New Trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar looks phenomenal Can't Post

http://www.interstellarmovie.com/index-intl.php

Go to the official movie website and type in the access code 7201969. Yes, the date of the moon landing.

This looks like it could be one of the best Science Fiction films in recent memory. It looks absolutely beautiful. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of Christopher Nolan's films so far, and this looks like it could be up there with his best. I highly recommend checking it out.

Our destiny lies above us.

Was just about to post this [In reply to] Can't Post

I totally agree with your comments, this looks incredible! the cinematography is beautiful and from what I gather the effects are mainly practical, real sets ect. its got a real 2001 vibe about it and really looks like it could be a landmark in sci fi. Iv'e loved all of Nolan's films apart from The Dark knight Rises which I still liked but thought it was his weakest. After TBOTFA this is definitely my most anticipated film for this year.

If the script is good... [In reply to] Can't Post

... this could go through the roof... and with it the chances for any technical awards for Bot5A, imho.

But that homepage and player is surely horrible :D

We all have our hearts and minds one way or another invested in these books and movies. So we all mind and should show the necessary respect.

The homepage is actually really interesting... [In reply to] Can't Post

It's been up for about a week I think and the picture changes slightly every day. The first day it was bright and sunny, now it's starting to get worse. It's to show the Earth's decline in the film's universe. It's actually pretty cool to follow.

Oh yeah, it was. [In reply to] Can't Post

They've put it on YouTube since I posted this. I'm sure it's much easier to watch there now Tongue

I think it looks boring [In reply to] Can't Post

The visuals look stunning, but the story just looks pretty bland to me. I might see it at some point, but probably not in theaters.

Curious... [In reply to] Can't Post

Have you read the official synopsis, or are you just going by the trailer?

Love the new trailer!

Really eager to see this. [In reply to] Can't Post

So much potential for this; I hope Nolan hits it out of the water.

Same here [In reply to] Can't Post

though I must be in the minority and hope the story concentrates more on the events on Earth than the fantasy element set in space. Sorry, when America's idea of manned interstellar flight being Amazon's Jeff Bezos planning to mine Jupiter asteroids for minerals (ie corporate profit, shades of Avatar, anyone?) instead of publicly funded governmental research dedicated to the improvement of scientific knowledge, and the Chinese planning a moon flight for purely egotistical reasons, I don't see the film's premise coming true any time soon...

Yes I agree. [In reply to] Can't Post

And that makes me sad. Not many seem to care about knowledge as much as $$$

I'd like to think Elon Musk is America's idea of manned interstellar flight. [In reply to] Can't Post

He seems to be one of the few making active strides in the advancement of space travel technology... not to mention a viable electric car for all us peeps down here on earth.

I have not read it. [In reply to] Can't Post

But I've now watched both this trailer and the previous teaser, and neither of them looks interesting to me.

Matthew Mcconaughey [In reply to] Can't Post

Is another reason I am so excited about this, I don't know if anyone else has seen him in True Detective and Dallas buyers club but he is absolutely amazing in both and right now he is on an incredible run.

True Detectives was fantastic. [In reply to] Can't Post

DBC is on my list to see.

Check out Mud, if you have not already. Another great Matthew McConaughey movie.

And yes, Interstellar looks to be like another great film by Christopher Nolan. I can't wait for that one.
