Interstellar review

29 October 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Christopher Nolan goes on his own space odyssey with the grand Interstellar. Here’s our spoiler-free review...

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 »

‘Interstellar’ Review: Pete Hammond On Christopher Nolan’s Out-Of-This World Experience

28 October 2014 3:31 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Check out my video review of the much-anticipated latest film from director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight trilogy, Memento), starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine, among quite a number of other terrific actors. The film follows the riveting saga of an astronaut charged with leaving behind his beloved family as he goes searching outer space for the future home of the entire human race.

Nolan and his brother Jonathan Nolan wrote the screenplay, with effects by Double Negative (which won an Oscar for its work on Nolan’s Inception) and cinematography by Hoyte Van Hoytema (Her, the next James Bond film). Interstellar was produced Christopher Nolan, Lynda Obst and Emma Thomas. It is being distributed by Paramount, Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures.

Are you going to see the film? Let us know what you think.

Why Interstellar Is the Most Down-to-Earth Space Movie Yet

27 October 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

For all its splashy galactic imagery and action sequences, Interstellar might be one of the most grounded movies about space ever made. Director Christopher Nolan and his screenwriter brother, Jonathan Nolan, let the same ideas that propelled their films Memento and Inception - that human love transcends time, space, even death - inspire their storytelling in a film destined to divide audiences and critics. As Earth descends into an inhospitable dust bowl, Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), an engineer who was long ago forced by circumstance to trade his dream job for a more mundane existence as a farmer, is called upon by Nasa to lead a group of three astronauts in the search for another, livable planet. The leader of that crew is the whip-smart but sheltered Amelia (Anne Hathaway); her father, Professor Brand (Michael Caine), is overseeing the project. As the foursome travels throughout distant galaxies, their journey becomes increasingly metaphysical and philosophical. »

'Interstellar' Reviews: Is It Christopher Nolan's Best Movie Yet?

27 October 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Will Christopher Nolan's Interstellar be the heralded filmmaker's first ever flop, or will mainstream audiences respond to what is being called a very personal and ambitious film with big ideas? We'll have to wait a few more weeks to find out, but the first wave of reviews have come in, and they are not as overwhelmingly positive as his previous work. The sci-fi thriller currently has a 72% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a number which will surely change as more reviews come in before the November 7 release. The aggregate score so far represents his lowest Rt score to date for his first eight films:

Following - 78% Fresh

Memento - 92% Fresh

Insomnia - 92% Fresh

Batman Begins - 85% Fresh

The Prestige - 78% Fresh

The Dark Knight - 94% Fresh

Inception - 86% Fresh

The Dark Knight Rises - 88% Fresh

Interstellar - 72%

‘Interstellar’ Blasts Off Into Oscar Race And Beyond: How Far Will It Fly?

27 October 2014 12:22 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The wait is finally over. The veil over one of the year’s most anticipated films has been lifted. So is Interstellar going to be a blockbuster hit? A major Oscar contender? A good movie?

The answer is all three. The film started screening in earnest last week with a Wednesday night “tastemaker” showing at the California Science Center IMAX that was heavily attended by Oscar voters (just as it had been in NYC a couple of nights earlier). But Paramount, as has been the case with all Christopher Nolan films, kept the movie shrouded in secrecy and had put a strict embargo on reviews and plot discussion until this morning (one online trade posted a spoiler-heavy piece after that Wednesday screening, but much of it mysteriously disappeared once the studio saw it in the morning.) There have been numerous screenings since, including a couple for the SAG nominating committee »

Interstellar review: Christopher Nolan's most emotional film yet ★★★★

27 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

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.

But in Interstellar, love is an end in itself, and the only one that really matters. Based on the work of astrophysicist Kip Thorne, the Nolan brothers' script traverses »

When will Christopher Nolan make a smaller movie again?

26 October 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Beverly Hills — Four years ago, when he was in the thick of an "Inception" Oscar campaign, I couldn't help but ask Christopher Nolan if he had any desire to go back to more modest filmmaking, smaller films akin to "Memento," which debuted at Slamdance in 1999. "It depends on the story, really," he said, unsurprisingly. "I tend to think that if you have the chance to do a big film, you should do it while you can. I’m always worried maybe I won’t be able to do a big film again." Apparently. Since that time the director has cranked out his two longest films to date, "The Dark Knight Rises" and now "Interstellar." The latter finds him painting on his largest canvas to date, and conversely, it also provides some of the most intimate character relationship opportunities he's had in a while. At a press conference for the film last week, »

Watch: 'Spaceballs' Gets a Makeover with an 'Interstellar' Style Trailer

23 October 2014 8:04 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

For fans of Star Wars, there are few comedies that bring as much joy as Mel Brooks' classic spoof Spaceballs. From Rick Moranis' great turn as the villain Dark Helmet to the late Joan Rivers as a scratchy voiced, lady C-3Po named Dot Matrix, there's just so much to love about this movie. And while Brooks is a master of comedy (he even planned a joke that will last forever with his Hollywood Walk of Fame handprint this year), YouTube user The Unusual Suspect has decided to give Spaceballs a dramatic makeover by giving the film a trailer in the style of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, and it's pretty cool. Here's the Interstellar style trailer for Mel Brooks' Spaceballs from YouTube (via Live For Films): For more on Interstellar see: fan-art posters, five new TV spots, third official trailer and the official website.

