‘Interstellar’ trailer released: First look at Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic

- December 14th, 2013

Chris Nolan fans rejoice! We’re getting our first look at the director’s upcoming sci-fi epic Interstellar.

With a voice over provided by star Matthew McConaughey, the teaser trailer doesn’t show much action or offer up anything in the way of plot, but the 1-minute-and-43-second ad does do a good job fanning the flames of anticipation.

The film is based on the theories of physicist Kip Thorne, and revolves around a group of explorers who make use of a wormhole to further mankind’s journey into the depths of the universe via interstellar travel.

A plot description from the official website reads: “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.”

In addition to McConaughey, the film stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck, David Gyasi, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Timothée Chalamet, Topher Grace, David Oyelowo, Ellen Burstyn, Michael Caine and Matt Damon.

The film promises to push the boundaries for Nolan visually, with the Dark Knight trilogy director affixing an IMAX camera to a Learjet to capture some of the film’s aerial sequences (via reddit).

Very cool indeed. I can’t wait. Let us know what you think in the comments.

Quentin Tarantino would ‘love to work’ with Johnny Depp

Quentin Tarantino has resurrected the careers of Hollywood has-beens like John Travolta and Pam Grier, and he has worked with A-listers like Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro and Bruce Willis. But fresh off his recent announcement that he plans to stop making films after he completes his 10th feature (that’s approximately 10 years away), the Django Unchained director has revealed a few more actors he’d like to collaborate with between now and the end.

Top of that list? Well, it’s none other than Johnny Depp.

“We would love to work together. We’ve talked about it for years,” Tarantino said in a recent interview with Charlie Rose [via The Playlist]. “We’re obviously fans of each other. It just needs to be the right character. I just need to write the right character that I think Johnny would be the right guy to do it with. And if he agrees, then we’ll do it. And then it’ll be magical. I haven’t written the perfect character for Johnny Depp as of yet. Maybe someday I will, maybe someday I won’t. We’ll see.”

Johnny has previously worked with Tarantino’s pal Robert Rodriguez, turning in a scene-stealing performance as Sheldon Sands in 2003′s Once Upon a Time in Mexico.

During the Charlie Rose interview, Tarantino was also asked to name-drop others on his collab wishlist. The director revealed that in addition to Depp, he hopes to work with Meryl Streep and Michael Caine.

“I’ve always been a huge Michael Caine fan,” Tarantino said. “And I’d love to work with Meryl Streep. I actually think we’d get along like a house on fire, even though I don’t really know her.”

Honestly, while I can see Caine and QT getting on, I can’t picture Meryl spewing a symphony of f-bombs.

You can watch the whole interview below. In the meantime, let us know: Would you like to see Tarantino and Depp make a film together? Is there another actor you think should be part of Quentin’s three remaining films? Should QT even retire?
