Interstellar Trailer To Screen Before Godzilla; Description Sounds Epic
"Mankind was born on Earth, it was never meant to die here." That's the official tagline for Christopher Nolan's upcoming sci-fi epic Interstellar and quite frankly, it's enough to get me giddy with excitement.
A few lucky guys and gals were treated to a sneak preview of the first full trailer for the movie during an event at Washington DC's Air and Space Museum and the Washington Post has described it in one paragraph below...
"The trailer unspooled to show Matthew McConaughey driving his truck through corn fields while a lush orchestral score swelled in the background. Later, the fields had caught fire, an ominous dust cloud could be seen looming over a baseball game, and McConaughey (playing a character named Cooper) was reassuring his daughter that he loved her - right before being shot into space in order to save the world."
Well, doesn't that sound pretty gosh darn epic? We were already excited about Christopher Nolan's ambitious project when we learned that he was attaching IMAX cameras to Leer Jets, but the tagline and brief description by the Washington Post are just so tantalizing.
Those who live in the DC area should head to the Lockheed Martin IMAX theater to watch the trailer, which will be screening continuously until at least May 16th. But for those elsewhere, you've just been given one more reason to go and see Godzilla next weekend.
There is actually a pretty detailed plot summary on IMDB, but we find it hard to believe Nolan and co. would allow such a spoiler-heavy description to be up there if it was accurate. What we do know is that it is going to involve some serious space travel - we're talking wormhole space travel - and could even play around with the idea of alternate dimensions.
Interstellar stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and Jessica Chastain, and you can catch it in theaters and IMAX from November 7th.
