There are only about three months left in 2014 at this point, but those three months look to be absolutely jam-packed with exciting new movies. One we’re particularly looking forward to is Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar, which shoots Matthew McConaughey into outer space in a last, desperate attempt to save humanity.
As Nolan himself points out, that makes it “almost a mirror image of Inception. It expands out in the way Inception contracts inwards.” Read more comments from Nolan and his cast, and see new Interstellar images of McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Jessica Chastain, and David Gyasi after the jump.

It almost seems a shame to post the new Interstellar IMAX TV spot here at /Film, because this is so obviously the kind of film that begs to be seen on the biggest screen possible. On the other hand, though, if sharing a dinky YouTube preview is what it takes to get people to see the full movie in a proper IMAX theater, then the net effect of that will be good.
Besides, we admit, it’s just really hard to resist taking a peek at Christopher Nolan‘s latest stunner. Watch the Interstellar IMAX TV spot after the jump.
