Trailer Watch: Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar teaser trailer

I have no idea what this is about.

I got chills, anyway. I love NASA.

Interstellar hits theater in November 2014.

Trailer Watch: Jupiter Ascending teaser trailer

The Wachowskis are back to make original sci-fi stories with Jupiter Ascending, starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, and Sean Bean (among others). There are a couple of thematic similarities with The Matrix here (normal person waking up to find out they’re special, for one), but I dunno. It looks pretty?

The film opens July 25, 2014.

Here’s the official description, courtesy Coming Soon:

Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.

Trailer Watch: Alfonso Cuáron’s Gravity theatrical trailer

We got three intense single-take teaser trailers for Alfonso Cuáron’s Gravity back in July, and now, finally, we have a full, theatrical trailer. As I had hoped/expected, it shows us some glimpses of what else is to come — hints that we have no idea what this story is really about. And I love it.

Gravity hits theaters on October 4th.
