The Pulse of Entertainment: ‘Interstellar,’ Where Reality Meets Creativity, in Theaters Now

Oscar winner Matthew McCounaughtey stars in the Warner Bros'/Paramount Pictures presentation of Interstella.

Warner Bros. Pictures and Paramount Pictures present Interstellar starring Oscar winners Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club) and Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables) – it arrives in theaters November 7, 2014. Interstellar is a science fiction film where reality meets creativity. The realistic visuals of space, the galaxies, the black hole, and space worm-holes were breath-takingly real.

The Rated PG-13 movie focuses on a dying earth at a time when the only chance of survival is to find a new planet. A former pilot and engineer, Cooper (McConaughey), has been enlisted to lead a team to follow up on 12 explorers from earth. The explorers were sent to 12 different galaxies through worm-holes looking for an inhabitable planet.

The problem, the time difference, they have to travel through a space worm-hole where two weeks to them is two years on earth. Of course things go wrong and each mistake means more time for them, and more years for earth. It’s a rush against the clock – will anyone be alive? Cooper agrees to help save the world even though he has to leave his teenage son, Tom (Timothee Chalamet) and young daughter Murph (Mackenzie Foy).

Murph takes the news hard and doesn’t say goodbye to her father. This becomes the passion that fuels her to – through time and space – help her father. It also fuels Cooper in his passion to return home to her – through time and space – communicate with her. Coopers’ team consists of Dr. Amelia Brand (Hathaway), scientist Romilly (David Gyasi), Doyle (Wes Bentley), and two military machines CASE and TARS.

Interstellar is directed by Academy Award winning Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, Inception). It also stars Academy Award winner Matt Damon (Bourne franchise), Oscar nominated Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Oscar winner Ellen Burstyn (Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore), Oscar nominated John Lithgow (Terms of Endearment), Oscar winner Michael Caine (Inception), Casey Affleck (Tower Heist), Topher Grace (Spiderman 3), and Tony Award winner Bill Irwin (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf). The script was written by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan.

Producers include Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Lynda Obst, with Jordan Goldberg, Jake Myers, Kip Thorne and Thomas Tull as executive producers. The score was composed by Oscar winner Hans Zimmer (The Lion King). Interstellar is presented in association with Legendary Pictures, a Syncopy/Lynda Obst Productions production – a Christopher Nolan film.
