'Interstellar' Interactive Website Updated with Hidden Clues

18 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. has updated the official website for their highly-anticipated sci-fi thriller Interstellar, following director Christopher Nolan and star Matthew McConaughey's surprise appearance at Comic-Con 2014 last week. In typical Christopher Nolan fashion, the website offers more questions than answers, although it allows users to explore a key setting in the movie in a rotating 360-degree environment, along with messages such as "Look Around," and "The Answer Is Above Us." When the site first loads, you can also see a space shuttle launch into the sky in the background, which is presumably the shuttle that carries out the mission in the film. Click on the image below to check out the site for yourself, then read on to learn about the clues that have already been uncovered.

The readers at NolanFans.com have uncovered that there are a number of seemingly-random pulsating lights in the sky at night, with the »

Find Out When You Can See Interstellar's Newest Trailer

28 July 2014 8:07 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Out of all of the news to come out of this year's Comic-Con, perhaps the biggest surprise was Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey making an unexpected appearance in Hall H during the Paramount Pictures presentation to promote their film Interstellar. Perhaps you've heard of it: it's a small indie film about reaching beyond our solar system to save the human race? Obscure stuff, I know. Anyhow, with their visit they brought a brand new trailer that showed off more of the film's visuals, as well as its thematic components. Everyone in the crowed oohed and aahed, and the rest of us on the outside were left to wonder just when we'd get to see what blew everyone's minds. Thankfully, Warner Bros and Paramount are a little more generous than Marvel Studios, as their Comic-Con footage will be hitting screens this weekend! Starting this Friday with Guardians Of The Galaxy, Interstellar »

Comic-Con 2014: Hollywood’s Highs, Lows and No-Shows

28 July 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the place where Hollywood now launches the marketing campaigns around its upcoming films, TV shows and videogames — like “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” to smaller films like “The Giver” and “Horns,” along with new and returning TV shows “Game of Thrones,” “Flash” and “Gotham” — this year’s Comic-Con revealed the runaway successes and upcoming headaches for the industry’s marketers.

Here are the biggest takeaways from the fanfest that wrapped Sunday:

“Jupiter” Descending: Warner Bros. had a bigger problem beyond the need to complete special effects sequences when it made a last minute decision to move sci-fi actioner “Jupiter Ascending” from the summer to February 2015: a lack of interest in the movie. A trip to San Diego’s Comic-Con won’t help. A presentation in which star Channing Tatum’s mic didn’t work and the Wachowski siblings weren’t present, »

It’s certainly the darling of this year’s Con. »

Career Watch: TV Provides Stepping Stone to Film for Edgy Emmy Nominees Dreyfuss, Driver, Louis C.K.

28 July 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

These days, a movie star can easily make the switch to TV with no loss of stature.  In fact, Matthew McConaughey’s acclaimed work on the HBO series “True Detective” probably helped to seal the deal on his Oscar win for “Dallas Buyers Club.” But taking the leap from TV to film? That’s an iffier proposition. Just because someone is popular on a small screen doesn’t mean they will have the same impact at the multiplex. And audiences often have a problem accepting a lead of a long-running series as a different character. Here are three actors – all competing for Emmys when this year’s ceremony airs on Aug. 25 – who have had varying degrees of success with conquering film.  Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 53, lead actress in a comedy series for HBO’s “Veep” Signature line:  “Only that it sucked.” – Louis-Dreyfus as Elaine Benes, replying when asked what was bad about »

Ten Best: Movies to get excited for in the second half of 2014

26 July 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

2014 has already seen some very good films released, with the likes of Boyhood, The Fault in Our Stars, X-Men: Days of Future Past and others doing great business and turning heads in the process. The remainder of 2014 will also see a large number of film releases, and some of those are highly intriguing. Let’s take a look at ten of the films that I, personally, am excited for in the second half of 2014.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Director, James Gunn, tasselled my hair playfully when he put a little independent film named “Super” on the table in 2010, an underrated Rainn Wilson fronted comedy drama about a guy who thinks that god is telling him to fight crime. When I heard that Gunn was bringing his sense of humour and action to Guardians of the Galaxy my interest hit a high note. With a cast including the enjoyable everyman Chris Pratt »

'The Walking Dead' Premieres New Season 5 Trailer At Comic-Con

25 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

The Walking Dead premiered the first trailer for season 5 and announced that the hit show’s newest season will premiere Sunday, Oct. 12, at 9 p.m. on AMC.

