Somewhere at the cross-section of technological advancement and artistic expression lies Christopher Nolan. The director of The Dark Knight, Memento and Inception is well-known for being beholden to film, and in particular to IMAX film. IMAX continues to produce film cameras for directors like Nolan to use, but IMAX projection is quickly moving away from film. These days, an increasingly large percentage of IMAX theaters have digital projectors, and the company is working towards laser projection.
So where does that leave Nolan’s latest film, Interstellar? As in the past, Nolan shot much of Interstellar on IMAX film cameras. He would obviously prefer it be projected that on film, too. In a new interview, the president of IMAX said they’d oblige. Interstellar will be projected on IMAX film at “somewhere around 50″ theaters. Read More »

The first full trailer for Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar is now online. And it is excellent.
Starring Matthew McConaughey, the film shows us a world where food is becoming scarce. So a small group of explorers heads to the heavens in an attempt to solve mankind’s ultimate problem. Co-stars include Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck and Michael Caine, among others.
This new Interstellar trailer suggests a surprisingly emotional story of a father’s love for his daughter, and the incredible lengths he’ll go to to save her. Then, we actually get to see lots of Nolan’s vision of space, which looks like a lyrical, beautiful place.

Christopher Nolan spoke at CinemaCon Wednesday, and when Christopher Nolan talks people listen. Being as The Dark Knight director was at a theater owners conference, he advocated film projection as the best delivery of the moving image. He also said not enough filmmakers go to the movies anymore, urged theater owners to show more old movies, then dropped a bunch of cryptic hints about his latest film, Interstellar, which he shot on film and in IMAX. It’ll be released November 7, 2014.

Matthew McConaughey needs to give his management team a raise. The actor had a huge 2013, appearing in three Oscar-caliber films including Dallas Buyers Club, for which he was given his first Oscar-nomination. He also did the buzzy TV drama, True Detective, which could garner the actor an Emmy-nomination. McConaughey has never been hotter and yet he’s following up a huge 2013 with something even bigger. He’ll star in the sci-fi drama Interstellar by Christopher Nolan. Talk about perfect timing.
Very little is know about the plot of that film and yet, fans are still incredibly excited for Nolan’s latest. That anticipation could go through the roof thanks to McConaughey, who had some very big words about the November release. Read More »

Paramount made waves earlier this month when they announced that they would no longer release movies on film, becoming the first major studio to go all-digital. Except, it turns out, they’re not quite going all-digital. The company still plans to make rare exceptions for select pictures, including Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar. More details after the jump.

2013 was an amazing year for movies. There are still a couple big films from late in the year that I haven’t yet seen (my second cross-country move in the span of a year, left me scrambling to stay current for the year’s final quarter) and yet I’ve still got a list of favorite 2013 films that includes more than fifteen movies. With any luck I can spend the next evenings catching the couple last big ones to get that “best of ’13″ list out the door.
In the meantime, as many are I’m looking forward to 2014. The next year is absolutely packed-out for blockbusters, but there’s a lot of (potentially) good stuff to enjoy in 2014. Below is my own attempt to organize the coming year in movies, based on what we know right now.

The movies of 2013 were great and we’re all anxiously anticipating 2015, but let’s not overlook 2014. While the upcoming calendar isn’t packed as full of blockbusters that make film fans salivate, 2014 has some pretty awesome looking movies from several of the best filmmakers in the world. It has its share of massive franchise films too and while maybe they’re not Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Terminator or Batman fighting Superman, I’ll take Christopher Nolan, Paul Thomas Anderson, Cameron Crowe, Wes Anderson, the Wachowksis and David Fincher any day.
