'Interstellar's' Matthew McConaughey reacts to the new 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' trailer

Posted on

Most have watched the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer several (dozen) times by now. It may have made you laugh, smile or even shed a tear. But you probably didn’t cry as much as Matthew McConaughey did.

YouTuber oskararnarson combined footage of McConaughey in Interstellar with the Force Awakens trailer, and his increasingly emotional reaction lines up quite nicely with the clips. (For those who don’t remember, the Interstellar scene finds Cooper, out in the far reaches of space, viewing messages from his Earth-bound children, who have grown up while he’s been on the mission.) 

Watch Cooper lose it at the sight of Han Solo and Chewbacca below. Not that the space traveler who’s in love with another space-set film shouldn’t feel any shame. We know the feeling, Coop.
