When was the last time we had a really top notch near-future science-fiction flick? Children of Men? That was a while back. After watching the trailer to Christopher Nolan’s latest project Interstellar, my hype levels are stratospheric. Nolan’s (in my opinion) hit a duff note with The Dark Knight Rises; this looks like it could be a spectacular return to form.
Interstellar is a story about space travel, but it’s also a film about resources. It looks as though it’s set in a near future where humanity is struggling to feed themselves and the survival of the human race is dependent on some form of space colonisation. Matthew Mcconaughey stars in the leading role as an ex-engineer/pilot willing to take the risk of interstellar flight in order to save his family.
Just the trailer gave me the ol’ goosebumps.
