(Pajiba)   "Do not go quietly into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light." It's the new trailer for Interstellar, and if you don't tear up at this, you're not a human being   (pajiba.com) divider line 42

I find I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it's the excitement only a man who has seen Contact can feel, a man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can see it in IMAX. I hope to see McConaughey and see his hand. I hope the movie is as good as it has been in my dreams. I hope.

Also, don't just watch the trailer - read TFA. That's a brilliant trailer review.

Some people cry at movies where teenaged lovers meet their tragedy with eyes open and hands held tight. Some when the old gunslinger dies to save the young. Some when true love recognizes itself in another's eyes. Some for beauty, some for sadness. Me, I cry when men dare to dream, when they step trembling into the beyond, leaving all familiar ties behind. I cry when we peer over their shoulders and my god, it's full of stars.

Yeah, I guess I have to hand in my "human card," too. Looks like a great movie, but nothing I'm going to get that worked up over.

Everything we do that is NOT for the goal of leaving this planet and exploring the universe is a wasted effort. We're the Gods, and hopefully we'll survive long enough to finally start acting like it.

I cry for ffx at the zanarkand campfire, but not old yeller. Red fern a bit though.

It looks like an interesting movie, but I didn't tear up or get over excited on that trailer. Sorry. I'll see it when it comes out though.

Sorry, I saw it 3 links down and, though it looks good, I'm not a biatch so I didn't cry

I guess I'm not human, or even a replicant, because I still see nothing in the trailer that does not seem outrageously implausible.

Earth is running out of food. Not in decades but right now.
Nothing in the solar system can help them.
He is loving father. Wants to rescue kids. So he leaves on interstellar travel.
Not interplanetary, but interstellar.
He starts off using a Saturn V, which apparently is readied for flight within a few days or weeks?
He clearly needs an FTL drive, but there is no hint of  an FTL drive in the trailer.
No need for relativity or time dilation I guess. He's just going to warp there and warp back.

And all on a premise that engineers are bad, engineers make games and tvs and engineers can't help with a problem of food:

+ seeding
+ irrigation
+ harvesting
+ storage
+ distribution
+ nutrition

And so apparently the goal will be all of earth gets on three arks to travel with this FTL drive to the new planet??

I'm not saying it won't be a good movie, just that the trailers for it seem truly like the worst kind of implausible, bullshiat.

Tear up? It was all I could do from snoring.

But I do have my precious photos.

It's been like 15 years since I've gone to the opening night of a movie. That streak will end for me this November.

I hope to see McConaughey Anne Hathaway's bare breasts with erect nipples and see his hand. I hope the movie is as good as it has been in my dreams. I hope.


Fixed that for me and a lot of other people that will be posting in this thread.

So we leave the planet and explore the universe and then we finish with that.  Then what?  And after that?

I hope there comes a day in my lifetime when interstellar travel is possible... getting tired of watching movies and tv shows where it is the norm.

Well that's a few hundred thousand years of incredible progress, by the end of which we will have a completely new understanding of the universe(s) and our purpose. Check back with me then.

So, of the roughly seven BILLION people in the world, this bumbling hick is the only one who can save the Earth?

I cried at the horribly cliched shilling from the author.  I also cried he watched it 19 times.

It looks pretty stupid.

But I think Nolan is a hack. He is incapable of creating a believable/comprehensible/self-consistent story, and his movies take themselves SO seriously. Everything he does is melodramatic to the point of goofiness.

And yes, I'm including the "Batman" movies and "Inception". They're crap. They're "deep" movies for people that think the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy is great literature.

"Ask ten different scientists about the environment, population control, genetics - and you'll get ten different answers. But there's one thing every scientist on the planet agrees on: whether it happens in a hundred years, or a thousand years, or a million years, eventually our sun will grow cold, and go out. When that happens, it won't just take us, it'll take Marilyn Monroe, and Lao-tsu, Einstein, Maruputo, Buddy Holly, Aristophanes - all of this. All of this was for nothing, unless we go to the stars." - Sinclair, Babylon 5

Earth is falling apart and we need a new place to live

he is the inventor of the FTL travel

heads mission to search nearby star systems with candidate planets

first one is too hostile

2nd one is too cold..

a few more visits

end up finding a perfect replacement

heads back to Earth to find out 100s of years have past.. everyone has died long ago...  and Earth is dead...

heads back to new planet to start over with rest of crew

apparently it's a discovered wormhole near Earth they just fly through.  I donno.  Looks pretty boring to me.  But I thought Inception looked boring and I enjoyed it.

I'll catch it on Bluray depending on reviews.

So he lives on a farm and has a rural accent = he must be an idiot? Prejudices aside, it's in either one of the trailers or something that was said at a panel discussion that he's not just some dumb idiot who pulls the golden ticket out of a chocolate bar. He's a science genius who has withdrawn from that world to focus on the immediate task of keeping his own family alive, when they come to him with a chance to save everyone.

Well, that explains my lack of a reflection in the mirror.

I want to get worked up about this movie but...I don't know. The story line doesn't excite me and aside from Caine, I'm meh on the cast. The only reason I'll watch it is because it is a Nolan film and nothing else.
