A new trailer for Christopher Nolan’s next film, Interstellar, was released Friday. The film stars Matthew McConaughey as an astronaut who must leave his family on Earth and travel through a wormhole to save the world from famine. The details of his mission are still fuzzy, but judging by all the shots of swirling storms and burning crops, our planet seems to be trapped in an extreme Dust Bowl scenario, leaving humans no choice but to look elsewhere in the universe for sustenance.

You can expect a few familiar Nolan features: a gloomy color palette, some friends from the Dark Knight trilogy (Michael Caine as mastermind rocket scientist, Anne Hathaway as fellow space traveler), and a dramatically swelling Hans Zimmer score.

Interstellar opens in November.
