When we saw the teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s film Interstellar back in December, there were more questions to be answered than about Memento and Inception combined. Questions such as:

  1. What is Interstellar about? Time travel? The Great Depression? Space travel? Aliens?
  2. Is Christopher Nolan going to be up-front about the plot this time?
  3. How is the guy that starred in The Wedding Planner and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (Matthew McConaughey) able to keep inserting himself into serious roles? Better yet, why did he bother taking roles in The Wedding Planner and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days?

Unfortunately, nothing was truly answered, except that we know that Christopher Nolan has written and directed a new film, and Matthew McConaughey was going to follow up his role in Dallas Buyer’s Club and HBO’s “True Detective” with something that will probably be amazing.

Now a newer, longer, more complete trailer for Interstellar has been released. No real answers have been given, only more questions, such as:

  1. Will Matthew McConaughey come back to Earth?
  2. Is Michael Caine the white version of Morgan Freeman?
  3. Why do directors always seem to have the same actors in all their movies?

If the trailer is any hint at the mood of the film, it seems ready to be sad and apocalyptic, which I will be happy to watch. “End of the World” space race themes were given a low blow by Michael Bay’s Armageddon all those years ago. Interstellar should be a deep, interesting take on the struggles of humanity and the struggles of Earth in spite of humanity, and probably more believable. Yes, even with wormholes.

The official synopsis is:

A group of explorers make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

Will they succeed? Whether they do or not, you can be sure that you really won’t be sure. That’s the Christopher Nolan way.
