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.
Interstellar premieres on November 7th
