In the near future, Earth has been devastated by drought and famine, causing a scarcity in food and extreme changes in climate. When humanity is facing extinction, a mysterious rip in the space-time continuum is discovered, giving mankind the opportunity to widen its lifespan. A group of explorers must travel beyond our solar system in search of a planet that can sustain life. The crew of the Endurance are required to think bigger and go further than any human in history as they embark on an interstellar voyage into the unknown.

For a cornfield scene, Christopher Nolan sought to grow 500 acres of corn, which he learned was feasible from his producing of Man of Steel (2013). The corn was then sold and actually made a profit. See more »
After Dr. Mann blowups up part of Endurance and sends it spinning, Cooper must match its spin by spinning the shuttle to dock with it. Both Cooper and Dr.Brand can be seen leaning toward the right when the shuttle starts to spin. They return to the upright position when the shuttle has successfully docked with Endurance and both stopped spinning by using the shuttle's retro-thrusters. When the shuttle and Endurance spin at the same speed, they are both in a uniform circular motion, so the only force felt by Cooper and Dr. Brand should be the centripetal force pointing towards the spinning axis, which is behind their seats. They should only feel tangential acceleration that can rotate their seats when the circular motion is not uniform (i.e. when the shuttle spins up and the shuttle plus Endurance slow down). The correct reaction should be: they lean to the right when the shuttle spins up, return to the upright position when the RPM matches, then lean to the left when they slow down, and finally return to the upright position when Endurance stops spinning.

'Interstellar' was incredible. The visuals, the score, the acting, were all amazing. The plot is definitely one of the most original I've seen in a while. Most of the critic reviews have said that some bits are a little too unbelievable, but I have to disagree. Yes, there were some parts that were definitely in the "fi" part of sci-fi. But the thing is, 'Interstellar' deals with concepts that we know very little about. We have no idea what the 4th or 5th dimension is like, or what it would be like to go through a wormhole or a black hole. I don't think it's fair to call something unbelievable, when we have absolutely no idea what WOULD be believable in those circumstances. Either way, excellent writing from the Nolan brothers. The visuals were outstanding, and will no doubt be nominated for an Oscar. The performances were excellent, though nothing Oscar worthy, as is the case with most of Nolan's films ('The Dark Knight' being the obvious exception). Hans Zimmer's score was amazing and blended perfectly with the film. All in all, 'Interstellar' is an excellent movie, which I personally think is Nolan's most beautiful film to date.
