With Interstellar opening in theaters nationwide today, following its early release in limited IMAX theaters, Paramount Pictures has released a new clip featuring stars Matthew McConaughey and Michael Caine.

Matthew McConaughey stars as Cooper, a farmer and former NASA pilot, who is recruited for perhaps the most important journey ever, to find a new home for mankind as Earth's resources keep dwindling away. This clip features Cooper being recruited by Professor Brand (Michael Caine) to pilot this mission into outer space, one he doesn't truly understand quite yet.

While he doesn't realize it yet in this scene, Cooper will be tasked with entering a newly-discovered wormhole on a journey that will take him years to fulfill, pulling him away from his beloved children. Watch as Cooper ponders this critical decision in a scene from director Christopher Nolan's epic sci-fi adventure, before you head into theaters this weekend.
