The first clip from Interstellar has arrived and it is a brilliant choice. Instead of showing us some of the astounding visuals of outer space exploration, like we see in the Interstellar trailer, this moment is much more grounded… and personal.
Matthew McConaughey stars and in the below scene, he’s just a father – who has been called to his daughter’s school to discuss one of her issues. The only problem is, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and the Interstellar star has issues of his own with the school and its simplistic ways of thinking.
Interstellar also stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine and arrives in select theaters November 5, and then opens nationwide on November 7.
Although the above clip is quite earthbound, the story is much more layered than that. Sure, McConaughey leads a space mission to the outer reaches of the galaxy to find a new home for humans. But, in the end, this scene says much about how this story is about family.
