The Next Billion Dollar Movie? Interstellar.

October 1, 2014 — by The Social Clymer

I know that I can’t buy a ticket today, but if I could, I would.  Today, the third trailer came out for the upcoming Christopher Nolan movie.  Glimpses of the movie through teasers and trailers have shown us a future Earth that’s in trouble.  Like serious trouble.  The US has turned into a dustbowl with people in masks, water apparently scarce and dust storms menacing small towns.  Every time I see those scenes, it makes me want to cough.

Here’s the latest trailer.

So, who does the world turn to for salvation?  To help lead them to a better life somewhere in the stars? Matthew McConaughey of course! Not the skeptical preacher from Contact, thank goodness.  He is, however, a father who makes a choice between being with his children now or potentially saving their future. Spoiler… he flies into space.  Get it… Interstellar!

I have watched this trailer three times now.  Each time when I finish, I utter a quiet, “Dude.” I haven’t seen a movie like this that makes me feel a sense of wonder at the size of the universe and our place in it for a long time. I can’t wait to feel small in the theater.

I can’t help but watch these trailers and think of the size and story of some of the most successful movies.  I wonder if this has the chops to be a billion dollar movie?  My bet… it does.

What do you think?  Is Interstellar on your must-see list for this fall?
