First Look: Matthew McConaughey Has a Lunar Lander in 'Interstellar'

May 8, 2014


In just over a week, the second official trailer for Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated sci-fi drama Interstellar will arrive with Warner Bros. and Legendary's release of Godzilla. The first teaser poster just debuted with the provoking tagline of, "Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here." And now we have the first official still from the film featuring Matthew McConaughey holding a model of the lunar lander used to leave our mark on the moon. In the foreground are co-stars Timothée Chalamet and Mackenzie Foy. We can't imagine how much the online world will be buzzing after this new trailer hits.

Here's the first photo from Christopher Nolan's Interstellar from EW's iPad edition (via IMDb):


Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the films Doodlebug, Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises. The screenplay is by Christopher Nolan & Jonathan Nolan, based on scientific theories by Caltech astrophysicist Kip Thorne and follows 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. Matthew McConaughey stars in the film which Paramount Pictures releases on November 7th.

How can we be expected to land this on the moon if the astronauts can't even fit inside the lander!?

Xerxexx on May 8, 2014


The lunar lander will have to be at least...three times bigger than this!

DAVIDPD on May 8, 2014


That's it I'm watching it now. Netflix powers activate!

I am happy! We get some bits but nothing to spoil the movie. Will see how they handle this with the trailer.

Can't wait for the trailer!

Where's the buzz for this movie?

I saw the trailer at the air and space museum today. It looks incredible. Also it doesn't seem super sci fi. Everything's your typical modern day space travel gear which is awesome. Also there are some space visuals in the trailer and they are super trippy in a good way.

Christopher Nolan, how can the Internet shit all over your latest movie unless you give us more details? We are waiting with bated breathe to call it overrated!

The stuff Kip Thorne did for the worm hole looks right for a change. Last time there was a worm hole involved I had to sit through something that looked like a tornado. Not sure why we _need_ worm holes, but hey, Hollywood loves em. The lander looked like the concept came from a Lambo. Unfortunately my 1980 Piper Dakota would have a better shot at a hypersonic atmospheric entry. Maybe it has a shroud and a heat shield like a Mars lander. You dont want scratches on it. The film also seems to have a "girl" and a handsome pilot and tag lines. Well, I am only here because Kip is. Sure do miss Stanley K.
