There’s a certain level of secrecy in Christopher Nolan films, that I’m certain other film directors are dead jealous of. This is a director who knows how to keep a tight lid on his projects, preventing any secrets from spilling out. Interstellar was no different, because up until the first trailers arrived, we had no idea what the hell the film was even about. Time for a third trailer, which gives that little bit more detail then. But only a little. Still, it’s the most gorgeous space porn that you’ll see this side of the Butterfly Nebula.
“Interstellar” chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.
I’m quite keen for this flick. When he’s given the chance to direct original features, Nolan has a terrific batting record, and Interstellar might be this generation’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Never mind the fact that it has a solid cast, what looks like fantastic effects and that delicious IMAX hook to it as well. If you’re interested in seeing some of the real world science behind the film, then enjoy this feature from scientist Kip Thorne:
