Trivia

Screenwriter Jonathan Nolan worked on the script for four years. To learn the scientific aspects, he studied relativity at the California Institute of Technology. Jonathan was pessimistic about the Space Shuttle program ending and how NASA lacked financing for a human mission to Mars, drawing inspiration from science fiction films with apocalyptic themes, such as WALL-E (2008) and Avatar (2009).

Goofs

Approaching the black hole the gravity increases rapidly with the reduced distance to the event horizon (divided with the square of the distance between the two mass objects) i.e. if the distance is halved, the gravity increases by a factor of four. Getting really close to the event horizon every object experiences stronger pull to its parts closer to the event horizon than to those that are further away from it. All objects with mass and size (e.g. humans or space ships) would get torn apart as a result of different gravity acting on their parts. No one and nothing with mass and size can enter or even approach the black hole undamaged. See more »

Quotes

[They land on Miller's Planet, which has severe gravitational time dilation]
Brand: [sardonically] Very graceful.
Cooper: No. But very efficient.
[He looks at Doyle, who has been alarmed by the landing, and then at Brand]
Cooper: What are you waiting for? Let's go. Go, go, go, go go! Seven years per hour here. Let's make it count.

Crazy Credits

The Warner Bros, Paramount, Syncopy and Legendary Pictures logos are brown and dusty, representing Earth's arid dry state in the film. See more »

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.

Glad i didn't watch the trailer

Interstellar - Review

Certain things in life are precious. Very precious. And so was the Film for me.

Why you might ask?

Well seldom do i get the chance where i find myself sitting in a cinema anxious and intrigued by what might come. In a time where trailers are omnipresent and going to the movies without having seen one seems unreasonable, outright stupid to some i had the magical chance to find myself in front of the IMAX on a cold November night with 2 tickets to Interstellar. My only knowledge was that Nolan directed it and McConaughey stars in it.

The images were brilliant the acting was top notch and everything was blended together by Hans Zimmer and his Music. 169 minutes flew by me with my eyes fixed on the screen and my heart racing. And there it was.. The ending. I couldn't believe it . I was reliving, rethinking the movie while the credit scenes rolled enjoying the moment, the smell of popcorn, my comfortable seat and what do i see next to me? Ninety percent of the people in the cinema rushing outside after the first second of the credit scenes.

..

.

Well apparently people enjoy movies different than i do. Maybe i should start watching trailers again :).
