When the menace known as the Joker emerges from his mysterious past, he wreaks havoc and chaos on the people of Gotham. The Dark Knight must accept one of the greatest psychological and physical tests of his ability to fight injustice.
Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, Batman, with the help of the enigmatic Catwoman, is forced from his exile to save Gotham City, now on the edge of total annihilation, from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane.
Earth's future has been riddled by disasters, famines, and droughts. There is only one way to ensure mankind's survival: Interstellar travel. A newly discovered wormhole in the far reaches of our solar system allows a team of astronauts to go where no man has gone before, a planet that may have the right environment to sustain human life.
When presenting the American Cinematheque award to Matthew McConaughey, Christopher Nolan said, "I'm not a believer in the McConaissance . . . I think Matthew's success of late is the rest of us catching up to what he's been doing . . . " Jennifer Garner talked about two different films she'd done with him and explained that he'd given the same gravity and intensity to both different genres, "and I can tell you as a director, there's no question that this is a performer who can't say, 'Pass the salt' without it being truthful, without meaning something . . . I've never worked with an actor so relentless in his pursuit of truth in everything he does." Nolan also recalled that while he was presenting the night's award to McConnaughey, he remembered how the super-dad would play with Nolan's own kids while on set: "I find him extremely serious. But my kids found him very amusing on his days off when he would build forts with them and his kids, thereby making me look like a slightly worse father." See more »

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.
