Here's the full trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar from Warner Bros. Pictures:

    to serious for me and its scifi, i watched gravity and it had a few giggle moments with g clooney but not enough and was way to serious, life is about fun and i had more fun and giggles watching something like armagdedon even if it was dumb at least it was fun!!! just my opinon.

      What the shit is wrong with you?
      • Dominic
        the honest reply to arthur , is that space IS Serious Shit . And life in space has to be taken seriously , if yoy want to keep living . Now it helps to have the attitude of Clooney's character , but he was VERY serious when he needed to be . Gravity is supposed to re-awe everyone about space while not sugarcoating its difficulties . Like compatible space station manuals , for one .... Apparently , 'Stellar has the same focus ...

    This is going to be great scifi, I can feel it. Not watching any trailers after this one.
  • Powerful stuff. That shot of McConaughey leavin his kids all teary eyed almost brought a tear to my eye
  • Chris Groves
    It looks superb. I feel that Godzilla and Interstellar are going to be my two favorite films of the year.
  • son_et_lumiere
    thoroughly impressed. overlong but nicely put together. it has that reassuringly weighty, epic feel of something substantial, much bigger in scope and scale than i'd anticipated. in fact, so much more than i got from the initial teaser that i'm buying my ticket solely on this and the pedigree of those involved.

  • cuckoozey
    Can't bring myself to watch it...2:55 seems like it'll show too much...
    • Don't worry it doesn't. It just sets up the premise of the story, but impressively and undoubtedly is holding back all of the goods
      • cuckoozey
        Thanks, I might tomorrow. Guess I'm a little obsessed about this film...
        • cuckoozey
          Finally clicked...damn, seems like this would've made a great summer blockbuster.
          • Charles Griffey
            It is definitely going for Oscar gold, and had it been in the summer it would not have gotten it.
    • Armitall
      Good for you! I said I wouldn't but just could not help myself.

    Brought a huge smile on my face near the end there!
  • disqus_grtpXtCe6j
    Is't that trailer track from V for Vendetta where Natalite Portmans character steps outside?
    • Ezlo
      Yes, and that was an amazing scene, largely due to the music.

    Trailer is good but the ending gave too much away i think. Kinda didn't want to see that. Looks like Gravity "real world" like visual effects. Diggin' that a lot.
  • Son-of-a-bitch. I'm getting in line now. Probably going to lose my job because of it.
  • Snowmanfloza
    Thank you so much for this Mr. Nolan. I really do love this trailer. It makes me so happy.
  • bassy
    if it wasn't nolan id say that was cheesy full of flavor gruyere, but because its nolan id say best ever trailer for a fanboy so enjoy this movie but ill pass.
    • Buzzfunk
      You need to take a chill pill, buddy. Hes entitled to his opinion. Doesn't mean his an asshole. But it does make you look like a fanboy. Personally, i LOVE The Prestige and Memento. 2 of my all-time favorite movies from Nolan. That said, I think the entire Batman Trilogy was rubbish. They looked good but it just wasn't my thing. Inception had so much potential but i felt in the end it was just another shoot em up, action movie. I wouldn't compare him to MB by any means but I do feel at times hes a bit overrated. In the end, no one wants a bad movie. I will be in line for Interstellar on day ONE. Not because of Nolan but just because i love scifi. The trailer looks good, so thats a good start. We shall see.
      • JuanJondre
        What a second...Memento and The Prestige are two of your "all-time favorites," yet you say Nolan is one of the worst directors in 30 years? Ugh. I like healthy debate but contradictions and hyperbole under mind whatever points you have about Nolan movies.

