Matthew McConaughey stars in first official Interstellar image

The first official Interstellar image has debuted in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly , giving us our first look at leading man, Matthew McConaughey.

The new image shows McConaughey tinkering with what looks like some sort of model spacecraft, watched by a pair of teenagers who look as though they might be his children.

Not too much to be gleaned from that, then, although production designer Nathan Crowley has given away a few tidbits 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?"

However, if all of that sounds very grand-scale and impersonal, Crowley is quick to stress the importance of the more intimate aspects of the plot. "Ultimately," he says, "it's this very human story about a father and daughter."

Directed by Nolan and co-starring Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Casey Affleck, Interstellar will open in the UK on 7 November 2014.
