Here’s the first full trailer to Christopher Nolan’s space epic. Matthew McConaughey and Michael Caine are the Oscar winners starring in it.
The reason for being? Kind of a call for us to redouble our efforts to go “beyond” and “out there.”
This apocalyptic trailer reminds me of a 1951 film, “When Worlds Collide,” about another last-ditch effort to save humanity by getting some people off the planet before it dies. That film is being remade at some point.
“Interstellar” doesn’t feel to me like the slam-dunk the Nolan name suggests it will be. It doesn’t seem optimistic enough, not enough “Gravity.” But his track record earns him the benefit of the doubt.
