And so it begins, one year out from release, the new, no doubt, mega awesome film from the genius behind INCEPTION, THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY and MEMENTO brings us a trailer for his new film – INTERSTELLAR.

It is all sci-fi and it is all Nolan. The screenplay is written by Nolan and his brother Jonathan. The film idea has been around for a long time though. Since 2006 in fact, when Steven Spielberg was attached to direct – the younger Nolan came on board to write the screenplay in 2007. As late as 2010, the idea was still in play for those two to collaborate.

While the plot is very sketchy and not much is shown in the trailer, the basic premise something like this:

Set in the future, the movie details the toll climate change has taken on agriculture, with corn the last crop to be cultivated. The scientists embark on a journey through a worm hole into other dimensions in search of somewhere other crops can be grown.

The film stars a mammoth cast with Matthew McConaughey in the lead. It also stars Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway and veteran character actor Bill Irwin also. Oscar winner Ellen Burstyn (Requiem for a Dream), Mackenzie Foy (The Conjuring The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2) John Lithgow, Wes Bentley, David Oyelowo, David Gyasi, Game of Thrones actor Elyes Gabel  and  even an uncredited Matt Damon.

Here is a monologue from the trailer delivered by McConaughey.

We’ve always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments, these moments when we dared to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known, we count these moments as our highest achievements, but we lost all that. And perhaps we’ve just forgotten that we are still pioneers, and we’ve barely begun, and that our greatest accomplishments can not be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.
