Sneak Peek another new clip of footage from "The Dark Knight" director Christopher Nolan's upcoming science fiction feature "Interstellar", starring Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway:
The new film will "...travel the globe to bring to the screen the adventures of 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.
"'Interstellar' details the toll climate change has taken on agriculture, with corn the last crop to be cultivated.
"The scientists embark on a journey through a worm hole into other dimensions in search of somewhere other crops can be grown...".
"Interstellar" also stars Anne Hathaway, Bill Irwin, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck, David Gyasi, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Timothée Chalamet, Topher Grace, David Oyelowo, Ellen Burstyn and Michael Caine.

We've learned quite a bit over the course of the two Halloween episodes of American Horror Story: Freak Show. The mythical Edward Mordrake (guest star Wes Bentley) appears to recruit a member of the freak show for his own (dead) troupe, and a handful of characters campaign to join him by sharing their lowest moments via flashbacks. Horrible news: they're even lower than you might have imagined. Among the highlights, we find out how Elsa lost her legs and how Twisty became so, well, twisted. It really doesn't even matter if you watch the show; these are just some very interesting characters. Here's what we've learned so far! »
Matthew sure does get emotional whenever he drives his Lincoln...
Christopher Nolan's next film, Interstellar, is almost upon us. Until now, all we've gotten to work with are the various trailers and TV spots that have been released. But now, thanks to Time Magazine, we've got our first clip to look at.
It's an interesting clip, and one that gives a strong sense at the kind of morality and commentary that Nolan wants to tell with this story. The British director has often shown great fondness for using the larger-than-life premises of his film as metaphors for much more real-world ideas.
Mario-f. Robles NY Readers! My band, @theboomsection is having a big Halloween show tonight at @Blackthorn51. Here's the invite: https://t. »

I have a sneaking suspicion that thousands of American Horror Story fans are going to run out this morning and go to Jo-Ann Fabric, Michael’s Craft Store, and whatever shoe store is next to them in the mini-mall so that they can buy some lace, hot-glue-gun it to a mask, and then shine their knee-high boots. It’s an instant Elsa Mars costume that is far more flattering than her Life on Mars ensemble we’ve grown accustomed to.Alright, I have to give it to American Horror Story because this is the episode where it finally got good (but I’m going to leave some caveats at the end). The Edward Mordrake device of the two-headed Wes Bentley that rolled in so slowly like a glowing green mist last episode really sprung to life in part two of this Halloween double-feature. Mordrake visiting allows us to discover backstories »

American Horror Story: Freak Show “Edward Mordrake (Part 2)" opened up with the phantom two-faced Edward Mordrake (Wes Bentley) continuing on his mission to find the freak his second face wants him to collect for their ghoulish menagerie.
When Mordrake sits down to listen to Legless Suzi’s (Rose Siggins) tale, she informs him that she was born with a spinal condition that led to the doctors taking her legs. Her parents, wanting nothing to do with her in the height of the Great Depression, dropped her off at a children’s home. Suzi's darkest moment, according to her, was killing a man merely because he had the legs she’d never get to walk upon. As for Paul the Seal (Mat Fraser), he, like Elsa, had dreams of Hollywood and would steal away to the cinema to watch the stars in action. »
Although there were some serious let-downs in this week's episode of "American Horror Story: Freak Show," it serves as a reminder of just how far the show runners are willing to push past the boundaries of taste and sanity on basic cable. Of course, the Grand Guignol gore and straight-up weirdness is why most of us watch it, so kudos to everyone involved for making this episode the stuff of nightmares.
Spoilers start here. Let's get this show on the road.
Taking Off the Masks
This week's episode caps off, so to speak, the story of Edward Mordrake (Wes Bentley) and solves the mystery of who he was looking to take with him into the greenish fog. Edward, as directed by the demonic face on the back of his head, continues peppering each of the performers with questions about their deepest secrets and darkest shames, which is a cool narrative »

'Interstellar' movie review: 'Ravishing, but overextended mind-bender' (photo: Anne Hathaway in 'Interstellar') There are many intriguing questions raised in director Christopher Nolan's ravishing, overextended mind-bender Interstellar. One of the first: has a theoretical physicist ever received an executive producer credit on a nine-figure, studio movie? Probably not, but if 74-year old Caltech professor Kip Thorne were to find any director willing to tap his intellect for an above-the-line credit, it would be Nolan. His movies are puzzle boxes of plot and theme that have become grander in scope as they've become more opaque in effect. At this point, every Nolan film contains the moment when we ask ourselves if the director himself has completely thought everything through. That's certainly true of Interstellar, where the London-born director and his screenwriter brother Jonathan utilize Thorne's theories on relativity and gravitational physics to bandy about questions as deep »

