Paramount Pictures just unveiled the official trailer for Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" sci-fi film, which stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain. Check it out below.
The script, co-written by Nolan, 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.
The new movie co-stars Bill Irwin, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck, David Gyasi, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Topher Grace, Timothee Chalamet, David Oyelowo, Ellen Burstyn, and Michael Caine. It's set to hit theaters on November 7th.
"Director of Inception & The Dark Knight Trilogy"
That's the moment where basically everyone who watched this trailer will know they are gonna go see it. Pathetic? yes, yes it is. And I'm not even saying it's gonna be bad, it's just too damn true.
Trailer looks as if it's summing up the first half of the movie. It doesn't actually go out of its way to show what happens after they achieve interstellar travel, unless it's just going to be 20 minutes of pretty space visuals.
lol. The world needs food, but in the next shot they're standing next to a flourishing corn field.
And again, it's the future, people are starving, yet someone drives a wood-paneled station wagon to work and they have time too play baseball?
So they go into space to find...food? Are they looking for an interstellar Aldis or something? Why not mine the moon, or the Sun, or the atmosphere of Jupiter? Really contrived nonsense.
And how does the big rocket end up in the cornfield? Did they build it there? Why wouldn't Matt go to where the rocket is and not vice versa?
Why does the "wormhole" look like the f*cking sphere from Sphere?
And of course there's Michael Caine, and of course the movie is dark and depressing and gloomy. What a surprise. And that's one reason Nolan will never approach the craft of Cameron who knew how to deftly weave humor, hope and happiness into his films.
P.S. If you watch the trailer sans music, it loses all of its visceral emotional punch and greatly resembles an incoherent quick-cut demo reel of science fiction films from the 1990s, and We Are Marshall.
Thanks Scott, Cameron and Nolan for ruining theatrical sci-fi.
Dutch director George Sluizer’s 20-year quest to complete River Phoenix’s final movie -- including rescuing rolls of film from a London warehouse before they were burned -- has culminated with Lionsgate buying North American rights to Dark Blood.
While attending the press junket for the Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ picture, director Gareth Edwards said a lot of ideas didn't make it into the final film during a roundtable interview. However, the one that hit him the hardest was a brief scene with "Godzilla" actor Akira Takarada who appeared in six versions of the film including the 1954 original.
@Tanman: yep. Read the story, which is very interesting. Basically the film was ordered destroyed but was rescued from a warehouse in the dead of night. And supposedly only 65% of the movie was shot, which meant rewriting the story and doing heavy edits.
Should be interesting mink. I can't wait for James Gandolfinis last film role. Think it's called "The drop" looks promising. I remember seeing what was called "His last film" called enough said. Was pretty damn good.
Considering it was a comedy. Which he usually doesnt dabble into, it was good.
Usually when an actor dies his last film role is great. It could be a coincidence or it could be the fact that they JUST passed as we miss them so no matter what they do we find it good. Regardless, it's a good film lol
@Tanman: perhaps, but I think we're often much kinder to a dead celebrity with respect to their last role than if that person had lived and continued working. I think it's an emotional perceptional thing, like seeing the same number on a clock and thinking it holds special significance.
Having said that, James should have known better, and it's as if he committed suicide, because he had to have known the weight, the drinking and the smoking would shorten his life dramatically, as it did.
Don't get Me wrong, I'm damn well aware that he more or less pissed his life away with heavy drinking, smoking and eating. But I'm always one to say it sucks for the fans. I loved his work and he was a truely good actor (at least in my perspective). But I really do agree with what
As for the viper room, I've read about it. Damned Johnny depp and his drug dealing club!
@Tanman: James was a good actor, but as I tried to say when he died...people should not let his death give them reason to applaud him when in life they found no reason to champion his work. In other words...he died, and if you didn't care for him when he was alive, no need to pretend he's the best thing ever now. Same with Paul Walker, which is why I was adamant that regardless of his death and how he died, he was a pretty poor actor, which can't be said about Gandolfini.
And yeah, the Viper Room...lol, but hell, that's nothing new, especially in SoCal.
Wait, did people start praising Paul Walker's work when he died? That's ridiculous. I can think of one movie he was decent in, and that's Running Scared. The movie itself was a joke, but he did an alright job of acting in it.
