Trailer revisits decades of space exploration — and says it isn't over

The first teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan's “Interstellar” finds narrator Matthew McConaughey retracing our decades of space travel — and saying they aren't over.

The film follows travelers using a newly discovered wormhole for an interstellar voyage that surpasses previous limitations on space travel. Besides McConaughey, it stars Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Wes Bentley, Michael Caine, Topher Grace, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, among many others.

With subtle, stirring music behind him, McConaughey recounts our victories over space and time.

“We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible,” he begins. We see Dust Bowl farmers, the breaking of the sound barrier, the moon landing, shuttle launches.

The days of exploration may be lost, he says. Or maybe not.

    We salute you Mr. Nolan. Maybe, just maybe, with your “pioneering” spirit leading the way, producers will return to Los Angeles to make feature films. The crew of Interstellar thanks you for creating 100's if not 1000's of jobs in Hollywood, where for 90 years it was once the movie capitol of planet Earth. We, your grateful crew salute a true “Pioneer.”
