It seems Paramount can’t get enough of showcasing the beautiful alien vistas in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming space-set adventure, Interstellar; and quite frankly, neither can we. In these most recent images, the studio has provided us with an up-close and personal look at Matthew McConaughey’s Cooper, along with a rather beautiful banner poster.
As expected, the overall aesthetic of Interstellar looks, well, stellar, with chilling icy landscapes being the main attraction. Those inhospitable landscapes in particular will play a crucial role in the film’s plot, with humanity venturing out into the far reaches of space in order to find a surrogate home — as it happens, Nolan’s vision of Earth in the no-so-distant future is one ravaged by food shortages and climate change.
Here’s a brief description of the challenge facing McConaughey and Co., provided by the director himself.
“It’s a very classically constructed movie,” says Nolan, “but the freshness of the narrative elements really enhance it. I liken it to the blockbusters I grew up with as a kid, family films in the best sense: edgy, incisive, challenging.”
Judging from Nolan’s ambition, it appears as though Interstellar will endeavour to capture that Spielbergian movie magic found in blockbusters past. The film will star Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck and Michael Caine. In terms of the talent behind the camera, we understand that Hoyte van Hoytema will be in charge of cinematographer in lieu of Nolan’s long-term partner, Wally Pfister.
Interstellar is making the final preparations for launch, with Christopher Nolan’s latest project set to arrive in theaters on November 7th, 2014.
