A collection of new Interstellar images from director Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi epic have landed online, hot on the heels of some pretty interesting comments from Nolan himself saying the film marks a specifically unique entry in his filmography.  Nolan wrote the screenplay for Interstellar based on a previous draft by his brother, Jonathan Nolan (The Dark Knight), and 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 habitable.  There seems to be plenty of culturally relevant themes at play here, as Interstellar’s Earth is one that has been rendered uninhabitable after years of pollution and destruction at the hands of, well, us.  Most interestingly, though, is the fact that Nolan is essentially telling a father/daughter story, and I’m curious to see how he grounds the film with this strong emotional center.

Hit the jump to take a look a these new Interstellar images, which thankfully don’t reveal too much.  The film also stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey AffleckMichael CaineDavid OyelowoWes BentlyJohn LithgowEllen BurstynTopher GraceDavid GyasiMackenzie FoyBill IrwinTimothee Chalamet, and Matt Damon.  Interstellar opens on film in 70mm IMAX and 35mm on November 5th and everywhere else on November 7th.

There have been a lot of Doctor Strange casting rumors over the last few months, but now there’s a new report claiming that Marvel is still assessing a short list and that that short list currently includes Jared Leto, Oscar Isaac, Matthew McConaughey, Ewan McGregor, Jake Gyllenhaal and Ethan Hawke.

Per usual, nothing is official and we must treat this as a rumor, but after those negotiations with Joaquin Phoenix broke down, it makes sense for the studio to take a step back and assess the other options.  Hit the jump for additional details on each one.

New INTERSTELLAR Trailer Says Goodbye to Our Solar System

We’ve been loading up on Interstellar promotional material lately and Paramount just topped it all off with an especially riveting new trailer.  Matthew McConaughey recently described the film as “the grandest adventure I think any of us will ever see on film,” and based on what we get in this promo, I’m inclined to agree.  We’ve been trying to put the pieces of the narrative together since day one and even though this trailer answers more questions and reveals more story information than ever, it winds up sparking so much more curiosity and intrigue in the process.  We caught a glimpse of it in one of those new TV spots, but the detail that still catches my eye is that robot walking around the planet with McConaughey’s character and his team.

Hit the jump to check it out for yourself in the brand new Interstellar trailer.  The film arrives in theaters in 35mm and 70mm IMAX on November 5th (click here to find out your closest film projection location) and everywhere else on November 7th, and also stars Anne HathawayJessica ChastainCasey AffleckMichael Caine, David OyelowoWes BentleyJohn LithgowEllen BurstynTopher GraceDavid GyasiMackenzie FoyBill IrwinTimothée Chalamet and Matt Damon.

INTERSTELLAR to Screen in Select Theaters Three Days Early?

by     Posted 21 days ago

interstellar-matthew-mcconaughey-slice

Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar isn’t scheduled to hit theaters until Friday, November 7th, but apparently some folks will be seeing it three days early because there are theaters in Los Angeles that are selling tickets to IMAX screenings beginning at 8:00pm on Tuesday, November 4th.

It’d make sense for Paramount to hold midnight showings the night before the big debut, but three days early is another story.  If this is the real deal, it’s surprising the studio hasn’t made an official announcement about this yet.  Hit the jump for more on these Interstellar early showings.  The film stars Matthew McConaugheyAnne HathawayJessica ChastainCasey AffleckMichael Caine, David OyelowoWes BentleyJohn LithgowEllen BurstynTopher GraceDavid GyasiMackenzie FoyBill IrwinTimothée Chalamet and Matt Damon.

4 New INTERSTELLAR TV Spots Released; Nolan Cities THE RIGHT STUFF, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, and 2001 as Influences

Remember when we hardly knew anything about Interstellar?  Good times.  Now we’re in the midst of the full-blown marketing blitz that will continue until the movie is released in a little over a month.  Thankfully, the marketing thus far hasn’t really given away anything about the plot other than the need to save mankind by finding a new home amongst the cosmos.  Beyond that, what we’ve really got is the tone of the movie, and we now have four new TV spots that contain new footage, but it doesn’t tell us much about the story.  For example, what’s that weird, walking monolith thing?  I don’t know, and I don’t want to know until I see the movie.

Hit the jump to check out the new Interstellar TV spots, and for what Christopher Nolan had to say about the movie’s influences.  The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica ChastainCasey AffleckMichael Caine, David OyelowoWes BentleyJohn LithgowEllen BurstynTopher GraceDavid GyasiMackenzie FoyBill IrwinTimothée Chalamet and Matt DamonInterstellar opens November 7th.

Matthew McConaughey Splashes Down in Another New INTERSTELLAR Poster

by     Posted 32 days ago

interstellar-movie-poster

Paramount Pictures continues its marketing campaign for Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated new film by unveiling yet another new Interstellar poster—the fourth such one-sheet of the week.  While the first two posters were a diptych of sorts, showing Matthew McConaughey on an ice planet and back on Earth, respectively, the third poster focused on space at large.  This fourth and presumably final poster (of this week, at least) sees McConaughey trekking through yet another uncharted planet, knee-deep in a liquid substance (water?) while the gorgeous heavens paint the sky above him.  I’m wary of seeing too much footage from the film before it hits theaters, so if Paramount wants to just continue releasing posters that tease the epic scope and locations of the film without getting into plot, that would be fine by me.

