i hope its a 3hour journey

Rembo on Jul 30, 2014


Lol I was thinking the same thing! I hope it's at least 2 hours and 40 minutes.

Big R on Jul 30, 2014


and if it's only 2:10 or 2:20 you KNOW they left too much on the cutting room floor , to squeeze into the BluRay ...

Dominic on Jul 30, 2014


I don't think Nolan has ever done an extended cut. Wouldn't expect one now.

denverchris on Jul 31, 2014


Oscars all around, this looks GREAT!!!!!

SteadyEddieTX on Jul 30, 2014


Astonishing ? come on man, yeah its looks cool and we cant wait, but Astonishing ?

Tester on Jul 30, 2014


Too much hyperbole? How about... spectacular, incredible, phenomenal, extraordinary. 🙂

Alex Billington on Jul 30, 2014


how about just kick ass !!

Tester on Jul 30, 2014


Well i wouldn't call it all of those names but it sure looks like an interesting, original movie to say the least. However, I really dont like how they cut this trailer together. The first official trailer is still the best and works much better with the dialog and the music. I also think this shows too much. Kinda wish i didn't click to see it...

Sascha Dikiciyan on Jul 30, 2014


That's because you're a known hater.

Buzzsaw on Jul 30, 2014


BTW Alex, curious to hear what Zimmer has cooked up for this!! 🙂

Sascha Dikiciyan on Jul 30, 2014


Astonishing is what it is.

Buzzsaw on Jul 30, 2014


The full screenplay is out there. Hazard a read if you are OK with spoiling some of the experience. So far, most everything from all three trailers is IN that screenplay and yes... for a movie to have this much scope, such far-out sci-fi ideas and be as grounded as it reads... it's astonishing. No bullshit.

denverchris on Jul 31, 2014


WOW. imo, Nolan has kind of lost a little bit of what I loved about him since hitting it big with TDK, I wasnt nearly as much a fan of Inception or TDKR as I was his previous works. But THIS, wow, i think what nolan needed was something a little less 'plotty' and more character driven, there was just so much exposition that needed to happen in inception and TDKR i thought it bogged them both down a little bit, but this looks like a relatively simple story with focus on characterization and transcendent visuals. Im all in.

jay on Jul 30, 2014


Yeah I don't know what the fuck happened on TDKR. All the elements were there, but lazy plotting killed it dead. Can't agree on Inception. For me, that movie was panacea. There's plenty of plotting in Interstellar, but it's rooted in love, as much as I hate putting it like that.

denverchris on Jul 31, 2014


I wont argue with you on inception. I didnt love it, but i can definitely see how people would. and yeah, it was miles ahead of TDKR. haha, for sure, it is hard to put it in a way that also doesnt feel too cheesy. Im hoping for something in between sunshine and 2001 a space odyssey.

jay on Jul 31, 2014


The script is more a cross between 2001 and The Abyss, thematically.

denverchris on Aug 2, 2014


I must say yes this movie looks very ambitious but in my opinion possibly too ambitious. Plus it just seems like it's falling in the shadow of Gravity. It just wants to be the next visual Hollywood space movie and that's all people would see it as. Definitely not an original concept but just bordering the lines of generic. Well going to have to wait and see. Remember when everyone was hyped to see Transcedence? Yeah, am not letting this trailer go over my head like most people would.

Stephen Ritchie on Jul 30, 2014


For me personally I am reminded of a lot of Arthur C Clarke when I see these trailers, and that excites me. Maybe one day some one will get around to making a movie out of those most excellent books.

Brian Sleider on Jul 30, 2014


If they can adapt "The Songs Of Distant Earth" or "Rendevous With Rama" properly...they would make great films.

