Interstellar Official Teaser Trailer

  1. Saurabh Kadam 9 years ago

    You beat me to it. Easily my most anticipated movie of 2014. The very definition of a teaser trailer. Liked the title card ‘ From Christopher Nolan’ rather than ‘ From the director of TDK/ Inception’ and ‘One Year From Now’. Having read the script I can say this is radical departure for Nolan from his previous ventures and the scale is just MASSIVE. Zimmer’s score looks low key and emotional and McConaughey’s voice over is inspiring. But only the next trailer can give us the idea of the visuals. Hoyte van Hoytema’s previous work proves that he can fill the gap left by Wally Pfister’s departure.

    Looks interesting. McConaughey’s voice over and the dialogues/speech about greatest achievements is good.

    What a GREAT GREAT teaser… It tells so much yet doesn´t say one word and we crave for more… #Respect

    Liked it good teaser.

  5. Anjanpur685Miles 9 years ago

    Saw this one only because Tulmul said its great.

    Didnt understand what the fuss about greatness was all about here. Looked like a regular HW sci-fi movie teaser.

  6. Saurabh 9 years ago

    The greatness (for me atleast) is it’s effectiveness. It isn’t a regular ‘teaser’ trailer where you are shown almost 50% of the movie which is prevalent these days. This teaser is just meant to tell people that a new movie from Christopher Nolan is coming next year and it might feature crops and rockets and Matthew McConaughey (no idea whether he’ll go shirtless). For those who are wondering what this film is about, just pay attention to the sequence of the stock video.

    Excellent Interview by Matthew McConaughey

    Matthew McConaughey on ‘Dallas Buyers Club’: ‘Damn Right This Is a Great Time in My Career’

    ‘“For the first time in my career, I lost money! No joke!” the actor says.

    Then again, McConaughey has reason to smile; his choice to reject big mainstream movies, ultimately in favor of gritty roles in independent films, represents a dramatic career shift –— and has garnered widespread recognition — for the 44-year-old Texas-born father of three.

    His performance in “Dallas Buyers Club,” as the real-life Ron Woodroof, a homophobic good ol’ boy who became a health crusader after being diagnosed with AIDS, smuggling life-saving drugs into the U.S. for himself and fellow patients, has earned him top honors at the Golden Globes and SAG awards, and brought him his first Oscar nomination.

    It is one of several complicated characters that McConaughey has boldly portrayed recently — from the hard-edged drifter in “Mud” and the thong-wearing stripper in “Magic Mike” to the lonely hitman in “Killer Joe.”

    And now he’s taken that newfound acting potency to the smallscreen as a cop dealing with personal demons in the new HBO series “True Detective.” Hollywood is already buzzing that before the year is out, McConaughey could walk away with an Oscar and an Emmy sitting side by side on his mantle.

    This sudden acclaim comes after more than a decade in which the actor’s talents had not been taken as seriously as his good looks. His biggest hits came in the form of romantic comedies, beginning with 2001’s “The Wedding Planner” and two years later in “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.” Christine Peters, who produced “How to Lose a Guy,” says McConaughey was the obvious choice to headline that film. “We needed sexy, hot, charming, intelligent — really, how many guys are there out there like that?” she notes. “He’s a true Southern gentleman.”

    McConaughey has great affection for the romantic-comedy genre, noting that it’s difficult to keep such roles looking breezy. “It is a hard challenge to make it work, to tell a story you’ve seen time and time again that you know what the ending is going to be,” he says. “You have to stay light, you have to keep it moving. You drop anchor in one of those movies, and the whole thing sinks.”

    One actor who has been with McConaughey on his career-winding journey is Woody Harrelson; the pair played brothers in the 1999 comedy “EdTV” and now co-star on “True Detective.” Harrelson recalls first meeting McConaughey at a CAA event.

    “He had recently come out in ‘A Time to Kill’ and was the next big thing,” Harrelson recalls. “He was very nice. And funny. I asked if he wanted a shot of tequila. He declined, as it was noon and he had a lot to do that day.

    “Then he relented.”

