Los Angeles - Interstellar is an "evolution" in filmmaking for Christopher Nolan.

The acclaimed director assembled an all-star cast for the movie - which follows a team of space travellers as they go through a wormhole - and despite the scale of the production, its star Matthew McConaughey insists it is very "intimate".

He said: "Nobody is able to put more scope, scale, awe on screen than Chris.

"But I think he was wanting to take the next step, toward something more intimate. It was an evolution."

Checkout the trailer of Interstellar:

For the director, who wrote the script with his brother Jonathan, he wanted to make an "honest" film about "human nature" and the way people interact.

He explained in an interview with Entertainment Weekly magazine: "The film is about human nature, what it means to be human. It sounds like a very grand statement, but I don't intend it to be. I mean it in the way, say, Treasure of the Sierra Madre is about dramatising ideas of human nature.

"When you take an audience far away from human experience as possible, you wind up focusing very tightly on human nature and how we are connected to each other. What the film tries to do is to be very honest in that appraisal."

Fans are already hyped about this film.
