"We used to look up in the sky and wonder at our place in the stars. Now we just look down and worry about our place in the dirt." - Matthew McConaughey,
In November, Christopher Nolen's movie "Interstellar" will hit theaters and, last week, a very atmospheric teaser trailer has shown us what to expect.
Starring Matthew McConaughey, the film is set in a not-so-distant future Earth where it seems an ecological breakdown has ravaged our planet. Amongst scenes of wildfires, choking dust storms and human suffering, personal family ties cause emotional turmoil for McConaughey as he is about to embark on a mission to save the world.

"We must confront the reality that nothing in our solar system can help us," Michael Caine tells McConaughey in one scene, setting up the idea that something beyond the solar system might be able to help us.
Amidst all the destruction, it appears that a wormhole has appeared in the cosmic neighborhood, creating a relativistic pathway to another part of the galaxy, offering something no other planet in the solar system can: potentially habitable worlds.