Scopedog on Jul 30, 2014


Much like Hollywood has only scratched the surface of the CB genre's stories ( 40 years of Wolverine , for ex , much less 80 years of Supes and Bats ) , they have BARELY made a dent in the sci-fi books that can be adapted ... I'd like to see Allistair Reynolds new series( Blue Remembered Earth is the 1st book ) made into films , as the dominant theme is the rise of Africa as a world space power in the 22nd and 23rd century . Which might inspire that continent ..David Brin's UPLIFT series ? ... I could open up my Science Fiction Book Club newslettter , and prob find about 20 books worthy of being made into movies . Much Less the wealth of sci-fi from the 50's and 60's - Arthur C Clarke's and Asimov's generation ...

Dominic on Jul 30, 2014


Foundation any one? A series that spans some 40,000 years. Or the Robot series. The fact the more Asimov has not been adapted is sad.

Brian Sleider on Jul 30, 2014


I'll throw Simmons' Hyperion books out there. Easily filmable, nice pro-environment message, great characters, science vs religion themes. The first three Robot books could be good. Or hell, just jump right into it with the Robots of Dawn.

denverchris on Jul 31, 2014


could get a lot of movies from it yes plus the other tie-in books Asimov put out , like the Lazarus Long series .. it couldn't get greenlighted before , because Hollywood didn't take sci-fi seriously . until NOW , that they HAVE to ..or they have no billion-dollar -grossing movie ideas ...

Dominic on Jul 31, 2014


Agreed. The sad thing is that a classic novel could be acquired (or rather, the rights) and it could take years to make the film. EDGE OF TOMORROW--which was based on a Japanese SF novel--is a notable exception, since it took around four years from script to final film. I'd love to see someone tackle Hogan's THE TWO FACES OF TOMORROW, actually....

Scopedog on Jul 31, 2014


The Rama series is one of the best pieces of SciFi around. It would be such a massive undertaking to make, but it could be beautiful.

Brian Sleider on Jul 30, 2014


There have been plans to adapt "Rama", but they remain stuck in development hell, sadly.

Scopedog on Jul 31, 2014


Shadow of Gravity? Plueassse. Gravity has superb visuals but that was it. The movie has no deeper meaning, at least to me. And what hype for Transcedence are u talking about? There was never any hype. Everyone knew it was going to suck after watching the trailers. And you know, with all the superhero crap and reboots these days, I think Interstellar's concept is very original and I gladly take it.

Sascha Dikiciyan on Jul 30, 2014


To answer your questions, I meant "shadow of Gravity" as in, both of these concepts are set within Space. They may be different from one to another but there are still going to be people that would make comparisons which could end up good or bad. Transcedence had no hype? There was clearly a lot of people looking foward to the film especially with the cast and Nolan's own cinematographer being at the helm. And it surely ended disappointing a lot of critics that were looking foward to it. And there is no way you can say with a straight face Interstellar's concept is original. A group of people exploring space? Where have we heard this before um almost every single science fiction film made in the last decades? Basically hardly of any of Nolan's films is original, he just adds pieces to a concept that has already been done before like many directors do and try to make it feel fresh. Inception is a strong example.

Stephen Ritchie on Jul 30, 2014


well yes Thank God the concept's not original , any more .. - all the Alien movies are technically people exploring space , for ex .. - but yes Gravity inspires even more copycats , on the premise that the new SFX makes the movies even better graphically . Hollywood ALWAYS makes copycat movies , as the knowledge OF the Project called Gravity has prob been available for 5-10 years . once people see the buzz for the movie is working , they copy it ... Not that I am a Nolan fanboy but , " he just adds pieces to a concept that has already been done .. " is all ANY director does now , as there are NO new ideas . Just different ways to present them . or different memes to view old themes thru , like sci-fi and comic book characters .. So I GUESS you can ONLY judge them on How Fresh they make it Seem ...

Dominic on Jul 30, 2014


There was plenty of hype for Transcendence before it hit the cameras. Nolan's DP's first film? That cast? A flick about the Singularity? Buzz killed the hype but quick, though.

denverchris on Jul 31, 2014


Gravity was excellent, if Interstellar is as good as gravity it will be an achievement. Wether you want to admit it or not there was plenty of hype around Transcendence, I was excited for it. I never saw it after the abysmal reveiws but the premise was exciting and the cast was too.

