Christopher Nolan is the director of successful films like “The Prestige,” “The Dark Knight” and “Inception.” On Nov. 7 his next film, “Interstellar,” will hit theaters, and by the looks of the trailer, it could be another one blockbuster.

Nolan is one of my favorite directors. I first realized this when “The Dark Knight” came out, which was basically a beam of pure genius. So when I first saw the trailer for “Interstellar” and found out Nolan was directing, I instantly had high hopes that “Interstellar” could be a deep-space masterpiece.

The sci-fi adventure film addresses the idea of continuing life somewhere other than Earth. It is about how a group of explorers discover a wormhole that could be the key to finding an alternative home for mankind, saving them from a world that is coming to an end.

One of my favorite actors, Matthew McConaughey, stars in the film. For me, knowing that he will be in the film is very reassuring. The latest film that McConaughey starred in was “Dallas Buyers Club” for which he won an academy award.

Put together an amazing director like Nolan and an award-winning actor like McConaughey, and I think we could have one fantastic movie.

The other actors starring in the film include Anne Hathaway, who was in “The Dark Knight Rises,” Wes Bentley from “The Hunger Games,” Jessica Chastain from “Zero Dark Thirty” and Matt Damon from the “Bourne” trilogy.

I think the overall plot of the film is very intriguing. Anything about deep space and going into the unknown fascinates me. I really enjoy sci-fi films like “Prometheus” and “Gravity,”  not only because of the space aspect, but also because they engage my curiosity.

I think the concept that the world is coming to end will draw many sci-fi fans to go see “Interstellar.” What happens when the world will end? What will mankind do about it? When a movie offers answers to those questions, people become intrigued and want to go see the it.

Can any of this actually happen? This is probably one of the most-asked questions when watching a sci-fi movie. In this case is there any possibility that there are such things as wormholes and if so, can they lead to places in deep space where human life could survive?

In the film, the world comes to end due to drought and famine, something that I’m not sure could happen, but it definitely leaves us guessing.

When you think about it, that’s the fun in watching movies like “Interstellar.”
