It’s still a little over a month away, but Paramount is giving us a fresh look at Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar that shows star Matthew McConaughey exploring a foreign planet’s icy terrain. “The end of Earth will not be the end of us,” the tagline reads.
The plot details for the film are a tightly guarded secret, but we do know that McConaughey plays an engineer who is sent into space to help save humanity. A short synopsis from a fan website says the film is “Mainly based on the scientific theories and script treatment of renowned theoretical physicist, Kip Thorne.”
In the future, governments and economies across the globe have collapsed, food is scarce, NASA is no more, and the 20th Century is to blame. A mysterious rip in spacetime opens and it’s up to whatever is left of NASA to explore and offer up hope for mankind.
Interstellar chronicles the adventures of 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.
Interstellar opens Nov. 7.