One other big announcement concerning the upcoming season: executive producer Dave Alpert officially confirmed that Seth Gilliam (The Wire, Teen Wolf) would be joining the cast to play Father Gabriel Stokes. Despite the exciting casting news, the main reveal of the Comic-Con panel was the first, full-length, season 5 trailer.

The trailer makes the season’s main goal clear: “When we get to Washington, we will make the dead die and the living will have this world again.”

Showrunner Scott Gimple promised the crowd at Comic-Con that this season would explore the story of Terminus, the gang that kidnaped most of The Walking Dead’s beloved team of zombie killers.

New trailer for Chris Nolan's 'Interstellar' shows off the strong '2001' influence

25 July 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey took the stage of Hall H on Thursday afternoon, it was a genuine surprise to most people in the room. As it turns out, it was a pleasant surprise for the studio as well, who weren't sure it was going to happen until very early Thursday morning. If they had not been there, the new trailer for the movie would have had to speak for itself, and I suspect it would have been fine. Instead, the director and the star did a nice job of setting the table for the trailer, which should be in theaters soon, and presumably online as well. What I love already about the film is the idea that it is ultimately about how we've lost our explorer's spirit as a people. I think it is one of the most discouraging things about modern life. When I was young, I »

See the Mission Patch from 'Interstellar' Given Out at Comic-Con

25 July 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We don't officially have a category for "swag", but this falls into that classification. As a big space nerd and sci-fi lover, I can't help but share this nifty bit of swag from Comic-Con that I picked up today. During the Paramount panel yesterday, where they surprised fans in Hall H by bringing out Interstellar director Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey (read our full recap of that panel), the studio handed out tickets to be redeemed for a "prize". That prize? The mission patch from Interstellar, for the "Endurance" Space Exploration mission. It's small piece of swag, it's nerdy, but it's also kind of awesome. In full below. Here's the mission patch that was handed as a prize for those who were at Paramount's Comic-Con panel. Recap our coverage of Interstellar at Comic-Con here, including quotes from Nolan and McConaughey. Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the films Doodlebug, »

San Diego Comic-Con Review: Found Footage Time Travel Movie 'Project Almanac'

25 July 2014 12:49 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey's appearance in Hall H wasn't the only surprise aspect of Paramount's lengthy San Diego Comic-Con panel yesterday. It was also announced, after a brief clip was shown, that "Project Almanac," the Michael Bay-produced found footage time travel movie, would also be screened for select attendees. We were able to attend the screening and, while it doesn't exactly blaze a new trail, the movie is smart and knowingly acknowledges both its place in the time travel subgenre and its formal limitations as a found footage movie. That self-awareness makes it fun and silly and, yes, kind of stupid, but in ways that are mostly enjoyable and forgivable. David Raskin (Jonny Weston) is a high school senior and a scientific genius. When the movie begins, we're watching the application video that David is submitting to MIT. He awkwardly addresses the camera as he moves around »

Nolan, McConaughey Talk "Interstellar"

25 July 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Without question, the biggest surprise at Thursday afternoon's San Diego Comic Con panel for Paramount Pictures was the appearance of actor Matthew McConaughey and director Christopher Nolan on the stage to talk up their sci-fi film "Interstellar".

Both Comic Con virgins, the appearance was kept a surprise and both talked up the film along with premiering a world exclusive trailer for the project which included new scenes such as one showing the spaceship crew touching down on an ice planet.