Take a look at the new Interstellar IMAX poster after the jump.  The film opens in 2D and IMAX on November 7th and also stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, David Oyelowo, Wes Bently, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace, David Gyasi, Mackenzie Foy, Bill Irwin, Timothee Chalamet, and Matt Damon.

Matthew McConaughey Will Not Be Back for MAGIC MIKE XXL, Movie is “Very Different”

This isn’t entirely unexpected, but we can put a big R.I.P. on the wishful thoughts that every Magic Mike cast member would be back for Magic Mike XXL.  Despite the global success of director Steven Soderbergh’s original film (the $7 million budget was rewarded with a $167 million worldwide gross), co-star Matthew McConaughey will not be returning.  I’m not too surprised since the sequel is already shooting and we hadn’t heard too much about his involvement.

Magic Mike XXL is being directed by Gregory Jacobs and will be shot by Peter Andrews (aka Steven Soderbergh) and edited by Mary Ann Bernard (aka Steven Soderbergh).  And don’t worry, it still stars Channing Tatum.  Hit the jump for more on Matthew McConaughey not coming back for Magic Mike XXL.

Matthew McConaughey Looks to the Stars in Another INTERSTELLAR Poster, While Brad Pitt Is Bruised in New FURY Poster

interstellar-poster-fury-poster

New posters for two of the most anticipated films of the year have arrived online.  Hot on the heels of yesterday’s icy one sheet, another new Interstellar poster grounds Matthew McConaughey on Earth in director Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi film.  It pairs nicely with yesterday’s space-set poster, and also focuses on what looks to be the emotional hook of the story: a father-daughter relationship.  I’m more than sold on this movie already, so now I’m just counting down the days until the pic’s November 7th release in both traditional theaters and IMAX.

We’ve also got a brand new poster for director David Ayer’s original World War II drama Fury.  The story revolves around a tank crew in the final days of the war, as they battle a desperate German army.  This new poster puts Brad Pitt front and center as the tank’s leader Wardaddy, while also providing a snapshot of the tank crew in its entirety.  It’s tad over-photoshopped, but the film remains one of my must-sees of the fall.  Fury also stars Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Pena, and Jon Bernthal and opens on October 17th.  Hit the jump to check out both posters.

New INSTERSTELLAR Poster Will Not Be the End of Us

Warner Bros. and Paramount have released a new Interstellar poster online.  The film stars Matthew McConaughey and revolves around 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.”  Like the teaser poster, the tagline is a mix of fatalism and optimism, and I’m curious to see if that will mirror the tone of the picture.  As for the shot of McConaughey in the spacesuit, his expression is inscrutable.  Is it determined?  Confused?  Hungry?  He’s a real actor now, so it’s layered.

Matthew McConaughey Embarks on an Existential Journey in First SEA OF TREES Image; Talks Working with Gus Van Sant

Interest was high in what Matthew McConaughey would choose as his next project following his one-two punch of Dallas Buyers Club and True Detective (ie. peak McConaissance).  Refreshingly, the actor once again opted to do something a bit different, signing on to lead director Gus Van Sant’s existential drama The Sea of Trees.  The first Sea of Trees image has now landed online, giving us our first look at McConaughey and Ken Watanabe in the context of the film, which follows a man who enters the “Suicidal Forest” in Mount Fuji with the intention of taking his own life.  When he is interrupted by a Japanese man who is having second thoughts about his own suicide, the two begin a journey of reflection and survival.  Sounds about right for the guy who brought Rust Cohle to life in such vivid detail.

Hit the jump to take a look at the first Sea of Trees image and to see what McConaughey had to say about working with Van Sant and the poetic nature of the film.  The Sea of Trees also stars Naomi Watts and is currently filming in Massachusetts before moving on to Japan.

INTERSTELLAR TV Spot Repurposes Old Trailer Footage to Remind You That This Movie Will Probably Be Good

by     Posted 56 days ago

interstellar-tv-spot

Warner Bros. has released a “new” Interstellar TV spot for writer/director Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi film.  The spot doesn’t actually contain any new footage, but instead just repurposes footage from the latest trailer in a new 60-second cut—and that’s fine by me.  Nolan usually does a fine job of keeping the major aspects of his films out of the trailers, but even The Dark Knight Rises wasn’t immune to WB’s need to show footage from the third act in the trailers leading up to its release.  Regardless, Interstellar certainly looks to be one hell of a moviegoing experience, and with this absolutely stacked cast onboard I can’t wait to see what Nolan has put together.

Allison and Adam Predict the 2014 Primetime Emmy Winners

emmy-predictions-2014

It was another fantastic year for television, and the 2014 Emmy nominations mostly captured that (…more or less). But when it comes to winners, the Emmys can be a wily beast, as seen in last year’s bevy of baffling wins (Jeff Daniels for NewsroomBobby Cannavale for Boardwalk Empire, among others).  Expect the expected with the Emmys, usually — unless they go completely off the wall.

This year, I have requested the expertise of Collider’s own Adam Chitwood to assist me with picks, not only because he closely follows the awards circuit year-round, he also has a much better track record than I do for picking awards winners in general.  Hit the jump for our guesses about how the results will play out and why in our 2014 Emmy predictions.  The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Seth Meyers, will air live on NBC Monday, August 25th at 8pm ET/5pm PT.