    While McConaughey didn’t set out to pursue darker, smaller projects, he says he did make a conscious choice a few years ago to take a break. “I went to my wife and my agent and said, ‘I’m going to stop for a bit,’” he recalls. “I’m going to sit back in the shadows. I’m getting into my 40s, a great time for a man. I’ve started a family. I want to take time to laugh and love and enjoy these adventures.”

    Time and again, he credits his wife, Brazilian model Camila Alves McConaughey, for her support. The two, who met in 2006, have three young children together, and McConaughey says she is a partner in every sense. “We’re a team. I know it’s not easy on her, though she does it with aplomb,” he says.

    McConaughey explains he had no timetable for his self-imposed hiatus. “I just knew I was going to hold out for a while and things would dry out. I didn’t know how long they would dry out for, and that was scary,” he admits. “I would get sent things and the paychecks were great, and I would say no.

    “Then, they quit sending them altogether,” he says. “And then … nothing. So the message got through.”

    But dropping out of sight may have been the best thing for his career. “All of a sudden, I became a good idea for people like William Friedkin and Steven Soderbergh — people who hadn’t called before, who maybe wouldn’t have seen me as a good idea three years before.”

    It was Friedkin who pursued him for “Killer Joe,” the story of a brutal contract killer who falls for the sister of a man who hires him. McConaughey initially balked at the script, based on the play by Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts. “I wanted to take a shower with a steel brush after I first read it,” he recalls. “Then, a woman I worked with told me how funny she found it. So I went back and re-read it, and realized the potential.” He was also drawn to the offbeat romance in the film. “I like an odd love story,” he says. “I cried when they took King Kong away from Jessica Lange. I was like, ‘They can make it, man!’ ”

    He followed “Killer Joe” with supporting roles in other indies — “Bernie” (2011) and “The Paperboy” (2012) to go along with “Mud” and “Magic Mike,” the latter of which won him an Independent Spirit Award for supporting actor. “It wasn’t a conscious choice to go indie,” he notes. “It was just that my head was down, looking for great characters. And those are harder to find in the big movies. And when you have a role like that in a studio film, they aren’t coming to me. They’re talking to George Clooney.”

    McConaughey’s chance to realize his dream project came second-hand. Woodroof’s story had been floating around Hollywood for 20 years, with actors from Brad Pitt to Harrelson attached at times. Producer Robbie Brenner, who had been involved with the film since 2001, says that when the rights reverted back to writers Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack in 2009, “They gifted the script to me and said, ‘Go with God; make the movie.’ ”

    The first person to whom Brenner gave the screenplay was McConaughey.

    “I said, ‘He’s Ron Woodroof,’” recounts Brenner. This was before the actor’s surge of indie work, but Brenner says she was a longtime fan. “He’s so great in ‘A Time to Kill,’ ” the producer says of McConaughey’s first leading role, in the 1996 film based on John Grisham’s bestselling novel. “Yes, he chose to take a lighter path after that, but I think there’s something very deep behind the eyes, and he’s incredibly charismatic and likable. And, of course, he’s from Texas.”

    But when director Jean-Marc Vallee was approached about helming the movie, he needed some convincing. “I read the script and said, ‘I’m sorry, I don’t see Matthew McConaughey. This is so not him,’ ” Vallee concedes. “Robbie said to give him a chance and just meet with him.” The two had a three-hour sit-down in a hotel in New York, where Vallee was instantly impressed. “The way he spoke about the character, I could tell this was a man who wanted to go somewhere else in his life and professional career, and accept new challenges. It was a leap of faith, but I said OK.”

    Vallee’s biggest concern was that the “handsome, 185-pound man” he saw would be able to physically transform. Says McConaughey, “He kept saying, ‘How will you lose the weight? Look at you!’ I just said, ‘Don’t worry about me, I’ll get there. I haven’t thought out how. Just trust me, I will.’  ”

    Though many people assume that he just starved himself to shed more than 40 pounds for the role, McConaughey says the key was time. “I ate well,” he explains. “Just very small amounts. Five ounces of fish, twice a day. Cup of vegetables, twice a day. The secret is, I gave myself four months.” During that time, he also immersed himself in Woodroof’s past, meeting with his family and studying his diaries, which were given to him by Woodroof’s sister and daughter. “It was such an insight into this boyish mind, these small town wanderings,” McConaughey reveals. “It was my secret weapon.”

