Here's the second trailer for Christopher Nolan's Insterstellar and we still feel like we are only getting a very small grasp of what this movie is actually about other than Matthew McConaughey going to space. The movie is filled with stars, but we mostly only get glimpses of the other big names, like Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, and Casey Affleck. The only other person that gets significant airtime is Michael Caine, who, naturally, has an imposing voice over. "We're not meant to save the world," Michael Caine's character says. "We're meant to leave it." 

Also of note: the trailer focuses on the fact that McConaughey's character's daughter is named Murphy, after Murphy's law: "anything that can go wrong will," which McConaughey's character rewrites as, "what ever can happen, will happen."
