Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi film Interstellar is definitely going to end up on a lot of people’s must-watch movies list for 2014. Nolan fans will want to see it because it’s the director’s first original feature since 2010’s Inception. Science enthusiasts will want to watch it because the story is based on the work of theoretical physicist Kip Thorne. And everyone else will want to see it because of Matthew McConaughey’s winning smile.

For the people who are still on the fence about checking it out, however, a new teaser trailer has arrived that offers a first look at what to expect from this ambitious new wormhole-travelling drama.

The original script for Interstellar was penned by the director’s brother, Jonathan Nolan, and later revised by Christopher Nolan in order to incorporate some of his own original ideas. The story takes place in a future where Earth’s climate has made it impossible to grow enough crops to sustain the population, and so a swell team of explorers are tasked with using a wormhole to find fresh land for cultivation.

Starring alongside McConaughey are Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Topher Grace, John Lithgow and Nolan mainstay Michael Caine. The reveal of the trailer was accompanied by the launch of an official site for the movie, as well as Facebook and Twitter pages, and the above logo in stylish black and white.

First impressions are very important, so tell us in the comments if this teaser trailer leaves you dispassionate or desperate for more.

Interstellar opens in regular and select IMAX theaters on November 7th, 2014.
