What does it all mean??? That's the question I asked myself after I watched this new teaser trailer for director Christopher Nolan's newest existential sci-fi film, INTERSTELLAR.
The filmmaker, who wrote the screenplay with his brother Jonathan, re-unites with several of his past actors, including Anne Hathaway and Michael Caine. He also welcomes new actors to the Nolan universe, such as Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Topher Grace, John Lithgow, Ellen Burtsyn and David Oyelowo. The concept of the story is derived from theoretical physicist Kip Thorne's theories of gravity fields, wormholes and other hypotheses.
Here's a little more about the film:
The new script chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.
Yeah, I don't quite get it either. But, as we nerds say, in Nolan we trust. The clip has a Tree of Life-like voiceover by McConaughey's character, who is clearly going through some kind of existential crisis. But the teaser is just that--it teases us without giving anything away (including plot).
INTERSTELLAR is in theaters November 7th, 2014.