          My account got evidently hacked. I did NOT post that "garbage' comment.
    • bassy
      um quite strange i didn't write the utter garbage comment above, i wonder who did. can disqus find out.
  • NathanDewey
    I like how they used the song from V For Vendetta. I remember seeing Natalie Portman standing in the rain with the thunder clapping in the distance and this song blaring in the theatre gave me chills. It looks pretty interesting, I'll be checking it out for sure. I've liked everything Nolan has done, although I was disappointed by Inception. Hopefully it'll be great.
    • NathanDewey
      My expectations for Inception were probably unreasonably high, it's a credit to how much I like Nolan in general, that I thought Inception would be one of my favourites based on the trailer. But, I felt it dragged a bit and there was no real sense of danger or meaning to much of what was happening. Also, I felt some of the characters weren't really needed and were underdeveloped. Not to say it's a bad movie by any means, I still like it. Maybe, now that my expectations are somewhat lowered - not by much - I'll appreciate this one more.
    • Dotpols
      Wow... comparing Inception to sleeping with 10 uber babes and getting a billion dollars... I mean don't get me wrong, I loved the movie, but you just broke the internet's hyperbole metre.
    • Terry Craig
      Life is better than a movie, and your ridiculous hyperbole shows you haven't lived enough to realize that. And I agree with NathanDewey, Inception has had a hell of a lot potential, but it ended up like a slightly above average Hollywood action flick. It had some great moments, sure, but most of it is exposition scene after exposition scene, and lame gunfights in dreams, where literally anything could be/could have been possible. I think Fincher's The Game is similar in tone and some of its themes, but has done a better job than Inception.
      • Terry Craig
        I was clearly commenting on that very sarcasm, silly.
    • Frater Iacobus
      LOVE that scene from V FOR VENDETTA another classic film
  • Chris Groves
    I've been excited for this film since WAY back in the day when it was slated to be directed by Steven Spielberg. When the project went cold I was hoping Christopher Nolan would jump on board to take over.
  • DJD123
    Looks fantastic. I've been a Nolan fan for such a long time and have been looking forward to this movie since it was in development many years ago with others. What a cast. Should be great.
  • Snev De la Fontaine
    I was kind of hoping this to be set in space for the full film, but I'm excited nonetheless. I hope it's a bit like Contact. Also, it has to be said: Nolan seems to be growing visually.

    Looks fine...

    Michael Caine will never run out of work so long as Nolan is directing.
    • cobrazombie
      I like Michael Caine, but Nolan using him in every film is getting boring.
  • Jorrell Mcdaniel
    In my opinion, One of the greatest trailers ever made. I can`t believe how extraordinary this looks and yet you already know Nolan hasn`t showed you anything yet. I refuse to watch any further trailers or tv spots till this film arrives in IMAX. Jaw dropping, goosebumps inducing. Ugh...Nolan`s fucking done it again.
  • Firehawk70
    Calling that second trailer "gorgeous music" is quite a stretch. There's barely anything of musical value in those 2 minutes. It's a wash of pads and occasional panning on 3 notes. That might be described as sound design, but it's absolutely not music.
    • mu·sic: an art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and color. Hmmm...based on the dictionary definition it seems it "absolutely" is music Firehawk. Granted, it's rather limited, but it's music none-the-less. /end sarcasm

