The Trailer for INTERSTELLAR Inspires, Moves And Excites

Christopher Nolan's next film gets an actually awesome trailer.

The first trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar is upon us, and it features almost no footage from the film. It does feature a palpable sense of aspiration and hope, and it comes out so strongly for the necessity of the space program that I found myself completely moved. I may have had a bigger emotional reaction to this teaser trailer than I have had to any of Nolan's feature length movies. 

There's a lot of interesting stuff in here - the teaser draws a direct comparison between the film's future ecological disaster and the Dust Bowl, for instance - and there's a lot of moments that remind older people (like me, I guess) how amazing it was to live during a time when humanity's forward progression was continuing out of our atmosphere. It's fitting that this trailer arrives online the day that China has landed a rover on the Moon, the first man-made object to arrive there in 37 years.
