Trivia

This movie parodies the story that the moon landings were faked by the government. It's used in the movie as an attempt to quell future generations' enthusiasm for space travel. Amazingly, real-life conspiracy theorists claim that Stanley Kubrick directed the television footage of the landings, using leftover props from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), which is one of the inspirations for this movie.

Goofs

According to the exterior views of the Endurance, the individual modules would have very high ceilings. To move between them you would have to climb a ladder and then crawl through a tunnel and climb back down a ladder.

This is not reflected in any of the scenes we see inside the Endurance. See more »

Quotes

Cooper: Did it work?
TARS: I think it might have.
Cooper: How do you know?
TARS: Because, the bulk beings are closing the tesseract.
Cooper: Don't you get it yet, TARS? They're not *beings*... they're us! What I've been doing for Murph, they're doing for me, for all of us.
TARS: Cooper, people couldn't build this.
Cooper: No. No, not yet. But one day. Not you and me, but a people, a civilization that's evolved beyond the four dimensions we know.
[the tesseract closes around him in a brilliant flash of light]
Cooper: What happens now?

Alternate Versions

The 70mm IMAX version is two minutes shorter than the regular 70mm, Digital IMAX, 35mm, and digital projection versions. This is because the end credits are played in an abbreviated slide-show form (rather than scrolling from bottom to top), due to the size capacity of the IMAX platters, which can hold a maximum of 167 minutes of film.

A Visually Monumental And Thoughtful Sci-Fi Epic
8 November 2014 | by CalRhysSee all my reviews

I was extremely lucky to get the chance to see this film upon its first day release, before entering the cinema, my expectations were already high, after all, this was a film from the cinematic genius who brought us the likes of 'Inception' and 'The Dark Knight', to summarise the following review in a single sentence: I left the cinema in extreme awe from the visual masterpiece I had just viewed. A film that explores the psychological and emotional state of a man whose life revolves around his family, 'Interstellar' is a thrilling and thought-provoking film that boasts an intellectual story masterfully written by the Nolan brothers. Whilst there seems to have been influence from films like '2001: A Space Odyssey' and 'Apollo 13', 'Interstellar' is unique in its own way. Whilst the subject may be hard to comprehend at times, it can't be denied how visually monumental and thoughtful Christopher Nolan's epic science fiction masterpiece is, and can easily be named the best film of this year and possibly one of the greatest science fiction films to have ever graced the screen. A sheer brilliant feat of cinema.
