Down To Earth

Who’s the villain in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar?

I can't stop watching this latest trailer for Christopher Nolan's epic-looking "Interstellar." He has significantly raised the bar for sci-fi but from the looks of it, with the future resembling a global-scale dust bowl where nothing grows, the bad guy is climate change. (No, climate change will not have Bane-like voice issues.) 

Earth has run out of food and it's up to Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and a group of scientists travel to a different dimension after the destruction climate change has wrought on agriculture so Earth can keep L-I-V-I-N. 

Will this set off the skeptics or will it awake a new demographic? I don't know. But I know what I'm doing at IMAX on November 4th.
