Interstellar McConaughey Nolan

Two weeks from Tuesday, theaters with film projectors start screening Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar. That means a few things. One, you better get your tickets. And two, it’s time to begin managing expectations and avoiding spoilers. Over the past few days, the film has begun screening for general audiences, celebrity audiences and press alike. Attendees are usually embargoed from going on social media about early screenings but that very rarely stops people. And if the reactions are positive, studios usually don’t care.

As expected some of those early Interstellar reaction tweets are positive. Very positive. Plus, they suggest while Nolan continues to compare his film to 2001: A Space Odyssey, he’s made something that has wider appeal than Kubrick’s polarizing masterpiece. Below, read about some early Twitter buzz about Interstellar.

UPDATE: We’ve added the reactions of some of Hollywood’s most well respected filmmakers and fans such as Rian Johnson, Patton Oswalt and more.

First up, here are some random Interstellar reaction tweets:

But we don’t know those people. How about a reaction from some people we do know?

And an UPDATE. Here are some more reactions out of a recent LA screening:

That’s cool, right? Here’s another pieces of evidence. According to Page Six, the head of Paramount Brad Grey held a private screening of Interstellar Sunday evening in New York City. Among the attendee were directors Ang Lee and Steve McQueen, actors Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Rock, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick and the awesome Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson. It doesn’t look like any of them have tweeted about it yet, but just screening the movie like that at all is a pretty big stamp of approval. They don’t do that for everything.

Interstellar is opening in multiple formats. There’s 70mm IMAX, 70mm film, 35mm film, IMAX, 4k digital and regular digital. As previous mentioned, the 70mm IMAX screenings, 70mm and 35mm film screenings will all open November 5, which really means 8 p.m. November 4. Everywhere else opens November 7.
