Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is cloaked in the director’s typical veil of secrecy, but the new poster for the Earth-based science-fiction film at least sets the tone with the tagline “Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.”

The film, which stars Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, and Ellen Burstyn, is rumored to be about space exploration through time-jumping wormholes.

The first teaser (below) was short on details and long on The Right Stuff optimism, with McConaughey drawling, “Perhaps we’ve just forgotten… that we are still pioneers… that we’ve barely begun… and that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us… because our destiny lies above us.”

The full trailer for the movie will debut in theaters before Godzilla on May 16 (though IMAX audiences at the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in D.C. are already being treated to it).
