Christopher Nolan’s first movie since the Dark Knight trilogy will be Nov. 7′s Interstellar, and its trailer is suitably making a debut alongside that other massive film this year, Godzilla. The two and a half minutes are full of awe-inspiring stuff: Black holes, rockets exploding in slow motion, McConaughey.
There are some of the usual things you expect now in any story about space exploration—how many times have these movies started with amber waves of grain and a waving American flag at some Midwestern farmhouse—but have some confidence in Nolan’s track record. He always packs in the thought-provoking moments alongside the customary thrills. The plot details are still relatively under wraps, but Interstellar seems to deal with an Earth on the brink of collapse (the tagline is: “Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.”) as well as the time and logic-bending possibilities of black holes.
The space scenes look great, and this movie should be a must-see. I give it three Alrights.