Edward Mordrake isn't just looking for any old Freak Show performer on American Horror Story: Freak Show. No, in the exclusive clip above from "Edward Mordrake Part 2," Wes Bentley's character reveals he's looking for the perfect "grail" to take back to the beyond with him. "Before this night is through I will find my grail, one more pure freak to add to our unhappy number," he says in the preview above. Last week Edward Mordrake passed over Ethel (Kathy Bates) and this week it looks like he's making his rounds to Elsa Mars (Jessica Lange) and some other members of her troupe…including Legless Suzi (Rose Siggins)! In the first part of the Edward Mordrake saga, Elsa »
In co-writer and director Christopher Nolan’s vision of the future, it’s not the death of our planet’s vegetation that poses the greatest threat to humanity, but a lack of ambition. As crops fail and the Earth shrivels into a dust bowl, its inhabitants have stopped looking up at the stars with hope, and instead face their fate with a gloomy resignation. “We don’t need engineers,” a teacher tells Matthew McConaughey’s Cooper, a test pilot turned farmer, “we ran out of food.”
Nolan’s latest magnum opus, arguably his riskiest so far, is a grand meditation on exploration, loneliness, love and self-sacrifice. In the tradition of such weighty genre classics as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Solaris, this feels like the director’s own attempt to make what Arthur »

There’s no doubting that the new season of American Horror Story is the most frightening and perverse yet. While a number of creator Ryan Murphy’s actors — Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, and Evan Peters — have returned, the fourth iteration of the series has also featured a number of new faces. Among them are newcomer Finn Wittrock as the devilish man-child, Dandy Motts, Michael Chiklis as the freak show’s resident strong man, and Wes Bentley as the two-faced Edward Mordrake. While all three have made their own impact on Freak Show, none of them have been more severe than Twisty the Clown played by John Carroll Lynch.
“It’s great to play a character that is so starkly drawn, and it’s really fun to be a bad guy,” Lynch tells La Times. “In this case I really like that Ryan and the writers »

The stars aligned for the Hollywood premiere of “Interstellar” at the Tcl Chinese Theatre on Sunday, Oct. 26. Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and others joined Christopher Nolan to unveil Paramount’s highly anticipated (and closely guarded) sci-fi film, opening Nov. 5 in select theaters and nationwide on November 7.
Famously press-shy, director/producer/co-writer Nolan took photos and gave a few quotes on the red carpet before ducking into the theater with his wife Emma Thomas, also a producer on the film, letting his cast and collaborators do most of the talking.
Hathaway said people should expect to “have their minds bent and their hearts opened.”
In the film, Hathaway joins Matthew McConaughey’s character, Cooper, on an unprecedented mission with the bravest men and women alive in the hopes of saving humanity after Earth has become uninhabitable. But in order to do so, they must leave their families behind, unsure »

Interstellar’s November 7th release date is fast approaching and the early reviews are pouring in. The highly anticipated Christopher Nolan film stars Matthew McConaughey as Cooper, a former Nasa test pilot who is asked to join the Lazarus mission and leave Earth behind to find a new life-sustaining planet for mankind. There’s been talk of Interstellar being an Oscar contender and while there is high praise for the film all-around, it also seems as though “hokey contrivances” and “a ruptured script” could keep it from earning Nolan his first Academy Award win, or another nomination for that matter. Hit the jump for snippets from the early Interstellar reviews in circulation right now. The film also stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, David Oyelowo, Wes Bentley, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace, David Gyasi, Mackenzie Foy, Bill Irwin, Timothee Chalamet and Matt Damon.

Amplify has released the first The Better Angels trailer for writer/director A.J. Edwards’ poetic drama about the early life of Abraham Lincoln. From the opening seconds of this trailer, the film gives off a very strong Terrence Malick vibe, and indeed Malick produced the feature, as Edwards previously worked as an editor and second-unit director on some of Malick’s films. Beyond the obvious comparisons, the black-and-white film looks to be a rather haunting and lyrical drama about the early life of one of the most influential U.S. Presidents in history, and as a fan of the Malick style myself, I’m looking forward to seeing what the full feature has in store. Hit the jump to watch The Better Angels trailer. The film stars Braydon Denney, Jason Clarke, Brit Marling, Diane Kruger, and Wes Bentley. The Better Angels opens in limited release on November 7th.

Last week, I was one of the lucky first members of the press to lay eyes on Christopher Nolan’s new opus Interstellar. Now that the embargo has lifted, I can say without hesitation that it’s his best work to date, an absolutely enthralling and deeply moving science fiction drama that makes both your heart and your mind soar. More important than my thoughts though (which I’ll get into more below), is how its debut could impact the Oscar race. I know that only a few of my fellow pundits love it as much as I do and some aren’t even fans of it at all, but this is a legitimate contender folks. The only question is to what extent… For those somehow in the dark about this, Interstellar is a sci-fi movie set in the future from Christopher Nolan. It details a dying Earth and the »

Director: Christopher Nolan; Screenwriters: Jonathan Nolan, Christopher Nolan; Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Mackenzie Foy, Wes Bentley, Topher Grace, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, David Oyelowo; Running time: 166 mins; Certificate: 12A
What purpose does love serve? That's a question posed around the midway mark in Christopher Nolan's operatically ambitious Interstellar, but it's also an intriguing one to apply to the director's filmography. While he's far from a heartless filmmaker, Nolan has tended in the past to deploy emotion only in very particular ways. Love is a catalyst: it fuels vengeful rage (The Prestige and the Dark Knight trilogy) or self-destructive guilt (Memento, Inception), and it's largely futile, felt more often for the dead than for the living.
