The first trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar has arrived, teasing the notion of reviving humanity's will to explore the universe.

The film, Nolan's first directorial effort since 2012's The Dark Knight Rises, stars McConaughey alongside Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Wes Bentley, Bill Irwin and Michael Caine

The official synopsis is short on details but teases a future where "NASA is no more, and the 20th century is to blame." Also, it appears that there may be some sort of time travel involved: "A mysterious rip in spacetime opens and it's up to whatever is left of NASA to explore."

The Paramount and Warner Bros. title, which began shooting in August, hits theaters on Nov. 7, 2014.
