Never being one to simply chuck us a trailer for anything he works on, the latest preview for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar has arrived online but only through clever and crafty means. After a visit to the films official site and entering the special combination 7201969 (which is of course, the date for the Apollo 11 moon landing - doy), fans of the fella behind Inception and The Dark Knight trilogy can get a lengthy and breathtaking glimpse at his next venture. Go here to see it and ignore any further babble written in this article from here on out. I won't be offended at all, honest.
UPDATE! See the trailer below the old fashioned way, much easier.
Still with me? Well how kind of you! So, the trailer then? Well, it's safe to say that Nolan's next sci-fi story looks to share the same visual flair of anything that's come before it in the directors efforts. Showing a slowly dying Earth that our reluctant space explorer Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) is on a mission to save, the real treat comes when he's sent off to space and whisked through a newly discovered wormhole. What lies at the other end of it is unknown but it could hold the key to saving our planets troubled inhabitants and finding a new place to call home.
As gorgeous as some of the scenes are that are on show, it's worth noting that the film looks to pack an emotional wallop as well considering the amount of tears that are shed. The mission Coop takes is one filled with questions; how long will he be gone? Might he even come back safe and sound or is our planets fate sealed and he's got a golden ticket off the doomed rock? We can only wait to find out.
Backing the unstoppable Matthew McConaughey in the promising space effort that is [Interstellar](movie:813746) are Nolan familiars Anne Hathaway and Michael Caine. There's also Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, John Lithgow, Wes Bentley, Bill Irwin, Mackenzie Foy, Topher Grace, David Gyasi and Ellen Burstyn to lend their talents. See them all and learn just what Nolan has planned when Interstellar lands in cinemas November 7.
