Interstellar

Recommended Posts

Paramount Pictures, a division of Viacom, Inc., and Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that principal photography on “INTERSTELLAR” is officially underway in Alberta, Canada. The film will be released in IMAX® and 35mm theaters on November 7, 2014. Paramount Pictures will distribute domestically, Warner Bros. Pictures internationally.

Directed and co-written by Christopher Nolan (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy), the production will travel the globe and utilize a mixture of 35mm anamorphic and IMAX film photography to bring to the screen a script based on the combination of an original idea by Nolan and an existing script by Jonathan Nolan, originally developed for Paramount Pictures and producer Lynda Obst. The new script chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

“INTERSTELLAR” features a prestigious cast that includes Matthew McConaughey (“Magic Mike,” “Mud”), Academy Award® winner Anne Hathaway (“Les Miserables,” “The Dark Knight Rises”), Academy Award® nominee Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty,” “The Tree of Life”), Bill Irwin (“Rachel Getting Married,” TV’s “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”) Academy Award® nominee John Lithgow (“Terms of Endearment,” “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”) Academy Award® nominee Casey Affleck (“The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” “Gone Baby Gone”), David Gyasi (“Cloud Atlas”), Wes Bentley (“The Hunger Games”), Mackenzie Foy (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Parts 1 and 2”) Timothée Chalamet (TV’s “Homeland”), Topher Grace (“Spider-Man 3”), David Oyelowo (“Jack Reacher,” “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”), Academy Award® winner Ellen Burstyn (“The Last Picture Show,” “The Exorcist”), and Academy Award® winner Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy).

The film is being produced by Academy Award® nominee Emma Thomas (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy) and Lynda Obst (“How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,” “The Siege”). Renowned theoretical physicist Kip Thorne is consulting on the film as well as serving as executive producer, along with Jake Myers (“Jack Reacher,” “RED,” “RED 2”) and Jordan Goldberg (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy).

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Hoyte van Hoytema (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” “The Fighter”), Academy Award®-nominated production designer Nathan Crowley (“The Dark Knight” Trilogy), Academy Award®-nominated costume designer Mary Zophres (“Gangster Squad,” “True Grit”) Academy Award®-nominated editor Lee Smith (“The Dark Knight” Trilogy,” “Elysium,”), Academy Award®-winning composer Hans Zimmer (“The Lion King,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy), and Academy Award®-winning visual effects supervisor Paul Franklin (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy)

There is not a part of me that isn't excited for this film. First off, look at that cast. That is a fucking terrific cast. Secondly, it's Nolan who has directed three of my favorite films of all time. Can't wait for this to come out next year.

I think Nolan cashed in a lot of the credit in had in the bank with TDKR and to a lesser extent Inception. This would have to be pretty amazing for him to reclaim his aura in my books. I've been a fan since Memento, but the last couple have been below his best. And I'd also like to see him work with some different writers.

It'll be interesting to see what kind of performance he gets out of McConaughey, because that dude is a horseshit actor.

Maybe TDKR if you want to go with the critical acclaim but Inception, The film with a 88 on Rotten Tomatoes, 8 Oscar nomination including a Best Picture Nomination, and grossing over 800 million worldwide? Not really. Hell, even TDKR outgrossed Batman Begins.

McConaughey is actually turning his career around. He was pretty damn good in Magic Mike and Killer Joe.

I've similarly heard great things about Killer Joe. Haven't otherwise seen enough of the guy's work to comment.

I've yet to see Following or Insomnia, but otherwise I've yet to watch a Nolan film I haven't enjoyed. That the key production staff are largely the same doesn't bother me - although this will be his first film post Pfister, methinks - as he's working with, for the most part, a new and exceptionally talented cast. And the concept is as ambitious as ever.

Put me down for "will be attending"!

I don't know, he made me believe Sarah Jessica Parker could be attractive and sort out a guys troubles in failure to launch, and he showed Kate Hudson how hard it is to lose a guy in ten days. And he made me believe that Tivo was the be all and end all of an actors world in Tropic Thunder.

And he stole the Wolf of Wall Street trailer.

Looks interesting, although not much of the film is revealed.

And going back to august, I have to say that I think MM is a very good actor who got pigeonholed for a lot of his career. Whenever he tests himself and moves outside of films where he's leaning against something/someone in the poster he tends to excel.

Saw the Trailer just before Godzilla today. Looks good, although I didn't get actual tingles until Nolan's name came up.

This was a good old-fashioned hard SF film like they haven't made in years. Undeniably gorgeous. Lots of math and science. A very good, intelligent, beautiful film that I will very likely never feel moved to watch again.

I really loved that movie. It was a slow burn that took a while to get going, but once it did it hooked me more and more. I'm not a guy who gets emotional over things very often, but every dramatic scene got to me time after time. Terrific acting all around.
