Watch: First TV Spot for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar
The first TV spot for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar is here, and it's just as beautiful as the wonderful third trailer (mostly because it seems to be a shortened version of it). But for those of you who missed that trailer:

Interstellar follows a group of astronauts as they attempt to find a habitable planet outside of our solar system, as Earth has been ravaged beyond repair. Based on theories from Caltech astrophysicist Kip Thorne, the astronauts travel through a wormhole in order to reach alien planets that are countless light years away. The human drama seems to centers on Matthew McConaughey's character, who is compelled to leave his children, possibly forever, in order to save humanity. Jessica Chastain plays his daughter as an adult, and through her character the audience can see the psychological toll of living on a rapidly dying planet. Called Nolan's "most ambitious film yet," Interstellar attempts to tie the space opera narrative into larger philosophical themes about the place of humanity in the universe. This ambition is exemplified by the use of the classic poem, "Do not go gentle into that good night" by Dylan Thomas, which explicitly illustrates the psychological side of death and extinction: "Rage, rage, against the dying of the light." Even if this spot is just a repeat of the last trailer, I could listen to Michael Caine read that poem all day.
Interstellar also stars Casey Affleck, Mackenzie Foy, Topher Grace, Wes Bentley and John Lithgow, and was written by Christopher and Jonathan Nolan. It will be released on November 7.
