Rejoice OOU.netties! The trailer to Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated project Interstellar has finally been released! It will be premiered before The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. But guess what? You don’t have to go out and spend your money, if all you want to do is see the trailer! We here at OneofUs.net have connections… internet connections. So just because we love you guys so much, we have the teaser for you down below.
Teaser is right. This trailer gives us almost nothing except stock footage, a voice over, and a shot of Matthew McConaughy after watching Fool’s Gold. The only thing this trailer really gives us is the tone. Even then, I can’t tell what Nolan is trying to accomplish. I’m not sure if it’s going to be: (A) dark and moody(as per usual), (B) inspirational and wonderful, or (C) all of the above. From the sounds of it, it seems to be relying a lot on the human ambition of trying to venture in to the great beyond, to boldly go where no man has gone before. My IMDB-fu skills tell me that nothing about the plot has been revealed other than this sentence:
“A group of explorers 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.”
Looks like our pal Chris is playing this one pretty close to the chest. If I can place my bets, maybe Matthew McConaughey’s character is some sort of space researcher that discovers this wormhole. He wants to go out and explore it, but the researchers are telling him that it’s too dangerous and no way in HELL are they going to do that. He becomes obsessed with this project, so much so that it destroys him and his familial relationships. Now with nothing, he was some how able to convince his superiors to allow him and a small crew to explore this wormhole. Malfunctions happen, and they land on a mysterious planet inhabited by intellectual apes. It so happens that they have entered a parallel universe, and the planet is actually earth. They have entered… the Twilight Zone.
So fellow OOUies, what are your guesses on what the plot is? Best answer gets a virtual high-five! Whatever your ideas are, comment below, and let One of Us know!
