Matthew McConaughey on Another World in New 'Interstellar' Poster

16 September 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following yesterday's awesome Poster Posse collection from Blurppy for this fall's release of Interstellar from director Christopher Nolan, an official poster from Paramount Pictures has debuted online. This one is a little more conventional as it merely shows Matthew McConaughey on another world, which we've seen glimpsed in the most recent trailer for the film as well. Some think that the most recent trailer showed too much, but considering it's all out of context and a Nolan movie has never been spoiled by trailers, it shouldn't be anything to worry about. Could we get one more trailer before the release? We'll see. Here's the latest official poster for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar from Empire: Watch the most recent trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar right here! Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the films Doodlebug, Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises. »

‘Westworld’ has the potential to be TV’s next great event

31 August 2014 1:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A year ago this week it was announced that Jonathan Nolan will act as showrunner and writer alongside Lisa Joy on a new HBO series based on Michael Crichton’s book and cult classic film Westworld. Busiest man in the world J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot cohorts Bryan Burk and Jerry Weintraub will also produce the new series. Variety reported that the HBO rendition of Westworld is described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.”

Something must have happened to Crichton at a theme park in his youth because Westworld is his first of two theme park disaster stories, the second being Jurassic Park. Westworld is the story of a Disney World-like park with multiple themed sections inhabited by lifelike androids that allow guests to act out their wildest fantasies. Of course there is a malfunction and the robots go rogue. »

In a matter of weeks, HBO's TV series reinvention of Michael Crichton's classic 1970s film "Westworld" has become one of the hottest small screen projects in development.

The sheer amount of talent attached to the Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy-scripted project is astonishing - Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Evan Rachel Wood, Miranda Otto, and Rodrigo Santoro and more have all signed onboard.

So what is it about this story of adult amusement park populated by lifelike robots that's not just drawing them in but getting them to sign multiyear deals? The Live Feed may have found one answer.

According to their sources, the androids in the film can be killed off and return with completely different personas. As a result, actors are allowed to play many characters in the same season.

HBO programming president Michael Lombardo says: "This is built as a series and, »

Trailer Trashin’: Christopher Nolan Launches Into Space with Interstellar

20 August 2014 9:27 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hello again, dear readers. There are only two weeks left in August, and the summer movie season has started winding down. With that in mind, it’s time to start looking ahead to what’s coming out in the fall and winter. And this week’s Trailer Trashin’ examines what looks like a very promising November release – Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi film Interstellar.

Premise: When a wormhole – which theoretically can connect widely-separated regions of space – is discovered, explorers and scientists unite to embark on a voyage through it, transcending the limits of human space travel. Among the travelers is Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a widowed engineer who decides to leave behind his two children to join the voyage with the goal of saving humanity.

My take: It’s strange to think that it’s been almost ten years since Batman Begins (2005) came out, and British filmmaker Christopher Nolan went from »