    Still, the weight loss was jarring, even to those who knew him. While prepping for “Dallas,” McConaughey shot a small but scene-stealing part in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” as a coked up mentor to Leonardo DiCaprio’s stockbroker. “I showed up and had already lost like 25 pounds,” he laughs. “Marty was like, ‘Stop, I need you to stop!’ ”

    Brenner recalls showing up to the first day on the set of “Dallas Buyers Club,” having not seen McConaughey in some time. She was getting out of her car when she spotted the actor walking by. “I was scared when I saw him,” she admits. “I couldn’t believe it was Matthew. And it’s not just the weight. It was the physicality and the look, and how he truly became Ron. It made me shudder.”

    The film began shooting in November 2012 for a breakneck 28 days. Because of time constraints, it shot in natural light and actors were afforded few takes. But the cast seemed to thrive under the conditions. Says Vallee: “I quickly realized this guy (McConaughey) is on a mission to have fun and show the world how much he loves to be an actor and be at the service of his art form. He went crazy. I had to trust him, because he took me out of my comfort zone like no one else. He was constantly moving, giving these amazing takes — shots that would go on for more than a minute.”

    Asked if it was a difficult shoot, McConaughey says, “I’ve got a saying: When faced with the inevitable, get relative. The inevitable was, I’m going to do this. I’ve got support from my family that insulates me. I surrounded myself with everything I needed to go on this adventure. And the focus was exciting. I said to myself, ‘We’re taking a trip, McConaughey. This is a story you want to tell. Those adventures you talk about — you’re on one now.’ ”

    The thesp says his weight loss might have been harder on those around him than on himself. “I went from being cranky to hyper aware,” he says. “That clarity is hard on other people, because my bullshit meter was zero. I was like, ‘Speak up. No adjectives or adverbs. Just nouns and verbs. Speak!’”

    Perhaps the highest praise comes from Harrelson. “There was no one else to play that part,” he notes. “His performance was a true wealth of brilliant, subtle choices. It’s almost unfortunate so much focus has been on him losing weight. This is an actor completely inside the character. He couldn’t make a wrong turn he was so authentic.”

    Born in Uvalde, Texas, McConaughey, who was raised middle-class along with his two older brothers in Longview, didn’t grow up expecting to be an actor. His mother was a schoolteacher and his father owned an oil pipe supply business. Matthew had planned on becoming a lawyer — a profession he would end up playing out onscreen in the films “A Time to Kill,” “Amistad” and “The Lincoln Lawyer.”

    In his sophomore year of college, mere days before he had to pick a major, he discovered Og Mandino’s philosophical tome “The Greatest Salesman in the World.” After devouring the book, a 10-step reaffirmation program, he realized he wanted to spend his life telling stories. He called his father to tell him he wanted to go to film school. After a long pause, his dad simply said, “Well, don’t half-ass it.”

    McConaughey enrolled at the U. of Texas at Austin, thinking he’d become a filmmaker. But he kept getting acting jobs; when he met “Dazed and Confused” casting director Don Phillips, he asked about working as a production assistant on the pic. He ended up being cast in the tiny but iconic role of David Wooderson.

    He soon moved to Los Angeles to take a job as a PA on a Coen Brothers film. The movie got pushed, and while McConaughey was crashing on Phillips’ couch, he was sent out for the 1995 drama “Boys on the Side.” That film and the 1994 family fantasy baseball pic “Angels in the Outfield” were his first Hollywood auditions.

    He became an “overnight” star when director Joel Schumacher hired him for the lead role in “A Time to Kill.” The little-known actor found himself heading a cast that included Sandra Bullock and Kevin Spacey. He got through the media maelstrom by concentrating on the work, but admits he wasn’t prepared for the onslaught of attention. “My life was turned upside down,” he says. “I went from being told ‘no’ 100 times a day to being told I could have anything I wanted.”

    Knowing that fame could be fleeting, he took supporting roles with great directors, including Steven Spielberg (“Amistad”) and Robert Zemeckis (“Contact”).

