TORONTO — An out-of-this-world trailer has been released for Christopher Nolan’s made-in-Alberta epic Interstellar.

The trailer offers some clues about the film’s closely-guarded storyline — which focuses on explorers who exploit a wormhole to voyage beyond the limits of human space travel.

“We must confront the reality that nothing in our solar system can help us,” declares Michael Caine’s character, as Matthew McConaughey’s Cooper struggles to leave his family behind and embark on a space mission.

“When you become a parent, one thing becomes really clear and that is you want to make sure your children feel safe,” Cooper tells Brand (Anne Hathaway).

A launch countdown is heard in the trailer over a dramatic Hans Zimmer score.

Four months of filming Interstellar began last August in Alberta — including locations in Lethbridge, Okotoks, Nanton and Longview.

Additional scenes were shot in Iceland and Los Angeles.

The movie was directed by Christopher Nolan, who co-wrote the script with his brother Jonathan Nolan.

Interstellar is the 44-year-old British director’s first movie since 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises. His previous films include 2010’s Inception and 2000’s Memento.

Joining McConaughey and Hathaway in the cast are Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck and Ellen Burstyn.

The movie is due in theatres on Nov. 7.
