I’ve always said there is a certain brilliance in simplicity, and the first trailer for Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar, that couldn’t be more true. The film, based on real life research, finds a group of explorers making use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage. Though the film has a more than excellent collection of star power Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, and more, the trailer only has Matthew McConaughey doing the voiceover telling audiences why the need for exploration above us is so great. Interstellar opens in theaters November 2014.
Edge Of Tomorrow
Tom Cruise is a soldier with absolutely no formal training, thrown into a war which can be best described as a suicide mission. But every time he dies, he is given the opportunity to fight again. That’s because he has the ability to relive the next day again, and again, and again. Emily Blunt plays has he more experienced officer who also shares this power, and together they must fight a highly advanced race of aliens called Mimics.
