Interstellar (Final Trailer) Review
I haven’t reviewed any trailers for this film because they don’t really show anything to talk about, and they all looked pretty much the same, McConaughey crying, corn fields and Christopher Nolan’s name in massive bold letters. But this trailer looks pretty cool, got plenty to look at without spoiling anything. The visuals and style of the film looks like it is Nolan in space which is what we all wanted from the film, acting looks solid, and we should be seeing plenty of SCI-FI shenanigans. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.
“Well we got this far. Farther than any human in history”
“Not far enough!”
My Score: A-
Release date: 7th November 2014
When a wormhole (which theoretically can connect widely separated regions of spacetime) is discovered, explorers and scientists unite to embark on a voyage through it, transcending the limits of human space travel. Among the travelers is a widowed engineer (McConaughey) who has to decide to leave behind his two children to join the voyage with the goal of saving humanity.
What I liked
#6. Downed Drone
Some question marks with this shot. An educated guess is that the drone was used for surveillance research and got clogged up with dust in the frequent dust storms we see. Clearly the world is suffering from the effects of climate change, which often just makes weather conditions more extreme. If you have a dry climate it gets dryer and if you have a humid climate then it gets more humid to the point where it is uninhabitable.
#5. Brilliant Wormhole Effects
I love the twisted mirror effects used to present a wormhole because scientifically you shouldn’t be able to see a wormhole or a black hole, they don’t emit or reflect light they absorb light. Am sure I’ll get plenty of nerdy visuals to enjoy come November.
#4. A Space Odyssey
This film definitely takes a few queues from classic space science fiction and this shot especially reminds me of 2001 A Space Odyssey. This design seems to be some kind of base which stays in orbit like a space station whilst the centre detachable ship launches to the planetary surface.
#3. Minecraft Helper Thing?!
I originally thought this was some kind of alien thing that attacked them based off of older trailers, but I have heard that this is some kind of experimental robot assistant. Not quite sure how it could possibly move, its way of walking is somewhat defying my understanding of physics. It also looks very CGI which might be on purpose, could be some kind of artificial holograph helper.
Honestly am a little stumped on this one. Any ideas what this thing is or how it works?
#2. Look At Whatever That Thing Is!
No idea what that is, looks cool though. There clearly a planet nearby so it isn’t a supernova or black hole forming, that thing would have been wiped out way beforehand. Maybe a solar flare being deflected by something? Don’t really know about that one. Any ideas?
#1. That Ain’t No Mountain
That be a wave! Haha I love lines like this in movies. I especially loved the shot closer up as the camera just kept panning up and up and up. It’s the kind of obstacle that you just have to sit back and say “Well Shit”.
What I Didn’t Like
Not got much really. Am sure this film will be stellar (ha puns). Oh actually there was a scene where they say “now we will leave are solar system” which is fine but then the other guy says “and our galaxy” got to add a super nerdy comment about that. Interstellar travel is where you travel from one star system to another within the same galaxy. Intergalactic travel is where you travel from one galaxy to another galaxy within the same universe.
Now travelling through a worm hole could theoretically do both that’s not my point. This is with the title, better be Interstellar travel if you’re calling it Interstellar. Watch out Nolan because me and five other nerds are watching.
Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this newest trailer?
