Trivia

Hans Zimmer's score for Interstellar bears a striking resemblance to his previous iconic theme "Journey to the Line" from The Thin Red Line (1998). That theme was born out of trial and error. Terrence Malick had been dissatisfied with Zimmer's score, and had Zimmer continuously reworking melodies, to come up with various approaches to the music. Thus "Journey to the Line" was finally born. Many of his latter scores (especially Interstellar) would go on to bear an uncanny resemblance, or seem to work as variations building on that theme.

Goofs

When Getty is at the house with Murph to check on Coop's lungs, he notices Lois coughing. When he asks her how long she's had her cough, she replies off-camera "A while." However, her reflection can be seen in the window behind Getty, & as she says "A while", her reflection instead shows her coughing into her arm. See more »

Ms. Kelly: I believe it was a brilliant piece of propaganda, that the Soviets bankrupted themselves, pouring resources into rockets and other useless machines...

Ms. Kelly: And if we don't want to repeat of the excess and wastefulness of the 20th Century then we need to teach our kids about this planet, not tales of leaving it.

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.

'Interstellar'
5 November 2014 | by millert1409See all my reviews

'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.