    McConaughey is continuing to work on challenging roles with the best directors in the business. He’s just signed on to play a suicidal man who discovers a different path in director Gus Van Sant’s “Sea of Trees.” And he will be seen this November in Christopher Nolan’s top-secret sci-fi epic “Interstellar.” While he can’t divulge anything about the plot, McConaughey does say: “Here’s what I can tell you,” before slipping into the third person. “It’s the most ambitious thing he’s ever done. And he’s done some ambitious stuff.”

    McConaughey had run into Nolan over the years, but it was at an event about two years ago he says the director first praised his work. “He came up to me and said, ‘“Mud.” I love that movie,’ ” McConaughey recalls. He was later asked to fly to Los Angeles to meet with Nolan. “I sat down with him for about 2½ hours at his house,” he recalls. “Not one word came up about “Interstellar.” I walked out not sure what to think. I mean, he’s not a guy who takes general meetings.” Clearly Nolan liked what he saw; McConaughey was offered the role.

    Nolan may be tight-lipped about the film’s plot, but he has nothing but praise for the pic’s star. “Matthew works from the inside out,” he says. “He approaches a character from a deep human understanding, refusing to take shortcuts to an emotional connection with the audience — all while never losing sight of the demands of the overall narrative.”

    “Interstellar” might break McConaughey’s streak of independent films, but he does point out that Nolan, who began his career with small pics like “Following” and “Memento,” still brings an indie sensibility to big-budget movies. “There’s no fucking around on set,” the actor notes. “He’s a great problem solver. In that way, he’s very indie. Here’s a guy who could have whatever budget he wants — and we finished shooting early.”

    For now, McConaughey is simply enjoying his current, most personal role.

    “For the next two months, I’m playing the character of Matthew McConaughey, an actor proud of the films he’s been in,” he says, before again opting for the third person. “And if any of those films or his performances are in awards shows, he’s going to go, heart high and head up, and look them all in the eye and say, ‘Damn right this is a great time in my career.’ That’s the role I’m in now. I’ve got a lot to be thankful for.”

    Watch his SAG award winning speech. Inspiration McConaughey style. Love this guy. McConaughey got the role because of Mud. That was my guess as well having read the script. It’s a very emotional role and a personal one about a father and his relationship with his children amidst black holes, wormholes, etc. Next trailer(full length) will come in late April/ early May. With Interstellar, I think we are in for a new, special and an inspiring journey about exploration and survival.

      That was a really cool speech . I’m loving this guy . He is doing some excellent work and he sounds great off screen too . Looking forward to his upcoming movies .

    • sputnik 9 years ago

      Thanks for the SAG Awards speech. He sounded real passionate about his work. I myself had criticized him for doing similar roles some time back but what a turn around it has been for him. He has completely reinvented himself with movies like Dallas Buyers Club, The Paperboy and The Lincoln Lawyer. Have not seen Mud and Killer Joe yet.

      For those interested here is the video.

      “McConaughey is continuing to work on challenging roles with the best directors in the business. He’s just signed on to play a suicidal man who discovers a different path in director Gus Van Sant’s “Sea of Trees.”’

      Gus Van Sant’s Sea of Trees sounds interesting too.

  17. Saurabh 9 years ago

    He’s reinvented himself with small independent productions. That’s where real stories lie. With Interstellar even though its a massive machinery, when shooting, its just Nolan, his DP and the actors much like an small scale independent movie. And very less green screen. That’s what actors like Hardy, Bale, McConaughey find appealing about him. There’s no ego, no shouting, no studio interference on his set. Just inspiration. Unfortunately, Irrfan Khan missed out an opportunity to work with him due to scheduling conflicts.

    Christopher Nolan Talks Wormholes, 3D & Pushing IMAX To The Limit With ‘Interstellar’

    We may have gotten a teaser trailer for “Interstellar” late last year, and the film’s set to come out in just over seven months, but director Christopher Nolan still refuses to give too much away about the movie. He talked with theater owners and exhibitors at a special luncheon in his honor at this year’s Cinemacon in Las Vegas. Naturally, many questions were asked about the film, and while Nolan did talk in detail about the performances of Michael Caine and Matthew McConaughey, he would otherwise only reveal tidbits about the film here and there.

