Check out the mind-blowing Comic-Con trailer for Nolan's sci-fi epic Interstellar

One of the buzziest trailers to debut at San Diego Comic-Con belonged to Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic Interstellar, and now the rest of us have a chance to check out the awe-inspiring new footage.

From Inception to his Dark Knight trilogy, Nolan has never taken the easy approach when it comes to the genre. The more we see of Interstellar, the more it seems like this has a chance to be his magnum opus. It’s sweeping, heartfelt and gorgeous — and above all, ambitious.

It’s hard to sum up in a logline, but the film essentially focuses on a dying Earth as we reach the tipping point of sustainability and look to the stars for a chance at survival. This being Nolan, it seems to tackle the big issues of society and space exploration through the hyper-focused lens of Matthew McConaughey's character and his family. 

The Comic-Con trailer shows off some great new footage, including more of our dust-covered planet and the stunning deep-space vistas McConaughey will find once he heads out into the stars. Check out the new trailer below and let us know what you think:

The film stars McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, Topher Grace and a few others. Interstellar opens Nov. 6.
