As we reported last week, Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey dominated Comic-Con when they previewed the newest trailer for Nolan's upcoming Paramount feature, "Interstellar."  Today, that trailer was released to the public, and it's a home run.

Here's what Anne had to say about Nolan and McConaughey's appearance at Comic-Con--a first time for both men:

After a quiet first day at Comic-Con, Hall H was finally rocked Thursday afternoon at the Paramount panel by an original movie of clear scope and ambition. Christopher Nolan came to Comic-Con for the first time--making an unannounced visit with fellow Con virgin Matthew McConaughey --to show an early trailer for Paramount release "Interstellar" which hits theaters in November. The movie looks gorgeous as well as emotionally wrenching.

Gorgeous, indeed: the new trailer boasts beautiful shots of space travel, McConaughey walking on alien planets, deep in the process of discovery, and offers a few clues to the emotional lynch-pin of the film in the relationship between McConaughey's protagonist and his children.

"Interstellar" opens on November 7, putting it in a great position for awards love and some serious box-office power as well.  Check out the new trailer below--it looks like we have another prototypical Nolan film on our hands: a confident blend of high concept and muscular filmmaking craft.
