Christopher Nolan’s mysterious flick Interstellar has been one of my favorite movies to cover over the past several months because everyone on the project has been really tight lipped. No major plot details have been released. In fact, the teaser that we posted (and have reposted at the bottom) is also completely void of plot points.

In a recent interview with Variety, star of Interstellar, Matthew McConaughey talked a tiny bit about the movie and that it had even just wrapped filming, and wrapped early. Check out what he said about Interstellar in that interview below, followed by the teaser.

[H]e will be seen this November in Christopher Nolan’s top-secret sci-fi epic “Interstellar.” While he can’t divulge anything about the plot, McConaughey does say: “Here’s what I can tell you,” before slipping into the third person. “It’s the most ambitious thing he’s ever done. And he’s done some ambitious stuff.”

Nolan may be tight-lipped about the film’s plot, but he has nothing but praise for the pic’s star. “Matthew works from the inside out,” he says. “He approaches a character from a deep human understanding, refusing to take shortcuts to an emotional connection with the audience — all while never losing sight of the demands of the overall narrative.”

Interstellar” might break McConaughey’s streak of independent films, but he does point out that Nolan, who began his career with small pics like “Following” and “Memento,” still brings an indie sensibility to big-budget movies. “There’s no fucking around on set,” the actor notes. “He’s a great problem solver. In that way, he’s very indie. Here’s a guy who could have whatever budget he wants — and we finished shooting early.”
