With veteran actor Michael Caine reciting the poem by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, we get to catch a third glimpse of Interstellar, the much awaited science fiction film by director Christopher Nolan. Set in a not so distant future when mankind faces a certain extinction, a group of explorers went forth into deep space via a wormhole in search of a Second Earth. However, in doing so, they left behind those they love to a uncertain future. A perfect representation of how Nolan constructs his film, there is a heartfelt emotional tuck in Interstellar apart from the fact that it belongs to the sci-fi adventure genre. Much like Memento, Insomnia, and Inception, Nolan also based much of Interstellar’s sciences on the latest research, mainly the works of physicist Kip Thorne, who first conceived film’s concept with producer Lynda Obst. The director of the Dark Knight Trilogy even went so far as attending CalTech to fully appreciate finite point of space, time and the theory of relativity.
Directed by Christopher Nolan with actors Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, and Michael Caine, Interstellar from Legendary Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros. and Syncopy will be in theaters this November.
