First Glimpse At 'Interstellar' Gives Very Little Away - Why Are We So Excited Then!?
The first teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan's sci-fi epic was released this week
Earlier this week we were treated to the first teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan's sci-fi epic Interstellar. The trailer really did put the 'teaser' back in to teaser trailer, as it consisted only of archive footage of various historical events, with Matthew McConaughey's rich Texan drawl narrating something inspirational over the top of the images. It gave absolutely nothing away in regards to what we can expect to see in the film, but frankly we don't even care.
Not to jump to conclusions, but Nolan might have done it again
Nolan has been working in relative secrecy on the project along with his brother, Jonathan Nolan, with the basis of the film apparently being inspired by a story by physicist Kip S. Thorne. We already know this, as well as the fact that McConaughey will be starring in the film alongside Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine and others, and after seeing the first glimpse of the film this is still all we know in regards to what the Nolan Bros. have in store for us. Their secrecy might make some angry, but frankly the secrecy is just making us more and more excited for the complex film.
Steven Spielberg was initially attached to direct a movie version of Thorne's story in 2006, with Jonathan coming in to work on the screenplay in 2007. When Spielberg dropped the project, Christopher became interested in what his brother was working on and decided to make it his first post-Batman director job. The screenplay has been developed from Thorne's story, which involves the use of wormholes as time travel portals, with these theories expected to feature prominently in the film.
According to IMdB, the film will follow the adventures of "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."
The film will arrive in cinemas in November 2014.
