Ahead of Interstellar's launch, here's a selection of 10 underappreciated sci-fi films about space travel...
Christopher Nolan's Interstellar wears many of its influences proudly. The director has openly said that his film is inspired by such acclaimed pieces of cinema as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Philip Kaufman's The Right Stuff, as well as the human warmth of Steven Spielberg's 80s output. Interstellar depicts a near future where life on Earth teeters on the brink of extinction. Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a former test pilot turned farmer, joins a last-ditch mission to enter a wormhole in space and find a new home for humanity; he realises that the only way to save his family is to leave it behind.
It's the latest film to tap into our fascination with the depths of space - a topic that has been explored many times since the earliest days of cinema. »
It’s not long till political thriller Colonia Dignidad hits cinemas, but you can get a sneak peak ahead of its release with this image. This still shows Emma Watson in a tense scene with Mikael Nyqvist (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol).
Colonia Dignidad follows young German couple Lena (Watson) and Daniel (Daniel Brühl), who get caught up in the 1973 Chilean coup. When Daniel is kidnapped by Pinochet’s secret police and bundled off to a secret detention centre, Lena must track him down and try to rescue him. Although the centre operates as a “charitable mission” run by a preacher (Nyqvist), this is just a front. The only way for Lena to infiltrate the prison is to sign up to the creepy cult. We assume this might be the scene above?

The first image from director Florian Gallenberger’s thriller Colonia has been released, giving us our first look at Emma Watson in the film. Based on the true story of the Colonia Dignidad, the film revolves around a young couple, played by Watson and Daniel Brühl, who become entangled in the Chilean military coup of 1973. When Brühl’s character is abducted by the secret police, Watson’s character tracks him down to a sealed off area in the South known as Colonia Dignidad that is inhabited by a cult, lead by Mikael Nyqvist’s Paul Schäfer. She subsequently joins the cult in order to find her husband. This is certainly a very different kind of film for Watson, and indeed this first look image teases a rather tense relationship between her character and Nyqvist’s. Production recently wrapped in Luxembourg and now moves on to Germany before finishing up in South America later this year. »

Fresh off his bloody beating in Keanu Reeves’ gun-fu action movie “John Wick,” Deadline announced that Mikael Nyqvist has joined the cast of Florian Gallenberger's directorial debut “Colonia.” With the announcement comes the first still to make its way off the active set, a rather creepy glimpse at Emma Watson’s next role. Breathe, “Harry Potter” Tumblr contingent! It’s just a movie. As reported last month, Watson and Daniel Brühl star as a young German couple who find themselves swept up in the Chilean military coup of 1973. Abducted by When Pinochet’s secret police abduct Daniel (Brühl), Lena (Watson) follows his trail to “Colonia Dignidad,” a charitable mission run by a lay preacher (Nyqvist). Or she thinks it’s a charitable. Turns out the sealed-off village is part prison, part cult commune. No one who enters leaves. Thus, the face-holding in the still above. Gallenberger makes the jump »

Majestic Filmproduktion has provided us with our first look at Colonia, a period drama that takes place during the harrowing Chilean military coup of 1973.
In it, we see Emma Watson’s Lena, a young Germany woman who seeks to rescue her husband Daniel after he is abducted by the covert police of General Pinochet during the height of political upheaval, going up against Mikael Nyqvist’s religious nut, Paul Schäfer — the same Mikael who played Mikael Blomkvist in the Swedish rendition of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
As it happens, Daniel (played here by Daniel Brühl of Rush fame) has been transported to Colonia Dignidad, an infamous anti-communist locale where a dangerous and nefarious cult thrives. In order to save her wayward husband, Watson’s character is forced to assimilate herself into said cult and bear the brunt of the aforementioned Schäfer — as this first still so chillingly depicts. »
