In case you missed it while you were necroing your thread, their will be a new trailer that will be shown at Godzilla screenings.
Thanks. It'll probably leak on YouTube before then.

Plus, it is being partially filmed in IMAX film(the proper 70/15 mm stuff) like the Dark Knight, etc. It should look great on an IMAX screen.

It's been reported a trailer for the film will be attached to prints of Godzilla which is out this week so we should get to see it quite soon.

Anyone have any thoughts on this trailer? Or do I detect from the lack of responses that we've all had enough of Nolan? You see I knew it that TDKR was a turkey and that he's become a hack

Of course I'm jking

I saw the trailer when it was attached to Godzilla this week. When it first comes up and you see McConaughey up on screen no one took any notice. Everyone was chatting away with their friends or were messing on their phones and then when the sign comes up saying 'From Christopher Nolan' everyone stopped what they were doing and began watching the trailer in silence. When it finished i think everyone was simply intrigued and didn't know what to make of it.

Personally what i took from it is that it seems to be very Steven Spielberg-ian. In the sense that it looks like a very family-orientated/family-focused kind of film. A lot more personal and a big departure for Nolan compared to his previous films. There were no 'action' shots in the trailer and you see very short glimpses of Caine, Hathaway and Chastain.

It's not been posted in this thead but this is the teaser trailer that was released a few months back before the proper trailer appeared this week - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=827FNDpQWrQ

I've heard pretty mixed things about Godzilla so I'm on the fence over seeing it in the cinema or just wait until it comes out on Blu-ray.

But yeah, the Spielberg influences are clear. The Nolan brothers seems to have kept those sentimental elements intact (Jonathan of course originally had Spielberg in mind when writing his first screenplay for Interstellar in 2007). Kubrick's 2001 is the other big influence too as is Contact.

The trailer got me excited - I'm wondering whether this'll fall into the hard sci-fi genre, as you could see they've gone out of their way to include a gravitational lensing effect when the (realistic looking) ship enters the wormhole.

Just depends whether they're exploring on the other end or end up running from a race of alien brain suckers!

I'm kind of getting an SG:U vibe for the big screen, which would be no bad thing in terms of atmospherics. It's one of the few TV series which have capture the essence of how lonely a place the Universe is.

I'd recommend people read Tau Zero if they're interested in this sort of thing.

Hmm, sort of disappointing, but also understandable.

Comparing it to the early version of the script that's out there, what this trailer shows us is barely the first third. Very much an introduction to the premise.

Seems portentous enough though.

Reminds me of the early MoS trailer; that heavily played up the human emotional aspect, giving the impression the film might have a bit more depth to it than the average brainless action packed FX extravaganza...

Yes...except Man of Steel is directed by a person who is a great visualist but doesn't understand character and story.

Sure, it still doesn't stop me wondering if the final product will end up being a very different beast from whats being suggested in that trailer. Time will tell.

New trailer's out.

Bit meh to begin with, but the rather splendid space travel and ice planet footage made up for it.

I'm seeing Guardians of the Galaxy in IMAX tomorrow - hopefully we will see this trailer in IMAX before the film?

Not to be pedantic or anything but he is half American and has been working within the US film industry for well over a decade. Not to mention this film is about an American voyage.

Anyway there's nothing wrong with being sentimental if you know how to understand emotion on screen. Spielberg's made a largely successful career out of sentimental storytelling.

I'll be lying however if I said Mackenzie Foy's presence in these trailers hasn't annoyed me somewhat

He certainly grew up here. He has an English accent.

Not getting the usual WOW factor from this. Nolan has not put a foot wrong so far so I am hopeful that the movie will live up to expectations, but it does seem somewhat portentious and turgid, and possible overly sentimental.

I was also struck with the similarities with 'When Worlds Collide', another film about man looking for another planet to inhabit due to the imminent destruction of earth.

Got some vibes of 'Contact' too, (which McConaughey also starred in and I liked), but my biggest fear is that it looks like it desperately wants to be a successor to 2001 : A Space Odyssey.

But...it's just a trailer so may not accurately reflect the movie itself. I will wait and see. No choice I guess...

The other poster was correct he's British-American, apparently he split his childhood between England and the US. But I get the feeling he prefers it here, he's shot several of his films here, but not Interstellar.

I can imagine the mood reflects the film well enough, but doubtless there's still a lot kept up its sleeve both plot-wise and visually.

Yep, though he mainly lives in the US now (and technically has a mid-atlantic accent). Though I'm not sure if he has a preference between shooting in the US or elsewhere, usually it's up to the studios who have the final say on locations in order to exploit local tax breaks. It's surprising how many Hollywood films are now shot outside of LA/North America even. JJ Abrams himself was a bit pissed off after learning that he'd have to move to London for a few years to work on Star Wars 7.

Nice tagline.

The hype for this is seriously underwhelming and it's out in a couple of months. Could be worrying.

Hype is a PR manufactured product. After the hype created for Inception I'm not surprised they've toned it down a few notches for this.