Nolan says he grew up fascinated by space travel and hopes a film like this will re-inspire the desire for exploration: "It’s been a time of incredible technological change but it’s more about what’s in your pocket. I hope we are on the cusp of a brand new era of exploration and looking outwards more. For me the thrill of trying to make a large-scale sci-fi film »

9 best moments from Benedict Cumberbatch's Comic-Con debut

25 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Yesterday (July 24) was a day full of firsts at Comic-Con 2014. Aside from being the first day of the con overall, it also marked the Sdcc debuts of several big-name stars - among them Matthew McConaughey, Christopher Nolan and some chap called Benedict Cumberbatch.

Thursday is typically the quietest and least busy day in Hall H, and yet this year on Wednesday night there were already fans camping out to guarantee their spot the next morning. The reason? Cumberbatch, who was to take part in DreamWorks' presentation for the upcoming Penguins of Madagascar.

And the man himself did not disappoint, showing up on dapper, witty and insightful form. Below, Digital Spy rounds up the best moments from Cumberbatch's Comic-Con debut.

1) "You exist?" were his first words to the shrieking crowd of fans as he arrived onstage, who were making their existence very demonstrably known.

Screen Talk Report from Halls of Comic-Con, 'The Giver' and Other Oscar Possibilities

25 July 2014 9:49 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Every year I approach the trip to Comic-Con in San Diego with equal measures of anticipation and dread. Why? It's huge, crowded, stressful and crammed with the best and worst of pop culture. I talk about it with Indiewire critic Eric Kohn on our weekly podcast, sitting cross-legged on the floor outside Hall H between panels with my laptop, holding my snowball mic. It's a shorter podcast than usual as I had to run into the next panel, Paramount--where Chris Nolan and Matthew McConaughey made their first visit, a surprise, to the Con. Report here.  And yes I know that both "Penguins of Madagascar" and "How to Train Your Dragon 2" are sequels--and some animated sequels do well at the Oscars. It depends. "Toy Story 3" did well, obviously.  At iTunes you can subscribe to the podcast.   »

Emmy Episode Analysis: Matthew McConaughey ('True Detective') sees the light in 'Form and Void'

25 July 2014 9:38 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Matthew McConaughey is attempting to cap off an amazing year by winning the Emmy for Best Drama Actor for playing Detective Rust Cohle on "True Detective." McConaughey won an Oscar, Golden Globe, and SAG Award at the beginning of the year for "Dallas Buyers Club" and also won a Critics Choice TV Award for "Detective" earlier this summer. -Break- Not so fast, 'Breaking Bad': 'True Detective' may crush you at the Emmys Synopsis: Rust questions the former sheriff, Steve Geraci, about a cold case he's been puzzling over: the disappearance of a young girl named Marie Fontenot. After Rust shows him a video of the girl being sacrificed by cultists, Geraci admits that the previous sheriff, a man named Childress, covered up the incident. Rust then threatens to kill him if any harm comes to him or his partner Marty (fellow Drama Actor nominee Woody Harrelson). Later, Rust and Marty look into a small busi. »

Watch: 5-Minute Tribute To 'Wolf Of Wall Street' Plus Cardinals Player Goes To Bat With McConaughey Chest Thumps

25 July 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Yeah, we know. Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street" was released last year, and he's already in production on his HBO rock 'n' roll drama pilot, with lensing on his upcoming "Silence" (due in 2015) to follow. And yet it says something about just how much that film—one of the biggest worldwide hits of the filmmaker's career—has permeated pop culture that it can still spur interest this far along. Certainly, Frank Perez is still captivated with the movie, putting together a five-minute (and probably Nsfw) tribute reel to the film that highlights the dizzying peaks and debauchery-fueled lows of the Jordan Belfort biopic. And perhaps even more interesting, St. Louis Cardinals backup catcher Tony Cruz has selected Matthew McConaughey's infamous chest thump/chant from the film as his walk on music, and it's pretty weird to hear it over stadium loudspeakers. Check out both videos below. »