Oscars News: Will 'Interstellar' finally be Christopher Nolan's ticket to his first Oscar win?'

17 October 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Jeff Jensen offers an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at potential Oscar kingpin "Interstellar." Directed by Christopher Nolan, the sci-fi epic opens on November starring recent Academy Award winners Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway across the universe to try and "find salvation for the human race." The epic is timed at two hours, 47 minutes and is compared more to the serious-minded "2001: A Space Odyssey" than the escapist "Star Wars." Nolan says, "We are at an interesting moment where science realizes it has to begin addressing abstractions and human elements, and I wanted to get that in the film. It also speaks to the heart of the movie and the dilemma facing our characters." After three previous Oscar nods for "Memento" and "Inception" (and a snub for "The Dark Knight"), Nolan is still looking for his first victory.

Inside 'Interstellar,' Christopher Nolan's emotional space odyssey

16 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

They say we don't go to outer space anymore. But Christopher Nolan is doing a pretty good job of faking it. It's October 2013, and we are on the set of code name Flora's Letter, a.k.a. Interstellar, an epic sci-fi adventure that represents the beginning of the director's post-Batman life. Working on the same soundstage where he once built a dank batty cave for Christian Bale to skulk in, the British-American helmer has constructed a starship to take Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway across the universe to find salvation for the human race. On screen that ship, the Endurance, »

Entertainment Geekly Mailbag: Batman talkback!

6 October 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Big week for Bat-talk! Last week, I published a couple Geekly columns focusing on the Dark Knight Detective. First, I drew up my list of the hundred greatest Batman comics, movies, TV episodes, etc. Then I considered whether it was possible to have entirely too much Batman at one time. And would you believe it, everyone has an opinion about Batman–and a ton of great recommendations! Read on for the highlights. Darren Franich was dead-on right in his piece 'Dark Knight Fatigue Rises,' but from just one perspective. In July of 2013, Cartoon Network debuted DC Animation's new CG series "Beware the Batman. »

Watch: New Trailer for Nicole Kidman Starrer 'Before I Go To Sleep'

6 October 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Having read (and enjoyed) the book by S.J. Watson and now seeing the filmed adaptation of Before I Go To Sleep (10/31) has gone to Clarius Entertainment, I feel like I'm going to have to pass on the upcoming thriller in which Nicole Kidman stars as a woman who wakes up every day, remembering nothing as a result of a traumatic accident in her past. One day, new terrifying truths emerge that force her to question everyone around her. It's one thing to read the description of the novel and seeing it compared to Christopher Nolan's Memento and then reading the book, but it was never a story that would easily translate to the big screen, at least not in a way that looks as hacky as what Rowan Joffe has done here. amz asin="B004GUSG4M" size="small"When you're reading the novel it doesn't have any of these massive visual flourishes, »

Three major cinematographers – Janusz Kaminski (“Lincoln”), Phedon Papamichael (“Nebraska”) and Wally Pfister (“The Dark Knight Rises”) – have teamed to present Advanced Filmmaking, a series of online instructional videos for aspiring filmmakers.

“We conceived Advanced Filmmaking as a way to communicate lessons that aren’t normally covered in film school,” says Papamichael. “In our interactions with students and young filmmakers around the world, we saw a thirst for information about other topics like successful collaboration, making good career decisions and managing your personal life.”

Course modules vary in length, averaging about a half hour, and can be can be rented for one week via video sharing site Vimeo for $3.95.

Looking back at the Amityville Horror franchise

30 September 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sarah looks back at the Amityville films, and finds a lot of scary things, not all of which were intentional…

112 Ocean Avenue, Long Island is probably the most famous haunted house in the world. Not that you’ll necessarily recognise the address – it’s far better known as the Amityville Horror house. Back in 1975, George and Kathy Lutz moved their family into the house… and then 28 days later, they moved back out, claiming to have been driven out by supernatural forces. Their story made the news, was turned into a book, and then made into a movie, in 1979.

It’s hard to imagine now that a family claiming to have encountered the devil in their basement could cause such a massive fuss, but I’m not here to interrogate the truth of their statement. What I am here to do, though, is to watch all of the Amityville Horror movies made to date, »

Matthew McConaughey on Another World in New 'Interstellar' Poster

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. »
