The scene in Trailer 3 where the ship is flying in what appears to be the atmosphere of the ice planet - from my computer monitor, I always asked, "what's that stuff flaking off of the ship and why?" Well, in the theater, I noticed that there is a mountain in the fog/clouds, in which the ship scrapes the mountain surface - explaining why stuff is flaking off the ship.
Didn't I read somewhere that there is going to be a massive spaceship crash sequence? I hope so, and hope it is a true "set piece", i.e. a scene that develops over time.
The other thing I noticed in the theater is that when the soundtrack music swells up in amplitude and then disappears, there is a lot of reverb in the theater - the change from loudness to silence was great in the theater. On computer speakers, it just sounds as if the sounds stops - not nearly as much reverb.

In short - the trailer is great and even greater in a theater!
Good stuff.

As far as the third trailer being played in front of GOTG, I think they are restricting it to IMAX showings for these very reasons. Both the visuals and the sound mix demand (and command) the specs of an IMAX screen and speaker system. When I saw GOTG in IMAX this weekend, there were two groups of trailers at the beginning: (i) the trailers that were played at a normal resolution, and (ii) the trailers that were preceded by an "enhanced for IMAX" notification. The Interstellar trailer was of the latter group.

That very much depends on the theater. There are definitely theaters playing Trailer 3 with non-IMAX GotG showings. If you didn't see it with a GotG showing, then it may have been a "B" print. Movies are usually scheduled as "A" prints, and "B" prints, each one with different sets of trailers.

Nobody knows. Possibly Chastain's love interest.
Ugh. Who would love such a meek character.
:lol:

It's certainly a hard pill to swallow. Here's hoping he tears it up, if only for one movie. Nolan seems to work wonders with guys like that. Thought he did pretty good with JGL, who is a little overrated IMO.

A source close to me said Matt Damon will be playing...
...the reptilian leader of the planet Zalthar. He's half man/half lizard and his people on the planet have died out. Cooper runs into this planet and agrees to take Zalthar on board. Then all hell breaks loose as Zalthar (yes, the planet is named after him) raids the ship essentially.
This sounds incredible. And my source also said this angle will feature more in trailer 4, which is set to debut with Gone Girl in October.

Hathaway's husband

He's actually playing Will Hunting. Instead of working for the NSA, he threw in an extra "A" and started working for NASA!
