Digital filmmaking has overtaken analog, but there are some directors who refuse to let film stock die out. And so Hollywood studios are stepping in to lend support to Kodak in its time of crisis.
This is the text you're reading in the time you could be watching the latest trailer for Interstellar. If you need another reason to click the link and watch this trailer, might we suggest Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey crying?
The powerhouse duo surprised crowds by showing up unannounced at the tail end of the Paramount panel in Hall H. Matthew McConaughey took the stage first, following a new Interstellar clip that largely relied on old newsreels of politicians (like John F. Kennedy), physicists (Neil Degrasse Tyson was spotted) and former astronauts (such as Buzz Aldrin) talking about risk being ďthe price of progressĒ and how our community used to take such pride in moments of human accomplishment.
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?
What do we actually know about Nolan's Interstellar movie so far? Who will star in it? How is it being filmed? We have answers.
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
