Yesterday the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens showed up online, and judging by the reactions to the dozens of hardcore fans in my newsfeed, it was simultaneously an occasion for excitement and tears of joy. But while registering one’s own personal emotions is all well and good, isn’t it really more appropriate to let a celebrity do the feeling for us? Seems only natural given the circumstances. Who better than the world’s feeler-in-chief, Matthew Mcconaughey, whose rough, manly weeping has carried us through the past year or two.
This meme Matthew Mcconaughey Reacting to the Star Wars Trailer cuts a scene from his Interstellar with the nerdgasm trailer, which makes a lot of sense since Star Wars, like that film, is probably going to be a sci-fi epic that looks really pretty but lacks any sort of narrative cohesion.
