Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is finally in theaters. As most of you know, Nolan wrote the screenplay based on a previous draft by his brother, Jonathan Nolan (The Dark Knight). The story finds a crew of astronauts led by Matthew McConaughey setting off into deep space in order to find a new planet that might be inhabitable. Loaded with a great cast (Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, David Oyelowo, Wes Bentley, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace, David Gyasi, Mackenzie Foy, Bill Irwin, and Timothee Chalamet) and amazing visuals, Interstellar should be seen on the biggest screen possible. If you have an IMAX theater near you, I strongly suggest seeing it in that format. For more on the film, watch these featurettes, clip, or click here for all our coverage.
At the recent Los Angeles press day I was able to participate in a press conference with Christopher Nolan, Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, co-writer Jonathan Nolan, producer Emma Thomas, and Jessica Chastain. They talked about the experience of making the film, how the project came together, how much the script change once Nolan replaced Steven Spielberg as director, writing a science fiction movie with so much hope, working in the space suits, space exploration, if there were any deleted scenes, the involvement of NASA, and so much more. Hit the jump for what they had to say.
