From the deep breaths to the laughter to the sobbing, McConaughey's reactions are perfectly in tune with the trailer.
Judging by this video, we're not sure if McConaughey will be able to hold it together when the film opens in cinemas on December 18. »
The new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted simultaneously online and at the Star Wars Celebration event yesterday, and while it played you could imagine the reactions being experienced worldwide, as millions of voices suddenly cried out with joy and then suddenly were even more excited for the upcoming sequel. It was the very opposite of a disturbance in the Force. It was indeed a reawakening. Among those fans who captured their own emotional reactions is Matthew McConaughey, who broke down in tears watching from his spaceship, which is heading out to another galaxy far, far away. Okay, so it's not really McConaughey but his Interstellar character, Cooper, and obviously he's not really streaming the Force Awakens trailer in the original version of the...

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...Matthew McConaughey got really emotional over the new Star Wars teaser trailer. Actually, it was just last year in Interstellar that the Oscar winner shed these tears, but thanks to some clever editing, he's now watching a preview of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and weeping right along with us! YouTube user oskararnarson cut together clips from J.J. Abrams' sure-to-be blockbuster and McConaughey's 2014 space flick. The force is strong—strong enough to make a man from Texas cry! And if the actual teaser trailer is any indication of how moving the whole movie will be, prepare for major waterworks on Dec. 18 when Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits »

As it turns out, Matthew McConaughey is a really big Star Wars fan, and was just one of many to go on an emotional rollercoaster while watching the new trailer for The Force Awakens. At least, that’s what this new video mashup would have us believe:

If you saw the Star Wars trailer (which, of course you did!), then your reaction probably resembled something like Vulture's own Abraham Riesman's shot-for-shot lovefest. Or maybe it looked more like Matthew McConaughey's nonstop sobbing in Interstellar — which some brilliant fan thought to mash up with the trailer to make it look like one of those YouTube reaction videos. A+ work! »

This is way funnier than I expected it to be as a YouTuber has taken to cutting a clip from Christopher Nolan's Interstellar and made it appear as if Matthew McConaughey is watching the latest trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens. In the film McConaughey's character is listening to a message from home, but here he's getting all teary-eyed watching the Star Wars trailer and, as far as I'm concerned, the wave is what seals this deal. The question now is just how many more times we'll see this done, after all, people still make those Hitler parodies. yt id="PYHdQUyOunA" width="515" readmore postid="174117" »

Jordan Gavaris, the 25-year-old Canadian actor, cut his teeth on indie films and local TV, but found himself floundering after “Unnatural History,” a 2010 live-action series on the Cartoon Network, was cancelled. Then, about two years later, his agent called him about the role of Felix, who’s one part avant-garde artist, one part glam-punk fashion rebel, on sci-fi series “Orphan Black.” “There is so much gender and sexual ambiguity with him,” Gavaris says. “It was the biggest hodgepodge of bizarre paint chips from pop culture blended into this palette.”
“Orphan Black” co-star Tatiana Maslany says Gavaris is fearless on the set, and challenges her to keep up. “The work he can do is imaginative, and has a real sense of play in it,” she says. “He’s not afraid to take big risks and be bold.” The role — in which he plays opposite Maslany’s seven very different »

What was your reaction to the new teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Most people were emotionally stirred and nostalgic after seeing the return of Han, Chewbacca, Leia's hands, and Luke's voice over new sweeping imagery like the crashed Star Destroyer and the new stormtroopers. I also guarantee your reaction was pretty close to Matthew McConaughey's. Okay, so this isn't actually Matthew McConaughey's reaction to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser but rather a quite perfect mash-up »

There were plenty of enthusiastic reactions to the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer that dropped yesterday, ranging from the overjoyed to the overemotional. It’s understandable given how much this franchise means to people and how promising J.J. Abrams’ sequel appears to be, and it looks like a recent Oscar winner was a bit overwhelmed by the new trailer as well: Matthew McConaughey. Below, you can watch McConaughey’s “reaction” to watching the new Star Wars trailer in real time, though for some reason it looks like the actor was on an inter-dimensional space journey at the time that he viewed the new trailer. Considering this is only just the second teaser trailer, I can only imagine how McConaughey’s going to react when the first theatrical trailer for The Force Awakens is released. I hope somebody's looking out for the guy when that time rolls around. »

