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.
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.Written by
Some of the "archive footage" interviews were filmed specifically for the production, and then altered by the visual effects teams to appear much older. See more »
After Cooper decides he is leaving for the mission, during ascent in the Ranger TARS announces first that he is "beginning roll pro-grade" then goes on to say "prepare for stage 1 separation... Stage 1... there it is, Mach 1." Instead TARS should have announced reaching Mach 1 long before Stage 1 separation. At this point in the ascent by the time the first stage is depleted they would already be going much faster than Mach 1, around 2,300 m/s which is closer to Mach 7. This is possible because as the vehicle gains altitude, air density drops, reducing aerodynamic drag and increasing terminal velocity, allowing the vehicle to go much faster than possible at sea level. The Apollo program utilized its first two stages this way: the first main ascent stage (S-IC) was capable of reaching the edge of the upper atmosphere, but at this point the vehicle would still reenter as it does not have the necessary horizontal velocity to achieve a full orbit. The second stage (S-II) would then be activated to build the horizontal velocity needed to achieve LEO (Low Earth Orbit). Staging is done this way on purpose (using maths) and is very important to save fuel, possibly the most important resource in space besides life support itself. In the movie, the rocket they show used to launch the Ranger is very reminiscent of the first two stages of the Saturn V (Apollo vehicle) with a Ranger attached on top. No operational launch vehicle has ever surpassed the Saturn V in height, weight, total impulse, or payload capability. As this is NASA and not a private space firm doing these missions, it is safe to assume they would re-use effective & proven older designs with slight modifications (payload is now a Ranger) to perform these missions, especially to save on time and development costs. Saturn V and Apollo program details per Wikipedia, knowledge of it per KSP and FAR. See more »
Why did you and mom name me after something that's bad?
Well, we didn't.
Murphy's law doesn't mean that something bad will happen. It means that whatever *can* happen, will happen. And that sounded just fine to us.

There are no opening credits, except for the title. See more »
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.

This movie was the best written, acted, visual effected, etc. movie. This movie was the best movie I have ever seen. I am a huge Christopher Nolan fan and this movie was his finest. Matthew McConaughey turned in his best performance of his lifetime. Anne Hathaway was an amazing supporting actress and compared to her performance in Les Miserables, I have no idea how she didn't get an Oscar for this. The visual effects were more than just Oscar worthy. They were pioneering. I have never seen anything like it. One thing I would recommend is having a little previous knowledge about space. Not like Einstein stuff though. I would recommend you see this movie as fast as you can if you are a Nolan fan or not. I give this movie a rating of 97 out of 100.