Jon Odishaw on Jul 31, 2014


hahahha...the bar for trolling is clearly beneath the ground these days

Buzzsaw on Jul 30, 2014


As long as Christopher Nolad directs, Michael Cane has a job;)

Szkari on Jul 30, 2014


Naah, I'll skip this one.

Tuomas Lassila on Jul 30, 2014


Brilliant movies aren't for everyone.

Buzzsaw on Jul 30, 2014


Especially if the brilliant film seems like a good place to take a sleep.

Tuomas Lassila on Jul 31, 2014


Stick to Transformers....more your speed

Buzzsaw on Aug 1, 2014


Yeah good idea, and Marvel Cinematic Universe films, love those 😀

Tuomas Lassila on Aug 1, 2014


There's always one in every room, right? That's cool. That's why mumblecore exists.

denverchris on Jul 31, 2014


Very cool trailer. That's quite the wave at around he 1:56 mark. Looks very emotional as well. Looks like it'll be filled with a lot of awe-inspiring visuals. That glimpse of Topher Grace has me wondering what part he plays. Wes Bentley as well. Good stuff.

NathanDewey on Jul 30, 2014


Yes please. Dang it this looks so good. I can't wait to see this movie and I already felt emotional watching a 1 minute trailer. As a kicker, if this music is truly from the movie soundtrack, it is absolutely beautiful.

I'm Batman on Jul 30, 2014


Im just amazed that a trailer that showed so little managed to give away so much. Ive never complained about trailers giving away too much but if they managed to show nothing of the other side of the wormhole until the movie actually came out I would be incredibly impressed. Im sure Nolan has plenty of surprises for us regardless.

Jon Odishaw on Jul 30, 2014


Yea, I really hate this. The first teaser had no substance, so nothing got me excited about it, and now this trailer shows so much it diminishes so much of my enthusiasm. I wish trailers would just give you an idea of the tone and basic plot instead of trying so hard to suck you in with the money shots. Also, did anyone else get the feeling that Anne Hathaway is his daughter? I feel like a lot of the shots between them point towards that and that would be such a piss off if it turned out to be true. Hopefully it is just a big mislead or I'm completely wrong.

Doug on Jul 30, 2014


No, Jessica Chastain is his daughter. Also, I don't think this trailer gave much away at all. Half of it was mundane stuff that we've already seen. I still have no idea what this move is actually about.

jim on Jul 30, 2014


That's what I'm hoping. I still think they should have waited and not shown us any alien worlds

Jon Odishaw on Jul 30, 2014


I've been back and forth on the fence for this film, the idea itself seems really interesting, but the trailers haven't drawn me in until now. The scenes beyond the wormhole did show more, which is what I think i needed to see to get drawn into the film. I'm expecting this film to have lots of surprising moments.

Justin R on Jul 30, 2014


I can't see anything!

Armitall on Jul 30, 2014


OK! Just managed to watch it! Truly epic, however this will be it for me. I'm not seeing anything else till I see it all. Major Tom, out!

Armitall on Jul 30, 2014


me to, I am getting to excited and than most of the time it will disappoint me because I am to hyped by the trailers. out!

Avi on Jul 31, 2014


I refuse to watch because I want to go in blind but just having Nolan and McConaughey and it being about space. I"M SOLD.

IamSlave on Jul 30, 2014


It seems like something is missing, and I believe it's the absence of Wally Pfister. It just doesn't look like a Nolan movie without Pfister's signature look. Hoytema seems to have sucked all the color out. We'll see.

Cody on Jul 30, 2014


have you thought of the possibility this is the LOOK they were going for together?

digifruitella on Jul 30, 2014


Yes, I have thought of that. All of the Pfister/Nolan films of the past have a similar visual aesthetic that is just not present here. That's all I mean. Just the familiarality that I developed as a fan of Nolan has changed. Maybe I'm just not as in awe of the shots here as I was with Pfister's. Like I said, we'll see.

