Trivia

Anne Hathaway's character is named Amelia. This may be a nod to famous pilot Amelia Earhart who, like Hathaway's on-screen persona, was a woman who went further than any other person in exploring and flying. See more »

Goofs

The rocket launching from the underground facility was portrayed as a three-stage Saturn V booster. The rings of office windows in the silo would have been blown out on launch. The static test firings of the Saturn V's Rocketdyne F-1 motors at NASA's George C. Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) in Alabama were known to routinely blow out windows in downtown Huntsville well over five miles away. See more »

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.

Best movie I have seen in my life
8 April 2015 | by Patterson13See all my reviews

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.
