Review: Interstellar

7 hours ago | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Christopher Nolan thinks big. There’s little question he has an impressive imagination and his body of work speaks to those larger issues. Often writing with his brother Jonathan, they have produced a series of films with a polish and gravitas that few other big budget spectacles can match.

And yet…

And yet, in almost every case, the lapses in story logic rob the movie of its power so you always walk out of the theater shaking your head in bewilderment. The great ideas and execution found in Memento and again in Inception are spoiled in his other films, notably The Dark Knight Rises. Such was the case with Interstellar, coming to home video via Paramount Home Entertainment this Tuesday. The larger theme of where we do go when we ruin the Earth beyond repair is a timely one as more and more reports indicate this is the century we hit the ecological tipping point. »

Exclusive Q&A with ‘Nightlight’ Filmmakers Scott Beck & Bryan Woods

9 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Nightlight is available starting today on VOD and in theaters, and we caught up with directors Scott Beck & Bryan Woods to discuss urban legends and their unique approach to Pov filmmaking:

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us. Can you tell our readers what brought the two of you together for Nightlight?

Beck/Woods: We’ve actually known each other since we were 11, and we’ve been making movies together as long as we’ve been friends. Throughout middle school and high school we made dozens of shorts and no-budget features, which really taught us the craft of filmmaking. We never formally studied film production aside from consuming DVD features and commentaries (“That Moment” on the Magnolia DVD is beyond inspirational), so we always refer to those early years as our “film school” experience. Since then we’ve constantly co-written and co-directed all of our works, including a »

Book Review: Interstellar – Beyond Time And Space

12 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Titan Books have been producing quality ‘The Making Of…’ coffee-table books for a while and now they’ve utterly upped their game with Mark Cotta Vaz’s Interstellar: Beyond Time and Space. The book looks deep inside Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi exploration with boundless access to filmmakers, set designers, cast and crew to create an amazing insight in the process.

Interstellar as a movie is both complex and accessible, so it’s important for a title like this to give you as much as the film does. If any aspect of Nolan’s work and delving into his ideas and processes interests you, then you’re already in the right place to quench that creative thirst.

Spanning over 153 A4-size pages, there’s no holding back with information alongside deconstruction of the story, sets and real reasons why the cast and crew wanted to be involved and make it look as perfect as possible. »

Ben Mendelsohn Rumored For Star Wars: Rogue One

26 March 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After stunning Netflix subscribers worldwide with his powerhouse turn in the first season of star-studded drama Bloodline, Aussie actor Ben Mendelsohn certainly appears to be on the rise. And now, after a career of strong supporting performances, he could be about to get his big break: Deadline reports that he may be joining the cast of Star Wars: Rogue One.

Details on the first Star Wars spinoff, which will be directed by Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards and boasts a script by Chris Weitz (Cinderella) and Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli), are pretty sparse. Oscar nominee Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) has bagged the lead role, but rumors suggesting that the pic will be a heist movie revolving around bounty hunters who steal blueprints for a Death Star are still unconfirmed.

Regardless, it’s exciting to hear that Mendelsohn is on the cusp of landing a major studio role like this. »

Explore the Interstellar Movie Science at New Website as Blu-ray and DVD Release Date Nears

25 March 2015 8:21 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Confused by some of the overwhelming scientific jargon and explanations in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine? If so, you are from alone.

The mathematical reasoning behind the events of Interstellar confused many moviegoers this past holiday season, and that's why Paramount and Warner Bros. rightfully felt a micro-website dedicated to the Interstellar movie science was an appropriate way to promote the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release.

Dubbed the "Bite Size Science" micro-site, this single-page basket of Interstellar movie science lesson snippets delves into everything from black holes to towering tidal waves to the spacecraft seen in the film. It uses illustration more so than verbiage as to get the point across in the most simplistic terms possible.

My recommendation is to not read the entire site until after watching Interstellar at least once. Outright narrative spoilers aren't present but some smaller surprises are openly discussed. »

Ben Mendelsohn Rumored For A Role In ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’

25 March 2015 5:20 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

How much do we know about “Star Wars: Rogue One”? Well, not that much, and none of the rumors have been confirmed. We know it’s a “Star Wars” spin-off film, we know “Godzilla” director Gareth Edwards is helming, Felicity Jones (“Theory Of Everything”) stars and Chris Weitz ("Twilight: New Moon") and Gary Whitta have the main writing credits. Everything else — rumors of a bounty hunter movie centered around stealing plans to build the Death Star — are pretty much just conjecture at this point. But Deadline brings an interesting casting bit to light tonight. Ben Mendelsohn might be joining the cast. That’s all they got, but it’s intriguing because Ben Mendelsohn makes everything better. That should be a Hollywood axiom and while it’s not quite yet, in the circles of some of our greatest working filmmakers and actors it is. Mendelsohn’s been tapped by Christopher Nolan »

Confirmed: Steven Spielberg directing Ready Player One

25 March 2015 2:25 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It'll be Steven Spielberg, not Christopher Nolan, who'll be bringing Ernest Cline's Ready Player One to the big screen....

Crikey. Ernest Cline's novel, Ready Player One, is pretty much nerd gold for anyone who grew up playing 1980s videogames in particular. And for some time we've known that a movie of it is on the way, that Zak Penn has been penning the script for.

Earlier this year, a rumour did the rounds that Christopher Nolan was the leading candidate to bring the book to the screen. Yet Nolan isn't the director that Warner Bros has trusted with the project. Instead, it's Steven Spielberg.