Cody on Jul 31, 2014


You're assuming that Nolan didn't specifically ask for this look.

Buzzsaw on Jul 30, 2014


Yes, I have thought of that. All of the Pfister/Nolan films of the past have a similar visual aesthetic that is just not present here. That's all I mean. Just the familiarality that I developed as a fan of Nolan has changed. Maybe I'm just not as in awe of the shots here as I was with Pfister's. Like I said, we'll see.

Cody on Jul 30, 2014


I hope that Interstellar lives up the expectations set by the trailers and by this quotation from Carl Sagan. "We are the local embodiment of a Cosmos grown to selfawareness. We have begun to contemplate our origins: starstuff pondering the stars; organized assemblages of ten billion billion billion atoms considering the evolution of atoms; tracing the long journey by which, here at least, consciousness arose. Our loyalties are to the species and the planet. We speak for Earth. Our obligation to survive is owed not just to ourselves but also to that Cosmos, ancient and vast, from which we spring." - Carl Sagan

dandassow on Jul 30, 2014


Sagan should've been a poet...:)

Scopedog on Jul 30, 2014


Gotta agree with you on that....I'd say you're right.

Scopedog on Aug 1, 2014


This is the reason we go to movies nowadays, for masterpieces like this! There is not a doubt in my mind that this will be as epic as Nolan's previous films. The first trailer sold me, the second and third just grew my interest millionfold.

Urban James Kirk on Jul 30, 2014


So cool. Nolan looks like he has done it again. Very, very excited to see this feature film!

DAVIDPD on Jul 30, 2014


Nolan makes movies that need to be seen on the big screen - and for that I'm grateful. They're well crafted stories, visually exciting - from Memento to the Prestige to Insomnia to TDK. Inception was his masterpiece, if Interstellar delivers, it will cement Nolan as one of the all time greats. He currently is the best director working today.

Ali Hasan on Jul 30, 2014



RAW_D on Jul 30, 2014


Pretty up for this, hadn't had much of an interest in it, not the biggest Nolan nut, but it does look pretty incredible.

Carpola on Jul 30, 2014


Highly, immensely, undoubtedly intrigued. The trailer showed just enough to not give everything away, but just enough to know this film will be great. Props to the team who cut the trailer. Now, no more trailers please.

Quanah on Jul 30, 2014


Looks a bit crap. This Nolan is not a particularly talented bloke.

Steven Burgas on Jul 30, 2014


There was a time when trolling was an art form. Now any useless idiot can do it.

Buzzsaw on Jul 30, 2014


Not trolling - he's a horrible writer, his films are logically inconsistent, filled with plot holes and continuity errors, and he commits the cardinal sin of telling instead of showing. He's second rate, with a cadre of hardcore fanboys, and this film looks as daft as all his other commercial pap.

Steven Burgas on Jul 31, 2014


I think Nolan is slightly overrated, but youre being a twat.

Jon Odishaw on Jul 31, 2014


So a borderline cinematic god as opposed to a full on one?

Buzzsaw on Jul 31, 2014


Only a god to morons and idiots. You appear to be both.

Pugiron on Jul 31, 2014


Says the idiot who doesn't know what a wormhole is....hahahah

Buzzsaw on Aug 1, 2014


Good thing he didn't really write this one alone then. Kid Thorne, Linda Obst, Jon Nolan and Chris Nolan have all had a hand in this.

denverchris on Jul 31, 2014


Telling instead of showing? Have you seen the ending to Inception?

Tyler Rowland on Jul 31, 2014


What ending?

Pugiron on Jul 31, 2014


lol have you seen everything before the ending to Inception? It's exposition after exposition

Terry Craig on Aug 1, 2014


Of course I seen it. Dumbest movie ever. It totally ripped off Flatliners

Steven Burgas on Aug 1, 2014


And what filmmaker would you prefer idiot?

