The latest trailer for "Interstellar" has arrived - and it's heavy on the emotion, space visuals, and Matthew McConaughey saying goodbye to his kids to save the world. I actually got a bit choked up.
Damn you, Christoper Nolan.
"We used to look up at the sky and wonder at our place in the stars," McConaughey's character says at the beginning. "Now we just look down and worry about our place in the dirt."
As has been hinted, Earth is dying - or at least its agriculture production is, with humans facing extinction. "We must confront the reality that nothing in our solar system can help us," Michael Caine's character said to McConaughey in the first teaser. "We're not meant to save the world. We're meant to leave it. And this is the mission you will train for."
While we get more glimpses of the alien worlds that McConaughey and his crew will discover, this new trailer is really all about love and family - with Zimmer's swelling score accompanying quotes about love and even the classic poem by Dylan Thomas, "Do not go gentle into that good night."
It's all very epic - and by all indications, yet another original piece of masterwork by Christopher Nolan. Look for it Nov. 7.