Spielberg's slate is not empty right now, given that he's finishing up the thriller Bridge Of Spies (starring Tom Hanks, due in October), and then is bringing Roald Dahl's The Bfg to the screen (starring Mark Rylance) for summer 2016. Yet it's not unknown »

10 Ways Lost Was Almost Completely Changed

25 March 2015 2:13 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

ABC

Lost was a necessary sacrifice. Much like how we suffered through the total mess of Batman And Robin to get the gritty reboot of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight films, or how your town will sacrifice a virginal Catholic police man in a giant wicker effigy to ensure a good harvest in the coming year, Lost died on its feet so that many more could live. But at least it burnt brightly and loudly before then.

Ultimately, nobody was particularly happy with how Lost turned out. Fans who had been tuning into ABC’s hit mystery series from the very beginning didn’t get all the answers they wanted, and the few they were granted access to were far from satisfying. By that point they’d gone through so many plot twists and time travel shenanigans that they were few and dedicated compared to the blockbuster viewership it had at the start. »

Steven Spielberg Heading Back to Big Sci-Fi with 'Ready Player One'

25 March 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last year, we heard that Warner Bros. wanted Christopher Nolan to be at the helm of their adaptation of the acclaimed sci-fi novel Ready Player One. But coincidentally enough, it will be the director who was once supposed to be at the helm of Interstellar behind the camera for the anticipated project. Deadline has learned that none other than iconic filmmaker Steven Spielberg is set to direct the film based on the novel of the same name by Ernie Cline that follows a teenager on an elaborate digital treasure hunt in 2044 to win the fortune left behind in the will of the creator of his favorite virtual reality game, Oasis. This is awesome! In the story, the boy faces unique challenges as there are powerful corporations and other competitors out on the hunt, and they're ruthless in pursuing the ultimate prize. But perhaps the inheritance turns out to be something »

Steven Spielberg Will Direct 'Ready Player One'

25 March 2015 1:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Steven Spielberg has signed on to direct the adaptation Ready Player One for Warner Bros. Back in December, we reported that Warner Bros. was courting a number of high-profile directors, such as Christopher Nolan, Robert Zemeckis, Peter Jackson, Edgar Wright and Matthew Vaughn to take on this adaptation of Ernest Cline's novel of the same name, but Steven Spielberg wasn't mentioned in that report. Deadline reports that this project will likely be the director's next movie, after he finishes his Roald Dahl adaptation The Bfg, which is slated for release next July.

Ready Player One centers on a teenager named Wade Watts, who becomes obsessed with a virtual reality world known as Oasis, that allows players to live out their fantasies. After the game's creator suddenly dies, an elaborate treasure hunt is held within the Oasis world, with the winner emerging to take control of the entire company. This »

Steven Spielberg Will Direct Ready Player One, Get The Details

25 March 2015 12:43 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Fans of Ernest Cline's 80s-nostalgic video game adventure story Ready Player One have been waiting for word on movement of the anticipated feature adaptation, which has been in development for quite a while now. Today, a major update to the film has been made in the form of confirmation that the movie will be directed by Steven Spielberg. THR posted the news, stating that Spielberg is set to helm the Ready Player One movie after he finishes up with the adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Bfg. Back in June of 2014, we learned that Zak Penn was adapting Ernest Cline's novel for Warner Bros. planned adaptation. From there, updates weren't frequent. But a few months back, there was talk of Christopher Nolan possibly directing the film. And that's the last we heard until today's update, which attaches Spielberg to the project.

Steven Spielberg to Direct Ready Player One

25 March 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ready Player One is an entertaining book that would make for a terrific film if not for licensing headaches. The story takes place in 2044 and revolves around the poverty-stricken Wade Watts, who’s only escape is trying to solve a decades old game from the late James Halliday creator of the worldwide, virtual reality space, Oasis. Working along the lines of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, if Wade can progress through the Vr game, he gets to own Oasis, which is pretty much the equivalent of owning the Internet. The trick to beating the game is to figure out how to decipher the clues that are rooted in Halliday’s love of 1980s pop culture. And that’s where a movie gets tricky. In his book, author Ernest Cline could pack in 80s references to his heart’s content (sometimes to the detriment of the story; at points it »

Steven Spielberg to Direct Sci-Fi Film ‘Ready Player One’

25 March 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Steven Spielberg looks to have found his next movie, having attached himself to direct the bigscreen adaptation of “Ready Player One” for Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow.

Ernest Cline penned the popular sci-fi novel, an adaptation of which the studio has been trying to get off the ground for some time with everyone from Robert Zemeckis to Christopher Nolan showing interest at one time or another.

Donald De Line, Dan Farah and Kristie Macosko Krieger will also produce.

Zak Penn wrote the script.

The novel, published in 2011, is set in a not-too-distant future where advanced Internet, gaming and virtual reality technologies have changed the world as we know it and led to the creation of the Oasis, a virtual reality universe that people live in and value more than the real world.

Jesse Ehrman and Racheline Benveniste will oversee for the studio.

Interstellar Blu-ray Review

25 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Christopher Nolan

Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, John LithgowTimothée ChalametMackenzie Foy, Ellen Burstyn, and Matt Damon

Certificate: 12

Run Time: 168 minutes

Special Features: Over 3 hours of extras and for details of them, plus the limited edition Digi-book, click here.

For me, the stamp of a great movie is how much your excitement, or self-induced hype, matches positively with the final product and in the case of Interstellar, it captures those desires with absolute assurance.

Love or dislike Nolan’s increasingly extensive films, you’ve got to accept that original work on such an expansive level to a worldwide audience is a Hollywood rarity these days. There’s definitely a growing universe of independent projects being backed by the offshoots of large movie corporations but Nolan and his brother have managed once again, like Inception, to pull off one hell of »
