San Diego Comic Con attendees got a giant surprise tonight when Matthew McConaughey shocked the crowd by introducing Christopher Nolan, aka your favorite comic book geek's favorite director, to the stage.

McConaughey and Nolan were both making their first-ever appearances at Comic Con, which is huge considering Nolan's Batman trilogy is everything. 

Nolan directs and McConaughey stars as an engineer on a scientific mission to save Earth in Interstellar, the highly-anticipated sci-fi film that has something to do with wormholes, coming out Nov. 7.

McConaughey got the crowd going with his signature "alright, alright, alright" before bringing out the director who said he "Thought it would be a fun thing to come down and see what all the fuss is about.”

Nolan introduced a new trailer for the film, which got a ton of praise on Twitter, and said the trailer would probably be online some time next week. They didn't reveal much about the plot, though, which has been a highly-guarded secret since the movie was announced. 

McConaughey did explain that he met with Nolan before he knew he was even being considered for the role, and spent three hours alone with the director in his living room.

“I was like, what the hell was that about ... A week later, the script came out, I read it and I liked it quite a lot and I was in,” McConaughey said. 

Here's the trailer that came out in May, to hold you over until next week.
