Interstellar: This World Is A Tragedy

Interstellar: Poster| A Constantly Racing Mind.
Before you know it we will be heading into November and into theaters to witness Christopher Nolan's great space adventure, as we watch as humankind ventures into the far reaches of the holy void of space.  Here is another "Interstellar" trailer to feast your eye upon and tap your foot impatiently waiting for October to end. 

Academy Award Winner Matthew McConaughey,  and Anne Hathaway from "The Dark Knight Rises" team up to travel billions of miles in search of a new home for humanity.  Since the industrial revolution, human beings pollute the Earth at a rate that grows exponentially each year. With certain gases in the atmosphere blocking heat from escaping, other gasses that linger in the atmosphere do not change in temperature and 'force' climate change.  From ice melting at the polar caps, to drought and dust storms throughout the world, it is clear that we are quickening our own doom.  The Earth as McConaughey's character Cooper says in the the film, "It's been telling us to leave for a while now."

In the trailer below we see Cooper (McConaughey) finding a crashed drone and discusses with his daughter Murph (Mackenzie Foy) what to do with it. Next we see images of the Earth as seen from a rocket taking off and jettisoning one of its rocket stages. Similar to many scenes we've seen on TV with the Apollo missions and in films like "Apollo 13" with Tom Hanks. "Your daughter's generation will be the last to survive on Earth.," says Michael Caine's character. Images of our solar system display while a soft piano plays over a fast beat of violins playing in the background as Cooper and Brand (Hathaway) prepare to enter the wormhole and leave our galaxy. Their rocket ship descends toward a planet and next we find them walking on a new planet. Next, we see some amazing scenes of this alien other world. Cooper exclaims, "Our mission does not work if the people on Earth are dead by the time we pull it off."  Then we see a shuttlecraft landing on water and both Brand and Cooper in the water. At the end, Cooper declares that humankind will "...find a way, like we always have."



 Here is the synopsis from IMDB and Wikipedia:
A group of explorers make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage. Among the travelers is a widowed engineer (McConaughey) who has to decide to leave behind his two children to join the voyage with the goal of saving humanity
