Full-Length Trailer For Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar' Gives Us A Better Idea Of What The Movie Is About

Say what you want about Christopher Nolan's style of film making, or his much more grounded and gritty take on Batman, but there's no denying the man has talent. While for many fans, it's still hard to imagine a world where Nolan is no longer directing The Dark Knight films, and Christian Bale won't be the man donning the cape and cowl, but the world keeps turning regardless. Now Nolan's ready to take the first step in his post-Batman career with his new film Interstellar, and while we knew little about it's plot before hand, we now have our first full-length trailer for the film that certainly clears the air for us.

Below is the first trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar:

Director Christopher Nolan has become one of those filmmakers that people are always waiting to see what he'll do next, and especially now with his full focus on solo film efforts rather than comic book films. The last time we got a non-Batman related film from Nolan, we got the engaging psychological thriller Inception, which not only featured a star-studded cast lead by Leonardo DiCaprio, but a near flawless story that is easily recognizable by any film goer. Like Inception, Interstellar's plot has pretty much been shrouded in mystery since the moment it was announced, and although we get a lot more from this new trailer, Nolan still remains keen on keeping the secrets of the film out of the public eye for now, which was one of the marketing ploys that helped make Inception so impactful.
So of course, it comes as no surprise that considering how much footage this new trailer gave us (At least compared to the few snippets the last trailer did) much of the film's plot is still very vague. We've no for quite some time that the movie would be focused on astronauts in space, but it seems now that a lot of the narrative will actually be taking place on Earth. From what we know of the plot, the film will focus on a shortage of food supply on Earth, and an engineer named Coop (McCaughney) is then recruited to join an astronaut (Hathaway) on a mission into a wormhole, which some how holds the key to Earth's survival. It certainly sounds like an interesting yet simple idea on paper, but taking into consideration that this is a Nolan film, we can expect a space film much less straightforward than this past year's Gravity.
If there's one thing Nolan's films have always had, it's a variety of talent on both ends of the camera. Interstellar is yet another writing collaboration between Nolan and his brother Jonathan (Person of Interest), who worked with Chris on the scripts for the last two Dark Knight films, and The Prestige. And in front of the camera, Nolan has assembled an outstanding line-up of world class actors, including some of his frequent collaborators. But most notable are Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughy as the film's two leads, both of whom have more than proven themselves in the last few years. McConaughy especially has been gaining a lot of traction with his career, which has included an Oscar win for Dallas Buyer's Club. It seems McConaughy will make a reasonable substitute for Leonardo DiCaprio as Nolan's new leading man.
