The first trailer for Christopher Nolan's upcoming sci-fi epic Interstellar has hit the web, and it's clear that the Dark Knight director is keeping everyone guessing. The official synopsis is that Interstellar follows the human obsession with overcoming the impossible and cutting down the limitations - but, well, that could mean anything.

Ok, so there's a little more than that. Essentially, a group of curious space-explorers uncover a wormhole in the universe that can allow them to make critical shortcuts through spacetime. They set out on an intergalactic expedition never before undertaken by man, to find whole new worlds.

Little more information has been announced, though Nolan's movie - his first since the Batman trilogy - stars Matthew Mcconaughey, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck and Matt Damon.

Interstellar - a joint project between Paramount and Warner Bros - is from a script based on the combination of an original idea by Nolan and an existing script by Jonathan Nolan.

Announcing the deal earlier this year, Brad Grey, Chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures said, "As a filmmaker and storyteller, Chris has continuously entertained the world with his extraordinary and unparalleled talents. I am pleased beyond measure to welcome him to the Paramount Pictures family. Partnering with Chris, Emma, Lynda and Warner Bros. to release this original idea next November is the perfect way to start the Thanksgiving and holiday movie season for audiences around the world."