Fans of Paul Feig have a new group of geeks to fall in love with, and the crew of the spaceship that makes up the set of Yahoo Screen’s Other Space are as odd and “freaky” as anything he’s come up with before.
Stewart Lipinski (Karan Soni) is mildly interested in pursuing a career in galaxy mapping, or whatever, and as we enter the show, he is taking his final test to become Captain of his own spaceship. He wins out over his sister, Karen (Bess Rous), largely because she is so… intense, that even the higher-ups of the space program are scared of her.
This is not exciting news for Stewart, who doesn’t want to spend a long space voyage dealing with her, especially when he has to convince her that he’s in charge.
The crew is basically a semi-typical gaggle of misfits, and Stewart »

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has been welcomed by fans with open arms after a second teaser trailer debuted on Thursday, but no one was more touched by it than Matthew McConaughey. A clever parody that takes advantage of the actor’s most emotional scene in “Interstellar” presents him bawling his eyes out, as if he’s overcome with joy, while “watching” the new trailer for the Dec. 18 release directed by J.J. Abrams. In the reality of the scene from the 2014 science fiction film directed by Christopher Nolan, McConaughey’s character, Cooper, is actually watching decades-old transmissions from his children while traveling. »

Steve Carell has officially completed his transformation from comedic actor to a dramatic one. No one is left doubting his talents as a versatile performer. Thus, whatever he does next is highly anticipated, and this latest project might just be the perfect fit for him to show both sides of his acting range.
The Wrap is reporting that Carell is now set to star in Marwencol, a movie based on a 2010 documentary planned over two years ago by Robert Zemeckis. Carell will presumably portray Mark Hogancamp, who as seen in the documentary is a man who was beaten brutally by teenagers to the point that he suffered brain damage and amnesia. He now spends his time creating miniature figurines of a scale, World War II era town. Here’s the full synopsis for the documentary:

For all the fanfare that has already been built up for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" —from the endless stories about the expanding movie universe to the keynote event at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim on Thursday that launched the new trailer— it's a bit sobering to be reminded that only two minutes and thirty seconds of actual real marketing has been officially released thus far. That's it. And while you've undoubtedly watched the new trailer at least once and maybe even a few times, we've got a few new spins for you. In seemingly no time at all, Vimeo User Kyle Bailey cut together the first two 'Force Awakens' trailers, and the Lego version of the new trailer has also surfaced. Lastly, Matthew McConaughey has shared his reaction to the trailer as well. Check them out below, and lest you forget, 'The Force Awakens' arrives on December 18th.

There's no doubt that yesterday's second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens really moved fans of the sci-fi saga, especially with that final shot featuring two of our favorite heroes. Social media was full of people overwhelmed with feelings and joy, and apparently so was Matthew McConaughey. A reaction video has surfaced showing McConaughey watching the teaser trailer for the first time, and it's pretty clear that he's a huge Star Wars fan. There's plenty of people who got emotional, but McConaughey's reaction is on another level. He even went so far as to watch the trailer from space. He's just that dedicated. Matthew McConaughey's reaction to The Force Awakens trailer (via friend of the site John Cessna): Yes, this is footage from Interstellar, spliced with Star Wars by user oskararnarson on YouTube.

The second Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer debuted online Thursday during the Star Wars Celebration festivities, and it was just beautiful. It was more than any of us could have imagined or hoped for. The glistening sheen of the Chrometrooper brought a tear to our eyes, and the return of Han Solo and Chewbacca made us throw our hands up in the air with joy. But no one had quite the physical reaction as Matthew McConaughey.s Interstellar character. It.s moments like this when we realize just how truly magnificent the Internet is. Some genius by the YouTube username of oskararnarson mashed up Interstellar with the Star Wars 7 trailer to create the pitch perfect reaction video. He took the scene in which McConaughey.s Cooper awakens from his hibernation sleep chamber and rushes to a broadcast screen to see if his children sent him any transmissions. In »
Remember that scene from "Interstellar" where Matthew McConaughey gets all teary-eyed watching videos that his children made back on Earth while he's cruising around the galaxy for no good reason? Yes, yes, it was very emotional. But what it severely lacked, of course, was "Star Wars." Thankfully, that has been cleared up.
The video below will, as The Verge rightly suggests, become "your new favorite meme." So just sit back and enjoy. (Also we love that it's a way to enjoy the "Star Wars" trailer again without feeling like a complete weirdo.) Alright alright alright alright alright »
