Science Fiction and Christopher Nolan fans are highly anticipating Interstellar, Nolan’s next film centering on space travel and finding a means to save the human race.

Interstellar follows a group of explorers, scientists and experts through a wormhole to save mankind. The synopsis notes that they “surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage” while Earth is running out of natural resources.

“We used to look up at the sky and wonder at our place in the stars,” says McConaughey’s Cooper over footage of dying crops and dust-covered cars and homes in the trailer. “Now we just look down, and worry about our place in the dirt.”

Production designer Nathan Crowley has given away a few details to EW of info on some of the key plot themes. According to Crowley, Christopher Nolan first brought him on board by asking, “Do you want to do a movie about black holes, relativity, gravity, and their effect on time?”

Interstellar arrives in theaters on November 7, 2014.
