think of the Interstellar trailer?