    First, as far as the film’s plot is concerned, Nolan was only willing to confirm that it was “about wormhole travel to other places you couldn’t reach through travel through space.” He also said that the tone of “Interstellar” will be very different from the tone of his previous movies. Theoretical physicist Kip Thorne has been heavily involved in the project as an executive producer and Nolan describes Thorne as “an incredible ally” who’s been involved from the very beginning.

    Nolan also revealed that a large amount of “Interstellar” was shot with IMAX cameras and that he wanted to avoid CGI as much as possible, which meant having the actors perform on real set pieces in practical locations. Says Nolan, “One thing I am happy to talk about briefly; we have spaceship interiors in the film. We wanted to have the real environments the actors were going to be seeing out the windows. We built closed sets of the scale that these ships would be at, we put the reality outside for the actors so we could shoot it like a documentary, like you were really there. I think it paid huge dividends for the actors in terms of performance and being able to understand what we were doing.”

    And it might pay off dividends for audiences too, with Nolan promising a visual and aural experience. “We shot quite a lot of the film in IMAX, more than we had ever done in the past. There will be some really beautiful IMAX film prints that will be in certain key locations. And we are really maximizing the various technical capabilities out there, particularly in the sound mix. We have very ambitious plans in how we are going to take a very big approach as to how we maximize the potential of the existing sound system in theaters,” he said. “Really what we are attempting to do is give audiences a better experience, an immersive experience. We are looking to theater owners to really transport us and give us the best they can in how we get that out to the public. As they say, the projectionist has the final cut. I really think on this film the technical aspect of how this film is presented is really going to be more important than on any film I’ve done before, so that means getting into partnership with the studios and theaters.”

    Returning to performances, while Nolan playfully admitted that Michael Caine is essentially his “lucky charm,” he also explained why he likes putting Caine in all of his movies: “I cast him in films just to have as an example to everyone else, ‘If we all work this hard and this well, it’s all going to be fine.”

    And, further proving that the actor cannot be stopped right now, Nolan had nothing but positive things to say about his lead actor Matthew McConaughey. As he explains it: “I needed someone who is very much an everyman, very much somebody who the audience can experience the story with and be right there beside him experiencing these extraordinary events in the film, seeing them through his eyes, someone very relatable. I think Matthew has those qualities in spades and he’s just a phenomenal charismatic presence in the movie. The performance is shaping up to be something really extraordinary I’m very very excited about.”

    As for Nolan’s comments on 3D, they’re not surprise given his thoughts on the technology in the past. He praised Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” but said, “Just as stadium seating isn’t the best thing for a comedy, 3D isn’t the best for a shared audience.”

    So why was there no footage of “Interstellar” shown at Cinemacon? Well, the film is still in the very early stages of post-production, a process that Nolan said he really enjoys. So, basically, those who have been following the production of the film very closely have not really learned anything new, but if you’re a fan of Christopher Nolan, would you have it any other way? Hopefully we’ll at least get a full theatrical trailer of the film as early as this summer. At least give us that much, Mr. Nolan.


  19. Saurabh 9 years ago

    His thoughts on 3D are exactly the ones why I don’t like the medium. The image is dim and not all scenes appear in 3D in any movie. Even in Gravity or Life of Pi. It’s sad that we don’t have real 15/70 Imax theatres where the image just blows up and fills the entire screen. Nolan is one of the last filmmakers who has refused to embrace digital format as film is still superior no matter how much digital is progressing.

    The tone hearkens back to Star Wars, E.T, Jurassic Park, which aren’t just movies, but cinematic experiences which can be enjoyed by the entire family and universally. He’s probably using the front projection technique (used in 2001: a space odyssey, oblivion) when he said that he wanted the actors to experience what’s outside the windows.

    He also talked about Hans Zimmer’s approach to the music and sound design which unfortunately isn’t available to read online. The only snippet is the official teaser trailer music.

    Someone working on the vfx confirmed that the full trailer will release with Godzilla. This isn’t an official confirmation. But if the marketing follows the same trajectory as his previous blockbusters, then we will get the next trailer by May.

