Matthew McConaughey, Morse code, a book shelf, and a spaceship traveling through a spherical worm hole… What do those things have in common? Nothing, really. That is, unless, you’ve seen Interstellar, where all of those things are significant elements in Christopher and Jonathan Nolan’s spectacular sci-fi story. Artist Edgar Ascensão’s simple looking, mostly black and white posters inspired by the movie are deceivingly complex and layered with those important objects and imagery from the film. There are a few more things incorporated/hidden in the posters, but that would take us into heavy spoiler territory. Don't worry, I won't leave you hanging like the Nolans so expertly and joyfully do. I'll point them out below the bottom poster.
A couple other things Ascensão worked into the poster at the very top are the colored lines representing the fifth dimension, which Cooper (McConaughey) is able to navigate through in the film's climax. »

Filmmaker Christopher Nolan's Interstellar still has fans talking two weeks after first hitting theaters, with many continuing to overthink the ending. During an interview with The Daily Beast, the filmmaker shed some light on a pivotal scene.
There will be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
One of the biggest surprises for audiences was the reveal that Matt Damon portrays Dr. Mann, one of the original astronauts sent out during the Lazarus missions to find a new home for humanity. Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) and the rest of the Endurance crew head to Mann's planet because the data from beacon readings were promising, but they come to realize that Mann faked the data so he could be rescued. Mann ultimately attacks Cooper and leaves him to die, leaving to set up "Plan B" on Edmunds' planet.
When asked about Mann's motivations for this actions, Christopher Nolan had this to say. »
Whether you love him or hate him, filmmaker Christopher Nolan has continued to find new ways to challenge his audience, and paradigms of filmmaking as a whole, throughout his remarkable career. His breakout hit Memento shattered audiences' expectations of a traditional narrative story, while The Dark Knight trilogy redefined the superhero genre in ways nobody even knew they wanted, until they saw it with their very eyes. Inception proved that one does not need to induce hallucinogenic drugs to get the head trip of a lifetime, and even his more straight-forward films like Insomnia and The Prestige are exceptionally bold. Regardless of what you might think of his latest offering Interstellar, most will likely agree that Christopher Nolan has outdone himself, offering truly outstanding visuals coupled with a mind-shattering narrative that still has filmgoers talking weeks after opening day.
With all that being said, Interstellar, all 169 minutes of it, isn't »

Seven years after winning an Oscar for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose (2007), Marion Cotillard could land a second nomination for her role in Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne’s Two Days, One Night (Deux jours, une nuit), which is Belgium’s Oscar submission. She was also in 2013 Cannes selection The Immigrant, which was released in May of this year. Since La Vie en Rose, Cotillard has mainly worked on small indie films both inside and outside of America, with the exception of Christopher Nolan‘s Inception (2010) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012).
Cotillard was introduced to acting at a young age — her father was a director and her mother was an actress — and began her career acting in a variety of French TV shows and films. Her first Hollywood role was in Tim Burton‘s Big Fish (2003). She appeared »

For those of you still trying to wrap your brain around director Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, the filmmaker is filling in a certain aspect of the story line through a seven-page comic book that is currently available to read now at Wired.com.
Christopher Nolan himself wrote the comic, entitled Absolute Zero, which centers on Matt Damon's Dr. Mann and his robot Zapp. The comic explores a key moment in Mann's back story before he's introduced in the film, and will be a part of the November 25 issue of Wired Magazine, which the filmmaker is guest-editing.
The director has rarely released deleted scenes for any of his films, making this comic a rare companion piece. The director's science adviser on the film, Kip Thorne, has also released a book entitled The Science of Interstellar, but it does not go into plot points. Interstellar is already posting impressive numbers at the box office, »

