Interstellar


Click the arrow to watch the trailer on YouTube.

Warner Bros. released over the weekend the trailer for a new space film titled Interstellar.

The film already has an official web site at www.interstellar-movie.com.

According to that site:

In the future, governments and economies across the globe have collapsed, food is scarce, NASA is no more, and the 20th Century is to blame. A mysterious rip in spacetime opens and it's up to whatever is left of NASA to explore and offer up hope for mankind.

Mainly based on the scientific theories and script treatment of renowned theoretical physicist, Kip Thorne. Interstellar is set to be released in late 2014.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Interstellar chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who use a wormhole to surpass the limits of human space travel and conquer vast distances on an interstellar voyage. The plot is believed to involve time travel and alternate dimensions, but other details are being kept under wraps.”

If you watch the trailer, there's no mention of this being in the future. The impression (a false one) left with the audience is that space exploration and innovation have come to an end, when the exact opposite is true. I'm sure Elon Musk, Bob Bigelow, Jeff Bezos, David Masten, Jeff Greason, Paul Allen, Richard Branson and many others would appreciate a few minutes of rebuttal time for this pessimistic and inaccurate message.

Anyway, Interstellar is scheduled for release in “late 2014.”
