Watch: New Trailer For Christopher Nolan's ‘Interstellar’ Delivers More Majestic Wonder & Awe

“Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.” That’s the tagline for Warner Bros.’/Paramount’s upcoming fall blockbuster, Christopher Nolan's “Interstellar." Those words could be modified for the fans-travaganza in San Diego last weekend: “Christopher Nolan was born on Earth. He was never meant to go to Comic-Con.” The notoriously secretive filmmaker had never been to the preeminent sci-fi and fantasy convention in his entire career, despite having made his 'Batman' trilogy, a series made for the Comic-Con crowd. Yet Paramount Pictures took over Hall H on Thursday, and quite unexpectedly, Nolan was in attendance with his "Interstellar" lead Matthew McConaughey (read our report here). Of course, he unveiled the latest trailer at the Con, which has now hit the Internet today.

“Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.” That’s the tagline for Warner Bros.’/Paramount’s upcoming fall blockbuster, Christopher Nolan's “Interstellar." Those words could be modified for the fans-travaganza in San Diego last weekend: “Christopher Nolan was born on Earth. He was never meant to go to Comic-Con.” The notoriously secretive filmmaker had never been to the preeminent sci-fi and fantasy convention in his entire career, despite having made his 'Batman' trilogy, a series made for the Comic-Con crowd. Yet Paramount Pictures took over Hall H on Thursday, and quite unexpectedly, Nolan was in attendance with his "Interstellar" lead Matthew McConaughey (read our report here). Of course, he unveiled the latest trailer at the Con, which has now hit the Internet today.

The clip peels back a lot of layers, unveiling a lot of footage we haven't seen before of lead actors McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain. But the mystery within still remains and will probably stay under wraps well until the fall. Nolan seems to be channeling  a Kubrick-ian variety of majestic grandeur: Evidently, the movie concerns a group of explorers who employ a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel. Why? Because Earth appears to be dying.

"Interstellar" also co-stars Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, Topher Grace, David Oyelowo, Wes Bentley and even Matt Damon in a small role. There had been rumors that the film could be screnned during the fall film festival circuit, but given that Toronto, NYFF and Venice have already unveiled their main slates, it’s a near certainty it won’t turn up now. Co-written by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan (and once originally pegged to be a Steven Spielberg project), "Interstellar" opens in theaters on November 6.
