See Matthew McConaughey on an Icy Planet in New Interstellar Poster
With the news that Christopher Nolan's Interstellar will not be screening at any festivals prior to its wide opening, the wait for November seems even more interminable. The marketing team has been bombarding us with trailers and teasers, so here's a poster for a change of pace:

Arguably the two most interesting parts of this poster are the tagline and the actors headlining the film. The tagline, "The end of Earth will not be the end of us" could be interpreted as surprisingly hopeful, since the trailers don't depict their mission to save humanity as anything like a guarantee. But more likely, it's just a statement of defiance, similar to their use of Dylan Thomas's "Do not go gentle into that good night." And while previous posters have only listed Matthew McConaughey as the star, this poster lists McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and Michael Caine. The fact that Chastain is third billed isn't surprising, since she, Hathaway, and McConaughey have the most exciting careers of all the stars right now, but it also might mean that we'll spend more time on the ravaged Earth than indicated in the trailers.
Interstellar also stars Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley, Bill Irwin, Mackenzie Foy, and Topher Grace. It opens on November 1.
