Interstellar teaser poster

You've gotta love the color scheme here as well as the simple, eye-catching design. Everything you need to know about the movie – which isn't much – is right there. It's about space. It's about humans stretching their reach. The cast is amazing, it's in IMAX and it's from Christopher Nolan. Plus, if you look closer you can see what seems to be a father and daughter, or maybe a man and wife in the rural setting.

Plus, that tag line just resonates: "Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here." It's a very striking poster.

The poster was released in advance of the first full trailer for the November release. That'll hits theaters May 16 with Godzilla and The Washington Post got an early look:

The trailer unspooled to show Matthew McConaughey driving his truck through corn fields while a lush orchestral score swelled in the background. Later, the fields had caught fire, an ominous dust cloud could be seen looming over a baseball game, and McConaughey (playing a character named Cooper) was reassuring his daughter that he loved her — right before being shot into space in order to save the world.

It sounds like, even in the new trailer, we won't see Nolan's vision of space. Not that we need to. So far, you can tell Nolan and his team are being very careful marketing this film. And they can afford to be. They have the reigning Best Actor winner, an insane supporting cast (including, but not limited to, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Ellen Burstyn and Michael Caine) and one of the most popular and marketable filmmakers in the world. Just give us a glimpse and we'll line up around the block.
