Director Christopher Nolan is very secretive, but the new Interstellar full trailer should be enough to keep his fans happy for a long while.
The full trailer to Nolan’s space saga marks the return of the Dark Knight director to the big screen, after a two-year hiatus, following the 2012 Batman flick.
Not much is known about the plot so far, as Nolan keeps the details very guarded and reportedly makes anyone reading the script to do so in his office to avoid leaks of any kind.
A teaser trailer for Interstellar was released in late March to the delight of fans who are eagerly anticipating the Nolan blockbuster, but it gave very little insight into what the movie is all about, except that it is about time traveling.
The new trailer for the film shows Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey, a father of two kids and scientist who explores space travel and alternate universes after discovering a wormhole.
During a presser in Las Vegas in March, Nolan gave out more details about Interstellar — which was originally slated to be directed by Steven Spielberg — sharing that he wants his movie to remind people of his favorite space childhood films such as Star Wars and 2001: A Space Odyssey.
To accomplish that goal, Nolan kept world-renowned scientist Kip Thorne — who will work on bringing credibility to Interstellar’s different components — as an executive producer.
In the movie, the world is at its limit, as far as growing crops because of the changing weather and scientist must find a different place to settle in.
A piece in Guardianlv.com discusses how Christopher Nolan went about creating realistic settings for Interstellar:
“They built the spaceship’s interior, as well as the outside environments because he wanted to use as little CGI as possible. (Nolan) also shot the movie in as many real places as he could, not settling for green screens. The quality of the film, the director said, will be much higher if the locations are real, explaining the characters will visit fanciful environments and felt actual location enhanced their performances.”
Nolan also shared that his crew strived to shoot Interstellar as they would a documentary and it was shot mostly on IMAX, even though it won’t be shown in 3D, which the director isn’t sold on.
However, the score — composed by Hans Zimmer (Inception, Man Of Steel) — was created to maximize its potential in IMAX theaters, where the movie will be shown.
