The British trailer for Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar was posted by Warner Bros a few hours ago, and it’s…OK. It seems that at some point in an indeterminate future we lose the ability to feed ourselves (despite the huge cornfields in the trailer) though luckily Matthew McConaughey is around to pilot a mission to find other habitable worlds.
Along the way the astronauts apparently encounter the sphere from Sphere.
The trailer also reminded me of Salvage 1, though I assume that McConaughey didn’t build his spaceship out of junk.
Though what I am really curious about is if Christopher Nolan can make a huge movie that has nothing to do with Batman. Technically you could say he already has, being that he also directed Memento as well as Inception.
Though Memento was his first mainstream feature, and had a relatively small budget ($7 million dollars)–he directed Following prior–and Inception came between The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, which was a really great place to be.
The question remains: Can he still bring his A-game without the Bat?