    not even 1/10. You trolls don't even try anymore.
  • Dotpols
    Yep. Definitely seeing this.
  • Terry Craig
    Quite breathtaking, and while it shows a lot, it's still not too much. Having read the script I'm also relieved that Nolan seems to have gotten rid of the wisecracking robot (I'm serious), which was my main concern. This looks truly spectacular and it might just become Nolan's best film in his filmography.
    • denverchris
      I agree with everything you said, except the wiseass robot remark. I liked the robot marine and the "robots with a sense of humor" thread that tracked through to the end. I do think the robots as a CONCEPT are mishandled in the screenplay. Seems to come out of left field. But they are a gateway to the....Chinese stuff that happens early in Act 3.
      • Frater Iacobus
        I agree with you regarding the robots. Robots are always great to see in Science-Ficition especially since they kinda are the invention of the future. And Tars is great and hilarious! Seeing his name pop up in the trailer is great that Nolan will still use him. Using really knowledgeable Robots I think are a great way to help humans see things from a different perspective and usually an even better one since Robots' intelligence or at least in this one tends to really surpass them hence making the humans really think more when it comes to fulfilling the mission and accomplishing the great task.
    • Terry I don't know if it really shows that much, though. I think it shows just enough, but we certainly have no clue what's on the other side of that wormhole. To me, that's one of the more interesting parts I want to see in the theater.
      • jasonca
        around the 1:40-1:42 mark in the trailer the moving metal monolith has the word TARS engraved/laser etched on it.
        • I'm not sure what you mean though? Did that give away the entire film?
          • Frater Iacobus
            TARS is a robot that helps them with the mission from the script..doesn't give anything away.. like HAL from 2001! :) The script is available online if you google it. And Nolan still is very much is at least sticking to the first part of the script which is cool because it works and is really well thought out since his Brother Jonathan is a genius..
          • And that Robot is voiced by...Matt Damon??? He really doesn't have a 'good' voice in my book. Hope they pull it off.
          • Frater Iacobus
            LOL! How do you know that the robot is voiced by Matt Damon? That's hilarious though if it is! I agree with you that Matt Damon isn't the best candidate for a good robot. Have you read the script yet? It's leaked online. And the script is good or at least the story is but the dialogue after they leave they leave the Earth is definitely sketchy and Christopher Nolan releasing it in November many people are gearing towards the film will definitely be an awards contender so I think Nolan is sure going to have to really work on making the speech better or at least more emotional and relevant towards the humanity's last chance to find another home.
      • Terry Craig
        That's kind of what I meant, I guess, because the trailer seems to show the entire first part of the film (in a condensed version), while pretty much leaving out the second, more amazing part, and wisely so. It would have been easy to just compile shots of the mindboggling and otherworldly visuals of the film in the trailer to woo audiences, but I'm glad they didn't (except for the glimpse of the wormhole and bending stars). Instead the trailer just summarizes the plot up until the halfpoint. I don't need to watch anymore trailers after this one.
        • Do we need to be concerned about that AI voice? Or is that going to be a physical robot? You mentioned 'wisecracking'. It so doesn't seem to fit to the tone of the trailer..its hard to imagine.
          • Terry Craig
            @jasonca:disqus spotted the name which was given to said robot in the script, inscribed on a rather abstract (monolith from '2001' anyone?) black block machine in the trailer (good eye, jason!). So that means the character apparently is still in the movie, but the script gave off a vibe (to me at least) that these robots look much more humanoid than that. With 'wisecracking' I meant that in the script TARS was programmed to show sarcasm/humor in order to be more relatable to humans (and on a meta-level, to movie-goers as well). I just thought that his one-liners were too cheesy and were too obvious "comic relief." But considering how TARS looks in the trailer, maybe they cut out the 'relatable character' thing, and maybe left the character at the same 'human' level as 'HAL9000'.
          • Ah that makes sense now. I cannot believe the script is out there? No way will i read it. I like the design of TARS. Very cool. Visually it all reminds me of Gravity, sorta real but still scifi. Love this.
    • Frater Iacobus
      I also think Nolan is going more towards Matthew McConaughey's Character Cooper and his team encountering extra-terreistal life on the other side of the wormhole enabling the Earth to be able to survive by traveling through the wormhole and by invitation being able to share and live with an advanced civilization on other planets, hence saving humanity from extinction on Earth. I think this would be cool if this is where Christopher Nolan's original idea is leaning towards..but we'll have to wait and see!!! :)
  • Just for balance, who would you consider the greatest director of the last 30 years?
  • Buzzfunk
    That wasnt me posting this. My account got hacked. Apologies.
  • $8439145
    Why are you impersonating my account, asshole?
  • Tuomas Lassila
    Was this supposed to be good?
  • The14th
    Interesting that they dipped into the V for Vendetta soundtrack for the trailer theme.
  • VAharleywitch
    Looks amazing, and makes a bit more sense why they'd take the risk to chuck some folks through a wormhole. Got my mom's interest peaked, and she's usually not one for 'cerebral' SciFi.
  • This trailer is indeed a masterpiece. The tone, the pacing, the music..its perfect. Not sure if this considered a spoiler (since this is just an observation on my end, a guess i suppose) but i think i figured out something cool... all that talk in the trailer about "im coming back" and "must go beyond our lifespan" lead me to the conclusion that Jessica chatain's character is actually his aged daughter (kid has red hair as she does). So either he will come back himself not having aged a day (they seem to be going into a cryo chamber to sleep for interstellar travels) and shes an adult now. Or maybe even older. When i thought about it, it gave me goosebumps. Not a twist ending but something that would be an emotional payoff..we shall see!
    • treidon
      I made the same observation. Casey Affleck looks like he could be the adult version of the boy, maybe. I bet Matt Damon does the voice of the onboard AI/Robot on the ship.
      • Oh i forgot about MD. Interesting. I really hope they keep that tone of the trailer. I was reading somewhere here from someone who read the script that is (or was) a wisecracking robot? That would just kill it for me but hopefully its more like 2001 and Moon than anything else....
  • Payne by name
    The music in the trailer is an inspired choice for matching with the visuals. The trailer tells a mighty big story and offers some thought provoking questions. I hope the film has the shoes to fill it and doesn't become too wrapped up in it's own cleverness as Inception (in my opinion) ultimately did.
    • Yes, however, how many times did we see a trailer, a great trailer and the final movie was nothing like it. Tone wise. Best example, Prometheus (Sorry dont mean to open a dead horse). The original trailer was epic but the final movie was a complete disaster (In my book).
      • Payne by name
        Oh I agree. Prometheus was a truly awful but the most disappointing film that I've seen following a thought provoking trailer has to be Man of Steel.
  • Matthew
    I just cried a little.
