First look: Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar"

Though the new teaser for Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" leaves something to be desired when it comes to actual scenes from the sci-fi film, the message delivered by Matthew McConaughey is quite inspiring.

"We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible," McConaughey is heard saying over footage of important events in history. "And we count these moments, these moments where we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars."
