BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Nolan is expected to be at the forefront of the theatrical-presentation conversation when his sci-fi drama Interstellar reaches multiplexes in November. Ahead of that curve, the filmmaker took to the Wall Street Journal for a fascinating, sobering conversation about the state of modern cinema and the direction of the major studios.
Given that it comes to us from the brain behind Inception, anything is possible. By suggesting that mankind isnít supposed to die on earth, does this mean that Matthew McConaughey will be colonizing a new location, and that the denizens of our doomed planet are going to have to move there, somehow?
Christopher Nolan is without question one of the biggest directors in modern Hollywood. First breaking out at the turn of the century with Memento, the filmmaker has spent the last 14 years making epic, thought provoking movies on various scales and has earned both critical and box office love.
So Nolanís film will be released in November in both film and digital. We know that Nolan filmed chunks of his movie with IMAX cameras, but itís unlikely heíll allow any parts of his film to convert to 3D (though the idea of taking a trip through a wormhole in Nolanís film in 3D would sell millions of tickets).
Ever since The Dark Knight, director Christopher Nolan has been seen as a hardcore advocate of IMAX technology - particularly over the widespread use of 3D. Because of the filmmaker's prior usage of IMAX cameras on both The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, it was no surprise when it was announced that he would once again be using the larger format film making his latest project, the sci-fi epic Interstellar.
Over the years we've seen many different actors put on the Batsuit and become Batman for a live-action feature, from Adam West to Michael Keaton to George Clooney, but few have done the classic comic book superhero justice quite like Christian Bale. Not only was his performance in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy considered by many to be the best on-screen portrayal of the character...
The story centers on a woman named Mary Jargo (Arterton). As a means to get away from her psychotic ex-boyfriend (Roth), she takes a job housesitting in Regent Park - one of the most snobbish areas of the city - and while doing so begins to help and feed the homeless people who live nearby, as nobody else in the neighborhood will.
But beyond that, weíve been left little clues about what Nolan has planned for Interstellar. But with the sci-fi mystery now in production, Nolanís secrets are beginning to spill!
As with every single other person who has joined the cast, there's no details on which role Damon might play, and it's worth noting that there's no confirmation from a studio or personal reps in The Playlist's report, so it's entirely possible this won't happen.What's curious, though, is how Damon could possibly find room for a role in a film that clearly already has its main cast in place.
Based on the work of CalTech physicist Kip Thorne (who is also working as a consultant on the film as well as an executive producer), the movie is about a group of explorers who discover a wormhole that could completely change the future of human space flight and interstellar travel.
The casting derby has been completed, the very vague plot synopsis finalized, and the real work is finally ready to begin. Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, which is looking like the most ambitious original sci-fi project in a market that's full of them, has finally started production
Interstellar is due for release on November 7, 2014, which puts Nolan and his team on a pretty short timeline to assemble what sounds like a special effects-heavy effort, complete with Nolan's customary stunning IMAX photography. Feel free to place your bets on when we'll actually know what role any of these people are playing in the film
Wes Bentley, still most famous for his monologue about that plastic bag in American Beauty, is lining up a significant enough stream of blockbusters that we might start remembering him for something else. Following up on his appearance as Seneca Crane in The Hunger Games last year, Bentley has now booked a role in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar; according to The Hollywood Reporter, he's the final member of the cast to get locked in place
Details about the story are slim at this point, but it's been said that the movie will follow a team of explorers who travel through a wormhole to another dimension. Jonathan Nolan, Christopher's brother, wrote the original screenplay, which Christopher rewrote and merged with pre-existing idea he had when he came aboard to direct.
As you might guess, a bunch of extras are included with the set as well. There will be two brand-new featurettes, one of them about the impact of the trilogy and one of them, unbelievably, with Christopher Nolan and Superman director in conversation. Though you probably don't have to go far to find people who were influenced by The Dark Knight, the first featurette includes interviews with the likes of Guillermo del Toro