The actor was joined by his wife and three children for the red carpet event.
He also picked up the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of AIDS patient Ron Woodroof in Dallas Buyers Club.
McConaughey is in line to star in American Civil War drama Free State of Jones.
He also recently threatened a return to romantic comedies.
If there was any doubt that the Oscar-season engine is roaring, events, Q&As, screenings and all that jazz is at a fever pitch — and it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet. Today’s big moment belonged to reigning Best Actor winner Matthew McConaughey, who got his star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame followed by a lavish lunch at Spago in Beverly Hills hosted by Paramount Chairman Brad Grey and attended by his Interstellar co-stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain (who was excited to sit next to Martin Landau and hear his Actors Studio stories) and Mackenzie Foy, along with director Christopher Nolan and producer/wife Emma Thomas and brother Jonathan, with whom he co-wrote the screenplay. Oh, and did I forget to mention Paramount also invited scores of Academy members to celebrate with Matthew? His family including kids and wife Camila Alves were at the ceremony, and Alves also came »

AMC Stubs members who have already seen the movie have an option to upgrade to the unlimited ticket at AMC.

Elizabeth Frank, executive vice president and chief content and programming officer, AMC Theatres, had this to say about the Unlimited Ticket in a statement.
Director Christopher Nolan's Interstellar is already a hit at the box office, taking in over $326 million worldwide after just one week in release. Despite the overwhelmingly positive reactions from fans and critics alike, the film has been taking some heat for its approach to the sound, with several fans complaining that many key lines of dialogue are difficult to hear. Questions have been raised about whether it's the director's fault, or the theaters, but the filmmaker revealed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that the sound is exactly how he wanted it.
"I've always loved films that approach sound in an impressionistic way and that is an unusual approach for a mainstream blockbuster, but I feel it's the right approach for this experiential film. Many of the filmmakers I've admired over the years have used sound in bold and adventurous ways. I don't agree with the idea that »

Whatever you might think about "Interstellar," there's no denying that there have been few films that have been as talked-about this year as Christopher Nolan's space drama. From the experience of watching the movie (in a format of your choosing), to the science behind it, or the many clichés it embraces, you've likely engaged in a healthy debate with someone about some aspect of Nolan's picture. But let's rewind things a little bit. As you might recall, "Interstellar" had been in the works initially as a vehicle for Steven Spielberg. When Christopher Nolan came along, he did a pretty big rewrite on his brother Jonathan Nolan's script, and while the latter has tended to play coy about the changes that were made, they were pretty substantial. Over at Slashfilm, they've gone in depth on the tweaks made to the Spielberg version of the movie, and some of them you likely already know, »

Directed by Christopher Nolan
A group of explorers 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.
Film: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship celluloid. It’s mission: to survive amongst the ever-growing digital age around it, to boldly go where many have gone before, but few venture to anymore. It’s strange to think that the filmmaking that got us to this very point in cinema history is close to extinction, but perhaps not as quickly as some think, especially if the director of Inception, Memento and The Dark Knight Trilogy gets his way. Interstellar, his latest multi-layered, multi-million dollar epic takes us to the »

Mackenzie Foy celebrated her birthday on the “Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon and guided him through the ins and outs of outer space and, closer to earth, her skill at Tae Kwon Do. Yes, she’s a black belt. Foy is on the talk show circuit promoting her new movie “Interstellar,” with Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey.

Interstellar has drawn mixed reactions from critics and fans alike, though it managed to hit number #2 at the box office this past weekend, beat only by the Disney family movie Big Hero 6. The film has caused some confusion amongst various viewers, and those who didn't like it have felt a compulsion to revisit it, which should keep it in the top five during its second weekend run. One of the questions a lot of people have about the movie is the science in it. How much is fact and how much is fiction? Talking with The Daily Beast, director Christopher Nolan has weighed in on some of the science criticisms aimed at the sci-fi drama.
Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has already discussed this issue at length, praising the science presented in the movie. And Christopher Nolan himself doesn't seem bothered by issues that anyone else might be having with the narrative, »
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Filed under Things We Never Thought We'd See is this game of Pyramid with Jeff Daniels, Usher, Nick Jonas, and Jimmy Fallon. Jeff was a guest on "The Tonight Show" Monday night, and Usher and Nick were enlisted for game duty. Usher was partnered with Jeff, and Nick with Jimmy. You can't miss Jeff's attempt to twerk as he demonstrates dance moves. It's a bit painful. Jimmy had to cover his eyes. Jeff: "Usher made me twerk for at least 30 seconds!" Ha. Fyi, Nick Jonas knows nothing about gangster movies. Literally nothing.