Jake Azeris on Jul 31, 2014


Well, Spielberg was originally attached to this project, and he actually has the chops to pull it off, you butthurt little slit.

Steven Burgas on Jul 31, 2014


And exactly what chops are those? I get it now, youre some butthurt Spielberg fan who just praises everything he does. Get a life shit for brains.

Jake Azeris on Aug 4, 2014



Steven Burgas on Aug 5, 2014


I needed telling with Inception 🙂

Peter McCormack on Aug 1, 2014


what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Buzzsaw on Aug 1, 2014


&_& At least I managed to post my own thoughts and didn't simply regurgitate dialogue from a lame Adam Sandler movie.

Steven Burgas on Aug 1, 2014


And your thoughts are retarded at best. It's hilarious that you're actually proud enough to take ownership of them. You are without a doubt the dumbest troll I have ever seen on this website. Your original post had ZERO votes. Mine had 14. Think about that. The irony is that Adam Sandler quote PERFECTLY SUMS YOU UP! HAHAHHA. You sir are literally too stupid to insult. Now go troll some other website.

Buzzsaw on Aug 1, 2014


I am the smartest person here. No one with an IQ over 4 has ever liked a Nolan movie. You only wish you were as smart as me. Michael Bay is better than him by a trillion miles.

Steven Burgas on Aug 1, 2014


Not trolling, and so very glad I'm not a gullible little fanboy who worships at the altar of Chris Nolan's tiny shriveled little cock. Suck away!

Steven Burgas on Aug 1, 2014


This looks incredible...this looks like classic Nolan. Nolan is undoubtedly the best directory currently working. His brilliance appears to have no bounds.

Buzzsaw on Jul 30, 2014


The space scenes look great, but I'm not that excited by the Earth ones. And as much as I love Michael Caine... again? Inception is still my favorite of Nolan's movies.

cobrazombie on Jul 31, 2014

91 I supposed to be excited? I don't sense a gripping plot here...

Have Hope on Jul 31, 2014


0/10 Where are the clever trolls hiding?

Buzzsaw on Jul 31, 2014


then youre an idiot

Jake Azeris on Jul 31, 2014


OMG - this looks great. And teases just a bit more plot without giving away anything for certain.

VAharleywitch on Jul 31, 2014


Here's a link to the song used in the trailer -

Ben Nesvig on Jul 31, 2014


I love how the synopsis for the movie doesnt reveal a lot as to why theyre going into space. Obviously Earth is dying. But it leaves a lot for the viewer of the trailer to conclude on their own. Some people are obviously incapable of independent thought, too reliant on someone else telling them what they should wear, or watch, or believe, or understand, or what something means. Its really sad actually.

JointhePredacons on Jul 31, 2014


So...could you enlighten us then?

Guest on Aug 4, 2014


If someone could invent a faster-than-light drive powered by plot holes, Christopher Nolan could take us to the stars!

Pugiron on Jul 31, 2014


It's called a Wormhole. You might want to Google it so you sound ignorant in one less subject.

Buzzsaw on Aug 1, 2014


You should probably read about Kip Thorne, know this movie is actually based on his theories and stories, and then come back to burn. Again.

el copi on Aug 1, 2014


I know they're probably keeping the best footage as a surprise for when I actually see the film, but I'm still confused of what this movie is about. Of course with Christopher Nolan, there's more to the story than the trailer is letting on. But it still makes me hesitate to see it, because I don't know what I'm spending my money on :/

RobotProphet on Jul 31, 2014


It's kind of obvious...the Earth is dying...they are trying to find a new world. Not the sharpest pencil are you?

Buzzsaw on Aug 1, 2014


This movie is for idiots. You only wish you were as smart as me to see through this formulaic nonsense for fat lazy people.

Steven Burgas on Aug 1, 2014


Thanks Ben!

Jeff Prioleau on Aug 4, 2014


this will be awesome!!! and yeah if there is a statue of liberty in it I don't mind! 🙂