    Nolan kept Interstellar plot secret from Hans Zimmer

    Director Christopher Nolan was so secretive about the plot to his upcoming blockbuster Interstellar that he asked composer Hans Zimmer to write the score without knowing anything about the film.

    The Dark Knight filmmaker is fiercely protective of his stories and usually bans cast and crew from revealing any plot details. He is keeping details of his upcoming space drama, starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, under wraps and he wouldn’t even let his regular collaborator Zimmer see a copy of the script.

    Zimmer tells British GQ, “All I will say is this: before I began, last January, Chris said to me, ‘Hans, I will write one page of text for you. And you will give me just one day. Just write whatever comes to you from this one single page.’

    “It (the page) wasn’t about the film… in a peculiar way, what Chris wrote down that day, and what he wanted from me, had more to do with my story than the plot of the movie. He knows how to get under my skin. That’s the game we play.”

    The celebrated movie composer has previously worked with Nolan on his Dark Knight trilogy and Inception.

    Interstellar is scheduled to hit theaters in November.

  21. Saurabh 9 years ago

    Here’s more:

    It’s sort of how I work with Chris Nolan, we have a good way of working together. If you stare the beast of the unwritten score in the eye it will make you blink.

    For “Interstellar” I wrote the main theme last January. For once I got a foothold on this. I traded off going away for the Christmas holidays to spend a week on “Interstellar” obsessed with it and the ideas. I spent three months in the summer working on it. I’m supposed to have a summer holiday, but I was doing research trying things for “Interstellar.” It won’t leave me alone. It’s his words, his stories, the subject won’t let me sleep at night. That’s why we are secretive, with a purpose. It’s a great joy to let people see something new and unexpected. Isn’t that the job we’re supposed to do, to surprise people? We need to have privacy, to bring the noise down, to be able to focus, to be able to make a small group to create ideas. Privacy is a vital element to hear yourself think and have notes jump into your head.

    It’s very much optimistic in tone and the father and child with the pickup in the middle of the road means this movie will have an emotional backbone. Matthew McConaughey’s Cooper is an ordinary guy who loves his children. But somehow he has to leave them to save their future and by extension, the future of the entire humanity. The poster has a very Close Encounters of the Third Kind vibe to it. Also Cooper is similar in characterization to Richard Dreyfuss’ Roy in that both are ordinary men drawn into extraordinary circumstances.

    Christopher Nolan to Direct WWII Film ‘Dunkirk’ With Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh

    Nolan wrote the screenplay for the war action adventure film.

    Christopher Nolan will direct WWII film Dunkirk, based on his own original screenplay.

    The action adventure film, set during the legendary 1940 evacuation in France, will be led by yet-to-be-cast unknowns but Kenneth Branagh and Tom Hardy are currently in talks to join the ensemble.

    The large scale film will be shot on a combination of IMAX 65mm and 65mm large format film photography, and shooting will begin in May.

    Nolan will also produce the film with his longtime producing partner Emma Thomas.

    Warner Bros. previously announced in September that Nolan’s next film would be released on July 21, 2017, but at the time the studio did not give any other details.

    News began to surface over the weekend via French newspapers that Nolan was planning a WWII movie, and that he and his brother, screenwriter Jonathan Nolan, had been scouting in Dunkirk. The story centers on the 1940 evacuation of more than 300,000 Allied troops who were surrounded by the German army in the French city of Dunkirk.

    “We are thrilled to be continuing our collaboration with Christopher Nolan, a singular filmmaker who has created some of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful films of all time,” said Greg Silverman, president of creative development and worldwide production. “Dunkirk is a gripping and powerful story and we are excited to see Chris, Emma and their cast realize it on the big screen.”

    Branagh directed 2015’s Disney hit Cinderella and is attached to direct and star in Murder on the Orient Express for Fox. He’s repped by WME and Berwick & Kovacik.

    Rylance was more recently seen Steven Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies, receiving a Golden Globe and SAG nomination for his work. He’ll also appear in Spielberg’s The BFG. He’s repped by Hamilton Hodell in the U.K.

    Hardy’s recent credits include The Revenant, which is now in theaters, and Legend. He’s repped by CAA and United Agents in the U.K.

    Nolan, whose previous film was the 2014 space epic Interstellar, is repped by WME.
