At First Glance: “Interstellar”

Today, the first trailer for Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures new film, “Interstellar” arrived!

The film is set for a November 7 release date, which will give fans a chance to get incredibly excited and build the hype!

The science fiction mystery film is directed by Christopher Nolan (“Inception”, “The Dark Knight Trilogy”) and stars Matthew McConaughey (“Dallas Buyers Club”, “True Detective”), Anne Hathaway (“Les Miserables”, “The Dark Knight Rises”), Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty”, “The Help”), and Michael Caine (“Now You See Me”, “The Dark Knight Rises”) and many more to make up one incredible cast.

One thing that makes this film worth getting so excited about, and eventually seeing, is the scores composer. Hans Zimmer , who conducted the score for “The Dark Knight” and “Inception”, is returning to work with Nolan once more. If you’ve heard the score for just those two films you can certainly expect some larger than life music that fits the film so well. For me, it isn’t just those two films that has me excited, but if you watch the films, “The Ring” and “The Ring Two”, you know Zimmer is fully capable of creating a score that has mood, thrills, and elevates the story, and thus the film, even higher.

The film itself just looks big. Not just “summer blockbuster” big, but overall story. The drama, sci-fi elements, and accompanying special effects are probably going to whisk audiences away to another well crafted world. Coming back down from the thrill of this film should be interesting.

Maybe I’m heaping a lot of expectation upon Nolan and his newest film, but I don’t think it’s without merit. Setting aside “The Dark Knight Trilogy” and “Inception”, back in the early 2000s, he gave us “Insomnia” and “Memento”; which he also wrote.

The cast itself, and if you go to the IMDB page for the film, shows how much talent you will be getting. Sure, not all those listed will have the same screen time or incredible significance to the story, but you can take comfort from the fact that they know what they’re doing.

Lastly, and this is just from a few scenes in the trailer itself, the cinematography. I was impressed by how the camera moved around and gave some fun shots. These, no doubt, will ultimately make for a fast paced and exhilarating movie!

Is it November yet?
