The new trailer for Interstellar is here, and it really does look set to be one of those incredible Hollywood blockbusters that gets everyone talking. The cast list is impressive for a start, with Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck and Michael Caine to name but a few.
The film centres on a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to extend human space travel, enabling them to travel the huge distances involved in an interstellar voyage. Problems on earth mean humans need to find elsewhere to live, and as Michael Caine’s character says in the trailer, “We’re not meant to save the world, we’re meant to leave it.”
Speculation surrounded the roles Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain would take in the film, after it was noted on Twitter that Mackenzie Foy, who plays McConaughey’s onscreen daughter, bore a striking resemblance to Hathaway.

However, it has since been confirmed by The Wrap on Twitter that it is in fact Chastian who plays the older version of Foy’s character, though representatives at Paramount have so far neither confirmed nor denied the tweet.
CONFIRMED: Jessica Chastain plays the adult Mackenzie Foy, aka Matthew McConaughey’s daughter, in Nolan’s INTERSTELLAR.

With the film not set to be released until November, I’d say we will be hearing more in due course, but one thing’s for sure, this trailer really is quite awesome. Watch below.
