"We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible."

Warner Bros have just released their first tantalising teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan's (The Dark Knight Rises) science fiction epic, Interstellar.





Featuring only a few seconds of actual movie footage (showing an intense, teary Matthew McConaughey driving through cornfields), this is a teaser in the truest sense – more of a mood-piece, if you like, or the long-game set up.

McConaughey's newsreel monologue is a voice from the future, a damaged world where NASA is a memory, and it both celebrates the urges to explore and innovate, and laments their demise. That gives the final shot of an ascending rocket real impact and a powerful sense of anticipation and pure optimism – complemented no end by what sounds to be another pulse raising score from Hans Zimmer. If nothing else, this first glimpse at the new Nolan glows with the promise of a truly epic journey to come.





Interstellar also stars Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Anne Hathaway (Les Misérables), Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games), Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone), Michael Caine (Inception), David Oyelowo (Jack Reacher), Topher Grace (Predators), Mackenzie Foy (The Conjuring), John Lithgow (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes) and Ellen Burstyn (W.), and will hit UK cinemas on 7 November next year.
