From what I've read of the last Comic-Con, few upcoming movies managed to gather as much excitement as Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. After seeing the last released trailer, I can certainly understand why:
I'm still sure the movie will also generate a lot of controversy, since it seems to be following the current cultural zeitgeist of inevitable environmental collapse. No longer are we looking at space as 'the final frontier', a great unknown beckoning us to explore it in order to satisfy our curiosity; we now are looking at space as 'the final hope' for humanity, and the only solution to avoid extinction —whether caused by natural catastrophes, or our own reckless stewardship of the planet.

Quote of the Day:
“When you draw from the past, you’re stuck with the myths as they are. Fantasy and science fiction are the mythos of the future. Pop cultural mythos are strong mythos to hold on to, so why not explain magick in terms of the Force?”
