'Interstellar': Nolan & McConaughey Preview Trailer #3 at Comic-Con

Christopher Nolan Talks Interstellar

Here's what our own Sandy Schaefer saw in Interstellar trailer #3:

The trailer is very heavy on the space exploration angle, indicating that human civilization has all but given up attempting to break new ground (meta-theme for cinema there) - and thus, is in pure survival mode, when they're forced to start reaching beyond our world due to an encroaching ecological disaster (see: the dust storms shown in the previous trailer).

Among other things, this trailer all but reveals that Jessica Chastain is playing the older version of Matthew McConaughey's daughter - who he contacts while on his mission, no doubt as the result of some wormhole travel paradox that allows for McConaughey to be the same age as when he left Earth, but talk to a decades-older version of his child (note: McConaughy specified that his character, Cooper, is a widow with two children - it seems that Casey Affleck *might* be his son, but that was shakier).

Beyond that, the trailer teases McConaughey and Anne Hathaway's character (Cooper's co-pilot) reaching an alien world, which is "played" by Iceland (as has long been rumored) - and the preview even concludes with a shot of their ship, approaching a vast alien world ensconced in strange, nebula like rings. There are other odd moments here and there (see: Hathaway meeting what appears to be an old version of David Gyasi's character, mid-mission) that, no doubt, is the result of Nolan narrative trickery that will be explained in the actual film.
