Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar features a pretty powerful message about love, but it’s not all sweetness and light. It doesn’t shy away from the darker side of humanity, particularly in a third-act twist that puts our heroes in jeopardy.
In a new interview, Nolan discusses that divisive scene, laying out the logic and motivations that led to the big moment. We’re purposely being vague here because we’d hate to be the jerks who ruin the movie, so let’s just slap up a big fat spoiler warning and head to the jump where we can talk freely. Read More »

The tagline for Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar is “Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.” In all the discussions about the film post release, that idea has kind of been left in the dust (pun intended). The environmental issues in the film have been overshadowed by the science of the space sequences, and the sound in the theater. Hoping to focus attention back on that aspect of the film, Nolan and his team are doing a project to celebrate the planet we live on.
Nolan and his actors are asking fans, filmmakers and everyone in between to participate in a time capsule project. An Interstellar documentary, if you will, that will result in a film that showcases “memorable and inspiring moments of today to give future generations a way to remember where they came from.” David Brodie and Angus Wall are producing the film with Nolan curating the entries.

Major Spoilers For Interstellar
The finale of Interstellar has been quite a point of contention among film fans. Some intrinsically understand and decipher what Matthew McConaughey‘s character, Coop, experiences. Others are just totally in the dark and can’t grasp what’s happening once he goes into the black hole. And a very few actually know exactly what’s going on. No matter what, it would be nice to understand exactly what is happening once Coop begins floating around at the end of the film.
Enter Neil deGrasse Tyson, who has already had lots of interesting things to say about Christopher Nolan‘s film. In a new video, he explains how the five dimensions needed to understand the ending of Interstellar work in very plain, simple English. Watch the Interstellar ending explained by Neil deGrasse Tyson below. Read More »

Christopher Nolan has some more Interstellar goodness coming our way. No, it’s not a sequel — it’s an Interstellar comic book about Dr. Mann, the astronaut who sets out on a “Lazarus mission” long before Matthew McConaughey‘s Cooper ever sets out into space. Get a look at the Interstellar comic after the jump. (But be warned there are massive spoilers for Interstellar ahead.)

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
From the first screenings of Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar, you could hear the controversy coming. Audiences in different cities complained about the sound in the film. Nolan’s mix, or something in the presentation, resulted in several lines of dialogue – seemingly important lines – being blown out by sound effects and music. Was this an artistic choice by Nolan? Or was it the fault of individual theaters?
/Film reported on the sound issues, and as the story spread over days, no one would comment. Not Nolan’s camp, not Paramount Pictures and not IMAX. The only update was from one theater in upstate New York, which blamed Nolan for the sound. Now, finally, Nolan has responded to the controversy. Does he accept blame? Does he even think there’s a problem? Read Nolan’s quotes about the Interstellar sound problems below. Read More »
Over a week after our story about the sound problems in some theaters for Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar, neither Nolan’s camp or anyone from a major theater chain has offered any kind of explanation. It remains a mystery everywhere…except for one theater in upstate New York. They say it’s Christopher Nolan’s fault.
A patron of the Cinemark Tinseltown USA and IMAX in Rochester, NY tweeted an image of a sign posted outside theater. The sign says their sound system is fine and it was Christopher Nolan’s mix that’s the problem. Once news of the sign made it into the public, it was quickly taken down, but you can see it below.

Yesterday, I told you how astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson took to CBS News and Twitter to praise the scientific accuracy of Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar. This surprised many people because Tyson was very critical of Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity, even narrating a 9-minute long Everything Wrong With the movie Gravity video. But Neil deGrasse Tyson is not without questions, and has returned to list nine mysteries that have been bothering him. What logic holes keep Tyson up at night? Hit the jump.
