Happy Friday everyone! To celebrate, lets ponder the fate of the human race! YAY!!!
The first full trailer for Christopher Nolan’s new movie Interstellar is out, check it out below! We had seen a teaser trailer a bit ago, and as usual with his movies details are kept very tight and very secret (even IMDB says the plot is unknown). We heard some things that it was going to involve surpassing mankinds limitations on space travel, and some others were saying maybe it was going to revolve around corn somehow. But we now know from the trailer that this movie will deal with the fact that humans are running out of food. We don’t need scientists, or engineers, we need food. And we have to think beyond surviving as a family, or as a country, we have to think of surviving as an entire species. And we must search for survival options for our species beyond our solar system by making use of (ahem) Interstellar travel. Check out the trailer –
This movie sounds amazing in every way. I love the concept and the “big picture” thinking that Christopher Nolan always brings to the table,. Plus the ideas behind this movie are very real, and very relevant. I would be excited for this to be any Christopher Nolan movie, but the fact that its also a space travel movie just excites the nerd in me even more. I am hoping that the movie doesn’t go too far off on that tangent however, we have seen movies built around great ideas and concepts that just took a massive turn for the worse (Prometheus I’m looking at you buddy – you can listen to our review of that piece of crap here). But if anyone can hold this type of movie together its Christopher Nolan. He has a fantastic ability to build movies around these huge concepts and keep it there, front and center, through the whole movie.
Let us know what you think about the trailer below in the comments! And check the podcast this week to hear Paul and I discuss this trailer on this weeks show where we will be reviewing Godzilla!
