If you feel like Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is building towards something, you know, other than the actual movie release, you’re not alone. Starting last week we got a new poster every day, and you know how this week kicked off? With yet another new poster, that’s how. At least this one is a different shape than all the others, taking the form of a banner instead of your traditional vertical one sheet. Way to mix it up you guys. Maybe they’re working up to a new trailer or behind the scenes look, but until then, if something like that ever does materialize, we’ll have to content ourselves with this, and it ain’t too bad.
What little we know about the plot of Interstellar revolves around global climate change progressing to a point in the near future where the Earth won’t be able to sustain life for much longer. As a result, the entire planet is a kind of Great Depression-esque dust bowl, and a crew of astronauts, including Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, must take to the stars and venture through a newly discovered wormhole, on a search for a new planet for us to colonize and settle on. That’s where the catchy slogans like, “The end of the world will not be the end of us,” come into play.
