Matthew McConaughey Breaks Down In Emotional 'Interstellar' Trailer
By Jackie Willis
Interstellar is sure to give last year's Gravity a run for its money in the category of space dramas.
While Gravity starred Oscar winners George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, Interstellar has Oscar winners Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey taking on space together.
The Dark Knight Rises and Inception director Christopher Nolan heads up this film about a group of explorers who 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. They may even be able to save humans from extinction, which is where the world seems to be headed in this third trailer.
"We used to look up at the sky and wonder about our place in the stars. Now we just look down and worry about our place in the dirt," McConaughey's character Cooper says over desolate scenes.
This recent Interstellar trailer focuses primarily on Cooper and the family he's leaving behind for his space journey. "Maybe we've spent too long trying to figure all this out with theory," Hathaway's character Brand says as eye-catching moments flash across the screen. "Love is the one thing that transcends time and space."
In addition to Hathaway, who starred as Catwoman in DKR, Nolan also enlisted another one of his favorites, Batman sequel star Michael Caine --who's voice overs really make the trailer pop.
Interstellar hits theaters Nov. 7, 2014. Will it be better than Gravity?
